My swing (zebrasinamerica)

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, here's my swing with my driver, Titleist 910 D2 10.5 with a RIP Phenom 60 S and my 7 iron, Scratch SB-1 with R+ Ctaper +1/4"

I've been Playing Golf for: 18 years

My current handicap index or average score is: +1

My typical ball flight is: piercing

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: block right, driver especially


Videos:

Sup, buddy. I have a posture tip to kick off your thread. Here are some examples of golfers who have good golf posture.

And there here's you:

Note that Tiger doesn't have an arch in his lumbar spine. His upper back is more rounded and he has more neck tilt, as do the other examples above.

Add more neck tilt, round your upper back more, and lose a lot of the arch in your lower back. The first two will help with the third one.

You'll be able to view the ball in your central vision, and you'll put less stress on your lower back.

And read this thread when you get a chance. it's the source of those above photos. I think you'll like it a lot. It'll really help clean up some things and make it easier for you to swing the club: Good Golf Posture

Thanks JetFan, Posture is what I'm really trying to iron out right now. I'm about to pull up the thread you posted and give it a read, back on the range tomorrow and I'll take the camera again!!!

got the video up and was able to watch it for the first time when I got home as my camera battery died at the range. I must say while hitting balls I felt like my head was WAY down but with the lack of computer skills I have it looks as if I were to put laser pointers on the frame of my glasses that I would still be about 5 or 6 inches away from the ball and it REALLY felt like I was looking straight down. I also checked my lower back as I have been taking some swings at home trying to get the feeling of tucking my tail bone and I am kind of thinking I just have a big but that is making it look like I'm arching my lower back lol.

These adjustments felt great from my wedge all the way to my driver and I will continue to work them in and make them 100% but I feel like my first adjustment that it went well. I was more balanced through the swing. I felt more "connected" and smoother. I also felt as if I was creating more power with the chin dropping and rounding my shoulders. All in all this was an improving session for sure and the work will continue.

Thanks and here's the new video, the last ball was off the heel as I got a bit close on set up

here's the feedback I got from one of my good friends who is a certified teaching pro in FL about my swing after the posture adjustment

" Swing looks good.  I don’t really know what you are struggling with and what you are wanting to change?  What your miss is? Or What irons you are struggling with.  On your takeaway I see a minor flaw with you breaking your hands back pointing your thumbs away from you which is an unnecessary move but you recover from it nicely.  Coming down on the ball you look like you are in a great position with the butt of the club pointing at the ball or inside which tells me you are coming down on the ball.  If you can get a caddie view or view facing your body so I can see latterly whats going on and what your head is doing that would help me more..  Overall though you have a nice swing.  A lot of your work is going to be adjusting tedious little things.  I would work a lot on your mental game and putting."

      Digestive enzymes especially those products * in the pancreas and small intestine break down our food into nutrients so that the body can absorb them * They are also produced in the salivary glands and stomach but we do not focus on these nucific bio x4  If we do not have enough digestive enzymes cannot break down our food which means that even if youre eating well were not absorbing all that good nutrition has to offer .   http://www.prohealthguides.com/nucific-bio-x4/
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
