My Swing (ygmondoux)

8 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 8 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 5

My typical ball flight is: High

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: hook

Trying to perfect my swing again this year, overall even if there's no ball I feel it may be the best swing I've had so far. So I'll keep on working on it no reconstruction.

I have to find a way to get my chin out of the way as my head moves a bit at the end of the backswing.

The embedded video isn't available. If the video in the link is the same, next time make sure you're hitting a ball in it. Or at the very least on grass. Your swing looks good, nice tempo and on balance but again it's just a practice swing. Not trying to sound like a jerk or anything, it's just that you'll get better (and more qualified) help with your swing if you are hitting balls.

Yeah you are right, I'll post a swing where I hit a ball as soon as the driving range open here in Montreal. But I don't think it will change much, we will see.

YG,

My head moves a little to the right as I bring the club back.  It used to be a lot...but less now.  A tip I got from Golf Digest helped me.  They said "keep your head up...and use your eyes to look down."  Keeping my head higher helped create clearance.

Just a thought,

Michael

I wouldn't put your head up like that. Part of good posture is keeping your eyes straight at the ball. http://thesandtrap.com/t/56069/good-golf-posture Also, it looks like your leg action is a little off. Your right leg comes up too soon, IMO. In my swing, I let the club pull my leg up as it comes through. I used to pull my trailing leg up trying to go into impact, which leads to inconsistency. It should feel like your weight rolls your feet over towards the target.

I agree on the head I've tried everything and for me it's better when I just look straight down at the ball.

I've tried very hard to let my right foot on the ground in the past I feel like it throws my timing off and I can't produce my usual clubhead speed, do you know a great drill to work on this?

I kick my right knee inward a bit at address and press down on the ground with my right instep. I focus on keeping that pressure throughout my swing and all the way through impact. The key is to keep the weight inside, it's easy to keep the weight just on your right side which leads to all kinds of problems. Keep in mind that this is me giving an 5 hc advice, so take it with a grain of salt. Hope it helps

Please post a swing hitting a golf ball. Practice swings aren't terribly useful.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
