First time out and swinging since May. I am looking forward to this season. Hopefully I am finally over my injury which only allowed me to play 3-4 times all of last year, and none at all since May.
My focus was on 1) soft right arm on the backswing, 2) limiting my backswing length (which I did not do as well as I thought)(overall not happy with the backswing here, 3) weight forward, 4) arms getting down faster; primary the left arm dropping on the downswing, and 5) not early extending or lifting out of the shot. Previously following my hip bump I would pull my left shoulder up (extending left side, and dropping right shoulder) which caused major casting and topping the ball (and contributed to my chest/rib injury).
My previous miss was either hitting behind the ball or pushing weak shots to the right (severely weak and to the right). Playing nine after the practice session I can gladly say that the ball advanced on every shot and while I hit some fat, I made ball first contact on all. I hit 8 out of 9 fairways (mostly 3 wood or mid iron). Pitching and chipping really hurt me. All of my shots were also very low. I have struggled with my hands being too far forward at impact. Many times my hands are well ahead of my left leg and I have delofted a lot.
What I see in the videos - 1) Head moves forward a lot. I also dip down more than I thought I was. 2) Left shoulder, after going down to 6 o'clock on the backswing, raises a bit. I am not happy with how my backswing looks. 3) As I was focusing on the arms getting down faster, at times I lead with the arms first in transition. 4) Some major follow through issues.
I am currently not doing evolvr as I could not swing forever and did not want to pay for it when I was not using it. Hopefully I will sign up again soon. In the meantime I appreciate any help in identifying a priority piece.
