My Swing (The Youngblood)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 7 Months 

My current handicap index or average score is: 12

My typical ball flight is: Draw 

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pull hook and Regular Slice (when I try to fade it like this video)

My problems are: As pictured I lift my back foot before impact which i have discover will cause problems. Also I have a tendency to go past parallel on my back swing (especially on my driver). I did a better job in the video of not going past but it takes alot of thought not to do that. In the video I was try to hit a cut because the wind was so right to left. Besides that I would love to here about other members thoughts, I consider myself a student of the game and will take all the help I can get

You have been playing for 7months and your handicap is 12? Isnt that really good?

Anyways I cant really comment much on your swing, looks pretty solid to me and looks like your taking decent divots. Just your club seems to be coming a bit over the top and across the ball but then I read the description and it says you were trying a fade? so you were meaning to do that?

Only other thing I think you want your shoulders coming open more at impact.

Yeah I fell in love with it and work pretty hard at it. I also have some friends that play out here who played in high school so they help me some. I was try to hit a fad and hold it against the wind since I draw most of the time if the wind blows from right to left my draw turns to major hook. I think I was probably slicing pretty bad in hindsight. About the shoulders, what does opening them help do?

well when I was explained about my back foot coming up to early they said get the feeling that your shoulders open before impact (Just the feeling of that) and that can settle down your lower half and make you turn into the ball instead of bumping into it.

 

But trust me Im still completely learning so dont take my posts to serious let someone who knows what they are talking about comment on it haha.

But thats what i was told to settle my back foot and it seemed to help.

Your posture is off. Try to take that curve in the lower back out. Its hidden by the hoodie, but you can see the arch when you take your backswing. Good posture should be a flat lower back, arched upper back, and looking down on the ball through the center of your eyes, not down your nose. Your weight should be evenly distributed from your heel to the balls of your feet. You are to far forward on your toes, and this is why your back foot comes up to counter this weight being to far forward.

I would work on your swing with a tee or a towel under each arm, and keep them there through out the swing. With doing this, try to straighten your back knee quicker in the backswing. So what happens is your left knee takes more weight, and your back knee straightens (does not go completely straight, do not lock the knee).

Also, check out this thread, great videos.

There are 5 keys to a good golf swing,

Steady Head

Weight forward at impact

Flat left wrist at impact

Diagonal swing path

Clubface control. 

 

When you see the video that says Key 1, that means drill to keep your head steady. Sot his can help you diagnosis your swing. Things to look for. 

 

Next time you post a video, get a face on view so we can see impact. 

 

Hope this gets you started, welcome to the game!!!

Hey,
Really appreciate it I will definitely be studying what you've provided and take it to the range. Thanks for the guidance!

Really nice looking swing.

 

I haven't been golfing long so I'm not sure how valuable my opinion is but it seems as if your downswing is coming a bit over the top. Maybe decreasing your angle of attack would help with the hook?
