The second video was excellent too. How hard was it for you not to mention AimPoint being that you both teach that? I assume it is because it is a different company.

Yeah. Basically. 🙂

Purchased yesterday, and just downloaded the videos on my phone. Looking forward to watching.

I'm really jonesing for good instructional content lately being stuck inside working from home with wife and kids, so this will be a nice respite from the quarantine routine.

Funny story, kinda… we had the scripts set for the studio portions, and go in, and the first segment is something like five minutes straight of Dave and I talking. We don't want to be distracting, we want to enunciate, we want to read everything correctly without looking like we're reading, etc.

So we're nervous.

The guy says "go" and we're off, recording, and doing our five minutes.

We finish, and think we did well. No distracting movements, no stumbles on words, no sneezes, etc.

The guy says "uhhhh, let's do that again." We're disappointed and we ask "Why, what did we mess up?" He says "Nothing. It was too perfect. It felt awkward how perfect it was. You guys have to loosen up and act more naturally, who cares if you stumble on a word or two, or if you scratch your shoulder once, or something. It makes it more authentic. You guys didn't do a single distracting thing or mess up once. It was unsettling." 🙂

So, we intentionally didn't "care" as much from there on, if we slouched a little, or scratched the side of our nose, or adjusted my glasses, or whatever.

I'm teaching online for the first time this quarter.  I've recorded an occasional lecture before, but this quarter (and this upcoming summer) all the classes I teach are online and not in-person (note for anyone reading this that doesn't know me:  I teach, but not golf).  When we were going over plans before the term, it got mentioned a few times that the classes feel weirder for students if we try to avoid the stumbling, the saying "uhh" and so on.  

In any case, I bought the set a moment ago and downloaded the first video.  I don't know if I'll get a chance to watch before the weekend but I'm sure the videos are fantastic.  I'm very much looking forward to watching them (and catching up on the practice series).

I really should start with the first video, but I skipped straight to the clubhead speed one, lol.

I started on the GamePlan one.

I finished the distance/speed video, good stuff. That's the 5th or 6th accumulator with regards to the wrist move right?

Love the LSW decal on the laptop cover.

I was hoping maybe it meant they had bought out a major computer conglomerate. 🍏

We tried to, but we were $140.12 short.

I have a question about this. It was #6 on the list for increasing speed with the driver. How does this differ from casting? I find that when my right hand is too active, I hit shots fat or cast and lose in-line impact. I’ve been working to control not doing this as much in my lessons.

The simple answer… if you already throw out the angle between the shaft and the arms too quickly, then this isn't really something you can implement. If you tend to deliver the clubhead with too much shaft lean (especially with a driver), it's another area you can exploit for speed.

P.S. Casting I feel is much earlier in the downswing, but yeah, if you cast, you'd run out of this wrist motion for use near impact.

Finally had time to purchase and download these. I cannot wait to watch them over the weekend. I have been trying to get my son to read the book for a long time. Now maybe he will sit down and watch the videos. Thanks!

    • I will risk accuracy for distance if it’s still playable and I actually score better that way. If I hit it behind trees and lose balls frequently, maybe a shorter club off the tee is better, but going from a 6 iron to an 8 iron is a big difference. What I remember best from my best round to date was that I felt in control with the driver and could have at it without the fear if a push-slice. I hit fairways, rough and bunkers, but the advantage of being closer is big, even if I find a bunker or the rough. The courses also matters of course. Some people play regularly on courses with few trees and manageable rough. I’ve played on some really narrow courses where a bad shot often is a lost ball. You always have to evaluate the hole and where you are likely to land. On some holes the layout suggests an iron is better, or a wood. On other holes you can go for maximum distance with the driver. It’s easier to use numbers like that with the peofessionals than amateurs, so don’t get too caught up in decimals. Give it a try a few rounds and see what happens, but remember your shot cones and adjust club selections to the hole layouts.
    • In just the past week or so the pool noodles are out of the cups, and rakes are back out.  We've had food and beverage service on the deck all along, with limited indoor seating all along, and we still have limited seating indoors.  We're seeing a lot more two-person carts now as people are being vaccinated, but you can still ride as a single.  We're not planning any shotgun starts for tournaments yet, trying to avoid larger gatherings.  So we're progressing towards normal, not there yet. I think at the local Trump golf club, trolleys aren't allowed, caddies are highly encouraged.  Yet if you go to the home of golf, all the locals use trolleys.  Ah well, we all have our own opinions.
    • Don't worry the toes are in the sandals with the white socks...although sandals with black socks seem to be on the rise and more socially offensive especially in beach climes. 
    • Headcovers for your irons is like a vinyl film hood cover on your car.  It protects the hood from rock chips (purely aesthetic) but is a bad look.  Wear and tear on certain things in life is a given (bodies included), adds character and we should embrace it.  Like a good pair of faded jeans.  Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here.  And if I am then go out and buy some toe covers...
