My Swing (bshalcomb)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 6 years, just came back from a 2 year hiatus

My current handicap index or average score is: ~13

My typical ball flight is: Low with a slight fade

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Toe hits


I generally hit the ball relatively low with a good amount of spin.  I generally hit just a little bit of a fade, but sometimes I strike it well with a slight to moderate draw when I don't mean to.  A couple things I've worked on/fixed since this video was taken are keeping my head from coming down towards the ball, staying a little more back on my feet during my downswing, and the BIG ONE: not coming too far inside on the backswing.  My measurements are 2* upright and 1/4 inch long.  My 6 iron swing speed is 84 on a good, smooth, stock shot.  My misses are off of the toe, in which the ball has more or less the shape I wanted, but I lose ~15 yards and have no spin.  Not coming too far inside has seriously mitigated this issue and my toe hits only come on really wild swings now.  I'm a self-taught golfer with input on my swing from a few different people. This shot was hit with a Callaway X-Forged 6-iron standard length and lie, Project X 6.0 shaft, while I was on a break at work.  I currently play Toski T-54 musclebacks, Dynamic Gold S300 shafts (super forgiving for muscleback irons). If I remember correctly,  this shot had a 185 carry with about 2 yards of draw.
