    Jeff Ritter's Online Swing Analysis
    I like Jeff Ritters teaching videos, and was playing around on his site. I saw that he has an online swing analysis for $50, of course you video your swing and send it to him, and then received feedback and instruction. Has anyone done this? What were your thoughts? Helpful? Was it a detailed analysis? Was it indepth enough or just a simple analysis... meaning I know some of the issues I have, but am having a hard time correcting... so my thoughts are does his analysis provide solutions or just a diagnosis?

    Thanks in advance.

    btw: I am not asking to rate his teaching or methods just simply whether you have any experience with his online swing analysis and the feedback you got from it.

    Nice thread... I too am trying to get back into shape..  I have recently had to give up Triathlon training due to knee surgeries, and at 37 my time to enjoy a lifetime game is finally here (so I am fully dedicated to learning Golf)... but I am trying to get back in shape since I fell so out of shape due to the knee limitations..

    Age 37   Height:  5'11   Weight:  200  (5/17/11)

    I am an Orthopedic Sales rep. I work with Surgeons in the operating who use our implants for total joint (knee, hip, should, elbow) replacement as well as plates, screws, nails, etc for fractures.  I am on call nearly "all" the time, but still enough gaps to get in some golf/range time when the wifey and kids allow me too.

    Just intoducing myself..
    Name is Britt. Played golf a couple times a year for the past 10-12 years, never had a lesson, never learned the game, other sports always dominated my life...  then marriage and kids happened as well as the body breaking down due to injuries from years of sports... so after not even swinging a golf club for the past 4 years, I took the game up "seriously" this time last fall... Trying to learn it and dedicated to becoming a "good" golfer.. to mean at least getting to single digit handicap and being able to break 80 is my goal.

    I have an athletic swing but very inconsistent especially off the tee.  I have a bit of the "hooksy" and am currently stuggling with that quite a bit..  There is a plethora of info on the web and this site that I hope will help find those little tweaks that I need to improve.  Look forward to talking with you on topics as time goes.
