Something like that.  :-D Up and down up and down over the year so far.  At least I am not shanking the ball this week.  3W still needs some major work with the early left leg extension and tipping back but yeah things are starting to look more promising.

We need to organize a trade. He says I need to straighten mine. ;-)

That was what I needed to do last fall.  Doing it at the right time and in sequence is not all that easy.  I am still working on it and will have to probably for a long time.

Yeah agree with Brian, head tips back, left knee straightens too soon, too much weight in the right foot at A10

Thanks Mike!  I did not catch the issue with the right foot either.  When I was having the tipping back problem with the driver, I focused on that right foot like this.  The good news is it is an easy fix for two of the problems anyway.  I will work on that.

Don't know if I should be proud or ashamed. My 6 year old son made a real par on a par three from the junior tees at 142 yards and beat his Dad for the hole. I made a bogey from the back tees. Told him, "hey take it easy on me". It's Father's Day weekend and and all.

Already beating you and he's six? You better get used to it, fast! a1_smile.gif

Congrats to Ethan on the first par!

Noticed the first video in this thread was at Moorland golf center, that's my go-to practice location during the winter.  Gotta love Wisconsin!

He was pretty excited about it.  To him it was a birdie. ;-)

Yeah I don't go there much other than in the winter.  It is a bit of a driver for me.  Welcome to the Forum!


 

 

 

Ethan wanted to go to the range before.  I just had him put his hands together for now and that is it.

No, his tee shot was not great, got caught up in the rough, but he hit the green with his second from about 50 yards to about 4-5 feet and made this putt.  He kinda jumped the gun and started the putt before I started recording.  Like I said, to him it was a birdie.  ;-)

I just recorded a few of his other shots today.

Wow, Ethan is pretty straight of the tee. I now feel 100% worse about my game.:8)

 

But only for a few seconds because that's awesome! :dance:

Yeah same here.  I was pushing the ball all over the place today.  He definitely was making better contact with his hands together as well.    :beer:

He does has some natural ability, I don't know how much.  It is up to him what he wants to do with it.  I just hope he continues to have fun.  That is what is most important to me.  It is fun to watch as well.  I am not going to be one of those delusional dads though about his abilities.

Wish I could stop tipping back with the driver.  I thought I was doing better but apparently not much.  I may need to feel I am almost leaning forward, IDK.  I will keep working at it.  If I could figure out this stupid driver I might actually be a legit 4HC.  :-D
