My Swing (cjohnprix)

6 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 88

My typical ball flight is: low on rescue club

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

Hi Everyone,

New to the forum.

Any advice is very apperciated, this is only my 1st year of golf.

I try and make it to the range almost everyday. I have been shooting high 80s consistenly for the last two months at various courses but I am trying to become more consistent when getting off the tee box.

My irons are very consistent and save me a lot of strokes.

I am having some troubles with my hybrid club and 3 wood. (driver I dont even bother with)...


Some good shots - Some bad shots - trying to figure out the differences!!

Hybrid Club:

Great shot.

Iron shot:

Iron shot 2:

3 wood : Awful. Topped it the first 2 swings, last swing is a nice 250 yrd slight fade.

Looks like you don't get your weight to the left side effectively which explains a lot of the tops and thins. Also it appears you stand too far away from the ball, which may explain the hook.

Thank you for the feedback.

I tried working on my body rotation and coiling yesterday.

Here is a down the line shot:

Please help.

Gotta work on camera angles. Need momentum moving to your front foot. To ingrain this I used to: Address the ball as normal, then pull my left foot back to my right(rear) foot. Swing to the top and step into the ball and swing simultaneously. Swing easy and don't actually hit the ball Then do the same thing, but hit the ball. Hit a few this way, then try to bring your weight shift into a normal swing with feet planted. Just never go full baseball mode!

    • My phone and computer autocorrect c to k. His is with a c. Yes pretty easy. If you know where you're trying to get it of course. There's nothing that magically puts it in the right spot.
    • Fascinating necrothread. Making a full shoulder turn is one of the biggest areas I personally need to work on. I almost feel like you have to make the full turn in order to unwind in the right sequence. There are two limiting factors for me, 1., back stiffness (it takes me forever to warm up/loosen up) and 2., fear of swaying/hitting fat.  I can play my irons just fine with truncated swings, even if they are about 90%. However I know that until I feel confident making a full turn I will never hit my driver well.  if someone has a drill I'd be interested to know it. 
    • Yes, I know what is typically proposed and taught regarding squaring the club and the release, which I believe, is also WHY most golfers hit short and right.   What may come natural to some golfers ie., squaring the not at all natural to the majority. Most, pull their lead elbow through impact with the club face wide open and never come close to developing any significant speed, much less hitting the ball in the fairway.   Using the technique I described yesterday, I hit a 318 yd drive, a 309 yd drive and other 280 to 290 yd drives. And I am fast approaching 68 years old.   Not only that, I really don't need to put much effort into it. Robb
    • Because there are several other things that are on the ballot that matter as much, if not more.  This election, we have 16 or 17 state propositions, a senate seat, house seat, state senate and assemby seats, and all the local stuff as well. If those don't matter to somebody then I'd suspect that somebody would be more likely to recognize that the presidential election isn't going to be decided by one vote anyway. I'll concede that it might increase based on the advertising campaign you suggested, but I don't think it would be very significant.
    • Is his name spelled with a C or a K? I like the idea and see it being very beneficial. It's a practical device that seems like it was born out trying to teach people how to get the club on the right path. I agree that having a weight hook could be beneficial. I don't know if it would stay up on a windy day. Hard to tell without actually feeling how heavy or stable it is.  Issues / Concerns: When I heard the name, I thought "chili dipper" which isn't exactly a positive image. I am concerned with setting it up properly. Is it easy enough to make sure that the bar is on the right angle and height?
