Ok started playing again two weeks ago after 15 years away from the game.

15 years ago My handicap was single figures and i considered myself of a decent standard.

Ive taken 2 videos, both down the line shots, one with the driver and one with an 8 iron.

3 drives.
drive one - went straight but to the right hand side of the fairway when i was aiming dead centre

drive two - high slice

drive three - high hook

8 iron, one of my better conenctions tbh.


Upon viewing these videos one thing that ive noticed immediately is that my feet are not parallel to target. My left foot seems to be slightly forward of my right.

Is there anything else you can see that might be causing my wayward shots especially from the tee.

Very arty vids! And an excellent wok, I bet that has taken some cultivation. Oh, and good swing IMO.

Apart from that is a way better swing than mine, it looks to me like your weight is on your heels with the driver but not with the iron. Is it the angle of the camera that makes you think your left foot is forward of your right foot?

As Creo said, nice arty video.

I wasnt sure if it was the angle as its difficult to prop up the phone on the legs of the bag lol. I'll take my boy out with me at the weekend and get him to film properly.

I'm just so inconsistant its unreal. One drive ill smack 300yards down the middle, next one ill slice wildly, then the next i'll hook it miles left.

With the irons i thin a lot of shots and mostly with a pull or hook.
