My Swing (Caligolfer2103)


Recommended Posts

I had no problems posting my kids' swings but I finally got the courage to post mine!  Would love feedback.

I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year
My current handicap index or average score is: haven't tracked, but have played a couple rounds recently of bogey golf.  in those cases, the short game is what kills me, i.e. on the green on 2 or 3 and then 2 - 4 putt 😞
My typical ball flight is: Typically straight, but sometimes a fade.  Ball flight tends to be pretty high.  
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: my biggest issues is hosel rockets!  i can literally go through a single day, like today, where in the morning, I am literally hitting a hosel rocket (nasty ones that go 45 degrees and curve wickedly) on every shot and every club.  then, i tell myself ok, i'm going to go this afternoon and make sure i keep my eyes on the ball and all of a sudden, i'm crushing shots and people on the range are asking me how i do it.   the problem is i have no idea what causes that nasty session in the AM vs. the perfect session in the afternoon.

Will try to get some better videos up in the coming days...

@Vinsk, I read through the attached, but wasn't clear on the takeaway as it relates to me.  I do feel I'm too upright - i've played around with posture a lot and for some reason this ends up being my natural position and the one I'm most comfortable with.  But i definitely want to learn and get better, so open to hearing your thoughts so i can apply them.

Just a thought, but are you aware of Evolvr? It’s an online golf instruction program you can sign up for on this site. You’ll get one on one instruction from excellent teachers and it’s very well priced. Anyway, I’m not an instructor and don’t want to lead you down the wrong path too far. Let’s ask some real pros and hopefully they’ll get a chance to throw some advice your way!

This is all free but sometimes it may take awhile to get responses. This is one of the advantages of Evolvr. I’ll call on two top notch guys: @iacas @mvmac. These guys are pretty damn busy but they’ll throw some help in when they can.

    • Oh pretty! Seems like in prime shape from a 1000 ft.
    • Yup. I lay my hat down next to it.
    • Seems fine. I feel like having played at RNK last year, a little rain isn’t going to bother me.
    • "Anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac! Anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot! - George Carlin" Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh, boogielicious. My old golf partner George Zakarian, may he rest in peace, once told a group of officers at the Fort Eustis golf course, "We may suck, but we suck fast."  Zak and I used to play 18 holes at Norwich Golf Course in Connecticut in two hours, with a cart.  (The 1980's.)
    • Day 5 (12 Jun 21) - Pitch shot work w/9i in the backyard.  Worked on takeaway / follow-thru mechanics, focused on coming straight back with in to out downswing.  Started out with most shots to the right of target and finishing the session with the ball crisp off the club on line or just left of the target.  Finished the drill using 5 different balls just to see how they acted: old “wound” Spalding TopFlite (very soft feeling); a couple of different model modern TopFlites (very clicky off the face); MaxFli (similar to the TopFlites) and a ProV1 (very similar to the wound ball in feel).  Doesn’t mean anything - just fun to hit.
