My Swing (Golfclubmogul)

7 posts in this topic

I've been Playing Golf for: 7 months

My current handicap index or average score is: 94

My typical ball flight is: High Fade

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I thin and top the ball a lot.


Videos: My second swing made better contact.

I am trying to get a better lag position. As you can tell I release very early.
Also I am 15 years old.

Id start by adding a little knee flex you legs look very straight and Im guessing its restricting you hip turn and shoulder turn. Look at Rory here.

Also read through this thread theres a ton of good info in it. http://thesandtrap.com/t/55426/introducing-five-simple-keys

Keep working you get there

Welcome to the forum!!!

Classic "Reverse" weight shift there.

Need to loose flex in that right leg, and gain flex in the front leg.

Try this drill out. I really like this one. It kinda is a multi-tasker. It will get you feeling what the top of the backswing feels like, and a proper centered pivot. Notice in the video how his right leg looses flex (don't totally straighten it, let it loose flex), and how his left knee gains flex.

I would hammer this drill A LOT!!

Here is another drill that will help you get the impact position better as well. First I would work on getting that backswing fixed there, and learn to get a more centered pivot.

I worked on the knee flex a bit, so I look a bit more centered. Not yet worked on my impact, but what is your thoughts about my knees?

It is fine to practice inside your house with video to see if you are in the correct positions (or you can use a mirror) but for feedback on your swing you should always take video with a ball. Also it would be helpful to have a down the line view to provide some more feedback.

I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year

My current handicap index or average score is: 86

My typical ball flight is: straight or slight draw

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


Videos: I am obviously releasing early. I have been trying to not think about hitting and just turn, but I am still not able to get a better angle. I know that I don't want to forcefully hold a lag angle and it should be natural. Any comments would be much appreciated!

@golfclubmogul please use your existing (this) swing thread when posting new videos instead of starting a new one, thanks :-)

Swing change looks good, I see you put in work to clean up that pivot. I'd recommend flaring your feet.

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
