Ik Joon worked with David Leadbetter for 6 years and felt like he was not getting the answers to his swing and weak, high spinny ball flight that he wanted. He gave up the game for a while and now at the age of 28 decided to give it "one last go" to see if he could make it a professional level. In doing so, he needed to decide on a new instructor for his endeavor. He had narrowed it down to 4, me, Kevin Smeltz at Leadbetter academy, Brian Mogg who helped YE Yang beat Tiger Woods at the PGA championship, and Gregor Jameson from Lake Nona who has been working with Retief Goosen for the past couple years. He decided to go the RST route and work with me because the RST swing methodology makes the most sense and can answer and correct all his issues. So, he booked a flight from Korea to Orlando and committed to staying here one month to work with me. Here are some results after our first week on fixing his stuck, flippy position at impact to produce a ball flight that is literally half as high as before. The top row of pics are his first recorded swings, the bottom row is after 3 lessons. More pics to come... 

Also, here is an article that I go into detail the drills I used to create this chages:

CQ,
 
Can you tell us what you worked on so far and if you used any drills. Such a nice improvement.

The FO shot is a dramatic difference.  He is so much more 'on top of the ball' at impact, which is amazing because it looks like he is pushing off his right side alot less.

Hip spin vs. "squatting" and maintaining lag:

jdagolf, we spent a lot of time on the Belt Buckle Drill and squatting into the transition (video coming later this month), the Role of the Right Foot video was covered and then worked on all our impact alignments.

Noticed that the lead foot is now anchored just before impact as compared to rolled out in the old photo. Does that simply take care of itself as he reduces the right side push or is this something that he had to be conscious of

jdagolf, no, he had to work on contracting his glutes at impact to stabilize the hips. The left foot was flatter for not pushing off the right and spinning the hips while also understanding how to drive the left foot into the ground to straighten the left leg using the ground for leverage to release the club. Your body moves up (left leg straightening) while the club moves down (releasing the lag). These opposing movements create a powerful release leveraging the ground and using the big, strong glutes while allowing for a more passive release of the hands for speed. In other words, one more RST move for more speed with less effort.

I noticed you abandoned the imagery of two cymbals clanged together by the knees in the downswing....  Wink
I may go for it or I may not. It all depends on what I elect to do on my backswing.

Yes, no cymbals, Jodie Mudd would be happy to see that!
