My Swing (hunterw297)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 15ish years?

My current handicap index or average score is: 2.9, avg 78/79
My typical ball flight is: Dead straight
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: A weak slice or pull hook from coming over the top.


Videos: 

So to be honest... I think my swing is pretty ugly looking. A lot of compensation going on at the release where I almost stand straight up to prevent myself from hitting 2 feet behind the ball but... it works somehow for me. Most of the time at least.

One thing I REALLY want is just to be able to hit the damn ball further. My 7 iron goes about 140-145 carry and my driver is about 240, maybe 250 if I REALLY swing it. I'm definitely looking into getting a SuperSpeed set as soon as I can afford it, but I know I have to be leaking a ton of power somewhere.

This was a bit of a pull iirc

Pretty solid here. I think I gained 10 yards today changing the loft in my driver from 7.5 to 9.5 and REALLY putting it far forward in my stance.

Sorry for the bad camera position in the face on ones.

Couple of things…

  • If you're interested in SuperSpeed, see the link on the right side of the site. Highly recommended.
  • Consider, please, trimming videos.
  • Also consider posting videos in high-speed (or "slow-mo").
  • Your lower body could support the turn a bit more:

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the feedback. I had actually recorded these in high speed with my iPhone, but uploading them to my computer removed the effect. I'll try trimming them in iMovie and seeing if I can keep the high speed effect by importing them through that.

Could you explain what you mean by having my lower body support the turn more?

If find trimming them and editing the slow motion areas is easy in both Photos and iMovie. You can set just the swing part in slow motion and leave the rest at full speed if you want to show set up and preshot.

    • 104 rounds so far for 2020. Not likely to add much to that number as the weather has made a turn for the worse.  Thirty different courses but only four were new to me.  A pre-COVID trip to Reunion, FL, in February, otherwise all the rounds were in the SE section of the Mitten.
    • Day 336 - November 30, 2020 Did some backswing work with MirrorVision after the demo time limit expired. 🙂
    • Name them. Your list below doesn't really do that. It just says "football games" and "weddings" and things. I hadn't gone searching specifically for this before today, but I also haven't heard of any super-spreader events held entirely outdoors. Was the White House event a ‘superspreader’? Experts explain the phenomenon Superspreader events can lead to dozens or hundreds of COVID-19 cases. Experts explain what the biggest risk factors are. Being outdoors doesn’t mean you're safe from COVID-19 – a White House event showed what not to do The outdoors is less risky than an enclosed room, but it isn't a COVID-19-free zone. Here's what you need to know. Look, even if there were none (super spreader events entirely outside), I'm not saying "being outdoors is 100% safe." I'm just asking a question. Trying to gain some knowledge here. This is not me arguing a point, and is separate from (but related to) the DMM stuff. Sturgis Bike Rally: Superspreading Event or Not? A new study says that the recent bike rally in Sturgis is linked to 260,000 cases of COVID, but South Dakota officials don't agree. There's disagreement over that one, and was the bike rally outside, or did the bikers stay in hotels, go in bars and drink and eat together, etc.? Do you have a specific example? Indoors. Be specific. A quick search on that gave me this: Big indoor portion to that one, and nine people were later positive after that.
    • I love golf hats. All kinds. But this thread is for those special hats you own that are in your personal Hall of Fame. Preferably non-OEM. Let's see them!    First up is Seminole. I have played in three stroke play tournaments there and its an incredible place. Second up is my Crosby hat from the Clambake. I have never been but it was a gift from a great friend of mine and tied in the black and brown I used to wear. The logo is supercool and a suede bill that screams 80s.
