I saw the tweet earlier. I've been doing some drills this evening trying to feel the arms do less. 

The shoulders can do more to raise the upper arms up a bit.

Played 18 today at the PA/OH/NY Meetup (Deer Ridge GC, OH). In general. Didn't hit many greens. Didn't make any putts. Had 4 blowup holes. 

Driver - For the most part decent, though I got in a 3 hole stretch were I would just block the shot 30 yards right. On the back nine I started to just decide to try to swing low left. This helped out for the most part. 

Irons - Not that solid. Just couldn't hit many greens. Shots still feel like I have no room to swing down with my arms. Things just feel stuck. 

Short game - Pretty decent

Putting - Never made anything outside of 5-Ft

Some drive range work. 

1) Need to keep swing shorter
2) Need to figure out timing of squat and left side extension stuff. Right now, when I try to squat, I feel like I don't turn and I fat it. When I try to squat less, or extend a bit sooner, then I just get stuck with my weight back. I think I need to do right side crunch more, and right side through more to keep things turning forward. Then extend. 

This is just an initial swing. Maybe not warmed up as I need to be. Some days turning just feels like a bother. 

This swing is trying to keep it shorter. Also, more right side through feel. 

Yea, here is the driver... I hate this club. So tough to keep it shorter...

Here is the shot that has been bugging me a bit. I feel like I hit a good shot, but it just turns into a big push cut. More cut than push. This was also trying to feel like my arms do nothing at all. 

Another, driver swing where I just feel like my arms do nothing at all.

Here’s the deal Matt. And I speak from experience at both sides of this.

You have to determine how much you want it, and then MAKE yourself swing the right speed back so you can MAKE yourself swing the right length.

Practicing long swings just ingrains it more.

You’re not warming up. You’re practicing. The best drill is doing it right.

One thing that might help for not using the arms is the swing jacket...It Literally doesn't allow you to swing your arms.  

It did work but I have so many other problems I stopped using it.

I appreciated the idea, but I don't think I will be doing that. 

For me, taking the arms out causes my right elbow to stay to close to my body, and the hands start to just go deep.

I agree

I wonder if using a notebook or journal to track my practice would help keep me focused on the process more. 

Something like.

Practice Swing Goal/Swing Speed/Achieved Priority Grade

"Backswing Piece / 80% / B+ Result"

    • Day 38-41 Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever. Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.  Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.  And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground. 
    • Day 126: Some priority piece practice and then a bit of short game practice. 
    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.
