What I'm working on:
1) More arm bend in my right arm at A2. Fail here. God it feels like it's so bent, but it's not. I'm only like 15 degrees from where I want to be, but that seems like a mile. Gotta keep working on that.
2) This one is tough because it involves so many pieces I need to work on. The transition is so dynamic it's tough to do unless I take a full swing. Of course, I slow the hell down when I do it, so tempo is a major thing here when trying to fix this, but there are a lot of things that get bundled into me making a better transition:
a) shallow club and load trigger finger and flying wedge
b) add pressure into lead foot
c) bring arms down and keep the left shoulder steep
3) This one I'm not really working on but I have to be aware of it for the future. No.2 on this list is really my priority right now even though no.1 on this list plays a big role in making no.2 possible. But I need that left shoulder to rotate more to my left rather than up or else my body senses I'm going to hit it fat. My head then pops up as a result far too early. Anyway, again, this is just something I try to feel in slow motion practice swings, but not when I'm actually swinging because this is too much to think about.
You'd think I'm not following my priorities but I am. I had an 8 hour lesson with James, and this is what we worked on. Stephan from evolvr wants me to keep my hip slants steeper in the early downswing as I add pressure forward, and James never really went out and said that to me, even though that does correlate with me keeping my left shoulder steeper. So I work on both. In slow motion practice swings, I feel that as I transition, I am keeping the left shoulder steep and the right hip high as the arms come down and pressure goes forward.
This is a lot of stuff. Again, 1 and 2 are what I'm really focusing on.
Here's me today taking a full swing at the end of my range session. This swing was made after I hit about 60-65 balls hitting just slow motion swings trying to hit my priorities. I used seven iron the entire time.
Result was a perfect push draw with a shallow divot. Already I'm seeing results even if the shaft tipped out here and my shoulder popped up after A5... it was a really small improvement that has already made my swing better. I'm happy with the baby step forward I made today.
PS- I screwed up the camera angle, sorry. Needs to be more left, but this isn't so much an analysis video. Just a "where I'm at right now" kind of video so you guys can see me hitting a full shot in real time.
