    My Swing (mckaymental)
    I've been Playing Golf for: 4 months
    My current handicap index or average score is: 120
    My typical ball flight is: Inconsistent, low, topped
    The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Looking forward to have more consistent ball contact

    Hi guys! I've started playing golf this season and I'm really having a blast. However, I feel like it's time to fix my swing. I'm having a hard time making good ball contact. My shots are terribly inconsistent. Below, you'll find a quick video of 4 swings (+ slow motion) I made with my 6 iron. I'm sure there's a milion things I'm doing wrong but if you guys can give me some important pointers it would really be appreciated.

    Thanks a lot for your time!
    Have a good one!
