  1. My Swing (Cthaeeh)

    No problem. Terms like A4 and A5 a re used a lot throughout this site. They are the alignments in the swing, it just makes it easier to talk about different parts of the swing. A1 - address A2 - club shaft parallel to the ground A3 - left arm parallel to the ground A4 - top of back swing A5 - left arm parallel to the ground A6 - club shaft parallel to the ground A7 - impact There are a few more after impact too. There's a really good thread which shows the alignments:

    I'm no expert but I have a few comments which I hope are useful. I'd start off tweaking your address position a little. Flare your feet outwards which will also turn your knees out slightly. Tilt your head down so you're looking at the ball out of the middle of your eyes rather than the bottom. Rounding your back will help with this - there's a good thread on this here - A centred pivot (not moving to the right on the backswing) may help - achieve this by keeping a steady head - Your downswing looks very steep, and out to in which will be creating the pulls / slices depending on where the club face is pointing on that particular swing. Taking your hands more to the inside (rather than straight back) in the takeaway will help as they will be deeper - - this will help you swing more from the inside. Also, I think that if you can flatten out the club shaft between A4 and A5 (this is what I'm currently working on) then that will help you swing more from the inside. This image shows how shallow your hands are and how steep your downswing is (approx A5) compared to the angle you set at address.

    Oops. Fixed now.
  4. My Swing (keeps21)

    A little better again. I've also found that pushing my hips through faster, more aggressively helps me to hit out of the middle of the club face rather than towards the hosel which is something I've been struggling with. I don't like how much my head moves away from the target between A6 and A7 but that's not my priority piece for now. (unless it's a very simple fix).
  5. 5SK Video Thread

    That's the one. Thanks very much!
  6. 5SK Video Thread

    Is there a webpage or playlist that groups all videos for each key together? I'm sure I've seen one in the past - just can't find it again!
  7. Yep, I've been meaning to find something to level things out. Even toyed with the idea of digging a hole to sit it in, but I don't think the wife would be too happy about that!
  8. I'd definitely recommend Evolvr and I'm sure a lot more people on here would too. The tethered ball thing... personally, I think I'd rather have a net but it doesn't take up as much room. It allows me to practice at home for free so I can't complain about it. One pro is that I don't have to worry about shanks as the balls not going to get away - I guess on a bad one it could miss the net. The main issue I have with it is that it's about an inch thick so the ball is higher than your feet. A pro of a net is as you'd get at least some idea of the starting line of your shot.
  9. It's online lessons. Submit a video they'll give you a video analysis back with something to work on. Well worth the price. The instructors are all (I think) members on here too! I keep my lessons in a youtube playlist, you could have a look at my lessons to see what to expect :-)
  10. I agree. That's what Evolvr do. Have you work on one priority piece at a time (and maybe a very simple change elsewhere).
  11. My Swing (keeps21)

    I agree it'd be useful to see where the ball is going now and again but I put my trust into Stephan, and Evolvr, the piece I'm working on is my priority piece as diagnosed by Stephan. Easier to change the picture when you're not worrying about where the ball is going every shot.
  12. My Swing (keeps21)

    Getting better. Working on laying the shaft down more beteen a4 and a5.
  13. My Swing (keeps21)

    Still working on the same priority piece as above - getting better.
  14. 2014-2015 NHL Season

    I'm not so sure, that'd result in 17 teams in the east and only 13 in the western conference wouldn't it?
  15. My Swing (keeps21)

    Everything looks better until A7 when it's just a massive shank... can't help but think my head dipping down so much in the downswing is causing me to run out of room at impact so it's either hit the floor, or swing outside of the ball causing a shank.
