My Swing (Harvey North)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 3 1/2 years on and off, only had about 3 lessons in total.

My current handicap index or average score is: I recently just finished doing my handicap rounds for my club where I have become a member at and that is 21.

My typical ball flight is: medium height.

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I want to reduce the left to right on my driver but im not quite sure how to.

Welcome to the site Harvey.

Several things to get you started my friend.

1. Video recording FO & DTL - take a look at this thread

2. Flare both of your feet about 20* each and then take a look at this posture thread below.  Flaring the feet will give your hips a little more room to turn and it looks like you have a slight arch in your lower back, so that can be a quick fix you can work on.. Take a look at the thread and it is explained in details.

3. You are basically flipping at the golf ball and you are not shifting your weight to your left foot on the downswing.. you should try and feel as if 95% of your weight is on your left foot by the time of impact and feel like you are squishing a bug when you start the downswing, take a look at this thread for more info.

4. If you are really serious at improving I also suggest you take a look at this thread on the 5 commonalities between all pro golfers called "5SK" i.e. 5 simple keys.

I think this should be enough right about now, I won't be able to really comment much more on your swing until you get some better video, but welcome to the site and I would really recommend you read the below thread as well to get you started!

Good Luck!

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
