Johnny, I had to laugh at the setup - you've gotta be single - no way you wouldn't kill someone walking down that hall if you had a gf/wife/roomie! LOL

Seriously though - I think you have a pretty solid swing.  One thing I'd work on is getting the arms reattached to the trunk.  You get long on the backswing which is going to cause/force compensations and timing to hit the proper plane on the downswing.

Not a bad swing at all a lot is in place. two things

1. Not swing related try not to stand over the ball as long. I can see you are thinking about things as you stand over it. Once you step and are ready, just pull the trigger you will play with a lot more freedom.

2. The backswing in basic terms is a mix of shoulder turn, or the around in a golf swing vs the amount of up or wrist hinge in the swing. To me you have too much "up" or wrist hinge in your swing causing a steep angle of attack and those shots flying left to right. I will guess the topped shots are coming from getting out ahead of the ball so here is what I would suggest.

Try too feel no wrist's in the backswing. Just feel a Shoulder Turn . Also try to feel your right palm facing the ground longer when you take it back. Your wrists are working fine so more shoulder turn should get you on plane nicely. On the downswing just feel your head staying back and not racing out ahead and I think you will get rid of the tops. Remember if you ever get off plane it is just too much of one aspect, shoulder turn or around in the swing, or wrist hinge and up in the swing.

Good luck!

thanks for the feedback. I got my instructor telling me I need to hinge my wrists earlier

If that a practice ball?  If so you've got some cojones hitting down that narrow fairway.  I mean, hallway.

    • I started playing when I was 3 or 4yrs old, I don't really know.  But I was breaking 90 by age 14.  
    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
