    My Swing (Thelonious_Funk)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 18 years My current handicap index or average score is: 5.7 My typical ball flight is: Draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pull hook This was my best strike of the day - a pure 3 to 5 yard baby draw. After years of hovering around a 9 handicap I took a big step forward. I realized I was controlling the swing with my right arm leading to pull hooks and an inability to fade the ball. I began practicing left arm only half swings with a sand wedge religiously and within a couple weeks I was striking the ball the best I ever have. My handicap dropped to a 5.3 at one point and I shot a career low 75 (par 72 - 71.0 rating) I have one swing thought - "Left" - I basically try and hit back hand tennis shots with the left side of my body. I feel great about my swing. I know the toe of the club is in the air and my posture at address is not good - I've worked on it and it feels horrible any other way. I'll continue to work on my set up at address, but not too worried about it. I've never taken a lesson in my life and like my homemade swing warts and all. Thanks for your feedback! Videos:
