I've been Playing Golf for: 1 1/2 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 110
My typical ball flight is: High fade/straight
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Lack of distance with irons
I hate asking for help, but not doing well on my own. There are a lot of swing flaws here but just trying to fix key #2 at this point. I can't seem to get my hips forward with a full swing (top). I worked on it last night with a drill from 5sk and thought I had it (bottom). Went out today with video and was making the same spastic move with my lower body. I think my old swing is just taking over. With a half swing there's some shift, but with a fuller swing I lose it. Has anyone had this problem? If so, how did you fix it?
I'm getting good distance with my 4 hybrid (180-190) and 5 wood (190-200) but lately less than 150 yds with my 5 iron. The iron shots are consistent, just really short. I believe forward weight shift along with more shaft lean will provide a bit more distance.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
