I have been fighting a hip/shoulder spin out for a while. Problem keeps showing up, especially in driving range practice or when tired. Tried weight inside left foot. Helped for a while. What really seemed to work is to think of belt buckle facing ball or behind at impact. This works for me but is very contradictory to most instructions out there advocating active hip rotation. Just curious of thoughts out there on this more passive hip approach.
I agree that this is annoying. Some people can give advice and it is ok. What I really dislike is when u get advice before u even hit shot. Some arrogant people think they are the only ones that know what they are doing. Takes u out of focus of how u know how to play shot as it works for u.
I have the exact problem when not hitting well. My main thought to correct is to keep my lead shoulder strong at impact. I say it often enough that one of my playing partners knows to remind me. The other thing that helps is to start downswing with arms. The real problem seems to be the left shoulder getting ahead of the swing. If u stand at address and turn left shoulder out u will see the clubface open and direction facing left causing out to in swing.
Shot a 92. 49 on front 43 on back. Par 69 course. Two really bad holes lead to high score. Did drive ball well. Had one birdie and pared last two holes on positive side.
Stargaze kind of thinking he is dishonest in other aspects of life. Has trouble keeping jobs etc.Not a desired feature of a friend.
I have kind of the same swing thought for success. I call it keeping my lead shoulder strong at impact. Basically the feeling of stopping my left shoulder. If I overdo it a hook will sometimes crop up. For the most part results are much better than letting the shoulder fly open. If u stand at address and rotate your left shoulder u will see the Club face open up ...slice position.
Mv other buddies do play with him... we mostly role our eyes laugh and move on. Seems to bother me more than most. I think because I know his real personality.
I HAVE A FRIEND WHO CHEATS HIS WAY THROUGH ENTIRE ROUND. IMPROVES LIE ON ALMOST ALL SHOTS IF THINKS HE CAN GET AWAY WITH IT. MOVES BALL SOMETIMES 4 FEET TO HIT AROUND OBSTICLES WITHOUT TAKING STROKE. SEEN HIM DROP BALL OUT OF POCKET AND SAY "HERE IS MY BALL". CASUALLY DROP BALL A FOOT IN FRONT OF BALL MARKER ON GREEN. IT GOES ON AND ON. ALSO BRAGS ABOUT SCORE AFTER ROUND. AT POINT WHERE I AVOID PLAYING WITH HIM IF POSSIBLE. ANY THOUGHTS.
Ok ball for price IMO. I prefer Srixon soft feel. Similar Two piece ball I get a little better performance Out of. Don't want to give more advice than u probably get already but keeping my lead shoulder Down at impact fixed most of my fat shots.
New soft feels come in yellow. Great ball for the price. I am not a super hard swinger. Get good distance in all temps. Works as well as some three piece balls I have tried.
