I’ve been working with the longer band over the past few weeks. Last week, my range opened up again and I got to hit some real balls. I have the pitching motion down for the most part, but when I go for longer swings, I can’t hit it right. When I try doing my typical swing with the longer band, it always crosses over under my club. I guess that means I’m too flippy. When I try to keep the band behind and have it hit on my forearm on the follow through, I usually end up hitting behind the ball and/or leaving the clubface way open at impact. It feels really weird, like I’m holding off the follow through to keep the band from crossing over. When the club hits the ground early, it almost always crosses over.

It’s frustrating, but I’ll keep working with it - definitely get a different feeling from it. I try to take it off and hit some without it after. Need to get the camera setup for the range too. Anyone else been using it and struggling through like me?

This was me with my Plane Mate:

Few training aids provide the feel of a tour level swing. The PlaneMate is definitely an exception.  Created by Martin Chuck and David Woods, the PlaneMate promotes great structure throughout your entire swing.  

Great training aids don't come around everyday, so I love when I find one that actually helps me improve my swing. And it's even better when it's on sale!  

If you haven't tried the PlaneMate, click the link above to save over $30! It's on sale for the first time ever!

I ordered one. Thought about getting one of these a while ago, then never got around to it. Thanks for sharing.

Great. They're nice for a lot of things. Particularly down near the ball.

I have to add that it matches very close to what my Evolvr instructor has had me work on for the last year. I use it as part of my practice at times as a refresher. Well worth it.

I ran into the second "speed bump" in my off-season training, earlier this week: Takeaway. (First was unlearning "straight back, head up.")  Talked to one of my trainers. He suggested a PlaneMate might help me get it right. 

Unfortunately I bunged my right knee up in the meantime, and my "golf studio" (the living room) is a bit cluttered with our painter's dreck, so I won't find out for a few days.

I'm curious, the Planemate had a lot of buzz for about a year or year and a half. I haven't heard much for a while. Have people gotten what they wanted from this? Has the golf community moved on to something else?

    • If you add wind in there, that would make a difference. 30’s, 20mph wind and rain, heck no! 40’s and ill do it. 
    • Oh golly I'm hot today!!  Kidding aside, when we set the course up for junior PGA kids we just put the tee boxes in the fairway. We also have several senior women who just tee off from the 200 or 150 disks. 
    • Integrity, sportsmanship and character. Obviously a pretty subjective and selectively applied criteria in the case of the Baseball Hall of Fame. There are definitely some pretty shady characters enshrined in Cooperstown. I think the commonality between the steroid-era guys and the gamblers (like our buddy that played down I-75) is that those guys embarrassed Major League Baseball.  
    • I probably take off 6-7 days a year to play golf, especially when the weather starts to heat up in the spring. I actually just took this past Tuesday off and played. Doing the same thing next Thursday. I am getting ready to change jobs, and I am trying to burn a few sick days before I lose them. My new job pays you each year for your unused leave, so going forward I will have to make a tough decision, golf or money.
    • I don't play in the rain, but considering we average about 10 inches of rain a year that's not normally an issue. 40° is about my cutoff as far as temperature, but the average high even in December and January is 50° so again not really an issue. I wish Albuquerque wasn't such a shitty city, because the weather is great!
