  1. My Swing (48bsalkin)

    Hi guys, I've been working on the "trail elbow problem" for a week or so now. I believe I get the motion right in my practice swing? However, every time I hit a ball it's generally the same swing that it was before even if I feel that I'm doing exactly the same. Probably just a mental issue? I uploaded a video below where you can see both my practice and my actual swing. What do you think about the swings? Is there improvement regarding the trail elbow? Other comments on swings are also welcome :)

    Thanks Mvmac and FooFader for the warm welcome. Exactly the kind of advice I was looking for. Makes so much sense, didn't even realize how stuck my elbow must have been back there! Can't wait to get to the range and try it out tomorrow :)
  3. My Swing (48bsalkin)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.8 My typical ball flight is: Straight/Slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hi guys, I'd greatly appreciate any advice or thoughts you have on my swing. I'm currently hitting the ball pretty good and the swing feels ok. However, I don't like the fact that back swing is quite flat. What do you guys think, should I stick to the "natural feel flat swing plane" or try to adjust it to a more steeper one? On another forum, the general feedback seems to be that a flat swing cannot produce consistent results in the long run, at least not at the same level as its steeper counterpart. In addition, given the feedback, I believe that the biggest flaw is in the take away, what do you think? Videos:
