post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2-3 months

Videos:
This is the only video I had. It was before my first round. I know it's not down the line or face on but can you see anything wrong?

Hi, welcome to the site.  part of the reason your path is across the ball is because your pivot isn't very dynamic on the backswing. Body is kind of static resulting in very little rotation. I would recommend feeling the left knee continues to gain flex as you "stretch" your right side throughout the entire backswing. Would really help you increase the amount you turn and keep the shoulders and hips titled.  

 

More on that in these two videos.

Thanks for the suggestions! But do you think that it not being my full swing might have something to do with it?

That was kind of a full swing at a half speed pace because of where I was aiming. That was a 70 yard club aiming at a 40 yard target 60 ft downhill.

I'll try to get a full swing of my driver, 6 iron, and that club up this weekend.

If it wasn't a full swing then why post it? ;-)

 

Yeah go ahead and post a full swing, I have a feeling you're still going to need to do more bending and stretching.
