My Swing (LongballGer) - Page 3

post #37 of 49
Thread Starter 

So I´m currently working on S&T, but I´m hitting everyhing fat. I think my backswing is alright, but on the downswing I still have early extension (something I´ve always had) and I think my arms are disconnecting from my body after impact so that the club gets away from me instead of moving around on a circular arc. Any help?

Sorry I can't go on longer here (busy with Analyzr, wheee!), but you've got almost no forward dimension. You need a fair amount more. Your hips barely push forward on their circle at all. You just stand up.

Ok, a little update on my S&T swing. Hitting it alot better. My miss is a push though. I wanna know what I should work on to improve. I also have a question. When the backswing is short of parallel should the club be pointing at the target or left of it like Haney or Hardy want to see it?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

I´m hitting a 4 iron in these clips:

Left of it is fine, yes. Short of parallel the plane would look like that. But it's a really fine-grained piece, and there are some students who manipulate their wrist conditions in such a way that they make better downswings pointing the club across the line despite being short of parallel, for example.

 

What to work on?

 

Handle forward at address. Ball back a little (it's fairly far forward).

 

Hips pushed a little more forward and not spinning so fast. Push the hips forward with no turn (it'll feel that way to you - push them forward to first base) and let your head stay back.

 

Then extend the arms and keep the handle raising through impact without rolling the hands over (this can send the path slightly left).

You tell me! Look at it! What were the balls doing?

Yes. It's better.

Well, occasional pushes and hooks with the driver. Contact was very solid though with the irons. Anything else you see wrong?

You have a pretty balanced swing. But on your back swing, you look as if you want to crush the ball as far as you possibly can. Try and have your driver head above your hands on the back swing. I had the same back swing and a guy I was paired up with recommended this little tip. I would have to work at it, but know I am hitting straighter than i ever have, and a little farther. It worked for me hopefully for you too.

You look different. I'm confused. Sorry if there's some sort of logical explanation for this. I'm not trying to call you out, I just remember your old swing threads, which is why I can't figure this out.
