***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

My swing plane and wrist supination?

Anyone have an idea whether my swing plane is shallow enough?

ive been working on not being steep. My path is usually 2-4 degrees right but not sure if it’s because I’m lifting my handle.

On the below videos I’m trying to exaggerate bowing my left wrist at the top

my miss is a push fade 20-30 yards

or a pull hook.

Im trying to draw the ball but I get mostly a weak baby fade unintentionally. My misses come close to base of club - so inside the sweet spot

faceon:

dtl


both 6 irons.

handicap is at a 12

stopped playing for a year and a half and just started again last month


any thoughts?

    You're under the plane in backswing and over the plane in downswing. You kinda throw your arms behind you, causing the gravity of the club make the club go over the top. This results in an out-to-in club path which generates weak fades/slices. Hits toward the heel are mostly caused by out-to-in swing path.You should focus on creating a one-piece takeaway that removes compensations later in the swing.

    Yeah, as Konsta said, you're back swing is so shallow that you don't have any choice but to come OTT on the downswing. Try getting your hands a little higher on takeaway so you can drop them into the slot & create a better path.

    I had the same problem when I started out, the feeling that helped me was getting the shaft to stand straight up during the backswing.

    Any videos on drills I can do. Having a hard time feeling what my backswing should feel like.

    then I start thinking about it during rounds and I’m spraying all over the place

    This is the video that made sense to me and got me going: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNcxm5AuymE

    I was doing a lot of slow motion swings in a mirror to get it right and check quickly. Also I took some video down the line of full swings with those feels and checked to see if I was actually coming back upright and shallowing out.

    It looks like your backswing plane is still flatter than the downswing.

    The easiest way to check is to draw a line on the shaft when your arm is parallel to the ground. Ideally the backswing line should intersect the ground somewhere between the ball and your feet. The downswing line should cross the backswing line.

    Try taking the club away outside the target line.

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I urge you to investigate the Arm Swing Illusion thread. I've offered loads of different pieces of advice on how to get on plane over the years, but nothing makes it easier to understand than the ASI.

    Took her golfing once. Now she expects the ball to fly anytime I’m at the net. So she comes to check.

    great way of working on distractions during your backswing
