Swing Notes

January 5-6, 2008---
-Setting up with slightly closed stance at address (right foot back).
-Feeling shorter swing at the top and not allowing the club to swing past parallel.
-Exaggerating the feeling of the club shallowing out on the downswing, and then releasing more by getting your right side thru the shot on the follow-thru.
December 16, 2007---
Posture:  Less bend at waist in uppder body.  Feeling more upright at address with weight on heels, not toes.  Shoulders should be in line with knees & toes at address.
Backswing:  Same thoughts of swinging shorter with arms wide at top of swing.
Downswing:  Keep in mind the thought of raising up with head/body to start the downswing.  Your tendency is for your body to go down, which pulls the club out and over-the-top on the downswing.
December 7, 2007---
-Stand further from the ball at address (especially with driver) and feel more erect posture.
-Backswing should be shorter with more width (arms wider and further away from body at top of swing).
-Feeling more extension in arms after impact.
**Setup position has really improved (shoulders are square, as opposed to open) and the shoulder turn at the top of the swing has also improved.
