My Swing (tristanhilton85) - Page 11

post #181 of 189
Thread Starter 

Still working on the same stuff, but I think I'm seeing some improvements. On top of that, I've lost a bit of weight recently (down about 15 lbs so far), which I think has helped things as well.

 

I played with Barrett today at Westin Mission Hills (Gary Player Course) and hit it pretty well. Ended up shooting 80. With that score, I'm now trending at a 9.7, so it looks as if I'll officially be a single digit as of the next revision. Even if my next few rounds aren't all that great, the next three that fall off my index are in my bottom 10.

 

Also, considering I'm still working on the same thing and seeing improvements and all, I think I'm worthy of a "Stupid Monkey" badge. Hopefully @iacas and @mvmac agree.

Good stuff, bud. You deserve it. :beer:

Whats happening here is that you are taking the club so far back, that you end up with all of your weight on your left side, you have no choice but to come back over the top, the other thing is that your lower body and your hips are out of sync with your upper body...  And your club is way past parallel to your target...  Try pre loading your weight on the inside of your right foot and do not let it get outside of your right foot, and allow the weight to transfer to your left side through impact... This may help you sync your upper and lower body up, and with resistance you will feel during your back swing should help you not over rotate your shoulders...

Umm. Thanks. Just so you know, the video you referenced is nearly four years old. A lot has changed since then.

Sorry I need to look at the date of the post, still new to this site so please forgive me for posting on a swing that was four years old... Your swing looks much better, I guess this will teach me to go to the end of the thread...

No problem... I appreciate you trying to help out.

Played today, and it was kinda crappy. Ended up shooting 89. First time out with the GAME Golf... very cool and easy to use. I've tried to use the Looper feature in the Swing By Swing Golf GPS app on my iPhone before, which does something similar to the GG, but it just took too much time, and it wasn't worth it.

 

Here is the round... it's broken up into two 9 hole rounds because my home course currently has the fronts of both courses closed so we're playing the backs....
