My Swing (tye203)

10 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 4 months

My current handicap index or average score is: HC index is 9.5 or average score is 50 I play 9 holes mostly. I shot a 48 at the orchard in milford ct and the lowest i shot is a 44 at the same course. Par is 32 at this particular course mostly par 3's and 4's.

My typical ball flight is: depends i am starting to get it higher

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: My irons are the most inconsistent for me. My driver and 3 wood are great off the tee.

I think getting fitted and changing the lie on the club head will help me with ball flight. i compared it to my coworkers today who got fitted and can tell the difference. I had a guy who gives golf lessons also tell me fitting changes a lot. Im not very flexible and my swing feels stiff. its like im not comfortable. Thanks for any feedback or help.

First I want to say congrats on the my swing thread, you have officially become addicted and most likely will need to seek therapy very soon!!!! All kidding aside, nice beard you got there!!!!! Ok.. Back to the swing.. 1. Take a look at the grip thread, you are holding it in your palms too much and you aren't really getting the sequence of the swing correctly yet! Basically it makes it harder for you to correctly hinge your wrist and pivot.. Check out the grip thread and the centered pivot thread as well! 2. Just touch up on the stance by flaring your feet about 20 degrees each, this will also help with the pivot! This game is addicting indeed and I can't wait to see your improvement! Just stick with it, if you have any questions please feel free!

Watched both videos. #1 was a pretty easy fix and made sense once I watched it. #2 is really hard to duplicate #3 my feet was an easy fix The pivots point without my feet moving is very tough. I think I need lessons to fix it I'm a very feedback in the moment oriented person. An hour with 100 golf balls is probably what I need. I will be practicing in the yard though. Lol I do think a fitting will help with ball flight

Welcome to the site man! For 4 months you have a really good start...good posture, athletic tempo.

I also agree with the stuff @Abu3baid said for sure.

I'd get a lesson or two just to get you started, then like you said, reps reps reps.

These videos are super helpful too... http://purestrike5sk.com/videos.php

    • TST Member Review - The Tee Claw
      Product Name: The Tee Claw
      Product Type: Tee Holder for Golf Mats
      Product Website/URL: www.teeclaw.com
      Cost: $15 Ratings (out of 5):
      Quality: 4
      Value: 4
      Effectiveness: 4
      Durability: tbd
      Esthetic Appeal: 4   Link to Discussion Thread   My Member Revie I was able to take the Tee Claw to one of our open local ranges on Sunday. As stated above, I cut down a few tees ahead of time to the right height so I wouldn't have to do it at the range. I set the Tee Claw in the mat below then put my driver next to it to get the right height. This mat is an All Turf mat, which is similar to the Real Feel mats with a little less dense weave. The mat is made of woven fibers. At the range, the first thing I noticed was this range has two types of mats; a cheap imitation turf mat where the rubber tee goes and a tighter weave mat. The Tee Claw had no issue with the woven mat, but would not grab the cheap mat fibers. The video below shows this. The cheap mat only has fibers that run vertically and are not woven together. Undaunted, I used the woven mat for the test. I set the Tee Claw up with just one lanyard pulled straight back. This distance is about 30 inches. I hooked the tee under the mat with a tee as is suggested in the Tee Claw site video. The tee fits snug into the Tee Claw base. I used my driver to test the set up. The Tee Claw moved after the shot, but the tee stayed in place. I was worried that I would lose the tee, but this didn't happen. This will save on tees if this happens routinely. I took three swings with this set up. The Tee Claw came loose after the shot, but stayed on the mat.
      Next, I set up the Tee Claw with two lanyards. The second lanyard was set up as a guide for my swing path. This will come in handy as a training aid.
      After hitting, the tee stayed in. The Tee Claw moved. You can see below, it recoiled and twisted a bit. It took a few seconds to untangle it and set it back up. If you are the kind of player who rapid fire hits balls, this may get annoying. But if you are like me and take your time, the extra set up time is not an issue. If I am doing slow motion drills, I would use the rubber tee. But once I am hitting to observe ball flight, I would use the Tee Claw instead.
      Lastly, mats seem to be the key for the Tee Claw to work. Good mats with a weave work the best. I have two mats at home, the All Turf mat I showed above and one I got when buying a Birdie Ball net. They are below. I apologize for not cleaning the dead grass off the mat! It was cold out. The Tee Claw had no issues with either of these mats. I would take the mat type into consideration when you purchase the Tee Claw.
      At $15, the Tee Claw is not a big investment and worth the money for being able to set your tee height while practicing on mats. I've resorted to cutting down rubber tees to the right height before, but this is a better way. Try it out!

      I can't recall ever quitting for a reason other than rain.  And I will play through a certain amount, especially if I have a cart with a windshield.
