So I just signed up for these since the instructor I work with is heading off to a better life the end of this month.  My question is when I got my video back I was told I need to get my left arm out and down more but, not sure how to do this.  It would be nice in the lessons if they could do a video demonstration of what they would like to see or a way to communicate back and forth.  Not sure if I need to shift my arm down or out or both and how to do it without causing harm.

I've been using Evolvr since February / March of this year.  I've made some nice progress working with the Evolvr team.  My recommendation is to send a note back to your instructor and request additional information.

Again, going off of my own personal experience working with the Evolvr staff has been solid.  The responses that I've received from their team (mvmac) has always had my swing compared to a professional - or ideal swing to memic from another player.  And then pulled in additional video links with drills that can help with hitting the proper geometry / feels.

Regarding the left arm... Are they talking about A1 to A4 (Backswing) or A5 to A7 (Downswing to Impact), or A7 to A10 (Impact to Finish)? If you can comment on that... I'm sure that there are plenty of users here on the site that can help point you into the right direction (using your swing thread) on how to get the left arm in a better position.

a5 to a7 i've always had the issue where my left arm stays glued to my chest then I have to tilt my shoulders to get down to the ball.  Something I've done for ever.  I remember someone posting a video on here about a pump drill but, couldn't find it.

We'll have an answer for you shortly.

This site isn't evolvr, even though Mike and I (and Dave sometimes) post here. It'll be faster if you write to evolvr@thegolfevolution.com .

I think you are talking about this video:

I made a thread somewhere about "getting your hands down too quickly" and too slowly (or something like that) that I'll try to find. I may edit this after I see your evolvr lesson though. I don't want to give you the wrong stuff.

Hi Poser,

You're doing great and are on the right track.  Sorry if there was any confusion with the analysis but I'll just reiterate what I said in the video.  Left shoulder stays low longer from A4 down, back stays towards the target longer while your arms move down so the hands are just in front of the right thigh at A6.  Mikes video above is exactly what you need to practice regarding the "pump drill".  And try that other drill I gave you with the glove under the left arm.

Great video.  Thanks for posting.  I think I've seen the guy in this video before?  Not sure where, though?

I also wrote the article on page 65, that's why I talk so much on here about thrusting the hips and extensor action

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
