I finally figured out how to download video from my phone to my pc so here goes...
My hook has been pathetic the last few sessions and after this taping I think I know why. I seen many problems I don't know exactly how to fix.
1) I bend over at the waist to get low rather than bending the left knee. I suppose I got into this horrible habit because I have two bum knees.
2) My follow through is just odd. I extend way down the lane and it just stops. I know my hand is supposed to come up in a natural half circle as a natural progression of the swing. But, it appears the swing hits a wall at release and it actually feels that way. I have tried to get my hand up through release and just cant. Something is preventing me from doing so.
3) I thought my hand was under the ball. Shoot, I have a terrific wrist support. But somehow I am getting to the bottom right side of the ball on my downswing.
I would assume by me extending down the lane, and my hand being on the right side of the ball...that's what's killing my hook.
4) I wrap my swing around my back. I would have never guessed this without the video.
I need some help desperately as I have no one around this part of the country willing to coach me. And I have been asking around.
