  2. For a long time I have recorded my golf swing and been unhappy with the result. I always draw a line that runs from the hosel, up the club shaft and through my back. I always have felt that the correct swing would have the clubhead going up this line on the backswing and at transition return to the line quickly and remain there all the way to impact. However, whenever I get close to achieving this I have to re route my hands so much that all hell breaks lose. My natural swing sees my clubhead tracing the line at the start of the backswing but at the top of the backswing I am above the line. On the down swing my shaft remains parallel to the line but above it. I was wondering if this is acceptable, Maybe I have always been drawing the line in the wrong place, I have recently read the line should go from the ball to the sternum, if this is right my clubhead is slightly below that on the downswing. Please put me out my misery !
  3. I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: 105 My typical ball flight is: draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: push New to posting on this forum but have been avidly following this forum for some time! This is my first year playing golf, and I am absolutely obsessed. Aside from not being able to put the golf club down (I even swing at home), I love to read about technique and watch hours and hours of instructional videos. This has been a fantastic forum to read! Lately, I've been working on a revamp of my swing -- given this is my first season, I've realized my swing has had a lot of faults. So these were the things I tried to work on: 1) shallowing of club on downswing -- this was difficult to practice and I've been swinging thousands of repetitions without the ball and doing pause swings 2) initiating downswing with lower body and with left shoulder separating from chin; trying to swing left instead of flipping the club 3) flattening my wrists at top of backswing and aiming to get it flat upon impact aka best attempt at Hogan supination and trying to pivot with body I would greatly appreciate some comments and advice on my video below. There are 4 swings in total -- the first 2 are without the ball, and last two (starting at 2:30) are with the ball. My problem / question is --- I'm pretty happy with how my 2 no-ball swings look (minus fact that club is slightly across line at top); the club shaft shallows, and I get enough lag so that my club returns to the original takeaway at address (0:13 and 1:15). HOWEVER, once I have a ball on the ground, I feel that my downswing disintegrates and my form falls apart. I can't quite detect what is happening here. If you look at the last 2 swings with the ball, it seems that I am either not clearing my left hips enough, or perhaps early releasing -- I don't have the lag as much as I do in the first two swings, and the 'triangle' formed at the bottom of the downswing before impact has shrunk (see 2:41 and 4:38) My path also looks much more 'inside' than before; my arms seem to be much closer to my body. Any advice please? Thank you. Videos:
  4. Hey All, Was having some trouble really hitting my irons and driver pure and made a slight change that has drastically affected my play in a positive way. On my downswing, I'm concentrating on keeping my hands and arms close to the body which I believe is keeping my club on plane and allowing me to really hit the ball MUCH better. I typically shoot in the mid-high 90s and with this new technique, which may seem obvious, I scored a 90 and an 85 this week and am ****ing pumped. I'm curious to know if you guys think this is a real shift and the cause of my improved play or just something else I'm doing. Does anyone else employ this tactic? Also important to mention I'm far more cognizant of my tempo as well.
  5. hello, I am a 3.4 handicap and I am 15 years old. I'm seeking advice on how to start my downswing. I've been told that I should try to make my right shoulder change places with my left shoulder (I am left handed). I've also been told to try to shift my hips towards the target and keep body closed. I can show swing video if need be. thank you :)))
