I know you're trying to prove someone wrong about your genetic pre-disposition to EE :D Mike but I still wouldn't mind seeing a bit less "ass out" and a little more "hip forward" slightly from 4 to 6. Just three inches.

Swing on the left was after a few weeks of playing a lot so earlier this week had to clean up some laziness with my pivot. Green line was drawn just outside my right hip at 1. Can see the trail hip wa

If you follow the swing thread you know I'm always working on getting less shallow/more steep on the downswing but only made minimal gains mechanically. To see if I can really change it I've been want

lol yes for others reading the thread, that butt out look is more of a reaction to me feeling the handle get low to the ground.  Why?  When the handle stays too high and the left arm is too far out, I have to release my wrist angles too soon on the downswing.  Only way to get the clubhead to the ball.  Erik just wants to make sure I don't lose sight of the getting the lower center forward.

I think he also doesn't want his analysis to be drawn more to your ass than necessary

Isn't a little EE acceptable? I know that generally it is not good, but I see that many guys have "a little".

Yes. Mike doesn't have too much now. But he still works on it. ;)

Yes, imo most good players have some EE, rare to find a good player that has none.

For my own swing, I don't really care whether I EE or not.  I put more emphasis on how the pressure points in the feet are working and what the arms are doing. My belt line gets too level A5-6 leading to the hands being high.  Need inclination so that the left arm plane is more vertical and the handle can raise without having to dump the wrist angle.

This is where the hip slants get really important and how it relates to the wrist angles and ultimately face issues and SD.

If the hips flatten too fast and tuck, the left arm trajectory gets shifted out too much at 6. As a golfer, to shallow the AOA and have a rightward SD, the wrist angles need to dump early causing contact issues. The handle can then start lowering through the hit causing two way misses, and retards the speed the golfer can thrust inhibiting speed.

Great work Mike, keep it up.

Everyone should also take note of the SPEED he is practicing to ingrain the motion the FASTEST. Do the BORING stuff on the range, so you can have FUN on the course!

I have recently embarked on a journey to overhaul my swing. I reached low single figures and scored well over the weekend - 69 & 71 in tough and windy conditions - but have come to the realisation that my flip release style swing gives a ballooning high ball flight which kills me in the wind and can cause the odd

destructive shot. I have dabbled with S&T; in the past but am very interested in the concept of the 5 Simple Keys. Are there any certified instructors in the UK?

As far as I know, no instructors in the UK yet but I think there has been some interest.  Closest is Tim Van Polen in Spain http://purestrike5sk.com/instructors.php

Another great option is our online instruction from 5SK instructors where we help golfer all over the world.

Forget about the OP's swing look at his boy's!!! Wow!!!!

You both have great swings and one can tell that you must have taught him (or he has watched you a lot).

I am not good enough to offer any suggestions besides they're both pretty swings.  Best of luck to your boy.

This.  The video with James and Dave is pretty gnarly... I don't think I'll get to this stage for at least another year, maybe two with the amount of time it has taken me to nail the pitched elbow piece! LOL

What I want to know is why -- after I watch any of your videos -- does YouTube invariably recommend me My Little Pony clips, Mike?

Makes perfect sense to me.

    • Maybe they have a kids table near the kitchen for team meals that they can sit at.
    • Gotta love an optimist who sees the 18 holes as half full, not half empty. Sheesh... you'd have a 2 handicap if you didn't have those multiple shanks.  Doctor, heal thyself.  Have you ever thought about hybrids, not irons (with those damn hosels)?  Do they make a hybrid gap wedge???  And Vinsk, have you ever shanked a putt... this I gotta hear...
    • I often con myself into thinking shanks are curable. They’re treatable, but not curable.
    • I always con myself into believing, no matter the circumstances, that my round should have been lower. I remember one instance in a particular when I shot a 9 over 81 and cited all the mistakes I made that cost me breaking 80. One of my playing  says "Are you kidding? The way you scrambled, you turned an 87 into an 81.".
    • Went to the range. Mostly worked out trying top speed the swing up a bit to see were it is at. Pretty decent with the irons, not so good with the driver. Then hit some pitches with the new wedges. Liking them 🙂. Still got to get use them looking thick.  Still got too slow down the backswing to feel it stop sooner. So it doesn't carry on as long. Not ready to ramp up.        A smidge closer, but could like to be a bit shorter. This was slower backswing. Back of left hand facing away more. Hands feel like they are head height (right ear) when I start the downswing. Could stand about 1 ball width further away from the ball (maybe).    Driver Swing - This one will take a while, with a lot of fricken effort. I might spend a lot of my time on the driver versus the irons. The same feel for the irons just don't work here. At least a the speed I want. So for the swing, the feeling is keeping the hands as far away from the body as possible at A3, but not by just keeping the arms straight as long as possible. The feeling was to start the downswing when the hands are head height. I think going forward, I am going to try to feel like the hands are not at head height, but more at shoulder height. Wrist bent at 90 degrees and hands are at my shoulder.  Besides that, needs to be a bit more squatty, and more right side over the ball (squishy).    Iron and more so Drive 1) Keep feeling like the downswing starts, and the hands stop ascending at or just short of shoulder height. I am starting to feel this position better. I can stop by backswing with the driver when I feel my right arm travel on way too much.  2) Feel like hands are pushing away from the body at A2 to A3. I like this feel to help feel where my hands are at in the backswing. If they just go up, and I let the right elbow break then it just carries on for days.  3) Still work on squat move with extension.
