    My Swing (Timo GD)

    Got it! I'll try to turn my body more tomorrow on the range. Also, my arms look so much straighter than Rory's, is that something I should work on? Thans so far!

    Ah ok, got it! I guess that I'll initially hit more balls to the right since I'm late then, right?

    My Swing (Timo GD)

    You mean that I should use my arms less and my body more?

    My Swing (Timo GD)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 7 moths My current handicap index or average score is: 17.8 My typical ball flight is: high right to left The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: 1. right to right slice -> gives me nightmares 2. unintentional left to right (its "ok" most of the time, but I don't intent to do it) Videos: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Hn0DOq61Zh0" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> how do I embed that video correctly? 😮
  7. I'm happy to be here and I'm sure that I'm already addicted to Golf. Constantly thinking about it, not sleeping well when I don't understand concepts or can't hit straight shots 😜 I thought so, that's why I'll now go out on the course without thinking about it too much. I'm sure I will figure it out by playing enough, thanks a lot! I had a total of 6 lessons so far. In 5 of those I was taught the basics and in 1 I asked for help with my driver slicing A LOT to the right. I'd say that I've figured out about 80% by myself so far. I feels much more solid to me when I discover and understand something by myself out on the course or range compared to when someone is "pushing" me to do something because "that's what you have to do". I often work on specific things for a few days and only if I can't figure it out I'd ask the local pro for help. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing? I will do that asap this week! Great idea, thanks so much!
  8. I learned the correct chipping technique through a Phil Mickelson Video I found on YouTube a week ago and I was shanking about 20% to the right. I think it is exactly what you are describing, I was coming too much from in to out completely off the "target line" you mentioned. It got much better since I am not flipping the club face behind me anymore. Feels good to know that there are players struggling with similar things! 🙂
  9. Thanks for the insight! I noticed that my wedges have become alot more consistent in the last days. they don't curve as much as my long irons do eventhough I'm swinging them identically in terms of swing path

  11. Hey guys, I started playing a few months ago and spend the last weeks practicing my in to out swing which made my ball flight have a nice little draw that feels very good for me. But now I face the problem that shorter irons and wedges feel inconsistent since I'm swinging them also from in to out. My question: Do I need to have 2 "swing styles" for longer and shorter irons or is my concept wrong here? As I said I'm new to that sport, please do not stone me for my not available knowledge 😛 Thanks!
