    Default Swing Help - I think I need more tumble? Thoughts?

    Hello,

    Sorry if we are not allowed to post video's anymore, if not, please delete.

    These are a few random swings from today. My game has gone severely south the last few years, mostly from lack of playing (I hope). My miss is a hook, and my ball flight has gotten lower and lower over the years. HELP!

    I looks to me as if my hand path is to horizontal (hands move towards target-line/ball) and my left arm gets too far away from my body before impact, and then I stall my body and slap with my hands.

    I think I need to move my hands more vertical on the start, more of a tumble of the club.

    But I would love everyone's input.

    From what I see and remember it's a 2d video and with that comes all the problems of 2d land etc. anyways I believe your body is out ahead of your arms on the d.s. also in the b.s you have very little right hip rotation and that leads to no room on the d.s. for your arms/hands to get a path through this is compounded by the lower body getting ahead and leaving the arms behind.

    I believe you need more right hip rotation in the b.s. and a feeling of the right arm straightening before the body takes off. Someone can probably explain it better, but that's my 2 cents. Basically you're out of sync the arms are left behind and stuck while the body is stalling to wait for them to catch up because the body is ahead too soon /too quickly. If that makes sense to you.

    I would speed up my arms. All this on the proper path... not too vertical!

    I definitely agree about the body being to far ahead of my arms and out-racing then, causing my body to stall.

    I have never thought about my right hip rotation being too little. I have always been told and thought I had too much? Something I will play around with.

    I need to figure out how to speed up my arms without handle dragging, whenever I have tried to speed up my arms I seem to just pull the grip end of the club faster and drag.

    Thanks for the input.

    If you feel like the trail arm is straightening sooner/faster you won't pull on the grip end and handle drag. The move is more of the tricep doing the work not the hands yanking on the grip when you yank on the grip without straightening the trail arm...that's when the problem arises, because then you usually get too much trail side tilting too early especially if one is worried about "the amount of lag" and then you get underplane. Right shoulder gets too vertical etc. and you back up under it..if you know what I mean... I think you know what I'm saying. Also you don't get the tumble that you need when you need it.

    I think you can see that in your driver video. Anyways good luck with it

    That make's a lot of sense. I'm going to hit some balls soon and try to feel the right arm straightening and less left arm pull.

    I've always been left arm dominant in my swing, I feel with my left arm over my right so since the beginning I've always kinda just pulled the club with the left hand down.

    Thanks again
