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

Sorry for asking the wrong question. Been learning stack & tilt the past month, can't think of one reason to lift the front foot - apart from winning two majors doing so :D
I assume that you are swinging it conventional - disregard my question. Adding a face-on video would get you better tipps re swaying etc.

All the best!

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

I meant that it looked like he was on the balls and toes, instead of solidly balanced on the balls and heels.

Ok guys,

I went to the range to work on my right leg.

How does it look now?

I was hitting it further than ever. Maybe an extra 15-20 yards. And make far more consistent contact.



Thanks!

Hey, seems I asked the right question though. OK, you won't win 5 majors now...

Nice work, nice swing!

OK, next wrong question: Why is your right arm so far away from your torso? If it were nearer, could you stay on the shaft plane between P5 and P6 (downswing, arms parallel to the ground and on)?

Please post a face-on video next time!

Far away form my torso at what point? I think this is me trying to keep my takeaway stright out rather than on the inside ( which it's still doing anyway :) )

You'll see it at P3 and P4 (lifting your arms is a no-go with S&T;), but thats not what I meant. You would see P5 and P6 at the face-on view.

I just managed to freeze the video at impact. Nice. Think you are getting good enough for a hi-speed cam now :D

Tempo...tempo

This has always been an issue with me...my backswing is too quick....everyone I golf with says I need to slow it down but when I try, it throws everything off and I chunk it or something.

I was the same way.. Played golf with a good buddy who is a low hadicap .. he told me this at the range.. so now I have been working on it.. so far my swing feels better, Im making better contact, hitting the ball more consistent. and about the same distance.. But who wouldn't want accuracy over distance right?

lengthen the back leg in the back swing. you're squatting down in the backswing, you can't get any leverage and help from gravity if you're already in that position. plus, keeping a good tempo will be loads easier.

This is a hard thing for me to do for some reason. I try, but it still bends ( usually more than in the video )

What drills can I try to help me out with this?

watch this vid of erik, cause if you get your shoulder plane right, then the leg will follow suit automatically.

Wow, thanks. In my DTL video I see my shoulders change degrees so much:

Would this explain some pull hooks i experience? And the fact I have to stand so far from the ball to make good contact?

Problems I am having is low flight with the Driver and hooking it every now and then, tonight was a lot better though.

    • My wife told me to grow the f*** up. Lol. I think a $5 per person net skins pot always a great idea. Just right IMO.
    • So yesterday I tried it. I played from 6280 yds. I haven't done this before. I usually play 5400 - 5700. So why? Because at the driving range some guy had a GC2 and got my driver carry at 214 yds. which with rollout should be around 230. But that's when I get into a groove. Usually I'll have to say it's around 200 carry because of mishitting the ball. But I had to try it. The course is rated 76.5/129. The front 9 was a dumpster fire. I'd locked myself out of my house and long story short, as a result I didn't get to the course but 2 minutes before my tee time. No warm up. No putting. Straight to the first hole and straight to the first duff. It took me 6 holes to warm up - I'm 68. I need to hit about 20 balls to loosen my back. Front 9 ended with a double bogey and a 58. Stopped for a hot dog and two Tylenol.  Back 9. I was determined to play better. I'd been going for pars on the front 9. I decided to play for bogeys. Stress-free back 9. I shot 45. One GIR. 18 putts. 4/6 Fwys. I left myself shots I liked - 40 to 70 yd. pitches with my 54 wedge. But this is playing for bogeys and not for pars. Some of the par 4s, I just couldn't reach in regulation. Well, I'd have to take the chance of a 7W landing and holding or not landing in a bunker so I just chose to lay up and hit a pitch that I knew I could get to about 9 feet from the hole. My 54 is my bread and butter. 9 straight bogeys.  So 103, but I don't even want to think about the front 9. Just the 45 on the back 9. I don't know if I'm going to do this again. I don't see breaking 90 from that length being possible. Highlights of the round  4th hole: Chipped in to save par. Always read the green when you chip.  12th hole: Lousy lie with the ball way above my feet on the fairway, choked down on a 7i and put it dead center of the fairway on the approach just short of the green. The shot was exactly as planned. The hole has "hell" to the left, two big bunkers in the front, and "more hell" if you go long.  16th hole: Holed out a 35 foot putt to save bogey. 
    • Yeah, but his eye wasn’t getting any better. Six over for the day and shooting two under the last eight holes. If he thought he had a shot and the eye wasn’t bad enough, he would probably have tried. I don’t think people can do the Tiger blaming on the WD.
    • At the point he WD he could not know he would miss the cut. Unfortunate but 6 over with plenty of holes left he could have made the cut. 
    • Thanks! That statement must have have been written by a PA or management company. What 20 something talks like that?     I suppose he was certain of missing the cut, so fair enough.
