My Swing (awmgolfer)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: I've been seriously golfing for the past 14 years but been playing 30+ years on and off.

My current handicap index or average score is: 2.9

My typical ball flight is: High with irons and generally a cut shot with longer clubs.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Loss of about 20 yards due to losing all my lag early in the swing.

I have never had great lag into impact but up till this year it was a little better then what it is now. This year I have lost 15-20 yards with my irons only since I am adding loft at impact. My woods hit great and still get the good yardage I have had for the past 10 years, it is just the irons. I know I am too inside on my takeaway and currently working on that, it's just the early release I can't seem to figure out. I only have a face on video for the moment as the down the line didn't come out right but will try to get one up shortly! Thanks in advance!!

I definitely know I have an interesting swing but I can consistently repeat it. I always tell the kids do as I say and not as I do…lol. I actually figured out what I was doing that at least put me back to my normal yardages. My hips were facing the ball at impact instead of being a little more angled forward. I was also cupping a bit, as soon as I fixed both of those my yardages were back to normal. 
 

When I went from hitting my 8 iron 155 to barely hitting it 135 yards it became quite frustrating. There really are no competent instructors near me so I’m mainly left on my own. I coach our golf team so I can usually figure out the fixes but this one took me a while!

Getting forward with more shaft lean at impact (and "longer arms" through impact) is a clear top-two or -three priority item.

That's why you have a back ball position. You flip.

This winter I have access to a simulator that is being left with me so I am planning to start working through a few other issues. Nice time to do it when you have 6 months of winter!
