Common. Path more rightward.

Well that's good to know, and makes me feel a bit better.

 

I literally shanked in a big circle around a short par 3, ended up chipping on from the backside of the green with my 4th shot!:banana: Lol. It was painful, but also hilarious!:-P Kinda wish I had been videoing that hole, I'd totally share it on here. :D

 


I guess that means just keep working on what I'm working on until I can do it without shanking, eh?

 

The odd slices and low, worm burner pulls that keep flaring up must be from me subconsciously altering my path way left in an effort to not shank or mega-push the ball. Makes total sense but sure is hard to fight against.

Path is instinctual.

Can you elaborate?  I've seen you say this before but I'm not sure I understand.

Not to speak for Erik, and he'll correct me if I get this wrong, but it basically means that if you're hitting it right (shank, push, slice, whatever) your instinct will be to swing left. That's probably not the what you need to do and in the case of a slice, it's disastrous.

I think @Ernest Jones knows what he's working on (he's made a long drive to see us in Erie, and those are still his priority pieces until he can get them down), and I agree with @Phil McGleno that you can't just say "swing on the same plane back and down." He's already (in a way) trying to do that.

It's perfectly fine to comment on here and offer advice, just as it's equally fine for the OP to choose not to take it.  A lot of us are taking lessons and are using these threads more as a swing blog to help others, or to share ideas of whats working and whats not working with others who are going through the same issues, and not necessarily as pleas for help.

 

Recognize that and you are fine.:beer:

That's pretty much what I thought.  I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on some piece of advice that would magically fix my swing.  Thanks for the response, EJ.

So I stuck an alignment rod in the ground a few feet behind my ball angled roughly like my club shaft at address to try and get rid of the tip-out in transition. Like this, although looking a @iacas' post (where this pic came from) I realize I was doing it a bit differently. I had the stick about 3-4 feet behind, so I'll try it roughly lined up with my right shoulder.

It worked so well I think I'll just practice like that for a while. The nice thing about it is, just having it there forces the change without having to consciously add anything to my process. I can just focus on my priority piece and make sure I don't crash into the stupid stick! Hopefully I'll discover some feels that I can use when the stick isn't there.

I'm not sure that this post was meant to discuss the stick you stuck in the ground.. I'm thinking it had more with giving yourself a reason to re-post the picture.  Just saying :)
