My Swing (tomvk77)

Firstly, it looks like you are a bit too hunched over shoulders wise. Your shoulders seem pretty far forward but that may be because you have a decent amount of knee bend at address.

 

Two things, you have a small hesitation at the top of your back swing right before your downswing and at the top of your back swing your left elbow is bending severely. I think you can extend a touch more at the top of your back swing for a bit more power. Also, try and keep that left elbow a bit straighter. Not mandatory but it should help you out.

backswing looks great, follow through could use a little more on line, think shakle hands, or take what I say for shit; that's what I would do.

Changed to a My Swing thread because, well, that's what it was.

Your head drops 3-4 inches during your backswing.  Tighten that up and you be good to go.  Don't dip down.

My Swing ( Tomvk77 )

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 15 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 9-10

My typical ball flight is: draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: snap hook, block right

Path looks like it's to far out to the right and your face is a little shut at impact causing your ball to start left of target and draw more.  If your face is a few degrees more shut then you get the huge snap hook.  If you could work on zeroing out your path your misses would be alot tighter.

I think it's interesting how 20-25 handicap golfers are giving swing advice to a guy with a 7 index.

One of the smartest people I ever knew told me a long time ago "Listen to your men. Even the dumbest guy working for you will know something that you don't know".

 

Of course he was talking about on the job but it applies to just about anything...He also should have added that you have to be smart enough to weed out all of the dumb ideas they will also have.

I get the point ms256. if i look at my posts here and comments on other swings, i always try to give them something to work on, a drill.

As a single hdc player i see the things myself, your head dips down in backswing fix it and your ok. Yeah i know .....  if you have a closer look you can see

that when club on impact my head is at the same level as on setup.

I think your swing is pretty good (I would trade with you). My goal for the year is to actually have "a golf swing" instead of a whole bunch of them. I'm tired of shooting 68 one day and 80 the next too many times.

 

I never know when I show up at the course if I'm going to find a combination that works or not. On a good day it works from the start. On an average day I figure out something that's working by about the 9th hole. On bad days I figure it out when I get home after the round.

Right i'm a few lessons further now with my pro.

What we try to do is:

Take away goes fast to the inside, i need to keep the club head outside my hands on take away.

As i do that not only my path is better but it stops me from dipping in also.

we try to reduce the wrist action round impact. fast hands is sometimes good not always.

We try to do that at top off the follow true my left palm should point to the target.

will post new vid soon. waiting for the pro to sent them to me

That is the way to do it...one on one lessons with a local pro. Giving lessons off of a video posted is so damn hard.. You never know if you are sending the right angle..etc.. And the bad thing, if you are off just a fraction in the dtl view. It could be the difference between looking on plane vs being way off. I agree with the left palm should point to the target. Being flippy at the bottom isn't a end all, just hard to time it for us working guys. We all have are own unique swing issues, some u just have to live with..others you can modify

Good swing though
