My Swing (Matt66)

Thought I would add an update after being a little dormant! Been practicing and playing all through the end of spring and now into the season especially at Easter I played some of the best golf I've ever played (hit a 92 & 94) over that weekend, however it wouldn't be golf if something new didn't creep in! I have found myself coming from the inside better producing initially a nice draw flight but this has become a pull hook/ hook with almost all clubs but wedges. I think I'm the over end of extreme and find myself so far from the inside a couple of times I've completely missed the ball, it's gotten in my head and my scores have been affected by I in the last few weeks where I find myself again the wrong side of 100! These are some videos of me in the range last week consciously working on a fade shape or at least not coming too much on the inside ( sticks are down to give me a visual aid). [video]http://youtu.be/loKnGoKZ7zs[/video] [video]http://youtu.be/xaIsoy7icK8[/video] I wondered if anyone could notice from the swing points that may be the reason for my new found hooks and pulls, consequently I was hitting it amazing on this night in the range, so I'd be happy to hear some positive feedback as I thought I was nailing it! Apologies for just the DTL view and the light it was sunny for once here in Blighty! Cheers guys, Matt

Hi all, it’s been years since I last posted but always keep a watchful eye on the forum. 

As my description suggests I really am struggling with the shanks at the minute to the point where I cannot find the centre of the face and quite simply I cannot attempt to play golf. 

My swing and game has come on leaps and bounds in the last year and my current HC is 15 but I have been shooting single figures over par. The shanks has crept in my game for about a hear now but it is getting progressively worse to the point where we are now.  

I’ve had lessons to rectify before but the pro in my area has let me down recently and not gotten back to me so I’ve been left to myself and recording swings to try and work it for myself. I’ve used foot spray, alignment sticks, golf ball outside the one I’m hitting I’m bereft of ideas!

I thought I had cracked it a week ago but went to the range tonight in prep  for an Easter weekend of golf and it’s just as bad if not worse then before. 

I’ve attached a video of 2 swings, one a week ago that I think looks pretty solid and also felt great and then tonight’s, any feeedback or thoughts would be of great help. 

Applgise of this should be posted elsewhere, I’m a man in desperate help!

@iacas shared this with me a few years go when I was having trouble with balance and shanks. With your hands crowded into your body it could get very tough to return your club to the ball.

Thankyou both for posting, that image was eye opening as I didn’t realise how close my hands were to my body, and the drills in the golftec link were really helpful. For the time being hopefully I’ve found a way around it!
