Here are a few links to a vid of my swing
Thought I would post here, so i can find it later if need be

I am hiring a full time swing coach over the winter, so it will be nice to compare video's
I would say it has come a long way since last year, for sure

What i like about your swing is that you have absolutely no arm lift,when your upper body finishes turning that's it,no lift,you just go.Good stuff.

That is, without a doubt, one of the best swings I've seen posted on this board. Your backswing looks about half as long as your follow through - which reminds me of maple syrup.

I'd look but I hate using anything other than Vimeo or YouTube (because I can download the source video easily from those sites). Any chance you can post them on a site like those two (which can also embed the videos in the thread post itself)?

heres some youtube for you

sorry for the low quality vid and bad angles - I know you need better to properly assess a swing - driver side - driver rear view - 8i side view

Nice smooth swing... great finish.

When you get home tonight take an old 5 iron and swing to the top with your back close to (~12") from a nice, sturdy wall.

I bet I can guess what your coach will ask you to work on. :)

I know i still have a bit of sway on the backswing.....been workin on that a lot this year WAAAAYYYYY better than 2009's swing tho i reall dont like the shortness of the backswing tho...it was a tip from a previous lesson, that i think is a band aid.....but im not really sure

My swing is/was similar to yours, and I bet we've got the same types of missed shots too...

I'll load a new video soon as the change was dramatic, but look at how laid-off the club is 1/2 and 3/4 of the way back (you are better than i was here). The clubhead falls way below the ideal plane on the way back, and it's easy to get stuck from that position.

My swing coach had me stand a bit closer to the ball (I too was a bit on my heels and too far away), and he made sure my first move was 1-piece inside with my hands, keeping the clubhead well outside of my hands at 1/2 back. He challenged me to try and bring the butt of the club as close to my right hip as I could. He also got rid of my wristy waggle. All of this has worked to bring my hands deeper while keeping the club in front of my chest going back... about as opposite as my old swing was.

Things felt awful, but the results have been pretty staggering. It's much easier to find the correct plane coming into the ball, and I'm much less likely to get stuck. Things are taking hold now, and I'm hitting much more accurate shots.

Best of luck over the winter!

The side-by-side DTL swings are pretty unreal.

??? work on what....

Sorry... Thought you'd been around long enough to know what I was referring to there.

Ask yourself this question: on what plane are you swinging your hands and the clubhead and the shaft in this image?

??? work on what....

Based on something I worked on with my short irons and driver this summer, try to keep the clubhead travelling down the target line a bit longer on the way back. It feels awkward at first, but then when you get it BLAM - everything is on plane and you wonder how that happened.

EDIT: I guess it's been confirmed that I was looking at the right thing.

No worries man. Seeing it for the first time is always eye-opening. You're a 2.9... just imagine how things can improve with a few small changes.

    • Day 281: Played 18 this morning. Driver, for the most part, was excellent. Made a slight change in my backswing that we worked on in Erie with the head less out at A2. Combined it with the long, slow high feel.   Wedges were coming out low, so I went to the range after to work on that. 
    • Yeah…but that’s what he wants! Lol. He mentions slicing the ball outta the range but somehow thinks that will translate to getting someone to rotate through to get that face square. I didn’t re-watch in slow motion but I’d bet he’s not even doing what the thinks he’s doing.
    • Another 75 today. I've been playing my best golf ever my last 4 rounds I've gone +3, +4, +3, +3. It has been a consistent flow of the rounds though. I get off to a bad first 3-4 holes and wind up a few over par, get super hot make a bunch of birdies and fight back to even par or better, then the last few holes I fall apart. Just need to clean some stuff up, hit more fairways, make a few more par saving putts and I'm right there. One of my goals for the year was to have an under par round I think it's just a matter of time I need to just keep pushing. The putting work I've been doing recently has definitely helped a ton not that long ago my career high was 3 birdies but the last 4 rounds I've had 5 in two, 4 in another, and 2 in the last so that is confidence inspiring. 
    • “Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.”   Yeah, it sounds like your course at least considers golfers who are playing, i.e., if the “early” closing on Sunday is at 4 or 5, not many still trying to squeeze in a round would be disadvantaged. And then reopening the range at 11:30 on Monday, when the course itself doesn’t reopen until noon, likewise shows consideration.   Agreed, closing the range on Monday or Tuesday morning (especially with a posted reopening time) makes way more sense (to me anyway) than closing at 3 on Sunday.
    • Finally got a birdie on the index 1 on my home course, its my first ever and it came because of a mishit 9 iron, it's a 440 yard par 4 with a narrow dogleg at about the 220 yard from the tee mark. I had a good drive and left myself 150 yards out but I fatted a 9 iron about 90 yards. I hit a 56 degree wedge perfectly from 60 yards and it took two hops and fell straight in for my first ever hole out from any further than a nGIR distance. Delighted with the shot in what was a poor round
