My Swing (MasonAsher2014)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 14 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 5.6

My typical ball flight is: HIGH

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: in between draw/hook

 


 

Videos:

A couple of things:  Either you are Spider Man and that is the most severe sidehill lie ever ... or your video came out sideways.  c2_beer.gif  It's kind of hard to watch.

 

Secondly, it's better if you "embed" the video instead of just posting the link  (all you have to do is click on the little film icon at the top of the dialog bog and paste it in there), that way we can watch it right here.

 

Lastly, the instructors will all tell you that they don't like giving tips to people based off of practice swings.

 

(From what I can tell, your swing looks nice though :))

OK. I will retake a video of actually hitting the ball. and I will embed. I also will turn Spiderman power off.

What's your miss?

 

Couldn't hurt to turn your right foot out and free up your hips turn. Or at least not have the knees rotated inward at address. Notice how your torso turn is about 90 degrees, and that's with a driver. You don't turn enough and creates some issues with how your arms load. Would be interested to see a dtl swing.

I will start flaring out a bit. I just realized that I haven't been doing that. I'll get a few dtl posted tomorrow. My miss right now is a push fade but I have been hitting a light draw and hitting right at 10 fws a round my last 5 rounds.

 How do you guys think these look? @mvmac here are some DTL

Better.

 

- Make sure the knees aren't pinched inward.

- Keep turning while keeping the pressure points in place. Will make sure that when the pivot stops, the arms also stop. Important for when you start moving into the downswing stuff.

Interesting video, am I turning my lower body enough? And my main concern, how does the grip look?

Would like to see you turn the hips more.

 

Tough to tell about the grip, video is dark. Earlier video looks like the right thumb is on top of the grip.

I would agree my hip turn is probably not enough. I will try and start turning them a bit more.
