What do yo shoot? Those looked pretty good, maybe a little stiff near the end of your follow through, what does your ball flight normally do? Do you have face on vid?

Looks like you reach for it just a little bit. This causes a little flatness in your swing. Clubface a little closed at the top. I bet your misses are quick hooks/toe hooks. Minor things. Very solid overall. With any kind of shortgame you definitely shoot in the 70s.

Very solid overall. Based on how good it looks I would say you should look at some stretching exorcises so that you can get a better rotation of your shoulders. Your rotation is better than probably 80% of golfers, but it's something you could improve on without really messing with your swing.

Look at Tiger here. Tiger Swing

He gets his back pointed to the target, hell maybe even past it. You'll probably never get to that point but compare with your driver. Stretching will help you get more rotation and it's something many golfers don't even think about. I really don't think you should mess with your swing unless there is something wrong with how you hit the ball.

by the way, do you happen to know Darren Cole?
He was my teammate in college. Great player, great guy.
Last I heard, he was a club pro somewhere around Melbourne.

I played on tour when Darren was playing, he was such a solid performer,and a nice guy. I guess he has a club job now as I know he isn't playing anymore. Like me he was unable to make the leap to one of the major tours, and trying to grind out a living from playing only in Australia isn't much of a life.

Just a note about my flexibility and rotation, I'm extremely flexible for a 34 yr old, I make no effort to rotate off the line when I swing. I work on keeping my movement as efficient as possible, while the club has complete freedom.
