Don't worry about it for now. Do this stuff all winter.

Ha ha yeah. I'm going to just work on my path for a while. It feels weird and at the range I'm having a little trouble aiming not hitting a pull

Check out the last video I did on my page where I had the alignment stick down pointed left to make sure my toe line was following that.  Pick a target on the range and force your toe line to be open to that with an alignment stick or something.

Yeah. I'm used to aiming left but I think I'd basically pull the ball a little left of that and the ball would fade back and end up a little right of my intended target.

So I went to the range today and I was hitting my irons pretty well. One thing I noticed I kept hitting big push fades with my driver.  I was wondering if I close the club face at address if that will help with my push?  Im happy with the push and the fade but Id like it to be a smaller shape. Right now it would be a tough one on a tight course ha ha.

The camera angle is not good, but you are not open to your target at all, you look closed to it.  I would start with that.

Jake, I didn't take a look at previous swings, but it look like there is a sway that appears to have crept in.. Just draw a line at your hips and take a look.. Also, I don't remember a flip in your swing, but there is a breakdown in the angle if you take a look at impact you will notice that it isn't lined up with your left shoulder.

The path is looking really good and I think the other stuff will be a quick fix, it might just have crept in because of your concentration on the other piece!

Nice job though overall, I'm liking the change!

Played 9 today at an easy par 35. I shot a 36 I lipped out a birdie putt on 9 that would have been for a even par 35. I hit 7 gir and had 18 putts. I didn't make any long putts but my lags were really good. I only had to work for my birdie on the one par 5 (made a 4 footer). It a 2800 yd course very playable but this was the first time I felt like I played it how I should. Here's a pic of the hardest hole it's a 135 yd par 3.

I had to get a picture of my ball on the green. I've played the course hundreds of times and I've probably hit the green 15 times.

So you're familiar with that hole ha. I've had a few 10's on that hole when I was younger. It's tough because long is ob essentially. Left I'd really steep (basically a flop shot) and right slopes so far away from the hole it's a weird shot. I've went back and forth over it a few times. The bunker short right is also tough cause it has a pretty high lip and if you blade it your long (ob).

Thanks coach. You and Erik helped me a lot. The best part was I hit my last 6 full swing shots perfect. I walked for the first time in a while which I enjoyed. I think it helped me take my time on my shots . When I play by myself and take a cart I have a tendency to rush.

Great playing yesterday Jakester.  Three birdies on a very tough course is impressive.  The chip in with a hybrid was cool.   The birdie putt on 10(I think it was) was about as tough of an 8-10 foot putt as you can get and you dropped it.  I was very impressed with how your swing has come along and the way you chip and putt as well.  Keep up the great work and have fun with evolvr.

Thanks again for the invite I really appreciate it. That was a fun day and I'm really out of shape. Walking 18 wrecked me for today ha ha. We should try to get together at the range over fall and winter.
