  1. I was able to get out and get 9 in today. I tried to really focus on that bumping the hip at the transition to start the down swing, and it seemed to do wonders for my iron/wedge play. Much easier to get the club bottoming out ahead of the ball. I think most of my off target shots were due to alignment. However, I noticed when trying to do it for my driver, I was hitting these HUGE banana slices. Is the hip bump movement something a little different when it comes to the driver/fairway metal?
  2. Thanks for the feedback Erik! Are there any drills in particular you would recommend for these areas? Honestly I don't have a good answer. I don't think my contact is all that great. I think practicing on mats lets me get away with a lot of poor shots. I struggle with bottoming out after the ball/compressing this ball. So a lot of my miss hits are typically ground, then ball and come up fat and short.
  3. Was able to get out and get some videos at 240 fps today:
  4. To be honest, the 105 is an average over the last 17 months I have been playing. I would say my last couple of rounds have been mid to high 90. Here are the same video's slowed down using iMovie:
  5. I've been Playing Golf for: 17 Months My current handicap index or average score is: 105 My typical ball flight is: Erratic The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slice / Fat Hits Videos:
  6. To the OP: I have very similar issues with my golf game, as well as the same handicap. I too feel like I am never holding the club correctly, and it seems every time i put a club in my hand, it is in a different manner. I try the technique mentioned in the video posted by dennyjones from the Annika academy by lifting all 4 fingers, except index and "6-th finger". What I find is, in order to keep the grip from sliding up my palm and losing control, is having to rotate my left wrist to a more parallel position to the ground, versus a nice vertical position. Almost like I am covering the grip with the palm of my hand. After placing my other hand on the club, and going to address, this translate to a very bowed lead wrist, or strong grip. I'm lost as to what I doing wrong. I currently have all my clubs fitted with the Golf Pride Align MCC +4 Mid Size grip, as I have larger hands with longer fingers. However, this doesn't seem to be helping with keeping the club resting under the pad on my palms.
