My Swing (Trog2233)


Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 20 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 16.7
My typical ball flight is: fade with driver and straight with irons. 
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull hook and slice


Videos: 

Unfortunately I can’t get to the range for a video because we have a foot of snow at the time.  My goal for this year is to improve my ball striking.  Too many fat/thin shots throughout my round.  Any comments are much appreciated.

This is why practice swings don't work. That clubface is probably like 20° open.

Your body "knows" you want "shaft lean" or something, so you shove the hands forward and the face stays wide open. You wouldn't do that hitting a ball - stuff would be different because you'd have to do something to square it up.

Really? I didn’t know that. Thanks Iacas!  I will retake the videos hitting a ball shortly and repost it.

Finally the snow melted and I was able to get to the range. Ball striking has been very bad. Lots of fat and thin shots. Even in the down the line video you can see how I hit it fat.   I feel like I may have too much hip turn but I don’t know. Any help would be great. 
 I apologize... I didn’t realize I did a face on with a driver and down the line 7 iron.

    • Splitting a towel is like splitting a baby. They'll have to have a sudden death playoff. Guessing he streamed it on his phone via the Masters app.
    • Nice. So, how are they? What do you like about them that is different than regular ones. Thanks 
    • Sorry @Club Rat, lol, I missed the person who has a chance of being right! I got you in the updated list below. Great choice/prediction! JS is about the only other chance of all the 'educated guesses. If he wins, will the two split the towel?   Club Rat                 Hedeki Matsuyama -15 Colins69                Tony Finau -11 phillyk                    Patrick Canlay -11 ncates00               Patrick Cantlay -13 nevets88               Rory McIlroy -12 pganapathy            Rory McIlroy -17 Darkfrog               Jordan Spieth -14 onthehunt526       Jordan Spieth -14 woodzie264          Dustin Johnson -14 RickK                     Dustin Johnson -17 iSank                      Dustin Johnson -18 DewSweeper09    Justin Thomas -9 Birdieputt              Justin Thomas -13 Billy Z                    Justin Thomas -14 Zippo                     Bryson DeChambeau -11 Hardspoon            Bryson DeChambeau -15 False hopes          Lee Westwood -11 Yukari                    Collin Morikawa -14 Bucki1968             Paul Casey -10
    • He really middled it. The line looked good too.
    • I stopped playing games like Dark Souls. Games are supposed to be fun, not make me want to throw my controller through my TV.
