The most noticeable thing I saw was that on the down swing your head/body moves downward too much. I saw other things, but I'm not an expert, so I'll defer those things to the experts on here.

I would suggest having a look at the 5 simple keys here.  http://purestrike5sk.com/videos.php these video's are great for improving your swing.

BTW, welcome to the site.

Thanks. And thanks. I'm aware I've got the ott swing, and upper body moves on downswing. Itonly happens when I hit the ball, not in practice swings etc so its probably my mind saying 'hit it!'

Your head moves around so much because your backswing is flat (this camera angle will exaggerate how steep it looks, and the numbers aren't necessarily accurate, but they are representative), and then to hit the ball you steepen. This steepening prevents the weight from getting forward and the hips from opening because since you've steepened, you then have to "early extend" a bit which slows the rotation.

So the fix is to clean up your backswing.

1. Flare your feet out.

2. Take your right hip up more and your left shoulder down more during the backswing.

3. Make 3/4 swings at 25% speed doing that for quite awhile.

P.S. Somewhat similar to @David in FL 's lesson. You too aim right and pull your shots.

Thanks!

I'll have a practice at that and post another video when I think I've got it, or at least got it close. I've just taken a look at the other thread and can imagine how 'inside' my backswing is. I'll try and get my phone off the floor for videoing, rather than wedged in my shoes. Would a face view help as well?

Update: Had a bit of a practice and thought I'd video it, to make sure I was going in the right direction. Thoughts? [URL]http://youtu.be/FML5n3axRoQ[/URL] [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FML5n3axRoQ&feature;=youtu.be[/VIDEO]

Going to update this as a mini journal. Played 18 for the first time in a few years this weekend, shot 104.

43 putts

2 9's and an 8 - kind of expected a few blow up holes really.

Hit some decent shots for my standard though. I could tell I hadn't played for a while when I left a wedge next to the previous green, embarrassing walk back to get it!

Shot my new lowest score on Saturday. 89.

Hit 0 greens. Only 30 putts. Shame it was only a casual round.
