I struggle with weight transfer to left side and early release. Any suggestion on how to work on this at range?

If you watch any of the pros in slow mo, youll see they start moving there weight forward before they end their backswing. Try doing that which should also let you hold your angle longer.

I will put that tip in my range session. Thanks.

What's up, Jeff!

 

Care if I offer my two cents?

 

First off, post a down-the-line view when you can! That'd help us! :-) It's hard to tell, but it looks as if the shoulders are turning too flat. I can't be sure without a DTL clip, but if that's the case, then I think your priorities change a little bit.

 

 

OK, here's what I see from this face-on view... We're going to work on keys no.1 and no.2: Steady head and weight forward. 

 

1) Narrow your stance width.

 

I'd prefer you to err on the side of too narrow rather than too wide, as your current stance width is inhibiting a number of things, while also exacerbating problems. With a narrow stance, you'll have a better probability of controlling low point, and it will be much easier to transfer forward in the downswing. 

 

2) Control your hip center.

 

Once you narrow your stance, it may also be beneficial to feel some pressure being applied into your lead foot on the backswing. This "feel" would be useful in regards to keeping your hip center stable. Because, remember, if the hip center slides back, it's just going to be that much harder to get forward on your downswing. 

 

3) Add PRESSURE into your front foot as the downswing commences and then slide the hips, tuck the butt, and thrust the pelvis through the strike. 

 

 

 

 

Hopefully you've already read about the importance of sliding one's hips on the downswing, but if not, click this link and study up a bit. But this move allows to weight to transfer forward while also keeping the head relatively steady through impact. 

 

And here's the video you should watch that is associated with the information I shared in the last photo (your finish position):

 

 

Again, a DTL view would help things, but I think this is a pretty good start here as far as having stuff to work on. Work on them in order if you can, and obviously, the driving range is the best place to practice this stuff! Slow down, shorten stuff up, and really try to implement the new pieces in a slower tempo swing where you can have a bit more control over what you are doing.

 

Good luck! :beer:

If you're going to say things like this, please at least try to back them up with something resembling reality.

 

From here (not my lines drawn, but you can see the shoulder tilt):

 

 

And that's not to say that a "steep" shoulder plane is at all required. There are several PGA Tour players with flatter shoulder planes. "Steep shoulder plane" is not something we necessarily prescribe, though it takes some more manipulation than we often like to have a flat shoulder plane with a relatively steady head.
