Handicap Index

  1. I've been Playing Golf for: 16 years My current handicap index or average score is: +1 My typical ball flight is: High Draw on the good days, the problem is my swing seems to change every day, literally new path and flight all the time. These videos are only a month apart each, and for some reason my swing both feels completely different everytime I play. I am a scratch golfer, who looked for more distance, and in doing so my swing became extremely inconsistent and my distance did not change much. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Short slice or hook. I've always
  2. I've been Playing Golf for: 25 years off and on. I retired from the military in 2016 and want to play more. With my new job I have time to get out more. But I have only been playing about twice a year. I want to learn more and play more. Getting discouraged with my play ends up pushing my clubs to the basement and I give up. I want to stick with it and learn to play better and enjoy the game. My current handicap index or average score is: Average Score usually high 90 to 110 My typical ball flight is: All over. New driver and relearning everything from grip to stance to swing The shot I
  3. I've been Playing Golf for: 9 months My current handicap index or average score is: 20-25 handicap My typical ball flight is: the variety pack The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: take your pick Videos: Hi all. I played golf a tiny bit in my teens and then again in my 20s, but I never got past hacking and praying. Since May I have been actively pursuing this elusive action. I am so humbled by all of it. What you can not see in these videos is the 13-year old girl behind the camera who has a profe
  4. I've started hitting some awful tee shots lately, my bad tendencies come out most with driver so i'll attach the video of my driver swing. I have been hitting it absolutely everywhere sometimes a pull slices other time a push fade. Any feedback is more than welcome. Thanks
  5. I've been Playing Golf for: A half year My current handicap index or average score is: Not enough holes to have one, but very amateur. My typical ball flight is: xxxx The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: my inconsistency on my shots. also to stop using 4-5 iron and be able to use the driver on the course As I am fairly new to golf, I am not sure how much these videos will tell you, but this is how my swing is (most of the time). It would be very helpful to get a starting point for what to begin practicing with. I am having problem with my driver as I almos
  6. I joined a golf club last June and have really got into it it’s become a borderline obsession at this stage. My poor girlfriend is now a golf widow and by the looks of it could be one for years to come. I hit a nice high fade with my driver and draw every other club in my bag. I tend to catch the ball clean off the turf never really taking a divot. My irons when they’re off can turn into a really bad draw or hook. Recently I’ve been trying to keep my knees flexed on the backswing and through the strike to keep myself more over the ball but it’s only helped slightly.
  7. Looking for any and all opinions on folks with experience having owned or used any of the currently offered swing analysis gizmos on the market: zepp, blast motion, arcos, etc. I was about to pull the trigger on the zepp, but I'm reading good things about other options out there. thanks in advance for your advice!
  8. I've been Playing Golf for 6 years My current handicap index or average score is 8 My typical ball flight is a high draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is thin toe strikes and occasional shanks I know my swing is flat but I more dislike the raising and moving away of my hands at takeaway. I sometimes struggle with getting turf after the ball and think this is because I stand up on the way down but could be wrong. Any help appreciated because I’ve never had a lesson. the first couple videos are my swing going well and the third is an example of when it
  9. I've been Playing Golf for: 20 years My current handicap index or average score is: +3 My typical ball flight is: Slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: none Hello everyone, This is my first post ever on Sand Trap. I figured I’d give it a try to get a little advice on a swing flaw. My club doesn’t shallow out early enough in the downswing to allow free upper body rotation through the swing. Notice the slight jammed look in the left shoulder right after transition. For the most part it looks like I recover from it ok but every once in a while it
  10. I am just not getting the results I want I've been Playing Golf for: 40 years My current handicap index or average score is: 12 My typical ball flight is: not consistent The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: fading the ball too much Videos: attention grab.mp4 - Google Drive
  11. Interested to see what the poll turnouts are and replys.
  12. This is my third year on the high school girls golf team and I have improved a lot since I started. Recently, my junior year season, I was hitting in the upper 40's for example, two weeks ago I shot a 48. This isn't an amazing score but, I was practicing all summer and it was really exciting for me. At practice, on the range, I was hitting every shot perfect. My hybrids, irons, and even my driver was going perfect. Then, my coach gave us a four day weekend, and I didn't pick up the club at all. I was excited to get back, but, at practice my first day back It was like I've never played before.
  13. I've been Playing Golf for: 3/4 years My current handicap index or average score is: 10-12 ish My typical ball flight is: straight (sometimes leave it out right but not a slice), sometimes a slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: hook Hi all, I've only just joined up since I've taken up golf again after 10 years or so of only playing once or twice a year (played a decent amount in my teens). I'm hooked now (no pun intended), and trying to get a bit more serious about playing at a high standard. I've never struggled for distance but there are us
  14. 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 clo
  15. I use to do this a lot but now that I kept my right foot down I can strike a ton of balls without coming steep.
  16. So I have been struggling with my swing lately. I feel like I'm sliding my hips and flipping my hands. I hit almost every shot very thin(no divot) and sky high. I used to hit my 8 iron around 160 yards, and now I am struggling to get it 145.. I also tend to fall back on my heels. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! (Video attached)
  17. My friend was telling me that improving my core strength will definitely help my swing. Right now, I kind don't do a whole lot of working on the core besides pushups. Anyone have any good tips for improving one's core strength?
  18. Recently torn intercostal muscles on left hand side. Was wondering if there's is anything wrong with my swing that has caused this or whether it's just overuse as I've been going to the range a fair bit. I'm very new to the game so have no idea really how to analyse the video. I know I could swing a bit further back on my back-swing but other than that, not much idea. Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks I've been Playing Golf for: 3 months My current handicap index or average score is: Don't have one My typical ball flight is: Slight Draw The sh
  19. Hey guys. Earlier this year I tore my calf and was in a walking boot for 6 weeks. Ever I’ve come back, I’ve had a nasty slice. Before I was working the ball both ways with ease. I have had a couple golf buddies it looks like my hands just release late. I can. Hit a draw and fade with everything but my driver. It’s getting frustrating. I’ve tried an in to out path for a draw but it just seems to be a push slice. It may be hard with no video. But does anyone have some ideas?
  20. All. I am a somewhat of a noob to golf. I played about 5 years ago and sucked, then picked it back up about 2-3 months ago. Still sucked, so had a swing evaluation at Golf Tec. This really helped my swing (along with a grip change), BUT only seemed to help my indoor play on mats and on turf driving ranges. When we play indoor golf at Swingzone on the simulators - I can hit 88 on a PGA course. I am a female, and it says I can get my driver about 160-170 in the air, and my 6 iron about 130. We came to play on an actual course for the first time since I’ve had the lesson (we’ve been
  21. 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"
  22. Hey guys, Just a quick note, over the last couple years I’ve brought my handicap down from a 16 to an 8. I was golfing really well. I have a little bit of an unorthodox swing. But I get back to a good position and hit the ball well and have good distance. I feel like overthinking and trying a have “perfect” form is ruining my game. Should I just stop overthinrking and play how I’m comfortable?
  23. Hello guys, I'm starting to play golf again after six years of not swinging a club. Lessons with a pro is something I will be looking into but, in the meantime, wondered if I could ask for some thoughts from this forum? Below is an embedded video of my swing. It's the first time I've been to the driving range in a very long time... I think the basics are still there but I've lost all knowledge of how to self-analyse so any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm 29, around 90kg and used to play off 12 (although, as I said, that was some years ago now). I hit around 250 y
  24. Sorry for the long intro/explanations... I've been Playing Golf for: 40+ yrs…not continuously unfortunately…had a cut-off 9 iron put in my hand at 6...played junior golf then on the high school team…picked it up again mid 80’s to mid 90’s (best index was about 4.5) then sporadically up to about 5 yrs back…just picked it back up seriously a few months back and have played maybe 8 times but doing lots-o-practicing…put a practice net in the garage (didn’t know balls go through wall board so easily) and taking lots of video to see what is, or isn't, happening My current handicap index or avera
  25. A little about me, or at least the last year. I used to shoot mid to low 90's, showing improvement. Last year, I don't know what happened, but I lost it all. I lost 20-30 yards on all my clubs. My 8 Iron used to be my money club. I could hit it dead straight 150 yards on a stock shot. When I lost my swing, I struggled to get it 130 most of the time. My other irons were never as accurate, but I knew my distances, and saw the loss on those as well. My driver was an average of 240, now I struggle to get it 210-220 (this is assuming no wind). The only thing that remained consistent an
