I've been Playing Golf for: 4 rounds & about 2000 range shots
My current handicap index or average score is: 34
My typical ball flight is: straight short/mid irons, slice long irons & woods
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice
Some background about my swing:
I used to play ice hockey which was probably the cause why I was initially hitting over the top (should be fixed now, I'll probably post some DTL shots tomorrow).
I suspect that for the same reason I have a tendency to keep my hands bent at the impact point & overwork my hands(working on that).
I think that there's something positive from the ice hockey hobby also, I seem to slide/drive my hips forward quite naturally
OT: The awesome slide your hips thread actually lead me to this forum about a month ago
My swing is already quite constant, but I've been struggling with slices a lot.
Hopefully I can get better with your help.
Also please be lenient about possible spelling/grammar errors as I'm not a native english speaker
These videos were recorded today 28.07.14 with Sony HDR-AS30 which records 720p @ 120 fps but encodes video as 30 fps automatically.
Some thoughts about the videos and this days range session:
After a short stray from sliding my hips to rotating my hips I focused today on "anchoring" the back leg to the ground and keeping my shoulders tight/squared.
For some reason I started slicing my 8 iron which I haven't done for a month.
As I was going through my shots after the practice session I noticed that my grip sucks donkey balls, my upper wrist is quite bent at the start which leads the club face to be quite open if the swing squares properly.
