Handicap Index

  1. This isn't an anti-Hogan post, far from it, but I thought I'd share my variation on the Hogan set-up because it really has done wonders for me. My "bad" shot has always been a pull slice or if I leave the face open (rarely) a normal slice. I'm self-taught but have used the fundamentals as as my main source of guidance. Hogan set up his swing to guard against the hook, his bad shot. That got me thinking isn't a pull slice/normal slice basically the polar opposite of a hook? Keeping the same stance (that is my right foot is about 6 inches behind my left foot, set-up for a draw) exactly the way
  2. Let's hear your thoughts on it. My view Fade all day Long. Even though I played draw off the tee and approach into the green my whole life never really was able to depend on it. I recently started playing fades and only fades regardless of the situation, gained about 5-7 shots per round. Loss of Distance: 10-12 YDS with my driver, maybe 5ish YDS with irons. but what I gained in accuracy far outweighs the loss of distance IMHO
  3. 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"
  4. I've been Playing Golf for: 4.5years My current handicap index or average score is: 5.8 My typical ball flight is: fade/slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: fade/slice. i know my swing has a very flat takeaway, however it has never served as much of an issue. I used to be able to have a nice draw or fade on the ball at command, however now all my swings come way from the outside, and I have no shot at hitting a draw, only hooks. Ive lost a ton of distance, no matter what I do I cant seem to get the feeling of hitting the ball from the inside anymore. Not that
  5. Hi everyone new here to this site got here looking for the perfect swing and have thought about the graves revolution all the people selling info and ran across a debate on here from another member that looked like he didn’t really want to hear what some of you guys had to say. Well I’m opposite and would rather get some tips and info instead of paying for videos that say to swing this way or this way etc. I played many years ago but faded away from it. Recently picked back up and I have a severe slice or one hell of a draw lol. No matter what I do I still slice I have worked on cl
  6. I hit a big slice with my driver. I cannot figure out if it is because of one of the following or something I do not know about: - Swinging over the top - Swinging with my arms instead of my body - Club face, very offline with hands halfway through backswing - Something else Please let me know what you think. I've been Playing Golf for: 4 years My current handicap index or average score is: 90s My typical ball flight is: 260 The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice
  7. Hi everyone. Brand new to the Sand Trap, but have been golfing steadily since 2013 (at least once per week). I have a serious problem with consistency and keeping the ball on the fairway in general. Beginning to get worried I may just not ever be a good player. I average in the mid-90s, and very rarely hit the upper 80's, but still struggle with keeping my scores under 100 from time to time. Lack of consistency has lead to me feeling insecure who I golf with. I know that my partners won't say anything, but I think they are judging me on the inside. While some of my friends who have been playin
  8. I've heard it said that 90% of all golfers struggle with a slice at some point in their golfing careers. My question is, when that time came for you, how did you deal with it? What advice would you give to a younger version of yourself when that slice first surfaced?
  9. Why can't I take a full swing on the driver without slicing? If I take a lot slower swing it goes straight(about 250 yards) but when I swing faster it slices.The harder I swing the more it slices.I feel i'm leaving some distance by slowing the swing and would like to be free to take a full back swing and accellerate as fast as possible through the swing, what do I need to do? I don't think my swing angle or mechanics changer when I swing hard,it just slices more.
  10. New to the forums and any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm about a 15 handicapper and I've always struggled with slicing my driver. My irons go pretty straight and I can even manage a draw sometimes, but my driver is almost always a slice. At one point, I managed to make it into a nice power fade with good distance, but these days, it's a slice and I lose tons of distance. I know my problem is coming over the top and not rotating my arms enough to square the face, but I've never been able to get rid of it. Recently, I've had a little success with trying to keep my back toward
  11. I've been Playing Golf for: On and off for about 9 years. I haven't played consistently for about 5 years and not at all for the last two. I've got the bug again and I've played 4 rounds in the last month. My current handicap index or average score is: I would estimate around 20 My typical ball flight is: To the right/occasional pull The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slice! With the occasional pull to the left. I think I struggle to "release" the club properly prior to impact and come slightly over the top. I can also see that my right elbow is fairly bent
  12. 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.

  13. 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 co
  14. Brand new to the site!! I plan on being on here and contributing alot! It seems awesome. I figured I would start with so I can see the progress as my year goes on. My slice typically starts at target and slices off to left.. HARD (I'm LH) I just dont know what im missing.... slice my driver every every every time. Other clubs its usually a "fade" but im sure its just a lesser slice Thanks in advance I've been Playing Golf for: 12 years on and off.. this year lots of volume My current handicap index or average score is: 14.5 My typical ball flight is: high fade The shot I hate or th
  15. A couple weeks ago, I was playing to my personal best ball-striking ability. These were the first few rounds of my season, and my short game was way out of whack and I still ended up shooting 88,89, etc. Since then, my short game has magically appeared and saved me multiple times, but my iron play has became very inconsistent and my tee game with driver/wood/hybrid has been absolutely horrible. I went from hitting 10/14 fairways 2 weeks ago, to hitting just 2/14 fairways yesterday at the same course. And one of those came with a 4 iron. I have been hitting huge slices instead of my normal sli
  16. 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!

  17. Since i started playing golf my shot shape has always been left to right, at first it was a major slice but gradually straightened it out a bit. However no matter what i do i cant stop coming OTT, takeaway is good and position at the top of the backswing is good but as soon as i start the downswing i come over the top everytime. A straight drive for me is still about a 10yard fade but a bad one can be a massive slice, when i do try to swing inside out on the ball it hits the hosel and goes about 20yards to the left. What can i do to correct this?
  18. Hey guys, I am 24 and have been playing golf for the greater part of 8 years. I have made a choice to play a round at least 3-4 times a month and have been going strong for 5 months now. I made a big purchase 4 months ago, buying a set of irons ranging from 4 iron-Gap Wedge. The model is Taylor Made Burner 1.0. The irons are working out great for my swing and can hit every green on Par 3 holes. I have complete confidence in these irons off the tee, but from the fairway is a different story. With the purchase of the TM irons, I bought the TM Burner 1.0 9.5 degree Driver, along wi
  19. Was wondering about some good driving range drills. Long bio... Had to quit golf for about 4 years due to chronic golf/tennis elbow and lower back problems, and also a new baby. I'm only 32... Getting back into it and Have played 2 rounds and maybe 6 range sessions in the past 4 months. I know video helps but figured I would follow the rules and try to get involved in the forums first. I'm Having a push-slice with the occasional snap hook problem. If I swing 5 times it's literally, a perfect straight-draw, slight push, Big Push-slice, push, and a "WHO HIT THAT" snap hook. Always had this
  20. Hi There! I guess this has been asked on numerous occasions but I'd like to ask what are the best drills for getting rid of an over the top swing, I attack from the outside and want to swing more from the inside. Also, what are the best training aids for this problem? Is the inside approach worthwhile-or will a box/piece of wood do the trick? Are there any good instruction web sites articles on this swing fault? what has worked for you guys? My divots point well left. I hit the occasional shank and sometimes a pull hook, or a push slice. My quality of strike depends so much o
  21. Ok, so I was going to the range today to work on my driving technique, but decided to warm up with my irons first since I usually hit them well. That is until today. For some reason on about half of my shots I would hit a low, off target (right), slice and could not figure out how to fix it. When I line up the club face is square, but after this happens and I put the club back down in front of me the face of the club has shifted and is pointing left. I am assuming this is causing the hard slice? What typically causes this type of shot? Could it be my grip is too loose and the club is
  22. I have been struggling with an over the top swing since i started golfing last year. I had been to a few instructors but the last one i saw really helped me understand it. He put my swing on video and walked me through what i was doing wrong and how to fix it (i think it helped more because i am a very visual person). I know changing a swing plane is one of the toughest things to do in golf but this is definitely frustrating. I feel like i am more comfortable with my wedges up till my 6 iron with this new swing....but when it comes to the hybrids and woods i feel like i fall inbetween my n
  23. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Before a few days ago I was extremely confident in my 8 9 and PW. I would hit my best shots with those clubs. Now... I have an EXTREME slice (apparently a push slice). Occasionally I will hit a nice ball but equally as much I will hit a slice that literally goes a few feet forward then crazy right... Don't know what I'm doing and it is extremely frustrating... I broke 100 for the first time this passed week and I know without these clubs I'll have no chance of getting to my goal of consistently sub-100.
  24. I'm fed up with this slice off the tee with my driver! I think I know why I'm doing it. When I swing my shoulders get ahead of my arms and hands (instead of coming together as a triangle/unit at impact), which is bringing my club path across the ball from the outside to the inside. The ball starts out straight along my target line (implying I suppose that the club face is "square" at impact) and then veers off to the right. I've had them go 100 yds down range and go 150 yds off to the right, so you know I'm putting some hellacious clockwise side spin on the ball! I've tried all sorts of
  25. so my natural flight path is fade/slice but I have some problems controlling the fade and it becomes a slice. Anyone know the reason why this happens and how to prevent the slice without making it a draw? Also what do you do when there are trees blocking your fade path or trouble on the right? everyone says having a fade takes out the left side of the course but what is your thoughts when trouble right or can't aim left?
