My Swing (El-Boogie1975)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ learning for 2 years (haven't hit the course yet)

My current handicap index or average score is: Not sure

My typical ball flight is: mix of high and low I guess

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slicing

This was a good hit actually. I hit other one's that sliced to the left. If you have any swing critiques, let me know.

I guess my swing is perfect. Awesome PGA, here I come!

I'm left handed,s o when I strike the ball, most of the time the ball flight is way left. It's happening less with the irons, but it's still there.

 

I'm looking to reduce this and bring the ball flight more right to left, instead of left to left.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback. Really appreciate all the advice I received, it really helped me improve.

Your weight is staying back, as evidenced by your lead (right) foot sliding out to your right, causing you to cut across the ball.  Take a look at the thread regarding Stack and Tilt to see how weight forward can help you with this.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't even feel the weight staying back when I hit it. I was actually surprised by what I saw when I watched it back. I've been working on rotating my hips and getting my back heel off the ground, but none of that happened here.

 

I took another video and it was the same thing. It's funny because when I practice, I don't do that.

 

Thanks for the feedback. I have to pay more attention to the weight staying back thing. Could that be the reason my balls go left a lot?

By all means... weight back means that your clubhead will cut across the ball.  Worse still, it's a glancing blow as your upper body spins, so it'll be a much weaker shot.

I know what you mean.

 

I've had some good hits where I didn't have my weight back and I can tell the difference by what you're saying.

 

I will take a few more swings and record it face on and try to see what I get.

you seemed to pop up quite quickly as you hit the ball,keeping a steady head could help with your consistency at striking the ball. its great to see a nice shot, but a steady head can help produce more good shots but i'm just an amateur bud.

Looks to me that when your making your backswing your moving your weight to the outside of your back foot. Weight transfer should be a bi-product of making a good turn and the weight should turn into the inside of your back foot. Also, shoulders, knees and feet should parallel with target not just feet and clubface. Have someone watch to at address to check this for you. I hope this helps you and good luck!

By the way good job taking your time to learn properly. Its really tough to make big swing changes once you have been playing a while. Check this out and you may be able to get a free lesson from your local PGA pro. http://www.playgolfamerica.com/index.cfm?action=flm   

 

Hope this helps as well and best of luck!

My NEW Swing (El-Boogie1975)

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2 years

My current handicap index or average score is: unknown

My typical ball flight is: not sure, high?

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slicing

 


This is what I'm doing now. The slice is gone for the most part and I'm feeling better about my swing. This was shot during my lesson.

Wow, that's a HUGE improvement over the first video!  Looks like the lessons are paying off! :)

Crazy thing is. This was during the first lesson I ever received. I just listened and let him guide me. He gave me two quick things that just worked and the slice was gone.

Smashin it, big improvement there. The only thing that I'd say is when you start your back swing your wrists and forearms look very loose and weak. The club looks like its wobbling around a bit. Still, good improvement.

Yeah he was telling me to keep the grip loose for the.lesson so he could see what I was doing. I was concentrating hard. Lol.
