Thank you for viewing my swing thread. This is my swing at home on the gc2 (I have a pc setup with the software in the garage too), hitting a 6i. This is a pretty typical swing for me- a decent one. This swing does result in some push draws, pushes, and hooks (if I get my left shoulder too steep on backswing). You may notice a funky little left foot lift on the backswing. This makes me feel more athletic and that I'm shifting my weight. Here are my current swing thoughts: backswing: left foot up + left shoulder turn behind the ball. (arms FEEL vertical like Bubba) downswing: everything but driver- Create a loud SWOOSH down and through the ball. For driver- create a loud SWOOSH at the ball. At the end of the video, you'll catch a quick glance at my data capture, but here it is so you don't miss it. 6i DTL Ball speed 121 Launch angle 21.3 Push/pull (start line or azimuth) 10.4 right Draw spin 1138 Backspin 5100 Carry 177 I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years My current handicap index or average score is: 10.1 before I got my gc2 Christmas of 2016. Worked on my swing change for 2017 and learning the ball flight laws and using the gc2. I haven't played a full 18 yet in 2018. Trending downward though :) My typical ball flight is: Push draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: HOOK. I can manage a push or push draw as that will fall into my shot cone. But when I get my left shoulder too steep on the backswing, the launch angle is too low and starts about on line but has 1500-2300 rpm of draw spin- resulting in a shot that ends up 30-40 yards left of target. Great ball speed for my swing speed, but it's a trap draw that I cannot play once I hit fairway woods and driver. I will add more videos to this thread when I can. I appreciate your input, thanks and hit them great! Videos:
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:
