Hello everyone, after the thread a couple of weeks ago saying where were all the Monte helped me threads i said i would update my progress.



A little about me, I play once and practice a couple of times a week during summer and about one of each in winter. Im 6ft and a big lad so never going to have an Adam Scott backswing image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> At the start of taking lessons i was off 2.8 UK handicap (3). Ive always struggled with a flip, taking no divot and hitting the ball very high and generally inconsistent. my chipping is the best part of my game since i had short game lessons with Gary Smith (see youtube linear technique videos) but knew to get better i needed to get my long game sorted, theres only so much your short game can save you!



My first lesson was at the end of May about 6 weeks before my club championship, i was hitting horrible hooks with my driver and just striking it awful. Here are the 2 videos i sent Monte:

Monte's diagnosis: Dave, it's really simple what&am&lt;script id="gpt-impl-0.004028597679551771" src="https://securepubads.g.doubleclick.net/gpt/pubads_impl_108.js"></script>p;#39;s going on here. You are so far across the line at the top, your lower body can't move (rotate), or you'd get steep. Your arms have to drop a ton in order to shallow the club without the lower body turning, this gives your arms no room and you have to dump all the leverage.



So Monte had me working on better left arm rotation going back to get the club in a better position at the top and therefore less compensations coming down. so off to work i went...

    I emailed a video to Monte a week later to see if I was on the right track and he said it was looking much better which is always good to hear what your working on is going correctly!



    I started hitting the ball a lot better and even taking a divot with short irons again, and when i got the hooks with the driver i knew it was due to me reverting to old backswing.



    I won my club championship and shot one of the best rounds of my life in the 2nd round, level par round a 7,000 par 72 with CSS 74 and it was playing super tough that day. so i made up the 3 shots i was behind and ended up winning by 5 it was playing so tough.



    Here is the videos i sent Monte a week after this in mid July:

    Monte's response:



    Dave, looks great.

    You have two small issues and they are related.

    1. Your right hip isn't getting deep enough. You have enough hip turn, but the right hip isn't far enough away from the ball.



    2. Right heel coming off the ground prematurely as a result.

    I know this isn't much info, but me telling you anything else would be doing more harm than good. This is plenty of information. Get that right hip deeper and the right heel should stay down the proper amount of time.



    and off to work i went again...

    I put a few good rounds in in competitions and am now down to 1.8 hcap. and am playing much more consistently and better than i ever have in my life. am still struggling with a bit of a flip and hitting it high but i can feel its getting better and i am getting there with the help of Mr. Scheinblum.



    I have sent my 3rd lesson off to him and he replied saying "Your first move down in transition needs to be your rib cage, right hip or zipper moving away from the ball, estbalishing you into your left heel sooner and making room for your right elbow to lead more and shallow the shaft more". he wanted to see video of me with my right elbow leading and shallowing to start the downswing. here are the videos i have sent him and am awaiting his reply.

    and this was at the end of practice hitting a driver off the deck which i was never able to do before i started the lessons, i would always drop kick it.



    [media=]



    I love how simple Monte keeps everything and only gives and tells me to work on one thing at a time, and am certainly starting to see improves in the consistency of the results on the course. obviously there are still things to work on and im sure we will get there in time. im sure i need to body rotation on the downswing and at impact but i will listen to the boss man and do what he tells me!



    if anyone is considering online lessons with Monte i cant speak highly enough of them.



    thanks for reading and feel free to comment with thoughts, suggestions and questions and i will keep this updated with my progress as i go.

    thanks very much, it felt so alien at first and felt so laid off like it was perpendicular to the target line, took a lot of work but certainly is a lot better. good luck with sorting yours out image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Great swing Dave. Thanks for sharing your journey. You do a great job of "swinging left," especially for a bigger guy. I read your problems about not taking divots and hooks and sympathized, since i have those issues too, but I think you were selling yourself short, since you clearly play well and have a very nice swing.

    Thanks very much, I guess most of us are always over critical of our own game. Its certainly starting to get there.



    Gunna keep working on the next piece to the puzzle, leading with the right elbow, and hopefully will soon see a bit more body rotation at impact and more room for the arms coming down with forward shaft lean and nice consistent divots. And a few more yards wouldnt be a bad thing image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    Big lad or not, that is a seriously good golf swing.



    Keep it up. I'm not playing to the same level as you, but many of the issues you mention resonate very well with me, particularly the tendency to hit irons thin / too high combined with the drop-kicked / fat 3W off the deck. (I know you said driver off the deck, but that is far, far outside of my arsenal...)

    Thank you very much sir.



    I was normally ok with 3 wood off the deck but if I tried to hit a driver I would always flick and hit the ground several inches before the ball. only in the last month or so have I been able to do it and its actually not a bad shot to have in the arsenal. Played Saturday in a match and on the par 5 9th at my club I had about 270 to the middle slightly uphill and the ball not rolling much. I thought I would have to swing out my boots to hit a 3wd near there, (normally my 250-260 club) so thought what the **** give driver off the deck ago, manage to sneak it on the front edge to set up an easy 2 putt birdie. I only ever tried it on the range as I remembered Vijay saying you can tell how well you are swinging if you can hit a driver off the deck. worth a try.



    Sounds like you have similar problems to me then with the results, keep working at them! image/good.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':good:' />

    Been working the last few days in my spare time and tonight at the range working more on starting transition with moving zipper away from the ball and leading with the right elbow, and trying to get rid of my rock/sway onto my heels to start the backswing. starting to see less sway at the start of the backswing, more open hips at impact and what feels like more room through impact was absolutely ripping the driver.

    Congrats man, great looking swing. How would you describe you swing thought at top of backswing, when you want to move zipper away from ball. Looks like you are creating loads of room for arms.

    Thanks. My thought is a simultaneous one of leading with right elbow and moving my zipper / belt buckle diagonally southwest from the ball.



    I did a couple of montes miss the ball drill and that really gives you the feeling so maybe start with a few of those and that should give u an idea? Hope this helps

    Hi all, a little update, been struggling with getting a deep right hip going back, keep losing my tush line from DTL view and from FO my hips move to the left as i swing back, thus leaving me with a top of the backswing position looking like this:

    ah that's only my feet pointing a bit left because I'd been working on squaring my hips up at address because they've been a bit shut the last few weeks. Obviously need to work on that and feet more. However the miss left has been there for a while.

    thanks very much. Yeah it's nice looking back and seeing the improvements. Most notably in plane. Gotta keep working at the changes cos they always creep back in. Glad that I think I may be finally on the right road with getting the weight in the right heel. It feels like I'm moving miles to the right but clearly I'm not. Good luck with your swing and changes

    Shot 1 under today. Had it to 3 under through 10 but a couple of dropped shots coming in on what is a brutal back 9 in the wind today. So very happy. Swing was a bit off towards the end but early on was working well especially irons even when caught a little thin. Swing felt much freer today which was a nice feeling

    Awesome. I love the shaft at the top now. Wish I could get my shaft in that same position all of the time. Much easier to hit it good from there. Nice work on taking it to the course too.

    Thanks mate,



    i'd like to get the shaft a little less vertical and a bit more on plane going back, which was one of the first things Monte and I worked on but now my turn is changing going back it seems to have altered the left forearm rotation so need to work on that. just happy to be keeping that tush line.



    the main thing is my ball flight seems more penetrating which is a huge plus as I suffered with high floaty irons. was a nice 5 yard draw when it was going well yesterday. now lots of repetitions to ingrain image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I also worked something out in my setup which i'd never noticed before. which isn't helping my position at the top. in my setup from centre my right foot is wider than my left, so i need to work on spacing my feet the same distance apart.



    here is a rough stick drawing trying to explain what im talking about:

    Correct posture bending from the hips and then turn the left shoulder down into my right heel. Progress is being made. Need to keep an eye on when doing left shoulder down (not flat like normal) that their is enough left arm rotation going back as the tendency with The shoulder turn feeling more vertical is for the club to get a bit vertical going back as well.
