I joined a golf club last June and have really got into it it’s become a borderline obsession at this stage. My poor girlfriend is now a golf widow and by the looks of it could be one for years to come. I hit a nice high fade with my driver and draw every other club in my bag. I tend to catch the ball clean off the turf never really taking a divot. My irons when they’re off can turn into a really bad draw or hook. Recently I’ve been trying to keep my knees flexed on the backswing and through the strike to keep myself more over the ball but it’s only helped slightly. I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: My current handicap is 11 but for my last 12 rounds I’m averaging 78 My typical ball flight is: Fade with driver and draw with every other club The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Overdrawing to the point where it’s a pull hook
Hey everyone, sorry for being spotty with my presence here. Quit teaching high school after 7 years and entered a good law school. Finals are pretty tough. What little time I have had I've been able to swing on my gc2 a little bit and I've gained a lot of ballspeed in a year. I attribute it mostly to my strength level increases from powerlifting. Also, due to the long lay off, I don't have any swing thoughts or anything to bog me down. I just swing the clubhead like Ernest Jones talked about- just feel the clubhead throughout the swing and a freewheeling sling of the clubhead in the downswing. My average ball speed has gone up about 5 mph across the bag. Ok, here's my question for you guys. Do you prefer to 1) swing away from trouble and bend it back OR 2) swing at the trouble (or just inside it in case you straight ball it) and curve it away? I know there's a lot of variable like wind, pin location, sloping of the green or fairway, doglegs, etc. Further, I understand that many generally play one go-to shape (for me a draw, but i can fade it as well). I haven't played golf on a course in over a year, just 3 times on the sim (law school...) so was wondering what you guys think. I have a copy of LSW, but can't remember if it talks about this topic. When answering the question you can consider a tee shot or approach shot where there's absolute death on one side and the other side is fine. Further, assume for this question that you can draw/fade equally relatively fine. What do you do- aim at/just inside the trouble & curve it away OR aim away and curve it toward the trouble? Thanks guys.
Let's hear your thoughts on it. My view Fade all day Long. Even though I played draw off the tee and approach into the green my whole life never really was able to depend on it. I recently started playing fades and only fades regardless of the situation, gained about 5-7 shots per round. Loss of Distance: 10-12 YDS with my driver, maybe 5ish YDS with irons. but what I gained in accuracy far outweighs the loss of distance IMHO
6'5" 230, two torn shoulders, and in the woods Jk, but really. First post here, but not new to a forum community. Quick back ground. Played baseball til I was 24, have a slap tear in both my labrums from it, and need some help with swing path due to range of motion. My lead (left) shoulder has a tendency to click when my backswing is on the ideal path, so my natural path gets reallyyy shallow to subconsciously avoid that pain. I shoot anywhere from a 74-85 and the driver is all 11 of those strokes.Thanks a bunch in advance. Been a long time reader -- look forward to contributing where I can.
