I've only been playing golf for 2 years but fell in love with the game from the beginning and have put in over 550 hours of practice and many lessons. My goal is to have a fundamental and consistent golf swing. I shoot in the low 90s. My short game is pretty good, but I gain a lot of extra strokes getting to the green, especially off the tee.

I know that I take the club to the inside during the takeaway and I hate it. I then come over the top of that plane in the downswing. My current goal is to be on plane during the takeaway. Because of the inside takeaway, I think I also get stuck on the downswing. Advice would be excellent!

I've been Playing Golf for: 2 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 19
My typical ball flight is: Slight draw on good shots
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Block/push to the right

Thanks for posting @Brian B.

It looks like you are a bit over-the-top in the downswing. There are a few causes for this, but I think one think you should work on is getting your weight going more forward at impact. I've had this issue on and off. The first step in the backswing. Check out this thread below. One thing that really helps is flaring your feet a bit in your stance.

Next, check out the Key 2 Weight Forward videos in this thread.

Remember to practice smart and don't just hit ball after ball. The thread below talks about how to practice. 

Lastly, post video of your practice drills including just the backswings. I really helps if you are doing them correctly and folks will help you if you post them. Don't worry if the drills look goofy to you.

Thank you so much boogielicious! I watched the videos you recommended and did some of the drills. I went to the range today for a few hours and noticed big improvements. The club is going back on plane when I rotate my hip behind me vs a slide. I'll post some more videos of the drills and practice. Very excited to continue training.

    • I don't tweet much, although I do have an account for following other people, including Erik. I think the key will be stokes gained approach.
    • Matt, good stuff lately. 
    • For me, this highlights the 2019 rule change that no longer limits this type of penalty to 4 strokes (or the error/mistake being active for 2 holes), but instead carries on, per hole, until the problem is corrected.  That is something I just learned now, so thanks, I guess? FWIW, this means that if you forget a 15th club in your bag and play the whole round with it, you need to add a cool 36 strokes to your (let's call it not great to begin with) 95, to end up with an absurdly high smooth 131!  Wow.  The only silver lining I see is that since you get to only record a net double for handicap purposes, that round may end up being recorded with ESC as a 104 instead...  🙂
    • Day Eighteen, June 12, 2021. Played 18 today. First ever bogey free round. 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 16 pars, 68.
    • I don’t see why the PGA/LPGA/Champions don’t play a mixed tournament from 3 different tees. Each tour competing against itself, but playing a 3-some, one person from each.  I think it’d be one hell of a tournament with something for everyone.
