My Swing (todd1902)

I've been Playing Golf for: 2 years 
My current handicap index is: 22
My typical ball flight is: straight ball flight, if I’m hitting well can be right to left 
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: try to reduce the heel shot and the shanks! I also get the occasional thin or fat shot. All of these can kill my round off before I’ve even really got started. 

I would also like to eliminate jumping up at impact.

 

Also to note: in the past 6 months I have come back from a broken wrist in which I have some limitations regarding wrist hinging.

As suspected there's no real lower body help. Your backswing doesn't see much lower body turn, and your weight stays almost static on the downswing.

I'd look at making a better backswing pivot, but then quickly work on Key #2 stuff: getting your weight/pressure forward on the downswing.

So are saying that I should be putting more hip rotation in?

For starters, I would.

But I'd quickly move on to the Key #2 stuff for the downswing.

Any good drills or feels for this?

i feel like when I want to shift forward normally I end up dragging 6 inches of turf before the ball.

We have a bunch on the site, yeah. Have a look around.

I've managed to work on these steps as you said but i still find myself struggle with a very horrific shank.

I'm forever trying to get my balance correct? I'm not entirely sure where my weight should be on address,takeaway and impact?

It's been a week, man.

This stuff takes time.

Post video of you doing the practice, and let people see how you're doing it. Right now you should be working on letting your lower body help you make a backswing with more turn in it.

That's all.

Looking for some advice on how to clear my hips.

I feel like on my downswing I get my weight onto my left hand side but clear my hips or stop them from thrusting towards the golf ball.

Any tips, drills or swing thoughts would be appreciated.

It still looks like you haven't rotated the lower body enough on the backswing. From DTL, it's hard to say for certain but it also looks like you are not getting nearly enough weight left by impact.  You look like you're almost falling backwards after swinging.  Try the Gary Player walk through or hit with feet close together to feel hip turn and finishing left.

Cheers I'll give this a go and see how it works out!

Been awhile since my last post but here is my current swing.

 

I feel as if im still struggling with my issue of clearing the hips. I cannot seem to get into my head any methods of over coming this.
I also feel in the video my backswing looks a bit short but when im actually carrying this out it feels like thats my limit of movement.

 

any thoughts?

    • I’ll go on the range and try that! Thanks for the feedback, I’ll post one more video when I do and see if anything improved
    • This is interesting. I don't have an LM of any sort, but is this open source for LM to sim? The website is incredibly vague, and though I use Discord quite often, I don't join random servers. On your clickthrough it mentions multiple LMs, but I don't see any kind of list on their site. Would this work with a Mevo? Would it work with a swing caddie? How many courses are there? More importantly, it sounds like you are already using it. How do you like it? *Edit Joined the Disc, and didn't find any more information on what LMs are supported. Looks like someone is making some decent side gig money on it, but I'm not really sure what the draw is. I thought this was going to be a SIM for LMs, but it looks like a league for people that already have LMs/SIMs. Maybe you can elaborate on the draw?
    • Hello everyone I used to be active here until my place was burglarized in Dallas TX and my entire golf gear, among other things, was stolen. Following the burglary and the pandemic I lost my motivation to play golf. Last week I moved to Vegas, and today my wonderful wife ordered a new set for my upcoming birthday. It is an all Taylormade M2 set which was on discount at Dick's; my goal is to play with that product price range until I score in the 80s again. I will only buy better clubs after I consistently hit below 80, if necessary. I am now looking for good golf courses in the Summerlin area and hope to join a community where I can find likeminded folks to play with regularly. My flexible job enables me to play in the afternoons during the week and all day on weekends. Vegas has transformed a lot. The Raiders built a stadium here, residential areas have grown and lots of master planned communities were built. Nice to be back on TST, it is the best golf community on the web! Nave
    • I have just as much fun playing by the rules, as not. Hell, probably more...
    • Nice!  Olinger can get around the table!
