Any advice on my drive would appreciated.

Hey guys,

I'm the sixth drive on the pad in this video. Sorry I did not edit to isolate mine out from the rest. I think alot of my problems are in shifting weight/torso and my reachback. As you can see, this hole is slightly uphill. My main struggle are with these types of holes that play longer than what they actually are. Aside from being bundled up and wearing squishy duck boots, hopefully someone can give me some pointers or advice on what I should work on.

330' 340' consistant golf lines. 350' 375' max

I'm throwing a 172 TP sword here.

Thanks for looking

Assuming you are the last one...you aren't bracing through the front side properly, so your whip doesn't have the oomph.

I always get stumped on the term bracing your right side/leg/etc. What does this mean exactly? I mean I think I know. Just keeping your right side tight?

Has to do with your posture and keeping your weight braced through it. If you are jumping back and forth from left to right quickly, you have to keep your posture braced so your weight doesn't tip you off balance, so then you can change direction quickly.

You would fall under the over the front side category described here:
