First time doing a time lapse video. I didn’t realize how much it sped things up and could have filmed the entire practice session. Instead I filmed a couple of minutes of myself doing all the drills and it turned into a 9 second video:

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.

Did this in my cozy and improvised home office. This is stuff I have worked on in the past, so it was pretty straightforward for me.

  •  
  • Hands go out early
  • Hands/forearms roll the clubhead in early
  • Clubface rolled open prematurely

Definitely see these three a lot! Thanks for the video series!

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.

Day 1 completed. Good drill to tighten up the takeaway and the distance the club is from my body. Thanks!

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?)

    • Day 122.  More carpet putting;  larger room, a bit more time, different spot, same ruler.  I am beginning to think bead is not the problem with my putting. 
    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down.
