I think it will be very helpful once you do that (upload another video)... But I also have a question if you don't mind.. Do you always end up in that end position facing the target? Or was it a one off?

Not always, this video was from last year, I'm a little better at "turning in the barrel" now, also I had sneakers on, I don't know but it looks in that swing that my weight is too far in my heels therefore I lost my balance

New swing video, i need to figure out what I'm doing.

This video has a really bad swing in the middle, but has both down the line and face-on shots in one video... any constructive criticism is appreciated, and if @iacas or @mvmac have any drills to help out, it would be appreciated.

I'd really spend some time working on this portion. Your shoulders go up a bunch, your head goes up a bunch, and your posture in general can be better. Check out the "shoulder pitch with driveway sticks" video, and note the right foot rolling out in the right frame below:

Thanks Erik, I'll definitely check that video out.

Tried the drill in the video, it works good, I'll do that everyday for a week and film another video to show how I'm progressing... with this issue... I might have to go back to square one.

Erik,

I noticed something, I'm swinging past parallel (haven't been able to get the club that far back since my accident).is there a someway to feel how far back I'm taking the club back? I need to flare my feet more, and bend more from the hips.

I think the better the pivot gets the less "need" you'll have to lift the arms/swing past parallel.

I'd also add this drill and some right foot flare to fix what's going on with the right foot on the backswing.

I just wanted to thank @iacas and @mvmac for their help with my swing, and suggesting the drills, I did the drills for five to ten minutes before I hit balls today... 

I need to upload a driver swing, because though it feels more in balance, I'm still getting "weird" numbers out of the driver, I'm getting more spin than I want which is robbing me of distance.

What are you using to get your numbers and from where?

I was getting like 3000+ rpm spin and 13-14° launch (my ball speed stinks), But that's on Dick's crappy launch monitor, on Flightscope it's around 2700 (That's what Greater Golf has now). 

I tried teeing it off my left little toe and teeing higher, I got a little higher launch, but the spin was the same, I might be still trying to hit down on it... My AoA on FlightScope  (Which is the one I care about) is around -3°.

Yeah that's going to have to change. Keep doing those drills and monitor that right foot on the backswing.

Will do, I'll upload a driver video on Thursday or Friday (Have to work 2 long days, the joys of being a cook)... It seems like the drills definitely make a difference... especially with the 7-iron.

Mike,

Should I do those drills everyday for like a month, and do an updated video?

If it was me I'd film myself doing the drills and post that and maybe some 50% speed swings.

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
