Setup and backswing can be better.

are you wanting me to play the ball further back in my stance? Is that why my upper half is set up angled that way?

Nevermind...I'll check out the set up thread

Your hips are back and your head is forward at setup. Then you move your head even further forward during the backswing.

Red = bad, green = good.

I think I get it - I will find a good example and try to reproduce it. Thanks for quick response

working on:

1. new set up (hip forward, head back, better spine axis)

2. with centered hip turn - admittedly this feels awkward, and it really sucks for now...but it'll get better I'm sure. 

(yes, I know I come over the top on my DTL view :8))

I feel like my head is still moving forward with the initiation of the down swing...yes?

I hope to get out to the range tomorrow (if they aren't closed because of the winter storm) so that I can take better videos with more space...

In what way?

I feel I'm creating a slew of other issues. Maybe I'm not...I understand the necessity of change in order to improve. I recognize I need to be patient. I just feel I'm sliding backwards...which perhaps right where I need to be?

I don't really understand that.

IMO this is your priority, so you work on this. This piece is getting better yes?

 I think so. I'm not questioning the process... just frustrated that I haven't gotten it by now. And when I watch my efforts on video, it looks ugly. 

I will get it...

in the video from yesterday, I see my head continuing to dip down with initiation of downswing and my hips STILL do not rotate as much as I think they should...but I'm no expert and am only speculating. I'll keep at it.

Here's an idea for you (with all the caveats cuz you know where I'm at as a golfer).

When I start to transition from conscious incompetence to conscious competence on something, it can often come by breaking through the awkwardness of the feel by pretending I'm in one of the Peter Kostas super slow mo videos.

I'll video myself going painfully slow and making sure things are smooth and athletic - not mechanical in any way. The key is to be like the most incredibly flexible, relaxed, and pure form that you can totally fake at that speed. Cuz let's face it, when we are learning a movement, we hafta fake it a bit first.  

Find some pro whose hip turn matches all the criteria you're looking for and watch how smooth it transitions from turning around to bumping forward to turning back through. Focus on just that. Smooth, and almost effortless- even if at 1/10 speed or something. For my hip turn (not that I'm perfect), I did and still do a lot of that with my arms crossed in front of me. 

I'll do corny stuff like that, and eventually it breaks down my bad form, and the good form starts to creep into my swing.

Anyway, just trying to share some of the craziness that seems to help me. I've a long winter of this stuff, and I am getting familiar now with the process of breaking old physical habits. Not easy.

Thanks @RandallT - I actually think my wall drill with arms crossed looks pretty good....it just gets awkward once I put a club in my hand. I will go slower - thanks!

    • Great advice Dave Thanks! Once I get done building our house, our next overseas golf trip is planned to be this area and I never thought of arriving anywhere but Dublin, my ignorance. Mahalo!
    • Day 23: Mirror work today. Still working on set up - knees bent and hips over my heels. 
    • Hey folks I run a golf group that needs a new name.  I want to expand it to other markets, but our old name is trademarked and the guy who owns the trademark won't budge on it.   We started as Winnipeg Beginner Golf - this scared away more experienced golfers and scared courses when we booked tee times Then we became Winnipeg Not So Pro Golf - Great name but trademarked apparently Now we want to start doing tournaments and so need a new name.  We have settled on Shoot for Par as the first part but need to know if its worth adding something on the back end like am golf tour or otherwise.   Mediocre Golf Association beat me to it with a great name so here we are.  Here's our mission what would you call the organization if it used the words Shoot For Par in the title.   Our mission is to provide tournament & casual round experiences for amateur golfers of all genders and ability levels, guided by a commitment to giving back to the community, building camaraderie and encouraging lifelong health and wellness.
