Aside from personal one-on-one professional lesson(s); what is the best way to go about correcting a fault noticed when reviewing your swing video? Once identifying a particular fault, do you merely practice in overcoming it and then do another video for confirmation? How long should you practice before doing a subsequent video?
I know, many would say "seek professional lessons", but that is not the question. I also realize it is rather subjective.
Specifically, last video showed a DTL view as swing plane change and coming over the top on outside in arc. I also know it is not something that occurs regularly as most shots are straight. None-the-less I was surprised (enlightened?) to see it.
My personal belief is that many people practice "too much" in lieu of taking it to the course. I have seen some practice doing multiple videos, seemingly with noted and evident improvement with swings looking very good, yet the scores achieved during actual play had not changed all that much after even a couple of years. Of course, some are under the direction of professionals or are engaged in a program such as evolver e.t.c. requiring the video sessions, but, at some time, you have to actually "play" and the only thing that matters as an indicator of improvement is the score card. Obviously, I have no way of knowing that is what happened, but only from what I have read in their own posts and I commend them on their dedication to self improvement.
I do not wish to become bogged down with doing videos (although it is fun) but should probably check from time to time to see what is going on. At this stage, I should not expect to get too much better anyway, but at least I should be able to achieve some consistency and play to the limits of my physical capability. Admittedly, I am also guilty of not playing often as well. I have other priorities, and limited finances so I can only get out maybe 2 or 3 times a month at best. The little outdoor practice area I built has helped considerably however, especially in short game.
Oh well, I have gone on enough. (I have a tendency to do that, I know)....
