I've been Playing Golf for: 15 years (competitively for 2.5)
My current handicap index or average score is: 0.5
My typical ball flight is: Draw
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: the block and misses off the toe
I am always trying to gather more information about the golf swing so whatever you can share helps!
Here is my swing down the line.
I have worked to get more upright in my setup and am pretty pleased with where it is now. My takeaway is normally pretty clean, but for some reason this one is a bit under plane. It is the most recent one I could find. Once I get to the top of my backswing I hate almost everything after that......... Currently my teacher wants me working to get my left arm closer to my body at impact to stop my hands from releasing independently of the body.
The two things I want to fix most are my transition at the top of my backswing and the way my lower body works in the swing. I used to be a baseball player so it is a bit out of wack... Notice how severely my left foot rolls before I even get to impact? I don't know what to do about that but it frustrates me beyond belief. I fall to my heels and my head moves all over the place and there are some days where I am frankly surprised I can hit a golf ball. Good hand-eye coordination I guess. Anyway, that is my main complaint. Transition is a little ugly but I can live with it.
Seriously though, compare the way my left foot moves to basically every other pro out there (except maybe kinda Spieth) and it definitely does not look the same... On some swings I can't hold my balance I roll so far. It can't be good for my foot either.
Also. This video has a swing which is more laid off at the top. I can go between across the line and laid off, as well as neutral, pretty easily. I have a good sense of where the club head is so I can basically make it look however I want. My question is, what works best? My teacher wants me across the line just a tiny bit but I feel like I can't hit a cut/fade out of that position if I need to so I have kept it more laid off. Thoughts? This is maybe a more personal style thing? Tiger was successful with both... then again he was Tiger Woods.
I mentioned misses off the toe. Those usually happen with the longer clubs, about 5 iron and higher. It is quite frustrating to have 200 yards in and leave it 30 yards short because I can't hit the ball pure... My guess is this will fix itself if some one can help me figure out a good drill for my lower body, just thought I would mention it is only with longer clubs.
Last thing, my club comes out a bit low in the follow through at times but again, I think that will improve a lot if I get my lower body working the right way.
Here is my face on swing:
Not too many things to say here, this video is about a month and a half old. I don't get the chance to film FO very much. Maybe a little under rotated with the upper body. I create a good amount of lag... Not much else I can think of. I've made a few posture adjustments since when this was taken but that is it.
Who ever responds, thank you for taking the time to analyze this and provide feedback.
