Looking better. Does it look like that with a ball?

Thanks. It's still very much conscious effort with regards to not dipping my head during the turn (which I still do, even in the most recent video). 

Yes - but I get your point. I rarely get to the range (1-2/month), but I'll video the next time I go.

6/14/17   Centered hip turn

I was wearing sandals today and this was in impromptu range session, forgive me being barefooted.

I'd work on two things IF the centered pivot stuff is working without having to think about it too much…

Set up with the handle a bit lower, and get your finger off the shaft (extended down the shaft).

Try to turn through keeping your head and left hip/butt closer to their respective "walls".

These don't need to be perfect, some EE is fine… but you likely have a bit more than you want.

Thanks, @iacas. I do feel like the turn itself is becoming subconscious so I hope to make some improvements on your new recommendations. 

I knew the finger down the shaft would get addressed...I've recently revisited that after having a couple of bad rounds because that seems helps my timing at impact (thus my accuracy), but I will certainly get away from that

Is there something I'm doing in my set up that is causing me to EE (not sure what that means, but I think it means that I'm coming off my walls) or is it just a swing tendency independent of my set up?

No. Just something you have to work on.

After a few months off from a shoulder replacement, I've played a couple of 9-hole rounds (with abbreviated swings) and am ready to resume my swing improvements.

I have put up a 10'x15' net in my back yard and am excited about the prospect of getting better. I hope to have a video up by the end of the week.

It's nice to be back.

I have regressed regarding the centered turn and still suck with maintaining my walls :8), but I wanted to post something by the end of the week and I'm a man of my word:

I see my swing is steeper in the last video than in previous ones :cry:

I know the feeling of working on one thing and other things leaking! I know you're working the centered hip portion, so it's probably ok that you're getting a little steeper, as you can work on that another time.

As for the centered turn, I'm seeing in the DTL view that your head is dipping on your backswing, and you move closer to the ball:

Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 10.22.29 PM.pngScreen Shot 2017-10-17 at 10.22.48 PM.png

When I work on my centered turn, I think of my upper torso as staying fairly stable (both forward/back and up/down), which mostly leads to my head staying somewhat where it is. I like to think of my shoulders as rotation around that upper torso. Just thought I'd throw out a feel that seems to work for me.

Another feel: I've tried to go right from address to a good impact position, checking that my head doesn't move too far in any direction. If the impact head position feels good, and it mostly matches my address position, then it stands to reason that my head should be relatively in the same place at the top of the backswing than it was when I go from address directly to impact. Therefore, in the photos above, one of the two can't match the impact position (since they're so different). I think if you look closely at impact of your DTL video, your head actually goes back closer to where it started at address. So the movement toward the ball at the top of the backswing is likely extraneous.

Just my two cents. Hang in there and good luck sticking with it. I'll join you again in the practice challenge thread, I promise!

Thanks! Duly noted. I gave it whirl with your thoughts of turning around my torso. I can tell that I'm still bobbing, but I hope it's improved. Good or bad, I definitely felt "stiffer" through my swing.

I can't figure out how to create the video combining normal speed and slow motion videos anymore on Youtube...something must have changed.

still a lot of improvement to be had for sure. Who knew keeping my freaking head still would take forever

3/24/18 - sooooo, it's been quite a while since I've posted a swing...largely because I feel as though I'm making little progress. But, now that's it's warming up a bit, I figured I'd put up the net and hit a few. I'm using a wedge today, so my swing is a bit steeper as compared to others in this thread. I realize my wrist is cupped and I have a lot of flaws, but my priority piece is still Centered Turn with Steady Head. I think my turn was getting better, but then @iacas challenged me to not dip my head during the downswing and this is where I feel I'm making little progress. For some reason, I'm not seeing a way to combine the full speed and slow mo clips together on Youtube like I have done in the past, so they are presented separately:

Full speed

Slow

Full speed

Slow motion

soooo, it's been nearly 2 yrs since posting a swing. I haven't played a great deal and really haven't been working on my swing much - just going out and playing when I have time. Last I posted, @iacas had me working on steady head with centered hip turn. I believe I was cupping my left wrist and was looking at working on that as well.

    • I mentioned Radovich vs NFL - Radovich seeking compensation after having joined another league and was forever banned from the NFL in any form, even later in life trying to join as a coach or something. SC sides with Radovich The article I linked mentions the fairly recent NCAA vs Alston - on restricting college player compensation: "the NCAA is acting in violation Section 1 of the Sherman Act, which prohibits any “contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce.”"   NCAA v. Alston: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning? In its unanimous 9-0 decision in NCAA v. Alston, the Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that struck down NCAA caps on student-athlete academic... How about LA Colliseum vs NFL, when the raiders were blocked from moving to LA in the 80s due to a rule that required 3/4 vote of teams in the NFL. LA Colliseum wins saying rule was violating Sherman Anti Trust There are dozens more.   The common thing here to me is that, it doesn't matter if there is a "rule" even if it was agreed to if the rule is illegal.
    • You aren't saying anything unreasonable. For some reason this is a very emotionally charged topic and it brings out people who want things to be a certain way regardless of the law.  Five minutes on Google reading law blogs shows the players have at least pretty good anti-trust case.   The Supreme Court ruled against the NFL in the 1950s,  when they blacklisted players who played in a rival league.  The PGA Tour colluding with the European Tour, World Golf Rankings, the entities that organize majors and Ryder Cup and potentially going against their charter as a non-profit are all going to be brought up.  I am sure the PGA Tour has consulted with lawyers and will have counterpoints. A lot of it will probably depend on judges. I would guess the current administration would be more amenable to the player's suit than most as they are already pursuing companies over non-competes and collusion. You shouldn't even need Google for at least one example.  Trump and the USFL vs the NFL.  They won but weren't awarded damages. Otherwise you could Google and find this case as the first thing listed. Radovich v. National Football League :: 352 U.S. 445 (1957) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center Radovich v. National Football League  
    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.
