hmm..I was waiting for something "crazy" to happen..like one of those funniest golf video shows..but anyways..maybe it's the angle but it seems like your coming back way too much on the inside. Also it looks like your hands are too close to your body. Your lower body has too much movement and appears that your legs have to get out of the way on your backswing..possible because your hands are too close..and I think your swinging the club too fast..you are swinging for the fences (i.e. homerun)

Then you should go outside, find a golf range, buy a bucket of balls, set up your camera, then hit some balls.

While you are at it, get both face on view and down the line view.

That's a nice swing.

It looks like your takeaway is just a little low and inside though.

Do you get across the line at the top? It's hard to tell.

Swing is a bit low on the takeaway and in your top video, your hands seem way too cramped up to your groin ( was that because you were cramped in your room? ) Really, not that bad a swing though

I've been Playing Golf for: about 5 years, 3 years seriously

My current handicap index or average score is: 7

My typical ball flight is: a draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: coming out of it, leaving it out right


ignore my brother thinking he's commentator ha

On a side note, for down the line shots, keep the camera angle about waist high and pointing down the toe line.

Check out this thread. Your back is too arched, and your head is too upright.

I would work on getting the clubhead less inside. Less forearm rotation in the backswing. Check out this drill bellow.

is there any way of deleting all the posts above from years ago?

Why would you want to do that?

    • I'm a member at the club where Xander grew up playing, obviously everyone is super excited to see him get this win and launch himself into "elite" status on tour. He won 1.58M and an extra 2M for finishing 3rd in Fed Ex Cup. This time last year he was playing in the Web.com finals.
    • Gotcha. Thanks. That's a possibility too. I don't feel like I am hanging back but as you know feel ain't real.  Most likely my problem is a combination of things (maybe ball too far back combined with hanging back?). This started happening out of the blue and has been going on for about 2 weeks (5-6 rounds), and even with range work i have not been able to shake it off... yet! Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll try to double check them one at a time until I can tell for sure whether my not implementing them is the culprit. It shouldn't be too hard to recover from this, but it sure is annoying...
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/JonMa1/round/1859679?hole_id=34840967 Short and mid iron approaches were pretty good. Pitches, chips were fine. I just had a rough time controlling the driver until the 13th today. Also had issues topping some 5i and 4i shots though I did hit a couple nice 4i shots. Putting was pretty poor today. I'm getting acceptable distance from my driver since having the shaft shortened and contact seems better. Unfortunately, controlling the club face continues to be a challenge. Excessive penalties have been the theme for 2017. Lowering my handicap from longer courses will be next to impossible if I don't improve this part of my game.
    • I'm surprised he didn't at least ponder if there was a rule on that. I didn't know but had it happened to me I definitely would've asked my partner or someone there, 'hey is there a rule about this?' Certainly shows how it pays to know the rules. 
    • At 63 I have all the same challenges others have noted. In addition, poorer eyesight has been a new challenge. I never had to play with glasses from age 10 to late 40's and then quit golf. Now at 63 and back playing golf, just seeing the ball clearly at address has been a significant issue for me. And of course corrective lenses that work at address aren't right for reading or distance vision. Anyone else? I'm afraid between poorer vision and all the senior physical challenges, my days of consistently finding the sweet spot on my clubs are probably over. Game improvement clubs here I (reluctantly) come...
