Wow I hit a large bucket of balls today and... I think I'm about to start playing holding a tee like that

Unfortunately you can't use it if you want to post the score, 14-3

I am finding a lot of similarities between our swings. You do a great job with your knee action. I'm pretty envious. I saw a couple things that you do with your right knee that I'm going to try myself.

Not exactly a trait of a Stupid Monkey ;-)

Just played 18 without hitting a single big push, felt great! I think I might be getting longer of the tee too, but I might just be striking it purer

I had to change a few things in my swing because of a back injury. I'm not hitting it nearly as far as before, but it's a pretty easy swing to repeat at least

i read through chunks of the comments and agree with almost all. I have found in my own swing that the "standing up" is mostly caused by the lower body.   You can read a lot about "early hip extension" which is the lower body mvoing towards the ball line coming down.  The upper body then has to stand up to give you room to hit the ball.   Most of us move the ball away from us to get more room.   Keep the belt buckle back is one solid tip but the idea is to not let the lower body move towards the ball.  Another tip is to feel like your butt stays against the wall behind you until after impact.   Your right hip stays back, the left hip returns to the wall.   That will help you keep the lower body back, your upper body will then stay over the ball instead of rising.

I am also not a fan of pinching the knees together at address.   You want some stability while allowing you room to turn.   It's a tradeoff but no tour pro will pinch the knees to the extent you have done so here.

I think I made a lot of progress thanks to advice I got here. Idk how much better it is, but I'm really liking my swing now

Heya guys. I started getting back into golf recently after taking 3 years off. It seems like my swing held up a lot better than I expected, although my short game definitely didn't haha. What do you guys think I should work on first? (Other than the belly I have now)

I ended up getting a lesson and I found out that I need to start my hip rotation earlier in my swing, which will lead to me needing to flip my arms less and create less of a reverse C position in my follow thru. I'm working on implementing this change, but it's tough to make myself do something that feels so novel. I feel like I'm starting to see some minor results though. I seem to be finishing with a more vertical angle for my swing path like the instructor told me I would and my stock shot is going a little straighter!

I'm starting to develop a lot more confidence in the new motion with my irons, and I'm noticing my mishits are becoming a lot less severe! I'm still doing some leaning back through impact, but I think it looks a bit better than it did two weeks ago.

I learned recently that you can record in slomo on iphones at get a lot more frames. I'm still fighting a hook with my driver, but I seem to be keeping my head a little more still than I used to be.

Lay the alignment stick along your toe line, then aim the camera at that line. The reason to do this is instructors can see the position of your hands and club head along all the check points, A1 to A9. Where you have it lined up, it is harder to see that.

Cool I'll try that. Also, I didn't realize how closed my feet were against my target line. That might explain my issues hitting it left. Thank you for the feedback!
