Also is this to flat for a driver, and im having trouble with the big stick, couldn't hit a draw to save my life,

Should i stick with a fade swing in most of the videos, and try keeping right leg more firm on backswing, in turn making it shorter? Last lesson i had, basically told me to practise hitting the ball of the back foot, which would correct my over the top move Always struggled with this,

All you need is a transition. Your feel at the top should be to leave the club alone and let it drop, and not swinging as fast as you can back to the ball.

Watch how your right shoulder moves towards the ball. This is bad.

So should it feel like the left arm moves away and out on the downswing towards the right side of the fairway?

Sorry, but I'm not good enough to explain a transition properly but maybe these video's will help you.





I feel that my clubhead drops behind me. It's like the clubhead makes a loop and comes from the inside. It depends how steep or laid off your shaft is at the top of the swing. Watch J.Furyk's clubhead in his downswing. He is very steep and the clubhead drops in a big loop to the inside.

Be aware: I an OTT move you try to square the clubface right from the top to the ball. If you achieve to come more on a shallow plane you will probably hit the ball with an open clubface.

This was the tip i got from a guy off Twitter, said my hip needs moving first, which will keep the arms in longer. Slide and tuck

While this is a great site and there are other good resouces out there what does your teacher have to say about your issues. IF you trust your teacher and have seen results with them then follow what they recommend. I realize that other opinions can be valid but having rabbit ears and jumping from one tip to other has screwed more people than can be counted, dance with the one that brought you there. If on the other hand you don't have faith in your teacher then find another one.  

Best of luck on the road to improvement, fun and frustrating

For what it's worth I'd sort your set up a bit first, I'd try and stand more upright keeping more weight on balls of your feet, hips more towards forward and hands a bit higher...think adam scotts setup

Didn't mean to come off as sceptical. It is just having a trained set of eyes on me and my swing has helped a lot and got me back to hitting the ball good again much quicker than trying to figure it out on my own. Just my experience and I do wish you luck with what ever direction you go.

Your hips and shoulders are opening up to the target line at relatively the same time. In a proper swing the hips will open to the target line before the shoulders. One tip may be to think of keeping your back to the target as you start your downswing allowing your weight to shift and your hips to open before your shoulders.

the knee bend helps me be more stable, but yeah it does look more tha normal, defo tring to separate the hips in the downswing to fire first, leaving the shoulders behind, and the club trailing on a slightly inside path,

How do i hit the cut from this though? When ve been used to the other way
