Hi everyone.
I'm Dylan. I'm very new to golf, a beginner I must say...
Just started to swing at driving range since last weekend.
Anyway, hope to chat with you all about golf here.

Haha... fOody, i like this word, banana...

of all my swing,
5% - straight (lucky hit)
10% - air swing (faint...)
20% - club above ball
20% - hitting mat before ball
45% - right curve ball (banana ball)

I'm now only practice with iron #7

Duval_S, if I got the chance & right time, will go to you all one day.

So, how you straighten your swing? Get a coach?

Most welcome shiokshiok, myself being a victim of slicing my driver big time have found this rather useful.

Apart from maintaining the spine angle, inside to out swing path and full release when finishing are other aspects to a driver swing that you might want to look into.

Have fun swinging Swing
