Would like to help out, but good camera views and slow-motion swings are a must at your level, basically.

When the face flash-rolls it's going to be tough to control the start line.

The hips basically stall out, the torso slows down, and the hands roll over quite a bit here.

I'd like to see a few things:

  • The hips to continue turning and cranking through.
  • This would let the arms get carried through more with the chest.
  • Video of you doing a "hit and stop" drill where the hips and chest have rotated through 90° by A8/A9 or so and the forearms have not rolled over each other.
  • An avatar for you.
  • Posts in other topics. 🙂

P.S. Look, in the DL view, how little the hips have moved from impact to after A9.

Quotes are a tag, fyi

A tag could be a mention in a reply such as @iacas stated "The hips basically stall out, the torso slows down, and the hands roll over quite a bit here" which can be done with Quotes boxes

Good luck with your golf journey, your off to a very good start.

@iacas

Thank you for your advice. There are some items which I need clarification on:

1. I am not sure what you mean by "flash roll" 

2. I do not know what the "hit & stop" drill is nor what "A8/A9" is.

3. Uploaded some pics 🙂

I will be making that video for you once I receive clarification.

Thanks again!

You roll the clubface closed at a very high rate through impact.

Make swings where you stop short of a full finish with your body rotated through and your hands rotated less.

    • 4.5 hours being considered fine is just an American view of the game  I think most Americans would find themselves unwelcome if they didnt adjust to the pace in their weekly rounds elsewhere in the world.
    • Played yesterday and today.  Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired.  Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF   Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better.  2 holes ended up doing me in, though.  After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right  and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left.  Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8.  On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB.  Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right.  Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green.  I then 3 putt for a 10.  That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping.  That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME!  Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me. 
    • thank you...already loaded up on TM clubs :/...that being said, I've been working on my tee shot and was wondering how much range time is too much?  have had my M2 driver for about 5 days...have hit about 250ish balls with it already...too much?
    • Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!   
    • A towel is an unneeded accessory? Once again, I'm not sure you read things before you reply.
