My Swing (RoberTX)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2 months

My current handicap index or average score is: very high, I'm a beginner

My typical ball flight is: When I make good contact, it flies straight, sometimes the slightest fade.  I sometime hit a very bad slice; I think this happens when I don't turn through enough between the start of my downswing and contact.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:Trying to make consistent contact.  I sometimes hit the ball fat or top it.


As a beginner, I am starting to see a little more consistency, but I have a ways to go.  I am just getting to where I can make decent contact with the driver maybe 75% of the time.  The other 25% mostly go way right (as in 45 degrees right of the target line).  I rarely pull it.  The absolute furthest I have hit the driver is 180 yards in the air.  My 3 wood is a little less.  I've recently started to focus on relaxing my grip pressure and arms and that has helped a lot.  I know my posture needs work, and I can tell my swing is not consistent in these videos - so I shouldn't be surprised that I am not making consistent contact with the ball!


I am using a neutral to slightly strong grip.


Anyway I'm looking for advice on what to focus on while practicing.

Hi welcome to the site and welcome to the game of golf! I would take a look at this thread on posture and work on that first. You need to bend over more, stick your butt out. Some golfers overdo sticking the butt out but you need more of it. So bend a little more from the waist and allow the head to "hang" down. All explained in the thread
