My Swing (Sixwings86)

4 posts / 655 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: A couple of months
My current handicap index or average score is: 100+ Haven't played enough to establish yet. 
My typical ball flight is: straight fade. 
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice and thin


Videos: 

 

 

 

These definitely aren't my 'best' swings, but I'm pretty inconsistent at this point, so they are pretty representative. I've been working with a pro on stopping my sway and getting proper weight transfer and hip turn. 

I've bought LSW, and I know that my head moves too much, but it does move less than it did. 

I'm also pretty sure my swing plane is all jacked up, I'm planning on moving to that topic with my Pro over our next few lessons.

Thanks for posting. I don't think your swing is too far off. You may be casting a bit, but the plane isn't that bad and neither is the sway or head movement.

I was casting a bit last year and what my instructor had me work on was starting with chips with 7 iron, driver, PW etc. Start with short swings and focus on Key 2 and 3, Weight forward at Impact and Flat left wrist or In-Line Impact where your hands are in front of the club head at impact. Make sure you start slow, then bring the speed up and the length of the backswing up. Contact will feel better.

I do this drill as I warm up before practicing. I use the feel of my right elbow staying out and forward of my right hip (this is sometimes referred to as 'pitch elbow') as my hip rotates. But you may have a different feel.

I think you're back on your heels at setup. Then you're failing to use your lower body during the backswing (which is why your arms and wrists have to do so much), and then again not on the downswing.

Yeah. The casting/chicken wing is actually a newer development. I’ll give the drill a try- it sounds straight forward enough. Thanks for the thoughts.

I am probably back too much. It’s probably an over correction. Before my first lesson with my new guy, I was so far away from the ball that I couldn’t reach to take a divot and was losing balance in my follow through. Do you think I need to move further from the ball, or should I just focus on loving the weight a little more balanced or more on the balls of my feet? 

Still working in the lower body stuff. Weight shift is a problem. I was getting a lot of rotation, but I was hanging back really bad. I guess I’m still working on getting those feels ironed out. 

Thanks for taking a look.
