Hi guys,

here is my driver and 7 iron. Sorry I couldn't get a front on view, but hopefully you can help me with these videos. Taken with iPhone so quality is kinda average too.

Cheers!

The takaway is fine, its the down swing. In this first pic on the down swing the club head is way to far outside. Look at tigers this is where it should be. "This is when the club is parallel t

Here's some general advice that applies to a lot of things for people who know how their swing should look (you can clearly see the look of swinging well to the left in your video): exaggerate the

Swinging to the right is something I constantly need to work on. I've tried a lot of feels to flatten out my shaft and get the club head inside at A6 and the "swing hard to the right" is the only one

You are losing your spine angle as you approach the top of your backswing. It is most noticeable in your driver video. Your hips tuck under your torso and you become more upright. This relaxes any coil you start to build up (it's a power leak). Another way to look at it, your knees are bending in your backswing. If anything your right knee should straighten a bit. You are not exactly coming over the top which is good, but I prefer to see the arms drop a little before turning your shoulders because a little missed timing and you are going to be OTT. On a positive note, I like your set-up!

Awesome, thanks. Is my left knee moving too much also? I was bending it more about 2 months ago, and have tried to quieten it down and it has helped, but should I work on that more too?

Again, thanks!

My bad shot is a push to the left BTW

I think I see the cause for the change in spine angle and knee bending. Your takeaway has the clubhead moving inside the target line very quickly. When you get to the top of the swing the common reaction to this move is to steepen the downswing plane. Therefore, try bringing the clubhead straight back along the target line during your takeaway (for the first foot back) and see if this helps. In the backswing your lower body usually reacts to what your upper body is doing so this may fix your leg action. Your swing tempo may be a little quick but I personally don't believe it to be bad (Hogan was on the quicker side). Hope this helps you.

As a high handicap, it seems weird replying but that's never stopped me before. :) It seems like you're leaning a good deal toward the ball with the majority of your weight on your toes and the balls of your feet.

Thanks. The problem I get when I try and keep my take away straighter is that I feel I bring my club up too straight and end up coming over the top. But, good information for me to take to the range tonight and maybe post a new video here tomorrow.

Keep the suggestions coming!

Your meant to have the weight on the balls of your feet.....

I like Waggle, good drink, but i prefer captain morgan. ;b

Nah, somtimes i like to bounce my legs to make sure i have some knee flex and check my balance. I like to hinge my wrist a few times to get the tension out of my arms.

Your takeaway is too inside and you start your downswing with your arms.

Try rotating your hips to start the downwing and pull the club down hands... let your arms catch up and really shift your weight through the swing as you rotate your hips.

Dion't go lifting your front foot arguement, there have been many great ball strikers who lifted there front foot. Harrington won two majors doing it. It doesn't matter, not that big of a deal..

Right leg straighter, just don't get it locked up, let it naturally move with the shoudler rotation, don't worry about it.
Your takeaway can be analyzed with video or a mirror, a good key is that your club should bicect the space between your arms at the top of the swing, when they start comming down.
A good drill is to practice swings with your butt againts a wall, you start with both cheaks on the wall, go to the right only on the wall in the backswing, back to both, then to left only. So this will help you get that left hip rotating out of the way instead of swaying.

    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
