  1. Winter Depression Thread

    Would you rather play in the rain or in the sunny cold?
  2. What are your 2017 Golf Goals?

    As I still consider myself a beginner: 1. Develop a swing with all of the correct fundamentals 2. Be able to control the pace of my putting 3. Not give up on a round because of bad first couple of holes 4. Reach a handicap lower than 18 5. And many other goals which will arise due to problems I will encounter!
  3. My Swing (sgvg)

    The main way I have been learning golf so far has been by comparing my swing to slow motion videos of certain pro golfers on youtube and they trying to adjust my swing to match theirs. That is perhaps why it LOOKS good but I haven't practiced actually hitting balls at targets. I figured I might as well capitalise on the fact that I am starting golf late and don't have a "natural swing" yet by not getting used to any swing untill I mold it perfectly. That is probably why my handicap is so low - I change swing every couple of days. Regarding the shoulders, I am not really sure I understand the relation between my shoulder and the flattening of the shaft, or should flattening the shaft be more of a feel in my hands? In any case I will look at Randall's thread on that topic as I have not really concentrated on it before. Thank you very much for your reply! I understand now, I had not seen the link to the thread. Thank you so much! :D
  4. My Swing (sgvg)

    Thank you very much, I will try shifting forwards, my only fear is my head not being behind the ball at impact. And I am not sure I understand what you mean by the key #2 video? And I certainly will check out the rest of the site, I just don't really feel qualified to contribute to other threads until I understand golf better! :)) Understood, it makes sense that one should exaggerate an adjustment. Since I am learning golf from so many varied online sources, I never really have a clear idea on grip so I will look at it now. Thank you very very much!!!
  5. My Swing (sgvg)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 3 months My current handicap index or average score is: 36 My typical ball flight is: straight The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: divot before ball Videos: My progress has stalled due to not understanding the practical execution of weight shift. I have watched all videos possible on it but cannot seem to do it. I have been looking at adam scott's swing in particular and the way he shifts his weight but it is an enigma to me. I also struggle with maintaining my posture in the down swing. I have fallen in love with the game of golf over the last three months. Any help at all is enormously appreciated!
