My Swing (GlenGee)

9 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: Just got back into it about 2 months ago

My current handicap index or average score is: 24.8

My typical ball flight is: Left to right

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

I have never seen my swing before looking at this video and i now see i come across the ball alot, but i dont know how to change it, Also my dad seems to thing that my arms aren't fully extended when i impact the ball. Let me know if you can help :) Any help is appreciated

Yes, your club path is way left and you need to get it closer to the center line if you want to calm down the slice. Get two Home Depot driveway markers and two Wal Mart pool noodles and do this drill. You may get some odd looks, but you will get better!

Big key for you will be the left knee -- needs to go out toward your left big toe not suck in toward your right big toe. This is no good:

This is what you're looking for.

Ah yes i see i need to get that knee out, never seen a photo like that against mine, I also was watching a video last night to help stop coming over the ball and it made a lot of sense, I'm going out for a game today so i'll see if that improves, and i'll have to try that pool noodle drill.

Just went out for a swing in the backyard thinking about the knee and the video i watched last night, This is the swing that came from it.

Yeah it is, Soon i am going to by the 3baysGSA PRO, This little swing analyzer for androids, that gives out very accurate readings on swing plane and clubs speed and everything, Might even get my coach to swing with it and set to best so i can try replicate his swing. Or get as close as possible.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
