Hit Down Dammit.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Has anyone bought the videos and/or dvds? Would like to get some feedback on it. Looks like a pretty good teaching. But the videos are almost 90 bucks so it's kind of a plunge without hearing something about it.

Yes, I just did my first set of DVD Drills yesterday. 
My background:
-Started Golf mid 20's

-Got down to a 12 handicap early thirties (played 3x week)
-Hit a ball with no divot (when I'm on, very long and high draw)
-Huge overswing, past parallel
- hit off of mats - Caused me to not hit down

-Had kids

-Now play 3x per month. I still try and "scoop" the ball which needs incredible timing, which i don't have anymore b/c lack of playing time
-found Hit Down Dammit through web searches in trying to make a divot

Initial thoughts:

-Buy the dvds on ebay for 1/2 price. There is a lot of duplicated content across the 4 dvds

-making a divot feels weird, but I'm making good contact
-could be a good way for me to shorten my swing (I've been trying for 2 years)
-Take a lot of 1/2 swings and follow the drills
-I do think that 90% of average golfers do not "hit down", they try and scoop.
-My wrist is a little sore, but some ice fixed it right up

Hope that helps.

I'm new to golf but according to my studies when the ball is on the ground hitting down on the ball, the ball leaving, then taking a divot is the only way to hit a good golf shot. I have a marker next to my ball when I'm on the range and I work to make sure I take my divot past where the ball sat, never before it. You're supposed to swing down at an angle somewhere between 15 and 20 degrees.
