    My Swing (Timo GD)

    Wow, I already hate but also love this sport. Went to the range today and started with this: Sockets for days..I was either slicing it to the right big time or hitting a socket. Not even a single straight one. Then I started to turn my hip more on the takeaway and after about 50 shots I got some of the best shots I ever had on the range (this one landed right next to the red flag ~ 155meters / 177yards with a 6 iron) By rotating my hips more at the takeaway I felt like the club went more behind my back allowing me to come from the inside more. Instantly went on the course, played fast 5 holes due to the darkness and finished with 4 pars and one boogie (damn this one-footer putt). For me, thats insanely good since I'm only a 18 Handicapper. I know that my impact is far from perfect, my hip is at 0° at impact instead of around 30°. I will work on this the next weeks! Any thoughts from you guys? Thanks so much!

    My feet are correct, I added a alignment stick on the first video at 2:35 just to be sure. Now that you are saying it, I never thought about checking my shoulder. I thought they'd be aligned correctly when my feet are too. They are not obviously 😮

    Hey, 2 weeks ago I bought an alignment stick and discovered that I was aiming with my feet and shoulders 15 to 20 degrees to the right of my target. I think you call that sth like hitting over cross.Now that I fixed the alignment problem I am slicing 80% of my drives from 10 to 50 feet to the right. Yesterday I recorded myself hitting drivers for 15 minutes down the line. One of the 2 videos has a horrible quality, no idea why, sorry for that. Thanks for all the help!

    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?

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

    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? 😮
  11. 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!
  12. 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! 🙂
  13. 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

  15. 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!
