What are the strong points of her swing, and what are the weak
points, and what does she need to do to make it better?

Set-up: Standing to straight up and down, should be tilted more with a slant away from the ball. Turn head back more to start.

TakeAway: Moves the club back with her arms. Go to more of a "one piece" takeaway. Her hands are in front of her trail thigh, but her shoulders have barely moved

Action: After that it is just all arms to TOS and back down. She needs to train with The BluePrint/Bertholy for imprinting the absolutes found in all fine swings. By the time her hands are in front of her trail thigh on the DS, she has lost all angle between the lead arm and the shaft.

To make her swing better she needs to spend some time building habits that will improve her overall action - from beginning to end. She needs "A Blueprint For Golf Excellence - Building A Swing You'll Never Forget"

She must be very flexible to get so much extenion in the BS without
much sholder movement.
I wonder if she were to swing back more to the inside if her
shoulders would become more involved in the BS.

I have never seen anyone move the club back down so far
before her lower body moves any.
She has good extension on thru the ball.
Looks like she has a lot of natural ability and could be a
really good golfer if she had the Blueprint for golf execelence.

Very funny. She is a High School girl i think- maybe she plays
on the school team. Despite the flaws in her swing, i bet
she hits the ball pretty well.

Now if she was a High School girl from the class of 1973,
she could be my - na, she is too hot for me.

almost a perfect Trahan swing, straight up and down with 3/4 shoulder turn, hip bump and straight up follow through

ams that move the club that far before any lower body movement. That is a big part of why the predominant am ball flight is a slice.

and bends her lead arm to get the club into position at the top of BS (which seems to be a uniquely female AM type of BS.) She uses very little if any shoulder or hip turn in either the BS or the DS.

Teenage/female and flexible are synonymous terms. This video does not demonstrate any type of natural golf ability to me, which isn't to say that she doesn't posses ability. It's a typical powerless, arms only casting type of swing that you'll see from any young person who hasn't trained to be a good golfer. If this were a teenage male with the same level of training, you'd see a more violent over-the-top move with the shoulders in the DS in an effort to hit harder.

Really? Can you post a couple. I can't seem to do it.
Thats a good thing right Peter?

Some pro has a drill where you swing to the top
and you try to hold your lower body and your shoulders still while
you try to swing your arms freely down and thru the ball
to get the feeling of a free arm swing thats not dominated by
the shoulders and the results were usally a draw or hook.
I think it is Kostis or Flick or one of the arm dominate type teachers.

What are the differences in the two two simular movements
where one causes a slice and the other a hook? not pull hook.

The young lady has some obvious flaws in her
swing that anyone here can see, but her swing looks better
than most of the swings i have seen, and may even look better
than some on this formum . Looks good dosn't always mean hits good.

She does lift her arms on the BS and bends her lead arm
near the top, but not nearly as much as most girl ams do.
She dosn't pick the club up abruptly and break her lead arm early,
and if she had a good shoulder turn she would have awsome extension
on the BS. You can tell she does not chop down on the ball like she is trying to
kill a snake because she has good extenison in the follow thru
leading to a good finish position.

To me this shows some natural ability if she is a beginer
without much instruction.
If she has played for years and had a lot of lessons, then one
might be more critical of her swing- though it still looks
good to me.

With a few changes and additions to her swing, i think
it would look really good.
Whether she will be able to hit the ball really good
is something else, but i would think she could.
I think Mac could do a lot with her.
