Limited Rotation

6 posts / 653 viewsLast Reply

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.

    • No one started out being a "scratch" golfer...……  Be the kind of person you would want to play along with...... I prefer to play with people that are better than me - I find that tends to make me play better.
    • I’d love to see a picture of the MacGregor chipper, if you get a chance. The argument against chippers seems to have a couple of main themes. First, “It’s a single purpose club that takes up one of the 14 slots allowed by the Rules.” True, but we carry two other single purpose clubs and I don’t see a movement to start putting with a driver, even thought the lofts are similar. The other, “Real golfers don’t carry chippers!”, seems to imply some kind of group consensus of what a club set is supposed to consist of; but I gave up trying to run with the pack in my 50’s. 😊
    • No guesses as to whether it'll survive, but I would think whether it does or not, streaming is going to be more prevalent. Despite the problems with Peacock and the USO, maybe they're going to broadcast some tournaments via Peacock? I don't see the COVID situation changing drastically anytime soon and with the uptick in people golfing, you'd figure there would be a chance to capitalize on that but that's not happening AFAIK.
    • Okay, figured out the culprit was using too much epoxy. Watched some YouTube videos on club assembly and realized I was overdoing the amount of epoxy in the clubhead and applied to the shaft. Assembled some irons last night and used an appropriate amount of epoxy, and the hairline of black epoxy isn't there. Now, I just hope I didn't use too little epoxy...
