I am by no means an expert, but that's an awfully nice swing you got there.  Hopefully, you'll get some good pointers from another member who knows more than me.

There is a slight sway most likely because you need to flare your feet out at set up and not enough hip turn in the backswing because if that.. Also looks like you release the club really early in the downswing and there is major casting going on.. If you are a 9 hcp I suggest you only get instruction from the guys at evolvr as that will help you get to next level if you are serious about improving.. I think they will help you get more distance too in my opinion..

thanks, Sounds about right, I'll look in to that. Distance isn't really an issue though.

I see the sway it's obvious now that you pointed it out, the casting , yes it might be some of that left, the release yeah i'll work on it but it might prove difficult my right vrist is almost stiff due to an old injury.

You are standing a bit to much over your toes, and your head is slightly to high. I bet you look down your nose at the ball, rather than have it centered in your eyes. Look at Rory on the left, his head is down, standing closer, weight balance between the heels and the balls of his feet. So stand a bit closer, head looking down at the ball more, arms hanging more under your neck and shoulders than over your chin and nose, and better weight distribution.

I would take your current feet width, and just rotate your heels inward a bit. This will flare your feet, and help with hip rotation and keeping your weight forward at impact. Just a standard tip, helps fixes some stuff for free.

Yea you got a bit of a sway there. It looks like its because you are over extending your right side by raising your hands way to high. Which means you are either over swinging or you are not opening your hips early enough in the back swing. I would try to get more flex in the left leg in the back swing, and keep the left knee from going towards the ball that much. Get your right hip to go up and back sooner. Your right leg should straighten out a bit (not lock).

The final thing I see is you are flipping at the ball. Your left hand should be ahead of the ball at impact. Yours is inline, which isn't ideal for an iron shot.

Sounds like excellent advice, I'll work on that next time at the indoor range. It's about 10f outside so outdoors isn't really an option.

I'm at home,having a cold, fever, "sniffels" what have you.

however I am in my week state trying to stop my casting and swaying.

What do you guys think?

Feet are too square, knees are rotated inward. Flare the feet out and turn the knees out as well. Will help with the proper knee linkage to keep the hips centered.

With the swing it will feel like the left knee flexes slightly inward and "towards the camera" (if a camera was filming you from face on). Note how the right hip moves away from that green line.

No problem, be interested to see/hear how it goes when you hit a ball.
