Taken today by my instructor Frank Gasaway. I should add that the FO view is a little misleading; that was probably the worst swing I made today.
Agreed. I just love my 60 degree so much. Its hard to switch. I've been looking at the Taylormade ATV wedge, and my birthday is coming up, so lets hope.
Your swing looks pretty nice, so that makes sense. Just looks so hard to pull of consistently! But I guess that's why that's not one of the (many) oddities of my swing, but it is one of yours. You can pull it off...
Yeah. I've been doing that since I was a tiny little kid swinging a golf club. But honestly that's probably the most its ever lifted, in the FO video. Its only a inch or two usually.
Yeah his instructor Frank Gasaway is a smart dude so I'm prone to agree with whatever he says the priority piece is.
Been working steadily on keeping my head still on the downswing. Finding a consistent feel has been difficult (one feel thats worked well is stretching my left side on the downswing), but I'm making progress. Wanted to do range work today, but my poor state of Georgia is full of ice and snow.
Made good progress on my swing. The lurch forward has basically been eliminated. Just a half an inch after working with my instructor. We're moving on to a new piece.
Footwork is the name of the game now. Keeping the hips "deep", so to speak. Frank put a foam stick in front of my right knee and I had to make swings with hitting it on the downswing. Worked out really well. Immediately fixed the fats and the thins that I'd been dealing with the last few weeks. Rolling the right ankle changed everything.
In conjunction with that, we've been working on changing my driver AOA. I have a very steep AOA with my driver and it's been a secondary piece for a while now (i.e. I've been reluctant to change my driver habits.) Today, though, I got frustrated with my lack of distance. I hit my driver 260 one hole and then hit an 8-iron 177 yards on the next. My distances don't match up in that regard. After a few drills and mishits, my first hit on the upswing carried 300 yards. I think I'll stick with that.
Long post with no video. I'm going out to the course before college tomorrow to hit some balls for a few hours. If I can find my tripod (buried deep in the garage smh) I've record some video.
Don't take much stock in what your divots are doing. Where they occur matter more than what they look like, making sure they happen after the ball.
Also, what iron are you using in that set up?
I would say you have the ball too far back and standing too close, if that is were your feet are at when you set up to the ball.
