I've been Playing Golf for: 20 years on and off. My current handicap index or average score is: 95 for 18 holes. My typical ball flight is: Extremely high. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hooks [rule] Videos: Here are a couple of vids of my swing. Any suggestions? I have pretty good distance, need to get reliable and consistent. My bad shots are hook. Normal shape slight draw. To me, I look too upright, back not straight (hump behind neck), and swing plane appears upright. In my work clothes, both videos, so not looking very sporty.Lol [VIDEO]https://youtu.be/Ux9CoTquWCM[/VIDEO] [VIDEO]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yWP3l7_ZWKs[/VIDEO]

How was that shot in the down the line video? Comparable to your average shot? To me it looks like a huge pull, at least based on the ball flight:

If your normal ball flight is a draw, it's probably a pull draw, because you're swinging way across the ball from out to in. This might be due to a whole lot of swaying going on in your back swing:

Ideally your left hip should stay on that line or even move slightly ahead of it. Because of this it's very hard for you get your weight forward at impact:

Having your weight back causes you to swing out to in, which can cause snap hooks and all kinds of problems. You should check this out:

I hope it helps.

In the video from the rear, it was a pull. About 30 foot left of aiming point. Straight left. On the sway, should I go to the (swing in a barrel ) routine? Putting rods in the ground on each side, to stop the sway? Thanks, Jack

LL91,

You are correct on that ball flight, in my video.

I was thinking of another video that I didn't use.

In the video above in went out far left and came back to the middle a little bit.

It was a very ugly shot.

Thanks,

Jack

Thanks 14ledo81,

Are you referring to spine angle in the video from the back?

Jack

Yes.

Do a search for the posture thread.

Edit:  Here it is.

Then, I'm not too far, out of whack. I always see the hump on my back and think things are totally messed up. thanks for the help, Jack

iacas, Thanks for the help. I'm going to work on exercises to help my swaying. Maybe I can get an updated video in a week , so that you guys can check my swing for improvement. Thanks for all of your help, Jack
