My Swing (srguthrie)

I've been Playing Golf for: 6 years

My current handicap index or average score is: infinity
My typical ball flight is: inconsistent
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull hook

 


Against my better judgement, I'll go ahead and put a couple of video up, but first a little about me.  From the get-go I've had two big issue; I ginormous over swing, and not getting my hips through.  I do take lessons, but not as often as I'd like.  The videos below were from two days this week with a couple of new thoughts I'm working on.  I think these are about as good as I can expect right now, but I can't repeat it.

Sorry, my ability to get videos of myself is pretty limited.  I can probably get a face-on, but I usually get slo-mo by reducing the play speed on YouTube.

While I can't help you with your swing as I'm a novice myself, all I can say is good luck on your journey to improve at this crazy game.  Hopefully you keep with it.

Every modern phone records slow mo these days, no?

Yes, if you have someone there to take a video for you.  I'm somewhat limited in that I'm using a tripod and app that detects and records my swings.

So I did another4 "range session" today and did my best to get a DTL and head on video both at regular speed and what slo-mo capabilities the app I use has to offer.  For some stupid reason the slo-mo, which wasn't that "slow" anyway, added more personal info that I care to post so I'm not including that.

If you have a phone that records in slow motion then just hit record on your phone and then go to your ball and hit. You can trim the excess before you upload the video.

The think slow-mo on my phone only records for a few seconds.  Not nearly enough time for me to hit record and get to the ball before it ends.  I guess I can play with it and see.

I'm trying out a new swing feel and am looking for input.  Here's a slow mo video face on and DTL.  Sorry for the lighting conditions.

 

 

 

You are flipping a bit before impact. Check out the drills in day 1 through 5 in the thread below.
