My Swing (Golfclubmogul)

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
