I've been Playing Golf for: 12 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 15

My typical ball flight is: draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: thin

(Sorry I blocked out my face because I want to remain anonymous and I do also have a stupid expression at impact.)

My pro sent me these pictures (I don't have any video footage) and said these are the four most important parts of the swing.

At present we are working on improving my impact position which he said should resemble my address position as in P1/P3. As you can all see I seem to have done this quite well but still can't seeem to get any distance out of my shots.

Is my pro leading me up the garden path or is there another reason why I am lacking or losing power?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Actually...to my eye, impact position does not look the same.  It appears your left wrist has broken down and you are flipping the club.  The instructors here emphasize a "flat left wrist" at impact. As you can see your left wrist is a bit bowed back.

Your pro is not leading you down the wrong path. Plus, he is going to be able to do a lot more for you while seeing you live.  As my first boss told me:  if you are going to pay someone for their advice, you should take it.

    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.  
    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      Try and get individuals to contribute.  If you have a hundred golfers each contributing a hundred dollars, that is 10,000$.  Easier sometimes than convincing a business to contribute say 5,000$.  The second thing is make it a fun family day with some events post the round.  Your spouse and kids will enjoy the day and you are more likely to spend some money.  Say a stall selling small knick-knacks or stuff for kids etc. Sad that you can get a stroke at 26, but why can't they figure out what is wrong with her anyway
