Default Golf swing analyzer....

Is there a golf swing analyzer app that anyone has used? I haven't played golf in 12-15 years and am picking it back up. I was a 10 handicap before I quit. I'd like to try an app before I go take a lesson or two. I've been hitting some balls lately trying to get that muscle memory back, but I want to get the correct muscle memory started first.

I’m not sure about an app, but there are tons of YouTube videos that can help.

If you were a ten handicap you will pick it back up just fine. You already know the proper mechanics, just have to hone it in. If you have a go pro or something similar you could set it up behind you on a stand a film a range session. Then go back and watch it in slow motion. If you are taking lessons you could show the instructor the video at the first lesson and get their opinion on where to tweak.

You don’t need an app if you were a 10 when u quit. Take it back inside out, keep your weight back on the downswing, hands in front of the ball, elbows tight don’t let ‘em flop, and most important- keep your head down. My nickels worth.

Most of the smart phones have great cameras you can go back and watch in slowmo. Film from both angles. Check for flat wrist and casting. The 2 culprits for most.

I see some improvement every time I go practice, but the consistency is killing me. It's kinda funny actually. I used to play a fade, that was my shot. Now, I'm hitting straight or draws for about 10 shots then the wheels fall off. Fat, thin, slice and hooks start showing up. I'm not near as flexible as I used to be either. LOL!

Youtube is a great source. You can get just about everything you need there plus some range sessions. My advice though is to find one or two people on youtube and focus on them (Rick Shiels or Danny Maude are two good and popular ones). I learned the lesson the hard way - I was watching a handful of different Youtube golf coaches and you can start getting into trouble when different coaches say conflicting things and get you all mixed up.

You most likely are swaying. Think about your right hip pocket going back on your initial takeaway and then your left hip pocket going back on the downswing. You have to eliminate sliding or swaying

I was never a ten!
But I agree that you will be fine.
Just rotate and swing smooth.
I can tell you the new clubs and technology
Have changed a lot in 15 years.

Garmin Approach R10 is a pretty good launch monitor.

If you are swaying and you are a RH swinger, place a rubber door stop under your right foot. That will prevent you from swaying and help to develop muscle memory.

Keep your head still,don't sway,loose grip, square shoulders,square hips, square feet, slightly bent knees,no slouching over,ball 2 inches inside front foot, then you can turn on the machine and swing!
Just messin with ya lol.

Video yourself with your phone and self evaluate YOUR swing. I personally think monitors help you most by controlling your distance. Dialing in your yardages with swing length with your scoring clubs, 9-wedges are critical.

Basics to get right!
#1. Grip, see 2-3 knuckles and proper pressure.
#2. Alignment feet-hips- shoulders all at target.
#3. Maintain your posture throughout the entire swing.
#4. Take the club back down the line until it naturally comes off your line.
#5. Control your swing length. Shorter the better.
#6. Deliver club face back to square at impact.
#s7.-100 Practice putting for distance control not line. Speed determines the line.
Then Chip/pitch/bump and run for distance. Then when your tired of that change it up.. Bump and run/chip/pitch. Again speed determines your line.

Most importantly...Have fun!

If you have an apple watch there is an app called golf swing analyzer ++ that helped me out a lot, in conjunction with slow mo video

More left hand. I took lessons from an old man back years ago. I swear all he did was walk up and down the range saying "more left hand". Of course this is for right handed golfers. I now play about 1-2X a year so i forgot all of my bad and good habits.

Narrow your stance. slow down your back swiung, pause at the top, then power through. Remember to rotate and not slide your hips.
With age comes less flexibility, hence narrow the stance slightly and maybe flare your feet out a little to help rotate

I'm working on getting a lesson tomorrow afternoon from the local club pro at Riverhill GC. I looked over the videos my wife took last weekend and I'm gonna let the pro straighten me out.
