Hey WRX'ers!

Stock 8 iron shot here as I sometimes struggle with an "overdraw".  I start messing with my alignment to compensate....bad.  

More turn and hold the club off at the bottom?  I feel like my impact can be a bit flippy.  

Let me know.

That’s a good swing, to hit a cut.

Having to hold it off is usually a red flag.

Your arms and hands lift in backswing and drop in downswing.

That’s a recipe fo getting club open and path too right which will need to be flipped to avoid a  block.

Either eliminate the drop in transition and turn and move path hard left and hit a cut....or you need to turn more in the backswing and get the hands deeper.

Understood.  I've struggled with the lift and agree, I need to get deeper in the turn.  

I am trying to obtain/work on a more CP release than CF release, and obviously my swing is more CF release currently.  

Thanks, Monte.

You're very bent over at address.  Have ever tried a more upright posture?  Could help with some of things you're trying to change.

Could definitely require longer length clubs

Interested in thoughts on a more upright swing while trying to obtain CP release.

Look at the address spine angles of some of your favorite player's swings.  I think you'll find most are not as bent over as you are

You seem obsessed with "release", especially since you said it 3 times in 1 sentence.  Just follow what Monte gave you.

No really understanding the purpose of this post...?  I used "release" 3 time in one sentence to describe an action in the golf swing.  

Thanks!

This is meant as trying to help you become a better golfer and not to be an a-hole.

Eliminate CP and CF from your vocabulary.

exactly what Monte said......just focus on being a better player and having a better swing rather than trying to fit a defined pattern, release, etc....Sometimes it's hard to do but you will be better for it.

I have every intention of being a better player and obtaining a better swing.  Maybe my approach was wrong but I think the majority of shot shape is in fact a defined pattern.  I'd love to play a cut all day every day rather than an overdraw that runs on forever.  Appreciate the feedback from you both.  I'll give "turn and path hard left" a run.

I used to have a similar swing. I got my Hands higher and less inside on the BW to encourage swinging more “left” to hit a cut. When I hold off the release a little its a fade, when I released fully it will be a baby draw.

Hips are pretty closed at impact, this happens to me.  Maybe not the issue, but almost always the cause of anything left for me. The harder I swing the worse it is.

I would add a little more knee bend to your swing, it will help with the bent over posture and engage the leg muscles better to move through the ball. It's easier to move hips from athletic position vs straight-leg.

That makes perfect sense, thank you!
