My Swing (swilllx2p)

4 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 2 Years, Used to play in school..

My current handicap index or average score is: 20

My typical ball flight is:  High Fade

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  Push Fade , Somtimes Push Full Slice

Someone please take a look and help me, I'm not pushing balls at least not much with my irons...this is honestly killing my love for this game.  I apologize for my boxers showing a bit on my follow through.  You can clearly see the orange ball I'm hitting start way right of my target.  I just need to know what is causing it and maybe some drills to try to correct it.  I want to fix this and i'm willing to work hard at doing so.


Also If needed Just let me know and i'll upload more videos from different angles are whatever is needed, I tried to get this one in slo mo but i'm not sure it worked.

Welcome to the site. I am relatively new here too (and to the game), and am not good at recognizing priority pieces and cannot specifically say what is causing push hits. That said, I can offer what I see for what it is worth.

It appears that you are all arms on the back swing with little shoulder rotation. Try rotating your upper torso more, and keeping your arms in front of you. Along the same lines, your back swing looks a little flat to me. Rotate your left should down more to increase that angle a little. The clubhead also appears to go inside quickly. I think the torso rotation and steeper shoulder turn will help with this.

I think there may be a few set-up things to address - less knee bend, chin and eyes down, but the set-up is something I am working on too, so I will not say anymore as I do not have that down.

Again, take that for what it is worth. Sorry I do not have much time to grab screen shots right now, but some more seasoned guys and the pros will come along eventually and offer more - possibly even say ignore what I said ;) which is more than fine. Just trying to learn along with everyone else.

Thank you, I very much appreciate you taking a look and the advice you gave.  I can see what your saying for sure, I'm going to give rotating my shoulders more on the backswing a shot.  I would be very interested to see what others have to say on my swing as well!

I kind of felt before like my hands are way out in front of the club head and thats what was causing the push?  Is that possible as well?  Will the shoulders turning more help this?

Couple things.

- Lessen the knee flex at address and "soften" the upper back. Back is too straight, let it slump a bit.

- Flare both feet out at address, will allow the right knee to decrease in flex on the backswing so the right hip can continually "stretch" on the backswing.

Couple videos that will add a visual to what I just said.

    • I took a quick look at the beginning video before I purchased the GG, and ignored the "friendly hawker guy." After looking at the swingsetter ad, and speed stick -- the Gabe Golf Trainer is different. Leds doesn't really pause at the top with the swingsetter, the speed stick is a device for speed. With the GG Trainer, it's not about hearing the bearings snap at impact. You are getting better sequencing of the swing and tempo. Yes, you will have a long pause at the top using it, but with your regular club you will not pause  long - the objection to the long pause with the Trainer does not carry over to your regular club. Your lower body is working at the top, instead of the arms. If you go back too fast and incorrectly, you will know, if you do not sequence properly, you will know. For example. if you use your arms going back instead of the body, and the club gets stuck, I found the bearings will not go down the shaft. If you get too laid off, the bearings tend not to go down the shaft. If you grab the club and start down with your arms, you will hit dirt or mishit. If you sequence properly with the lower body - you will hit better shots. When you swing with your regular club, you will not pause -- it will look like a pause because your lower body is working and you are not grabbing the club from the top. As a result, the swing is not paused with your regular club, but the proper sequence is utilized. Good luck.
    • Lemme guess, you broke 80 yesterday?  And good luck earning a participation site badge (or an organizer badge). I'd imagine we've got quite a few folks in your area. I've done a couple meetups here with guys I met here, and it's definitely cool to be faces to the names and online personas.
    • Welcome! If you're looking for good instructional threads, here are a bunch to get you started:  To learn how things work around here, browse some of the stuff under "How To..." up at the top menu bar.  Mainly, just be a decent guy, chime in on stuff that interests you, and you'll be fine around here.
    • Hi all I was quite intrigued by the latest talk of sidesaddling so I tried it out. I struggled a bit with consistency so I tried sitting on my haunches with right hand near bottom of shaft and left on the grip. I was very surprised by my accuracy. Now I just want to know if this stance is legal. I can not find anything in the rulebook that forbids this. Anyone out tried this before?
