My Swing (BENtSwing32)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 10 months

My current handicap index or average score is: 18.5

My typical ball flight is: small fade, I suppose...although sometimes its a small draw or straight lol

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

 


 

Videos: 

 

No FO videos yet, sorry. There is never any room at the crowded grass range of beautiful Costa Mesa Country Club (lol). This session was around 3 weeks ago. I wasn't exactly "on" this night, and there are things here I have since worked on w an instructor this last weekend. Mostly keeping my right elbow from getting too far around my body on the backswing, weight forward, clearing hips more, not letting my weight get on the outside of my right foot, keeping a little more flex in my right knee on the backswing. Obviously there are TONS more things to work on but these should keep me occupied for at least a month. One . . . thing . . . at . . . a . . . time.

 

 

My instructor videos a lot of my swings with an iPad but accidentally had it set to auto-delete last time...I will have higher quality vids, a FO vid, and more up-to-date swings after the next lesson I get from him in a month or so. For now...FIRE AWAY BOYS!

I think you have a lot of nice structure to the swing, except you're sitting way back into your heels at address.

 

 

Then to try and balance yourself, your hips move too far towards the ball and the weight is too far back. Hurts your ability to swing outward.

 

So I would recommend sticking your butt out less at address and feeling the weight more towards your toes to even things out.  Then you can start to use the ground more effectively and utilize these drills/feels.

Awesome thanks @mvmac !! I have had issues with leaning too far forward during my downswing, and I tend to try and compensate at address...I remember this particular session I could not get a comfortable weight distribution (heel to toe) for the life of me.

A couple swings from tonight. Trying to get a little better posture as mvmac suggested. Still further back on my heels than it felt like. Getting some good contact tonight though, and mostly straight or slight fade. Sorry I bumped the camera without knowing before the 7i shot. This 3W was straight and bounced past the 225 and hit the fence (downhill range). Probably wont be hitting driver this weekend lol...

Looks pretty good. Now would just recommend feeling more weight forward to keep making it better, straighten out the ball flight, would like to see you swing outward more. Best way to do it is change the direction the weight is moving. Take a look at those videos I posted yesterday.

Thank you! Will definitely focus on the weight forward now. Great videos. Thanks again for your help so far, really appreciate it :beer:
