Hi all. Been noticing that my hands get away from my body quite at bit at impact vs. at adress. Also don't seem to get in a good position at the top. In the video you'll notice I'm working to eliminate early extension by keeping my butt back. 

 

Thanks!

 

I've been Playing Golf for: 17 years 
My current handicap index or average score is: avg is 90
My typical ball flight is: left or right
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: fat or thin shots 


Videos:

Hi @billchao

I did embed the videos. I pasted the link from YouTube as described. They are not working?

Thanks

They are now that I fixed it. Maybe you forgot to remove the formatting when you copied the URL.

Happy to help, and welcome to TST!

You have a pretty good backswing, but you transition steep and then you throw everything out and end up shallowing late and swinging too far right.

Here's a good thread I think might help: 

As well as another that shows you're not alone:

It looks to me like your head is a couple of inches further behind the ball (to your right) at impact than it is at address when viewed face on which won't be helping with thin/fat shots.

Check out this thread about a centred pivot, this will help keep you centred over the ball, which I believe should help eliminate those misses.

I had never heard about a centered pivot. I'd been trying to get my weight back and it does look like my head/weight doesn't fully come back to the starting point at adress. 

I guess it's one more thing on top of the steep downswing, bringing the club too much inside on the backswing and early extension that I have to adress.

I forget sometimes why I even play this game! 🙂

I wouldn't worry about your head movement. It's still relatively steady and certainly not your biggest priority. Your pivot is fairly centered already.

That steep transition and then hard shallowing is going to affect the bottom of your arc, depending on the varying rates of one part vs another from swing to swing. That will cause fat and thin misses.

    • 2021 Golf Goal - Golf With John  Break 90 consistently. I should hit 89 or better 7 out of 10 rounds. I know I can hit 90's because I've tried better ball (2 balls), and I was able to only hit 4 over in 9 holes.  Better course management. Thinking before my shots. Make good contact Practice range. I've gone out almost every weekday morning in Oct, putting 30 minutes and range a hour. Chipping and putting practice. Trying to get make my body to automatically do what I've learned in my lessons.  New shot shapes (how to hit a fade, draw, low, high). I realized I have no idea how to hits these. If it happens on the course, it's accidental as my only goal was to hit it straight. Play Club tournaments I've played 1 this year and it was a great time. Got to putt every hole!  Oct 2021 goal is to hit 80 from white tees Once i'm comfortable breaking into single digits, I'll move to the back tees. I was able to hit 87 1 time this past year and it was an amazing feeling. Ingrain in my brain, there are bad shots and it sucks but it's okay. We'll get through it.
    • Obviously you/we can't submit those/these rounds for HCP purposes, but when playing with buddies who use golf as an excuse to get together and drink, we allow: the customary Breakfast Ball if first drive is out of play rolling the ball in the fairway (if they're in the fairway, they deserve a good lie) Leaf rule (free drop) if all parties agree the ball was assumed to be in the fairway or just off & most assuredly not out of bounds or a bad enough shot that would've have resulted it being lost in the summer or other times when ground is clear
    • Depending on the OEM, different brands will have either matching lengths in steel and graphite or go with the 1/2 over with graphite. However when they match them for length, the SW is usually 3 or 4 points lighter with graphite. SW can be tricky because it's not just the head weight, it's the relation of the head to the shaft and grip while also factoring in the shaft length and balance point. This means that for every 1/2 change in length, you get a 3 SWP change (longer=heavier). Also for every 9 grams of shaft weight change, you get 1 SWP change (heavier=heavier). Since the average stock graphite shaft is around 30g lighter than the matching steel, 1/2 longer shafts balance things out at least on a swing weight scale.
    • My friend’s dad and step mom are covid deniers, and started to develop some symptoms a couple weeks ago. The step mom is having a tough time going through chemo so one of their daughters is having to take care of them. The daughter then started to get sick, got tested, and got a positive result for coronavirus.   Needless to say my friend is really pissed off. They had canceled thanksgiving over whether covid was real and election results. The dad and step mom still refuse to believe they have something other than a cold and won’t go get tested. I couldn’t imagine being my friend in this situation. 
    • Here are couple things I do with my group of friends when we go out to play. I'd love to hear yours as well! 1 Mulligan (drive) per front and back (although as we got better, we stopped "using" mulligans unless it's completely out of play. If it's in the fairway, you can move it to give yourself a better lie (lay?). *Don't be a donkey and push it forward.  If it's in the rough. No relief If there's rocks, you move it to the closest none rocky area. Whether it's bunker/rough/fairways. We're not pro's and we don't want to mess our clubs up.  If it goes into some weird bush type or under tree branches that makes it a pro level difficulty. Gentleman's agreement to give each other those 😛  What are your unofficial rules that you play with?
