I think you just look more relaxed in slacks than in cargo shorts. :)

It also seems to really help me nail one of my priority pieces which is to keep my shoulder pitch from getting too exaggerated. I was measuring at 45* at A4 because I was over doing the "left shoulder down", now I'm consistently around 34*-35*.

 

Ball flight is nice and high and is sticking to the greens nicely. Misses tend to be pulls and seem to be most common when I over swing a bit. As long as I stop my backswing before I lose that straight right arm feel I usually stay on target. Picked up a buttload of distance with this shorter backswing too! In fact, running out of fairway and over shooting has been hurting my scores LOL. My 60* wedge has taken over a lot of shots that used to belong to my 56*.

 

Anyway, submitted to Evolvr today and am looking forward to what they have to say. Here's the videos I submit for those of you who are interested. Feel free to comment, even if it's just to make fun of my "net". ;-)

I guess I'll have to wait to see what Evolvr say unless one of y'all has a comment? Hitting the ball well regardless but this just jumped out at me today as odd.

 

 

Hands aren't as forward at impact either, bordering on the edge of a flip?

Just thought I'd tag @cbrian , pretty sure he's my current Evolvr coach. I'm not looking for freebies or anything but some of the discussion in this thread today should have been included in my Evolvr notes. I made some observations long after uploading. This way, if he's around and bored, he can get more info on how and what I'm doing to get to where he want's me to be. Also thought it be good for him to know who I am on TST.

It looks like you're stance is a wider on the right vs. your Erie photo. Is that intentional? For myself, I find it's easier to do the hip slide and get my weight to my left when I have a narrow stance such as you're doing in the Erie photo. Sorry if that's not helpful or something you're already aware of.

Yes, it definitely is. I find stance width varies a lot from day to day, not to mention the lie or surface you're standing on. FWIW, I agree this is a bit wider than my "normal" stance.  I also find weight transfer easier with a narrower stance but this one is still within my comfort zone.

Just a screen shot from the video above. I wouldn't recommend using me as a model though...lol

Hit the course on the way to work this morning. Didn't putt anything out, just worked on tee shots and approaches. Spotty contact, lots of thins, still hit a fair amount of GIR and nGIR (played 8 holes and hit 3 GIR and 2 nGIR) but it's not very satisfying getting them with crappy shots. Might drill key#2 a bit with the squishy ball under the foot after work...or just go play golf...:-D

Thanks. It's kinda stupid how easy it is to shoot a bad angle when you're not standing on a square practice mat. I'll try to be more diligent with this. Hope it's still good enough for Evolvr, that's the same video I submitted. :~(

You might not believe some of the camera views we've gotten on evolvr…

Just look at all the wacked out angles on YouTube. Camera on ground. 60ft back.

The bubble level helps. Even my el cheapo $20 tripod has one.

Ernie, I tried it.  Didn't work.  I think I am just going to try the MGS swing....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously though, the feel did not actually work for me.  I have had limited success with the "feel" of stopping the hands at waist height.

I would try LPG first. It's Logman approved.

Sorry, I didn't notice the camera angle being a bit off, so obviously disregard what I said about your address position.

As for the camera placement issue, I usually set up a camera by placing an alignment stick on the ground perpendicular to my target line as my center line, and then another stick perpendicular to that (parallel to the target line) like I'm making a big "T." I square my camera to that and just stand over the sticks when I hit.

Any idea who is doing my analysis on his one?
