6 Iron DL at the range. Let me know what you think. Just started playing golf last summer, never had a lesson before, just taught myself how to swing.


RIP Phil Collins

Your posture could be a little more relaxed and not so tight... and you can shorten your backswing.. it looks like you lean a little toward the target at the top... a view from across you would be good to tell if you're doing this.

For just having started playing golf last summer, I'd say that's damn good. Address looks great. Swing plane looks great. Spine angle looks great. I see a couple things I might work on but given the amount of time you've had with the game, I'd say you're way ahead of the curve.

A few questions:

1) How consistent is your swing?  Did you choose your best swing out of 1,000?

2) Are you spending time ON THE COURSE?

3) Is that snow?

Your swing looks fairly sound, but just a couple things buggin me about it.

Not sure, but it looks like your trying to pick up the ball rather than hit it with a descending blow. I bet you have no lag in your swing and wouldn't be surprised if your hooking it a lot.

Id say my swing is very consistent. My swing doesn't really change but like every player i do have a miss which is a pull. I have been really working on having my club face square at the top of my swing, going toe up to toe down. Thats at least the way its been explained to me. When I do pull it the club face usually closes at the top and i strike the ball with a scooping closed face. As was said above i need to incorporate more lag and try to strike the ball instead of scooping it. When i do hit the ball nicely which is most of the time it results in a slight left to right

As far as on the course, I am a college track athlete so I have barely any time in the school year to golf, its mostly a summer obsession and so I usually get out and golf 1 or 2 times a week in the summer and the practice facility 2 to 3 times a week.

No that isn't snow that is all the range balls that they haven't picked up lol

One thing that has helped me get lag is to use a forward press. I address the ball with my hands well in front of the ball and try to maintain that throughout the swing.

It's also much easier to square the clubface with a forward press.

You immediately disconnect your arms from your body going back, I'd work on more of a one piece takeaway focused more on feeling like your body is taking the club back rather than your arms, and keep the clubhead facing the ball for the first 18" or so going back. On the downswing, I'd try and feel like your back is facing the target longer, start the downswing by getting your weight onto your left side, which should help to let the club drop to the inside a little more.
