  1. My Swing (goodguy96)

    Thank you for your comment! i've been working on the tees under the armpits drill for the last two days, played 18 today, shot 72 so it wasn't terrible by all means but i noticed my start lines of the ball were straighter, and less massive over curves...i just think i have to learn to sync the arms and body together maintaining the pressure points to my torso....
  2. My Swing (goodguy96)

    FO view, sorry about the club twirling! it's just become a bad habit\nerves tick i use to help deal with pressure in tournaments of which i haven't played well in at all...I don't understand why even though i practice and play golf everyday (golf is pretty much my life) i don't fare well in tournaments I've been Playing Golf for: 5 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.0 handicap, average scores being between 70-80 My typical ball flight is: Push Draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:Over draw and Push slice DTL view,3\4 Cart View, my swing is based pretty much on the stack and tilt model with a few different "pieces" worked in...What are your guys thoughts on my swing? what should i work on? my miss hits are mostly over draws and push slices Ball flight wise, Thin contact more often than fat contact on miss hits.... any comments helpful!
  3. Here are the reasons you are topping the ball 1: your weight is to far back at impact 2: with your weight too far back at impact you pull your arms up to avoid hitting behind the ball and Hitting the ball fat 3 : you release your body`s forward tilt at too fast of a rate and when the club face hits the ball it hits with too much ASCENT and not enough DESCENT, here is a drill for fixing topped shots,set up with 90% of your weight on your lead foot ( if you are a righty its you left foot if you are a lefty its your right foot) lean the handle of the golf club foward until it covers the ball of your lead foot, now make SLOW and SHORT swings at first focusing on keeping your weight 90% on your lead foot Throughout backswing then as you make the downswing move your weight even farther forward until its 100% on your lead foot after impact, also focus on throughout your swing keeping the angle that is formed between your right wrist and the golf club at the setup when you lean the handle of the club forward until well after impact and in to your follow through... AKA "the flying wedge" Good luck! Here is a good youtube video about this drill.
  4. Is shaping the ball overrated

    Yes and no, you can become overly obsessed with trying to work the ball some many different ways when just Having a one stock shot you can hit every time would do fine, instead most hackers\high handicappers spend hours of their time very little golf time working on hitting fifty billion different shots when they can`t even hit one shot shot pattern right.. but i`m not saying that their are not times when you should not try to add another shot shape into your ball flight pattern but what i`m saying is, make sure you have your shot that you can hit EVERY TIME down first before you try to add anything else, I mean really? golf`s hard enough as it is trying to hit one shot! to make a long story short keep your shot shape simple!
  5. Where do you place the most value in your golf game?

    Long Game, If i can drive the ball in the fairway i`ll be able to shoot a Good score, if not, I`m Going to shoot Some where in the High 80`s!
  6. Who else plays old clubs?

    I play Some REALLY Old Clubs and i Shoot in the low 80`s every Time!
  7. Do You Support the PGA's "Tee It Forward" Effort?

    Exactly! I think some Guys are just too proud to play off the Gold\White tees! I have to play of Shorter Tees since i only hit my driver about 230-240.
  8. Do You Support the PGA's "Tee It Forward" Effort?

    I think its a Great Idea!....... well anything that speeds up play and lets me hit a Mid\Short iron in to the green is a Good idea To me!
