1/2 vs 3/4 vs full swing

5 posts in this topic

I finally bit the bullet and sought the help of a PGA teaching pro, and while the first 3 lessons completely destroyed my game (he changed everything for my grip to set up and swing) it looks like during lesson #4 things started to click and all come together.

Here in lies my question.  When practicing my new swing I start out by doing 1/2 swings (9 o'clock position) then 3/4 (around 10-11 o'clock) then full swings (11-1 o'clock).  I have found that with the 3/4 swing I hit beautiful, straight shots about 80-90 percent of the time.  Weird thing is with the 3/4 swings the ball seems to travel just about as far as the full swing.

How much more distance should I be getting from a full swing versus a 3/4?

Thanks,

What's it look like, on video? If you swing like most of us here, your 3/4 swing is probably a full swing, and your full swing is probably too far.

My full swing is also my 3/4 swing. I just can't get the timing right to hit quality shots from any longer than my 3/4 swing. With out the proper timing, my 3/4 distance flies the ball  almost as far as my longer swing.

Your 3/4 swing is probably your full swing.
