My Swing (throli)

Recommended Posts

throli    0

I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years

My current handicap index or average score is: 10ish

My typical ball flight is: Straight/draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: My typical misses are pushing the ball left or hitting hit a little thick

Any opinions on the swing? Anything obvious im doing wrong? It feels like some days the swing tend to be different from the good days. The club feels heavy and im loosing focus. Then i start making changes in my swing and end up getting frustrated and pshyced out :( Keeping the consistency is a huge problem... The videos below shows me hitting a 7 iron.

I see your hips sliding back toward your right, probably a bit to much. As was posted above, the videos on the 5 keys will help a bunch. Best to practice the drills at about 30% of your normal speed, to get them ingrained. Key #1 and # 2 should help, but it's best to only work on 1 thing at a time, until you get that 1 piece down pat, then move on to the next drill, it works.

BTW...welcome to TST. There's a ton of great info here, and the jokers on here are pretty cool. Enjoy your stay.

Yes agree with what others have said. Would just add that you should turn both feet out at address (left pic below). Your feet are square and the knees are rotated inward, want to try and do the opposite, will help with the pivot to keep the head steady.

Arrows on the right pic show the right side "stretching" up while the left shoulder goes down, would be good to incorporate more of that feel when working on the head movement.

    • Okay, I gave you those (and removed the 80 one). An 11 index broke par, eh?
    • Trust me, it happens and not due to abuse. I broke a brand new macGregor 3 iron on the very first swing at the driving range after pops bought me the clubs. On my downswing, the head flew off as soon as the ball was hit.The ball bounded about ten feet to the right, the head about 10 yards to the left. The driver I posted above was about 15 years old and never abused. It was my all time favorite club so it was well cared for and I am too cheap to bust clubs out of childish fits of rage. The club also hadn't been used in a decade, then maybe 20 strikes this summer, just as the OP said, head dangling off strands of graphite. The guy who is repairing it has had a hell of a time extracting the shaft from the hosel, too.
    • Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product.  Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls.  The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours.  The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up.  Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball.  I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen.  I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.
    • Dropped off some old golf shorts and shirts at a local Goodwill store today, My waist size is now 32", and the 34's and 36's were falling off of me! I kept some of the nicer 34's just in case! After the drop off I went into the store to see if there were any golf clubs worth looking at. The selection was pretty sparse, but I did find a Taylor Made R580XD and an original Callaway ERC II! The ERC II even has a stamping on the heel of the club that states, "Non-conforming to USGA rules". This was the club that made for the big kerfuffle, and lawsuit, between Callaway and the USGA. I bought them both and will go try them out. Considering modern golf technology, I'm not expecting much. But, if I can't hit them, I'll pass them on. Maybe the next guy can. At 2 bucks a club, how could I go wrong?! Dang! I hit the J instead of the H in the title!
    • Not a bad idea. I have some impact stickers on their way in the mail, when they get here I'll try that out, thanks!
