    Working on it. Uploaded new editing software and taking some time to get to grips with. Using the practice session from the other weekend, a cut off point as to where the swing is/was to refer back to as I progress. My pet project for the weekend. THe software is brilliant but not overly user friendly and intuitive

    It will certainly be useful to chart your progress. Think you should utilize head covers and them sticks to make sure you start the swing off right in the takeaway before you tackle the length of swing. I Noticed every swing was being taken away outside. That was the first thing Fostin was telling you off for.

    Re: I had a lesson today and... (rolling thread)

    Had a lesson on Trackman the other day which was fairly decent.

    The path figures were fairly consistent, however, the club face was all over the place. I was very static at impact, and needed to turn more. Without altering anything, but the feeling of getting out the bloody way, that face angle improved massively and the flights and delivery were so much more improved. I also found swing speed and ball speed increased by a few mph, in turn increasing carry. We then tried to sort out another 'flaw' I have, which is swinging around myself a bit too much...but that's a work in progress.

    Towards the end of the lesson, we switched up to driver, something I consider the most consistent club in the bag. I was hitting it fairly solid, carrying at 235, but spinning at 3500. We used the optimiser feature of Trackman, which takes the launch conditions and informs you that if you change certain characteristics, what the difference could be. Looking at the figures, I was consistenly hitting around 5-6* up on the ball (which was a surprise to me!) but there was too much spin, so we needed to adjust the spin loft. I got the wrench for driver, and knocked it down from its standard 10.5* to the lowest it would go...8.5*...and we continued hitting. No change in ball flight, swing path or anything, and the spin dropped massively to around 2000-2200, on a consistent basis, which in turn increased driver carry to 255, running to 280. I was amazed...but shows how technology can certainly help. I am looking forward to seeing how this translates at the range later, and then on the course over the weekend....fingers crossed it sticks!

    Note: Before all the comments fly in...I am aware that the Trackman is set to 70*, no wind etc etc....but still, in dry data conditions, the consistent carry stands!!

    Would you advocate it being the same length as the backswing or take them all to a complete follow through ?

    I'd have thought it's more the fact that the through swing is shorter than the back swing (sometimes considerably so). Deceleration is a killer
