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.

    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
    • The most important thing in table tennis is a rubber, so yes, I agree with that
    • I truly believe you can go through this easily. Maybe after 2 months you`ll change your mind, because you always need to do something that you like, to get better 👍
