My Swing (efdeel74)


Recommended Posts

 

I've been Playing Golf for: first swing : 9 years ago (not continously). Playing in golf course for 1 year and 4 months.

My current handicap index or average score is: 99
My typical ball flight is: straight
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: scoring game : (1) chipping n pitching distance. (2) putting


Slow motion Videos:

I'll put another video later.

If able, I'll put my chipping, pitching n putting videos too.

I have a dream some day I can train "street children" to play golf for free.

Looking at this as a "second pair of eyes" sort of thing i think what a lot of the guys, especially the low handicap players would agree with is that you look very flat footed on the trail side. Try to get the weight forward during the swing so you end up with most on the front fot and the trail foot on its toes.

As a guy with bad knees seeing someone hit hard while not letting the trail foot move makes my knees hurt :-D.

Also not a lot of wrist hinge. check out the video below. Its graves golf but shows Moe swinging with good views of his wrist action and footwork (2.07 in)

 

Also if you're dead set on Single Axis/Moe Norman then Kirk Junge does his own version.

Doesn't matter how you swing as long as it helps you enjoy the game.

I'm not qualified to comment on your swing, but I'd suggest you get new video from better camera positions.  Check here:

to understand the camera position that gives the experts the information they need to get you the best possible advice.

Thanks RussUK for the input,

yes, I aware of that I lack of weight forward when swinging........this is my FIRST home work. (this on is a MUST).

Wrist hinge, or lag......will be my next home work. (It could be optional, but lag are good for distance).

I’m no expert, first glance looks like your rotation is minimal both on your back swing and your follow through, look pretty stiff.

We’re all a work in progress that’s why we’re on this dang site.

I think providing your clubs fit you ok you should be ok without having to go full Moe club spec. Check Kirk Junge, he swings in a similar way and says you dont need to change your clubs.

All good swings share the same things in common regardless of whether its a single axis or 2 plane swing. Check out the 5 simple keys thread as this should help you.

Sorry the video is only ball flight not my swing, since it was my first day with the "right" Moe Norman's swing...so I just want to enjoy the eureka moment first (not thinking about video shot angle etc.), and I think the best part of Moe Norman's swing is the ball flight.

I will update my swing in the next video.

I hope I can break 90 with this swing in my next game.

My biggest hazard in golf is not sand, not water but.....cash 😄

I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years (on and off)
My current handicap index or average score is: 100
My typical ball flight is: straight
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: topping

Thank you RussUK, I have watched Kirk Junge and Graves videos, and last week just found eureka moment with it (video in upper post).

Updated, why always have somethings to be fixed...

1. I shouldn't lift my (left) feet at impact.

2. Keep my balance.

3. No chicken wing (thanks to Backyard Golfer) I think I can fix that all three with one stone: create some lag in my back swing.

Finally, I think I've got my final swing, yes it inspired by Moe Norman swing.

More consistant and more accurate ball flight.

Will update the full swing video at next range session, meanwhile watch this pitching indoor video:

Pitch shot shot practice at my back yard against concrete wall:

 

I could hurt my self this time....but the positive thing is: I could hit thousand balls a day like Moe...if I have time.

    • This is a tough one, just because its so hard to predict what is going to happen 20 years from now. First, its great to see everyone understanding here that purse size is based on sponsorship revenue.  Purses won't be equal until sponsors are able to raise the same amount of revenue for an LPGA event as a PGA event.  And it's not debatable.  "Doing the same job" is not an argument here as many of you have already stated in a clear and respectful manner. I did vote for in 20 years.  But its just a maybe in 20 years.  It depends on what happens between now and then.  If a truly transcendent talent and marketing goldmine comes along on the women's tour, that would be a great start.  And if there is further collaboration between the PGA tour and LPGA tour like joint events to create more exposure to the LPGA athletes for the golf viewing population, I could see a reasonable path to get close in 20 years.  That's not a prediction, just a scenario I could see happen.   I agree with this to an extent, but just to play devil's advocate... men's college athletics (basketball and football) is a clearly inferior game to the professional versions, but yet, at the highest levels of NCAA competition, the revenues rival the professional sports.  The NCAA is able to create a compelling product despite much less talented players.  Now the leap to apply this to the LPGA is the tricky part.  I don't have those answers.  But it is possible to create a compelling, yet competitively inferior game.   I do not believe this is as easy a solution as just getting more women to watch golf, and therefore the LPGA viewership will rival the PGA.  Women are valuable consumers, you are correct.  But everyone is trying to market them.  If more women watch golf, the PGA is going to do what they can to have them watch the men's game too.  Yes, naturally, if more women watch golf, a higher percentage of them might be naturally drawn to the women's game, but a lot of them will watch the men's game too.  The solution isn't the demographics of the viewers.  Its making the LPGA product as compelling as possible.
    • And, you'll still need the stand up on its own S7K putter that will allow you to walk away and line up your putt from the next fairway...
    • I am lazy; let the other player drive.
    • Phil Mickelson denies helping gambler Billy Walters get commuted sentence from Donald Trump Donald Trump's White House said that Phil Mickelson was one of several who sponsored the move to commute Billy Walters' sentence. Maybe coming back to bite at him a little. He was named, along with Harmon, Feherty, and peter jacobsen as those who vouched for Walters for his release on the former president’s last day. His lawyer denied everything. 
    • I'm not sure you picked up on the sarcasm in my post? Sorry about that. Maybe I should have made it more clear that my post was in jest.
