Yeah for now I'm just going to advise you stick with what Brian is telling you. He knows his stuff and I'm sure he's got a game plan in mind.

Fair enough.  I was just curious and I didn't want to wait for an answer until the next time I submit a video to Brian.  He very clearly knows what he's doing, it's just that I'm impatient :-).  I'll just turn the face more open at setup and see where that takes me.

 

Oh, and thanks for taking the time to respond.

You added loft dynamically during the swing. The bold below:

I think because your grip is slightly off, you have made an adjustment with the clubface to improve your results. However, in doing so, you have taken a lot of the loft off of the club and you have to make adjustments mid swing to try to add loft.

 

I was thinking about this last night, trying to figure out what sort of adjustments I'm making.  The two things that seem likely to me are not allowing a full release (holding the face open through impact) and swinging much too in-to-out.  If I didn't do these two things, the ball would hook hard every swing.  Doing these things allows me to hit it decently straight with a very closed face.  By opening the face at address like Brian wants I would be able to fix both of these compensations.  Am I thinking about this correctly?

I gotcha. Brian is more familiar with your swing and like I said, he's got a game plan for where he wants to go.

Remember ball starts where the face is aimed and curves away from the path. So if you're swinging out, you want to the face to be pointed somewhat right of the target. Makes sense to just point it there at address.

So I haven't updated this thread in a while.  I've been working for a while now on getting a better body rotation on the downswing and keeping my right heel down until impact.  It's not where I want either to be but I think it's getting better.  Watching the video really makes me want to start working on shortening the backswing.  Any comments are welcomed!
