My Swing (BigDaddy_Sean)

5 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 25 years, 38 years old.  Competitive High School and College level.

My current handicap index or average score is: 5 hdcp, was once a 1.

My typical ball flight is: high draw

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

OK, the drop kick hook is related to my club head getting to the ball before the hands do, I release early on the downswing.  The angle looks great until here, the shaft bend is obvious rolling shutter effect.. I've always been told for being 6'5" and 370 lbs I have a great swing.. it's just that release point that kills distance.  Average swing speed 102 - 105 MPH.  Any helps or tips greatly appreciated!

The drop kicks are coming from the left shoulder elevating too soon and the head tipping back slightly.

I would recommend this drill, arms coming down while you maintain your shoulder slants. Almost going to feel like you "karate chop" with your left arm.

Thanks,

I was told by another teaching pro I sent this video too that I reverse weight shift on the back swing, I see it there, I start my forward slide with about 1/8th of the backswing still to go, resulting in the head dipping back and putting more weight on my right side through impact.. will the drill you showed help fix that as well?  He mentioned to pause a little on top, work on rotation instead of slide on the downswing then all will fall into place.. it looks like this karate chop drill might work with that as well.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a reverse weight shift, I just think you can turn a bit more on the backswing, pivot looks "restrictive". I would experiment with turning the right foot out at address and see if that frees up your turn. I think this can improve your sequencing and you won't "need" to crank that left shoulder upwards so soon.

Oooh good tip. I am having trouble turning with my weight.. My shoulders are huge and I don't have the rotation I used to 40 lbs ago, lol. Working on the weight loss which will help more.. But will take this too the tee today when I play.. The right foot out tip is a quick one to take to the course..
