Is this a little better? It feels more armsy.

An aside, I'm mystified how some people get secondary axis tilt at the top of the backswing without moving their head.

@nevets88 I am happy to provide an extra set of eyes but keep in mind that I ain't qualified to teach squat! Having said that, I think that looks MUCH better. I'll leave the final word with the pros but I suspect that if you can do that in a full swing your key#1 is solid. Doesn't look too handsy to my untrained eye, you have a pretty full turn by A3. I bet you really feel that extra bit of side bend/stretch from A3 to A4 now eh?

Thanks @Ernest Jones , ya, feel much more wound up. No way to take a big backswing this way. Head is still going back a bit, but less I think. My thinking is that with less head translation, it'll be easier to get the hands to the ball at A6.

Not an amount to worry about, yeah.

P.S. You could still over-swing by folding your elbows and wrists too much. But go with this - it looks great.

I took a week off because I felt I hit a wall that made the Great Wall of China look like a dollhouse's white picket fence. Had zero compunction to go to the range. Coming back, I felt refreshed and I think I learned a couple of new things.

When I make a better backswing when I feel like I'm not turning the lower body and just getting the hands in and up (really up) and left shoulder back. It's like the X-Factor, which I know has been revised w/caveats but perhaps I've been making such a big hip turn on the backswing, I've been overdoing letting the left hip go. It feels like only my arms are working the backswing when it looks "right" on video. I'm thinking, left shoulder back, lock left hip, hands in, keep right arm over left.

The ugly lunge follow through I have. When I just let the arms swing around me on the follow through, without turning the shoulders towards the target, it looks more like the finishing swing of good players.

Still working on not translating the head back, I can do it without the ball, and like 1/10 times with a ball. When I see I do a 3/4 swing, it feels like a chip shot. It's really ... f**king ... hard ... not to overswing. If I could stop just past A3 all the time, I'd be golden... I think.

Also, I think I'm finally beginning to understand better what instructors like @iacas meant when they told me to fire the arms, karate chop.

Better backswing? Lungy follow through.

No ball practice slow swing

Lunge follow through - bowling for pars! Trying to drive arms - drive everything along with them.

Shank - trying to drive right shoulder too much?

Less lungy, more arms

Reverted to old bs, but better follow through?

Errr, still translating back - get arms higher?

Head going forward and down at the start, not getting hips forward enough, look really static-y. Flip city follow through. Gotta keep workin' it.

Dude, don't be too picky.

Let your left shoulder go a bit more horizontal during the takeaway. Hips are far enough forward, but could be a teeny bit more. Keep this up, and don't be too picky. This is looking very good.

Awesome. So keep this up and it'll be less flippy?

My best key #1 I think, ever. Last swing of the session - had a half bucket of balls left but had to leave them because of family commitments. Grrrr.... Also, so busy, forgot to wear my golf shoes - those are my street shoes.

Still something funky going on post impact I feel. Can't seem to get the hands all the way behind the head on the follow through.

Not sure which is better. Head is steadier on right though.

Looks better to me. Camera angles are different, so the left one will look slightly under turned, right one slightly more turned but better for sure.

I think a good way for you to practice this piece is to get the right side of your head against a door jam or even one of those poles in the background and make slow swings, getting 90 degrees of turn by A3 without you head bumping into the pole.

Nice work there, keep doing that. Just make sure to transfer forward on the downswing.

Thanks. Hope all is well re: wildfires @mvmac . Heard they are dying down.

My tendency is to throw everything forward (esp. upper body)  if I try and transfer forward, but to me, it's pretty glaring on that video that I'm not getting forward enough. Instead of using a pole to keep the head from going back in the BS, I could use it to keep from going forward post impact?

Everyone is good thanks. Got scary for a little bit but things seem to be under control for now.

Yeah I struggle with the same thing. The pole feel is a good idea. Really "press" into that left foot so the left knee stays flexed a little longer. Will allow you to push the hips up and forward on the followthrough.

Camera angle shows a good shaft angle at impact, not sure where the flipping your talking about is happening, we have to release the club at some point

    • I started watching Heels the other day on Starz.  I wasn't enthralled by the pilot, but by episode three I thought it was carrying its weight.  It goes a little off the rails occasionally, but when the subject matter is pro wrestling, what do you expect?
    • My home course has a few drainage “channels” that are shaped into certain fairways that I suppose are intended to capture and then divert water elsewhere. Maybe a foot wide and 3-4 inches deep, but definitely part of the fairway. They’re not French drains or depressions from some subterranean drainage system. Just an unlucky spot for your ball to stop. Unless there is standing water in them, I’ve always just attempted to play the ball out, which can be a challenge. 
    • These things have perfectly good grass in them. The grass is cut to the same length and there is no stones under the grass. There is no mention of them on the score card. I think my friend has it wrong. Thanks for the replies. 
    • You can't just make up whatever Local Rules you want. They're not allowed under the Rules of Golf. So, I'm asking you to do a little work instead of just guessing at what may be possible here. This is the Rules of Golf forum. Let's post knowledgeable answers, not "my guess is…" answers. So, what local rule or regular rule do you think might allow relief from a drainage "depression"? Particularly given that a "drainage ditch" is included in the definition for "penalty area." Does a drainage ditch meet any of these for an ACC? Abnormal Course Condition Any of these four defined conditions: Animal Hole, Ground Under Repair, Immovable Obstruction, or Temporary Water. It also doesn't sound like Model Local Rule F-20 applies: Model Local Rule F-20 “Drainage channels that are made of artificial materials and run next to cart paths are treated as immovable obstructions in the general area and are part of the cart path. A player may take free relief under Rule 16.1b.
    • This sounds like a French drain. If the rocks that are part of its construction are visible  (meaning the sod on top of it is gone), it is a free drop as a man made object, just like a cart path. If there is grass on top, even though it's a visible depression, I don't think it can be a free drop, unless the course has a local rule allowing that.
