My Swing (Techforay)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been Playing Golf for:​ 15 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 95
My typical ball flight is: left to right slice
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: My slice 

Thank you all for looking at this.  I would welcome any advise.  By the way I am hitting plastic golfballs.  My neighbors dont hate me.

Hard to tell much about your plane without a down the line shot.  I would try to work on getting your left wrist flat at impact- do a search from some threads/drills.

Sorry I attached a down the line but it went away for some reason

You sway away from the target on your backswing. In fact, your head moves back the entire span of one of those slats on your porch. From what I can see, you actually gain knee flex in your right knee, try straightening it as you turn back. You want to feel your weight more centered at the top as opposed to loaded up on your right side. Because your hips moved away from the target back, when you shift your weight forwards, you are only returning them to about where they started at address as opposed to several inches forward. This causes you to cast just to make contact with the ball.

to elaborate on the casting Billchao referred to, your first move on your downswing is over the top which gets you going outside to in- with a slice resulting from swinging across the ball.  Correcting your plane will likely have you feel like your hands are dropping or re-routing to the inside on the downswing (but this will likely just mean less of an over the top move).  

 

If look at your head, it actually move forward at the beginning of your take-away then sways back.  Not sure what you have been trying to work on, but if it is a steady head, it may be that at the beginning of your back swing you are trying not to move it back off the ball (and are actually over doing it in the other direction), then losing control of it and swaying back.  As BC said, keeping the hips more centered on the way back and then driving them forward may help to reduce the over the top move and keep you on plane.
