My Swing (tuffluck)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ I am 29, started playing golf at 6-16, stopped playing completely for 12 years until I was 28.  So I've only been playing recently for about 1.5 years.

My current handicap index or average score is: 95

My typical ball flight is: High

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Fade on the 4i/5i, slight fade on the 6i-PW, but much more controllable.  I'd like to figure out why I'm fading so heavily so I can eventually work a draw.  Also to note, I'm swinging a bit slower than normal in these videos because I've been battling golfer's elbow lately and been trying to take it a bit easier than normal.

You're over swinging - and the club is going far beyond parallel at the top.  It appears your left shoulder turns a hair too much, which enables your arms to keep traveling.  This ultimately leads your left arm to flex/bend at the top, and the club gets off plane.


Remember, you want to keep that left arm straight from start-up, through impact.  The left arm should not bend until your follow through.  A feel for you would be to try making 3/4 swings and re-film yourself.  Keep the left arm straight.


Here is a solid drill for your to try which will clean up your backswing.  If you don't have a piece of string, just do what Stephan does from 0:25 onward in the video.



Here is another video by Jeff which talks about the left arm straight.
