I find it helps to "feel" like I'm tilting towards the target starting around A2.7 or so, seems to counteract the sway which for me can start to creep in around A3 if I don't monitor it. Video shows that I'm not actually doing that, but staying centered.

Do you mean sway towards your back foot?

Yeah, basically if I don't stretch the right side (which I tend to feel as tilting towards the target) my head and upper body will translate off the ball in the last portion of my backswing . As long as I feel a bit of tilting I can usually stay within the acceptable parameters.

Thats what I do. I tilt towards my back foot especially with long irons and woods. Ill give that a try.

So make a conscious effort to tilt the opposite way. You may need to really exaggerate the feel at first. Work with a mirror so you can get a feel for how much you need to feel to get you in the right position at A4.

Cool thanks. At first I was having the feeling of leaning towards the ball because I was going up at takeaway. Once I addresses that Mike showed me how much I was going back.

I went to the range yesterday and was working on key 1 and it was going well.I noticed that my ball flight was lower. I was wondering if its normal for my trajectory to be lower if I'm staying more over the ball? All the irons I hit well (driver also) seemed to have a lower ball flight

Possibly, you should still be hitting it "high enough". Not knock down trajectory shots. If you are, head could be going too far forward on the downswing.

Its not like a knockdown. I'd say basically 1 club lower so. My 6 looks like my 5 used to. I also should say I used to hit the ball higher than everyone I play with.

Yeah that was going to be my next question ;-)

Then it makes sense that you might be hitting it a little lower. Post a video when you can.

I've been working hard on key 1 and I feel like I have improved a lot. I was at the range twice this week and I keep hitting pull draws or just pulls. Is there a feel I should have at impact to keep the face open or at least square?

Feels vary from player to player. Post a video if you can. Just a guess, could be the left shoulder raising too soon on the downswing, head "tips" back a little. Causes the pivot to stall, not opening up enough with the hips, toe "closes" faster.

It could even be as simple as you need to aim a little more right ;-)

Ill try to get a video up soon. I've been at a range where I can only get a down the line view. Its been to cold to hit outside (flipping Wisconsin). Ill try aiming right first since I'm probably stuck at the indoor range another few weeks.

Really working on Key #1.  I only took a few swings Its 39 degrees but I got a tripod and 32g memory card for my wife's camera so I had to give it a try.  It looks a lot better than the older videos. I want to get analyzr student and play around with that but Im happy it looks better than the end of last year.

That does look much better. Nice work!

Thank you sir.  Im sure there is other things to work on.  I wanted to get Key #1 down before I worried about anything else. If there is anything else you see feel free to let me know.

I'm no Pro, but I agree, that looks a ton better than your last FO vids where your head was really drifting back. Good work!!!
