My Swing (Grndslmhttr3)

5 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 9.4

My typical ball flight is: pull fade

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


Videos: It started to get a little stormy, so I was only able to get DTL videos of my driver and 6-iron before the lightning detectors started going off. I suck with cameras, so the quality is a tad blurry, but it should be good enough. Check out those awful impact positions.

As an aside, I actually managed to hit a few baby push draws here and there, which was encouraging. Nothing spectacular but it was an improvement.

Head moves up and away on the backswing, hands also work away from the body. Then the arms lift and the club gets laid off leading to a few compensations on the downswing.

Part of what is causing the takeaway issues is your balance at address. You're kind of leaning forward, typically like to see the arms hanging away from the player slightly, yours is the opposite. It looks like if I was to gently push you from behind you would fall forward.

I would recommend raising the handle (point the butt of the club to your belt buckle) and standing a little taller. I'm not saying to stand with a "straighter" back, just not bend over as much. This thread should help

It's going to feel very awkward at first but this will help you get more balanced at address...

So you can give yourself a chance to make a takeaway with less "complicated" moves.

I'm not sure where I got 7 years from; started freshman year of high school and just finished college so 8 would be a bit more accurate, not that it matters. Anyway, got out for 9 earlier today. Played pretty well, standing more upright and holding the club a bit more upright did feel awkward on the takeaway but I should be get should get used to it quickly enough.

I got out to the range today for about half an hour. I was hitting the ball with a slight push-draw a lot more today (not totally consistent, but Rome wasn't built in a day!). A lot of my misses were just straight pushes but weren't too bad. I still have to focus on raising the butt of the club so it points to my belt; I noticed that on occasion I was bent forward too much with the arms hanging inward. I also think I'm not getting a full shoulder turn (probably like 75-80 degrees; not quite 90); I'm trying not to focus on too many things at once, although it can be quite hard not to! I think I'm going out for 18 tomorrow, so we'll see what happens.
