Junger Woods Swing Analysis
Well, while analyzing swings of the great pro golfers, I got the desire today to go out to the range for the first time in weeks.
I hit the ball great and here’s why.
As you can see in the address, the shoulders are parallel to my target line and my clubface is about 8 degrees open to hit a power fade. (My video camera is a little off…)
My stance is closed, which is a natural habit I get into but I should really open up more.
At 1/2 way point, My club is in perfect plane from the ball through the middle of my right shoulder socket. This is the the plane Tiger Woods follow and me three.
At top of my swing, the butt end of my club shows that I am still in plane. I also have a very good triangle going, which is good. The only bad part about this backswing is that I just finished working out before hitting balls so my muscles are too tight. Tightness is not good for golf but oh well…
On the downswing, I dip my head a little, which is my bad habit and I am also slightly inside of the plane. (probably because of my slightly closed stance)
At impact, I hit the 3 wood perfect. It makes thing really big “ping” sound.
My shoulders are about parallel to my target line.
My clubface is actually open and I am trying to hit a power fade here.
My followthrough is slightly flat. Meaning I came over the ball a little. This is partly due to my slightly closed stance.
I might block the ball 1 out of 10 balls or pull it because of the closed stance.
If I opened my stance, most of my problems would probably be solved.
Oh well, next time I get to go hit balls, I will probably have “other” problems but yes alignment is probably the most important. You have wrong alignment at the beginning of your swing and you can have all kinds of problems.
Overall, I hit the ball great today. I feel like I can try out for the PGA Tour the way I hit the balls today.
Well, even with the closed stance and my bad swing habits, I hit a lot of good shots at my target. Well, good scores are about good short game mostly anyways.
What is my long term goal?
Well, it has always been to play pro golf. Now, I make money online to feed my family and make a living. Once I can get that going faster, I might have more time to practice and eventually start playing in some mini-tour events again.
Will it happen?
Of course, my dreams never die. That’s probably why I made this blog. Once I can build up my blogging business to about $20K per month, I should be able to spend more time golfing and of course, blogging more often on here too.
Here’s a video of the 3 wood power fade I hit just perfectly about 270 yards:
Don’t blame me if my swing sucks right now, I go to the range about once a month.
