    Posted: 07 March 2011 at 1:06pm
Hello everyone,
 
I got the chance to hit balls yesterday for the first time in 2 months. So the only work I've done on my swing has been some mirror work here and there.
 
I don't have video right now, but I did happen to get a picture just post impact. My question is, does it look to have to much axis tilt? I was striking the ball extremely well for not practicing/playing much at all. Just curious if you think I could be a bit more stacked over my left side at this point.
 
Maybe my left shoulder needs to be further left and more on top of the left leg?  Any thoughts?
 
Here is the picture I got.  Any suggestions/thoughts greatly appreciated!

You're pretty well stacked with the hip joint but you're hanging back a little bit causing the excess secondary axis tilt.  Your right foot should be rolled inward more and the heel should be coming off the ground at impact.  Getting the weight more on the left heel/ankle at impact will get you stacked better and get rid of the excess secondary axis tilt.  Check out the impact alignments video!

That is one thing I have worked on, is quieting the right foot and leg. I use to have a hump the ball kind of a move.  I think I prefer this error than the previous.  I will re watch that video and focus on the weight going to the left heel/ankle more.
 
thanks snwbord24

I think I'd prefer that error to the ball hump any day!  Also, revisit the weight shift part 3 video as well as the 5 min to perfect golf setup and weight shift video.  I think it's important to remember that your whole body moves laterally, not just the hips, when you shift the weight left into NJA.

Good insight there! Yeah, I'm over ball humping, on to better things.

One more thing to add is the new vid that was posted about where you need to be at impact and all your checkpoints.

I will do that, I think I am a few vids behind.
 
Little off topic, but it's amazing the changes that come about through these drills and learning the correct way to move.  I haven't hit balls in a couple months and some of the few photo's I got were some of the best I've been in.

I agree with your statement but with the beautiful days here in Florida it is hard!

I found that using a video camera has been confusing to me. It is hard to fix things AFTER you have already done them.

I have been doing nothing but mirror work and finally got M3, squat and tush line fixed.

Good stuff.

I don't think so. Picture on the left is Chuck hitting an 8 iron. It looks pretty much the same to me? One way to get your right heel more of the ground at impact is if you can separate your hips (hips more open) and shoulders stay as is with the same amount of weight shift as in your picture.

I only said I haven't hit balls in a few months because I havent had the time, not because I chose not too. Id love to practice like the good ol' college days. But was saying how surprised I was with the changes that came about from mirror work/drills/learning what to move properly etc.

Visually those two pics do look very similar, but who knows when in real time and with dynamics and all.  But I am happy with the results, I've spent a lot of time in mirror working on not humping the ball so I think I'm moving in the right direction.
 
Always curious what CQ thinks Smile
 
Thanks guys!
