Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 18 months
My current handicap index or average score is: 12.7
My typical ball flight is: Straight/ draw
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Chunks


Videos: 

This is the only video I have, a buddy sneakily took it yesterday. When asked about the miss I hate I said Chunk, however that is not an issue with this club. This shot coincidentally was the only shot that went to the right all day. I've added (what I feel is) torso rotation this winter and have experienced significant gains in distance. My average drive is up 35 yards to 260 from 225 through 7 rounds in the last couple weeks. I know the swing is riddled with flaws and am eager to get it worked into something strong. Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your time.

Looks like a classic reverse pivot to me. Your left shoulder needs to move down and around your core, your shoulder moves laterally. @mvmac describes how to swing around a centered pivot in this video.

This drill will help get that weight forward on the downswing.

Roger that. I watched the videos then watched my swing a few times and there is a huge and obvious difference. I will definitely work on that ASAP. Thank you for the feedback.

    • I believe this still has a nonzero probability:  
    • Day 48.  Ruler and floor putting again.  As with last time, this was because it's what I can do in my circumstance, not because it's what's best for my game.  But I have seen my efforts at following through my putting stroke paying off with straight putt after straight putt (also evidence towards my hypothesis that my fault in putting is read and speed, not bead)
    • I don't have a rule book but I asked the tournament director and he could only talk about the rule to do with the ball moving at address. It's no longer a penalty if you are not deemed to have caused the ball to move. He talked about if the ball moved that you have to replace the ball but he could not give me a definitive ruling. He asked me if I hit the ball while it was moving and I said I wasn't sure, I just saw it move so it was close. Do you know the ruling?
    • He needs to play the first nine better... stop making 6s and 7s...
