My Swing (Hulk)

2 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 2 months

My current handicap index or average score is: 105

My typical ball flight is: sporadic

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: typical shots (working on consistency)

I apologize for the poor lighting in the video. This is a slow motion video of my typical swing. I am BRAND new to golf and just want to work on fundamentals. What are some things that I could work on to improve my swing? Thanks so much for any and all input!

Not a bad start in my opinion... You have also come to the right place if you want to improve as well!

To start I would suggest reading and applying what is in this thread below.. Obviously the grip is your only contact with the club, so having the correct structure in your grip will really go along way.. If you have any questions about the grip you can ask in the thread below!

Then I would move on to the correct posture.. There is much misinformation on what the correct golf posture is out there, so the thread below will clear everything up, and this will really facilitate all the other movements going forward!

Next you should focus on a centered pivot and this will help you with keeping a steady head (which you do a pretty good job of by the way) and really put you in a good position at the top of the backswing.

I don't want to give you any more threads on specifics since this is a lot of stuff to digest.. However, I would also really suggest looking into the 5 simple keys learning system.. this will really prioritize for you what you should be working on, and give you a path for improvement.. This way you won't be bouncing around like I did a couple years ago without any improvement.

Good Luck and let me know if I can help at all.

    • 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.
    • According to equipment reviews, the Mojo is a distance ball with fairly good stopping power. For the D2 family, the newer D2+ Feel is supposed to deliver distance and greenside control. Being that you have a beginner's HDCP, I would suggest you get a short-game lesson. I get a short-game checkover every few years, and I always learn something new. A skilled instructor can take you further toward short-game control in an hour than you can take yourself with a whole season of hit and miss. Also, good contact on partial wedges and chip-and-run can build a foundation for a solid full swing.
