My swing (xsv345)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 3 years 1 year consistently

My current handicap index or average score is: mid 90's

My typical ball flight is:Fade/Pull/Slice

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

 


Hello, this is a video montage of my swing. Its from old to most recent swing ending with most recent within about 2-3 months time period. My adjustment were steepening my swing plane because it looked flat to ME, I am no expert just used my judgment, and my setup as far as but end pointing at my belt buckle.

It sees as if i'm starting to develop more of an over the top action towards the end?

On recording video, shoot the down the line view, down the TOE line, not behind the golf ball. Its hard to tell the position of the clubhead when its off the toe line. 

 

This is on the last swing (were you are wearing black)

 

First)

Head down, you want to be looking at the ball through the center of your eyes, not down the bridge of your nose. Besides that the posture looks good.

Two examples, of Robert Allenby and Hunger Mahan. Your posture is pretty good, just need to get that head down more. For you it might almost feel like your chin is near your chest. 

 

Second)

You rotate on too shallow of a shoulder turn. Need to get a steeper shoulder turn. Here's a good instructional video on describing the Steady Head key for the golf swing. You can see Erik describing how his left shoulder goes down. you can see with your swing your shallow turn also causes you to fall what looks like towards the target at the top of the swing. If you want a good visual, your shoulders should be pointing a few feet past the ball. Your's in that swing is pointing off screen. So you can get a lot steeper and be OK. 

 

 

 

Third),

 

A little bit of a wider stance, you get a bit of knee sway in the golf swing. You start to tilt towards the target when you get near the top of the backswing. Also flare the feet out about 30 degrees. This will help with hip turn and stabilizing your knees more. The knees should be pointing slightly outward. 

 

I would work on getting that head steady more. Once you get that solid you can move on to more of getting those impact conditions better.

Thank your for your reply. My question is how do I really go about steeping my shoulder plane? if you told me to clench my fist I would know how to do that but when I try to steepen my shoulder I'm not really sure how to perform that. Do you have a drill at all that helps with that. I don't really have anyone to stand in front of me to put the hand by my chest like the video.

Yeah @saevel25 hit on all the right pieces.

 

1. Eyes are up, chin is up, some arch in the lower back.

 

Check out this thread

 Good Golf Posture 

 

 

2. Turn both feet out about 25 degrees, allows the knees to point out as well. Your knees are rotated inward, making it hard to turn the hips and turn them steep enough, why the hips move back to the right on the backswing.

 

More on that here

Yea, my response would be, tilt your shoulder more. I mean you do or you don't. Lay a club across your chest, and make turns, try to get the club mor pointing towards the ground. It will feel like your shoulder rock like a teeter totter more than turn, but they'll be turning.
