  1. Hello Everybody, I have really been improving my iron ball striking and getting some straight shots, which is great. However, my driver has fallen ill. Every swing lately has been a low hook that goes left and stays left and usually ends up unplayable. The last time that I was hitting the driver straight, I found that moving the ball unnaturally far back in my stance (about the middle of the stance or maybe even a touch back) gave me a straight-ish shot. However, the ball was still very low. Logically, I think I should start looking at my club head at address to see if it is closed. And I will. But I wanted to see if the crowd had any suggestions. I also don't think the club head would address the flight of the ball too much. I may be wrong there. At any rate, I've never felt comfortable swinging my driver, almost like I have little control over it versus swinging irons. So I'm interested in hearing your thoughts. Thanks!
  2. Hello all, I have been golfing for 7 years and playing competitive golf for 4 years and for the past 8 months i have been almost unable to drive the ball of the tee. Used to be a +1 handicap and now shooting in the 80's losing 4 balls a round. Not only with my driver, but also my 3 wood or even hybrid. My misses are crazy left, starting left and turning left. Unplayable. But on the practice range, i hit my driver fine. I even hit my 3 wood and hybrid fine on the course just not on the tee box. i have noticed that my grip feels strange and sees the grip changes at the end of the swing. does anyone have any idea what this might be?
  3. 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.
  4. Hey guys and Gals, Just wanting to see if I could get some feedback on my swing and hopefully get some takeaways on drills to fix the issues you see. I have recently started playing and love the game. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I've been Playing Golf for: 2 months My current average score is: 95 My typical ball flight is: Left to RIght The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hard Slice and Hard Hook. Videos:
  5. 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.
