Have a lesson in a week, and it's not clear if my priority piece is going well or not. Recent rounds and practices have been rough with regards to ball striking, really not knowing where the ball is going to go. But I've felt like this before, and usually at some point things click and start coming together.
Went back and reviewed some notes from previous lessons and hit some balls with those concepts and was hitting it pretty well. Then worked on my current priority piece with lots of slow rehearsals between balls and started to feel some progress. Still not great.
Yesterday’s Session 1-18-21
LOWER BODY: Flow, internal rotation of trail hip
TRANSITION: Drop arms down and deep
P5 - FINISH: Do not use right hand to help club, use body pivot
3/4 of session was 2 part drill. 1/4 slow swings
7i SLOW SWINGS
GOAL 1: Lower Body
I achieved my 2” of lateral hip bump, and kept my trail knee facing FO camera. Good
GOAL 2 and 3: Drop arms in transition and pivot through follow through.
I did my drill with a lot of focus. I also think I did a better job of not flipping my right hand at it after P5
Only minor issue was the feeling I hit down and across- like a slicer. . Unsure, maybe because club is so deep? I can’t shake the feeling I need to pivot more “up” instead of “down-left”
Due to dome hours, I cannot have a practice session until the weekend. I will continue mapping at home in the mirror.
I have a penchant for losing headcovers and towels, so I have learned to be very meticulous when using them.
When I use my driver, 3W or hybrid, I take the headcover off, partially stuff it into a hole in the bag so it won't fall out, or fall in, and then replace it immediately after hitting a ball. If I happen to have alignment sticks in my bag, I'll put the headcover over the alignment sticks.
I don't have iron headcovers, but if I did, I think I would put them in my pocket when taking a shot.
For putter, I take the headcover off and stick it in the side pocket of my bag, which is empty and always open, then replace it before putting the putter away.
No one asked, but for towels, I secure them to my bag with a carabiner. Only way to avoid losing one every week.
