I struggle with weight transfer to left side and early release. Any suggestion on how to work on this at range?

If you watch any of the pros in slow mo, youll see they start moving there weight forward before they end their backswing. Try doing that which should also let you hold your angle longer.

What's up, Jeff!

Care if I offer my two cents?

First off, post a down-the-line view when you can! That'd help us! :-) It's hard to tell, but it looks as if the shoulders are turning too flat. I can't be sure without a DTL clip, but if that's the case, then I think your priorities change a little bit.

OK, here's what I see from this face-on view... We're going to work on keys no.1 and no.2: Steady head and weight forward.

1) Narrow your stance width.

I'd prefer you to err on the side of too narrow rather than too wide, as your current stance width is inhibiting a number of things, while also exacerbating problems. With a narrow stance, you'll have a better probability of controlling low point, and it will be much easier to transfer forward in the downswing.

2) Control your hip center.

Once you narrow your stance, it may also be beneficial to feel some pressure being applied into your lead foot on the backswing. This "feel" would be useful in regards to keeping your hip center stable. Because, remember, if the hip center slides back, it's just going to be that much harder to get forward on your downswing.

3) Add PRESSURE into your front foot as the downswing commences and then slide the hips, tuck the butt, and thrust the pelvis through the strike.

Hopefully you've already read about the importance of sliding one's hips on the downswing, but if not, click this link and study up a bit. But this move allows to weight to transfer forward while also keeping the head relatively steady through impact.

And here's the video you should watch that is associated with the information I shared in the last photo (your finish position):

Again, a DTL view would help things, but I think this is a pretty good start here as far as having stuff to work on. Work on them in order if you can, and obviously, the driving range is the best place to practice this stuff! Slow down, shorten stuff up, and really try to implement the new pieces in a slower tempo swing where you can have a bit more control over what you are doing.

Good luck! :beer:

If you're going to say things like this, please at least try to back them up with something resembling reality.

From here (not my lines drawn, but you can see the shoulder tilt):

And that's not to say that a "steep" shoulder plane is at all required. There are several PGA Tour players with flatter shoulder planes. "Steep shoulder plane" is not something we necessarily prescribe, though it takes some more manipulation than we often like to have a flat shoulder plane with a relatively steady head.

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
