Hello everyone! I've been having trouble with my distances to start the season. My ball flight is surprisingly straight for this time of year, but I can't ever tell how far I'll hit it. It's not that I haven't learned my distances, and it's not a thin/fat shot problem. One thing I've considered is a potential flip or early extension. From what I can tell from taping my swing, I think I might be really close to flipping before impact. On every swing I've filmed, I believe my hands are still in front of the ball at impact, but I am wondering if I'm not getting my hands in front of the ball in the on-course swings where the distance is affected. I've been given advice on my wrist position and flat shoulder turn, so I'll be working on those next. Is there anything obvious that might be causing this that you guys can see? I would also welcome any other advice that anyone might have. I'll post my most recent down the line and face on videos with my 8 iron. I'm not sure which would be more useful. Also, if there is a specific club that works best with swing analysis, let me know. I've just been using my 8 iron because it's my favorite. Thank you!
