  1. The grip I would think is correct. I have the right hand v pointed to my left eye. I have a strong right hand. Thumb is on left side of the grip. The left hand v is pointing to the left ear. Maybe my grip pressure is off. Do you have a video that shows me the proper grip? I don't think my swing plane is bad, it goes back on the line. I was once told I swing to far from the inside, I swing to far left. Thank you for input. I will try to regrip the club and start back at basics.
  2. [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--jXa-qFJMo[/VIDEO] [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr4c5GLRCVo[/VIDEO] I have been struggling with accuracy big time. Usually a push or a hook. I have been taking divots infront of ball, I set up two tour sticks barely the size of the club head and hit it perfectly between the two. The balls are hit center of clubface 80% of time. However I am not having the accuracy I want. So I feel at times it is my tempo or I get disconnected in the swing. I was hoping someone would be able to give me some input and help me get back to be able to control my ball. Any good drills you think I should do?
  3. I've been Playing Golf for: 2 years competitvely, 4 years when I first came to site, but played maybe 3 rounds in 2 years. My current handicap index or average score is: Lowest handicap was a 3 and now it is up to a 7 (struggling) My typical ball flight is: Push or a hook lately , use to be a tight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Push and hook I am working on the 5 Simple keys swing. Any thoughts will really help. I feel like I come into the ball to steep on the downswing, with the toe hitting first and I need to make it shallower.
  4. I have been struggling with consistency lately and I want to start back at the grip. I realized I had a super strong right hand grip and also a somewhat strong left grip. I AM A LEFTY. I started to make my left hand a little weaker and more on top of the club with my trigger finger down the shaft a little. However it just feels so uncomfortable and I think it is due to my right hand grip being do strong and my thumb is all the way on the side of the grip instead of more on top. I would like to mark my golf glove and hand when I play to make sure I am holding the club properly. I was wondering if anyone else does this and what is the perfect markings on the club and the pressure points. I read somewhere that I should hold the club in right hand with bottom three fingers. Should the right hand be more in fingers or in the heel pad area. Please let me know. I want to start becoming more consistent again. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  5. For the past 3 months I have struggled with my consistency. I use to be dead accurate with my irons however they been going left and right ect. Just not myself. Last night I bought 300 balls and told myself it is time to figure it out. Playing with group stance posture ect. Nothing was working. Then I decided to slow my swing down. Once I did that I got my baby draw back that I had 3 months ago. So I decided to look at old film when I hit the ball well and new film. I started paying attention to the speed of the swing. When it felt like I was swinging at perfect tempo 21/7 about a 1 second swing. I was not always consistent. Last night I slowed everything down and allowed the lower body and upper body be in sync I was swinging about 1.2 seconds. Like 27/9 tempo. It made drastic improvements. Swing looks exactly the same just a little slower tempo. I hope this solves a lot of my problems, but I was wondering what people thoughts or have come across same thing. I was always worried about swinging hard because I was accurate in the past and hit my 7 iron about 180yds. Last night with the slowed down swing I was afraid I wouldn't hit it as far. However, I think I got more distance out of it. Plus I played the ball not so far forward in my stance. Which felt like it helped a lot as well. I use to have a ton of push shots, but last night only a few. It helped me hopefully it can help others. I will try again tonight and let you know.
  6. I tried a few things today, but I felt one move drastically change my ball striker and accuracy today. I am lefty remember but I turned my right/ front shoulder more. When I was taking my swing my shoulder was not getting to or past the ball. As before if it was an angle it was like at 45 degrees, however when I make it feel like it is perpendicular I was hitting all the balls perfectly with a baby draw instead of a push slice. Felt like i gave myself time to get through the swing instead of rush it. I think it makes sense because if I don't finish shoulder turn and swing like I was my shoulders would be open big time at impact. If I make full shoulder turn at impact my shoulders are Parallel to the target line. Let me know what you think Thanks

  8. For the past three months, I have been struggling with a push fade and I am stumped. I was doing great towards the end of last season and now I am trying to prepare for this season and all I keep hitting is push fades. I checked my lie angle and they say I need clubs 3 degrees upright. I am assuming because I am coming over the top that is why I hit the ground first with the toe of the club. If you look at my clubs they have wear marks perfectly where the ball is suppose to be struck on the face of the club. I am attaching videos and pictures, really would appreciate any help someone can give that they see I am doing wrong. When I swing this is what I think, (I am a lefty) right arm against chest, rotate shoulders and hinge wrist. Downswing try to hit my left hip and hit the inside quarter of the golf ball. Sometimes on my follow through it feels like I struggle to get to parallel like I do on the back swing, it is like I feel like I do not release the club and just hold my hands through impact. How does my setup look? How about impact?
  9. Sounds good message me the way you want me to contact you and we can set something up. Always looking to meet new people.
  10. I just moved to apex nc and I am looking to meet some serious golfers like myself. I try to play 3x a week on course and practice almost everyday. I haven't played in a month because of my move down to nc, but now I am ready to get at it again. I am looking for a new golf coach good in the area recommendations please, cheap fun courses until I get in competitive mode and just a few friends to make while I am here.

  12. I am very right hand dominant. Swing lefty but all right hand.
  13. Ever week it has been a struggle. I have about 4 good days and then I have 3 days that are not very good. The ball goes mostly left (I am a lefty) or when I overswing because I am frustrated it is a pull to the right. At two different golf stores they stated that I need my clubs to be bent 2 degrees upright. Can that make a major difference. My swing is as follows ---- Keep right arm tight to chest all the way through the swing and halfway through hinge wrists. Put pressure on front foot toe and don't let me go to heel. I have posted my swing videos from this entire past year and I will attach the link from this website again. Please let me know.
