    Do people meticulously keep their stats?
    I would be interested in comparing Fairway %, GIR, and putts with other bogey golfers for curiosity sake...My stats are averaged from my last 20 rounds.

    Handicap: 16
    Fairway %: 32
    GIR: 17
    Putts: 1.75

    Posting here with an update;
    1) I feel like my posture has improved, although after seeing this video I feel like I still possibly am not standing upright enough?
    2)  I've been focusing a lot on rhythm and slowing things down. I've noticed I strike the ball much cleaner when I do this combined with a shorter backswing.
    3)  I think my head moves a lot less, however still moves a tad.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback

    is that green swing path product still available that used in an early demonstration video? I can't find it on their website.

    Thanks for your feedback.  Is it odd, that when I add the posterior pelvic tilt during my stance as recommended by the large golf posture thread, that I seem to get some lower back pain? Perhaps it's just the adjustments necessary.  Where should I start first? The posture adjustment, and then where?

    My Swing (Oakleys20)

    I've been Playing Golf for: inconsistently and socially for 5 years, seriously the past 6 months.
    My current handicap index or average score is:  usually score around 90-95
    My typical ball flight is: Fade. Although am very susceptible to a major slice as well as hosel rockets.
    The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: the hosel rocket with the irons! terrible shanks.

    I've included some additional information:

    Filming the swing was one of the best things I’ve done.  I wasn’t aware of how my posture appeared, so I think that should be one of the first things I fix.  It also appears to me that I whip the club far inside on the backswing, and then on the follow through I appear unbalanced.  Recently, I have been focusing a lot of attention on supinating the left wrist through the impact zone.
    I've been watching a lot of Shawn Clements Videos on youtube lately and I will try to introduce some of his content to my golf swing and see how it goes.
    Any help would greatly be appreciated!
