Sorry have not posted a new video - I use video all the time but the lighting sucks in my practice area. On the swings I have posted in the member swings section - I didn't get too many comments other than to fix the lighting :)
My hopes are dashed again - after practicing more of a loose armed - one plane swing - I eventually found it the same as before. If I do not try to close the clubface then I get left to right spin. If I do try to close the clubface I get unpredictable results - anything from pull-hooks to pull-slices.
I have a p3proswing that had been collecting dust so I got it back out trying to see if it would help me any. It shows that when my clubface is open, my swing path is in to out. When my clubface is closed, my swing path is out to in. Somehow trying to close the clubface makes me swing out to in. I can't get my mind to seperate the 2 actions and close the clubface without altering my swing path.
I have a new idea that I'm working on now - and that is focusing on making a dumbbell curl with my left arm after impact. Basically - at impact I stop my left arm from going out to the right - and make it go up instead - keeping my left elbow pretty close to my left hip. So far - based on hitting into a net and off the p3proswing - this seems very promising. I can only do 3/4 swings so far but I am finally getting some in-to-out swings with a closed clubface. (ie - In to out 2-5 degrees, clubface closed 2-5 degrees).
I saw a video - unfortunately I can't find it now - that talked about always keeping your left elbow pointed to the ground. This plus my teachers analogy of the "dumbell curl" helped me start working with this move. I'm going in for a lesson next week - I have been trying everything imaginable to get my clubface closed so enough is enough - time for a checkup and re-alignment.
