It's really tough to say without high speed, particularly since… you shoot 105 with that action?!?!

Your swing doesn't have any glaring faults, which is why high speed video becomes almost "necessary."

To be honest, the 105 is an average over the last 17 months I have been playing. I would say my last couple of rounds have been mid to high 90.

 

Here are the same video's slowed down using iMovie:

I can go frame-by-frame in Analyzr, it's not that… it's that slow motion gives you 4 to 8 times as many frames. 240 FPS.

To be honest that looks like a much better swing than your scores suggest. What do you think causes the scores?

Thanks.

I'd work on two things right now. One's a backswing thing, so you can make a few rehearsals and work on this for three balls, and then do the other for two or three balls as it is a downswing piece.

1: Get a bit more turn out of your backswing.

Put a club across your shoulders and learn what it feels like to turn to the top. You use a bit too much "arms" and not enough "pivot."

2. Transfer forward on the downswing.

Learn to bump or slide the hips forward, to "squish the ketchup packet" under your left foot, in transition and throughout the downswing.

You're relatively flat-footed with very little extra weight/pressure forward at impact.

See Key #2 for more here.

Thanks for the feedback Erik! Are there any drills in particular you would recommend for these areas?

Honestly I don't have a good answer. I don't think my contact is all that great. I think practicing on mats lets me get away with a lot of poor shots. I struggle with bottoming out after the ball/compressing this ball. So a lot of my miss hits are typically ground, then ball and come up fat and short.

I was able to get out and get 9 in today. I tried to really focus on that bumping the hip at the transition to start the down swing, and it seemed to do wonders for my iron/wedge play. Much easier to get the club bottoming out ahead of the ball. I think most of my off target shots were due to alignment. However, I noticed when trying to do it for my driver, I was hitting these HUGE banana slices. Is the hip bump movement something a little different when it comes to the driver/fairway metal?

You need to work/practice much more before you "try" it on the course, per se.

You were probably doing something different, but I don't know about whether the hips were actually doing that and that it was causing the path to be so far out to in that you got huge slices.
