My Swing (Akhil Puri)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 3 years 

My current handicap index or average score is: 20 

My typical ball flight is: High

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Snap hook with the driver, hitting it fat with the wedges and too thin with the pitching wedge off the tee 








I thought i didn't feel the need for a lesson since my grandpa was a good golfer and i thought i had the genes , which is quite arrogant really , something that i now realize. So i decided about a year back to iron out some issues with my swing and short game when i couldn't break 90 and took 2/3 lessons . The coach said i was too handsy, but i did compensate for it with a decent enough swing. Since then i am trying to incorporate more of my shoulders in my takeaway but to be very honest im still struggling to achieve any sort of consistency with the driver , My swing speed is close to 120 when i last used the trackman which was a year ago. Im ok with my 5i - 8i , the moment im less the 150 yards is the time i start stugggling with distance control. I hit my wedges too fat and while teeing off with my pitching too thin. 


I feel i can break 85 easily but im in my way at the moment and its very hard for my to really put together what exactly is it that im not being able to over come . Its a bit a recklessness mixed with fear .


Anyway hoping for some honest feedback from you folks!

Yes you have some speed for sure. I think you have the ability to be a good player but need to gain some better knowledge.


First thing I would do is look at the set-up. Your spine is tilted towards the target. This is going to feel weird but you're going to push your hips slightly towards the target so the spine tilts away from the target. Notice the head is still centered with the player on the right, he's not getting it tilted right by just having his head over his right foot. 


Also turn both feel out, will help keep your head more steady.
