My Swing (MFillyaw) - Page 3

post #37 of 42
Thread Starter 

Been to the range a few more times to try and work on my weight shift and eliminating lateral backward movement in the hips during my backswing. 

 

I'm too ashamed to post the vids. The top of my swing is a mess. I'm across the line by miles. Right elbow flaring out. See below:

Where as last year I was in a nice compact, laid off position at the top:

 

I need to get back to this!

The location of the camera will exaggerate the look of those things.

 

For example, in the top picture, with the camera on the ground (nearly) and outside the golf ball, you'll see:

  • More space between your right elbow and rib cage
  • Your shaft will appear to be closer to or well past horizontal when it might still be short
  • The shaft will also appear to be more across the line.

 

Film your golf swing from a consistent place and height: http://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing .

Couple shots. Analyze, praise, critique. Let me hear it.

Looks like there's a bit too much knee flex and the weight is in your heels.

Sorry should have provided some context and details of what I've been working on. I made a major switch in how close I stand to the ball this offseason (if you watch the 2014 and 2013 swings on the first page you can see the big difference), this resulted in a much more upright steeper swing path. It worked for a few range sessions, but then I started hitting hosel rockets 1 out of every 5 or so swings. So on the iron swing above I backed away from the ball a bit and worked on a shallower swing plane. Still not in love with where the shaft is pointing at the top, but I like where my hands are. 

 

The driver swing has never changed much, just thought I'd post it as well.

My recommendation is still the same ;-) With the weight back on the heels the tendency can be to move the hands closer to you. So getting the weight even will help the arms hang slightly away from you.
