My Swing (cedrictheo)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I've been Practicing Golf for: 3 years (played some when I was a kid but never practiced or got lessons)

My current handicap index is: 4.9

My typical ball flight is: Med/High Draw

The shot I'm trying to eliminate is: anything low or that curves a lot (I prefer high and straight-ish)

That's no good. Fire all the instructors you've ever seen.

 

How's the pitching? :) And your tempo?

That's a beautiful swing man.

 

Jealous of that garage set up too!!

The pitching is improving, my bad pitch shots seem to come from upper COG moving backwards in downswing... Also I've lightened my grip pressure which has helped with the loading piece. 

 

I haven't given the tempo my full attention yet (as soon as weather turns and I can go play it will be priority #1). This week I've focused on shortening backswing through less extension of my lower/mid spine while hip COG moves forward. Also working on keeping my head steady during downswing (tends to move towards target a few inches).

Thanks! A lot of practice in the garage to get the swing to look this nice...

That's good. I should film myself throwing the wedge sometime… the one I hit when you were here was the best one I think I've ever done.

Yeah, makes sense. You're not the type to forget it, but figured you'd appreciate the reminder. You're working on the right stuff. Keep at it.

That was impressive.

 

 I miss that super heavy wedge! Hitting high pitches with that club felt like slicing warm butter.

Oh come on, I'll spot you the $24.99 if you need it. :)

Baller status B-)  Now you just need a white visor ;-)

 

1 is perfect and nice upgrades with 2 and 4 since the last time I saw it. 2 was a little in and 4 would get long and across the line.

Thanks, you have a good memory! I've struggled with clubhead in at 2 but have a really good feel for it right now.

Is it still PP#3 more "on top" or is it with the tempo/pacing change?

It's a combination of a few things...

 

PP#3 on top 

 

Pressure in heel pad of left hand (Use this to monitor Power Accumulator #2 or wrist hinge)

 

Also important

rates of right elbow flexion vs. shoulder turn

Good stuff, keep up the good work. I'm working on something similar and seeing good results.
