Backswing help before this drives me insane!

3 posts in this topic

I started playing around a year and a half ago and I've recently dropped my handicap from 28 down to 20.4, however, I seem to be changing my backswing every shot and can't get a consistent feel to it causing the odd sweet connection to a lot of fats and thins.

I've recently had a lesson and I was working on the shoulder turn to try and stop my head from dipping down but I've now got a feeling of my arms lifting up and away from me slightly as opposed to going behind my shoulder on the takeaway/backswing which I see on tv all the time.  I've had a friend take a photo of a practice swing but it doesn't look like the club is way ahead of my body and is slightly more round my body.

Basically I'm wondering if the shoulder turn should give you the feeling that you're arms go slightly in front of you but they're really not on the takeaway and backswing?  I know this might not make sense but I'm trying to word it the easiest way.

I would suggest filming a My Swing video.  http://thesandtrap.com/f/4180/member-swings

Tough to say how it should feel for YOU when I don't know what the swing looks like.

These videos might help

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

More than a few of the people I golf with tend to be too mechanical or more so too contorted in their swing. If you put an old style weed cutter (steel shaft fat wood handle) in their hands and have them cut the tall weeds you would be amazed at their fluid swings. But put a golf club in their hand and it all goes haywire.

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
