  1. For the DTL shots film along the toe line not between the toes and the ball.
  2. to me, the images represent many significant differences that total fairly big changes. I'll have to watch the videos to see the differences and see if his hands work for effectively through the impact zone.
  3. I was just surprised to see so much change so quickly in my P6 view of the swing. Great job ! I figured my MS paint work would get me a reply. People rarely can change their P6 so quickly. You must be a golf expert ! I was also wondering if the new swing felt alot different. Crisper ?
  4. Love the improvements. "What did you change" ? Love the improvements. "What did you change" ?
  5. How about some Rear Views ?
  6. You really suck the club in early and under plane. Stance is too wide ! Only 2 bits for now ... gotta work ! Very little wrist hinge very late in the swing !
  7. Typical EE swing. look how much closer to the ball and higher the hands are at impact vs address. No face on ?
  8. A wise man once said, you have to lose flex in your rear leg in the backswing. I dont think you do.
  9. Cool rear view. I like how it picks both heels off the ground as you really try to hit it hard. I know the trend over the last decade is to not comment on grips ... strong grips are allowed now. But that left hand seems really really strong.
  10. Less flex in the knees at setup is a great tip. I think reducing the knee flex will encourage a better hip turn. I wonder if the left knee traveled more towards the ball target line (versus parallel to it) during the backswing (especially during the takeaway) ... would that allow the right leg to straighten a bit more and have the hips and shoulders be a bit more on a more vertical plane). I like my hip turn when I get things going in the right direction from the beginning. I started this as an anti-sway move. The initial move of the left knee is to bend (knee cap moves directly towards the ball target line) and the right leg is to straighten (move your right hip directly AWAY from the ball target line). My backswing swing is thinking of these two things while keeping my spine angled away from the target (whereas yours tilts towards the target). A6 analysis: Your hands are high indicating you are coming in steep. The green line is the height of the end of your grip at address. I manually put in all the photos to see if it can help me Try my hip motion tips and see how they feel. It really helps with a centred pivot body swing. FWIW, your knees control the hip motion ... or at least that's how I see it.
  11. https://www.pgatour.com/competition/2017/farmers-insurance-open/leaderboard.html (2017) https://www.pgatour.com/competition/2018/farmers-insurance-open/leaderboard.html (this year). He does hold the course record 72-HOLE RECORD: 266, George Burns (1987), Tiger Woods (1999). I hope he does well but I think it's a MC this week.
  12. At A4 (top of swing), your right hip has moved ALOT targetwards. Which normally is good. But this might be a bit much. I think the earlier your BEND the left knee towards the ball target line (not allowing the left knee to drift laterally ) it will help things. Above all ... upload proper footage !
  13. Try uploading driver swings to see the hips better. FO and DTL. YouTube of course. Your head dip early in the backswing seems alot. Is your weight too much on your toes ? I see sync issues ... where your takeaway is too much hands and arms. You made lots of progress from 2012 to 2014 ! To feel the hips move properly ... you might need a better setup. I think your left knee moves laterally (parallel to ball target line) too much and doesn't BEND enough (move towards the ball target line). But to maximize feeling the hips, try being more active with: setup normally and drop the club. Put your left hand on your knee. Bend the knee (knee cap move directly towards the ball target line) ... try this while straightening the right leg. Get the feeling. The setup again, drop the club and put your right hand on the front of your hip. Remember, the goal is to move your right hip AWAY from the ball target line. It really shouldnt move laterally AT ALL. Lateral sway is just a liability. Getting these two things started together (left knee bend, right leg straightening) early sets your hips on a different trajectory. Being able to see the knees (shorts) helps analyze the hips.
  14. Not the best camera angle. Try to keep the camera pointed parallel to the ground, not pointing into the ground. and you should be filming along the toe line. If the filmer wants to see you in the shot as they take it they have to: - kneel or sit on their bum and film from 10 feet behind. - or be 15 feet back and keep the camera at their belly button. - a tripod is better than a person everytime. To me, your setup encourages a flat inside takeaway. You are reaching quite a bit for the ball, as seen by the distance between your right thigh and your hands. This encourages the swing to go around the body (less up and down). Add to that your handsy takeaway where you pull the clubhead in early and hard and it gets you "too inside" "under plane". ... which causes the across the line look at A4 (top of swing). I'd work on setup and takeaway.
