My Swing (Golfer20)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 85

My typical ball flight is: A little high with all of my shots.  I ALWAYS miss with my driver to the right. 
 

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Just trying to gain more distance. I can usually hit the ball pretty solid, however I really lacking distance.  I usually hit my my driver about 220.  My 9-iron usually only goes about 120-130.  The DTL video is with a pitching wedge.  The FO swing is with a 9-iron.

I'm not an instructor, and I certainly don't have the game of golf down to a science. But it looks to me like your hip turn could stand to be increased You have a lot more arms, then shoulders, then hips.....this could be the cause of you lacking distance. But I'd wait for someone more knowledgeable to weigh in before you start making changes 🙂

Thanks for the reply. So you’re saying that I need more hip turn in the backswing or the downswing?

 To my untrained eye, yes. Your hip turn in the backswing seems to be a little lacking. More hip turn on the backswing will automatically lead to more in the downswing as you bring them back forward. And that should equate to more power. Right now it looks like a lot of your power is coming from your arms. This, I believe, would also contribute to your high ball flight as you're 'lifting' while coming through the ball.

Have you tried… swinging faster?

Not being facetious.

Also, try this.

I can see where youre coming from. It does look like I’m swinging pretty slow. I guess I have been focused on positions so much here lately, I have forgotten to swing fast! I know you say most of the speed comes from the arms Iacas... I remember seeing a post about that in the Swing Thoughts forum. 

 

Thanks for the reply.

    • Thanks, that’s nice to say. I’ve been working on it for a while. Although I’m currently having trouble implementing a new move.  And I always fight the urge to whip the club back way inside and flat and then come over the top. I work everyday on my backswing shoulder turn so my arms can come along for the ride when I turn away. If I manage to get too far the other way, it’s easy for me to correct.
    • I have been listening to the Unspooled podcast which is methodically going through the AFI top 100 list. Recently rewatched back to back, The Post, birdie,  and then All the President's Men, eagle, (for the umpteenth time, I love this movie) because it covered the latter movie. While I respect the opinions of the podcast, it has had its criticisms of movies that I love, like Saving Private Ryan for one, but I learned a lot from the hosts, and that held for ATPM, like I did not know as much about Muskie as I should have. I tossed aside The Post as awards fare, but on rewatching it, I enjoyed it more, especially being able to put ATPM on right afterwards, a great double bill. The latest Unspooled is on Vertigo, eagle. May rewatch that as Vertigo is another of my all time faves. Vertigo, episode #55 of Unspooled on Earwolf Paul & Amy fall into Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 psychological thriller Vertigo!  
    • I would agree with @dennyjones.   Typically if it's just out playing around, I'll often try to do the harder wedge shot through the "V" in the 80 ft tall trees.  I'm in the trees often enough that iv'e had too much practice so it's a higher % shot for me.  If the score is important, I will take the shot that I think give me the best chance at advancing the ball, whatever it might be.  Every round is some kind of learning, some more than others. My course typically doesn't have many people when I'm there, so I will often play 2-3 balls at the same time unless I have someone behind me, then I will let them play through. You can still learn while enjoying and having fun.
    • Hopefully, you learn something from every experience. Of course, some of us learn faster than others. Obviously when playing a round that counts, you play for the lowest score. That's why there really is something to be said for practice rounds, particular when the course isn't busy and you can try different things.  As time goes by, the strategy for each hole on the course changes through learning. The hole where I used to lay up in front of the hazard has become a hole I know I can hit GIR if my drive gets to a certain place on the fairway. Now its just a matter of hitting that darn driver. It's a process.
    • For competitions, etc absolutely.  For fun daily play?  I disagree, it's my game, I can make the purpose of that day whatever I like. I have days where I feel like taking on that cool shot.  So I do - just for fun, knowing that my score will be hurt.  So what?  I want to try the shot and I'll take my medicine when it doesn't go well. Other days, I play for score and try to select my shots as best I can based on my limited knowledge, skill and experience. It's a game - I do what I want.
