Anyone else think this could be an issue?
I can't say if it is an issue or not.. What I did notice is that you have a pretty good swing, but you don't really turn your hips much on the back swing. If you take a look you will see that your hips kind of turn in the beginning slightly and then that is about it.
This is most likely caused by the fact that your feet are both pointing straight ahead.. so this is really limiting your turning.. The first thing you will hear is that you should turn the feet out about 20* or so each way to allow the hips to be able to turn better.
Your head is pretty steady on the backswing, but you might have some weight forward issues (i.e. Key# 2) and that is why there is inconsistency because you are unable to control your low point in your swing, so your always hitting the ball in a different spot in your path.. i.e. sometimes you catch it going out a lot more than others and thus when you really catch it going out it just hooks.
Then again I'm not a professional or anything like that, so most likely the best advice you can get from me is join the guys on Evolvr and or visit one of the 5SK teachers personally and your HC will drop quickly!
Nice swing and good luck! Welcome to the site!
