I am seeing a shift from a John Daly style a couple of years back to more to a DL III sort of feel. Very positive progression.
I think you're a little bit static at address, a bit of a waggle might free you up a bit.
I went to the range today, but my ankle is still hurting, and I forgot to wrap it so it was pretty much a waste of $6. I couldn't turn my hips at all, so I spent a good while with the flying wedge drill. Here's a video. It's actually a tiny bit better than last time. Getting a little less flipping, but I have to find a way to stop rotating my hands to much. I've got some ideas, but they'll have to wait a while.
I like the quick transition, I try to lead the downswing with my hips. I find it really helps getting everything in sequence, and make much better contact.
Thanks. I'd love to be more DLIII like. I do waggle a bit at address, I just cut it out of the video. Maybe next time I'll keep my whole set-up and stuff it a video.
i would say the strong point of your swing is your hips on the downswing. You have a move that is very very hard to teach someone and most of the people that have it, have it from the beginning or naturally. Ben Hogan had that same move. You dont need this move for a good golf swing but alot of guys try to do it
imho, you're not getting your hips turned enough. look at any tour at impact and their back hip is in line with the ball, yours is still way behind. i wouldn't worry about your hips moving forward so much as i would your hips turning. if you get a proper hip turn then your hips will automatically move forward because your subconscience isn't going to let you hit yourself in the leg.
Okay so here's the deal as I see it.
The PGA Tour players we've measured move their heads 1" or so on the backswing. Their weight at setup is roughly 55/45 - to the left or to the right - basically centered. At A4 their pressure is 65-70% right (their weight is roughly the same as their address weight distribution - most that have movement are towards centered).
So you have a steady head now. You have a flat left wrist (shaft not passing lead arm) at impact now. You have a reasonably good diagonal sweetspot path, and you lack a little clubface control, so that needs a little work too.
But really, this is a Key #2 deal: weight forward. It's going forward throughout the backswing and then increasingly so throughout the downswing. You won't have 65-70% of your pressure right (pressure, not weight) at A4.
Here are some pictures.
