Hi! I've just joined here yesterday, I am very new to golf and I would be grateful for any advice on how to prioritize the many things going wrong with my swing.
I've been Playing Golf for: 5 months My current handicap index or average score is: about 120 My typical ball flight is: well, it's always been straight, but it just doesn't go anywhere. I used to top it all the time but that is somewhat better now. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I'm trying to eliminate the part where my shot goes 20 yards.
I have torn my oblique (playing golf, yes) so these are not full speed shots however, they are exactly how I look. (Sigh.) Since I can't go play golf right now I have been trying to work on drills and small movements but I Realize I am not sure what to work on or why things are not working out better for me.
I always have a chicken wing at impact.
I always seem to turn with my shoulders / upper body and end up swinging over / above the ball.
I have only recently realized I should shift the weight to my left leg (i thought it had to stay centered the whole time) and the that has helped; i used to top it 80% of the time (honestly, I don't know how i've persevered as long as I have!!)
I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks for looking at these!!
I hope I have embedded these.
down the line:
A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score).
Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
