post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Finally got around to recording my swing and my god its ugly... i obviously need to work on tempo (backswing way to fast) any other pointers? (be gentle) Sorry about the video quality but it was done on my mobile phone.

Also does anyone know how to rotate the videos?

Dude, my neck is killing me, but I'll try to help...lol.

1) You're rolling your hands on the takeaway and not keeping the left arm connected. Put a glove or headcover under your left armpit to stay connected.
2) Staying connected will also prevent the "chicken wing" on the follow thru and give you a better release (the irons video shows your left arm also disconnected in the follow thru) .
3) On the downswing, you're swinging "over-the-top" as the club shaft is just above your right shoulder. You want to get that below the right shoulder to avoid any fades, slices or the dreadful shank.
4) Take some lessons because I had similar issues years ago and it helped me tremendously!!

Good luck!

try to stay more outside on the takeaway. Your club immideately crosses your body which is not a good sign. Try to copy some pga pros takeaways by watching them on tv and looking at your swing in a mirror or something. Bad habbits are tough to get rid of. Good luck!

Re: Finally got a video of my swing

o my goodness you guys are the same...you, too, are flat-footed at impact. Just being in this position stresses your body's natural ability to keep your hands ahead of the ball. You will consistantly hit more fat and thin shots in this position than in any other. You are handicapping yourself and need instruction asap. Gary Player walk=thru drills will rid you of the problem...

be forewarned of these posters and their mathmatical sterotypical answers, (obviously quoted elsewhere). Unless it can be explained to you in layan's terms, do not listen...Seek Professional instruction.
