My Swing (Johbo)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 1,5 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 17,2 (average score is 87-93 on home course par 72) 
My typical ball flight is: high fade
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: hitting behind the ball (semi/half chunks), Accuracy

I have been struggling with the occasional semi chunk with my irons so my goal has been to hit the ball more consistently and also adding more distance. 

I had a couple of lessons to try and fix this. A few key points that I have worked on since those lessons in November is: 

A higher and slower back swing, Placing the ball on the middle of my stance (it use to be slightly forward), Follow through and turn with my swing rather than getting stuck and stretching my arms up.


Thanks for the help. 

Old swing at the end of the Swedish golf season (Sept/Oct 2020)

New Swing

Now I hit the ball higher and longer. I have gained about 10-15% extra distance with my irons and a normal shot is now a high draw instead of a fade. 

But I am struggling with my accuracy and the odd left hook. 

Any tips or should I just keep training with my new swing to get more used to it ?

They work for me so I am not sure which settings I should update. 

And I cannot edit my post on the forum

They work for you on YouTube. You've likely turned off the setting that allows them to be embedded on other sites.

I get this when I paste the URL in and the site here tries to auto-embed:



If you change the setting, you can create a new post with embedded videos, and we may even merge that post back up into the first one so your videos are embedded in the page.

P.S. On YouTube, there's an "Allow embedding" checkbox.

    • Look as if my driving improvement is on track. I hit 6/7 fairways this morning, the other I was barely in the second cut.  Not going to complain about distance, even if the driver I am finding the short stuff with is 20 yards shorter than the driver I was gaming last season. KId pulled an old Ping G400 off the shelf and told me to try it, It works! Very forgiving, and long enough for me.....
    • I own a U-iron (gap wedge loft, I think Ping calls it a utility iron?) and a 50 degree Ping Glide in that loft.  I alternate them depending how I feel.  Right now, I'm on the U-iron, and I made two full swings with it that hit the green.  Sadly, neither was for GIR, but that's hardly that club's fault  
    • My fault, he came to me for a putting lesson and I taught him everything I know. Didn't I pick Xander?
    • My Dad was a purist... but not very sports savvy.  I grew up in St. Louis and when he learned the players on the Cardinals weren't from St. Louis that was it for him.  So for my Dad, the game was ruined years ago.
    • Looks like @onthehunt526 and I made the same pick (true I was first though), but Jordan needs to go on a run if he's going to get to -14 and win.
