evolvr lessons

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 

So I just signed up for these since the instructor I work with is heading off to a better life the end of this month.  My question is when I got my video back I was told I need to get my left arm out and down more but, not sure how to do this.  It would be nice in the lessons if they could do a video demonstration of what they would like to see or a way to communicate back and forth.  Not sure if I need to shift my arm down or out or both and how to do it without causing harm.

I've been using Evolvr since February / March of this year.  I've made some nice progress working with the Evolvr team.  My recommendation is to send a note back to your instructor and request additional information.  

 

Again, going off of my own personal experience working with the Evolvr staff has been solid.  The responses that I've received from their team (mvmac) has always had my swing compared to a professional - or ideal swing to memic from another player.  And then pulled in additional video links with drills that can help with hitting the proper geometry / feels.

 

Regarding the left arm... Are they talking about A1 to A4 (Backswing) or A5 to A7 (Downswing to Impact), or A7 to A10 (Impact to Finish)? If you can comment on that... I'm sure that there are plenty of users here on the site that can help point you into the right direction (using your swing thread) on how to get the left arm in a better position.

a5 to a7 i've always had the issue where my left arm stays glued to my chest then I have to tilt my shoulders to get down to the ball.  Something I've done for ever.  I remember someone posting a video on here about a pump drill but, couldn't find it.

We'll have an answer for you shortly.

 

This site isn't evolvr, even though Mike and I (and Dave sometimes) post here. It'll be faster if you write to evolvr@thegolfevolution.com .

 

I think you are talking about this video:

 

 

I made a thread somewhere about "getting your hands down too quickly" and too slowly (or something like that) that I'll try to find. I may edit this after I see your evolvr lesson though. I don't want to give you the wrong stuff.

Hi Poser,

 

You're doing great and are on the right track.  Sorry if there was any confusion with the analysis but I'll just reiterate what I said in the video.  Left shoulder stays low longer from A4 down, back stays towards the target longer while your arms move down so the hands are just in front of the right thigh at A6.  Mikes video above is exactly what you need to practice regarding the "pump drill".  And try that other drill I gave you with the glove under the left arm.

Great video.  Thanks for posting.  I think I've seen the guy in this video before?  Not sure where, though? a3_biggrin.gif
