  1. Not yet, but i did notice the ball placement has been alot to do with it. I have been taking the club back a little higher and playing with the ball stance and that has helped alot. starting the club head about 3-5 inches behind the ball has helped also, i think it is helping keeping my shoulders more square than open. I been practicing the throwing the club drill which helps mentally on the downswing also. I would have a drive that would be pulled to the left on only a couple holes instead of most of them
  2. weight shift trigger

    Besides setting alignment stick next to me is there any other drills I can do to get correct hip rotation and weight transfer
  3. weight shift trigger

    So the left knee should flex towards ball on backswing and then rotate out to start down swing? should the right leg stay flexed or straighten?
  4. weight shift trigger

    thanks guys, alot of this is confusing for me since i am fairly new, is there some good drills i can work on with backswing and downswing hip moves and weight transfers?
  5. weight shift trigger

    so on my back swing just keep the legs quiet with a little more weight on my front leg and what starts the hips on the downswing? Is it a lateral movement first or just try to turn the hips for the follow through. I have problems starting the hips on the downswing so just keep the legs stable and still and head still and turn upper body? What then is a good way to start the down swing?
  6. i am a higher handicap and just started back golf this year after 15 years. I am doing solid with my irons, but with my driver my misses are pulls and high push fades. To me i feel like i am having trouble getting off my back foot on to my right to get a good weight trasfer. Is there any drills or triggers to start the downswing with the hips so i dont get my hands and shoulders starting the downswing?
  7. I will take another video tonight. It looks good lol. One thing I noticed last night was I moved ball a lot more forward in my stance like even with big toe and I was getting straight long shots and felt like I could come from the inside a lot easier
  8. i have not, i will try that I only have a side veiw from last night
  9. So during the backswing when rotating, rotate the left shoulder down towards the ball?
  10. i will try to post a video toninght that i took this weekend. I have been struggling with big hooks on my driver misses. I noticed in my video that my club is swinging lower and around my body. I think i maybe taking it back too far to the inside and swinging in to out since i started out with a slice earlier in the year and now my big misses are mostly hooks and sometimes a big push. Is there some drills or something i can work on to get that fixed? Should i be working on a steeper backswing and swinging more on a nuetral path on the down swing? I also noticed my legs and hips move around alot during the backswing. SHould i be keeping my hips and feet quiet during the backswing? My left heel raises really high
  11. Fall Apart in Men's League

    what are some ways you guys relax before teeing off or someway to just get the pressure off
  12. Fall Apart in Men's League

    i play every ball like i would in tournament play. I think i just get nervous and worried about doing bad and it gets in my head. I just need to figure out someway to stay relaxed and not worry about hitting a bad shot. All that goes through my head when in competition and when a casual round i just go up and not think about a bad shot because it doesnt matter. Does that make sense?
  13. Fall Apart in Men's League

    thanks, it is definatly a mindset, i just get nervous and seems like i forget what i need to do or just tense up. It just blows my mind how good i do when there is no pressure compared to competition play
  14. this is my first year back in 16 years of golfing. I play in a small town with a 9 hole golf course. I have a high handicap which is good for my team, but here is the problem. when i am out causally playing with a friend or by myself i will shoot in the mid to upper 40's sometimes lower. When it comes to mens league day i just fall apart. I am assuming it is from the nerves, but how do you guys overcome this, i know i am a consistant player in the 40;s but just cant bring that same game to the leauge
