My Swing (saevel25)

Some notes from hitting the ball decently well this past weekend in Virginia. 

Backswing
1. Start swing with right hip back. 
2. Add a small bit hinge and height with arms.

Downswing
1. Turn and get right side through.
2. Straighten left leg sooner, get a bit more extension. 
3. Try to hit the ball left.

Overall things turned out well. If I didn't do the downswing well enough I would hit slight pushes right and fat some of my irons. When I did the downswing stuff better, the ball flight is pretty neutral, maybe slight pulls from time to time.

Since I can't post more than once in the 2021 goals thread. I wanted to add a new goal here. 

Have a more positive opinion of my golf game. I want to just have a more positive narrative about myself and my golf game in 2021.

Went up to Erie on Sunday. 

Primary - Continue to work on back left hand away from body in the backswing. Club more vertical at A3
Secondary - Into impact, left knee bumps left a bit, left hip goes back and left leg straightens sooner. 

I got fitted for an entire set of PXG clubs. I only bought the driver 😉

Irons - 0211-ST, C-TAPER 130g X-Stiff soft stepped once
3-Wood - 0341-Prototype, Tensei CK Blue 80TX
0811-Prototype, Tensei CK Blue 70TX

My current irons are Srixon with C-TAPER 130g X-Stiff (no step). They were really close. I would probably gained like 3 yards with my irons on optimal strikes. Since they were close enough I am sticking with the irons for another season. 

The 3-wood was way too expensive with the custom shaft for me. I think I can find a golf shaft for my current 3-wood to make it work better. I do like my current 3-wood alot. 

The driver was the biggest issue. I didn't realize how much I was spraying the ball due to the golf shaft flexing inconsistently. With more speed comes greater dispersion. I felt like this was a good deal for me. The driver came out 8 months ago. It was like $150 off. The custom golf shaft was $150. So, I got something fitted really good for the cost of the newest driver with a stock shaft.

Left knee extends faster, later. Not sooner. Early flexing is why it has to re-flex or sag or bounce.

Played 9 holes, first time swinging a club in 6 weeks. Good thing is my right side felt normal. Overall, happy with how things went. As I slowly got my golf muscles stretched out, the swing was pretty good. I want 1 over on the last 6 holes. 

Swing feels..

1. Slight sway back in the backswing
2. Top of left hand facing out at A3
3. Tried to feel a bit more of the left leg stuff, but wasn't overly focusing on it.

    • Day 609: Practiced for about 20 minutes today focusing on the hands, same as yesterday. Didn’t film because it was too hot and sunny.
    • Day 240 - Putting work today. Started with Day 11 "Putting Pendulum" drill (about 10 minutes) them hit 25 putts down a 3' line on my PuttOUT matt. 
    • Three months in, so time for an update. When I wrote these goals, I anticipated that I would be playing from the white tees, but have subsequently moved up to the gold (senior) tees as my average drive is 175-180 (long around 195). The Good:  I am tracking results using a Shot Scope V3, which for shots gained comparison purposes I use a 15 Hcp (my index is currently 22.8) and as of Friday night's round, my most recent 5 rounds indicated 4.44 shots lost to a 15, down from 5.93 shots lost for the first 5 rounds, for an improvement of 1.49 shots. I am now hitting 4-5 greens per 18 and while moving up tees has clearly helped, the quality of my approach shots from 100-160 yards has clearly improved as well.  Additionally, I am hitting  wedges and short irons with much better distance control than how I ended last season and chipping better as well. I remain distance challenged with my tee shots (hence the move up) but get FIR 50% of the time, with misses generally in pretty good shape. The Bad:  Putting is actually worse than last season as I'm now averaging 34.4 putts/18 and about 8 holes per 3 putt. My assessment of my problems is that while "Bead" is pretty good, "Read" is only OK (I read the direction of the break correctly, not the amount) and "Speed" is poor.  Will be focusing on drills to improve "Speed" first and then "Read". Scoring goals: Since moving up tees, I now typically shoot 86-88 so new scoring goal is 82-84 and to break 80. 
    • Meh. 44-49 for 93 at The Neuse yesterday. My third straight round where I’ve had to fight to put up a decent number. I was able to stay around bogey golf until 18 when, for the third time that day, I put a ball OB off the tee and made triple. Not much else to say apart from that except for the fact that I got up and down for par on the par-3 7th after an awful tee shot.  My plan is to hit the range tomorrow and prepare for Tuesday, when I’m playing with my boss and another coworker.
    • Thank you for walking the line without crossing over. I see what you did there.
