Greetings everyone, Been a while. Just wondering your thoughts on an issue I've had. I have what seems to be a very rightward path. I own a Foresight GC2 (but without the HMT unfortunately... the GC2 alone was a pricey toy) and I consistently start the ball well right of the target line with draw spin. Often on tight courses, it is difficult for me to play those courses due to my excessive right to left curvature. I seemingly cannot control face and path independently. I can move path, but I cannot change my shut to the path FACE. I have experimented with ways to combat this: 1. I have tried to just play my push draw. On open courses, I hit high (over 30 yard peak height) push draws all day. I do worry about over turn or no turn at times. It is very frustrating to get to the 18th tee and hook a ball OB left or block a ball into the weeds. 2. I have played my push by aiming way left and tried limiting the draw. Sort of like Trevino- aim left, swing right, and walk straight-ish. When the draw is minimal, I get a really high (close to 40 yards peak height) block down the middle. On the gc2, my starting line is roughly 9-12* right with less than 1k draw spin. Driver is even more to the right with an upward angle of attack and low spin. This is much better than option 1 I've found. 3. I've tried to swing left and hold off the face. This just moves everything to the left more. My start line can get down to 1-3* right, but the draw spin remains. The ball starts more on line, but it hooks even more. The ball flight is much lower too (less than 30 yard peak height). I'll try to post video and gc2 numbers later. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Hi all, After reading the impact zone I have been trying to increase my lag. This message I got from reading the book was that at the start of the downsing the wrists are loose which leads to an increase in the wrist angle and hence lag. At first this worked out well for me and I was hitting my driver a good 20-30 yards further, however now I have developed a large block slice (ball start right and turns right) or the ball starts straight and turns right. After looking at a video of myself I am pretty sure it is due to overactive hips, at impact my hips are practically facing the target. However, I can not generate the feeling of getting lag without my lower body turning fast and keeping my wrists loose. Has anyone else had this problem ? Am I misunderstanding the message of the book ?
