So last year I weighed in for my company's health screening at 278 pounds. That was pretty shocking, embarrassing, and sad. Instead of pouting about it, I decided to get to work, change my diet and run...run...run...run...and run. Fast forward about 9-10 months and I am now 185 pounds!
Last season, I shot 2 rounds in my work golf league under par, having about 75% of my rounds staying in the 35(par)-39 range. This year, however, is a completely different story. Sure, we're only 4 weeks in, but my best round posted is a 44, with a nice grouping of 3 - 48's that followed . I know I had swing faults last year, but I kept it pretty consistent. I really want to blame the weight loss ( I now turn different, get into more athletic positions, all that mumbojumbo) but I'd rather just understand what I'm currently doing and try to build my swing, again.
This is a swing from September 2012:
Here is a Down-the-Line and a Face-On swing from tonight (it was windy and the audio on my camera was acting up, I'd recommend turning your headset/speakers down!)
I was trying to read Erik's post about "deep hands" and I was really trying to get that feeling. The part I kept feeling "Stuck" on, was trying to keep my right elbow connected to the body a the top of my swing. It just feels like I forgot how to downswing
I feel great and am happy/proud of the new body type, but it is beyond frustrating that I cannot move the ball like I know I'm capable of. Any help would be appreciated.
