    My Swing (imthebogeyman)

    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. 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?
  5. 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!
  6. I've been working on my swing a lot lately in my garage . .recording myself hitting balls into a net. I'm seeing a lot of good things. .my swing is pretty on-plane but I am casting late in the downswing. I especially notice that when my club is parallel to the ground, my hands are well behind my right thigh. I've tried some things to fix it with little success. . but this is not about that . .this is about what I just tried which was to rig my video so the ball is out of frame and then make a swing a few inches *above* the ball. What!?! I kind of had a suspicion of what I would see on video but what I did see amazed me . .my hands were right in the middle of my right thigh . .exactly where they should be. The amount of lag was unbelievable. There was no flip or chicken-wing. I looked like a tour player (no . .not really . .but compared to when I actually hit a ball, yes). All I can say is that was interesting. I have no idea how or if I can use it to stop casting but at least I know I'm physically capable of it. If you record your swing and you strugggle with casting . .you should try this sometime.
