    You have no idea how bad I wanted to skip out of
    work yesterday and play a round. I have not hit
    a single shot this year.
  2. Bryan,

    Looks good. You have a pro player there.
  3. I don't expect my American friends to understand this, but hopefully my fellow Brits (and, mayhap the odd Aussie - the very odd Aussie!) will bear me out...

    The final picture shows exactly how a batsman of the very highest class would finish after hitting an on-drive.

    Forget golf, you've got a future international cricketer there!

    Dawg, you gotta work with the lad on his weight shift. He's left his weight on his back foot. If he keeps that up,
    he's be hitting weak slices and worm burners for the rest of his golfing career, just like me :(  .
  5. Fun to see the little guy learning to play THE game. Got to keep the foot on the ground during the backswing. Father might tilt the camera for a verticle to hone in on the budding golfer.

    Photo tip: I would try this sequence in portrait mode.

    Golf tip: He has a little wrist cup in the second photo
    Getting a good weight shift in the 2nd photo, 45 degree hip with a nice full shoulder turn. I would not worry about the left foot coming up right now. Looks like the right knee is locked.
    A little work on weight shift back to the left in the 3rd picture will be a great help.
    I love the 4th photo, but a good weight shift would have the weight on the left foot, it's clear here that all his weight is still on his right foot.

    Let me know and I will give you some drills. But coming from a golf nut, I sure hope you post some more pictures.
  7. ME TOO!! I like to get out and play a few times a year. :)  :)  :) 
  8. I hope so........he could make millions of dollars and I would be his caddy! :D  :D  :D  :D  :D 
  9. He loves to play. He has a long way to go, but he is already way ahead of me!! :D  :D  :D  :D 
  10. Portrait mode? Is that a setting on my D70? If so, I will take some more pictures and get some golf analysis from you guys.

    I plan on taking more shots of him this year. We usually get him with a golf pro to take some lessons during the summer. I am not a huge golfer, but I enjoy getting out a few times a year. His grandaddy is a golf nut too, and plays 2 sometimes 3 times a week when the weather is good.
  11. By the way, the title of this thread should be


    ... not "four"... unless that's the age or handicap of the golfer.
