Not looking for tips necessarily (other than camera angles and positioning) but won't be offended if someone offers them. I'm not working on anything in particular other than just staying in shape, and in this video, trying out my new camera.

The first few swings this day felt like garbage. No idea where the ball was going because I was very aware of the off kilter camera position and my alignment felt awkward somehow right from the start. Eventually I just said "F it" and hit a few with my normal tempo.

I'll add some FO video and some irons, but promise nothing spectacular or enlightening. Just capturing my swing for posterity and hoping to learn a bit about camera work before my daughter is ready to have her swing recorded (a couple summers away).

Peace out.

Yeah, if you posted a DL video I didn't see or don't remember it. From this face-on-view if you deliver the clubhead with any outward path it's likely that you release #2 (cocking/uncocking the

Looks good man.  Kind of steve strickerish in the backswing and you make a good powerful move through the ball.

If your looking to make small changes you could look for some  Dan Pohl swing videos, you've already got a couple of his moves

Consider yourself lucky I didn't post 2+ minutes of this . . .

Thanks. Good post. Good reference.

Of course, there's always ours: http://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing .

I think s_m purposefully chose bad camera angles so we wouldn't draw lines all over his swing.

Thanks for not giving us the super slow motion version that to me is becoming the bane of these threads.

S_M - is your bad miss with the driver a nasty cut off the toe?

My "typical" good driver shot is straight with either a very slight fade or draw depending on the day.  That day I did actually hit a few slices and a couple snap hooks - not so typical for me - chalked it up to making goofy swing path compensations because of the poor camera alignment. Surely just being a generally shitty player had nothing to do with it!?!

Coincidentally, I warmed up with a 2-iron, which was odd. Maybe on days when a 2-iron off the turf feels very comfortable I should play for a nasty slice off the toe with my driver?

Looks like Stack 'n Tilt ... arms in, right leg straightens ... very good!

(My quick comment is that towards the top, it looks as if you steepen, then flatten. Looked again, the arms are in, then come slightly out when you steepen slightly before flattening)

I'm not going to respond to that beyond the fact my swing is relatively unchanged since I started playing in the mid 1980s. Basically it predates S&T; by a few years.

So anyway, one thing has apparently changed over the years. Apparently I'm hitting a pull draw with my 2-iron now and that's playing havoc with my driver.  Still hitting it long(ish) but maybe I'm relying on the 2-iron too much. I need to straighten this out.

2-iron.

Then it works!

I wish I could say the same for my work in progress.... :-)

I hope you don't mind but i was looking at a couple of your other videos and it looks like your fighting against a lateral shift away from the target with your driver but you ride with it with your long iron. Some of the greatest players to play the game had a move away from the target, Hogan, Snead and a younger Tiger moved off the ball with their longer clubs but stayed centered with their shorter irons

    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
