My Swing (mvmac) - Page 3
Been awhile since I posted here, still a work in progress Feeling a little more right wrist bend at the start of the back swing(from P1 to P2) and just keep my pressure points on P4. From P4-6 press into the ground with my left foot as the arms lower( release PA #1 and 4) and then make sure to keep the rotation up as I continue to go forward. Right leg stays bent for too long and still flexes towards the ball too much, but better.
Yes that will always be the feel for me and that's what is getting that left arm better at P5-P6
hehe good one. Yeah, handicap really hasn't changed since April, don't play enough to make it change, I'm just a range rat now lol
But definitely hitting it better than I was in April, I just remember struggling that month with ball striking and we can see from the pics I had some issues. I also feel my swing needs less maintenance now and I have a better idea what I need to do to hit it good.
Thanks, I would LOVE to have some video of myself in college or even high school. Up until my junior year I swung past parallel with a 7 iron. Funny thing is my handicap was lower! But I was playing everyday, compensated well, curved it one way (pull cut) and had a decent short game. But no doubt, I hit it better now than I ever did.
Working on some good stuff. Some old feels mixed in with some new ones. On the backswing I tend to get the clubhead a little in and low from A1-2. Some guys can get away from a not so perfect A2 but in my case it can start a chain reaction of compensations. On the downswing I've been getting too much rotation and the club has been swinging too far to the left. Doesn't match up with what shot I'm trying to hit, a high push draw.
Making sure my hips and shoulders are aimed slightly to the right. Butt of the club pointing at my navel on the dtl view. Tilting my head 5* to the right to line up my eye line with my body alignments.
Hinging the left wrist much more so the clubhead ascends up the plane line, not under it. Need to have zero right wrist bend as I push the grip end down as I load PA#2 (left wrist hinge)
As I continue the backswing, not allowing PA#3 to load (rotation of left forearm) so the shaft doesn't get shallow. Want the lfeshy part of my left elbow to point towards the sky. It it gets too shallow, I'll have some run on at A4. Arms keep loading while the pivot stops.
From A4-A5 keeping the hip and shoulder slant feeling steep to keep my inclination to the ground. Don't want my chest to raise. Right leg feels straight to do this.
If the shoulders and hips can stay steep, then I can rip PA#4 down and feel like I hammer the ball down in the ground and keep the right forearm tracing baseline. Good feel or visual if that the left arm is chopping off my nipple to hammer the ball.
Blue line represents address knee flexion, so my knee is kicking out too much towards the ball. This hinders my ability to fire the arms down because I lose my inclination.
Would like to see the right forearm tracing baseline, this is where I tend to miss it off the toe. Good pic on the right though, the flying wedge stayed in longer than some other recent swings and like how the right foot is banking.
