My Swing (Sinik)

Yeah I just think it throws me off because of where I horizontally align my two hands when trying the version where I raise my arms first. Makes it awkward for me to move to the intermediate steps before I rotate back. But maybe that's the point, maybe it being awkward for me is a signal of the fact I'm just doing it wrong haha

Maybe.

Make the right change. Which won't be anywhere near full speed.

If you oriented a clock where 9 PM is directly left and 3 PM is directly right from your field of view in the first drill (hands up, then turn), are your hands going up to 1 PM?

No. Look, it's pretty simple, and it's been the same thing the whole time:

  • Your "shirt seam" is on the side of you. Your "midline" in the "coronal plane."
  • Your sternum is in the front of you.
  • Both of those things move as you turn your torso during your backswing.

You move your trail elbow and trail upper arm too far toward the shirt seam, and it should stay more toward the sternum. It can go up or down, it goes too far around. It starts in front of your sternum, and shouldn't move nearly as far from where it starts as you move it now.

All makes sense, cheers. I was just trying to orient the drill in 3D space. The two arms ultimately work together and if my trail arm/elbow is too far to the side it had me thinking that maybe I’m letting my lead arm get too splayed out flat across my chest in an effort to keep my elbows close together.

Your elbow going around your body too far pulls your left arm too tightly across your chest, yes.

But you can keep your elbows closer together when one doesn't tuck around beside you.

So to put it another way, you believe that where I’m putting the vertex of the arm triangle is a byproduct of letting the trail elbow slip too wide and not that the trail elbow slipping is the byproduct itself?

 

That def helps frame it, or at least focus it. Thanks

    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.  
    • Day 157.  I spent ten minutes hitting balls with my 6-iron indoors.  I'll be playing tomorrow, and I would have liked to get out to practice chipping and putting on a real green, but it wasn't in the cards for today's plans.  I am glad I at least got some practice in, though.  Hmm... I see Boogie did Superspeed.  I'm not sure why I put mine away a few months ago, but I need to get them back out and get back to it.
    • Day 35 (31 Jul 21) - easy day of working on trial arm position thru the swing.  I tend to under rotate (hips stop, arms try to carry the load), this drill forces the hips to keep going, taking the trunk with it.  
    • The real truth is that I'm probably the annoying playing partner. I both suck and still get mad anyway. That said, very few people really annoy me. I guess the ones that move ahead of where my ball landed because they didn't realize I was so far behind them annoy me. ... Also the guys that try to give me advice in the middle of the round bother me. ... Most people don't do either.
