My Swing (andrewshawl)

Recommended Posts

I've been Playing Golf for: 5 years
My current handicap index or average score is: ??
My typical ball flight is: Medium trajectory and very light draw.
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I used to play as a kid (9,14) i was a decent golfer then. I got bored easily but i could hit the ball pretty well. From 14 to 30(My current age) i played 1 round  of golf until the other day a friend that is learning to play invited my to play with him. I felt that i hit the ball pretty well and scored an 81. I was pretty happy about it and i have been driving to the driving range everyday since then. Today my friend took some videos of my golf swing and as i am trying to get back into the game it would be nice if some more experienced golfers could tell me there honest opinion on the things they think i should do to improve my golf swing.

Not a single comment, Did i do something wrong ?.

No you didn't do anything wrong, but this is directly from the rules of the "Member Swings" section:

"As a general note, people are more willing to give advice and help to people they know, so please, try to participate in other sections of the site. Get to know people and let them get to know you a little bit. You'll get more feedback and advice in your "My Swing" thread and make some online buddies in the process."

And you didn't really answer the question of what your miss is or what shot you are trying to eliminate. When you played that round and have been hitting at the driving range, what do your mishits look like? Are they over draws/hooks? Do you occasionally hit it too fat, too thin? etc.

I would try filming again with the correct angles with a full swing. Make sure you align along the toe line for the Down the Line view and waist high. For the face, have it aiming waist high at the center of your stance.

Are you sure you haven’t played in 15 years?

I wish my swing looked that good after taking a decade off.

Looks on-plane to me. I’m not good enough to give advice to you...and I don’t suck

Thank you very much. When i was a child i used to live just yards away from the golf club and i played all day(did terrible in school). Life changed and i became a mathematician and right now work as a teacher in university. and it became very costly to play golf regularly. I will try to play at least once a month because i really like the game but for the time being i bought a golf net and rmotion golf simulator to practice my swing. This are some videos i took today and i was hitting the ball pretty well.

What app are you using? I would check your calibration.

Your numbers are very, very high for a 6-iron. The average PGA swing speed for a 6-iron is 92MPH. It's 113MPH for a driver. Also, your sidespin numbers seem suspicious.

I am using the Rmotion app . I am sure it is not perfect but here in Mexico City i used to hit my 6 iron 200 yards so its not that far at least in distance. How do i calibrate it ?

Thank a lot mate 🙂

At sea level i usually played the 6 iron at 190 yards

Not sure how you calibrate. Not questioning the distance, just the swing speed. At that speed, you'd be swinging a driver as fast/faster than anyone on the PGA tour.

I also don't believe the swing speed , the strange thing is that I think the simulator most be using the swing speed to calculate the distance and i find the distances to be correct or a little bit short.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
