My Swing (Valleygolfer) - Page 2
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
3rd round of the year and starting to corral my swing. I found that my backswing was too long (for me) and pulling me off my front foot and causing me to be off balance and flip the club a bit. Accuracy has improved considerably. I also slowed my tempo too and that has helped a ton.
Now I just have to stay on task for the year.
Looking good. Sorry can't remember, are you on Evolvr?
One thing that stands out is that the arms are too rigid at set-up and the position of the right thumb. I would recommend softening the arms and get the right thumb to look more like this, going to help not kick out the "lag" as much on the downswing.
Thanks for your time Mike. I am not on evolvr. Just self taught with stuff I read about and recently picking up tips from 5sk and you.
Played solid in the first nine in today's round but deteriorated in the back nine. Mechanics fell apart but it may have been due to the million mosquitoes flying around my face during every f'n swing... Seriously it was like a cloud... Horrible. On a positive note I have had more birdies in the last three weeks than I probably had all last year... maybe that s an exaggeration but I have scored quite a few already.
The greens on the course I was playing were crazy slow, I hit many a putt very hard and would not make it to the hole. I can't wait until the greens come back...
Coming off a solid round of 81, I played a pretty disparaging ball striking round the next day. I was hitting a few hosel rockets and a lot of pulled shots. I can only guess I was rotating at my torso too much during my return swing. I was having a difficult time focusing that day and had an uneasy feeling most of the front nine that I could not shake. It was kinda like a nervous hungry feeling that left me feeling like soggy spaghetti when I swung. Any psychologists out there?
