It's actually gotten worse lately, I had it going much better earlier last year. It's simply a result of many things I think.
- My right foot kicking in, causing the hips to open too quickly and get forward too fast. Everything moving towards the target.
- Trying desperately to get the hands in front of the ball.
- Old habits. It's a move very similar to my very first recorded swing.
- Not thinking about it.
I've got the feeling down and I'm confident I'll be able to get it back into my swing. Here is a quick picture of a practice swing which shows how the head has stayed perfectly still. First time I recorded a swing when focusing on the head. My feelings are to keep the head still, legs more quiet and swing the arms faster. A big part in getting the hands in a better position at impact lies in not kicking the right knee in, but keeping the heel on the ground longer and let it roll in through the shot.
I honestly haven't paid attention to the upper body movement in a long time, so I haven't struggled with fixing it really. Of course, I haven't recorded anything since last year either, so I've been unaware, plus I've been really focused on getting the hands ahead of the ball. I know that I can keep my head still and I hope that I've found some good feelings for getting the hands forward without having to move the upper body forward. Now I have to practice and get it into my muscle memory.
If I can speed up the arms a bit more and get a little bit more shoulder tilt and secondary axis tilt, I'm right where I want to be. This is the closest I've ever been. I could probably push the left knee more forward, but as long as my hips get forward, I think it's good.
If someone went through my PC, they would be thinking I'm obsessed with Charlie.
