Help!

3 posts in this topic

I just recently got back from a 2 week trip to California, and consequently my golf game took a hold as well. I was hoping for some advice ... Before the trip, my swing was great and I was shooting in the high 70s. However, I've been struggling since I got back with either not hitting the ball solid with irons (weak fade shots) and hitting the ball high on the face with the driver (again, with a weak fade). I have never really hit the ball high on the face before - do you guys have any ideas as to why that's happening? Maybe there's a correlation between the weak iron and high face hits with the driver?

I actually just had a lesson too, and I was hitting great shots the entire time. So, I kind of wasted the lesson I suppose. I was working on basically feeling like I was swinging to the left after I hit the ball. This would hopefully encourage a squarer hit, without falling back on the downswing and hitting that fade I was talking about ... I kept trying to do this today and it wasn't working out too well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

maybe your overdoing it? one my pro's told me ages ago that i should swing with my left hand, i started hitting it about 20-40yds shorter and push fading it, needless to say i dropped this coach.

When I hit the drive high on the face, it's always a straight high pull which would be opposite of you.  So, taking my extensive knowledge of physics into the answer, I'm thinking you're you're swinging slightly flat with the face a touch open.
