My Swing (Bobby2Swings)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: A few months
My current handicap index or average score is: 95-105
My typical ball flight is: Fade
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: With irons I want to be able to make solid contact leaving a divot after the ball... consistently.


Videos:

On your DTL iron shot you can see you’re bending down too much. Your downswing is over the top. Stand a bit more upright and raise your handle. You should have the handle pretty much running through a belt buckle area.

Thanks for calling that out. Some of that may be due to my clubs being too short. Im going to lengthen them this weekend. That being said, Ill try focusing on good posture more.

After reviewing the videos myself a second time a few things stand out to me in the face on iron perspective.

1. Instead of a hip slide, I have a whole upper body slide. My head actually stays fairly static in the early part of the swing but shifts forward passed to ball when I shift weight to my front foot. I've read that you need to stay behind the ball. Is the "steady head" key something that is supposed to be maintained throughout the whole swing? How does that work in conjunction with the weight shift and hip slide?

2. At address the ball is a little behind center. It FELT like it was an inch ahead of center or perhaps I lost track of it. I'll have to keep an eye on this...
