I've been Playing Golf for: On and off for 10 years but not played for 6
My current handicap index or average score is: 28
My typical ball flight is: Weak, hacked or big push with sometimes a slice
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Push shots.. I want to get the ball "out there!"
Hi all, noob here who is looking for some decent advice on my pretty shocking swing! Ok so ive been playing golf for a few years but approx 30 rounds over those years, ive not hit a ball in the last 6 years. Ive always been poor but a few years ago i was getting under the 95 mark and was hitting some decent draws an was fairly straight.
Roll on 6 years and all my mates have convinced me to come back out, picked up my first club last week and im instantly hooked, not sure why this time round, maybe its an age thing when you are too old to go out partying every week!
First round - hit 22 stabelford off 28 handicap. Was pretty bad as you can imagine after such an long period of the course. Massive push shots, slices, not getting off the deck.... you know the drill
Second round - confidence shot after the first round hit 16 points! (tld you i was bad :p). Went out with my mates in two 8 balls and basically got ripped the entire round (what are friends for!).
Third round - Decided id spend a couple of days reading up, checking out beginners guide videos for basics. Shot 28 points and ball was being hit slightly better. Decided the driver should stay in my bag so went safe with 6 irons off the tee. 50% of drives went straight but still fell a little weak but was down the fairway so a step in the right direction. Was having trouble getting ball off the deck mind.
So what im looking for is somewhere to start building a swing that wont have me as a laughing stock every weekend, im willing to hit the range every night if i get somewhere i just need some advice where to start! As you can see i have the power off an ant and the arm off a wisp! I have a couple more vids but nothing from the back so will try to get some next time im down the range.
Main issue is the push shot, EVERY shot goes right of some sort, nothing goes left at all !
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
