Firstly, it looks like you are a bit too hunched over shoulders wise. Your shoulders seem pretty far forward but that may be because you have a decent amount of knee bend at address.

Two things, you have a small hesitation at the top of your back swing right before your downswing and at the top of your back swing your left elbow is bending severely. I think you can extend a touch more at the top of your back swing for a bit more power. Also, try and keep that left elbow a bit straighter. Not mandatory but it should help you out.

backswing looks great, follow through could use a little more on line, think shakle hands, or take what I say for shit; that's what I would do.

Your head drops 3-4 inches during your backswing.  Tighten that up and you be good to go.  Don't dip down.

I've been Playing Golf for: 15 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 9-10

My typical ball flight is: draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: snap hook, block right

Path looks like it's to far out to the right and your face is a little shut at impact causing your ball to start left of target and draw more.  If your face is a few degrees more shut then you get the huge snap hook.  If you could work on zeroing out your path your misses would be alot tighter.

I think it's interesting how 20-25 handicap golfers are giving swing advice to a guy with a 7 index.

One of the smartest people I ever knew told me a long time ago "Listen to your men. Even the dumbest guy working for you will know something that you don't know".

Of course he was talking about on the job but it applies to just about anything...He also should have added that you have to be smart enough to weed out all of the dumb ideas they will also have.

I get the point ms256. if i look at my posts here and comments on other swings, i always try to give them something to work on, a drill.

As a single hdc player i see the things myself, your head dips down in backswing fix it and your ok. Yeah i know .....  if you have a closer look you can see

that when club on impact my head is at the same level as on setup.

I think your swing is pretty good (I would trade with you). My goal for the year is to actually have "a golf swing" instead of a whole bunch of them. I'm tired of shooting 68 one day and 80 the next too many times.

I never know when I show up at the course if I'm going to find a combination that works or not. On a good day it works from the start. On an average day I figure out something that's working by about the 9th hole. On bad days I figure it out when I get home after the round.

Right i'm a few lessons further now with my pro.

What we try to do is:

Take away goes fast to the inside, i need to keep the club head outside my hands on take away.

As i do that not only my path is better but it stops me from dipping in also.

we try to reduce the wrist action round impact. fast hands is sometimes good not always.

We try to do that at top off the follow true my left palm should point to the target.

will post new vid soon. waiting for the pro to sent them to me

That is the way to do it...one on one lessons with a local pro. Giving lessons off of a video posted is so damn hard.. You never know if you are sending the right angle..etc.. And the bad thing, if you are off just a fraction in the dtl view. It could be the difference between looking on plane vs being way off. I agree with the left palm should point to the target. Being flippy at the bottom isn't a end all, just hard to time it for us working guys. We all have are own unique swing issues, some u just have to live with..others you can modify Good swing though

Whohoooooo my first official under par round! -2 included 3 eagles ( 1 hole in one ) and a birdie. ended the round with a double bogey, got a bit over exited after the ace on 17.

Congrats! That's quite an accomplishment!

+1.   That's an incredible stat for a golf career, never mind for one round.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
