My Swing (WillM)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ Since I could stand on my own two legs

My current handicap index or average score is: 80-85

My typical ball flight is: Cut that gets more pronounced as the clubs get longer, flight itself is pretty good, piercing, good launch angle, etc.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: The Cut/Fade/Slice.

 


I have been playing golf my whole life and have just gotten serious about it. I also have had this slice for my whole life and I have improved it steadily over the years but now I have hit a wall which is extremely frustrating. Hank Haney said the only way to become a better golfer from a slice is to work to a hook and then from there to a good golf shot... I would like to eventually be able to shape shots but if it could just go straight, I would be perfectly happy. Any glaring things in the swing I am missing? Any tips or drill? Thanks!

I am gripping EXTREMELY down because of a low ceiling. I do not normally grip that low. I grip the golf club like a normal person. As far as neutral/strong/weak though, that is how I normally grip, if it makes a difference.

It's pretty tough to see what's going on unless you're hitting real balls. My own practice swings (sadly) look a lot different than my actual swings. I think you'll get a lot more feedback if you post a swing from the driving range.

Agreed... everyone has good looking practice swings :)

Sliding your hips instead of turning hence your shoulders dropping and popping out on the other side to compensate your power!

 

And because of your sliding you cant close the club face as fast as your hips hence your wrist flipping upon impact which WILL cause a bad hook when you figure out the proper shoulder/hip turn.

 

Power should come from your leg/hips lastly.  TURN.

I disagree.

 

And it's a practice swing - let's see a golf ball being struck.

I also disagree. Opening the hips keeps the clubface open if anything, because the arms aren't in the right position at impact. Turning too much doesn't get the arm in front enough of the chest, giving the hands time to close the face into impact.
