Because of the wide stance it looks like you are unable to finish your hip turn so you end up swaying back. If you shorten your stance you will be able to maintain a better pivot all the way to the end of the BS. Agree with what @cipher said above as well! I think the weight forward will also help with your flat wrist at impact as well, key#3.

Thanks for the feedback.  I worked on keeping my stance narrow this weekend, along with making a circular turn rather than lateral.  Results were pretty good.

Video A is a very straight ball with a lot of distance (for me).  Target is the tiny white flag/club house.  Carry is around 240 yds, with another 15 yds or so of rollout.

Video B is an example of my miss which is becoming more common the past month.  I "feel" the same when making the swing but the result is a big high slice way off target.  It is manageable on course but still a big miss and ugly.

Can anyone spot a difference in swings between the two videos?  Video B I feel like I end up very off balance.

About a 10 handicap right now.  Driver is R1 stiff stock shaft set at 12*.

Yes we filmed vertically.  Oops.

Swings are basically the same.

Few things to take a look at with your posture.

- Chin and eyes are up.

- Weight is back on your heels.

- Shoulders are aimed well left and the feet are aimed right.

Also this post from a couple years ago ;-)

With the swing the shoulders turn too level. To change it you need everything work on a steeper inclination and watch that the right arm doesn't slide behind your shirt seam. The steeper part will improve as the posture gets better but I would also work on this drill.

Really appreciate the input @mvmac.  Wondering when I will be receiving my TST invoice for work rendered over two years worth of swing thread...

Did not realize where my head/eyes were at.  What a difference it makes to stare down the ball from middle of the eyes rather than head up and looking down to it.  That seems to facilitate a shoulder turn around the axis and prevent excessive lateral sway.  I've found now that when I find myself with my head up and eyes looking downward to the ball, my head/neck prevent a smooth shoulder turn and cause me to sway back in my swing and off the ball, which results in a lot of bad stuff clearly.

Taking notes from all the videos and links, looks like my swing is flat with a shoulder turn that is too level.  I've made a conscious effort to steepen and have a shoulder turn that is more consistent with the above diagram, has worked wonders.

Thanks for the pointers!

Great to hear!

    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
    • Thing is TV shows the good shots, the putts being made so we all think they hit everything close and make every putt. Go look up PGA tour proximity to the hole... you’d be surprised it’s not close like you see.
    • I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.
    • I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.
