Hello Dariusz and all; hope 2011 is good year for all, especially in the golf area.

A little assistance if you could please Dariusz. Seemed I was cruising along nicely hitting the ball well and then took a week off. Played in the monthly medal on Saturday and started blocking my driver. As I have mentioned I get advice from all quarters, one guy suggested I was picking the club up too quickly; possibly a remnant from the days of having most of my weight on the left side, another guy - a pro said i was standing too far away from the ball.

I think like most things I take on especially changes to my golf swing that seem to help for a short time - I may be overcooking the diagonal stance. I say this because after watching our video on Hogan Setting the Swing Motion, I see his diagonal stance is less severe as mine, Hogan's shoulders also appear to be open where I am very closed and on reflection I could be standing too far away.

I hope to get this right as the club championships are only two weeks away and if I can get back to hitting the ball as I have been I am a very big chance.

I hope your crystal ball is not too cloudy and functioning well D and welcome your thoughts.

Thanks Mate

While it is not easy to find a culprit without a video your description is very plastic and it is very probable that the diagonality of your stance can be overcooked, as you said. It seems that your path is too in-to-out which would be confirmed by your words stating that the shoulder line is closed.
I'd suggest to toy with diminishing the diagonality without changing current relationship between shoulders, hips and feet which seem to be good judging on your previous posts. Just turn everything anticlockwise at setup so that hips are open, shoulders square and feet slightly closed.

Please do not hesitate to ask anytime, John. I would like to wish you to win the tourneyand become new club Champion. It would be a great asset to the BGST as well Smile

Cheers

Thanks Dariusz, very grateful for your time and knowledge. Your latest blog on Balance in the Coronal Plane was very opportune in helping assist with my dilemma, not to mention your suggestion on the diagonal stance, open hips and square shoulders.
I have uploaded two video's; one with a 5 iron and the other a driver. Both shots I hit beautifully, however it took a bit of tweaking to get my set up feeling comfortable. On reflection I was losing my " tush angle " I hope I have that right; and feeling more weight is now on the heels at set up. By having the shoulders back in line with the Coronal plane and also square with the target line while the hips are open. All of the above I believe have helped me get my weight on the right heel on the back swing, something I was very inconstant with.

One thing I have noticed is my swing plane is a lot steeper than Hogan's, I welcome your comments over all Dariusz.

Thanks again Mate.

Very grateful.

Wow, John ! Looks very well, mate. Do not change ANYTHING before the tournament. Your plane, balance, CoG shift, rhythm and tempo is very nice. No doubt you're so confident in your goals.

I will tell you after it what adjustment you need to make to lower your plane (although your swing with your iron looked very acceptable) after the tourney. Now just make everything totally natural and comfortable . The diagonality of your stance looks great now (in case of small blocks you can even diminish it slightly).

Cheers Smile

Good on you Dariuz, to reiterate very appreciative. Yep felt really good today towards the end. What I will work on for the next few days in front and or of a video camera is consolidating a repetitive and correct set up. And all should be good after that.

I look forward to your suggestion when you feel I am ready.

Just been watching footage of the horrendous floods we have up north of the Country, a major major catastrophe developing.

As you may be aware we have these floods in one side of the country and killer bushfires on the other, a country of extremes Australia, but a great place to live where everybody helps each other in times of need.

Thanks again Mate - Love your work.

We have lots of deadly floods in Poland during recent few years, therefore, I know what a tragedy it can be. I hope your beautiful coutry will handle this sad time very soon.

Cheers
