    My Swing (Tommy_Boy14)

    So I have just recently developed this problem where I went from hitting this nice beautiful baby draw on every shot to this massive 40+ yard draw (I’m sure there is a better word for it but that’s what it is.) I really think the issue is me over rotating through my follow through of my swing I just can feel myself coming around in my follow through and not “finishing high” like I should be but my contact is middle of the face and solid every time. I have tried everything I can think of to fix this I’ve done the towel drill, slowed my swing down to focus on fundamentals, the water bottle drill, half swings, swinging like there is no tomorrow, dropping my front foot back, moving it forward and nothing helps. I went with my girlfriend and used her clubs just to slow me down and get back to the fundamentals (just a starter set with a really soft women’s flex) and I was hitting the ball really straight, so much so that I considered using her clubs the next time I go out lol. But then I go back to mine apply the exact same swing and back to the huge draw. I’m also having an issue with my woods turning over in my hand when I make contact with the ball but that’s a whole other animal and I can get away with a 3 or 4 iron off the tee at the course I usually play. Thanks in advance for any help y'all can give me!!! (ALSO sorry for the watermark on the video it was the only way to get it into a format to post on here) . I've been Playing Golf for: 18 Years My current handicap index or average score is: Average Score: 78 My typical ball flight is: Baby Draw (2-3 yards) The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: HUGE Draw (40+ Yards) Videos:

    Cutting Down Driver Shaft Length

    I was having the same issue with the stock shaft and was told by my local golf pro to go to the X-Stiff because of my build and swing speed (110 average with driver). Would just choking down on the shaft as is now help at all? Honestly I think I just need to go get a lesson to help with my driver and 3 wood because every club from my sand wedge up to my hybrids goes dead straight every time.
  5. I'm thinking about cutting down my driver shaft to the length of my 4 iron (39.5") I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, I rebuilt my driver with a new TP X-Stiff shaft (TaylorMade R1 X-Stiff 80g) but still have the old one (TaylorMade stock R1 stiff shaft 55g) so I could cut it down and if this doesn't work out no harm no foul. I hit my irons incredibly well and very pure my 4 iron flies about 225 off the deck. I'm trying to become more accurate with my drives, right now my miss is right and when I say right i mean WAYYYYYYYY right. But my irons are dead straight every time and very pure so what I'm trying to do is eliminate that right miss with my drives. I'm ok giving up some distance if it will come with more accuracy but I'm just curious if cutting down my driver length almost 5" will help with that or not. Thanks
