My swing (bentvalve)

5 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for:​ Playing for 15yrs off and on, been playing weekly for the past 2yrs My current handicap index or average score is: Currently playing to a 12 handicap My typical ball flight is: a mid flight The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pushing the ball right It's funny how we always head to the course thinking we got it figured out or we're gonna try something different. Golf is definitely a constant work in progress. I don't think there is another activity that has so much fun and frustration packed into 4 hrs. Anyways heres my hack [video]http://youtu.be/dHbArx83jBY[/video]

@bentvalve it looks like you are not transferring weight forward into impact.  I would guess you may have some low point issues with your irons as well.  Maybe hitting shots fat every now and then?

Check out this thread here:

I also think a good recommendation for you would be to try this drill:

Thanks Cipher for the input and the link, you mentioned that I might have an issue hitting it fat from time to time. I took a lesson awhile back and the instructor taught me the "stack and tilt" on my loftier clubs (8i on up) which seemed to help with my accuracy a bit and actually took a consistent 4 to 5 strokes off my game. Now it seems as though the "stack and tilt" is leaking down to my long irons and I have been hitting shots fat!!

@bentvalve - your camera is a little too far to the right for good analysis. Try to line it up so it is shooting directly down your toe line. This will make it easier for people to see what's really going on and to provide good advice.

Also, as it appears that your priority piece is most likely tied to weight shift (Key#2 as @cipher pointed out) you should try to upload some face-on video which is generally more helpful for diagnosing key#2 issues.

Good luck and happy golfing!

    • I'm not really a fan of putter wells to begin with. I think, though, that putting them on the side means they can interfere with the straps and things on push carts. Or on a driving cart, can get stuck between the two bags. Putting them on the "front" makes sense to me.
    • No, I haven't heard of the exotics.  Yea, I will look for that CB3.  I tried pretty much all they had for demos at the golf shop and they were all the same...cantaloupe on a stick; but they were all the latest tech.  It would take me a long time to get used to that.  I feel like getting used to it would mean just forgetting what it feels like to be in control of my driver and trusting the technology.  Which is probably not a bad thing....but I don't really want to make that sacrifice.  Getting the feedback from shots is important for me to know what I did right or wrong on the swing.  Is that r7 425 a 425cc head?  I mean, the 510 is only 330CC...using those giant things at the shop was incredibly different in a bad way(for me.)
    • Hi guys! My name is Tony, A newbie golfer from Vegas, 
    • Sorry, no. Like many things in golf… people are always seeking the "secret" or the quick and easy way to solve things. They latch onto things. They get persuaded into thinking "I've finally found it!" Some get stuck in that phase longer than others. Whether it's Ben Hogan followers, Mike Austinites, etc. there are pockets of these people all over golf. I, obviously, prefer 5 Simple Keys®. No "secrets," and it encompasses all the things EVERY good player actually DID, not what one player thinks they did, or others say they did.
    • And… http://www.golf.com/ap-news/jordan-roethlisberger-timberlake-play-bethpage Not really. Many of the players broke 100. And that, as John pointed out, is the U.S. Open course. Local Qualifiers are played at a regular course set up for regular play. They barely do anything for sectional qualifying… This isn't a U.S. Open course. I think that if the 20 is a LEGIT 20, he breaks 127 the majority of the time. I know how bad bad golfers can be, but 126/18 is 7 per hole. For every five, you can make a 9. There are going to be holes where he makes a nine or a ten, sure, but there are going to be holes where he makes a 3, 4, or 5. One time. You've also seen him make a birdie, I presume… and probably far more often than you've seen him make a 19. There aren't 4-5 carts following guys in local qualifying. That's not how the local qualifying courses are typically set up. They're played pretty much under regular conditions. This.
