Ok, here's my new video.



(I suggest clicking the "watch in high quality" link below the video).

One thing I noticed in the shots from the back is that my head stays above the ball during the swing, but just before the release, it moves to the right by at least 5 or 6". This is probably what's causing me to lose focus on my target and miss right sometimes. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Does anyone notice anything else that I should change?

I think what is causing the head to move right is it almost looks like you are slowing the ball down in the downswing at about 45 degrees or so from the top of the backswing to release. Its almost exactly half way, and I think the slowing the ball down might knock your body out of timing just enough to cause you to lean that much more in order to keep yourself from falling off the shot. Does anyone else see anything because that is all I am able to pick out?

Actually, I noticed the slowing down, too. But wasn't sure. So now the question is what is causing me to slow down. Is it the slide or maybe bad ball fit - I may be grabbing the ball at that point?

I think the slowing down might be just you trying to make sure your swing is so free and relaxed that you are making sure it is slow, and as it goes to increase in speed coming down you don't want to pull on it so you slow it up. Just a guess, as thats kind of what I catch myself doing every now and then but that could be completely off based.
