. Fat Shots are definitely something I have trouble with and turning my hips rather then swaying them back is something I definitely need to work on. Appreciate the video I'll definitely be working on that as much as possible in the next couple times out on the Range.
I appreciate the insight
. Knowing I sometimes push the ball left here and there it makes sense that the swing path would be a bit too extreme in to out. I'm just having a little bit of trouble relating to what the video is trying to teach. I have a pretty big flying elbow, its really comfortable for me on the back swing, it just feels natural. Where in the video the guy that is demonstrating what hes trying to fix has almost the opposite the right elbow for him (for me my left) looks like its just coiled up and tense on that backswing and almost completely hidden behind or trapped behind his body, where as I kind of come up over the top with my elbow but its completely free just kind of guiding the club up through my backswing, my right arm is doing all the work. So is my trail elbow being like that something I need to eliminate? Do I need to bring it down and try to work that out of the swing completely? To be honest I'm not sure how well I'd be able to swing if I did do that, I feel like it would be in the way.
This is the first I've ever videod myself and aside from being like "woah I didn't realize I bring the club back that far, or look at how concave my right knee is" what you are talking about at impact is the first thing I picked out when I watched myself swing. It looks like I have a chicken wing at impact, which is so weird because when I'm swinging the club at full speed I feel fully extended but obviously I'm not. This is something I really want to work on and will really have to slow down and just deliberately do over and over again to get it right. I don't really try to take the club back as far as I do I just kind of feel comfortable doing it. I don't feel like my swing has changed very much since I first started and its just the way I've always taken the club back. Since I filmed these I started to notice my clubhead out of my right eye at the top of my backswing which is something I really never saw before but it's kind of helped my timing in a way because when I see it I know to start my down swing. I really appreciate the advice and will see what I can do with it!
. Flared out feet is definitely something I'll need to try out it seems. It seems like just by doing that it'll make it so I can't cave my lead knee in as much as I am in these and that will cut down on a lot of that shifting backwards because it will almost force me to turn rather then shift back. As for my grip. I interlock, I feel like I do a relatively good job with that. I'm pretty confident that I'm gripping the club with my fingers due to where I callous.
The only odd one, which I included because I have now is on the inside of the ring finger. I got a new glove in the past 2 weeks and that's where I interlock, it tore up my finger in that spot, but that was never something I had before.
Thank you again all for all the help. I'll be out a lot this week on the course as well as the range so hopefully I can get some of this stuff at least a little bit fixed.
As a quick aside. My Handicap Index. I really have no idea what it should be or how to calculate that... I put 19 because that's what I was given in the golf league I play in at work but I'm not too sure where that comes from or even whether that relates to what an actual Handicap Index is? So any help explaining that would be awesome as well. Although I'm sure as soon as I'm done posting this I will find it on this site somewhere.
