My Swing (slinkee)

5 posts in this topic

I've been playing golf for 7 years.

My current handicap is 10

My typical driver ball flight is a fade, but lately it's turned into a huge, ballooning slice. My irons are much more consistent, although my typical miss with those tends to be either a slight fade or slight draw.

The shot I hate the most and what I'm trying to get rid of is this enormous slice that I've suddenly acquired with my driver over the past few weeks. Looking at my own swing video I see several faults, but wanted to see if you pro's here could point them out and how to correct them. :)

Videos:

Face on (I apologize apparently I trimmed off the last half second or so of this video, but hopefully it's enough to work with):

Down the line:

Think you guys can fix me?? These two drives were the only ones I hit straight all day, haha ... figures. Still seems like there's some very apparent, horrendous problems, though!

A few things, it looks like you open the face way up on the backswing. I see some major issues with your follow through also. It seems very flat? Also neither arm is straight in your follow through, not sure I've ever seen that before. Also it looks like you are hitting down on the ball with your driver quite a bit. Hopefully @iacas , @mvmac , or someone else with a lot more knowledge than me can come give more constructive information and advice.

You are very correct on the follow through. No matter how hard I try I'm having to try and save the shot with my hands and arms. When I try and have more passive arms it seems to result in a massive slice most likely due to the open club face. I think my backswing is a huge part of this problem?

It's very possible because being out of position at the top of the backswing causes a lot of manipulation on the downswing. I really hesitate to give advice though, because I'm nowhere near a good player right now.

Your best bet in the meantime is using this link:

Need more "Rickie Fowler" on the takeaway. Hands move out and away from you, causing the forearms and the club rotate too much getting the shaft very shallow and causing you to steepen it coming down. Club head is outside the hands in the right pic

So do some mirror work making it look more like this, shaft pointing just inside the ball a few inches.

And watch this for more feels
