I think I saw that video earlier. I'm not sure though, I'm at work again and can't watch them right now. I'll watch it again after my range session, or possibly during it. However, I don't think that's my problem, my weight and left wrist are two things I've paid close attention to in my swing. I think it's a mental thing. For years I've been trying to strike the ball just right at the back of the ball, ground and ball at the same time or ground just a fraction before the ball. I thought that's where you should hit it. Now that I realize that's not how it's done, I'm having a hell of a time striking the ball on the downswing. I became very good at doing it the way I though it should be done. Now I have to break that, and allow my brain to realize the club should be striking the ground in front of the ball, not at the base of the back of the ball.
I've had a steep downswing due to striking the ball where I though it should be. So I'm sure I will have to flatten my swing out a little. Later today I'm going to mess with the first video and adjust my stance around the ball, to see how that feels. Like I said, I'm not excited about hitting a PW and low irons that far forward, but it's worth trying. I like the logic of it, it gives you an easy way to insure you are always lined up at address. What are you're thoughts on the first video posted in the tread mvmac? I'm also going to get some painters tape down and mess with that a little. I really don't want to get a ton of new stuff in my head and totally screw myself up. I know why my handicap is high, it's due to my short game. So it's not like I don't have control with the way I've been striking the ball. I'm hoping striking the ball the way it should be done will add enough distance so I'm going to the green with a short iron rather than a long iron. That's going to shave some strokes off as well. Then this spring I'll start working on the short game. The goal is to shave 5 strokes off my index this year, which I think it very attainable.
