My Swing (iSukgolf)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

 

 

I've been Playing Golf for:​  10 years 

 

My current handicap index or average score is: 19HC ... disclaimer, I have been working really hard ... in April was praying to break 100, now I am in the low 90's and trying to stay there ...   

 

My typical ball flight is: Honestly its all over the place ... I slice my longer clubs  

 

 

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Is the slice especially on clubs like driver and 3w 

 

Been working very hard at swinging inside-out ... very hard transition after swing wrong for so long ... 

 

 

And now you know why I selected iSukGolf as a userid :-D

 


 

Videos:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well apparently I was successful in getting these to you tube ... a feat unto itself ...

 

Sorry I do not know how to produce a slow motion video, etc ...

First, check your grip

 

 How to Grip a Golf Club, Commonalities of a Functional Golf Grip 

 

On the backswing the hips slide back and the left knee rotates too far inward, causing you to move off the ball. 

 

To keep things centered and put yourself in a better position on the downswing, I would feel like the left knee flexes more in front of you (towards the ball). 

 

Also spend some time with this drill.....

 

 

To start and change this picture

@mvmac Thank you for your comment ... believe me it is greatly appreciated.

 

I must admit this is first time I have "looked" at my swing ... did not realize I moved so much, and I honestly thought I moved my head more ...

 

 

Here is a confession ... I have seen you post that drill before ... practiced it ... and even implement it with success ... but for some reason my old habits creep back into my "normal" routine ... can not explain why ... I guess with two active brain cells, there just isn't enough room ... 

 

I will practice it more, and try to ensure it stays there.  

 

I always "feel" like I "chicken wing" the end of my swig ... but one step at a time ... 

 

Are these videos shot with an iPhone in my backyard acceptable for evolvr?    

 

@Abu3baid I too look forward to seeing improve ... I can not express how my thinking about the whole game has changed in my short time here.  Honestly I have taken almost 10 strokes off, between the forum and LSW book.

Congrats on posting the swing thread.  First step is the hardest.....:-P

 

Slow motion is not to hard.  All you need is a cheap movie editor on your PC.

Hey, welcome to the I-have-a-swing-thread Club. :beer:

 

The only thing I'll add is to use a mirror at home when trying to learn what @mvmac wrote about. Slow and deliberate to see what feels produce what pictures. 

 

And then when you're at the range, it helps a lot to work on hitting shots only 10%, 20%, 30% etc. to learn the new piece. 

 

Rooting for you! You've made good progress going from 100+ not too long ago to a round in the high 80s recently.

@JetFan1983 thank you for your feed back ... I am going to the range to practice tomorrow night ... can not wait.

 

Oddly I was moving my hips forward as per the video with good results ... but then a new swing thought comes along and bamn I forget one ... and default to the old swing.  

 

I will be able to video more with the set you see ... I could not figure out how to get someone to video me,, when that popped into my head ... hit off the mat in the backyard ... duh ... 

 

Also hope to work with the Evolvr folks real soon ...

OK I went the range tonight ... went to gym first ... was tired to start with ... my mistake .. but keeping my hips still is hard!  Even pre-loading ... need more work there!  But I can do that in the backyard as well ... 

 

@mvmac what did you see in my grip ... just want make sure I am working on the right thing.

 

 

Again thanks to everyone, and anyone that has or wants to post advice.

Left and right hand may be too strong. Check the amount the left hand is rotated, right hand trigger finger position and position of the right thumb.

I will get a video up in the next couple of days ... I have to laugh, as I read everyone else's advice on their threads and see myself doing the same thing ... end up practicing the videos recommended to them... However, I think I am making progress, but want feed back on my grip and moving my hips ...my biggest take away from my first video.

Getting an update on here ... tried a different grip and trying to work on the hips ...  

 

Only did on view ... we have an Haboob coming in ...

Welcome to the site!!

 

I would say you look better than your first videos but you still have a lot of movement.  One thing that I noticed first was your left foot coming off the ground.  Some of the more experienced guys may not make this the first thing to concentrate on but there is a lot of merit to key 2 weight forward.  This will force you to keep your foot down along with help with your hips.  I would suggest something like this to go along with Mikes key 2 video as it helped me quite a bit

@Brian W thank you for your feedback ... I will review the attached video ... oddly I feel stable, but looking at myself, it appears I move constantly

Is that your backyard @isukgolf ? If so, very cool putting green!

Yes it's my backyard ... I hit foam balls for my drills ... Putting green has help roll straight as well ... Best thing is I have no grass in my yard at all!
