And I wonder why I can't hit a fairway.

They were talking about Furyk's hips being cleared like halfway through his down swing and your hips kinda reminded me of that. It's fine, as long as you can keep the club square...

You are at the beginnings of casting the club out trying to control and power the head at the same time?
I have been fishing a lot lately...maybe it's rubbing off.

I have a little trick to create more lag but I really drop it to the inside and it gets hard to time and I can't hit a fade with that move.

I think it would turn your setup back a bit to the right also. It looked like you were finishing left of your setup/path line.

That's easier said than done. :)

I'll take Furyk's swing if I could hit as many fairways as he does.

Ok, more lag, less casting...more rotation, less hip slide...shorter backswing with slower hips...square clubface. My head is going to be swimming on the 1st tee today, lol. Speaking of which, I gotta go. I tee off in 2 hours, lol.

I do appreciate all the help guys. I'll get back to the range to work on some things tomorrow.

I just see your head moving all over. Hard to get back to setup when you move your head alot. That's what my pro showed me last time and it makes a huge difference as far as contact. Wished I had your flexibility.

Yeah I noticed that too. Mr Elastic.
