My Swing (James Tupper)

7 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: around 2 months

My current handicap index or average score is: I've never played. (only driving range / into my net)

My typical ball flight is: It seems pretty average. Not entirely sure.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: When I mishit, they go left normally.


I first picked up a golf club 2 months ago and have yet to play a hole (so I don't know my handicap).  I just want my swing to be good enough so when I do go out, I'll have some fun and not get frustrated / feel like an idiot.  The biggest thing I'm trying to tackle now is getting my swing plane tighter.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here is an updated video of my swing. I'm finding my practice swings to feel very smooth and effortless, but when a ball comes into play, that all changes.  I tend to lose my spine angle a bit on the down swing and I that's the main thing I'm working on.

If anybody has any pointers for me (especially on replicating my practice swing with a ball), I'd appreciate it.

Wow thanks.  Yeah my setup posture looks a lot less relaxed than most others.  I bet it would be a little easier to keep my spine angle if I stood up a tad straighter.

Update: I'm working on a little less knee flex and keeping my head facing the ball at address.  Any critiques would be appreciated.
