My Swing (deason)

Hands up adjustments felt pretty darn good tonight, although the video i'm currently uploading only looks minimal, this is a good start.

I felt like I had soooooooooo much more time and club head speed, and also strangely my pivot felt much more stable.

Dan: Bad camera angle and there's an obstruction right where your right elbow goes on the top of your backswing. I think it's a little bit better though. Hard to say with the angle.

Try to keep your right arm straight on the backswing like Erik talked about.

The right elbow will feel as if it's not moving around towards your shirt seam at all and is in fact moving away from your chest a little.

I'm looking forward to some face-on vids on grass later in the week where you are doing the hips forward drill. I noticed you're still hitting that push.

Can't do much about camera angles, it's the best I can do there, I thought i'd upload just for a preview if anyone was interested.

One thing i'll be working on is keep the head still, I tilt it back and then forward with the downswing.

The ball flight and direction for me was 10 times better last night so i'll be working more on the various bits and getting out on the course this weekend I think under a bit of preassure.

I skimmed the video only, but I really like your first practice swing and the position you've paused in at the top of the backswing (first few seconds - before you step behind the railing). It looks like you adopt your normal swing right away though, which I assume is normal for anyone. I also like that thing you're working on just after the 3-minute mark with your hip slide to the left. Sounds like you have some things to work on insofar as "feelings" and drills are concerned. They may take a few sessions to get a speed though. Good luck!

Yeah, that first practice swing is really what you should be going for. Try to replicate that. Relax a little more. Getting better though for sure.

The camera is way too far to the right. Read this thread over why it's important to position the camera correctly.

You need to exaggerate the backswing stuff more. Feel like the right arm is staying straight the whole time on your backswing.

Also, two of your three priorities require a face-on view in order to check (hips forward, handle forward)

Agree, and I'd wager your left knee, left hip are moving too far the the right.  Going back to what Erik said about feeling pressure into your left foot.  Keep the left knee more centered, not turing it back.  Will help you stay more centered, hit the ball more solid and start getting the weight and hips more forward at impact/followthrough

Guys, can't do much about filming in the range, it was merely a taster to show some feedback.

Main priorities this weekend will include;

  1. Centered pivot
  2. Higher top of swing
  3. Hips
  4. Left foot to be angled slightly

I know my leg movement is poor but I can't work out why! I mean I work hard down the gym on stability, hell more than some "athletes" i've seen with stable lower bodies... :)

Don't forget "handle forward" too.

No smiley? Really? :)

One thing at a time man. Two if you try really hard, like "weight forward, hips forward" or something. Or "pressure left, hips slide."

Haha, I forgot to use my smilies I still want him to do the weight forward drill, which would eliminate thinking about his hips (both getting forward on the downswing and swaying back on the backswing) for now and would get him to feel what impact is supposed to feel like. At least in theory. But if you don't think that's the best course of action, then I yield.

But with the weight forward drill he can just work on a straighter right arm going back and palmar flexion coming down. It's very possible though that drill is too frustrating to learn by yourself, in which case I understand how much we have to slow the learning process down when helping someone through the internet.

Looks good. You're hitting some pulls at the start there then seem to find a groove. Not there yet (are any of us, really?) but it sure looks like you're not shying away from hard work. Ball flight on the good swings is pretty consistent, especially so considering all the things you're working on. Persinally I think that's pretty important since you're still playing rounds.

The following is purely guesswork based on where [I think] my shots would be missing with your plane and path.  With a very flat swing, ball position is even more important since the face travels on the target line (assuming you're not trying to work the ball like Bubba) for a shorter distance. Ballo too far ahead and you really have to reach for the ball and the tendency is to come across it.

The camera angle is what it is, but it's in real time at normal speed so there's a few things to see. The ball is really zipping out there on a few shots based on how long you're waiting for them to land, and your gaze seems to be pretty much straight away. Considering how many things you have on your to do list, that swing at ~2:55 is gold. Do more of that and you're laughing!!

I've been Playing Golf for: 3-4 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 13

My typical ball flight is: push/cut/slice/fade :)

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: high balloon cut

Im trying to keep more centered over the ball and more 40-50 to help get my weight shifted...im struggling to get the hips and tilt in though which is frustrating as it steepens everything.

    • Exactly my point. You're choosing to exclude a brand of product that you admit makes a good product simply on the off chance you don't like the clubs that the resale value is going to be lower than you feel it should be. While you're obviously entitled to do so, I don't think that is a good reason to exclude a company and not even consider them when making future purchases. We aren't talking about a car or something here, we are talking about a couple hundred bucks at the most, and that's only on the off chance that you don't like the clubs. Out of curiosity, which irons are you referring to and how much did you pay for them in 2011?
    • I recently had a tournament and a friend's event all outside in 85+ deg and 90% humidity. The keys for me were to Cooling towel, water, Gatorade, good food (turkey sandwich and banana) and an umbrella. Use all of these early and often. Also if you are walking go at your pace, don't rush to keep up. Take a few extra seconds to catch your breath, wrap your head or get some water.   Finally, I found that taking my hat off in the shade and using some cool water was a big help.   Good luck
    • So Mr. 202 has been looping for Matt Every. Not a star, but a guy that has had some success. He has two career wins and had a second-place finish and a third earlier this year. But ... Now Matt has to answer questions about his idiot caddie and he's missed the cut three of the last four tournaments.  Trey better hope that Matt really likes him.
    • Not to me. If person buys a new set of irons in the spring, only to find out that he hates them in the fall, he will then take a big hit to make a change. My Pings are from 2011 and they are still worth half of what I paid for them. My son plays TM and loves them. They do make a good product, just too many changes.
    • It's been over a month since I started experiencing a sharp pain in my chest and armpit area in my lead side from apparent overuse. I am guilty on numerous occasions of reaching for the large bucket at the driving range, sometimes even twice in one session, and just overall engaging in very fast paced, frustration-filled practice sessions. I've tried everything from the RICE method in the early stages of the injury (rest, ice, compression and elevation), visited a sports specialist orthopedic who pretty much just confirmed my own self diagnosis of an intercostal muscle strain from overuse and advised that with these types of injuries there isn't much that can be done other than give it time and ease back into normal activity over time. Very eager to continue playing and practicing, being that it's mid-season here in the northeast, I tried playing again just a week after initial injury and seemed to have set myself back. I then gave myself more rest time, about three weeks to be exact of not swinging a club, and started incorporating stretches and light weight training to help with the rehab. I've since played about three rounds and hit the driving range on one occasion but continue to experience pain. While not as extreme as how it felt when I first injured myself, I'm frustrated with the lack of progress. Definitely thought I would be good by now. Now I've totally learned my lesson and realized what not to do in the future and even improved my swing substantially so that it's smoother and less violent from reading several books (Hogan, Penick) and practicing my slow swings without a club in front of the mirror. What I am curious to know is if anyone has experienced a similar golf injury and managed to successfully treat it and get back on the course pain free, and of course how long did it take...
