Willie Mays Hayes!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My handicap has been in free fall. I believe my biggest issue (and I think I confirmed it last night at the range) is that I am not getting off my right foot (I'm a righty). So my swing has become the Willie Mays Hayes golf equivalent. For clarity this is a reference to the movie Major League where this character hits the ball straight up in the air because he is swinging up at the ball. Of course in golf that means you hit the ball fat.

 

My best swing thought to fix it is to pretend I am in the starting blocks and push off hard with my right foot.

 

Anyone else dealt with this and have some suggestions? Sorry I don't have any video right now but you can seriously just watch Willie Mays Hayes swing a few times and you'd get it :)

Yes, make yourself do 20 pushups EVERY TIME you do that. :)
