So right hand needs to rotate slightly to the right?

Not necessarily. My instructor has me with it close to what you have. You can rotate it so the V is pointing between the ear and shoulder to make it a bit stronger

Heya fellas, sorry i disappeared for a bit but i havent got to play much and am frustrated with all the changes lol. Im back to hitting around 120 instead of 105ish.....mostly due to fat irons, bad pitches and bad driving. I did finally get rid of my nasty hook with driver. But now im back to great contact and a 50 yard slice. Here is a quick video....i know i prolly need to lower and make backswing a little shorter......am i still coming across the ball too much?

Can you give us a face on view? It's tough to tell, but you may have some improvement with a shorter backswing.

Ill try to get one next time im out....i did down line that time cuz ive never checked my target line and i thought that was gonna b my issue.....to me it looks like im pretty close to on line all the way down.......i really thought i was coming across the ball too much and causing the fade there

That backswing is ridiculously long. cut it in half and hit a bucket like that swinging easy. 

Also with the grip posts, it looks like you're squeezing the isht out of those clubs. Take it easy. I could be wrong, you may have the perfect grip strength, but squeezing the club is only wasting energy, and tensing up muscles you need to keep loose in order to turn.

@Joeyvee it definitely is too long and im working on shortening it for all clubs, not just the driver. and yes i probably do squeeze the club too tight....and probably too tense. im not good at this game and i let my brain get to me and think about stuff too much lol. i did also throw my club one day but that was when i had the palmy grip and dont think i was wearing a glove :whistle:

so im kinda scared now of that happening again! but i will try to relax a little....i know i need to

Post #62   Posted (edited)

so after all these changes i lost about 20 strokes and got pretty down.....then let my friends talk me into "not turning so much" and "dont let ur left knee bend like that." that obviously didnt do me any good.....but im back now and committing to S&T. i know alot of my previous posts were relating to the driver but im not even worried about it anymore. i just want to get some fundamentals down with irons and method....hopefully the driver will mostly fall into place after that long road lol.

so ive done lots of wall drills and got my center turn back to where it should be (most of the time). im not sure what should be priority out of the following ideas (if not something else) but these are what im working on. i obviously still have a ton of baseball in me and/or i just can figure out: weight forward and shaft lean (instead of massive casting!). as of last week i started to focus on either 1 of 2 ideas that seem to help alot with both.....however im not sure if it is a good or bad habit. 

a) not hitting the ball until my trail hip passes it (this forces me to have more hip action, more forward weight at impact, and at least have my hands slightly ahead of club head)

b) keeping my trail hip and elbow "connected" all the way until impact

ive only been doing this for a few days and i got about 12 strokes back from my previous 6-7 games.....with not nearly as many fat shots. they are still there but i think they are mostly when i swing without focusing on the above and basically use my normal turning on top of the ball and casting swing.

any thoughts? and as always, thanks for any help

    • With all the balls we saw go into the rough this week and get good lies, imagine if the rough was high like it was 2008 when every missed fairway was basically a layup? No one would have finished under par this week. Spieth definitely benefited from the thinner rough because he missed a lot of fairways today.
    • What an absolutely crazy final round! If a golf movie were made with that many plot twists, it would go down in flames, After Spieth hit it off the world right on 12 I thought he was done for! To escape with a one putt bogey was huge. Then, when he was getting ready to hit his tee shot on the Par 3, 13th a crazy thought went through my mind. "Watch this guy knock it in the hole and send this place stark raving mad!"  Damned if he didn't almost do it. After that shot, and birdie, he had "the look" back. All the stuff that happened before was gone. A great example of letting the bad stuff go! I will say this, Spieth needs to find a Driver he can trust! Or maybe a Driver swing he can trust. Especially when the wind is hitting him in the back. Yeah, I know! He just won the Open Championship, but he seems to have a problem with that. And I felt sorry for Kuch. He played some damn good golf this week, but just came up a hair short. After they finished on 18 and were shaking hands, you could see in his eyes just how much this hurt!  
    • In my experience; it is the golfer, not the clubs, that are the "most forgiving" at the start of a relationship.  We all want to be proved correct in our decision to bag a new club or clubs.  To that end; we are willing to give the new club(s) a bit more leeway than we grant the old.  I'm guessing that you and your new clubs will get along fine...once you get to know one another.
    • I went out today and worked on some stuff.  Slow mo.  Partial speed and up to maybe 3/4.  It brought the same feeling as this era of my swing.  I could tag it pretty good doing this but the club felt upside down.  Couldn't ever get over that.  Hit a couple today that came off nice with what I worked on.  When you capture the feel of this it seems like the ball is trapped into submission and can't go far off line. This old one was when I was working on the same stuff for a while.  Heads nice width is good face shut.  Good pop on irons with this...
    • If you're looking at the Golf Digest 2016 Hot List categories, the XR irons rank as GI, along with this year's XR Steelhead and Apex CF.16;  the Calla SGI was the XR-OS and this year's Big Bertha OS. Another potential problem with SGI irons: too high launch a shaft. Circa 2009, I was looking to replace my  iron set of 14 years. The Callaway original Big Bertha and the Ping G10 both launched too high with their stock R-flex shafts. The Callaway X20s (played for two seasons), however, had a more moderate launch with the heavier Uniflex shaft. So, don't forget shafts when you're considering SGI, or any other class, of irons.
