Hi all,

Just thought I'd post up a more recent version of my swing and see what people think. Any comments/criticisms are welcome. All three shots were fairly well struck. The 3rd was slightly thin if I remember correctly.



Cheers,
James

Thanks mate. Mmm, you wouldn't think so till you see my short game, and that's where my attention is focused at the moment. I haven't handed in a card in a while, so that largely explains why its stuck where it is.

Typical miss depends on the day. If I'm swinging well then its usually a block. On a bad swinging day I can lunge at the ball and hit pulls/slices cause I get on top of it and leave the blade open.

ya looks better than most 17s. hell looks better than most single digits i play with. but full swing is not the most important thing i guess. only thing i could say is it is too long for my taste, and if you were a student i would shorten it up considerably, for consistency and control. theres a certain place where if i pause it it looks like a really really sound backswing, and then it keeps going to your real backswing and its way longer. just a thought

yep, shorten that swing and itll help the block. when your hands have longer to go with the club they get stuck tryin to catch up to your hips and leave it out to the right. try to just get the club to parallel where you can't see it out of your left periphreal vision. and the pull slice is just the opposite. u try to go at it hard so your hands get ahead. usually try to keep really goin after a ball down to once a round or so. hope this helps a little

From what I could tell, it looks real solid. What is your typical miss? I'm trying to put this swing together with a 17+hcp and it doesn't fit.

Haha, thats the exact thing i thought and as i was reading down before putting my post you said the exact same thing i was going to post. Unreal. Anyways from the looks of your swing it is pretty solid, the only thing i could see is your club face may be a little closed at impact resulting in a hook or a pull hook. I would have to see a side view to be sure. But does not look bad at all and was thinking you must not be that good at driving or putting if your a 17 handicapp. Keep up the good work and may all your balls fly straight.

Nice swing. Your take back on your back swing is a little inside producing a bit of a flatter swing. Upon impact I can see that your shoulders/hands move a little quicker, producing outside in pull/ pull slice effect. At impact it seems your hips are shoulders are aligned.

I have a similar problem with my swing, i'm slowly fixing my downswing to come down flatter for a inside out swing. Film a side view of you swing

Overall great swing bro, i can tell you can really wack the ball far!

OK that makes sense. The only thing I saw is that your right elbow gets trapped behind your hip coming down into impact. Same swing fault causes both the block and the hook- flip your hands through to catch up= hook/ keep hands passive=block.

There's plenty of drills on youtube you can search to find one that works for you. Good luck-

Great swing James. To reiterate some things is2linda and a few others touched on. . . The good: Smooth swing, great tempo and no extraneous movements, maintains spine angle. I really like the posture in the first swing and the position of the hands underneath the chin, in the last two swings you seem more bent over from the waist. The meh. . .not-so-good: 1. For an iron, the swing is a bit too long....past parallel? 2. On your takeaway the club travels inside the toe line too quickly and is no longer in front of your chest as the it reaches waist height. A bit too much roll of the forearms perhaps. As you come down into impact the club will get stuck. This is what causes your block and snap hook as your hands will eithersave it, over compensate or hit the block/push. I like a flatter swing though. It seems a flatter swing is what they are teaching nowadays. I admire your courage to put your swing online and have it scrutinized. . . it says a lot about your attitude towards golf. Keep up the good work James. Of the 3, which was your best swing? My guess would be the first. Hey, I'm a 23 handicap...what do I know? laughs.

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use/exposure at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
