Not a whole lot to change. It is tough to see clubhead throughout the swing but overall it is a very solid move.

I tend to really lose it right or hit a weak cut and I think it's just when I get out of sequence and spin open too fast. Speed isn't my issue, it's keeping things in check and maintaining the right tempo.

Reason I asked about ball flight was your body movements look like an inside out path however you "hold" the clubface open. Do you hit a true fade or more of a push fade? My definition of true fade is ball starts left of line and moves back towards it. If I hit a fade I start it right of line and it goes right, push fade. But I am very inside out path wise. Your path does finish well left, which has been my goal.

... As always I am a little reluctant to give advice off a video but since you axed. 🤪  Your practice swing is programming you to come underneath from the inside and hit up on the ball. You have a really nice swing and probably overcome that tendency most of the time with good hand eye contact but when you miss it will probably be a push right. I’d love to see your practice swing come in more descending with hands ahead like you are driving the ball into the ground and shoulders more square to the ball with the feeling that you are staying down and through the ball or covering the ball with your chest. When that starts to become part of your actual swing you will lose the fade and have a more penetrating trajectory. This really should not change your plane or tempo which are both excellent, just more of a mental change from hitting up to hitting down or straight through the ball and with your ability the physical change will follow.

Early extension has been an issue lately as can be seen here. Such a hard hard characteristic to get away from. Led to basically a slice here but in reality 5 yards left of the green isn’t the worse. I will crack the early extension one day. 
 

the sound is enjoyable however.

Working on a few things at the range today. I'm realizing a lot of my issues still boil down to letting my forearms roll the club back inside. Focusing on letting my hands work back and not around, keeping the club head outside of hands at parallel.

Another thing I'm working on from an old lesson is feeling like I pick the club up a little more, getting a little more wrist set earlier in the swing. Else I pull myself off the ball and get stuck on my backside.

This is a good swing where I did both well!

You know it's a good swing when you generate lots of club head speed but look like you aren't really trying!

What shot tracing program are you using for the video? I'd like to get something similar for the Cobra Connect Challenge.

Thanks! Tempo is something that is always on my mind, not wanting to rush my downswing. Sometimes I get quick and hit some nasty looking shots.

@gavinski91 The app I'm using here is ShotTracerPro on Mac OS. They make an iPhone and Android version as well, though I never had a lot of luck with the Android version. The app implies that it costs money (if you read the website), but I downloaded it for free and it seems to be fully featured. It does a decent job, too!

Here is one of me "better" 7 iron swings.  My distance is more around an average of 140, but I caught this one well.  Always interested in any thoughts or comments on my swing.  I am trying to figure out how to increase my swing speed and improve my ball striking to get to at least a 155 average on the 7 iron (and the standard gapping from there with the rest of my clubs).

... There is a lot of chicken or egg elements in any golf swing so I don't like talking club or body positions because there can be a myriad of reasons why, other than the obvious. An instructor in person/hands on can really help you better than a video critique. That said, I can give you 2 things to look at. Like most Ams, you are taking the club back too far to the inside which will almost always produce an over the top downswing. When your hands are waist high the club is well inside them and your right elbow is rising instead of folding. About 8 seconds in when your hands are just below waist high in the downswing, you are releasing the angle. Ideally you would like your right elbow pointing down and even with the front of your hip not behind it, which allows you to turn your hips through at impact. Your hips are still square instead of open at impact because your right arm is holding them back. 

... That is a LOT of info so the main things to concentrate on is getting the club on plane instead of inside on the back swing and getting your right elbow in front of your right hip on the downswing. One drill to help you feel this is stand with your feet together/knees locked so they don't bend and hit full shots with your 7 iron. This can give you a feel for cocking the club on plane going back and getting the right elbow in front on the downswing. Your hips should naturally open through impact even though your legs are locked. If you are successful doing this drill, you can start moving your feet apart about 6" at a time until you get to your normal address position. That will usually take anywhere from 5-10 different sessions (or more) under the watchful eyes of an instructor so be patient and don't rush it.

Thank you so much chisag! Great comments, and of course it is always easier to see the issues once they are pointed out!  Awesome critique and suggested drills.  I will definitely be heading to an instructor soon, and while it is the hardest thing ever to be patient, I know that it will pay off if I am.  

Speaking of my inside swing, I did recognize (thanks to the slo mo video) that I have a first move at the top of the back swing that starts me over the top... makes complete sense that the inside path start is contributing to that.  And I have always struggled with casting before impact... so spot on there.  The big question is what to do about it... and thank you again for giving me a few things to work on, and of course another urging to see an instructor.

Help me stop shanking partial wedges. Do I need to get my shoulders and weight back towards my heels at setup? Did some planemate work right before this and it didn’t seem to help.

Do the Adam young nail drill. Pretend there is a nail inside of the ball and try to hit that. Should give you more of a toe strike. Otherwise I would stand 1/2” farther back. You seem scrunched.

I do Adam’s 3d aimpoint technique. I’m aiming at the inside edge of the ball here. Need a more drastic fix or more specifically- a new feel

Help me stop shanking partial wedges. Do I need to get my shoulders and weight back towards my heels at setup? Did some planemate work right before this and it didn’t seem to help. 

 

 

... One of the most consistent flaws I saw when teaching was players taking the club back to the inside instead of on plane. Stop your video when the shaft is parallel to the ground on the backswing at 5 sec. and you can see the club head is well behind your hands. Should be in front of your hands or at least even with them. You are dragging the club back with your body instead of hinging your wrists. At the same point on your downswing the shaft has already been released and you are again dragging it through impact which causes a myriad of problems including hitting the hosel. 

... Start by making little chips and progressing to pitches focusing on hinging your wrists immediately and keeping the club head in front of your hands. Do not swing past waist high with your hands. The big difference is instead of the shaft being parallel when your hands are waist high, it should be vertical. Once you start getting the feel you can begin increasing the length of your backswing but just a little bit at a time. You are training yourself to do something almost 100% different than what you are doing now so it should feel VERY different. Take your time and don't rush lengthening your backswing. You can easily hit waist high pitches for a week engraining the new feel. I think that is plenty to start with, so good luck!
