Over the past few weeks I’ve been working hard on my swing. It feels like a year ago where I’m trying to make a major change in my swing and I’m just getting as many swings in as posible to break old habits. When I execute the new-ish swing, the results are excellent. A more penetrating flight, a nice draw, better balance and just a crisp strike.
Been focusing mostly on keeping my head still and not overswinging. I’ve been moving way off the ball and thats a recipe for inconsistency. I’ve also been investigating why I’m swinging to the inside taking it back and then coming through. I finally realized that I’m not lifting my arms at all. Obviously, I don’t want to lift them too much, but I’m so flat and inside that I almost dont have a choice but to reroute over the top to get to a better position. When I’m on, I’m on. But I want more consistency.
Focusing on these points…
On the way back, raise the left arm slightly instead of keeping it pinned.
Stop backswing when shoulders stop
Grip the club a bit lower
Give the arms a bit more room
Start the swing with upper and move naturally into right side.
Start back down from a more centere position
Swing left feeling like the handle is lower thru impact and end with a balanced finish

As for this site, it's a place where I can jot ideas down and share some of the stuff I'm working on. The views are my own and some of them might not make much sense, but hey, that's part of the process. I'm also working toward being a single digit handicap golfer, so I post a lot about my golf game.
