Ball striking consistency is terrible.

Eveything looks really good in most of your swing. You need to work on the flip at impact, you are throwing the club too much through imapct. Look at the blue lines in the image below.

 

 

 

 

Here is a drill to help you with that.

Hitting a lot of shots fat. That is my typical miss or weak right shot.

It looks like you are not regaining flexion in the downswing and your right knee buckles into the ball....  And your not able to go back into extension until too late.  Like you are faking the finish because your lower center is off.

 

You need to get your legs, hips, arms and hands in better sequence.  Try this drill which will help you get your sequence down.  And increase your quality of strike.

Are you sure?  Even in your still - which is after impact - the club is still not past the hands.  The line from club through hands to shoulder is perfectly straight, just like your pro model (is that Goosen?).

 

The difference I notice is how much higher the left shoulder is - which is something I struggle with as well.  I don't have any drills for it, per se, I just try to keep the left shoulder down longer.

I struggle with the same thing (right shoulder well below the left at impact).... But you need to swing more horizontally versus vertically with the upper torso and shoulders on the downswing.  The pitching video with Dana - you can see the pattern of how the shoulders turn through the ball. Right shoulder needs to fire faster.  Practice that pitching motion that Dana has in the video, and you will start to feel more of the horizontal rotation that is required in the swing pattern.

 

But as I stated... I believe he has issues with his lower center and thus why he looks like he is faking his finish.

I agree with Golfingdad. No flip. The grip is strong so the wrist looks bent, but it is not. Beachcomber is right about extension. A good drill is MVMAC's video drill to keep that right knee from coming in.

Here is a good video from Dana which talks about the finish.  Again - you can see to get into that finish - you need to turn the shoulders more horizontally through the impact zone.

He is hitting fat shots because his right knee is bending into the ball.
