I finally had a chance to post some update information. I played Friday evening, but have been really busy since.
Anyway, the ball striking is definitely improving. I played lights out (for me) on Friday. Was able to get 36 holes in. First round I shot an 81 with 34 putts. I hit a personal best 9 greens and 10 fairways. The shots where I missed the fairway were not by much, and still left me with a chance at the green. Tee shots were going right where I wanted them (still not very long), and my iron game was on. Again, keep in mind I was playing from the 6000 yard white tees that are rated 69.0/122. Second round was a little bit worse, but still very good for me. 82 with 33 putts, 7 greens, 9 fairways. As such, I took an average of the rounds played this year, and adjusted my "estimated" handicap.
I probably should try playing from a longer set of tees to see if my game still holds up. I have a suspicion it will not due to the fact my drives were still hit short. Long drives of the day were around 225-230. Most were probably closer to 210.
I am uploading videos right now, and will try to post them later tonight or maybe tomorrow.
BTW I have to give credit to all the guys who have given advice. Especially @mvmac . It appears (to me) the biggest change since the first vids is posture. I would have not believed before that it could improve ball striking as much as it has. I don't really have anything else to attribute it to though. I did try to keep the right arm soft, but when I looked at my vids, it did not appear I made a whole lot of headway there. I suppose it is possible I just had a good day, but I don't really think so. I played quite a bit better than I ever have before. My ball striking was substantially better, and it definitely showed up in my score.
Again, thanks a lot guys.
