    Default Ben's Swing

    My swing as of last week, video is of me hitting an 8 iron. Looking to get a little more rotation with my hips, shallow out my swing a little but it's fairly solid at the moment.

    Haha yeah it was a cold/rainy night so I ended up in actual golf wear. Far removed from the normal sports shorts and tee shirt. I'm actually going to keep uploading progress on YouTube when I remember to try keep track of how I'm going!

    Really nice swing. Strong, balanced, good rotation, good through the impact area and complete follow through.

    How comfortable are you working different shapes?

    Cheers for that!

    Shaping is getting easier. Iron's i'm comfortable enough with it, i naturally play a little fade but have been starting to hit it both ways. Driver is a little harder for me to play that draw, but hopefully it comes soon enough. 3 wood i can hit both shapes, although controlling the amount is the toughest part.

    Very nice, contact and ball flight looked very consistent.
    Guessing you are about 6'6"? Interested in your shaft length and lie angle, I am 6'4" and just been fitted 1.5" over and 3' upright.

    Actually i'm slightly shorter than you! I do have long arms though, longer than the norm.

    I'm an inch longer and 2 degrees up, so not far from your setup!

    7 iron from today had excellent tempo Ben.

    Driver from Jan also had good tempo, but your shoulders and hips looked well out of alignment. If you remember back that far, did the driver leak right by chance?

    If you maintain that tempo, you will have far more good days than bad ones

    I'd imagine it would have leaked a little right if it did miss, that was always my miss.

    Hitting driver a lot better, straighter now thanks to a few little tweaks. Staying down through the hitting zone more, so i'm not spinning out early and leaving the face open.

    Irons i'm hitting pretty good too, far more quiet in my lower half, not swaying forward through impact. A lot better ball flight and trajectory.
