Hi Jose!

Thanks for submitting your swing!

First of all, there are so many great things going on in your swing such as your transition from the top.

There are a couple of minor tweaks I see that may help you feel more stable and in control.

1. Move away from the ball at address. In your down the line video, I see that your body weight is sitting onย your heels which is visible by looking at your toes.

I would love to see your weight distributed more in the balls of both feet. A way to test out whether your weight is in the correct place is by having someone try to push you over while you are in your address position.

If your weight is still on your heels, it will be very easy for someone to push you over but if it’s in the correct place, you will feel stable.

You will most likely feel like you are too far away from the ball which is okay. Sticking your booty out and bowing to the ball should make you feel like you are a bit more over the ball.

2. I see that you are trying to force a weight transfer at impact. This is also visible by the amount of movement I see in your feet as well as how creased your right shoe is once you hold your finish.

There are two drill suggestions I’d like to make to you for this one. First, I would practice with no shoes on so you can really feel how much your feet are moving. You could practice this at home and then hit some balls at the range once you are comfortable.

The second drill I would like you to try is the “no crease” drill. Every time you hit a ball and make your awesome finish, look down to make sure there are no creases visible on your right shoe.

This is a sure way to make sure your weight is completely transferred to your left foot.

The smooth weight transfer will relieve your feeling of “steepness” because you are no longer feel like you are hanging back.

Start with the shorter clubs and work your way up.

Hope this helps!
