  1. Thanks very much Mike! I worked on this drill today. I also realized that I tended to come up/get out of posture in my downswing, so I need to work on swinging with the body and keeping arms passive. Is the right feeling such that you are squatting into the downswing, and swinging left with the pelvis? That is what I am feeling.
  2. I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: 105 My typical ball flight is: draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: push New to posting on this forum but have been avidly following this forum for some time! This is my first year playing golf, and I am absolutely obsessed. Aside from not being able to put the golf club down (I even swing at home), I love to read about technique and watch hours and hours of instructional videos. This has been a fantastic forum to read! Lately, I've been working on a revamp of my swing -- given this is my first season, I've realized my swing has had a lot of faults. So these were the things I tried to work on: 1) shallowing of club on downswing -- this was difficult to practice and I've been swinging thousands of repetitions without the ball and doing pause swings 2) initiating downswing with lower body and with left shoulder separating from chin; trying to swing left instead of flipping the club 3) flattening my wrists at top of backswing and aiming to get it flat upon impact aka best attempt at Hogan supination and trying to pivot with body I would greatly appreciate some comments and advice on my video below. There are 4 swings in total -- the first 2 are without the ball, and last two (starting at 2:30) are with the ball. My problem / question is --- I'm pretty happy with how my 2 no-ball swings look (minus fact that club is slightly across line at top); the club shaft shallows, and I get enough lag so that my club returns to the original takeaway at address (0:13 and 1:15). HOWEVER, once I have a ball on the ground, I feel that my downswing disintegrates and my form falls apart. I can't quite detect what is happening here. If you look at the last 2 swings with the ball, it seems that I am either not clearing my left hips enough, or perhaps early releasing -- I don't have the lag as much as I do in the first two swings, and the 'triangle' formed at the bottom of the downswing before impact has shrunk (see 2:41 and 4:38) My path also looks much more 'inside' than before; my arms seem to be much closer to my body. Any advice please? Thank you. Videos:
