You have got a real solid swing there man nice!

Couple of things though, your club face is shut at the top, is it seems you slice the ball your trying to combat that!

Secondly you take the club outside the line on the takeaway which is the start of coming over the top! Try feeling like your dragging the club around your body rather than straight up!

It looks wristy. You get your wrists going back on a hinge to start the swing. Not really roll so much as a hinge. The first thing I see is wrists hinging and becoming flipy maybe?

It's hard to tell in 2-d videos. But you watch pro golfers and their wrists don't really make a movement on the initial back swing. And the club looks closed at the top I think.

Much of it looks great. Good tempo and great lower body movement starting the down swing. If you're hitting it well roll with it. My opinion is the wrists get started in a hinge movement to start it all and I'm not sure that's ideal. But I'm not a pro or a swing coach or w/e.

Also you're wearing the same shorts but different shirts. That's kinda funny. :P

Nice and smooth, I like it and it has a lot of potential.


However, I see you hitting a lot of slices with that swing in its current form.

While you do have solid footwork, your lower body moves a little to laterally front AND back.

That might make consistency difficult.

Really nice. Great impact position with straight left arm, great extension, finish on a firm left side. Clubface a bit closed throughout the swing. Other than the closed clubface, can't find anything else to correct.

nice athletic golf swing, you only need a few corrections:

1) club position is off on your take away, at hip high on your backswing the club face should be facing perpendicular to the target line or the same direction you body is facing, this does not let you set your wrist in the correction position on your backswing

2) your hips are not turned fully on the backswing

3) your hips are pointing right of target and not facing the target, you must hit your balls right of target.

BTW, you have the swing of a player with a much better handicap than what is posted.
How's your short game. If your posted index is accurate, work only on your short game for two months (not much to correct on your full swing). Just take your 9i, PW, SW, and putter to the practice facility for two months.

PS, you only carry 12 clubs? with just a PW and a 54 degree?

What? He lives in Canada, so I assume he can only play for a few months a year. I doubt he wants to spend two of them working only on short game. Just work on putting drills at home, then practice chipping whenever you can. I would suggest reading some books on the proper techniques for them.

Ad for the actual swing, you could extend your arms out farther, which will add power. At least it did for me. But Good swing!

Cooker can play 18 holes with all the clubs as frequently as he wants; but, dedicating myself to the short game during practice sessions for two months really dropped my handicap quickly.

Thanks everyone for the feedback

Yes my misses are slices, mostly only with longer irons.

Bang on, my short game is terrible and have been working very hard at it this summer. As for only working on short game, I have been doing kind of a 20% swing practice and 80% chipping/putting

What? He lives in Canada, so I assume he can only play for a few months a year. I doubt he wants to spend two of them working only on short game.

I'm in Vancouver though, golf year round here, if you dont mind the rain...

Where are you playing Cooker? That scenery is just stunningly beautiful.

Great lag. Looks like you hit the ball far. Yes, clubface is a bit closed at top.

One thing I noticed on setup is that, although you seem very athletic, your knees don't seem to be bent very much. This may be why your swing path is a little off.

    • If you’ve never used hybrids before, it might be good to try one to see if they work for you.  Some find that hybrids have a tendency to hook the ball too often. If so, it might be better to stick with a 5 wood and/or long irons.
    • The clubs of course aren’t going to fix a fundamentally flawed swing.  I can shank any club when I make a swing mistake.  However, some “game improvement” irons can help minimize the effects of a mildly inconsistent swing though.
    • Yup. In my case, it was the 6 iron that didn't go anywhere, lol. To make matters worse, I used to have the 6 and 9 iron right next to each other... Not anymore! 
    • Wow, you guys' analysis is really cool to me.  Thank you!  It feels odd to hear someone say my hands are too high, because I used to have a very flat swing with low hands.  I might be able to post an older video if I can find one with decent quality.   I can absolutely get a new video with both views and better lighting sometime soon.   Also, I have been playing since I was 3 (my dad and older brother have always golfed).  You hit my real age spot on!  
    • I totally agree! I love my range and spend a lot of time there. That is why I signed up again with Evolvr.... to make the most of that time, and not just hit ball after ball without any focus.
