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

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?)

    • Picked up a birdie on my away course, hole 5 a par 4 ay Campbell’s Scottish Highlands. Pulled my drive left but had a nice recovery 4H to about 105 yards. PW to 4 feet and made the birdie putt.
    • Day 277: Play 18 in a light rain this morning. Played ok with some good drives and shots, but also some missed right.
    • Thank you.  I'll play this out a bit in 2022 and count the rounds at each, too.  I think for 2022, my formerly-close home course will be the most common "not my close home course" I play, so it'd be different from the rest of the away composite.  
    • BTW try to name the pictures well so that everyone knows what they are looking at. I will rename the three I added to start the album when I get a moment.
    • I'm a long time flight-simmer and have MSFS on my PC with yoke, throttles, pedals, etc.  Pretty much built my current setup around flight simming (though my daughter does some gaming and takes advantage of the hardware!).  Got the max version day of release last August and have really enjoyed it. There's a "friend" system built-in.  I haven't really used it (one random person with "Bama" in their name friended me)--but would love to fly with any of you guys.  Add me as a friend when you can.  My MSFS profile name is "THEBAMABRUIN".  I fly several times a week, mostly at night...or when it's rainy outside.  So catch me online, or message me here to link up.  Since my kiddo regularly uses my rig, I'll commandeer her sweet headset and we'll go for a fly somewhere cool.
