My Swing (midweston)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: Give or take 5 years (3 seriously trying to improve)

My current handicap index or average score is: 15 or so handicap

My typical ball flight is: High

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: All misses  :) I typically miss with a fade with my current swing.

Where I think i'm at:  I feel I have the potential to be a decent player. I played college baseball (pitcher). I am battling a flip/cast/early release at impact and have been trying to eliminate it and as a result improve my ball striking and also distance with my clubs. My driver ss is just under 110 mph. I am only capable most times of hitting my best 8 iron 150 yards. Let me know what you think...thanks!

Your wrist cocks very late compared to a lot of swings. It's not  a "swing killer" but it's easier to hold the wrist cock and not flip it if you cock the wrist earlier.

Flippin? really? It just doesn't look like it'd be a big problem to me. The only thing I'd say is that the swing's too long and it looks like there's very little acceleration from your horizontal club position to contact. So the swing looks like it's maxed out(speed wise) well before contact.

Have you used a resistance club like a swing fan or "lag rag" (google that)before? That'l give you the feeling of making power in the last half of your downswing. Give it a go.

Also, when you start to get a bit more grunt into that last bit of your swing, you'll be able to get rid of that "John Daly" extended back swing.

Also, you've got a good swing

I agree with all that. Looking back it doesn't really seem like you're flipping, maybe the tiniest bit too soon but nothing that is a problem. I think the length of your swing is a problem, the right elbow is getting too far behind and can't "catch up" by impact, so it comes out to in
