Great video.  Thanks Mike.

I really like this video. I think it fits in with what I am trying to work on now, getting my hands less deep on the backswing (due to right arm retracting behind the body). Getting the hands more infront and away from the body will help. If it helps shorten the swing, BIG PLUS!!

I got the Swing Extender today and went to the driving range.  I gotta say horrible name for absolutely the smartest thing that's been created.

 

I wore it with every club and was still able to make good swings.  I took it off then tried to feel that stop in my right arm.  I really think it was working!  It will definitely ingrain that shorter backswing feeling!

It's clear watching your video that you are not keeping the weight on your front foot which allows the rest of your body to turn too much which is a common reason why people overswing. Keep all of your weight on your front foot to get the feel of it and your swing will shorten dramatically.

After a while you can change the ratio of weight between front and back to how long you want your swing to be.

Drives me nuts.

I'm having the same issue. I have no problem shortening my swing with my irons. But my driver swing, it's out of control. It goes so far past parallel, it looks like John Daly. I have no clue how I even manage to return the club head to the ball. I'd really like to stop doing this. But, I practice a shorter backswing and it's very difficult to find a good tempo with this short swing.

@iacas I see you reviewed the SwingExtender years ago. Could this device really help me shorten up my driver swing in your opinion?

Yes, I think so. You could fashion your own, of course, but for the $20 or whatever it's easier to just get something that's made for the purpose, IMO.
