question on my swing s&t

6 posts in this topic

I took a video, but i don't have a way to post it because i live in the boonies with no internet. A few things i noticed right away. My head stayed still right up to the end of the backswing. However, at the very end, it looks like my shoulder coming around pushes my head away from the target a few inches. I also noticed that right after impact, my arms both almost immediately begin to break down and bend. What is the best way to this these issues. I think holding my head up a little higher would fix the first thing, but I'm not sure easy to do about the breakdown

I try to use a S&T; (centered pivot) type swing ... wouldn't worry too much about maintaining perfect centered head position - as long as you're head is fairly well centered & you're not swaying back & transferring a large percentage of weight rearward, that shouldn't be too big of an issue.     As for folding arms too early on the follow through ... think of it as reaching forward with your arms - really focus on creating a "long" swing feeling.    The natural tendency is to  reach forward to the right of center - try to come through straight (closer to your body) - if I come through too far right, it creates a hook.

As you swing down from the top try squeezing your elbows together all the way to the finish. This may help.

YMMV.

If the path is hard left, and you aren't putting the extension pieces in, then you are going to remain in flexion and chicken wing your arms all day long. Read some of the posts regarding raising your hips, straightening your legs, extending lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine, and you should then be able to keep those arms straighter a lot easier.

Holding your head up higher is not a good thing either, work on your neck tilts at address, eyes down, ball in the centre of your view, not peering down over your cheeks to see the ball. That should help your shoulders work steeper and not move you off the ball like you mention towards p4.

Make sure your stance at address is stable and sustainable throughout your swing.

Make sure your weight is center between the balls of your feet and your heels at address

Try not to hunch, or slouch...back straight bend at the waist.

Try not to slide off the ball to much one way or the other.

Shoulders leveled, relative to the target line, at impact

.

Do all this without feeling tense or strain....relax.

.

Probably you've heard all this before.

As you get better, it becomes more comfortable.

Little things do matter... Thats golf.

Don't give up. Keep playing.
