Seems to me that the shoulders and hips stall and then he is forced to close the face with his hands and he will hit pull hooks. To me, it looks really similar to my issues. He gets all bunched up, goat humps, and then flips to hit it. Rt shoulder is WAY to far back at A7-A8.
I for one will be interested to hear what Dana says. You and I swing really really similarly. A side by side would be pretty spooky.
There are a few things I notice...
1.) My head moves into the ball on the back swing - when I focus on getting extension in the backswing - getting the left shoulder vertically under my chin - I seem to lean into the ball. Pretty minor - but not exactly a steady head.
2.) As I go from A5 to A7 - my left hip is sliding and turning which pulls my right hip, leg and pelvis toward the golf ball. This is the critical breakdown in my swing from my perspective... It causes the face to shut and sometimes hit the pull or hook or over draw.
When my timing is good - I can hit the ball very well. When my timing is off - or I'm under pressure in a tournament... My swing gets quick and that left hip slide/turn gets too much. As Grant told me this past spring... I need to calm that down a little bit. So I'm hoping Dana can help me focus on that and show me how to get the rates of the slide/turn synched up for better ball striking. This should also help me keep the sweet spot on path longer through the impact area.
Basically I just need to hit shots from A5 to A8 over and over and over again with the eyes and ears of a quality instructor so that I can nail this piece.
