  1. You simply put a head cover or an extra ball just outside and slightly of the ball you intend to hit.  You may hit both balls or the cover a few times, but your brain seems to subconsciously correct this pretty quickly.  Although, I'm sure that it is possible to do this drill successfully with an out to in path it is very effective for getting my swing path to where it needs to be.
  2. Spent 10 minutes today working on the toss drill with a ball.

    I believe if you hit the LB or L1 button it will switch the view to focus on the blue line.
  9. My Swing (travisv)

    I've been struggling with the driver more than my irons lately, so I sent these swings in to Stephan for my latest evolvr submission.  I've been hitting the driver so far off the heel it's nearly a shank, causing the club to twist on impact.  Stephan wanted me to wants fixing this to be my priority, and he suggested I set a club cover outside the ball as an aid.  This drill is quite effective for me and produced good results today.  He also wants me to work on keeping my left hip back as a start the downswing.  Currently it moves towards the ball, and I end up standing up during the swing.  Lastly, I'm continuing to work on getting my hips pointing towards the target after impact.  A lot of things that I have previously worked on with my iron swing and have had success with, but when I take out the driver things change.  Below is my range session today after working on these things.

    Are you may have reason to worry.
  12. My Swing (travisv)

    I'm continuing to work on laying the shaft down during the downswing and preventing my right knee from kicking out.  I'm quite happy with the progress that I have made thus far.  Swings are at half speed with an abbreviated follow through per Stephan's suggestion.
  13. Hit a bucket at the range today and worked on laying the shaft down on the downswing.
  14. Hit a bucket at the range today, focused on squeezing my thighs together on the follow through.
