    Default NSA Swing Help

    Hello

    I am getting back into golf after a break. I have had mixed results over the past two month, so I reviewed the NSA 2.0 pattern video. This pattern fixed my slice years ago!!

    I went to the range and noticed an immediate increase in distance with my irons. I still missed some shots right but not very bad. If I did too much twistaway I could easily hook the ball.

    It was an adjustment going to the neutral grip, as I have moved to a stronger grip over the past year. I also tried to keep the grip at a 90 degree angle to my last three fingers.

    Here are two swings from yesterday. The first (push slice) is earlier in the practice session, and the second (straight) was the last shot.

    It appears to me I have very little hip turn. I have battled a flat swing with little hip turn for a long time!

    Does anyone have a drill for more hip turn?

    I also have the softdraw pattern if that would be a better pattern for me.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Also can I post this on Golfwiseguys or are most of the members on both forums??

    You need to lay the club down more on the downswing.

    Try swinging "under the stick."

    lay it down a little like this, maybe?
    If I grip it strong and hit it long is that wrong?

    Look I will stab you, I wont kill you but I will stab you!

    BTW, I NEVER USE 'bag on the tush line."

    Kirk doesn't look like he lays it down at all. In fact it looks like it is steeper coming down. This is laying down, and hopefully Shields sees this so he can crank one out:

    The IDEA behind swing under a stick—an idea that can be traced to Davis Love Jr.—is the club BETTER lay off earlier.
