My Swing (saevel25)

Played halfway decent in Wisconsin. For the most part I was able to put a good stretch of holes together (8-10) and be making pars or a birdie or two.

Still had some big misses, mostly a big push or push cut. Rarely I would hit a hook.

Just some video...

This video is a weaker grip, just right hand more on top. I just try to keep my focus on the ball a lot more...

Face on view... Not with the weaker right hand. 

 

Right now my misses are...

1) Thin (either playable, 1-2 grooves, or just a flippy thin shot)
2) Straight draws
3) Big push cuts

Got to Figure out a way to be less in to out?

Played 9 today. 

had my best off the tee nine holes in a while. Weakened the right hand slightly so fast the right thumb feels more on top of the left thumb and less off to the side. It helped me feel like I could swing out at the ball better.

Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots. 

Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks). 

Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course)

Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn. 

 

On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.

Was on vacation, and played 18 hole scramble with three of my friends (two who would shoot 120+, another was his first time out). We played 5700 yards (67 rating) to let them enjoy the course, and to keep pace of play up. I was in Myrtle Beach for the week, and just out to have a good time. We finished in 4h-20m, on a difficult course. Like 72 rating from 6650 yards, with a rating near 130. For some high handicap golfers, first time playing in SC, we did good. The 5700 yard course had a rating of 67. 

Here was I try to do. 

1. Like previously, just less of a turn on the backswing to keep things more compact. Arms don't carry on forever. 
2. Fling club out at the ball. 
3. Belt buckle towards sky in finish feel. 

Overall, good strikes. Some irons were a bit to hook-ish. Driver was really good when I decided to hit it. Hit some of the best iron strikes I've had in a while with some effortless distance. For not hitting the range in two weeks, and not playing 18 in two weeks, pretty good stuff 🙂

Short game was really good, putting was solid. Yea, with out expecting much, I was happy with the swing that showed up, lol.

You don’t play golf in a few weeks and bad habits come back. Mostly club getting stuck behind me. Swing length felt good, more compact. 

at this point, I want it so my swing doesn’t revert to a hook swing if I take some time off.

was able to get the flight back to being more neutral so that was a good thing. Mostly arms up more as I turn. Did that for a hybrid and stripped it. A few holes back I snapped hooked a 3 wood 70 yards right to left.

Went to the range after a bit of a hiatus...

Just me trying to make the swing shorter and more compact. Less shoulder turn feel, hands down sooner. 

Grip looks to be way to strong here, thought the camera angle is a bit towards the back foot instead of center of my stance. Same feel as the DTL above. The more compact my swing gets in the backswing, the more I don't tend to have knee flex through impact into the finish.

Played 18 for the first time in a while. Was trying to find face to path control early on. Putted really well. Short game was OK.

My swing feel was bending my right elbow and wrist sooner. Keeping my right arm more in front of me. I found that I never felt stuck. I flushed some irons with them going close to on club further than I was use to. I never really hit a ball that curved crazy offline. Just some slight pushes or slight straight draws.

God I need to learn how to fix the block right on the course. I just can’t seem to stop pushing it 40 yards right. 

Get a video and post it. I bet you can see why.

And if you can't, I bet I can see why. 😄

Some videos... As usual, the intermittent block right did not show up much as they did on the course.

 

The Pull Shot

This one, I did a bit more of the less knee sag through impact.

 

Here is the driver. I really do hate this club in how (insert choice curse word) difficult it is to keep the swing short.

Okay.

Stay a bit wider. When you get narrower, the wrists collapse, and then when you tip under on the downswing sometimes you don't roll the forearms over quite right, so you push a block out there.

Driver - Good push draws versus high block cuts versus low pull left.  I only hit one low pull left. Strange contact, low on the clubface. No snap hooks. 

Hybrid and Woods - Got into a middle stretch of the round and topped the tee shot like 3 holes in a row. IDK why, to flippy? I felt like I stayed down well, swing felt not strange, just topped them. My hybrids were mostly push cuts. 

Irons - Few chunks versus good shots. The closer my irons got to wedges the more I tend to sky them. Like 1.5x optimal height. Got the trajectory back down when I tried to bring my hands down my toe line. Figured this out later in round. 

Short Game, good

Putting, excellent 

Will try to get some range time in this weekend to work on swing.

Are those at Fox Den in Stow? My parents house is 5 minutes from there, that's the course and driving range where I learned to play.

So, it might be time to shut it down for the year. Right now, my lower back (L5 and lower) is flaring up badly. Each morning that area is just on fire right now. It tends to ease up with in 15 minutes, but I am getting a good amount of sciatic nerve pain, luckily most of it is at hip height. I read that the lower the sciatic nerve pain goes down the leg the worse it is. I am going to be getting into the off-season exercise stuff, and try to PT this away for next year. This is the first time that a back area flare up hasn't gone away in like 2-3 days. It looked like it was on that path till it locked in, and how its been on and off for the past 2 weeks. 

Here is to looking forward to 2022!
