I can't stop looping my swing. It loops from the inside out. I tend to pull a lot of shots left. I am working on trying to upload some videos. Are there any drills I can do to try to resolve. Thanks in advance. Please hurry. I leave for USBC in 3 weeks

one steps. Walk up to the foul line and step back about 2-3 feet. Setup how you normally would and do not pay much attention to where your shot goes. Focus on your swing. Stay loose and push the ball out, let it swing three times and on the third, pretend your taking your last step of your normal approach. We use this drill usually once a week. It is an excellent drill for timing, arm swing, and accuracy. keep at it until things feel better. Then take a normal shot and you will definitely see the results. Concentrate on keeping that swing nice and straight.

One-step drills are a good exercise. Additionally, you could put a towel under your swing arm and if the towel falls you messed up. Your goal is to keep the towel against your body.

I would also work on your pushaway and try to push the ball on your target line and keep it on that line. Also on your second step try to bring that step over in front of your non-slide foot. You might be subconsciously trying to get your body out of the way and it is causing your shots to go arwy.

Do you grab/grip/clench the ball a lot?

Blinds, start with your ball to the side, over your outside foot. Then keep your elbow tight against your body. Your pushoff should be straight, and the swing plane straight.

Now, it you are turning your hand so the hand is on the outside of the ball in the backswing, you will have a tendency to swing the arm around. Keep your hand behind the ball throughout.

Nobody on this site is going to be able to fix your swing in 3 weeks, go find a good coach and take as many lessons as you can, you should have been working on this since last summer. Post the video and I will give it a shot, but you are most likely going to need someone there with you to learn anything in that short time.

I actually have footage from today and yesterday. now all i need to do is get it on this website. today seemed very helpful. i was walking to slow and finishing right of where i started. i looked at some old tape of my self at the lesson and i used to walk left which got my hips out of the way. now i was coming back so far it was forcing me to move the ball around my body which was making me loop. i'll be getting some footage up as soon as my girlfriend shows me how.

Back the camera up so I can see your entire body from head to toe and the top of the swing, and shoot a couple shots from behind.

At least you have a tripod and not sitting the camera on the floor.

Your timing is at least a step late. Start the ball with your right foot, and over your right foot and let the ball swing your arm, you are forcing the swing, mostly because of the late timing.
