Impact Position on Practice Swing is Good, But Flipping on Actual Shot?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

First post on this forum but looking forward to using it to improve my game. Started playing golf around 5 months ago and now I'm hitting a regular mid to high 80's at my local course. I Noticed I was flipping at impact due to hitting a fair few fat shots, so did a lot of work on trying to stop it. Now im at the stage where i could do 100 practice swings and get it right every time, but whenever I hit the ball with the same feels I still end up flipping?

 

Any advise would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks

Jason

Jason, welcome to The Sand Trap. I would suggest you start a My Swing Thread in the Member Swings section. We can see what is happening better there. Remember to read the notes on how to film your swing, i.e., camera angles and slow motion.

Things you don't have to worry about on a practice swing:

  • Hitting the ball a certain distance
  • Hitting the ball on the center of the clubface
  • Hitting the ball first and then taking a little divot
  • Hitting the ball on your intended start line

People's practice swings are always better than their "real" swing. (I'm not counting good players who will often just exaggerate something that isn't their "real swing" at all, but exaggerates a feel.)

And, we can have a conversation about this.

Often, too, a lot of people will have the shaft leaning forward on a practice swing… with the face WIDE open.

Welcome to TST Jason.   Recording your swing will help the experts here give your some great advice.  

He got that advice already. We can also have a discussion about practice swings.

Let’s be careful about volunteering others to give free advice, too. 🙂

iacas, 

After reviewing some more practice swings your absolutely right about the club face. It was WIDE open 🤣

There you go. The trick, obviously, is to make a swing with that shaft lean without having to flip the hands to square the face. 😄

    • The Original is a very good shoe. Not the best in hot weather, as it can get a little sweaty (that's just logical - if you want a waterproof leather shoe). And of the Knits, the original is a very good shoe, too. I see what you mean about the higher back, but it's pretty soft IMO. Do you wear a sock that goes up that high, or is it rubbing skin? I don't like a high back, either, but if I'm being specific I don't like a high back that's more solid or firmer. These are like socks, very "huggy" without digging in or rubbing much. The Knits are some of my favorite shoes. I wear them everywhere. Teaching. Playing, when it's at least half dry. Errands. Going out to do anything. They're the first shoe I grab, and the only shoes that I generally have inside the house. The old Knit "I" models will likely be relegated strictly to errand shoes, though, or teaching maybe, as I've worn the tread away. These are the replacements, in spirit, for the original Sensei shoes, which I also loved. Perhaps even more than the Tours. For golf, the Originals win. For everything, the Knits and the Knit Its win, for me, hands down. The TRUE Knit II TRUE Knit II Our most popular model of all time, the TRUE Knit is back and better than ever.

    • Try leaving it as is and putting on a practice green. After 10 putts try adding some sticky lead weight, and from the same distance try 10 more putts. I think you can see where I'm going with this. Whatever weight gives you the most confidence making putts is right for you.
    • Do you play golf with people who say "fa****" when they miss a putt? I hope not. And I get that no-one wants to be a "teacher" out of the classroom, but saying you live in a place where homophobia and acceptance of "hate speech" is the norm is a little concerning. I know exactly what the situation is  - kids swear all of the time and it's normalised to the point where they don't even think they're swearing. They don't care and wonder why anyone, let alone a teacher would have an issue with it. But that's not what this is about, and I'm curious as to why you're putting swearing into the same conversation.  Most schools accept that swearing is wrong and have policies about it. Hard to police and rarely anything beyond poor and immature use of language. Different issue. They also have policies about discrimination, vilification, homophobia and violence. This is what this is about. Any student who utters the word "f+++++" is hopelessly out of touch and would not fit in with the majority of students these days are totally cool with homosexuality and don't see it as a huge deal. And I understand that some states are not as progressive as others. I know you aren't defending JT or saying he did nothing wrong, but if those at the top of the totem pole at your school think that "fa***" is a swear word, they need to be shifted down several places.  
    • @Vinsk that would be interesting I suppose. Hell he has enough of them. I can’t imagine they could do anything about that. He is free to wear what he wants. 
    • I’m sure there are contract issues with it...but it seems a little much to be able to tell someone they can’t wear a shirt. They may not pay him to wear it...but what if he wore RL anyway?
