    My Swing (Hugh Jars)

    Been working on the half speed swings. Looking at the vid I think I need to release more in my follow through. Will keep practicing these. https://youtu.be/py8kbl-gD1 Had a go a couple of days ago doing some pitch shots using alignment sticks. Feels very weird. What’s everyones recommendation using these? I can see I’m not rotating my hips still using them. https://youtu.be/xZNiKrlCdI8

    Thanks. I’m prepared to put in the work and start with small swings. I did the same to get more loose in my swing and release more, and have put in many hours working improving my chipping and putting. Anyone know where can I find information on how I can progress from half swing, and what correct, slow half swings look like? Everything is based on a full swing, I’ve put in hours trying to go from 7 oclock to 1 o’clock doing half swings as suggested by a pro I had a lesson with. But another “pro” on here saw it and said it was wrong albeit offering nothing else.

    Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. I have been working on more shoulder turn. The vid below from a session I had on the range earlier this week. Ive just got to a point with it though where I dont know if Im doing the wrong thing and ingraining into my muscle memory poor habits attempting it. Im not striking the ball consistently or cleanly when I attempt more shoulder turn, as opposed to my normal turn where I am actually striking it relatively well. And from my own analysis I dont think Im swinging the club more shallow as a result. So something is going wrong, hence prompting me to post this thread. Id appreciate your feedback from the vid below.

    Yep, I have a swing thread. I went to the range today and focused on reducing my wrist hinge. Rather, I just stopped consciously thinking about doing it. Seemed to strike the ball ok. The rubber mats of the range really give false confidence I find.

    Something Ive realized over the last couple of days is there is something wrong with my wrist hinge. Or grip.

    Stubborn Steepness

    I have read many instruction articles, watched many instructional videos with what seems to be hundreds of different methods to shallow a swing. But Im still yet to come across someone who has successfully done it. Its all "a work in progress". There is so many information out there that I don't know what to believe, what to listen to, what concepts I should stick to. There are so many gimmicky ideas and quick fixes, the Me and My Golf guys lead the way with this. All these quick fixes and drills never talk about how their gimmicks transfer into a full swing long term. Like how many reps must be done, how should their drills be progressed into a full swing, how to maintain their supposed fixes. So Im wondering if there is anyone out there who can share their training methods on how they managed to shallow their swing out. Ive managed to improve mine steep swing somewhat by fixing my set-up - primarily standing further from the ball, giving myself more room and not cramping myself up so much. And focussing on being as relaxed as possible throughout the whole swing. Still, Im miles away from having a downswing that is on plane. April 2018: A couple of weeks ago:

    Hi all, I have a question - can shortening your swing help shallow it out?
  9. Hugh Jars

    My Swing (Hugh Jars)

    Will do.

    Been doing some work on getting more hip rotation and front leg flex into my swing. Not sure how this will translate on the range and course - will try it out tomorrow. Feels like Im generating easier power. Also, I’m not sure I’ve been able to improve significantly on shallowing the club out. Any tips, observations appreciated.

    Thankyou, this is great. I never noticed the lack of hip rotation and flexion with my front knee. Ive been so set on being as still as possible with my legs as Ive always thought flexing them would move my head and throw the rest of my swing off track. The articles were very interesting too. I will practice this and video my progress.

    Thanks, Ill work on getting some front on footage. Whats wrong with this swing plane if you dont mind me asking?

    Here is another video from the range today. I’ve been doing heaps of half swings focussing on directing the club on a 7 o’clock to 1 o’clock path. I can shallow the club with my practice swings, and get decent (75-80%) power with half swings compared to full swings. But when transitioning to a full swing I go back to being steep on the downswing. I just want to be able to transition my work with halfswings into a full swing.

    Hoping to get some tips to flatten my downswing. I have a tendency to come in very steep and dig up turf. I’ve been working on my positioning - standing further from the ball, fist and thumb from the end of the club. Here is the link to my swing thread the
