That's good. Next time include the whole of your legs.

I knew you were going to say that . . I just put my phone on the window sill in my still empty office .. next time I'll scrounge up a few boxes to prop it on. 

It was definitely an eye opener last night when I did it for the first time . .in my new, uber-dark garage there was still enough light to realize that I couldn't do this without moving my head a lot.  I thought about it some and I see if I do it differently I can do it somewhat better . . .as in the current video...I think I understand the idea enough to keep working on it until I figure out how to do it quite a bit better than I just did now . . maybe not awesome .. but definitely better. 

 

edit - thanks!

I love your pajama outfit, you fit right in at a Dead show parking lot =). Whats most obvious to me is your issue with marrying the shoulder turn and body rotation. What should help you is working on getting better weight transfer to n fro. And a better understanding of how the upper body should be bending in the BS and DS. Below are 2 videos that to explain visually and drills. There are a ton of videos out there discussing these ideas so search the net and find more and you will see.

Anyway - I will practice this and I think I can do better . .here's what I can do right now. 

Nice job with the backswing. Probably going to feel like the lower body is a lot more involved.

On the followthrough squeeze the thighs together.

I tend to hit a "high floater" . .I'd like to bring it down.

Have you played with trying to bow your lead wrist through impact at all?

Not really - I've never really tried to strengthen my grip or do anything with my lead wrist except flatten it at the top and rotate them through impact.  Lately I haven't been working on much at all - been setting up the new house and yada yada.  I went to the range twice, at least.  I've been working on improving my rotation, without swaying, in the backswing at the same time as trying not to let my right knee get away from me - letting my right knee "get away from me" means a whole bunch of things I'm trying to work out in my head . .not just about my right knee.  It's a lot of Key 1 with a little Key 4 stuff and perhaps a sniff of Key 3.  Don't read too much into the way I describe it.

If he's anything close to a 20… that's one of the last things he should probably worry about.

It's pretty close . .I don't have an actual handicap but based on the course I usually play (rating and slope, etc) - it would probably be around 18.  That's based on playing just a few times a year, though.  I joined a golf league for this year to force myself to play more so I can get an accurate measure . .so we'll see.

Please keep working on your priority piece… and please don't remove videos when you post them here. It screws up prior posts, and discourages people from wanting to help you.
