My Swing (saevel25)


Recommended Posts

So, if I just tame my overswing I could have a handicap like yours? :-P  Obviously not, I don't have nearly the right impact position. Though I never thought that having the ball too far back in my stance would be the cause of my flipping at the ball. In all honesty, it is nice to know that making a small*ish* change to my swing like shortening my backswing could result in some major improvements in striking like you've indicated. If you could be honest with me here, Matt, how much of my problem would you say is simply a product of my overswing?

An easy way to tell is to go play 9 holes swinging 66.66666667% and see what your score is.

Went up to Erie for the first lesson of 2021! Just a summary of things I worked on.  Setup 1. Less upper body axis tilt 2. Less hands pushed forward 3. Weight more 50/50 Bet

Went up to Erie, PA for a lesson today :) Set up adjustment First was adjusting my set up to help me with my backswing and downswing. More axis tilt away from the target at address. Le

Some notes from hitting the ball decently well this past weekend in Virginia.  Backswing 1. Start swing with right hip back.  2. Add a small bit hinge and height with arms. Downswing 1.

I recognize that putting green.

It looks like your through stroke is a but longer than your back stroke.

Well one problem is I can't take my putter back consistently the same. Sometimes I want to take it to the outside, it just gets all terrible feeling. That and I heel a TON of putts as well.

Again, re: Ernest Jones, you're leaning too far left at setup. No one good does that.

Right shoulder lower a bit, tilt more rightward, weight more evenly distributed.

Graeme's no.2 in strokes gained putting this year. Luke is no.6 I think:

Snedeker: He's not leaning leftward. Right shoulder lower.

You'll notice Brad Faxon leans his lower body a little leftward like you do, but his upper center is tilted the other direction.

Grip's another thing you may want to look into as well at some point. Perhaps more unified hands.

Two problems, easy to fix:

SAM PuttLab will show you the way to putting enlightenment.

On Sunday.

I NEED SAM!!!

I don't know why, but the line, "SAM PuttLab will show you the way to putting enlightenment." just cracked me up.

You don't need SAM.

SAM will just make it easier for you to get where you need to go more quickly and accurately.

Your problems are pretty evident without a $6k putting contraption. :-)

Guys, I did say without the machine.

It just measures things far, far more accurately than you can do with your eyes.

Pretty much, but using fancy technology is so much fun :-D

By the two images you posted I am going to guess,

First, that wrist angle in my left hand is probably not very good for a putting stroke.

Second, the putter head ascends to much in the backswing.

Nope.

Stop guessing. :)

Dah, oh well. :whistle:

I guess for my golf league tonight I might just speed my putting process up, just give it whack before my mind starts going onto different tangents on what is going wrong. Instinctual putting!!!

Pick a spot 4 inches in front of the ball and roll it over that.
