Are you after a look or just the outcome

If you saw my swing on video you'd wonder how I ever made solid contact.  I video taped it a few months ago and it absolutely is the ugliest swing you'll see.  But I've been playing over 40 years and I guess it's like Jim Furyk in a way.  No one would teach Jim to swing that way, but the man has millions in the bank off of that god awful looking swing.

 

But hey, I'm down to a 4 handicap, and most of the time the results speak for themselves.  I've honestly never taken a lesson, and I fear that if I did and someone tried to "fix" my swing I wouldn't be able to hit a golf ball the way I do now, which isn't all that bad.

 

I honestly don't care who takes videos of their swings and obsesses over it.  The only one I will look at take endless swing videos of is Paige Spiranac.  And honestly, I'm not looking at her golf swing in those videos, if you catch my drift.

I kinda felt the same way, but then decided I was “stuck” at a 5-6 cap.

I took “one” lesson where the teacher took a bunch of video from different angles. We reviewed them and he discussed various things of what he thought would help.

It was really smaller things, but the “felt” crazy at the time. “Stand more upright and get a little closer to the ball”. Felt terrible, but the ball was coming out hot!.

Long story short, inside of a year and I've dropped some strokes and am now comfortable with the slight changes, and am more confident which all goes hand in hand.

Don't be afraid of a lesson! It could be all that you need to get even lower.

The few times I've taken a video being a nice swing doesn't matter, having the club im the right positon matters most. Everyone has such different swings a nice looking swing is all in the eye of the person watching the swing.

In case you need a good laugh here are two pictures of my convulsion.... wait I mean swing.

Well, it isn't a pretty but it gets the job done.

I bet you will think I shank it every time.

Just for the record that drive went 290 with a little draw.

Give it 15 or so more years and that monster of a backswing you have will fade. Enjoy it while you can.

It looks like you're trying to wring your shirt out while still wearing it.

 

Keep crushing it, glad you have a swing that works

When I use video it's to see if what I'm working on is resulting in what I feel. I don't care what it looks like except for what my pro has told me to be able to “see”.
