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 don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.  
    • Day 15.  After work, hit 8- and 6-iron shots for ten minutes (and about as many balls).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls. 
    • I'll keep that in mind, my Snells are also made in Massachusetts. But mine listened to me yesterday, sometimes.  I got fed up with a bad shot and it wasn't listening, so I told it to keep hooking and roll into the rough.  And it did! 
    • Their shipping charges are out of this world...I was going to order a 0211 wedge and shipping was $30.00..After deciding to get a lob wedge to match, the shipping changed tp $60.00 I just refuse to do that.... I can get a real good price on the 0211 driver
