My Swing (todd1902)

Recommended Posts

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.

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?

    • A couple death shots from today's round. First one was death of my driver (shaft). The shaft snapped on a routine swing about an inch above the ferrule. Wasn't a chunk, or contact off the heel/hosel area, no idea what happened. Impact felt weird, and then the driver head was hanging a bit funny, and was still partially connected, but the shaft was clearly toast. Contacted Cobra customer service, and hopefully I can get a new shaft sorted out under warranty since the club is only ~6 months old. Second one was on #17. I hit my approach shot to the green which missed about a yard right, kicked right off a slope, and landed right behind an old stump with tall grass growing all around it. If it lands 2 feet right or left, it's a pretty easy pitch onto the green Perspective on the photo isn't great, but to go at the hole the ball would basically need to pop straight up, and the stump is obstructing any type of follow through. The only chance I had was to stub a wedge into the ground behind the ball and try to pop it up over the stump. Didn't work and the ball ricocheted back about 3-4 yards, where I put the next one on the green, and 2 putted for 6.
    • Hmm.. yeah. Well let's see what we get. 
    • Day 323 Played 18 today. Started off hitting the ball really well, and felt like I was going to have a solid day of ballstriking. Then the shaft of my driver snapped on the third hole on a routine shot, and I mentally checked out after that. At least I got a lot of good practice hitting 3W today.
    • Get’n those bad ones out early - it’s all about peaking at the right time 
    • As a 53 year former resident of Ohio and a graduate of THE Ohio State University, I would like to play next year if your rules allow.
