Yes.. initiating the downswing with the left thumb will lead to casting. Personally, I would prefer to initiate the downswing with a slight hip shift to the front and hip rotation. Due to the torque or twist of the torso created in the backswing, the hip rotation will initiated the motion for the shoulder and arms. As for the rolling of the club after impact, I personally use more on the right hand. Whatever is comfortable for you and works for you - this should be...
Like J_Bone, i will aim directly parallel to the target path; ie 2 feet. That is, one club along the target path and one parallel to it all the way. If you were to have one club aiming at the target and the other (that is your feet) aiming 15-20 yards left of target, you will end up with an open stance.
Welcome to the community, JPV and good luck to your golf....
I think the discussions here is great on this shot from the rough.. it is not easy. My experience is to use a lofted club such as the pitching or sand wedge. Of course, you can also use the 8 and 9 irons. I just cutNpaste the following from my blog. First, set up yourself with an open stance. Align your shoulder, knees, hips and feet to the left of the target while maintaining the club square towards the target. This will give you an open stance. The ball should...
Grazer, I think it is just one of those days.. Take a nice break, relax and enjoy yourself before heading back to the course. Especially so when you are a 2 handicapper. Just fyi, my understanding of shanking is as follows. Shanking is related to standing too close, but even standing further back can have the same problem - like what you have experienced. The actually relation is with the weight loading. Shanking happens mostly when your weight is loaded on your...
Great article and it sure looks very familiar. This may just be the cure to my current problem. Thanks... cheers
This is kind of interesting. I always have the impression that there should be minimal distraction during a golf swing on the course. Thinking too much before a swing can be disruptive. All those training and season of golf swings and thoughts are to be done at the driving range. Thoughts at the course should be minimal when you stand over the ball. Like Murphdaddy, I normally, stand behind and check my target line, visualise the shot, step up and align myself....
It would be good if John Daly can achieve something...
I do not really like the feel of sunglasses but I do wear them everytime I play.. Where I am from, the sun can be hot and bright. This is more to protect my eyes from UV rays and sorts. Sun rays can do damage due to regular exposure. I own a pair of Bolle and a pair of Rudy Project Freeon for golf.
Personally I would prefer Cavity backs. There are differences between the cavity backs of yester-years and the current ones. Nowadays, with the advancement of technology, many cavity backs provide the feels of blades and yet have the forgiveness of cavity backs. I tried the new R7 TP the other day. Well, personally i quite like it.
