Improving impact position / eliminating pushes
I've posted a few times on here before, and now I've finally gotten around to posting my swing in the Member swing section. I have been recording my swing every time I've been to the range over the last several weeks, and it is really helping to see what I'm doing right or wrong. For anyone who would be so kind to take a look at my swing, here are some of my observations.
- Just about everything I'm hitting currently is starting right and traveling fairly short. I have determined this must be due to a steep swing plane and hitting behind the ball. I used to have a very shallow, inside backswing, but I still do this thing at the top of my swing that seems to reroute the club which results in an over-the-top move.
- It appears that I am transferring my weight, but I think my less-than-ideal impact position and steep downswing are resulting in my club bottoming out too soon. I have been working on keeping my right knee flexed in the backswing and squating through the beginning of the downswing, but after watching swings of various tour pros, it seems that I really need to "stand up" with my left leg through impact. Does this sound like an accurate assessment?
I have been working online with the Rotary Swing system for those who are familiar, and I am uploading my swing there every 2 weeks, but I was just trying to get some other input in the meantime. I am really hoping to build some consistency, and even though there are some things I can tell I need to improve on, it doesn't seem to me that I am that far off.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
