Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 6 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 15 hcp 
My typical ball flight is: Meduim 
The shot I hate or the "miss"    push fade

I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Eliminate Back foot slide

 

Looking for any tips, drills or a thought process to get rid of this nasty foot slide.

Welcome to The Sand Trap. Thanks for posting. It’s a bit tough to see with your camera angles, but you may be reaching back a bit too far in the backswing. Check out the thread below.

Also check out the drills in Day 1 through 5 in this thread. It will help you feel the proper backswing and downswing sequence.

When you film down the line, have it line up on your toe line and at hand height.

To add to what @boogielicious said, it looks like the first half of your backswing is all arms. Meaning you have very little rotation of the shoulders when your shaft is about parallel with the ground. Definitely check out the COVID practice drills linked above

There is a tour pro with a back foot slide, can't recall his name.  What do you think it's causing you to do?

I immediately thought of Scottie Scheffler. Back foot definitely slides forward after impact

No hip turn from A1 (address) to A3 (arm parallel to ground in backswing). Be more passive with the arms and more active with a hip/torso turn.

Greg Norman had a foot slide! But their's slide forward. Mine slides out lol. I just feel like it's causing me to push my balls right and costing me a little power. I appreciate all the input and will get to working on all the new stuff! I will also get better camera angles! Thanks so much guys!
