Hi guys,

I'm struggling to keep my backswing shorter, I have tried 3/4 swings but I just seem to hosel every 3/4 swing I do. I never feel ready to start the downswing using a 3/4 swing either it's like I have to guess when to stop.

In the video below is my normal lower back breaking swing but it is the point I get to which actually initiates the downswing for me. It is the point i feel 'loaded' and ready to hit the ball.

Any help appreciated guys, I will provide a front on view ASAP and apologies in advance if this is posted in the wrong place.

........too easy......I prefer Tito's with a twist.


As for the swing, not a teacher but, your dip at the top resulting in a lift at the bottom can't be good.

You should feel loaded when your weight is on the inside of your back leg.

If you don't get there, ya ain't loaded.....hic....

Hi Lewis

Youre almost certainly making a false turn. By that i mean just turning your shoulders so your left shoulder brushes your chin. You can swing that way but it just hand and arms, which is why you dip when starting the downswing.
With a full shoulder turn you should feel like your back is facing the target. If your doing it correctly and turn far enough your left heel will lift. As said above your weight will be inside your right thigh.
Start the downswing by planting that left heel, you will uncoil from the ground up. No need to rush, you will have bags of power.

Hi londoner
Thanks for the reply
My left heel does normally lift but it is usually a result of my left knee kicking in way too much to a point where it could almost touch my right knee.
A face on view would show this which i wi get up asap.
Again thanks for the reply appreciate it.

Try the "army drill" to sync up arms and body, as well as prevent your arms from breaking down after the ball.

first set/transfer/position mass through/to the inside of the legs; then use your arms.

Start your downswing long before upswing ends. It will both shorten your swing as well as give the load feel.

Your video shows that Londener is right. Concentrate on a better hip action first;
