My swing (nilssoa)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been Playing Golf for: 14 years​ 
My current handicap index or average score is: 9.0

My biggest concern is that my left hip hurts when I play. I'm guessing there is something wrong in the way i swing. I have always had a short/blocked follow through, can that be the cause of my problem?

Any help is much appreciated.

From yesterdays game

@nilssoa ,

 

That is a pretty nice swing.  Where does your hip hurt?  I don't see anything in the swing that looks like it may affect the hip.  If you could post a face on shot, that would help.

 

I have been doing a stretching routine for a while from the book below.  It has really helped my hip flexibility.  I race bicycles for years and my hip flexors and joints got very tight.  The stretching section is the best part of the book.

Another great book or DVD for golf related flexibility is below.  Joey D has a few hip exercises in there two.  I do these 3 times a week and the stretching above every day.  It has really helped my hip flexibility and strength.

Thanks for the reading advice, will read those books. It's the outside of the left hipjoint that hurts. I think it is when I push my left hip too far forward and get blocked in the follow through but I'm not really sure. Get the sensation that the hip isn't turning correctly in it's socket.

Is my posture ok? I'm not a hunchback...
