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. 😄

    • This season I purchased my third pair of Foot Joy Classic spiked shoes. I find they last for years, (I guess that depends on how much you play, I play like once or trice a week but not in the winter). For me they are very comfortable and I like the classic look, plus the price is right.
    • I think you need to be respectful of people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. I also think what JT said was disrespectful. He said he was sorry, and I believe him. Hopefully, this will make him aware that words can be hurtful. 
    • I like the sklz ball first trainer for hitting off a mat.  Feedback for hitting fat, hitting at the toe, hitting towards the hosel. But they are not making them anymore.  My has a crack in it, I think I'll try to make one with that small sheet of polycorbonate.   Me too, same problems with my swing. I have corrected it but sometimes regress. For me I focus on steady head through back swing until contact, and shift weight to front foot at the start of the downswing. (Key 1 and 2 of the 5 simple keys).  I also sight a spot about an inch in front of the ball as my contact point.
    • I definitely hit a lot of fat shots.  I just have trouble hitting the ball first and I am bad about coming over the top. I am 74.  Been playing off and on for years.  My parents probably couldn't  have afforded lessons but I can see that would have been the thing to do.  I have been doing things wrong for years and it will be hard to change.  I got me a new net.  Just going to start fixing self and hit a lot of balls if I can.  I have a good idea of what I am doing wrong but I don't  know if I can change it. I was going to try and change to the single plane swing.  I had better luck with the driver than the irons. Thanks for the ideas.
