I've been Playing Golf for: 6 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 90
My typical ball flight is: Short (sometimes weak and right)
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Short, Fat shots (especially when I try to hit a draw), inconsistent flight pattern
I had planned on starting a swing thread as soon as the weather got nice. I remembered that my buddy had taken this last fall. Don't mind his commentary.
I realize this is probably not much to go on (poor angles), but I thought I would start the thread anyway.
I am looking to make more solid contact mainly with the longer clubs. If I play the white tees (6000 yards) at my home course, I can score lower 90's, upper 80's. Typically I do not have many penalty shots, but I do not hit the ball very far. On the longer holes, it makes it a real struggle to hit the GIR. I probably hit around 3-5 GIR a round depending on how I am playing. Short game is OK, nothing great, but I do not feel that I am throwing away a lot of strokes with it. I do not get up and down a whole lot, but I rarely do not get down in three.
I also struggle with the difference between my practice swing and real swing. My practice swings feel much smoother and faster. If I do the line in the sand drill and try to make consistent divots on the target side of the line, I usually can do this. If I put a ball down, things go poorly. Same with a driver on a tee. I think it is to much of a "hit" instinct. Full swings appear to be more of a punch, like the video below. Any help with this would be great.
Any advice would be appreciated, and I do plan on getting some "real" vids up as soon as the weather is nice.
