My Swing (ohnims)

8 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 2 1/2 months

My current handicap index or average score is: Unkown

My typical ball flight is: Slice

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slicing/topping


Hey guys, I wanted to share my swing and hopefully get some tips.

The outdoor swings are from couple of days ago; and the one from the basement is just today.

I've been trying to shift my weight, but it surely isn't easy.

Sorry for the crappy quality from the basement; I really need to figure something out to film myself.

Thanks in advance!

Oh and by the way, the ball seems to fly really high--too high it seems; regardless of how I swing.

Thanks!

For only starting to play a couple months ago you have some good things going on. For starters i would work on your leg work. Increase the flex in your left leg and decrees the bed in your right leg in your back swing. If you turn properly in your back swing this will help to keep your head more still. At the moment your head and body get behind the ball in the back swing and never get back to the ball which is why your miss is a slice/top. If you look at the Face on View of your outdoor swing take notice to the green box in the background and how your head moves in relation to it. you will notice that your head starts in front of the box and ends up moving towards the green box in the back swing and then stays there in the downswing. We want the head to be still and stay where it starts at in the address position in the back swing and down swing.  Hope this helps

Thank you very much for the valuable tips and the words of encouragement!

It seems so hard to memorize all the things that I have to/shouldn't do, but I guess that's why people say practice makes perfect!

The thing about my back swing is that, though, I was watching a Youtube video and the guy said to straighten the back leg to be able to squat and swing. I don't know if that's something I should be learning right now, but it sure made my back swing a bit more comfortable.

Anyways, thank you so much for letting me know about the head moving; I have completely forgotten about having the head still.

Thanks again!

Try to keep things as simple as possible..each time you work on the swing only work on 1 or 2 things. If you think about every little thing each time you swing a club you wont go anywhere fast. You will see much more improvement in a shorter period of time if you work on something and build on it every time you move froward. Good Luck!!

Golf is hard, but no doubt it is so much fun; especially when I have people giving me valuable tips! Thanks again!

It's been about a month since I filmed my swing.

It seems that I've started having a "booty bumps" :S

I did gain some more yards, but now keeping my left arm straight has become troublesome.

My swing path has changed from slices to a LOT of draws/hooks. I wonder I might benefit from switching to stiff flex? I currently have uniflex.

Thanks for any inputs!

Your swing is looking much better after a month of work!! Good job!! I would say that the reason for the hooks is because the lower body is moving laterally and the upper body is staying back. The upper body need to move a little lateral with the lower body as the arms drop in the downswing. At the moment the hooks are coming from the upper center stating back and the right arm being too disconnected in the downswing which causes the hands to become active in an effort to speed up the club. Make sure in the downswing as the upper center and lower center move laterally the right elbow comes down and into the rib cage so that the arms are connected and moving with the body. I will try to get on a computer soon to give you a visual.

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
