My Swing (finzfan11)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Contact feels solid but ball starts left and move further left on poor shots. Just wonder if anyone could maybe help me find out why. Thank you

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 5 years

My current handicap index or average score is:9

My typical ball flight is: straight to slight draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  pull hooks

Nice swing. Maybe your on your heels little? Sometimes if you come out of it or don't drop the club enough in the down swing. Does the butt of the club at set up point to your belt. Might help flatten the swing a little. What do you think.

Shots start left because the face is pointed left of the target line at impact -- ie. is closed to the target line. They go further left because the face is also pointed left of the club path -- i.e. is closed to the path.

 

Can't see a lot from the full speed video. You seem to have some early extension (hips go towards the golf ball) in the downswing, which can tend to throw the club path excessively out to the right, but if your normal shots are straight-ish draws then you probably don't have a major path issue. Need to focus on why you lose the face to the left on your bad shots.  

 

Some feels that may help to slow down your rate of closure:

 

-- Left knee stays bent longer into the downswing

 

-- Right elbow pushes more in front of right hip

 

-- Right heel stays down on ground longer through impact.

I have attached a video of my driver swing. This strike was good. Maybe a little tiny pull but pretty straight end ended up about 260 deep. My miss is a push slice with the driver and pulls with my irons. I feel as if I'm making a proper shoulder turn but I'm not sure about the wrist  hinge at the top. Maybe not enough? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

FYI, invest in a tripod. Set it up down your foot line. Its hard to tell clubhead angles from this angle, and the human condition shakes the camera. 

 

1) Less arch in lower back. http://thesandtrap.com/t/56069/good-golf-posture

2) Let the arms hang down more under your chin. Little more arch in the upper back, as before less arch in lower back. 

3) Flare your feet out 20-30 degrees, just a freebie that helps with hip turn and weight forward at impact. Its an easy implement into the golf swing. 

 

You lift your body up BIG TIME. Need to work on a steady head. Again, working on your posture will give you some of this because it will help you rotate easier on a proper incline. Basically you need to stop lifting up, and let your left shoulder to turn steeper. Let your right leg loose flex, your left leg gains some flex. You will feel a stretch in your right side. 

 

 

 

Good drill to feel the the proper shoulder and hip incline. You will notice how his shoulders are much steeper. His right hip has gone back and up. Also notice his posture were his lower back is in neutral (not arched). His upper back is arched, letting his arms hang naturally down under his shoulders (or chin). This drill will get you the feel of how your head stays steady. Once you get the feel of it, you can practice with out a club of getting that body turn correct.

lol beat me to it. Yes the turn is too level to the ground. General measurement for most good swings is that the players turns at about a right angle to their address inclination. What the player in the right pic is doing

 

 

 

 

Like @saevel25 said, flare both feet out, will help the hips and shoulders turn on a steeper slant.

 

The information in this video will also help. You need more "bend" in your swing. Left knee, hip and shoulder will feel like it goes down much longer on the backswing.

 

 

 

 

Also as @saevel25 said, have the camera aimed down your stance line, yours is down the target line. Makes the club head look like it goes back and approaches the ball much more inward than it actually does.
