  2. geast added a post in a topic Shot 74!!! - Small change made big difference   

    I've been trying to change that part of my game too. I spend waaay too much time over the ball, and sure enough hit a bad shot.

  3. geast added a post in a topic Golf glove or no glove???   

    I can't play without a glove on. I need the tackiness, otherwise I fell like I'll send the club flying.

    I've been thinking about wearing two gloves to see if it will allow me to loosen my grip pressure a bit.

  4. geast added a post in a topic swaying instead of rotating!!   

    I imagine "screwing" myself into the ground. It feels like I dip, but in reality my head stays nice and still, laterally and vertically.

  6. geast added a post in a topic Why am I so inconsistent?   

    I started recording videos of my swing while at the range. I was too cheap to spend money for lessons, so recording myself with my point-and-shoot camera was the way to go. I just compared my swing to videos online and started fixing stuff one by one. Granted this is probably the slowest method, but now I know how fix my swing myself.

    Never thought of it that way! It makes a lot of sense and I'll be trying it out this weekend.
