This is my current swing with a 5 iron (205 yards) and I just sent it off to Dan for an online lesson. Current shape starts right of target line and draws back to the line or even a bit past the line. Before going to see Dan a few months ago, I was OTT and my 5 iron was 180 yards with a slight fade. My current swing feels like 75% effort, is WAY easier on my back compared to the 100% back breaker I used to have and is just way more consistent.  

I will work on the changes he suggests and post some progress videos in a few weeks! Sorry for the flickering lights :(

Got my lesson back from Dan and am very excited to start working on the next phase of my swing improvement. Flexible is the last word someone would use to describe me so I thought I would try some yoga. I knew I was in trouble when the pose of ease made my body sound like a bag of popcorn in the microwave...

My wife taught yoga for 18 years... I would always try to explain to her that guys hate yoga because the poses described as rest poses are really hard for us (downdog etc) due to flexibility issues and the poses that women talk about as hard are a piece of cake (chaturanga etc.)

So you are in their uncomfortable and in pain and the teacher is basically mocking you with her language.

Have fun man it is certainly worth the work.

Do you see a correlation between the harder you swing the more off line it goes? Or is the above sample not a reflection of a more general pattern?

I don't feel like I am swinging any harder. From before my lesson with Dan I had a OTT move. The goal when I left there was to be able to start the ball right of target and then work it back to target. The plan was to go to the extreme and then dial it back. I feel like I am at the extreme now and have thoroughly grooved the change. I just sent in for an online lesson with Dan and so will start working on the next phase this Friday. I think the next phase will drastically help my consistency. I also have a draw bias head which is not helping lol. I plan on doing another fitting in February.

It is a shame (in a good way for you) but it's hard to separate the gains due to speed training versus technical inorvemnts. Keep up the good work.

From august, the lesson with Dan had the biggest impact. From the last 2-1/2 weeks, the SSG has. I did not have skytrak from back then though. The combination of them both is the best of everything. I have a feeling that the next phase of the swing change will have a significant impact on both distance and consistency. If I can start hitting balls over 300 I promise to do a live youtube stream of me doing a 30 minute yoga session...

Everything always seems to come back to the back swing! People seem to underestimate the importance but I think that you cannot spend too much time on getting it right, Did he give you the stick drill as well?

Working on my lesson from Dan. Keeping my hands in front of me and the flat shoulder and hip turn. This picture was early on and I got better as the day progressed but if feels very strange. When I feel like a 3/4 backswing, itís past parallel so Ella helped me know when the club was in the right position at the top. This one is going to take a while to get right. I know the pics are far from right. Red shirt was from before, blue was today.

Whenever my ball striking goes south its always because I start turning too flat. This was the first big thing Dan had me work on. Felt so weird for so long feeling so steep on the backswing, but can't argue with the results. Great improvement! Have any new face-on pics?

I will get some next week. I am going to practice swing all week at home so get this feeling down more. It feels so foreign to me now.

Superspeed week three results. It was not a great week. I burned out doing way to many driver swings as I went driver shopping and ended up with a TS3. My speed was up slightly but not as much as I hoped. I am worn out though so I had pretty low expectations.
