My Swing (TN94z)

As I am watching video of my swings doing the drills and practicing, it seems that my back swing may be a bit too long. It looks like when I stop my swing at what "feels" like 3/4, everything is more sync'd up and I get better results. But if I do what I "feel" like is my full swing, that's when the over the top move seems to come into play. I'll run this by my instructor when I post my next round of videos. I am making a record of it here as a point to come back to.

This is what the thread below is all about. I use the right arm straight as a feel and it help align things in my backswing.

I actually have one of the swing extenders in my closet. Maybe I need to drag that thing back out while I'm doing my drills.

I have one of those things too. Its the only swing aid ive ever used. I think it was designed to help people who collapse their arms during the backswing, but for me it stops me from over swinging. When i feel it on the inside of my forearm i just stop my backswing.

Yeah, I think that is where it would be most useful to me as well.  When I am making my slow mo swings for my drills, the A4 position feels so natural and usually leads me to a better path on the way down with no over the top move. But in my full swing, my arms tend to keep going a bit even after shoulder turn has stopped and that's where some of my path problems are being introduced.

The funny thing is, I have seen on Trackman that my 3/4 swing (what I "feel" is 3/4) ends up going the same distance as what I "feel" is my full swing. I don't know why I try to swing that much more.

Still working on my latest pieces. Between a few work situations and mostly crappy weather, I haven't had much change to get to the range. I'm hoping that is changing now. I did get in a session yesterday after work, but didn't have anyone with me to video. I had some new feelings but won't really pay much attention to those feelings until I can see what is happening on video. There were some guys on the range next to me yesterday that were really good ball strikers. It has me pumped to get these changes made this year. We just joined our local country club 2 weeks ago. I decided to go this route instead of the simulator.

Started working on forearm rotation and weight transfer stuff last week with left arm not so stiff and WOW! No more fades and borderline slices (when I get these things close to right). I'm going back to what "feels" like a half swing on the back swing (A3.5), that puts me more like right above 3/4 on video and my distance is the same as before. Also, I get a more penetrating ball flight over my high flight from before. And a biggie is now I have ball first contact with a divot afterwards. I still don't have these changes down or anything, but that's what typically goes on when I get the changes pretty close. I feel like I am for sure on the right track here. I figured out another "feel" today for the timing of the weight transfer as well. It's really opening my eyes up to what I have been doing wrong. I am as excited now as I have ever been about working on my swing!

I have made some good progress on my impact position. Here are some still photos of before and after on my impact positions. I am feeling crazy excited about changing my impact position picture and getting rid of that horrible flip and early extension

Making some good progress. And I am glad to finally say that my early extension happens way less than it did. I think I am finally close to getting it out of my swing. I am also hitting much more consistent drives. My driver has really been giving me fits the last year. I think a few more weeks of working on the latest drills and I will have that much more consistent. The good thing about the driver work is that the swing feels like 50% effort compared to what I was "feeling." But I get it much more on the center of the club face and the ball still goes as far if not further. The ball just seems to carry forever. I am really excited about what I am seeing. i still have a ways to go to have these changes down, but they are already helping tremendously on the course. I played 9 yesterday and after the first 4-5 holes, I really had expectations of being under par on the front...it didn't end up that way, but it's the first time in years I have felt like it was really going to happen.

I had the absolute best day of driving that I have had in many years last week! I was literally hitting a baby draw exactly where I was aimed all day. Hopefully, these changes I am working on are going to stick around. My wedges were off this same day or I would have shot around 75. I ended up with an 82. I could not hit a green from anywhere inside 120. Feeling good and ready to see how much further along I'll be in a few more months. I'll try my best to get some video up just to see how that picture is looking.
