Cuz this is too much:

So a little less sag through the entire pitch, rather than just straightening a bit in the follow through?

Both.

Better Key#1 at full speed. Helps me create more "lag" and hit it in the center of the face.

Your a beast. That looks so smooth.

That's a nice looking swing. Thanks for posting!

Powerful and balanced.  Seriously nice! :beer:

Continuing to work on a slower loading of the right wrist bend and good turning rates.

 

Really like how this piece is changing. Earlier swings would go from 70-80 degrees at A3 to 90 at A5. Obviously doing the opposite here.

Video above is the last swing I recorded in two weeks, seriously. Very rare for me but really haven't felt the need to see it because I've been hitting it well and I'm getting ready for a tournament next week. Playing with my dad, it's an alternate shot tournament. Practice round Wednesday, qualifying round is Thursday and then you play matches against other teams. So hopefully I won't be back home until Sunday ;-) 

 

Played in the TST SoCal outing last week and got some of the "rust" off. Some good swings, some crappy ones. Most of the bad swings were due to second guessing myself. Putting was improved from the last SoCal event I played in, it would have been impossible to putt any worse ;-) Played Monday in a TaylorMade media day and hit it better than the day before, more comfortable over the ball and speed control was really good on the greens.

 

This week I mostly worked on hitting shots on the range like I would on the course. Going through my entire routine before every shot, picturing holes, certain shots and trying to put myself in pressure situations. So I might pick a green on the range and get very specific with my start lines, I don't curve it much so my misses tend to be start line issues. I'll hit 4-5 shots at a green where I'll imagine water is on one side, or a bunker, final target is the center of the green, or maybe left center if the water is right. Point is, it's helps me build confidence and it's something I've done since high school. Played nine last night and my start lines were really good. Playing 18 with my Dad and son tomorrow.

 

I've also shortened my practice waggle, just taking it to A2 now instead of A4.

Good stuff, Mike.

 

And good luck in the tournament with your dad! :beer:

 

Cool to read your preparation routine. 

post #227 of 253

It's nice to hear you are actually playing. 

 

Hopefully the scores you are laying down are matching the excellent improvements you've made in your swing.

post #228 of 253

Looks awesome!  Wish I was even capable of taking that short a back swing...

Dad and I played really solid in the practice round today, played alternate shot. Entire course is only on 90 acres. Love the course, old school look, small greens, tight off the tee, not very long (6600), sets up good for us. Got to play with some buddies from NorCal, so that was fun. Qualifying round is tomorrow.

Thanks, posted a couple pics here http://instagram.com/mvmac01.

 

They have a strict cell phone rule so I won't be taking too many pics ;-)

 

North County San Diego is surrounded by fires, all the schools are closed and I left my family to go play golf, think I'm using up all my husband points this week :scared:

We qualified for match play! Dad was nervous at the start of the round but he ended well, we made a nice birdie on 18. Alternate shot is tough, he thought the greens were faster than they are and left me with a lot of 3-4 footers but he didn't miss a fairway all day. 

 

Hit it my driver and mid irons awesome. From 100-120 yards I was horrible. Hopefully can knock a few close tomorrow.
