Jeez, I thought for a moment you'd be swinging true to your username.

Yo, Sparky!

The sun is way over the yardarm. I know you've had at least your first taste of Highland dew....so how about throwing us a little bone about today?

Sorry guys, forgot my camera so no video from today. Erik has some so I'll post it when I get home.

 

Working on downswing pieces to "explode" more and extend upwards with legs, hips and chest. Need to trust my other pieces now and just forget about them and work on this now. It is nice to have a new priority though, definitely feels like solid progress.

 

Learning Aimpoint was a huge bonus, need lots of practice but it's pretty damn easy to do, just need to get faster with it. Aimpoint express is a great option but I think I liked the Mid-Point stuff better.

Yeah, Erik (@iacas) and Dave are phenomenal teachers. Just great communicators that get you to the "understanding" part very quickly. They identified my issue right away and came up with pieces I need to work on to fix it.

That's the best isn't it? And doesn't the in-person experience beat the shit out of the online experience? :-D At least, it does for me anyway. 

 

But yea, my first lesson with James, I went into it thinking "we're gonna work on this, this, and this probably." But instead, I had a new priority piece! James saw the happy look on my face and mockingly yelled out "yaaay, new material!" and I said, "hell yea!!"

 

Good times.

Yeah, yesterday was flat out awesome. My forearms are killing me, lol. Hit a shit ton of balls. Aimpoint Express and Mid-Point.

Golf Evolution studio is freaking paradise. Virtually unlimited access for $500 a year? Can't wait to get home and tel the wife we're movin' to Erie. b2_tongue.gif

I'm hoping today will be a lot of flight scope so I can make sure I leave with a good playable pattern.

That's great, EJ. Great to read. 

 

Re: your forearms.... Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I had that happen to me too after my first real clinic (S&T) in 2011. I ignored it and developed a wicked case of tendonitis that lasted a very long time... my only suggestion is to perhaps ice the forearms, even if they're only sore, for 20 minutes to just help accelerate their re-build, when you get home. Also, I'd try to ergonomically use your keyboard for a week or so, just to prevent any kind of awkward wrist flexion you may use when typing. 

 

I'm just being cautious here and helping you possibly avoid the 1 or 2% chance of this. Just be a bit cautious when you get home over the next week or so. It could potentially save you several weeks or months of annoyance.

Thanks @JetFan1983
It's all good this morning, just a good workout after weeks of not swinging. They were fine this morning and nothing in the elbows so it's all good. I'm just a *****. b2_tongue.gif

I expect he'll say hi to his family and go to bed.

 

He did lots of good work, and we now know definitively that the lack of a FO view was important. :) Fortunately it's now spring.

 

Nearly.

Sorry for the wait guys. My Mac book crashed and I'm waiting for the applebots at the Mac store to heal it.

In the meantime here's a picture of me with one of our old friends.
