    Now you've crossed into Fantasy Land. Next thing you know, you'll be expecting to hole putts, too.

    I love rifles. I wish they were still making them. My pings have FCM rifle 5.5 and they feel awesome. My old hogan blades had 5.5'a too. Love them!

    Those are as close to blades as Ping gets. They are also some of the most accurate clubs I have ever played.

    Mine are 14 years old and look like they are about 2. They were one if the last fee sets that Ping made in the US. Do some googling and you will see the Quality control issues Ping is having on their newer models (s56 & s55).

    Seriously as accurate as my Hogan blades.

    ImageUploadedByShot Talk1408934630.275352. rory's for my own side by side comparison. I can't help but notice that the main difference is that my hips are much more turned at this point in the swing, I'll attribute that to the fact that he has quite a bit more club head speed, other than that I would say that my project of modeling my swing after his, is coming together nicely!

    Your hips don't look much more open than his, it's your legs/feet. Compare your knees to his - yours are much more bent. I'd say it's because you are driving down and through rather than powering up and through. Also, your right foot is turned onto the toes already. I think you're losing a lot of power that way but if you're hitting it straight, I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

    I would agree with Tea. Honestly looking at the belt buckle, I think Rory's hips are turned slightly further than yours. The legs give the illusion otherwise though.

    So should I try to keep my feet on the ground while turning my hips all the same?

    As long as you're hitting it consistently, don't do anything. Just be happy, and keep hitting it.
