  1. I can see where youre coming from. It does look like I’m swinging pretty slow. I guess I have been focused on positions so much here lately, I have forgotten to swing fast! I know you say most of the speed comes from the arms Iacas... I remember seeing a post about that in the Swing Thoughts forum. Thanks for the reply.
  2. Thanks for the reply. So you’re saying that I need more hip turn in the backswing or the downswing?
  3. I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years My current handicap index or average score is: 85 My typical ball flight is: A little high with all of my shots. I ALWAYS miss with my driver to the right. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Just trying to gain more distance. I can usually hit the ball pretty solid, however I really lacking distance. I usually hit my my driver about 220. My 9-iron usually only goes about 120-130. The DTL video is with a pitching wedge. The FO swing is with a 9-iron. Videos:
  4. Hi all, I will be leaving in a week to live in Valparaiso Chile for 6 months while I study Spanish. I was wondering if anybody knows of golf courses around Santiago or Valpo? I have always heard there are few, if any public golf courses in South America, just hoping to get lucky and play a few rounds while I am down there! Thanks!
  5. Great post Mike! This is something that I have been thinking about for quite some time (probably a bit too much!) However what would you say to someone that appears to keep getting their arms "stuck" behind them with level shoulders? Not trying to turn this into a "my swing" thread just curious about this one particular aspect of a swing! I try to emulate the sensation of dropping the arms down and keeping the handle low to the ground as mentioned in the video. I just can't move my hands directly in front of my thigh when the club is parallel!
  6. Went to the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst last year (I live 30 mins away, but have never played it! :( always good to dream though!) First off, its insanely crowded! And for me, being in the Sandhills of NC it was insanely hot as well. I'm sure it being in Washington state this year it will be a little cooler for you. The one thing I would recommend is that you don't walk all over the place. It's good to find somewhere to camp out for a bit, because dealing with the large crowds and walking all day can get you agitated and tired really quick! Hope this helps some!
  7. Here is me now at the top of the backswing. I feel like I may have improved to where I have some more hinge? What do you guys think? However I still am really struggling with syncing the arms with the pivot. You can see my hands are nowhere near my thigh like @mvmac showed with the golfer in an earlier photo. Looking at this I can see that I didn't do a good job of getting my weight forward. If I were to get my weight forward, would that make my arms sync with my pivot or is there something I need to do along with getting my weight forward better? Thanks!
  8. Hey @mvmac I was abl e to get outside today and get another video after I worked on my grip. What do you think? I feel like I do have more wrist hinge at the top of the back swing but when the club is parallel to the ground in the downswing, my hands appear to be in the same spot as before... I wonder why this is? Thank you for any and all advice!
  9. @mvmac Are you saying that hinging of the wrist is something that "just happens" with the proper grip. Or is it something that I need to actively do with each swing? Thanks!
  10. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I am looking forward to trying these things out! Thanks again @mvmac
  11. @mvmac Here is an iron swing where I at least try to get my weight forward. I hope this helps some! Thanks again!
  12. Ok @mvmac thanks for the reply! I will work on getting a video up tonight!
  13. Hi all, Lately I have been working on getting my weight forward at impact with my golf swing because I have been hitting a few fat shots here and there. I have used several drills to help me with this such as the half ball under my left foot (I am right-handed). But one thing I have noticed recently is that when I start my down swing all press down with the left foot like I am supposed to and it feels like all my weight is on my left side right after transition, but by the time I get down to impact and the beginning of the follow through I feel as if I am still on my right side or I am pulling up by that point. So do I need to start having my weight forward later in the downswing? Thanks for the replies!
  14. Here is what I think is a pretty good swing with a 56* wedge. Any comments?
  15. Hi guys I have been working on all the advice given and I have also taken some lessons here and there. I like to think that my swing has improved. What do you guys think? Is there anything else you think that I am doing wrong?
