Handicap Index

Found 1 result

  1. I've been Playing Golf for: 22 years My current handicap index or average score is: 17.7 HCP, scoring high 80s/low 90s My typical ball flight is: Variable. I have been taking lessons for about a year now, and my ball flight has changed over the course of the year, but the current description below is most accurate. Irons/hybrid/fairway wood: Usually high ball flight with a slight draw or fade (not intentional shot shaping), sometimes slightly fat or thin, and occasional push out to the right. Lately the pushes have been with a draw mostly due to toe strikes. Driver: Push out the the right with fade, or sometimes slice. I don't consistently make center face contact with the driver, but most strikes are middle to high on the face (top to bottom), and within about a half ball of the center of the face (left to right). The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Right now, toe strikes. Frankly, toe strikes are much more playable than my previous heel strike pull slices and shanks that inspired me to start lessons. On a good day, my strikes range from center of the club face to about a half ball toward the toe. Okay days are half ball from the center of the face to the edge of the grooves. Bad days are from the edge of the grooves and out, which starts to get in the almost as unplayable as a shank territory for me. The toe strikes are remarkably consistent, as shown in the attached photo. In my last lesson, my instructor pointed out during video evaluation that I do a slight shoulder hunch striking the ball which moves the club head away from the ball. She also told me to work on getting better hip rotation in my downswing which in theory should create more room for my arms to extend, and once I get comfortable with it, should help move strikes more toward the center of the face. I am looking for any tips or insights that can help with this. As this is my first swing video, any tips on recording more useful footage are welcomed. I can't get a face on shot right now, but I am planning to move some stuff around in my yard so I can get a camera in front of the mat.
