Some still shots of one recent drive.
I’ve been toying with moving the ball around in my stance.

Things I’ll be doing at the range this week..

1. I’ll move the ball a few inches up in my stance to be closer the left heel.
2. Will slightly narrow my stance to allow for a better finish.
3. Will try to widen the arc (not be as flat as shown) to try and increase CH speed.

Drives were 255-270 last week.

Anything else?

Maybe hit the gym or something, nerd.

Hitting the gym too much has jacked up my swing these last 5 years.

re: Some still shots of one recent drive.
1st put on a glove
2nd you have almost ZERO hip rotation through impact (look at your left hip compared to the tree behind it in frames 3, 4 & 5)
3rd...Get a bigger shirt - Schmedium's are not becoming! LOL

4th you set you wrist very early which is closing your face at the top of your backswing. A lot of manipulation has to be done before contact

5th keep some flex in your right knee in the backswing, it will create more coil in the swing and less rotation of the upper body which you need

No. Never comfortable wearing one.

I’ll take another vid once I’m swinging with the slightly narrower stance.

Probably why I tend to hook the ball.

Will work on this.

re: Some still shots of one recent drive.
Your arms are collapsed at the top; right arm too bent. Probably steep coming down.

Push your hands away from your right ear at the top of the swing. You need width.

Third pic makes me think you are not using the lower body much. Get those thighs and booty in it. I’d bet you hit it further.

The left arm isn’t too far from being completely straight. Break in the elbow in college has lead to some arthritis and limits complete extension.

Swing is flat which is why the hands appear low but part of the range this week will try to widen the arc.

You know he only wears shmediums! Have you seen the jersey he wears on game day? I think he beat up a 9 year old and took it off him

That shirt is a 44!

It’s just happens to be designed for someone on the field wearing shoulder pads.

Is that an ankle monitor? Did your parole officer approve this trip to the course?

re: Some still shots of one recent drive.
2 things that I'd like to see you do:

1. Move your ball position a little toward your left heel. (this could also be camera angle, you may have it up there)

2. Stand a little closer to it. This is the reason your flat. You'll feel like your on top of it but what it will allow you to do is swing more down the line to inside as opposed to out and to the right. This will help with the hook.

Golf is a game of opposites. Hit down to make the ball go up. Swing left to make it go straight or cut. Swing right to make it go left, etc.

You make a good athletic move at it. Someone like you is easy to fix. Move closer in small increments. It's going to feel horrible at first so take it easy.

No, it was back. I'm moving it forward a little now.

re: Some still shots of one recent drive.
Looks like you’re releasing your lag a little too early...your right hand is fully released at pic #4 compared to where this club is at fully released.




Same guy, but with an iron at impact position...notice the lag in his right hand to help compress the ball.
