My Swing (TigerHHI)

I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year
My current handicap index or average score is: 12
My typical ball flight is: Pulls with irons, fade/slice with woods/driver
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pulls and Slices or the pop up with driver. Coming into impact with open club face


I have been trying to stop coming over the top for over a year now and working on a lot of different feels to stop this. My focus right now is trying to lay the shaft behind me in transition (shallowing) but it almost always results with a fat shot well behind the ball. I have also tried leaning the shaft forward at address and closing shoulders to set the swing plane more right to stop pulling but this is not bullet proof and just feels weird. I also work on closing the club face sooner in the downswing as I tend to come into impact open but this pulls the shot even more instead of draw it. I tend to take steep big divots and again trying to shallow the angle of attack out but i am at a lost of what in my swing is causing my issues. Sometimes i can really hit the ball well on the range and get that nice draw but I really dont know how to repeat it. Hoping for some priorities to work on from the group as I have so many swing thoughts right now!

ONLY playing for 1 year with that swing? You have great flexibility, posture, and power. Not sure where that ball ended up, but looks like you smashed it pretty well. 

Struggling with too many swing thoughts? Me too. What helped me was George Gankas. He has a great instagram page for reference and an online program. His method simplifies the backswing and the downswing into two thoughts.

    • It took over a year, but the consultant's report finally came out.  Probably about what we had feared (and mostly already knew). Tons of money are needed to repair the infrastructure and they know they aren't going to be able to raise fees enough to do it.  Sounds like if they save one it's probably going to be Community. May need an alternative next year. After 100 years, will Dayton get out of the golf business? An outside consultant has recommended Dayton close a golf course, subsidize one of its golf facilities through the general fund and invest millions
    • That’s definitely demoralizing. Not just for Tiger, but for his fans as well. I looked at the leaderboard yesterday, and when I saw 4-putt, I thought, “That doesn’t sound like Tiger to me.” And how on earth did he send the putt five feet past from two feet?! 
    • For a brief moment he looked human, then closed with a 71.
    • This is for you, my dear friends.  I am putting this here specifically to refute the demand that I speak more about the word "huh". "The ball may tend to draw a bit more from the forward bending of the shaft at impact causing the face to rotate past square to be slightly closed. However, if the golfer happens to slice or fade the ball, this actually could help reduce such a misdirection tendency. " This quote can be found under the heading: Possible Outcomes When Using a Shaft That Is Too Flexible for Your Swing Explaining the Effect of Wrong Shaft Flex in Golf Clubs What happens when you use golf clubs with the wrong shaft flex? Things that hurt your score. Here are some specific examples of possible problems. I used the words "spring action" while this author used the words "forward bending" -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   I was going to put some more quotes here.  But I do not feel like it.  The words are there for you to see.  Any implication you read of a claim of advantage comes from your interpretation of my words rather than the words themselves.  I made no such claim.   Bill and Erik, I know you love to remove my stuff, but I ask you to leave this here so I can defend myself against these accusations from lefty.   Do tell, Lefty, because again you attack me for no apparent reason...where are my ignorant words you speak of?
    • After the All Star stuff tonight there was an hour long documentary (or Masterson application video, probably) on the amount of damage done to Connor McDavids knee in the final game of last season.  I'm not sure how you'd watch it in the States since it isn't on YouTube yet, but wow, just wow.    The Oilers picked up the rumored four million dollar tab for his rehab, and even still it's hard to believe he skated on opening day, let alone the preseason.   I already had a lot of respect for the guy, but after watching this it's shot through the roof now.
