The upswing is abit fast..
There is another YouTube video of you in 2007... I think that swing looks more fluid!!!

*This is my personal opinion*

Nice wor... I thought it's pretty much RSS. Swaying due to momentum of backswing? Hmm need the real coaches to determine that Smile

Hi Daren

The main differences are below:

Set up is too far back and shaft is leaning backwards



The takeaway is too wide which causes your shoulders to turn in the wrong direction



This gets you too far behind the ball at the top of backswing. From here you need to move a long way forward to get back on top of the ball at impact



To your credit, you manage to do a good job of getting good impact which is the most important thing



This is a good swing, however I feel it may be a little inconsistent from time to time due to the extra motion you need to get back to impact. Also as it has been years since you had any coaching, it is not uncommon to forget some basic things. If you need any help to get it back to RSS, I would be happy to help you.

Regards

Paul

RSS : Thank you for breaking my swing down and pointing out the difference. It was definitely helpful. I can still remember the drills Paul Riley gave me, Ill probably have to go back doing those drills again. Awesome stuff Smile

The drills I had were quite tough at first but you will get there once you manage to do it proficiently.
Had to do the following :-
- One Leg Drill (Hitting the ball on 1 leg)
- Looking at target and hitt the ball
- Putting baskets / golf bag to prevent me from swinging too inside
- Rotating around wall (feeling left pocket facing target)
- etc etc.

It will take you a few weeks to be good at these drills.
I am sure Paul or Chris will be able to point out more drills, it totally depends on your swing.
Different swing require different drills.

The pic showing the PRO golfer in black tee and pants is what Tiger Woods is doing now - Less Lateral Head shift or stay still (even better) when executing the up swing and the upper torso more stack against the ball at the impact zone.

Thanks RSS for pointing that up. I'm trying to perfect that too ... Old habit dies hard! pale
