Does this look about right?

Don't know, but I'm quite envious of that red line.  Is this a full speed swing?

Yes. Swing video is here http://thesandtrap.com/t/54175/my-swing-ernest-jones/414#post_947056 

 

Screen capture from the second swing but my A5 is starting to look like this pretty consistently. :dance:

 

It's nice to have a single digit covet anything from my swing! There's still hope for me!

There's always hope, my friend. That's something I constantly have to remind myself :-) 

 

 

That's the beauty of golf... they can't get that from you. Haven't you ever felt that way about golf? :-P

Well, I try to stay in monkey mode is much as possible, so it means all I'm really looking at in your swing is what I'm working on.  So all I see is a pitchier and lower right elbow, and a shallower angle on the way down with the shaft pointing outside the ball.  So, yeah, it is in my nature I suppose ...

Respect for using no smilies or emoticons in this post. Makes it that much creepier. :-D

 

Actually, I bet you Dr.Lector would be a great golf instructor if given the opportunity.... can't imagine what he'd say my priority piece was.

I'm glad you noticed this.  I occasionally do that on purpose because I want to keep people guessing.  "I think he's being sarcastic/silly/funny/whatever ... but he didn't confirm it with a smiley to make it easy for me, so I'm not so sure." :beer:

Hmmm, that's a good question.  I don't know what he'd say either.  I think I know what Buffalo Bill would say though:

 

"It places the weight forward at impact."

 

"OK, mister, just show me how"

 

"It places the weight forward at impact."

 

"OK, don't I need a club to practice with?"

 

"PUT THE ****ING WEIIIIIIIIGHT FORWARD AT IIIIIIIIIIMPACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

LOL!!!! :-D 

 

Maybe Erik and Mike should try that sometime.

 

"It places the weight forward at impact, or else it gets the hose again."

Ya, pretty creepy stuff to plop down in a brother's swing thread.

I think you should drive down some Saturday morning, work with Dave and I, spend the night across the street, work with us a little bit in the morning, and drive back on a Sunday.

 

I think some time in March should be good.

 

You will benefit from a little hands on experience. The process will actually be pretty quick since you already have a good background.

It's official! :dance:

 

Heading down to Erie next month for in-person lessons with @iacas and @david_wedzik

 

Equal parts Super-Stoked and nervous as hell! :~(

 

Lotta tough love comin' my way, hope I don't get a concussion...

 

I think this will really get me over the hump, it's obviously not going to transform me into a single digit player over night but I think it will really accelerate my process. I really like Evolvr but I think it's clear that I need some hands on as I have NEVER taken a golf lesson in my life aside from Evolvr vids. I also think I'll get a LOT more out of Evolvr once David and Erik have had a chance to straighten me out a bit.

 

Ernest is a Happy Camper.

:beer:

 

Now it's off to work to pretend I give a shit!:-P

Awesome EJ!  I am super excited for you, and I agree that you need some hands(literally, they will probably be grabbing your ass and stuff ;-)) teaching.  In all seriousness, there is nobody around here that I want to see make the improvements more than you.  You have been working so hard for it and they will do a great job of helping you find the feels needed to improve.  Don't be nervous, they are two of the greatest guys to work with.  Erik is a big teddy bear in real life, give him hugs. lots of hugs. :) Wish I could make the trip out there every year.  Have fun!

Oh, that reminds me, should I bring my camera or just something to dump video files on?
