Help, no laughing - stop casting drills

Posted by: user8 [FORUM MODERATOR] | Wed 26th May 2010 14:06 | Last Reply

Lots of posts previously on casting etc but any help appreciated on me stopping casting.  Guess my lack of hip action would help with this and if I managed to turn my hips through to the target line before impact this would help ?  add any comments to the post or video below.  Drills helpfully appreciated.

You are not casting, Darren, swing is nice and smooth but unfortunately you are swinging on an incorrect path. You know how to do it as I have already demonstrated to you.

Colin, was a 7 iron, stance maybe to wide.  I'm a usual slicer/puller of the ball with out to in swing path.  John's tweaks in the past have helped with a nice draw, just can't remember what he told more/didn't practice

Colin, a full shoulder turn is wasted if one turns the hips as well, because the hips should be restrained so that there is a feelable resistance when at the top of the swing. It is this that produces the power.
