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?

    • Honestly, I am not worried about it.  I am not scarred of COVID.  I respect everyone's opinion. I work in hospitals from the smallest to the largest one's in the country.  I deal with infectious control to EVS.  From NYC to California during this pandemic.  I know how they feel about it from an internal point of view.   I was more concerned about my safety when I crossed the border in the 1990's to work in Tijuana then going into any hospital in this country today.  I have and still go into the most dangerous parts of any city in this country and have done so since the 1990's as well as foreign countries.  Nothing catches your attention faster then staring at an M60 Machine Gun pointed directly at the van you are in. COVID is a virus, it does not scare me.  I understand other people's fear of it and respect that.  There are a lot more deadly situations I can come into contact with that a mask and washing my hands frequently will not help. You seam to be a really nice guy.  Hopefully when this calms down and it will we can meet and play golf together.  I would really enjoy that.
    • This shaft seems pretty nice.  I took a flyer on it and got the SF505 (I swing 100-105MPH).  It came in last night and I took it to the range this morning.  I saw on a couple sites people mentioning there was a learning curve and it was true.  I tried using my same swing I put on my Hzrdus green and the ball just took off to the right.   10-20 swings later I was able to figure it out and was amazed at the results.  I realized I needed to just swing smoother and slower and it worked perfectly.  Feels so weird swinging this slow and the ball going farther.  I was on the range so no comparison other that was was visible to the naked eye.  The ball had so much more pop and was flying maybe 10 yards farther.  The consistency was the craziest part as they were ropes directly where I aimed.  Taking it on the course tomorrow so curious to see how accurate on the course it is as well as if I'm hitting from new areas because of the added length.
    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
    • I don't buy that there's only a 0.0001% risk.  Where did that number come from?  I leave my home a lot... groceries, outdoor cocktails (downwind and 10 feet from friends), golf course every day, walks, bicycle rides, a take out burrito today from Casa que Pasa and for gas.  All calculated risks.  It's sort of fun to know... that the next time you reach for the gas pump handle you'll think of good ol' DMM.
