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.

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.

    • Found this link looking at Tiger and his new swing. Michael Jordan makes some very good points about why the term "GOAT" doesn't make sense. Smart guy.
    • I think we were.  Yes, this is a GREAT feature, long overdue Some people even make Snaps (snapchat) while driving.   
    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
