Hey all! I've been working on my swing a ton this summer (live in Minnesota) and finally decided to upload a video and hear some feedback!! I'm currently working on fixing my early extension as well as transitioning to more of a "one-plane" swing. I scoured the internet for drills to fix my early extension, however none of them have worked :( . I've primarily relied on the feeling of squatting and rotating my hips instead of sliding them far forward. Let me know what you guys think of my swing! Any feedback is appreciated :)

Hi, I struggled with this a great deal for quite some time. For me, it was a combination of Shawn Clement's Hogan Power Drill and Monte's Zipper away drill that helped me to stop early extending. Initially, the move will feel extreme but in reality, it will be a small movement and for me, really helped my ball striking and path. Look the videos up on YouTube and give them a whirl. You can practice without a club. Try with your hands on opposite shoulders, maintain posture and rotate, keeping your bottom against a wall etc. Hope that helps. Good luck.

Thanks for your input man! For whatever reason, the zipper drill hasn't worked for me in the past. I do like the Hogan power move tho! I'll try er out!!

Well, turns out the "one-plane" swing I referred to above did not help. I ended up coming too far from the inside and struggled with some sh***s of the heel. So, I am now attempting to get back to more of a neutral path! I came across a video by Mike Molaska on YouTube and it resonated with me. I'll provide a link of that video along with a video of my swing. I really like the feeling of being "over-the-top from the inside". Obviously this would not be good advice for someone struggling with an outside-to-in club path, but for someone that is drastically from the inside I think it is great! I haven't had a ton of practice with this new feeling yet but here is a video of my swing nonetheless!

And here is the Molaska video:

I'd love to know of anyone else that has come across these videos and had success!! Also, all swing advice is welcome :)
