For the 2 years I have been playing golf I have been swinging up on my irons instead of down which of course has made me incredibly inconsistent. Ive recently begun to try to change my angle of attack. It is VERY hardwork to do but its a must. For anyone else going through this, here is a great video with drills:   http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=derek+hooper+ground+first&FORM=VIRE3#view=detail&mid=AB1E5B3A69B884907921AB1E5B3A69B884907921
At 34 years old, a lifetime athlete who did pretty well in pretty much any sport I tried, I figured I could play golf. The last 2 years have been humbling and frustrating to say the least. I almost quit golf 2x most recently this past 4th of July.   Id like to say I have made some progress. Im always told I have a nice setup and grip but people I play with as well as the couple people I have taken lessons with. My backswing is solid after recently fixing a problematic...
thoughts? Does anyone else do it?   To me it has completely changed my golf game. Im now using it to start my swing and my contact is so much better...
After 7-8 months and probably 15 lessons, I have decided to move on from my instructor. Its frustrating for me as I have spent a lot of money and practice time with this guy as my Coach, but its just not working. I go in there and do the same thing every lesson. I dictate to him the lesson and not the other way around. There doesn't seem to be a plan in place at all. Its hard for my because I am a loyal person and wanted it to work with this guy but I cant wait any longer...
Any near Philadelphia recommend a particular instructor?
I am 1.5 years into trying to figure out a golf swing. Its been a slow process but Im starting to get things down like: Grip, Posture, Takeaway, Backswing,etc     I know its the hardest part but I struggle with my downswing a lot. Specifically my right side tries to take over way too early. This causing flipping through impact for me. I just started working on creating lag. What works best for me is the thought of pulling the butt end of the club down. This has helped...
I just finished up a "round" of lessons with my current instructor. Overall I have had 8-9 lessons with him. First I want to say I really like him and he definitely cares. Although they are only suppose to be "hour" long lessons he stays at least 90 minutes with me each time. And constantly taking money of the price of the lessons because I have stuck with him. He also has all the latest technology. His intentions are 100% all good and I firmly believe that...   Having...
I think I may have stumbled on an issue of mine because of this thread. Everyone here talking about choking down or at least being completely on the shaft. My left pad is hanging over(not completely on the shaft) in my grip. I think this may be a problem and causing some of my control issues. Any ideas what this can cause? I assume I should make the change and get my entire left hand at least on the shaft if not down about 1/4 inch clear of the butt?
I am a little over a year into this fun adventure. It was quite a struggle for a long time but slowly getting improvement. I can hit my wedges and short irons(through 7 iron) pretty well now. Still struggle a good amount with consistency with longer irons and Woods but Im really working hard on it.   No one can call me a bad student. My instructor in my last lesson told me to work on coming from the inside more as I was coming into the ball to steeply(I Guess this means...
I feel like its very slow but progress is being made in my golf swing. I feel like I have the setup/posture/grip areas down pretty good down. I feel like my backswing is solid and on plane. My golf instructor feels like I have one big item to "get over the humpDo". I have a hard time getting the concept of turning all the way through on the downswing and of course the negative reaction to that is I use my hands too much because the club has to get to the ball...
