I would just make sure the right foot is turned out more than in the last video, like 10 degrees more.

 

And feel like the hips transfer a little forward during the backswing. "Zach Johnson" feel.

 

So if I was to hold a stick against your right hip at set-up, by the top of the backswing the hip will have move a few inches away from the stick. Will really help with the downswing stuff.

Great progress today @Big C!

 

A1 stuff, feet flared and having the hands more forward. Helps keep the start lines straighter and hit it more in the center of the face.

 

Feeling was to keep the hips turning and feel like the left hip moved slightly towards the target on the backswing. Also did that drill with the ball inside your right heel. Feeling was that the right hip kept turning and transferred over that ball on the backswing. Length of the arm swing is the same but you're turning your torso more. 

 

Awesome picture here!

 

 

A1 and A4 changes helped set up the changes in the next two pics. Because the hips were centered on the backswing it's easier to get the weight more forward and the right heel doesn't have to lift so early in order to try and swing out at the ball. 

 

More "thrust" in that right pic. 

 

Start lines were MUCH more consistent.

It is amazing how with one on one instruction you can really see such immediate improvement.

 

Nice Job @Big C

Thanks for your help, Mike. You gave me some great info in our time together. I'm looking forward to practicing the feels that we discussed and will continue to post updates of my swing during the course of the next few weeks.

A few more videos from my range session today. Both are down the line, since I didn't have anyone there to video my swing (had to prop the phone up against a bench). I see some improvement (right knee doesn't kick in as much), but my follow through still looks a bit awkward to me, particularly on the 4 iron full swing. I'll try to post a few face on videos later in the week.

Looking good, keep it up.

 

For recording, something like this might be good, not sure if you have an iPhone.

A few more videos from range session today. I feel like the "picture" that @mvmac alluded to is getting better but the process is really slow. I like the pic of my 4 iron face on a lot better than I like 6 Iron DTL. Both shots were well struck, but my pivot and weight shift was better on the first swing.

 

I also included two videos of my 3 wood, which has become a disaster of late. Once it was my most reliable club off the tee by far. Now, I stand over it with no idea where the ball is going. The two videos are a good indicator of that. The first shot was topped (never made it more than two feet off the ground) and the second was better, but it was "over drawn" and ended up probably 5-10 yards left of my intended line. Any thoughts or suggestions for the 3 wood?

Much better with the hips turning on the backswing. Couple things to be aware of.

 

- Head is moving a little too far forward (towards the target) on the backswing. So keep the hips turning but don't let the head translate too far forward.

 

- I think the head going forward partially contributes to this knee/heel piece because the head will want to go back but it is something you just do. You can "get away" with the heel coming off the ground so early with some irons but the 3 wood won't be as forgiving. It makes finding the sweetspot difficult because of how the wrists have to unload into the ball.

 

 

Here's how I would go about practicing it. From A4, transfer the weight forward as you bank the right foot, meaning the foot rolls onto the instep. To do this you are going to transfer and open the hips. Might almost feel like you are "torquing" the ankles counter clockwise. Do it slow.
