My Swing (iteeitup)

6 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 35

My current handicap index or average score is: 13

My typical ball flight is: draw

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

Trying new takeaway with early hand set, breaking right wrist early and feeling like the but end of the club is pointing down once hands pass right thigh.  Swing feels really compact.  I have to concentrate on making sure but end of club is pointing at target as I start the swing down my stance line.  I need to work on arm extension at finish but so far, I really feel like I am compressing the ball.

About the only thing I can see is, and I'm No pro, is that you hinge/cock your wrist's to start the takeaway. I can only see you from your knees on up, and these old eyes just ain't what they use to be, so I'll defer to the resident experts re: anything else.

BTW, I strive for a wide takeaway, i.e. 1 piece takeaway.

2 main things:

1) like Hammer 4 said, one piece takeaway. Turn with your shoulders, keep the same position with your wrists for the first few feet of the backswing

2) to stop the pull hook miss, post up onto your left side. this involves sliding your hips SLIGHTLY forward to start your downswing, and then getting your weight all the way to your left foot at impact. If that doesn't help, also feel like you're pulling your right elbow into your side on the downswing and it will help you hit the ball from the inside as opposed to coming over the top.

Thank you - good feedback - I like the feeling of pulling right elbow into side on DS

Hammer 4, the problem for me with the 1 piece takeaway is that my body is turning too early which causes my arms and club to have to catch up.  I also tend to tilt too much at target and lift my arms.

With the early wrist hinge, I feel like my club, arms and body all reach the top at once.  The main feel I have is pushing the club handle down with heel pad of left hand, feeling the but end of club pointing down just past my right thigh.  It felt really handsy at first but now is getting more comfortable.

I have struggled with wrist hinge over the years worked on this with Andy Plumber a fews years ago in Erie, PA with  Dave, Eric, James.

      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
