Hello Aimr75, Nice swing you have! I like your setup and your backswing! It is on a good plane. Sure you can improve on your downswing, I see that when you make your downswing you have too much movement of your hips, making your downswing plane from the outside to inside, that's with a poor release, makes your shots with a slice or fade generally, but it can also create a bad hook. I sugest that you try to make your downswing first with your arms going down, instead of you hips going first. Watch a Sergio Garcia golf swing on youtube, just to understand what i'm saying, he move his arms down a lot on his downswing. Try making your release much earlier. And the most important thing, keep patience and try it, try it, try it, with good attitude. Keep in touch!

Sure you can improve on your downswing, I see that when you make your downswing you have too much movement of your hips, making your downswing plane from the outside to inside, that’s with a poor release, makes your shots with a slice or fade generally, but it can also create a bad hook.

thanks for the reply! So with the hands going down, do you mean simply dropping the hands/arms from the top of the backswing so as to come more from the inside on the downswing? I can sort of see what you mean in this vid from about 13sec

Hello Aimr75, Excellent! You got the point! On the Sergio Garcia video that you post, you can see how he starts his downswing dropping his arms first. And again! EXACTLY, you need to come on the downswing from the inside. Good job! Give it a try with faith, confidence and be patience. Keep in touch!

Jorge, Sergio Garcia start his downswing with his arms first? Interesting according to 3D measurement his swing sequence for the downswing always starts with his lower body initiating the downswing first. His lower body starts accelerating towards the target before his arms complete their backswing and changes direction. Sergio is a float loader and the only way this can occur is by the lower body accelerating first as I described above. Freddy Couples is the same. The top tour players generally have a kinetic link start from the ground up. Their swing sequence is feet, hips, upper body (shoulders), arms and the club. When we tested tour players over the past 25 years they were the findings the sequence they created. It's hard to tell on 2D video any one's swing sequence, we are all just guessing. This is a better view to look at, Sergio is starting with his lower body first in this video. Sergio's Swing face on

Zen, this downward movement of the arms is commonly taught amongst coaches, they see it on video of the greats so teach it directly. I have done it myself with poor results as it always seems to lead to more early release, over the top, and scooping. We all know that the sequence starts with the lower body yet teach an upper body change. Is their a better way of teaching this dropping movement if the arms? By the way, where is the over the top move in his swing? Are we measuring it in a new way?
