Practice session. First, working on some 1/4 - 1/2 swings:

Then working on some slow swings:

You set them to disallow embedding.

What I'm working on:

-Keeping "belt buckle" pointing down at ball longer

-Separating lead shoulder from head at beginning of downswing (it tends to "pull" my head with it)

-Keeping hands in front of body

-Keeping elbow in on backswing more

-Shortening backswing (never-ending battle)

NOTE: middle swing is a slow practice swing

Working on 50-60 yd. shots. Also a flop shot thrown in at end of Down-the-line video. Camera angles not great. Working on:

-Keeping head steady
-Keeping belt buckle pointing to ball longer
-Keeping hands in front of body

Working on a drill to get that left hip turned and up earlier in the down swing. Drill works well, but when I add some speed, it's harder to maintain.

As you know, the more you work on it, the better you get and the faster you can do it successfully.

Working out straightening left leg, and keeping head back in downswing. Both caddie view and down the line view in same video. Down the line shot isn't as pulled as it looks - feet are open to camera line - bad angle.

Happy Winter Solstice everyone! It only gets better from here.

I need a priority piece for the next couple of months. Below is a video of my swing (I know, no ball, big no-no, but I was impatient). My ball flight on the course has been decent lately, small draw, and scores have been coming down substantially (although it's off season and I can't post them). My miss has been a low hook. Assuming my on course swing looks more or less like this, should I work on:

a) Getting the back-swing more on plane (it's a bit inside)

b) Shortening the swing a bit and getting a bit less across the line, elbow should be tucked in more at top

c) getting the weight forward better on downswing (which I struggle with because it pulls my head forward, causing other issues)

d) Getting hips more open at impact (another struggle, as I then tend to open shoulders too fast and come over the top)

e) Straightening left leg earlier (which I also struggle with because it seems to pull me out of my swing and cause contact issues)

f) Something else entirely

Your input would be GREATLY appreciated!

@chspeed, what is your goal for A4? If I were you, I would let the club lay off a bit more before starting the DS (right wrist bend back more little more skywards). I think you can hinge a bit earlier (A2) too. 

Of course, please take this with a grain of salt but it has worked for me greatly and I have a similar club path issue.

@chspeed, I love ya man, but those are practice swings. Not even hitting a wadded up ball of paper or anything. Odds that those look like your actual swing are slim.

Thanks @GolfLug

I'd love my A4 to look more like the picture below, even with the elbow a bit more tucked in and the club more laid off. I can (and have) worked on this, and can generally change the picture when I focus on it. When I get to the course, I often revert to a longer, looser swing. If this should be my priority, I believe I can do it. In terms of A2, I agree, I seem to cock the wrist late, which may cause other issues in the back-swing. Again, something I can consciously change, but should that be a priority?

I knew you'd say that. 😂

OK, OK, will post swing with ball this weekend.

Went to the range to film the swing. As @iacas magically knew, the swing doesn't look quite the same. I'm a bit more across the line at the top, didn't do as good of a job with Key #1, and flipped more than I did without a ball 🤔. Ball flight was decent. Any help with priorities would be greatly appreciated!

Decided to work on a&b (better backswing) for now. Working at home. slow and specific swing. That funny thing I'm swinging at is a rolled up sock.🤓

    • Exactly my point. You're choosing to exclude a brand of product that you admit makes a good product simply on the off chance you don't like the clubs that the resale value is going to be lower than you feel it should be. While you're obviously entitled to do so, I don't think that is a good reason to exclude a company and not even consider them when making future purchases. We aren't talking about a car or something here, we are talking about a couple hundred bucks at the most, and that's only on the off chance that you don't like the clubs. Out of curiosity, which irons are you referring to and how much did you pay for them in 2011?
    • I recently had a tournament and a friend's event all outside in 85+ deg and 90% humidity. The keys for me were to Cooling towel, water, Gatorade, good food (turkey sandwich and banana) and an umbrella. Use all of these early and often. Also if you are walking go at your pace, don't rush to keep up. Take a few extra seconds to catch your breath, wrap your head or get some water.   Finally, I found that taking my hat off in the shade and using some cool water was a big help.   Good luck
    • So Mr. 202 has been looping for Matt Every. Not a star, but a guy that has had some success. He has two career wins and had a second-place finish and a third earlier this year. But ... Now Matt has to answer questions about his idiot caddie and he's missed the cut three of the last four tournaments.  Trey better hope that Matt really likes him.
    • Not to me. If person buys a new set of irons in the spring, only to find out that he hates them in the fall, he will then take a big hit to make a change. My Pings are from 2011 and they are still worth half of what I paid for them. My son plays TM and loves them. They do make a good product, just too many changes.
    • It's been over a month since I started experiencing a sharp pain in my chest and armpit area in my lead side from apparent overuse. I am guilty on numerous occasions of reaching for the large bucket at the driving range, sometimes even twice in one session, and just overall engaging in very fast paced, frustration-filled practice sessions. I've tried everything from the RICE method in the early stages of the injury (rest, ice, compression and elevation), visited a sports specialist orthopedic who pretty much just confirmed my own self diagnosis of an intercostal muscle strain from overuse and advised that with these types of injuries there isn't much that can be done other than give it time and ease back into normal activity over time. Very eager to continue playing and practicing, being that it's mid-season here in the northeast, I tried playing again just a week after initial injury and seemed to have set myself back. I then gave myself more rest time, about three weeks to be exact of not swinging a club, and started incorporating stretches and light weight training to help with the rehab. I've since played about three rounds and hit the driving range on one occasion but continue to experience pain. While not as extreme as how it felt when I first injured myself, I'm frustrated with the lack of progress. Definitely thought I would be good by now. Now I've totally learned my lesson and realized what not to do in the future and even improved my swing substantially so that it's smoother and less violent from reading several books (Hogan, Penick) and practicing my slow swings without a club in front of the mirror. What I am curious to know is if anyone has experienced a similar golf injury and managed to successfully treat it and get back on the course pain free, and of course how long did it take...
