Welcome to the site!!!

For future reference please embedd the videos. Just copy the youtube link, click the film real icon in the reply box, and paste the link. It helps us out because it allows anyone to view the video on the forum here. Thanks!!!

I would say take a look at this video. I think you need to get a bit more of your hips open at impact, and the belt buckle pointing more towards the sky in the finish. This is probably causing you to hit it slightly fat because your weight isn't forward enough. This can be seen in your right foot not rolling and starting to raise that right heel off the ground.  You do really good at getting your left hand inline with the ball and your left shoulder at impact though. Very solid swing.

I also might say for a 7 iron the ball is slightly back. I would move it forward about an inch and a half. More offset your left ear instead the middle of your stance. The ball can start to creep backwards if you catch them fat from time to time.

Thank you for the reply!

I have been a member of the site before and I loved it! Would you agree that my swing is more like the one on the right in the video?

I would.

If you were a member before ( @Goinglow59 ?), we'd ask that you resume using that username rather than having a new one.

Also, are you capable of filming anything in high speed, and/or showing some launch monitor data? With a swing that's generating a 0/1 handicap index or so, it's incredibly tough to find things at 30 FPS.

    • Considering I was 4 years old. 200?  Is that legal?
    • Is that one of your pics?  If it is...outstanding sir!  Love the way the grass and dirt from the divot exploded around him.  Very cool.
    • Yep. The picture you posted of the top of the grips to show the difference in length caught my eye...the blue grip on the Mizzy looks like it might not be on all the way or something like that. Are all the Mizuno irons that much longer than all the Hogan irons, or is each club a little different?  Or do you just have the 5 irons for the Radials and not the whole set?  You could also measure them like this to find out: Should be 37 3/4". I'm curious on which one is not the stock length.
    • 24/2/17 - more mirror work with P2 and P3 the focus. This is definitely starting to feel more natural. Well done for taking the plunge and posting videos. Lots of good things in the swing and I'm sure when you post the my swing thread, someone will give you the right tips to move forward. Well worth doing though; I've gained a lot from mine. Keep it up!
    • I watched this video...watched the whole thing. I'm familiar with Mark's videos and I think he generally does a really good job. I see the result of his test, and it was interesting.  I happen to have extensive first-hand experience with launch data and have literally tested thousands of players over the course of 18 years, 10 of those when I was with a major golf ball manufacturer, and although I like Mark, I don't know another way to say this other than just about everything he said is wrong. Think about it logically...how can a low compression, 2-piece, Surlyn covered ball perform virtually the same as a high compression, 3 or 4-piece, urethane covered ball with different dimple patterns?  They claim the difference is in the feel and performance with wedges?  That would mean if my spin rate was too high with my driver, moving to a different model ball will have no effect in reducing it.  This is flat-out incorrect. The fact is distance balls do go further than high spin "tour" balls for most players, and playing a lower spinning ball will help reduce your hook or slice.  I'm not just spouting off something I read somewhere or giving you my opinion...I have worked with players of all abilities, watched them hit several shots with a certain ball, analyzed their launch numbers for areas that need improving and asked them to hit a different ball and compared the data.  There is a difference.  For some players it might be more dramatic than others, but it's nonsense to think all balls are within a few yards of each other or all balls curve the same amount.  Here is an example: For this player, there is 15 yards difference between these two models, and the longer ball curves less too (although it's not a lot).  And these two models are closer in design than the Pro V1 and DT Solo.  I'm not sure why the results in the video example didn't show any difference, but working with 20-25 players per day, 5 days a week for many years I have seen the difference with my own eyes.  Will everyone gain 20-25 yards or reduce their slice by 35%?  No...but I've seen it happen.  Average is closer to 9 yards and 30%.
