My Swing (Golfprofi1234)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 3,5 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 15

My typical ball flight is: straight and medium height

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


Videos:

Hey guys! I am 15 years old and I have a big problem, that I already struggle with for like 3 years. It's about kicking in the right knee too early in the downswing (and having the weight too much on the right side at impact).

My teacher already told me that this is my only cause for my fat shots (I don't have much lag because I think I am a bit behind the ball @ Impact), but he doesn't really know how to fix it. I often hit fat shots, and I am very unconsistant in my opinion.

If I try to only pull down my arms in the downswing and not use my legs, I even more shift the weight to the right side in the downswing, which causes even fatter shots! Please help me as good as you can, I often think of stop playing golf because of my bad shots)

Thank you so much!

Your club head is passing your hands through impact. I cannot copy the still shots on my ipad but the frame before impact and at impact show this clearly. Look up "flat left wrist" on the 5 Keys Video thread. Also try hitting punch shots with your hands ahead with your weight into your left side into an abbreviated finish trying to keep the hands ahead to promote a more delayed release. You have a lot of good things going on, but the early release is the issue.

    • Because when an athlete describes what went wrong in a post round interview, it's always 100% accurate. 1. I do play w/ schmucks (myself included).
      2. One of us chokes pretty consistently (one of the schmuckier schmucks we have), and for 10 years he does fine in our $2 nassaus and but only loses $$ in all our "big" games. Even when he's been playing well that year (index down), we play net, so he still loses, and even he admits he just gets the nerves. I'm glad he can be comforted knowing that mental games is a tiny portion of his overall performance.  Gump says "life is like a box of chocolates". I'm allergic to chocolate so this is just wrong, literally, figuratively and in every way. (That was a whole lot of sarcasm.  My mom would kill me if she saw me posting like this.  I do mean it in the most fun way possible)
    • Dustin Johnson has different physical abilities than Jordan Spieth does, none more evident than the playoff at the Northern Trust. That week, Dustin Johnson, the person with the better physical ability, won, and the reason why he won was because he was physically superior to Spieth with his drive on the playoff hole. No, top pros dont have similar physical abilities.  There is over a 40 yard difference between the shortest driving average (271) and the longest driving average (317) on the PGA tour this year. Pros dont have similar physical abilities.
    • Welcome. I know it seems like summer now, and for a bit more, but it's officially fall, lol. Unfortunately, the munis are gonna be a huge letdown compared to the courses you've mentioned , but if you need any info, just holler. 
    • Welcome! Depending on whether or not you drive and where you live in the city, there are plenty of passable courses in the boroughs. Dyker Beach and Marine Park in Brooklyn ok. Short and fun. Clearview in Queens is alright. Staten Island has a bunch of decent courses, but if you dont drive its hard to get out there. Theres always Bethpage Park in Long Island, but it can be a haul from the city too if you dont drive. 
    • Yeah, like what dzclarkcpa was saying, alot depends on the grass and the setup of the course. So many different variables come into play and it really just takes experience to learn how to play out of the rough. If you know a grass range that has some thicker grass on it, practice some there and see what it does to your ball flight and distances.  But generally, the more of the back of the ball you can see, the better you'll be able to control it. That doesn't always mean you'd able to hit your normal full swing shot, but it could mean you can play it differently with reasonable control.
