Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range.
Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.
Got a decent lead in our points race.
Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program.
Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it.
I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect.
Basically my feet are more supinated with high arches. So when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing.
This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses you you access to the deep front line. I just did a video for an instructor about how this relates to hip rotation (not pelvis rotation). He promotes himself as a biomechanics expert and teaches many pros lol
Day 211. Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine. 3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys. Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam). I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day.
And Chamblee said Poulter is the worst ball striker "By a lot" of all the players and Poulter won his singles match by 3 holes LOL...
Best result of the European players and most of the USA players, guess that's what you call an anomaly. Unbelievable how stupid that statement was, the Postman did himself proud....
