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.

    • He got that advice already. We can also have a discussion about practice swings. Let’s be careful about volunteering others to give free advice, too. 🙂
    • So many variables. 90%? No. I carry 4 wedges for a reason.. Different lofts, different bounces. All capable of being hit full bore ( Which I seldom do with the 60) every other one better at thick or thin lies. All working best for me being laid somewhat open, using the bounce + and being a bit aggressive. Yet today I went to an 8 iron off my back toe to run a ball 25 yards up to a small shelf the pin was on, perched between the hill and a sharp drop off to a bunker. It wasn't even a fair pin placement, much less design. The designer should be doing courses where the clowns nose lights up when you get close. The jackknob who put the pin on that sliver of ground should be tarred and feathered,
    • I’ve slowed down a bit on my practice but I’m still working on my swing. I shot 88 last week and my handicap is coming back down but I’m kind of stuck for the last month or so and not really sure what my focus should be. Looking at my video I feel I may be getting a little flippy. My biggest miss with my irons is hitting fat shots. With the driver it’s a two way miss. Contact with my driver is the best it’s ever been but I’m still prone to spraying it.     
    • I was about 18” from a hole in one on the par 3 tenth hole today. I birdied the hole.
