Yeah, I now too have at least one tourney every week, and can see why you don't want to fiddle with your swing. I'm going to limit my swing changes to just the basics, like set up. Practice, practice, practice, and we'll come out on top!

I like your other swings much better. Your tempo seems really quick here. You have a reverse c finish, which usually means you are either reverse pivoting or sliding. You may also be tilting the shoulders a bit, rather than just turning. You also have a two plane swing again. The other day you had a one plane! On the plus side, your hand position at set up is good, which naturally leads to a better wrist cock throughout the backswing. A full wrist cock is giving you more lag, which means your probably hitting further right now. You really need to work on work on your weight transfer to the front foot, I can see by your follow through that your keeping a lot of weight on the back foot. You're probably scooping the ball in order to not hit 6 inches behind it.

I hit it 270 average, im definatly not reverse pivoting lol!

Like I said i am a two plane swinger naturally! I said i swing with no swing thoughts on the course just swing naturally but in my nett i was thinking about keepign my right elbow close to my body which mad eme have more a one plane action.

I kind of like these swings! And I took a nice divot after the ball so i didnt scoop.

But yeah I can see the sliight reverse c finish but I dont think its too bad of thing, I know alot of pros who ahve reverse c finishes

And with the quick tempo, ive always hit the ball hard!

man I know im sounding like im making excuses about everything you said but its the truth i swear!!

A reverse pivot or scooping action isn't going to affect a drive too much, because your suppose to hit slightly up on the ball. i think the reason you might not have lost any distance is because your wrist are getting fully cocked. I can definitey see by this video that you're hanging back on right side more than needed, and if you eliminated this, you'd hit the ball further and more consistent. Plus, a quick tempo isn't what makes you hit the ball hard. Not to mention that your follow through looked better on the other videos.

Jack's swing is much different than the modern model golf swing. Jack did a lot of things pros are now saying not to do. playing with a reverse c is probably going to lead to a lot of compensations in order to hit the ball good. I'm just trying to give you a suggestion, that would improve your consistency. When you posted your swing you said "What do you think" I told you what I think, and your downing my advice. That really makes no sense ricky. Next time you should put "what do you think" and then in parentheses put (I really don't care what you think, because I only want compliments so I can be cocky and sleep at night).

I not DOWNING your adive, I never did. Its just I dont agree. I find you pick out VERY SMALL things in peoples swings what ok might make a difference but they really are nothign bad at all. If it was a major problem then YES I would say HAY i have a MAJOR problem in my swing I need to sort this out. I dont think I had a major problem, I posted my swing maybe someone else could see a major problem, you couldent see a major problem. All the things you pointed out are problems but nothing which is too worry about and have headches about! So im not going to worry.

Why not post your swing and just listen too the compliments? Its great for the confidence Trust me I do it on all forums Thats where I get my confidence from

what is it you consider a major problem?

A bunch of small problems is just as bad as a "major" problem anyways.

A mojor problem as in SWING PLANE, COMING OVER THE TOP, REVERSE PIVOTING, BIG SWAYING.

I dont have any issues with, swing plane, over the top, reverse pivoting, big swaying and I shouldent have problems like that because I shooting around 70-74. Gona break par this year though

Look, the only problem i see in my swing is the reverse C finish, but is it really something I need to worry about at the moment. Sometimes you just have to play through the seasons and change these things within time.

If I was a 20 handicap and had these problems I would chnage them. But I ahve good talent and skill and can easily hit the ball well with 1 or 2 small problems. But that doesent mean I am not going to work on them in the future.

I thought I always looked for a perfect swing, but jeeze you must look for INCH perfect swing
