Buy a new wedge, and drop the longest iron you have.

So going with a better set of irons with weaker lofts wouldn't be a good idea then? I guess a wedge is cheaper than a set of clubs hah

Well I was trying to give you another idea of what you can do. If you want new irons have at it ;-)

Almost guaranteed. Contact is an issue, which also costs distance.

 

I did a video once on "getting your hands down faster." I guess it was never a 5SK video.

 

I would be interested in seeing this.  Can you post it again?

Please find it on the site somewhere. It was a quickie video, or else it'd be "official" and thus easier to find. Spent all day packing books.

Maybe?

No. It was one where I demonstrated never getting the arms down with getting the arms down too quickly. The former was on the left IIRC.

I will look.  Just thought you might know offhand.

Nope, sorry. If I knew where it was off-hand, or even a few yards away from my hand (??? :D), I'd add it. I think it had big green and red circles drawn too, and I traced the clubhead path? Maybe?

 

Edit:  

 

So, not quite what I had remembered. But still somewhat relevant.

Isn't that the weight forward for secondary axis tilt video? That's the only one I remember with green and red circles.

Edit: never mind, you found it.

Your memory there might be a lot better than mine. It is that video: Weight Forward and Secondary Axis Tilt

So, went to the range and worked on half swings..... Not a fun time, hit almost everything to the right.... I'll keep working on it, but yea, not fun.

 

ps yeah my 1/2 swing feeling is nowhere near a half swing, that's 9 iron swing

 

 

Also, yeah, I'm still flipping big time and it's annoying the crap out of me. I did some of the preset drills and hit them pretty well then went into "1/2 swing" full shots and even though it "felt" like I wasn't flipping the video showed that I was as much or more than before.

One idea is to move the ball two balls back from your front foot instead of the middle.. If you flip you will most likely hit it fat really bad.. Also don't just do half swing feel, jus try 10% swings first and move up to 20% and so on. It is worth a shot unless there is something else very specific you are working on..

Ok, so I played 39 holes today. It was up and down but towards the end I started focusing on keeping "connected", I think that's the term. Basically I kept the feeling of my arms touching my sides. After that I had a lot of really nice high draw shots. I hit a lot of greens in reg but my putting had gone to crap and 3 putted a lot. This was keeping me from coming over the top and I think it also kept me from flipping so much because almost all of my approach shots hopped and stopped. I'll try to get to the range this week to film my swing. I'm sure this ruined my "stupid monkey" try but when I stumbled on this it was very consistent as long as I didn't squeeze my arms to my sides because that caused a really flat swing. Does any of what I just said even make sense?

post #107 of 279
Makes sense to me. And I don't necessarily think you ruined your stupid monkey try. When on the course, you kinda have to go with what works.

It definitely was working, just wish my putting didn't go to crap. My distance control was pretty much horrid, I didn't hit them hard enough today. On another positive note, I left the course with more golf balls then I started with, I had plenty of time to search for them because the course was pretty busy and I need to kill time.
