Once you see on the vid that the heel stays down, increment the speed just a bit more, rinse and repeat. Screw the funny looks you might get.

 

Yes, @bplewis24 needs a LOT more of one of the "S"s of the 5… the "slow" one.

This should help. Pay good attention to the grip… and the pace of the shots, and the end part about turning the foot out a LOT for some practice drills.

Only DTL video tonight.  Every stall at the range was full.  Switched up the grip but you probably can't tell much from this angle.  What about the practice movements and tempo; any better?

Only because I've hit hundreds of those same drills/shots, I would say maybe SLOW down...alot..lol seriously going slower helps to sync up, and make better contact. At least try it for a few times and see if it doesn't work out for you. I only say this as I'm sure all of us would like to see you improve, and shoot some Low scores...

It's better, better sync with the arms and pivot and it's slower. I would say that is the fastest you should do these swings. 

 

Erik and I will talk about it but it looks like the left knee is still straightening way too soon, getting the club head to tip out at A6. Notice how much flex Erik has in his left knee at A6, try to copy this in a mirror. Maybe watch the video again as well.

Tonight I'll work on slowing down a bit more and keeping the knee flex longer.
post #169 of 224
Agreed on the left knee. You might feel like it never straightens just so it stops happening so early and quickly.

Sorry for OT, but what is this thing?

You are not the only one.  I was wondering what it was as well.

It shoots a golf ball (an old Pinnacle, not one of those cushy ProV1s) at your nads if you don't make a good swing.

It's not a big deal. Just wear a cup.

I don't know Erik. Projectiles heading towards my groin are never welcomed. :bugout:

 

I am waiting for someone to develop a corrective device like a dog shock collar that zaps you when you violate one of the 5SKs. Talk about rapid improvement. Call it the Medicus Extreme. :offtopic:

 

I'm guessing a it's a club cleaner to get the green junk off the bottom of your club.

I can make something like that! Would you like a Key 1 shock collar? :smartass:

 

If there's any significant acceleration in any of three axis on the collar, Zappo!

Yep. Not enough weight on the front foot. Buzzz! Left wrist breaks down. Big Buzz!!!

 

Sorry for the highjack @bplewis24. This device could really help us all though. B-)

That's the automatic ball retriever/tee thing. So you normally put the balls underneath the area where the basket is, and after each strike, a new ball pops up. One of the buttons on there adjusts the tee height.
