Handicap Index

  1. 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 professional grade swing. My swing that you see is just where I am at the moment. It has changed numerous times over the past nine months as I search in the dark for a path. I am finally in control of my drives after taming a world-class push/slice. The club you see there is a TaylorMade R15, adjustable, stiff shaft. I have it set to one weight to prevent a fade and the other in the center - if that makes sense. I do not know if that is any longer the correct position. The 7-iron is an Adams Golf Tight Lies with a graphite shaft. I don't know the flex. I have never been fit for clubs. I really do not at all what to change about my swing. I can not look at my own videos and see anything useful. Thank you all for helping a poor soul who has perhaps foolishly decided to invest myself into this game. Sorry if the angles are not quite right.
  2. 1. Multi-Quote It grinds people's gears when you respond, minutes apart, to multiple users with multiple posts. This forum has the ability to let you respond to multiple posts inside of one post. It's called multi-quote, and it's useful, and virtually required. 2. Embed Videos This forum will embed YouTube and Vimeo videos, and we strongly encourage you to embed videos of these types. Just paste the video URL on its own line, press return, and the video will be embedded. Here's a page with more detail and a video on how to embed videos: http://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos . 3. Search Please search for an existing topic before starting a new one. Even if a thread is years old, we'd rather you bump the old thread with a new post than to start a new, virtually identical thread. This forum has been around for almost a decade - there are a lot of topics. 4. Set an Avatar You're sent a PM about this when you sign up. If you don't set one, one will be set for you when you hit between 10-25 posts, typically. 5. Add your Name More here: http://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/70980-share-your-name-folks/ .
  3. For a number of years I have been consciously avoiding viewing my golf swing on video. My swing is flawed but at 64+ years old, I am not sure I want to start a reclamation project. Playing golf is a lot of fun and if my results are not particularly good, I am okay with that. The first time I saw my swing on video dates back to the 1980’s when my wife and I went to “golf camp.” The pro had a series of stop action photos of professional golfers and he would stop my swing video at various points and we could compare my position with Tom Weiskopf or Gary Player. It was eye opening to see how flat footed I was at impact, among other flaws, and it convinced me to work harder at my game. Fast forward 30 years and part of the application process for the 2017 Newport Cup involves a V-log. There is no way to create a V-log without taping one’s swing. Of course the first hurdle was figuring out how to record all the action. I own a digital camera and have recorded various activities (grand kids zip lining, making pesto in Italy, etc…). I also own a “gorilla” tripod and have taken many photos using the timer. So how hard could it be to record my 3-hole V-Log out on the golf course? As I found out, it is not that hard … to make a terrible video. If one is searching for a better quality presentation, as in all things, practice, practice, practice. Having another person along makes the process infinitely easier. No worries about cutting off your head or your feet and the ball. Starting and stopping the action, too close or too far, are all solved with an assistant. Of course, convincing someone to tag along on a windy 37 degree day is a challenge and my first efforts were done solo. While I eventually learned how to properly frame the scene, the sound quality was all over the map. The wind plays havoc with the audio. Some segments are fine, others just sound like a wind tunnel. It is still not clear to me how to obtain decent sound quality on a windy day so I may need to wait for a windless day. In the past, I never felt the need to edit any of the videos I had recorded so that process was a mystery. Fortunately, I discovered that the editing process is fairly simple; even I could figure it out. Using my test videos, I managed to cobble together a viewable presentation. True, my swing looks like I am fighting my way out of an invisible plastic bag but I am excited about my next trip to the course. Martin Scorsese has nothing on me!
  4. In the past, I've mostly gone dormant with my golf swing instruction over the winter. This year, I want to keep up a little bit each week because I feel like I've made so much progress in the past couple months. Shame to lose that, and I'm genuinely excited to see if I can get through a major piece that I've been stuck on for too long. For those who have stuck out video lessons for a winter season, I'm curious to know your experiences: - worth it? - did you notice any progress (or perhaps less degradation) when spring rolled around? - since I won't have an indoor hitting area, doesn't it get boring just submitting indoor drills? - whatever else about your experience that comes to mind. Maybe I need to find an indoor facility. At any rate, I'll give it a shot (and talk with the instructors about it too), but just curious if anyone had strong feelings one way or the other about video lessons being useful for someone who isn't able to take advantage of a golf facility for the winter months.
