evolvr lessons

57 posts in this topic

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

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
