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!

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
