My Swing (dsc123) - Page 3

post #37 of 39
Thread Starter 

I haven't been spending as much time on the range as I should be, but I have done some work and I have played a lot of golf.  After struggling in the 86-89 range for most of this season (and even some in the 90s, ugh!), I shot 84, 85, 81, and 78 this past week.   The 78 actually happened while I was making a vlog so I should have that up soon--I'm trying to cut the length down.  Very cool to get my personal course record on video!

 

Anyway, I think strengthening my grip a bit and straightening the left leg some has really helped.  I still have mishits, and likely always will, but I've been hitting my irons much more consistently.  Playing more often has also helped me get my short game feel back.  

 

One thing that sticks out to me is that I'm crossing the line more than before.  I had It looks like I"m crossing the line a bit more, which is something I had made progress on (compare 6/22/2012 post to 5/26/14).  I should be able to fix that so long as I keep my eye on it.

A couple of thoughts on doing this vlog:

  1. Its not nearly as cumbersome as I expected.  I felt very rushed on the first hole or two but after that it went really smooth and easy.
  2. I think I played better because the camera made me focus on making good swings on every shot.  Knowing you all would see this kept me focused!
  3. I used my phone and a gorilla pod, but since I was riding I had to put the phone on the ground whenever I couldn't get a cart in the right place.  Next time I'd bring a tripod

  4. I didn't have any issues with batter power, but I did have to start trimming my videos on the course and deleted apps to avoid running out of space.  A normal 8GB card isn't quite enough, and I had cleared off all my old pictures and videos.

  5. It's really cool to have a video of my best round!

Hit some balls on a trackman today to try to figure out my shots zones.  I'll post them a bit later, but here's the summary data without the dispersion.  Its quite sobering.  I lost a lot of clubhead speed.  When I got my driver the flightscope was giving me pretty consistent 101-102.  That was probably 2 years ago.  I'll have to find the data from when I was fit for irons, too.  

 

Anyway, here it is.  I thought I had another 10 yards or so on each club, but I also know I was coming up short more often than I'd like, so this seems about right.

 

 

those aren't listed in order, but it looks like this:
