My Swing (ohnims)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2 1/2 months

My current handicap index or average score is: Unkown

My typical ball flight is: Slice

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

 


Hey guys, I wanted to share my swing and hopefully get some tips.

The outdoor swings are from couple of days ago; and the one from the basement is just today.

I've been trying to shift my weight, but it surely isn't easy.

Sorry for the crappy quality from the basement; I really need to figure something out to film myself.

 

Thanks in advance!

Oh and by the way, the ball seems to fly really high--too high it seems; regardless of how I swing.

 

Thanks!

For only starting to play a couple months ago you have some good things going on. For starters i would work on your leg work. Increase the flex in your left leg and decrees the bed in your right leg in your back swing. If you turn properly in your back swing this will help to keep your head more still. At the moment your head and body get behind the ball in the back swing and never get back to the ball which is why your miss is a slice/top. If you look at the Face on View of your outdoor swing take notice to the green box in the background and how your head moves in relation to it. you will notice that your head starts in front of the box and ends up moving towards the green box in the back swing and then stays there in the downswing. We want the head to be still and stay where it starts at in the address position in the back swing and down swing.  Hope this helps

Thank you very much for the valuable tips and the words of encouragement!

It seems so hard to memorize all the things that I have to/shouldn't do, but I guess that's why people say practice makes perfect!

 

The thing about my back swing is that, though, I was watching a Youtube video and the guy said to straighten the back leg to be able to squat and swing. I don't know if that's something I should be learning right now, but it sure made my back swing a bit more comfortable.

 

Anyways, thank you so much for letting me know about the head moving; I have completely forgotten about having the head still.

 

Thanks again!

Try to keep things as simple as possible..each time you work on the swing only work on 1 or 2 things. If you think about every little thing each time you swing a club you wont go anywhere fast. You will see much more improvement in a shorter period of time if you work on something and build on it every time you move froward. Good Luck!!

Golf is hard, but no doubt it is so much fun; especially when I have people giving me valuable tips!

Thanks again!

It's been about a month since I filmed my swing.

It seems that I've started having a "booty bumps" :S

I did gain some more yards, but now keeping my left arm straight has become troublesome.

 

My swing path has changed from slices to a LOT of draws/hooks. I wonder I might benefit from switching to stiff flex? I currently have uniflex.

Thanks for any inputs!

Your swing is looking much better after a month of work!! Good job!! I would say that the reason for the hooks is because the lower body is moving laterally and the upper body is staying back. The upper body need to move a little lateral with the lower body as the arms drop in the downswing.

At the moment the hooks are coming from the upper center stating back and the right arm being too disconnected in the downswing which causes the hands to become active in an effort to speed up the club. Make sure in the downswing as the upper center and lower center move laterally the right elbow comes down and into the rib cage so that the arms are connected and moving with the body. I will try to get on a computer soon to give you a visual.
