      I think you did some tips about imagining swinging with a tube or silo around oneself to avoid swaying in the backswing. You have links to those? Could not find it. Cheers 🙂
      And everyone should try the swing analysis, really cheap way of getting you swing together easier 😉

    You don’t need any swing analysis by an outer person ,you can do that all by yourself in front of a window pane at home .I check this regularly by myself .Paul ,you made an excellent video some time ago showing this ,with the movement of the upper body around two tubes enveloping the back keg and the front leg .I tend to move my head back too much when I want to “exagerate ” the shoulder turn back

      A lot of people need swing analysis. For years, I have had people come for lessons saying they’ve got it when they are not even close. So you may be able to self diagnose your swing but 99% cannot.

      You might not need an analysis for this specific thing, but I was talking more in general. So easy to think you got everything mastered when in fact there are pieces to the swing thats not Perfect 😉

        There’s too much talking and analysing about THE golf swing .Nô top Golfer has a perfect swing .THE only way to progress is to Play ,Play and Play again on THE golf course ,fin d what suits your swing and what doesn’t .MOE NORMAN had an awful looking swing ,and yet hé was a GREAT Golfer .DUSTIN JOHNSON and BUBBA WATSON have very unorthodox swings ,but are GREAT champions .THE worse thing to do is to be bound to a golf TEAÇHER who wants you to Play his unique way .
        In this respect ,THE only serious golf Instructor I know is PAUL WILSON .I’m with his video lessons since three years and I have greatly benefitted from his teaching .I’m 82 years old ,I Play since 50 years ,I’ve known numerous Golf Instructors ,but now m’y game is well established and I Still Play to a handicap OF 7 ,three Times a week ,all year round ,i never go to a driving range ,complétely usuelless ,and I Watch carefully on THE TV how THE ” greats ” OF today’s Play in the major championships .You learn a lot watching them ,each with his unique style OF pkay.

          Up to you really, but if you follow Paul’s swing and you want the same swing having a few analysis with Paul and Pete can only help.

            I agree ,having one on one lessons with PAUL would certainly help finding my inevitable flaws (I believe I know what they are ),and lead to cure them ,but I live on the FRENCH RIVIERA ,it’s several thousands of miles from LAS VEGAS.I’m too old to travel that far these days ,all the more the USA has become very much inhospitable to foreigners ,it’s not the same good old USA I loved from the post World War days until 1990 and where I played countless rounds of golf in FLORIDA .
            There is as much shooting of innocents in the USA and insecurity there than there’is in FRANCE with the ISIS desperados coming back from SYRIA
            And taped videos of my swing won’t show much ..

  3. Found out why I was struggling with the tilt and poor shots, I was back at moving my head too much in the backswing. Feeling more central in the backswing and feeling like Im staying behind it in the downswing really gets me back at hitting solid shots again. Even with a feeling of staying central I move my head 3-4 inches. Hopefully I can now move on to other parts of the swing 🙂

    • Stian,

      Very good. The last time I saw your swing I thought you were looking great. You really should be down to tweaking it as opposed to working on major moves.
