My Swing, After 8 Months Off.


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to hit some golf balls today, it’s been a while. Before today I hadn’t struck a ball since last September when golf season ended. Other than struggling with face angle a bit, it was nice to finally get to hit some balls again. :smile:

 

Now for the big question, what am I doing wrong and what can I work on? Thanks in advance for and help or advice, it’s much appreciated. Have a great day everyone. :smile:

I got nothin, man! That's a great looking swing. Great setup, takeaway down the line, you keep your spine angle and club on plane, position at the top is great (some might say you go too far past parallel - but I do the exact same thing ... so they're just jealous of our superior flexibility ;)), arms stay close to your body coming down and you move right into position as good as anyone, hips clear, swinging through and down the line ...

 

Hard to tell for sure but MAYBE your grip is a little on the strong side ... so if you find yourself losing it to the left ... er, your right, think about weakening it a bit. That's always been my miss so my grip's definitely gotten weaker over the years.

 

Otherwise, I really wouldn't change a thing. Is there something in particular you're wanting to accomplish?

Well, that wasn’t the analysis I was expecting to hear at all lol, thanks man. My main goal is just to keep improving every year, I normally post my swing in here every spring for a tuneup after a winter of Sim Golf. So I just kind of assumed that after such a large layoff this year that I’d have even more work to do than normal, I hadn’t even imagined a time where that wouldn’t be necessary lol. :smile:

 

Ball flights today were mostly high and straight, the ones that curved were drawing for the most part with the odd duck hook mixed in. I had to force a cut/fade, which is kind of strange for me as it’s typically my go to shot. I’ll play with my grip next time out, I did have a few balls start to the right on me today and they didn’t come back lol, thanks for the tip and the analysis, it’s much appreciated man. :smile:

First thing I noticed it is looks like your grip is strong. Both clubs are way open on the downswing in relation to your spine angle much less so on the backswing. You have a very steep downswing which looks like is causing you to come out to in.

 

Shallowing out the club and keeping the face in line with spine angle are things my instructor has been working with me on. That is why I spotted these things right away. Otherwise, to me things look good. Maybe shorten the backswing a bit to help you maintain control.
