My Swing (The_Wetbandit)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 6 years - Weekend Warrior, now playing 3-5 times a week
My current handicap index or average score is: 85-95 type of scores
My typical ball flight is: Low Fade
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Chunky contact. I have a tendency to stiffen up my arms for more power and shift out of my backswing too early causing me to ground the club too early. 15-20 yards loss of length is the result.

Setup looks fine,  but not keeping COG over the arch of your feet or not toward your heels,  keep that power and rotation low and moving off the ball a little to give you space.   Hopefully those chunks become nice tidy clips.

I'd minimize the hip sway a bit (first image below) and then work on not being so static/flat-footed in the downswing and at impact.01.jpg02.jpg

Wow, thank you!

This helps. I didn't even realize I was still swaying. As a former soccer player, not using my feet enough surprises me a bit! Good to know what I can focus on next.

If you have a full length mirror somewhere, you can practice this to work on it. I also recommend the app, Mirror Vision and use it with my iPad. It really helps to be able to see it to work on eliminating issues.

Do you hit a lot of shots off the heel or sh--ks especially when you are first getting loose?

Anyone have any drills to increase swing speed? Or tips for hitting higher trajectory? I’m a natural low, fader. 

Here is a down the line 7 iron 165 yards (maybe closer to 155)

Re Hip sway are you referencing the top two photos or the bottom two. I thought you guys were in favor of sliding the hips?

During the downswing. Not during the backswing.

Never off the heel. Occasionally a bad toe. Mostly my shots move right because I can’t seem to square the face. I’ll tend to leave it open at impact. Drives especially...
