Swing Problems

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm a freshman on my HS JV golf team and my handicap is around 14..... Lately(past week) my swing just hasn't felt correct.. I feel like I'm swinging slower, I'm not making enough divots, sometimes j don't make one and I've been hitting shots thin... I really don't know what happened I took 2 days off and I was playing great.. Shooting low 80s for a month and now my swing feels different... Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks

Your a much better golfer than I am but a simple suggestion would be to maybe take a few video's of your swing and post them here. That way people can take a look and see if they notice any issues. It worked great so far for me.

I had the same problem this year. I realized I wasn't taking divots and hitting it then because when I addressed the ball, I set up with way too much weight forward towards the target. As soon as I changed my setup I took divots and stopped hitting thin. 

 

Of course, the answer you'll get to a question like this is... start a thread in My Swing and let us see it!

Yup. http://thesandtrap.com/t/38240/my-swing-video-threads-rules-please-read/0_30

 

Read those rules, then go to the "Start New Thread" tab in the "Member Swing" subforum of the "Practice Range" forum, then carefully follow the rules in red on what to write in the first post, what to title the thread, and don't forget to delete the red text afterwards.

P.S.  I don't think you're suppose to be "not so good with technology" as a 14 year old.  We're supposed to leave that for our dad's and grandpa's. c2_beer.gif  (Just in case anybody is wondering, those mugs have root beer in them ... I'm not contributing to the delinquency of a minor!!!!!!!!)
