  1. Fire hips for me is a pulling sensation with my left hip, towards target and up behind me. Low hands is a swing thought to me as I tend to have high hands leading to thin shots
  2. When I lose distance it's because my hands are high (waist height feeling only). On the down swing I get the feeling of dropping my hands about 4 - 6 inches lower, below waist. I get much better strike and distance. Remember this is what I feel and might not be 100% real. Are you adding loft to your club by opening it on back swing? Making you PW more of a LW?
  3. when looking for distance or max out a club, my 2 thoughts are fire the hips and keep my hands low. works for me, might not be for everyone though
  4. looking for some advice here. not exactly sure whats happening but i seem to have developed a sway in the putter head during the stroke. if i line up a series of tees opposite to each other in a line and stroke the putter through them, i crashed into them constantly. it must be something in my set up, any ideas?
  5. can over swinging the club on the back swing have an effect on your transition? i have a fault where i tend to lunge into the ball with my upper body. ive tried loads of drills etc and although it is getting better i still do it a bit. my mate recorded my swing today and i noticed that i take the club too far back and was wondering if this could be the root cause. never reviewed the video until i got home so not had a chance to try anything out. if this is the cause, anyone have any drills or recommendations on shortening the back swing? thanks in advance
  6. Another update. 2 obvious faults are lunging forward a bit (face on), slight early extension (dtl) any tips to avoid would be appreciated
  7. updated using GC2, trackman and 3bays GSA (average carry's). also changed my irons, bit less distance, much more accuracy Driver 242 yards 3 Wood 227 yards 5 wood 218 yards 3 hybrid 195 5 iron 181 6 iron 170 7 iron 153 8 iron 144 9 iron 130 PW 119 AW 50 deg 98 yards LW 54 deg 83 SW 60 deg 75 all swings at reasonable tempo (not trying to kill it). "kill it" distances - take at least 50 yards off each club :-)
  8. simple answer is keep your head behind the ball, loosen your grip and accelerate through the shot
  9. Played a full round on Saturday. Scored 76 on a par 72 and to be honest it could have easily been 72. im blaming the greens for a couple of missed birdie putts within 5 feet and a couple of 3 putts as the greens have been forked and sanded so a bit bumpy. played 9 holes yesterday and was 2 over, same again - 3 putted the first from 8 feet due to bumpy greens. both days my ball striking has been the best its ever been. i go to the range tonight and my ball contact and flight was terrible. anyone else suffer this very quick loss of form??
  10. Like skimming a stone?? I've never done any active release of club, normally let gravity do the work, but suppose I should give it a go
  11. That was my thinking too until earlier. Was browsing golf channel instruction videos, one from Martin hall?? He was promoting it as an active thought or action Confused!!
  12. is the release of a golf club a conscious act or does it happen automatically through a good swing?
  13. a wee update, appologies for the quality as i had to balance my iphone on my golf bag
  14. here you go!! oh and at around 10 mins, question of the week is me!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PwJ-kx1-uI&feature;=g-high-u
