My Swing (ahelix)


Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 10 months
My current handicap index or average score is: 36.4
My typical ball flight is: Slice
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Inconsistently striking the ball (goes 25 yards) and MAJOR slice when I do get some distance (specifically with driver)


Videos: I'll get some better videos soon, but here's what I currently have

My (amateur) thoughts:

1. Moving your head - try to maintain spine angle and position

2. Swinging mostly with arms - make takeaway more 1 piece and coil

3. Trying to hit too hard - I don't know how to fix that!

Please embed using Youtube, Thanks!

Thank you! Two of the videos are from my instructor so I can't get the original video to put on Youtube. One of them was from my phone so I'm putting it here. I couldn't figure out how to edit my original post to fix it there...

Working on a few things:

  1. Trying not to move my head up and down like @Sclaffer mentioned. I do this more with the hybrid. Helps if I bend at my hips a little more when setting up to start, otherwise I have a tendency to come down as I swing--especially if I try hitting it really hard.
  2. Turning my head and looking up a little earlier to sync up better with my rotation
  3. Swinging more inside out (more between 1st and 2nd base) while turning wrist to get that "X", and trying to lead with toe
  4. Trying not to hit it too hard

UPDATE/PROGRESS:
I've been Playing Golf for: 1.5 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 34.9
My typical ball flight is: Slice
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Not making good contact, hitting it fat or topping

Changes: Really worked on fixing the follow-through to let my arms fold, still having to focus on keeping wrist straight for inside-out swing (vs extended)

Any suggestions/feedback on my latest video/swing? Doing more of a 3/4 swing until I get things down a little better.

If you are working with an instructor, I would recommend listening to them. If you’re looking for drills, check out these.

Awesome, thanks! Yeah, think I was just looking for some drills to supplement the work I'm doing with my instructor.

    • I don't mind being paired up; I have met some real nice people this way. Since I end up wanting to golf and most of my friends don't play, I would just call the course and say "hi, I am just a single golfer, can I play today?", and they would just say to come out here and we'll get you out. So not usually a problem. In my way of thinking, if I don't book a foursome, I am at the mercy of the course anyway as to where and when they want to put me and that's perfectly ok, I accept that. The main thing is, I get to play!!! 
    • You should get it pretty quickly. I ordered mine on 2/15 and it was delivered 2/20. They're based out of AZ, and I'm in SoCal, so the shipping was pretty quick to get to me. You may experience an extra couple of days depending on where you live. Also, if you're looking for a different shaft for it, you could always look at getting something from The Golf Works. They have pretty much any shaft you'd want as well as the PXG adapter. I believe they can install the adapter for you as well for a small fee.
    • I used to play as a single a lot (I likely will be doing this again as I get back into the game), and I don't mind getting paired up with another group. I always try to be mindful of who I'm paired with, and let them set the tone. If I'm paired with a threesome and they want to do their own thing, that's fine by me.  If they want to chat a bit, that's fine as well.
    • 92 at a fairly easy track called Toka Sticks here in sunny AZ. 4 over on 18.  No penalties today though. 
    • Sounds like a busy week of golf, enjoy.  Looking forward to some reviews on those courses since I've not played any of them.
