And maybe he'll type out the name of that cheese he talked about so I can find it.

Puotine???

 

Doesnt Mcdonalds actually serve that in Canada?

 

When I used to go to Canada fishing, we would order that all the time.

McDonald's poutine is like McDonald's burgers, barely worth eating.

Thanks. I wanted to search for "fruitlandia" and I guess that was closer.

 

Anyway… now that I got my question answered, this should be back to the topic. :D :D :D

Not familiar with it. Similar to a gruyere?

Haven't had an opportunity to practice anything that I learned in Erie but I'm going to play on a sim tonight so we'll see...I did hit a shit ton of balls in Erie so it's a least a little bit ingrained. 

 

Plan is to just close the face a touch at address and trust the explosion piece. If I'm still hitting blocks that won't draw, I'll aim left and play the block all night.

Good and bad last night. Beat the next best player in my threesome by 19 strokes but I still shot a 106, lol. Harbour Town on the sim so somewhere around 6600 yrds, with a rating around 73/141. A real monster compared to my usual goat tracks.

 

Pros:

  • Kept my driver in play for the most part
  • lots more distance on my irons when hit well
  • Positive swing path all night, hitting pushes but very manageable, a handful drew back.

Cons:

  • putting is crap on a sim, dropped too many strokes due to that
  • too many fat irons, need more practice time, I'd rather hit 'em thin but I was on the fat side... 
  • too much drinking going on which just lead to more mishits as the night wore on
  • 4 water balls (2 on the same hole :doh:) and 1 OB
  • similar to the putting, short game shots are hard to gauge as you can't get a real feel for the green.

 

All in all, I saw some great improvement that will eventually show-up on the score card. In fact, pretty sure I played well enough to card a decent score on a less challenging course with real putting. C'mon summer!

Yep, and then it'll be time to get the shovel back out...

Remember, Jason, it's not quite your piece really. Your piece is more about doing this very early in the downswing, so that your left shoulder starts to rise up sooner, and stop the "adding flex" which steepens the shoulders from 4 to 5. You get to rip that shoulder up and left FAST, almost right from 4.

Yeah, not exactly my piece but when I get my piece right I definitely feel my legs straighter and my butt more tucked.

Reviewing the video with the hula hoop often just to remind myself how FAST and immediate this move needs to be. I'm getting really antsy for the ranges to open so I can GET TO WORK on this stuff.

I've been practicing this move with a 2L bottle of Coke in my hands instead of a golf club. Easy to get the feel this way. If I don't get that shoulder up and left I can feel the energy of the swing going low and weak right. If I want to launch that pop bottle far down range I need to really explode up and around. I think this is a good way for me to drill this move indoors while I watch the snow fall. I might even post some video of this for fun.

 

Basically the same idea as the old "boulder toss" from Dave.

Just got back from the first range session of the season. Handful of pull-hooks to start. Just focused on my piece from Erie. Reverted to my typical push after that. Kept on focusing on my piece and ignored the results. Last two thirds of the bucket were baby draws right on target. Miss is still a push but it's getting there. Lots more height, distance was hard to gauge due to zero roll out. Range is half snow and half muck.

Very nice, must be nice being able to get back out there!

Did you only use one club the whole time?

Did you do any taping?

I think if I remember correctly your piece is really firing through after a6 am I right or is that someone else's priority?

Not so much. He knows what he has to do - and it's more like at 4. The stuff you see after impact is a result.

No video but ball flight was great once I worked out the kinks.

Mostly 6 iron but I also hit some driver, 4h and 8 iron.

Couple pitch shots with my 56*. Pitch shots were ok but not great. I kind wish I had done the Erie trip a little closer to the season but when opportunity knocks you best be answering the door.

Yep. It went well too. I'll try to get some video up this week. Been practicing with a 2 litre bottle full of water instead of a club. Really helps me feel the left shoulder move.

Getting great trajectory. In the past my good shots were always bullets but now they really get up there and drop softly, much easier to be accurate this way!
