Done! I put 3 videos on YouTube. They are all driver, as that was the only club you were allowed to use on the turf. I forgot to make a DTL video though.

Then paste the URLs so they embed here.

I had to wait until I got to work today.  I couldn't post them with my phone last night. 

 

 

Read the link in Erik's post above yours. You still aren't embedding the videos properly. Just like in golf lessons, you need to follow the instructions. ;-)

@djfajt71

Below is a screenshot of you at setup and at A4, the top of the backswing. First, your stance is a bit wide. I would try bringing your feet a little close together. Second, you are moving back during the backswing. This will cause you to have to move all the way back and more to get your weight forward at impact.

Check out the thread below. I would recommend you work on this as your first priority piece.

I went to download the video so I could mark it up, but found @boogielicious has already done so.

I'd also look at this drill:

It should help quite a bit.

The wide stance gives you the stability you need to sway as much as you do. So yeah, narrow that up considerably and do the wall drill. The other thread, the centered pivot thread, is good too.

    • Thanks a lot I will check that 30 day plan out looks pretty decent.
    • Are the clubs similarly fit?  For example, I could imagine one picking up a well-fit driver and irons that are too short and getting this effect.
    • Welcome to TST, I've had similar issues but only with Driver versus FW Woods. IMO, it might be due to weighting differences of the clubs or shaft flex. Also, I sometimes make a poor swing on irons which may stem from transitions between long and short length clubs mostly with unusual lie or stance. Maybe a change in pre-shot routine of the irons would be beneficial. For longer clubs, I will make a sweeping practice swing. For mid to short irons I try to feel the club bounce and interact with the turf. I also try to concentrate on the swing path, making sure I finish high and at my target  with all clubs.
    • Looking more and more like it'll be early to mid-September according to the New York Times article. F.D.A. Aims to Give Final Approval to Pfizer Vaccine by Early Next Month - The New York Times The Food...  
    • I am having problems transitioning between hitting my Driver and Irons.  When I hit my driver (on the screws) I tend to top  or blade my irons.  When I hit my irons flush, I tend to have issues finding the tee ball with my driver.  Any ideas?
