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 know her! Her name is Karen. 😄
    • I heard somewhere a long time ago that good players always put their putter and driver together.  Well, doing that didn’t make me a better golfer but now I’m self conscious about that.
    • Hi Cammy - I’m not an instructor, but just noticed a couple things. At the top, it looks like you may be pulling down a bit with the hands without the body weight shifting forward. And also standing up a bit just before impact with the ball. Just a thought. Others may have better advice than me. I’m learning too. Great job though, considering how long you have been playing. Keep it up! 
    • The main issue with golf is time.  When my job and other responsibilities allowed me to play at least once per week and practice in between, I could play consistently in the high 80s.  But as a weekend golfer it’s tough to maintain enough consistency to stay in the low 90s.  Adding age to the equation makes maintaining consistency even more difficult.  It’s still a fun game if you manage your expectations realistically.
    • I have to use single vision lenses only for golf. However, my distance vision lenses do not leave the ball blurry at address.  If your distance vision prescription leaves the ball blurry at address, you might need progressives or bifocals specifically for golf.  I can’t imagine that your reading prescription would leave you with a clear view at 6 feet.  But I’m no optometrist.
