My Swing (CustardOnChips)

I've been Playing Golf for: 22 years. I started when I was 19 after quitting playing ice hockey. From first picking up club to getting down to single figures took 4 years. Then another 4 to get down to my lowest HC of 5.5. Then work and life got in the way and it slowly crept up to 7 over a couple of years and I stopped playing. I didn't touch my clubs for 4 years, then played maybe once or twice a year at work events. Then last year I started to play a bit more as my son declared an interest in playing. Over the last 12 months I've played maybe 8 full rounds and 15 times on a par 3 pitch and putt. 

I've never been a long hitter as such, but used to have very good distance control and a very consistent ball flight. I'm a picker more than a digger. 

My current handicap index or average score is: Don't have an official HC but shoot low 90s.
My typical ball flight is: Mid, with a fade bias. 
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: My bad shot with a driver is high push slice off the toe. Similar with irons but at the minute I'm flatting or topping a lot of iron shots. 

My flexibility is terrible, mostly due to a neck and sternum injury. 

Watching the video I think I need to stand more upright and closer to the ball. I tried that and completely fresh aired 2 in a row 🤪

Welcome to The Sand Trap. Thanks for posting. You have a pretty athletic swing. Can you post a face on view and maybe do them in slow motion? For the down-the-line, have the camera along your toe line.

The grip looks a bit off. Almost like a 10 finger grip. Maybe slightly too much in the palm of the left hand. 

I would say, too much hinging in the arms and wrist from the start of the backswing. The body turn should carry the club back.

    • Came across this video last night. Impressive.  
    • Tough week for my whoop so far ...haha. I ran off and left it yesterday morning when I left for work. And this morning, I ran off and left my charger. We had a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and some other things happened that had my mind in other places. I should have told my wife to wait a few days. Her whoop should be here today.
    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
