Saevel, thank you for that picture comparison and the explanation...it is now easy to see. I will work on it some this weekend and hopefully get some more video to post.   Unfortunately I haven't been able to load that video showing the steady head drill, but I will keep trying when I get a chance.
Interesting...I had been quite hunched over before, and pretty close to the ball as well. However, I had been very inconsistent, and upon finally getting some video of myself, it looked like a very non-athletic stance and I seemed to be crowding the ball. My right knee was pretty much locked on the backswing, and I was told I was overswinging. Plus, I had been hitting some very fat shots. I tried standing closer to the ball today but ended up digging into the ground a lot....
Hi all-   I've posted a few times on here before, and now I've finally gotten around to posting my swing in the Member swing section. I have been recording my swing every time I've been to the range over the last several weeks, and it is really helping to see what I'm doing right or wrong. For anyone who would be so kind to take a look at my swing, here are some of my observations.   - Just about everything I'm hitting currently is starting right and traveling fairly...
I've been Playing Golf for:​ 10+ years on and off (more frequently over the last few years) My current handicap index or average score is: avg score just over 100 My typical ball flight is: high, push or push/slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: short, high push     Videos:
I have been pretty good about taping my swing at the ranger over the last few weeks, and one thing I have noticed is my head seems to be moving forward too much as I shift my weight, and I think this is partly responsible for my poor impact position (not much spine tilt, hands not ahead of ball). This is quite apparent after watching videos of Tiger and seeing how still he keeps his head as the rest of his body moves forward. Any tips on how to keep my head back while...
Well I found a used 51* golfsmith wedge for $15 so I think I will play around with that a bit and maybe just forgo the lob wedge for now (I'm playing 18 today and tomorrow). I've had to work on my full swing so much earlier this year, but now I finally have the luxury to get back to working on the short game, so I'll keep trying all different kinds of shots with the wedges. Just curious, for those that carry 4 wedges, do you use a hybrid to replace both 5w and 3i? I have...
Hello Sandtrap,   I have been working on hitting my wedges lately (54* sw and 60* lw) in an effort to build some consistency in my 100 yd and less game. I have practiced various shots off of fairway and rough, and I have noticed I hit my sand wedge with much more consistency in terms of loft and distance, generally about 70-80 yards. However, I can't seem to hit my lob wedge quite as well...when struck properly, it probably travels about 40-50 yards, but I often...
Hello everyone, I have been trying to work on my swing again this year and I have been getting decent results from my irons, but woods have been a completely different story. I tend to hit high on the ball with my woods, usually resulting in an ugly ground ball...if not that, then I have an ugly snap-hook that takes off way left and barely gets off the ground. Is there any reason (or number of reasons) that my results from my woods are so different from my irons?
Thanks to everyone for the info.  I think I'll take it slow and work on pitch shots for a while and work back up to full swing.  Perhaps I'll invest in a camera, as that sounds like a great way to work on things by myself.
Hi everyone,   I am new to this site and I was hoping I could talk to a few people that could convince me I can fix my swing and not walk away from the game.  I am 26 and have played recreationally for about 15 years.  I am 6'0", 190 lbs, and in good shape.  However, I have never had any consistency in my game and have battled a slice for a long time.  I have been practicing more over the last few years and taken lessons from pros as well as instruction from a local...
