Handicap Index

  1. Hi, I had a trackman session yesterday with my pro, and the major problem was face angle. It varied between closed and open, everything from +5 to -5 degrees. (Swing path pretty consistent around 0 degrees ) The pro was pretty sure that this indicated that I was too "handsy", and when I tried my wrists to be more passive it did help. Now, my question is: how can I have passive wrists but still get a good lag? (I have always had a weak lag, I'm a swinger not a hitter.) I feel like I need to be active with my hands to be able to trap the ball and get a good attack angle (talking about irons now), but that is maybe a misunderstanding? Thanks for any input!
  3. 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 ?
  4. 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:
  5. I was talking to a friend of mine who is quite an accomplished golfer about how I can't stop casting and throwing away lag, etc. He said . . . "When I was playing golf in college I would go to the range and think about how to create as much lag as possible - I would think about breaking the shaft over my right shoulder" What on Earth?!? Is this one of those "feel is not real" kind of things? Or is this something that you could think about?
  6. I've been trying to get rid of my flip and add lag as long as I've been golfing, with just about zero luck. The other day I started taking swings and removing my right hand completely at the top of the swing and realized I wasn't flipping at all, perfect impact position. This made me realize my right hand was the likely culprit, so I tried something I have never heard anyone recommend and I'd like to know if anyone has tried this or heard of it: From the start of my downswing, I started pulling "up" with my right hand- almost like I was fighting the downswing. What resulted was a powerful strike with tons of lag and almost no flip. I've posted some before and after shots. If you're looking to stop casting, try this and let me know what you think. I haven't been able to try it at the range because it's been raining for a week solid. Thanks!
