My Swing (Son II of Caligolfer 2013)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year
My current handicap index or average score is: n/a
My typical ball flight is: straight, but occasional block right (no curve, just starts going right)
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: that block right

Son #2!  Also open to any thoughts and advice as he continues to work on his swing.  Not taking many lessons at all at this point given soccer commitment, but trying to find ways to build more consistency in his swing if there are places to simplify his motion.

 

Thanks again!

With him, I feel like the challenge has been how to complete the rotation through the end of the swing.  It looks his body stops rotating as the club is about to hit the ball and you can actually see his body sort of jerk and come to a halt, at which time he also loses his spine angle.  Of course, I'm a total novice 🙂

He’s got a nice swing to build on. He’s got a bit of early extension, losing his spine angle towards the end. I think he loses a bit of his end point hip rotation since he’s thrusting forwards a little.

Thanks Vinsk.  I think that's exactly right.  Any thoughts on how he can work on carrying that hip rotation through the final part of his swing?

I’ve always liked the ‘chair drill.’ He places a chair (or golf bag, alignment rod) behind him just to where his buttocks touch it. Backswing right buttock touches, rotation both then left buttock during impact. What’s important is that his backside shouldn’t lose contact with the chair. 

Also important is to practice slowly maybe even in a mirror. Focus on keeping the hips in contact with the chair throughout the swing. Start with slow swings then move up to faster swings at 1/2 bs, 3/4 bs.  

BTW....when you want to directly respond to a member use the ‘@‘ then start typing the members name like this: @Caligolfer2103. Then just choose the member from the list. This way the member gets notified you responded. Otherwise he/she won’t know and it’s just by chance they read the latest post. Cheers!
