Hi All

Looking at this AMG video below , was wondering whether it is just a setup issue at address that can prevent the pelvis moving prematurely towards the ball-target line ? So if if there is unweighting of the trail leg in the early downswing (while the 'Core' rotates the pelvis and spins the trail hip) , the improved AMG setup with centre line of hips directly over the ankle joints (or slightly forwards towards the mid-sole) will cure this issue? But is there an explanation why this is a cure?

I don't think they're saying that it's only the setup issue. You can see that even after correcting the setup, it took "John" a few swings to play around with the feeling a bit.

I think you're conflating two things here.

To the video specifically, if your balance is too far in the heels and/or you rotate around the right hip on the backswing, your lower center (hips) will move forward toward the ball.

I don’t think I would have guessed that but makes sense.  If I’m not paying attention I tend to get weight more in my heels at setup.

Many thanks.

This just opened my eyes. Thank you for pointing this part out of the video. I've been looking to find a position that is comfortable and I've been messing around!! Great share

Love these pro vs am videos.  I am a numbers person to help me go with feel. My only advice, only watch these videos if it’s your true problem, they may make swing worse if you have another cause and affect in your swing.

Wondering what the golfer has to do that will recreate those Pro movements (at the correct time in the whole kinematic sequence)?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with watching these videos for academic purposes. I don’t generally watch golf videos to fix faults in my own swing.

    • Day 274: worked on my priority pieces with a revised feel rehearsal. Results were an improvement. Trying to feel the left leg straighten and push the left hip back from A5 through impact. 
    • Yes - I saw those figures. I'd love to say it's unbelievable..........😘
    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
