Re: Updated Swing Video

Nothing to say about the swing, but is that the dome at 14 and Van Dyke?

It looks like you pic your head and body up too early after impact.  You should drive through the ball and keep your head down and body down as well.  Sorry this is a little hard to explain.  Pause rory's swing at 19 seconds and you will see what I mean.

If you pause it there...to me it looks like you abruptly pick yourself up out of the shot.  Which would mean to me that you aren't driving through the ball but picking the ball up.  Just what it looks like to me.

I appreciate you comment and when i pause Rory's swing the big thing I notice is his hips are pointing towards his target and mine seem to be way more closed.  Thanks again I will have to work on this!!!

any other ideas on why the picture above is bad?  I'm think not enough weight shift/hip slide?

That is correct.  In your photo your right leg is/was pushing out towards the ball, notice your heel is up.  It needs to be pushing towards the target, or your left side.  Your not getting your weight on your left side causing you to flip at the ball.

If you look at your release point high & left you want to finish low & to the left, this will give you the feeling of compressing the ball.

Your hips didn't slide forward. Your right knee kicked in towards the golf ball, stalling the slide and spinning the hips instead.

My Swing (hoselrockets)

Working on a slower take a way and more hip slide.  I think I'm closer as I've see a change in ball flight.  Something with the slower take a way has helped the hips move more?  Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 25 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 8-9

My typical ball flight is: high fade

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: hoselrocket

More hip slide.  Ball position too far back, due to this.  You are just turning the hips and straightening the left leg too soon.  Feel as if you are keeping your left knee flexed longer on the down swing, more of a feel of driving through the ball, not just a turn.

Thanks for the input...I will give that a try...did you see any difference from the 1st video to the last?
