    I'd rather not if it's going straight.

    You've got enough swing thoughts as it is.

    hey cool work Chris
    obviously been putting some good hours in under guidance

    some good stuff goin on there

    - it's good to have the leading edge of the club around parallel to good spine posture when the club is 1st horizontal to the ground & also hopefully around parallel to the feet & the ball/target line - just need to watch the club face doesn't overdo it & 'look down' too much at the ground wouldn't really want it looking any more 'down' around that point in the backswing

    can see why that tad more hip turn just prior to impact along with having the trail elbow a tad closer would help - good thoughts to have - as both would help keep the flight 'straighter/less curvature' also if given reasonable club face angle control at impact - as all that would help stop the path moving to being a tad too far 'in to out'

    & if you don't rotate lower & upper body enough if the 'swing path' is also getting towards too much 'in to out' that can get a case of the 'leftfields' goin for sure

    would just keep up the good work you are already doin under guidance

    Thanks Coach,

    I certainly "buttoned it" when I got better hip turn and the right elbow more tucked in, and I think that's what Bob was alluding to as well, so I shall work more on that tomorrow at the range. I have both hips replaced so I've been restricted at times with the movement but happy to do it slowly to start with and build up in time. I found that I need to do both elements, hips and right arm, to get the even better strike with definite straightness.
