My wrists set later in my actual swing than A2 but the feel is about the same in terms of what they’re doing; I’ve worked on this in the past.

I think this might be what i do too. I need to get back on my swing thread and check. Could be why it was so odd and incorrect for me. I'm not a huge practicer normally and have never worked on anything specific so this is eye opening for me.

I've got an idea, and I'd like buy-in from a good number of people here. I'd like people to commit to doing this every day in April. Since we're all stuck inside (not all, and not literally insid

Day 1 - Early Backswing In the first day we examine the setup, grip, and the early backswing. Faults that we often see: Bad grips (palmy, weak) Bad setups (back flat, butt out, grip

Day 28:

COVID-19 - Day One

Hopefully this opens for y'all.  Please ignore the background sounds... it's my kids on the trampoline.

I had physical therapy today at noon, and I was really feeling it in my lower back.  And it was recorded with Screencast-O-Matic on my county issued work computer.  I really felt like I was sticking it to the man!😁

Forgot the split hand drill so went back and did that after.  My daughter was “helping” me film so the tripod was moving some.

Done... Good drill. I'm going to try to film these going forward, but I will probably be doing them late in the evening.

Good drill, I like it because it's simple and clearly explained. 

Thanks.

Day 1 complete. I didn't get a chance to film. I've got to get my filming setup back out and try to get some of these filmed. Love it though. Such simple explanation compared to some I have heard. Very much looking forward to this series.Thanks!

Day 1 in the books. I have been having trouble with my grip, and this helped a lot. I also used to roll the club back in the back swing. Focusing on the wrist made not rolling easier. I started striking the ball better almost immediately. Chipping is much improved as well.

No video but I really liked these drills. Been hitting the ball really poorly and this basic exercise resulted in some well struck chips with the final element of the session, and built some confidence through success.

I dropped the ball and tomorrow is a full day.   ☹️

FOR SHAME!!! Just kidding. I am almost sure that I will miss a day or tow during this, and plan on just doubling/tripling up when it happens

I did day one, but my home practice room is not set up for video... yet.  That's an oversight, because I figured 1-2 times per month I'd get to a range and get video for evolvr (success rate for this since setting up the practice room in November : 0).  So... I'll fix that tomorrow. 

But I did day one.  And I'll get video of doing day one again if you want, plus day two, tomorrow.  

By the end, even on the split hands, I was getting some "that felt solid" on the quarter shots.  That feels great. :-)  

(should I cross-post into the "30 days challenge" thread?)

    • Here you go. A better Google view of the course.
    • I had studied the numbers a lot a while ago and  do know most of us (including me) definitely think they get closer than they do more often. And there is no doubt this was a great day for Taylor. I don't think he missed a green on the second shot except once. That is not a typical day. And close is a very unspecific term I should know better than to use. All relative. Close for me is anywhere on the green, sadly and that is what I need to work on. Same with putting...I love watching guys who routinely ship it 5' past the hole from 10' out get upset because "I should have made that. Practically a gimme"...uh, no it wasn't...statistically, it isn't a gimme for the best players in the world, that guy it is a low percentage attempt. Intellectually i know that but do sometimes forget it in the moment.   At the same time, I definitely need to work on my approaches. Per Strokes gained, they are my weakest area...just not accurate from there at a level that matches the rest of my game. Putting, despite declining, is the strongest at -.02, approaches at -.45. Seems like low-hanging fruit lol. I have no illusions I will stick it tour close but would be nice to find the green from 150 and in instead of my current average of 3.6/round. Seems...bad. But I like checking in to see where I need to put the 65% time.

Stonelick is almost the furthest you can get away from Akron in Ohio.   
    • Grade: B+ Likes: Simple, good drill that I use fairly often. Clear audio, picture. Good use of Tour players (well, at least one) to show this. Dislikes: I didn't love the explanation if you were struggling to get the drill right. He just kept telling you about the drill, and how it would improve contact. Could have used some slow-mo, but it would have shown him fighting off the wrists a bit more, I think. Would have loved to show advanced versions, like where you can manipulate the path a bit by how much the arms come off the chest, etc.
