I've made a lot of progress the last few years, going from plateaued for 5-6 years at about a 4 handicap, to getting to a 2 last year and scratch level this year. Lots of thanks to Monte and Dan C along the way, they guided this 5 year process with a couple online lessons, Drive 4 Dough, and research into their philosophies. I used to early extend like crazy now its hardly at all. However, I still am a bit steep in my transition and still have to play a bit of a pull, which can get tough with long irons and driver on tighter courses.

This is an 8 iron. I know my backswing is a tad bit inside, but when I take it back straighter/outside I steepen it even worse.

Anyways, what do you all see that can get me a bit more shallow in the transition & downswing. Some of my ideas:
  • Shorten backswing a bit
  • Right knee seems to fire towards the ball too early

Thanks all!

I’d start with too close to the ball.

Thanks for your reply Monte... Good catch. I always have a tendency to get too crowded. Would you say about an inch to 2 inches further away would look about right?

I'll start with 3 or so and experiment from there. Thanks!

Back is on the mend so I'm planning on being at Sioux Falls clinic next year. Back let me down for a while this spring.
