My Swing (S3venpieces)

So I don't know what happened to the all the text from my first post, but here goes again. I have been playing for a year, but more steadily the last couple months. my average scores are 90 somethings. The shot I hate and want to fix is my banana ball drive. [VIDEO]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Twlj0HLtx7k[/VIDEO]

I thought I had. But I was trying to do it from my phone. I tried to answer them again by memory when I noticed it wasn't in the first post. Is there more that I'm missing that you could tell me.

Okey doke. I just saw the later post you made. I'll add it to the first post.

Down swing is too "spinny" with the hips.  I'd work on feeling the left knee flex forward and longer on the down swing.  Check out this video http://thesandtrap.com/t/61376/5sk-video-thread/90#post_846019

Good video!! I definitely feel off balance most times. In that my follow through "photo finish" looks the part. But I have 45-60% of my weight on my right toe. Some of my best straight shots I end up flat footed. Which I think means I am only using my arms and upper body. Thanks for the info/video. I would appreciate all critique and direction

Would standing a little farther from the ball at address keep me from coming in so steep at impact?

Distance to the ball looks fine, you're not too close.  You can stand 5 ft away from it, not going to change the fact you spin rather than transfer forward

Gotcha. Can you describe a "thought" or "feeling" to zero in on to achieve the transfer?

Ok. Sorry to keep harassing, but.... I drilled on the info from both videos for a couple hours today. What I'm finding is that at point of impact while not being so "spinny" with my hips. My weight does indeed transfer over my left leg. I still feel once ball is gone and I'm in finish position I have 15% weight on my right big toe.( it's like my back arches through finish and some weight "ends" back on right) which may be moot since the ball is gone. I didn't hit any balls though just drilling the motion. However I guess my question would be: I feel like I have to "push off" with my right side at impact to finish the transfer of weight. Is this correct? Am I trying to put too much on it? Sorry again for being so questioning, but I really do value your opinion from what you've pointed out so far

I think the "push off" makes sense.  Like that video I shared, that golfer is definitely pushing off the ground.  If you really want to get more detailed, check out this thread http://thesandtrap.com/t/64993/weight-forward-using-swingcatalyst-and-sam-balance-lab-to-explain-pressure-throughout-the-swing

Is this guy a yahoo or will this help my slice problem. I've been working on weight transfer and posting up on left leg, but what this fella says seems contradictory. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=eqHMmMLW9J0&desktop;_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DeqHMmMLW9J0

The link didn't work too well but most "fix your slice" videos are done by yahoos

I'd recommend you look at these
