PLEASE Help! Can anyone recommend a or some good drills that will help me learn to close my club face. About 60% of my swings are either a straight or push type slice. My club plane and hand plane are good. My back swing angle is good. My tempo is good. I set up to the ball and get aligned well. My grip is above par. I just can't seem to bring my club face into square at impact. I previously thought that I was simply going in to out on my down swing. By all video accounts that was the case. So, I worked on it. I placed a water bottle about 12" in front of and slightly outside my right toes. That got my club plane on track. My hand plane has always been consistent.... PLEASE help!!!!
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.
I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: average score is 87 My typical ball flight is: right to left The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice/push with longer clubs especially driver and 3 wood Any help would be very much appreciated!
