I ventured out to the range for the second consecutive Saturday to take some video and check on some of the changes Brian has had me working on.
Picture on the right is April 2013; on the left is this past Saturday.
The changes Brian had me working on:
1. 1. Stand taller to the ball. (yellow lines)
2. 2. Get my chin down and get the ball focused between my eyes (green line)
3. 3. Get my hands higher. Club pointed above my beltline. (red line)
4. 4. Pelvic Tilt. Better, but could use a little more.
Okay so I am on the right track there. Now for the not so good…
When I went to the range last Saturday and after looking at the video I almost thru up. One of my personal pet peeves for my backswing is crossing the line at the top and letting the right elbow get away from my rib cage. It may not be a priority piece for me but I am making it one because I can’t stand to look at it any longer.
It also affects my misses. Way too many to the left as opposed to when I’m not doing it.
So all week long I've been working on keeping a towel under the right arm pit. I have done this before but apparently not enough. The swing on the left feels short and like my right elbow is against my rib cage.
I will continue working on this until it becomes something I don't have to think about.
My goal is to get to this eventually...
If anyone has had the same issue and has any other thoughts or drills I would love to hear them.
