My Swing (DeadMan)

I'm working on a new priority piece right now, and I'm having some issues. I'm trying to get my hands more even with my right hip at A6. The above videos are virtually identical to what I'm doing now, so they're a decent guide. Also, this means I'm struggling with implementing this priority piece. Does anyone have any feels or suggestions that might help out? I've tried a bunch, with no success. Slow practice swings look decent, but I can't translate them into a good feel for when I take a real swing.

Any ideas would be very appreciated!

Feel the left hand coming down - your left arm coming down across your chest - much faster.

What feels are you using right now?

The one I was trying most was somewhat similar to that - trying to feel like my hands got sped up in the downswing.

I also tried probably 3-4 other feels that I thought might help, but didn't do anything on video review: holding my hips back in the downswing, getting a ton of weight forward on the downswing, turning my hips more. Those are the ones off the top of my head.

I've been striking the ball pretty well recently, though, so I probably haven't been focusing on this priority as much as I should I have. I will keep at it.

Here's what I'd recommend.

- Lower the eyes/chin at address and get the weight more balanced (currently back on your heels).

- The address part will help this but don't roll the hands forearms on the takeaway. More "Jack Nicklaus" on the takeaway, keep the palm of the right hand "on top" and pointing towards the ground.

- Rolling the forearms leads to you loading the shaft on the shallow side

- Which causes you to steepen it coming down, this is why you have a tough time with Key 3 (getting the hands forward enough) on the downswing.

@mvmac - that's slightly different from what my evolvr instructor was pointing at. He wanted me to focus on (1) shallowing out the shaft in the downswing and (2) getting the hands even with my right thigh at A6. I've been struggling with the second part of that more than the first. I definitely see how what you're saying will help me, but I'm curious if I should attack all that right now or focus on what Preston wants me to work on for now (besides the address part; I will definitely work on that).

I have noticed that I go shallow to steep, and I've seen you and @iacas suggest that for others on here, but I haven't chased that yet.

Damn I hate when that happens :-P

I'd stick with what Preston recommended since he has more of a history with your move but maybe ask him about the shallow takeaway/backswing.

Sounds good. I will definitely ask him in my next submission.
