My Swing (rat bass)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2-3 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 90

My typical ball flight is: fade

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull, slice, chunk, thin

Have been struggling with consistent contact. Lately have been pulling the ball left very often. I usually take massive divots. A main concern of mine from the videos above is how steep the club comes into the ball, I believe I need to learn how to shallow the club in the downswing to promote a draw/ in to out swing but I struggle with this very much. This steep angle of attack is clear from the second video.

Hi, welcome to the site. Your tailbone is too far behind you at address and it's causing some pivot issues. So first thing I would do is check out this thread and do the drill for how far back the butt should go.

Iron fit may be an issue to , don't you think?

Pretty good for someone who has been playing a short period of time.  One thing you can do ( besides take info from the PROS ) is shorten the swing and figure out how to hit the short shots straight.  When I'm struggling with the Driver I tend to go to the Short game area and just work on Confidence.  Two positives there - 1. If I hit in trouble with the driver my short game better be sharp.  2.  If I work at my short game it usually gives me better tempo through the bag.

I completely agree. I had flatten out my swing way to much. This caused me to hit my irons much less consistently. My start lines were a lot more to the right. Now that I have gotten my irons a little steeper it has forced me to shorten my swing as well. Since the steeper swing isn't as flexible.

I still need to figured out how to incorporate this swing into my woods.

He means that the clubs could be playing a bit too long in length for you with your current set up posture.  But don't worry about that.  Look at the posture thread mvmac pointed you to.  Start there and post another video.
