Another observation I think I can see with my swing is that I might not have the proper pivot. no hip slide to left but cheek. been reading about hogan and right butt left butt hitting the wall. well when i do it my left butt cheek comes of the wall. hence not keeping pivot tight, drifting in. But how will will i ever correct this flaw? what drill is out there for this? It seems serious. or should I be worried?
That I bet will "Well, that's a whole nother can of worms" im sure.
Yes agree with the butt on the wall stuff. I'm trying to help the stuff that comes before that, the reasons you need to come off the wall. Understand you can have a perfect back swing and still come off the wall, but the better the backswing gets, the "off the wall" will lessen imo. Also imo the butt off the wall isn't a make or break for playing good golf, can easily shoot in the 70's, hit a bunch of greens and have that fault. If you work too much on it without understanding HOW Hogan kept the butt on the wall, the hips won't come out of flexion into the followthrough and you'll hit a lot of low cuts. Best way to work on it is the make slow practice swings, SLOW, with your forehead against a wall at home.
There's one more piece for you for the back swing, keeping the elbows closer together and not letting them pull apart. This is a great drill to exaggerate the feel. But for the next while, just focus on the upper left arm/tee in the arm pit.
