I've been Playing Golf for: About 4 years
My current handicap index or average score is: mid 80s on 6500 yd. courses
My typical ball flight is: pretty standard height and fairly long (about 185 carry with a 5i; 270 carry Dr.)
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: A pull hook. 90% of my poor shots are hooks, often coupled with a topped shot that results in a pull hook 10 yards off the ground.
Anyway, here's what I aim to get out of this: A good start on getting my full swing consistent enough to be at least a sub-10 handicap by the end of the year. I only play golf sparingly right now, mostly for financial reasons (and it's 105 degrees plus all day in AZ for three months now), but I should be able to become more serious about it beginning this fall. I would like to work on my swing heavily over the summer.
I took lessons twice - 3 quick ones from a local pro the week I started playing in 2010, and a series of 5 about 2 years ago. I learned a lot about drilling specific aspects of the swing then, and it has made me an even bigger advocate of what I've read here about 5SK and some of the theories prescribed. I feel like there are probably two or so things I am doing drastically wrong that, if improved, could make me a capable ball striker even if there's a dozen little problems to correct that would make me even better. Tonight when I post my swings - I wanted to put a AW, 6i, and driver up from DTL and FO - I plan on commenting on what I see, and then would welcome any suggestions from the forum not only about my swing, but about what I think is wrong with my swing.
Lastly, I cannot strongly enough say how grateful I am this option exists for regular duffers like me. The amount of knowledge presented here by the moderators and their colleagues who contribute is worth hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. It's pretty cool that you find the time to fit this in among your normal professional schedule.
Can't embed my videos on this computer. Well, may as well post and do it tonight...
