Lol, I now know far too much about Gdaddy's priorities.

LOL ... yeah, this is the first time I heard that one.

I'll say.  Hey, if it works I'll do it!  (Not the giraffe, but the sink)  Gotta draw the line somewhere.

To do list: get a bigger sink. ;-)

Nice swing Drew, keep up the good work. Great to play with you yesterday, noticed you didn't hit any of those big pushes with the driver that you use to hit. Keep doing that tee drill that Erik showed you to help the thrust pieces at impact/into the followthrough.

It looks very nice!  I like the little Kuchar move in the takeaway.

Thanks!  Yeah, I had no big pushes Monday and I think I had one on Sunday.  And it wasn't even that big and only a push (didn't cut like they sometimes do)  Oddly enough, I'm attributing that to my new WEAKER grip that Stephan has me working on.  He had me weaken the grip to try and curb my other big miss - which was a really ugly pull hook.  He politely referred to it as an "overdraw."  LOL.

 

Here's my theory:  With my old grip, I knew that the overdraw was a possibility, so I was sometimes scared to commit to the swing (especially if there was trouble left), and that led to the push cut.  Now that I know it's so much harder to hit a pull hook (I can still do it - had two Sunday and one Monday) I am less tentative about missing left, and thus am less prone to miss right as well.

 

Does that make sense at all??

Really?  It kind of bugs me.  I'd like it to be a nice smooth takeaway without any extra movement.  It's just a goofy quirk that started (I don't know when) and I haven't been able to get rid of it.  (Admittedly, haven't tried too hard yet, busy with other things) :beer:

For you I would file it under "vanity piece" and work on it when you have all 5 Keys :-)

I do the same thing now, the kutchar move. What I try to do is 5 kutchar moves to 1 normal backswing. Someday I'll get rid of the Kutchar move :-D

Yes, I feel like I've made some serious progress in the last few weeks, and its mainly with this.  I've played 3 rounds in the last couple of weeks and only lost one ball (which, ironically enough, was a provisional) and on the type of courses where it was unheard of just a few weeks back for me to keep my drives in play 14 times a round.  Now that I'm able to keep it on the planet, I think I can improve upon this and start actually finding the short grass a little bit more often. :beer:

I find it hilarious that an instructor is celebrating hooks, but understanding ball flight laws, and those who have suffered thru years of slices, HOOKS ARE AWESOME!!! :dance:

From Thursday.  Nothing new, still working on the legs as well as trying to flatten the downswing, both to little avail thus far.  Then again, miniscule progress is still progress, right.  At least I'm not going backwards. :beer:

A couple of raw videos from today ...

 

 

I'm incorporating a new drill here from Stephan called the "Norman Drill."  Basically, sliding my right foot back on the downswing.  It looks goofy, but based on the way it feels, I think the gist of it is that since I'm, for all intents and purposes, standing on one leg coming into impact, it would be really, really hard to have that one leg bent too much ... or else I'd crumple to the ground.

 

Overall, same goals still ... straighter legs at impact, "jumping" feel, flatter swing from A4 on, get that shaft pointing at or just beyond the ball in DTL.

 

P.S.  That sweater sitting on the bag stand is not purple, it's maroon.  (and red, argyle)  Just sayin'.

How far away is that bridge..?

 

And, what's wrong with Purple..?  :-D
