Push Fade (Could this be over the top) Lie angle?

5 posts in this topic

For the past three months, I have been struggling with a push fade and I am stumped. I was doing great towards the end of last season and now I am trying to prepare for this season and all I keep hitting is push fades. I checked my lie angle and they say I need clubs 3 degrees upright. I am assuming because I am coming over the top that is why I hit the ground first with the toe of the club. If you look at my clubs they have wear marks perfectly where the ball is suppose to be struck on the face of the club. I am attaching videos and pictures, really would appreciate any help someone can give that they see I am doing wrong.

When I swing this is what I think, (I am a lefty) right arm against chest, rotate shoulders and hinge wrist. Downswing try to hit my left hip and hit the inside quarter of the golf ball.

Sometimes on my follow through it feels like I struggle to get to parallel like I do on the back swing, it is like I feel like I do not release the club and just hold my hands through impact.

How does my setup look? How about impact?

The ball will fade because the face is open to the path. If your hitting a push fade your path could be ok but your face is open. It might be that your grip is too weak.

In this image the 2 arrows should point to your left shoulder. This will make your grip a little stronger.

turn your hips rather than sliding them laterally, and you will be able to straighten your lead leg, rather than having it bowed at the finish.

dont force your weight transfer trying to hit the ball hard causing the slide.

I tried a few things today, but I felt one move drastically change my ball striker and accuracy today. I am lefty remember but I turned my right/ front shoulder more. When I was taking my swing my shoulder was not getting to or past the ball. As before if it was an angle it was like at 45 degrees, however when I make it feel like it is perpendicular I was hitting all the balls perfectly with a baby draw instead of a push slice. Felt like i gave myself time to get through the swing instead of rush it. I think it makes sense because if I don't finish shoulder turn and swing like I was my shoulders would be open big time at impact. If I make full shoulder turn at impact my shoulders are Parallel to the target line. Let me know what you think Thanks

    • GPS, WHY ?
      You still need a baseline average of your typical distances to go by, and GPS helps you learn your yardages so you know what club to pull in the first place. You "guess" at all of these already. GPS just gives you an accurate starting point to work from. How can you know for sure that you didn't pull the wrong club? This is probably the most important point: distances markers on golf courses aren't always accurate and even if they are, they only give you the distance to the center of the green. They don't tell you how deep or wide the green is, what distance you need to avoid hazards, etc. They also don't help you off the tee, either.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If you have a cell phone odds are that you already have a gps device. All you need do is download an app, some are free, and you now have a gps for golf
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder. Here's a free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mozosoft.rangefinder&hl=en
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
