I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 73 (I don't keep a solid handicap - making it a goal to get better about this in 2016)
My typical ball flight is: my natural flight is a fade, but I most commonly will play a small draw (2-5 yards max).
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I cannot stand it when I hit spinning pull fades!!! 

Sorry this isn't in slow motion, I had some encoding issues getting the file to Vimeo in slo-mo :(  

I take lessons from a swing coach where I live, but definitely open to suggestion with that slight over the top motion that I've got.  My body just loves to move left too soon... (especially under the gun)

Nice looking range!

I'd recommend allowing the left shoulder to work downward longer on the backswing. Will help you keep your head and hips from drifting to the right and reduce/eliminate those spinny fades.

Ok so analysing a swing like this certainly gets beyond my pay grade,especially with someone who I believe does swing analysis himself.But having said this,the only thing I think I see is a swing that is too long for the shoulder rotation.In other words,the arms keep going when the shoulders have stopped turning.

Sorry for such a late response, but yes, the shoulders are a KILLER for me sometimes!  

I always have to remind myself to turn the shoulders rather than complete the swing by making my hands travel further. 

That being said, I also have struggled with reverse pivots, hence that sway (overcorrection) you see in the swing.  Trying to get it a bit more centered now.

    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
    • I guess it's not extremely "unconventional" but I think many parts of the swing goes against some of the more "standard" teachings, or at least what I see on Youtube (forgive me I'm still relatively new to golf). Some of the differences of this upright/2-plane type of swing, according to the Jim Hardy 2-plane swing vs more "standard" golf teachings: Using more of the arms to generate power, rather than the body Having less depth at the top of the backswing Being slightly across-the-line at the top of the backswing Having a more open club face coming down Less body and hip openness at impact Of course not every "upright swinger/2-planer" adopts all of the above, but those are the things that Jim Hardy mentioned in his book and I'm trying to follow it as I don't have any other guide.
