My Swing (PJay81)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

I had one chance to film my swing at the range the other day and it ended up being a push and it truthfully wasn't my average swing at all but I'd like to post for some feedback :)

 

Usually I like to go for a low fade and can carry about 270-280 yards.

I am currently working on my backswing from being way too past parallel and my spine angle during downswing. Also, I'm 6'2.

 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ started when I was young but after a huge break started again this summer

My current handicap index or average score is: 11 handicap

My typical ball flight is: low fade

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

Couple ways you can go to help things.  I'm going to give you a couple things to clean up the backswing that will hopefully have some positive effectives on the downswing.  

 

At address, turn both feet out around 25 degrees, also allow the knees to point out a little, like the pic below.  Then on the backswing feel like the left knee flexes over the left foot.  It will rotate inward somewhat but that will be your feel/visual.  This will help the hips/torso to turn throughout the backswing and turn on a steeper angle.  This will make it easier for the weight to get forward on the downswing and help with the arms lifting.  Right now, the hips stop turning, shoulders turn too level so the arms have to lift.  From there you open the shoulders too early and straighten the left knee too early, sending the path too far across the ball.

 

You could even put a tee or glove under your left arm pit to help sequence the arms with the torso.

do you have another view. to me id probably say shorten that backswing. Because It seems you are rotating so far that your weight is going from your right foot to your back left shoulder area from set up - so rear left at :24 secs. perhaps start your hips in your downswing a sec quicker and delay ur upper body.

 

im just a hack though and idk what im talking about..its just my humble opinion .

 If you fix the backswing, you'll be less likely to early extend as much

Which will be easier to do with what I suggested rather than just trying to make a shorter swing.
