My Swing (JPK1988)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 4 Years

My current handicap index or average score is: 4.3

My typical ball flight is: Draw, usually lower traj.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: The weak block right.

 


 

 

It's a little more upright and a LOT longer than the last time I took a video (maybe October?).

 

Things I know are wrong:

My elbow flies, it always has.  I played baseball through college, and I've really tried to fix that elbow, but it usually results in me getting to flat.

Its long/past parallel.  This is something that varies for me, went through stretches where it was overly short this summer. I think it has to do with my hand action.

My right foot/hips tend to get "jumpy", (my right knee makes an uncomfortable straightening/fire move that I struggle hard to control) not sure if I'm overactive with the hips or what.  I worked hard to turn not slide.  Still needs alot of work.

 

Alright its my first post ever.  Be gentle haha.

Welcome to the site..

I think to get better feedback you should post your swing from the down the line view and from the head on or front view..

Down the line as has been explained to me is right behind you basically aiming down the target line, with the middle point being your hands and the front is just in front of you looking at you perpendicular to the target line at your hip line in the center of your body..

Just do a quick search on swing recording and you'll see what I'm talking about..

p.s. I am still trying to get the down the line right..

Free flowing swing though , very nice!

I do have this, like I said older (October) from a more DL position. As you can see its gotten a little loose since.. winter will do that.

Anyone?  I know the angles aren't good enough for any in depth analysis.. Did the best I could balancing the forward camera on my phone on the nearest bench or ledge...

 

Ive seen a few instructors or pros who comment on the "my swing" posts. Mvmac iacas? cipher?  Sorry I'm new not sure how it all works.

 

Thanks guys!

Welcome to the forum. Just a quick tip, you're going to get a lot more feedback if you participate in other areas of the forum and people get to know you better. There are a lot of resources here that can help you learn more about the golf swing, and by extension, your own. Here's a good one because you mentioned hip turning: http://thesandtrap.com/t/29616/the-biggest-secret-slide-your-hips

You have a good swing, I'm not surprised that you are a low single digit at all. I'm not qualified to give you any advice and I doubt you'd want it from me anyways, so good luck to you and hopefully others will be able to help you.

Worked hard on getting the club started a little more inside and feeling a little more around, powering the backswing with body rotation and less lift.. Got the majority of balls back to the sweet spot.  Its still feels and looks a little loose and handsy but oh well. Its january.  Was getting a cool pro-tracer type camera effect in the lights too haha.

Just posting a more recent swing here so I could have some progression all in one place.
