@DaveP043, I've seen your basement, your Golf IQ is pretty high :content:

LOL, I'm not so sure about that, I'm not sure that the ability to buy stuff coincides with any kind of IQ.  It definitely shows an interest, and an amazing degree of tolerance on the part of my wife.

Be the chicken now that's a steady head

Compared to what @woodzie264? 6 months - It looks pretty damn good to me. Nice work.  That is not an easy fix...actually nothing about changing your swing is easy. Well done. 

It might help to think of holding the grip like you would a briefcase. You wrap your hand around the handle just enough so the weight is cradled in the fingers and then you close your hand. You wouldn

@iacas, focused on keeping head steadier (with less downward/forward movement), while pushing right hip away from the wall

@GolfLug, I focused on, and felt, more weight to inside of my right foot while maintaining more flex in right knee.

critiques? I want to get some reps in, but I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.  You know it's a bad start when you need repeated correction on the drill meant to correct the swing flaw! :8)

 

There you go.. much much better.

Anyway, any time your head starts bobbing up and down, it should be a que that you are not rotating.

3/07/17 - priority piece: centered hip turn

I see my left elbow bends during backswing here, but I've been working on a more centered hip turn with less lateral movement

i am working on the same aspect of the swing.   Do what you can to shorten your swing on the backswing. The longer the arm swing the more chance your will have of the arms continuing past the shoulder turn. This will cause you to sway as well. Swinging the club to 10-2 on a clock face help with the feeling. 

It looks like that the wall drill has improved your sway. Keep up the good work. Improving is a never ending process.

Thanks for the feedback. I definitely feel like I try to take a bigger backswing than what is comfortable. I'll try taking a 10 o'clock backswing to see if that helps

You may have to exaggerate the movement to actually get it to show in a video. If the feeling of 10 o'clock is causing you to still go to far then go to 9 or earlier. 

I do want to preface all of my tips with do what works for you. Everyone is different. Don't stray to far from your priority piece. Keep working on the hip turn until one of the pro's on here has you move on from it.

Thanks - yeah, I wasn't going to change my priority piece until given permission :-)

Today at range: less lateral motion, less head bob than yesterday. Still not great, but improving...I think. I know this angle isn't perfect, but I was only posting this for showing some improvements, not for further eval. I will post again next week after more wall drills

I could be wrong but i thought the point of the wall drill was to get the hips away from the wall laterally. Creating a spinal tilt and the like.  "Toward target" "bumping foward" etc.  You look much steadier but still look like your are "turning in a barrel", maybe @iacas could clear up.

you are right - the fact I'm no longer swaying back is progress. In one of my videos, Erik told me not to move my head forward, so I'm working on "pressing my right hip away from the wall" while not moving my head forward...this is my struggle. Thanks for noticing - I appreciate it

I second this, I have the same problem with swaying and head dipping at the top of the backswing. I finally figured out that I do this because I try to rotate my shoulders past 90*, you're doing the same thing. 

This is also a good drill that helped me with swaying.

Still a little sway in the last swing video there, no?

I'd keep working on this. Gonna be your priority piece for a little while…

Got it-  until you say otherwise

    • Thanks. It’s because I have old knees!😜
    • I get it. It’s honestly not so much impatience as it is with confusion as to where I need to be at the end of a movement. So that’s helpful. Indeed. I think the first 13 pages of MySwing thread is nothing but the wall drill 😜
    • @boogielicious the old school knee action in your shallowing rehearsal from A4 to A5 is awesome! I think it does wonders for the turn rates Jon, the wall drill is great. It will help shallow out the club down to A5. When done right I have noticed a feel that my right thigh/pocket moves into impact with right forearm in sync.
    • Be patient. It takes time. Sometimes when we fix one thing, something else gets off a bit. I can tell now when I early extend by just how the ball strike feels and ball curves. I just haven’t completely changed the picture yet.
    • @boogielicious, thanks man. That’s helpful. I feel like I don’t know what to do next from the top position since all of my PPs have been in the backswing from A1-A4 (since we literally had to start from scratch at my grip), so that gives me some direction. I appreciate that.     I’m not saying I’m ready to graduate to next PP yet, but it gives me direction
