  1. Unfortunately it's my dad taking the video so a better quality one is an almost impossible task. That would be my bad swing when I don't get the weight onto my front foot at the start of the downswing which I always try to do as I know that's been a huge problem of mine. My dad also noticed yesterday mid way through the round that the two best drives I'd had I rolled my left foot in with the heel still on the ground. Most of the other times the left heel was coming up and not always coming back down on the dowswing, certainly at the start which kind of goes with me not getting the weight back accross to the left side.
  2. Ultimately to hit the ball further but after a few health problems and severe weight loss I need to build the general fitness and strength. At times my weight drops to 9st which is shocking for a 6ft bloe albeit a slight build. I've also got nerve damage in my left shoudler/neck that the doctors can do nothing about so there is 3cm muscle wasteage between my left arm and right arm (from wrist to top of the arm). I've also previously slipped a disc on my sciatic nerve so balance is poor too. In general and it's only recent I know but I'v been managing the 5 minutes cardio, weights then repeat two or 3 times ok. I also have the resistance bands too and stretch/neck exercises on a daily basis.
  3. Thank you, thnk I managed it 🙂 I don't think I swing quite like that now and do try to shift the weight more
  4. Hi. I'm struggling a bit with just brushing the ground slightly before the ball with the driver. I don't hit the ball far, probably only averaging 190-200 off the tee which most friends can't understand as they say my swing looks great. I've taken regular lessons over the last few years and at 1 point last year I upped to distance to an average of 230 which I'd be over the moon with now. This cam from the instructor getting me to really fold my left knee in then try and kick it out at the top of the backswing. I've gone back to this and the distance is still 190-200 but generally straight, htting maybe 70+% of fairways. I was out with my dad yesterday and mid way through the round he said the 2 best drives I had hit, I rolled my left foot keeping the heel on the ground; I was never really conscious of lifting my left heel (I did deliberately try this a few times previously) It made sense and felt more comfortable and did hit a couple of better and longer drives the last couple of holes and the irons were definitely better straight away. A bit side tracked maybe but every practice swing with the driver I still brush the ground slightly and more often than not, maybe 90% of the time will catch the ground forst when teeing up properly so just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can stop this and maybe get that extra 20 or 30 yards..... Thanks. I've been Playing Golf for: 15 years My current handicap index or average score is: 14.2 My typical ball flight is: straight high, sometimes slight fade or draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Catching the ground first with the driver Videos:

Can't seem to upload my swing I'm afraid. Thanks.
  6. Thanks, will go there now and check to see if I have my swing on my phone but don't think so.
  7. Hi. I've turned the spare room into a gym since my son moved out and wondered if anyone with far more knowledge than me would be able to come up with an exercise plan for me. I have the following in there:- Ecercise bike, rowing machine, manual treadmill and a weight bench (pic below). Also the wondercore thing for crunches made easy. I'm slowly trying to build up doing 5 minutes cardio then a set of each weights doing ten, then repeat with different cardio, weights etc. Thanks.
