40 feet or so downhill.

Okay, but in what capacity? It's kind of a mess, IMO. So how would you format it to post it to the site?

 

Just the summary and recommendations for people to look at things by averaging their scores and looking at the SV ratings for each? If that, I may do it later tonight.

I thought it might be close as is, with maybe an introductory thing about "how to put it all together," or "putting your reading into action," or a "final exam." Challenge your readers to track the values that you did for a round or two or seven, and do the averages themselves.

When I read your post, it really helped me see a practical way to put the framework you've written about into practice. Just a great example. Seems simple now, but I hadn't thought to do that (not that I've played much lately).

Sorry, may have been mentioned before. Does it take into slope readings? Example: par 3 that is about 205 uphill. I hit the green which should have been a 200 yard shot but it says 185.

No, probably not. But you'd have to ask them…

 

Your shot probably went 185 yards "horizontally."

This post and a PDF for everyone to print is now on the LSW site.

Shot 58 (15 holes, Kahkwa) today.

 

Didn't hit any good shots, really. Good short game shots. Made a nice putt on a par three.

 

Still working on the four-stage swing:

  1. Go to 2 by folding right elbow.
  2. TURN from there.
  3. Down with clubhead inside, hands traveling out.
  4. Finish (still feeling as if swinging out).

 

Just can't overdo the folding to 2 because then i get narrow. 2 to 4 has to feel wide and JUST a turn.

Constantly getting a little bit better. Left arm in a bit more than I'd like but this is the pump, and I do that by letting the right elbow go a bit too far around since I pump with just my arms (I don't turn my body when I pump from 6).

I started at the first video in the thread of this Iacas swing. Looks like a good abbreviated, compact swing. Consistent looking. The unfinished follow through reminds me of Roy Mcavoy.

Thanks.

 

I'll disagree that it's unfinished, though. :-)

Really does look good. I like the swing plane and consistency I can tell it produces. I was just mentioning the follow through part looking unfinished like Tin Cup. Thought maybe you were hitting a punch stinger here to keep it down in the winds of west Texas like Roy. I love that movie.

That swing is nearly four years old and I was doing a drill. This thread has 23 pages. :)

Nice idea for a training aid. We have those foam rollers at my gym.  I will use it next time.

I hit on a little something in this swing that is going to be good… Just a little sequencing stuff in transition that I can focus on.

post #412 of 423

I wish I had my own indoor practice facility :whistle: 

 

Looking good!

To the point of changing the darn picture…

 

 

I was basically trying to hit the ball with the back of the club and/or the back of the hosel. So, the backswing and some other things are a bit different than normal. But… look at the changes in transition and at 6.

Now that is something I haven't seen before. I see the plane shallows out quite a bit in downswing almost Hogan like. A good exercise for fixing a pull I'm guessing, but doesn't it sting hitting a ball this way? Or are you using foam balls?
