Limited Rotation


Recommended Posts

I'm 44 years old and brand new to golf.  I will be getting a few lessons soon but until then I have a question?  I have limited rotation in my back swing to the point that my club head speed is barely 50-70 mph.  My total distance with my 7 iron averages 140ish when I have a solid strike (with a launch monitor).  My question is this.  Are there any drills that you all have used yourselves that will increase mobility and actually give me a better rotation?  At the moment when I get to the top of my back swing my left arm bends to compensate for the limited flexibility and this is affecting my ball striking I believe.  Any links to websites with visuals would be helpful.  Thanks in advance.

Create a my swing thread and post a down the line view. It could be that you are just not turning your body well enough. Hard to say what is causing your issues with out seeing your swing.

A swing video would help us see how flexible you really are in your swing. Although 140 yards with a 7i is pretty good imo.

My 7i is similar, I restarted last year! My driver speed now varies 70-85 but at higher speeds, less control. The average is higher now after a year. I find doing ½ to 3/4 swings helps a lot. Lessons will be very beneficial.

    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
    • Over my lifetime I've voted in every presidential election for which I've been old enough to vote. I have voted for Democrats. I've voted for Republicans. I have voted for candidates who've won, and for candidates who've lost. My personal policy has always been to vote for the candidate of my choice, and then support who ever wins. If I'm ever invited to the Oval Office, I'm going! ... Again, it's pretty unlikely that I will ever get invited, but you never know.  I have to agree with you here. I can name some really good things and some things that I totally disagree with from every president in my lifetime. 
    • There are so many other curses and obscenities he could have used to express frustration and he chose that. Really sad on many levels.
    • Cheers Sammy, ach aye no bad mate, weathers a bit dreich but hey ho hahaha hows yer sen..?
    • I have no issue with swearing on the golf course, really, but it is important not to tie JT's latest transgression in wth the poll.  "F****t" isn't a "curse word", it's a homophobic slur.
