Thanks @iacas I'll certainly do that. Got enough problems and don't want to create more!

I have to admit I do struggle with lining up that face square. My eyes find it hard to judge with the offset in irons. Guess I've just gotta give a go and practice it.

Hey Fine Folks of Sandtrap,

 

Apologies for the long delay but I have moved. Been back at the golf and practicing. Still suffering for some overdrawey and pulled shots but strike is definitely getting better. Regressed a bit and stuck in the low to mid 90s but the new course I am playing on is probably a good 400 - 500 yards longer than my previous one. Have uploaded the latest practice sesh as below, help, comments and criticism is always welcome!

Holla Sand Trappers,

 

We I've taken the next step and have started taken some lessons. My coach is teaching a conical release and more of a Mike Austin technique I think so I'm trying to move towards that and away from rolling the arms to square the club. It is still gelling and I haven't quite got the knack for it yet but I'm gonna stick at it. Some things with the swing I've noticed is that my ball flight is definitely higher which I like. I used to hit some very punchy shots all the time with some crazy divots. I can also get my hands higher which I previously thought was not possible for me physically. Here is me one the range the other day trying to get it 'in play'. Sorry for the crap portrait but I have to position my phone on a ledge. My previous cameraman quite as soon as I put a ring on her finger...go figure!

Good to hear you are taking lessons and seeing improvement, but I feel I should let you know that Mike Austin's swing has a lot of coordination and timing elements involved in it.

 

I have one question, though: what is a conical release?

My apologies @billchao it is a Dan Shauger technique, it might be a Mike Austin one as well I'm not sure of the details to be honest.

 

This is a pretty boring vid but for 3 mins it sums up the conical action. Instead of cocking straight up like hitting a hammer with your wrists you actually set them on the target line....I suppose almost like a flip?

No need to apologize, I was just curious. Thanks for sharing the video; I'll watch it later.

 

I just wanted to let you know what you might be getting yourself into if you're learning a Mike Austin type of swing. He was a very gifted athlete and his technique is reflective of that.
