My Swing (cnl390)

8 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for one year after not playing for 43.

My current average score is around 113.

My typical ball flight is fairly high & straight when I get a good strike.

The shot I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is a big hook with my long irons and woods.  I would also like to consistently have good ball strikes.  I still top and blade the ball a lot.

This video's getting a lot of play, but consider the top of your backswing position, and check this out:

This is an image of my swing using the Zepp swing analyzer.  All my swings ate like this.  Black line is backswing, and blue is downswing.  It appears to me it is out, in, then a little jog back out and in, then back out.  I am pretty sure this could be one of my big problems.

I've been Playing Golf for: 3
My current handicap index or average score is: 35
My typical ball flight is: medium
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: miss hits & slice

Can you post a video. I cannot be sure what the black line actually is. Is it your hand path or clubhead path?

The lines are the club head.  In the app the swing is animated and the swing info is not at the bottom.  But this is how it comes out when I hit share.  The app also shows hand track and club plane.  Also different views. I'm going to check if the animation can be shared.  Thanks

Looks like you bring the clubhead in too far to start the backswing and then throw it out and come over the top, but without seeing your real swing I would be guessing.

    • Final chapter - mystery solved......and boy am I a "dufus".......like "DUH".... The hosel adapter for Tour Edge Exotics has a short 1.75 inch sleeve that slips over the attachment screw to hold the screw straight (and prevent cross threading I presume).  Somehow when the shaft was removed, the sleeve had slid up into the shaft, hidden from view. The shaft (with hidden sleeve) was then installed into another standard head and during installation, had gotten loose and was free to slide up and down the shaft. When I bonded the shaft to the head, I had given it a small tap on the grip end to seat the shaft which is recommended practice by some fitters. This action would have presumably forced the sleeve up in the shaft and due to larger diameter of the shaft, was free to slide. I don't feel too bad however, as I had made a telephone call to a local fitter, and he was dumfounded as well. 
    • I think a qualified fitter should be able to provide that info! Of course, I have to allow for the fact that, like a medical diagnosis, @Spring1 is simply looking for a second opinion, albeit from complete and total strangers who have never seen him swing a club. Look, @Spring1, I'm not trying to be rude here, nor is anyone else. It's just that your question confuses us a bit. And don't let this "grilling" scare you away. We're honestly curious and would like to help. FWIW, graphite shafts are lighter than steel. So, if you stick the same length graphite into a formerly steel shafted iron, it's going to monkey with the swingweight. It will make it lighter! To compensate, most manufacturers will make the graphite shafted clubs slightly longer to get the swingweight back up. The question is whether or not you can hit those longer irons as accurately as the originals. You should be allowed to hit both models and make a decision from that. And, I notice that you're a 39, and you mentioned the Ping brand in particular. So, I'm guessing this was a "golf store" fitting, and not a "custom clubmaker" fitting. Then another possibility presents itself. Maybe @Spring1 is wondering whether the store "fitter" is trying to upsell him into something more expensive, or something they need to move! All that matters is performance. Do the clubs work for you? And, of course, I could be entirely wrong about everything I've typed above and made a complete fool of myself! But then, I (and we) could use a bit more info.
    • Saw something intresting during my round the other day.my home club here in new zealand has a pretty relaxed dress code.and I was in my normal sort of outfit for a warm day.plain shorts,and a plain blue Nike t-shirt with no graphics or logos on it.no knee length white socks thou lol.and saw a visitor to our club dressed in golf pants and a polo. But his polo had a big skull and crossbones on it with the skull smoking.just playing devils advocate here,but it would be intresting to see what happened if he turned up at the only course in our area that stipulates a collar.ild argue that a plain t-shirt looks a lot better.(all thou as i said in the original post i always stick a polo on when i play at that club)
    • He's still young too thou,is it a case of just needing to mature a bit.and get a bit more experience.(how old is he exactly i know his early 20s?) I know he's not the same type of players but i seem to remember sergio garcia having a lot of blow up holes when he was younger,and losing his temper a lot more over it.and he seems to have matured into a much more composed player these days. That said ild take Jordan's game over mine in a heartbeat 
    • Could be the greens you play.  There is one course I play ocassionally that has greens that are not too fast but are hard.  It's hard to make a ball mark, it's hard to stop the ball.  You have to try to adjust to the roll.
