If I can just get the club from carrying on that far. It's closer to being where I want it, but it's like a transition timing thing.

It's the best I've seen it "in the wild" (i.e. not when working with me that day).

Consider the rates at which something else happens, like the right arm bends or the wrists. If they don't do "something" early, they'll do "a lot" late. You may find that you react well with an early wrist set or something like that, so long as it moves the sweet spot relatively on-plane. Or an earlier wrist hinge.

Or… just man up (I'm joking, nothing to do with manliness, and I'm half talking to myself) and make your arms move what feels like three inches only, even though it feels like half a swing, and go from there. You'll be surprised every time how "easy" the speed is, how "easy" the contact is, and then a week later, you'll go right back to just swinging way too long again, like a total dumbass.

Okay, I was talking to myself there. 😄

Went up to Erie for the first lesson of 2021! Just a summary of things I worked on.  Setup 1. Less upper body axis tilt 2. Less hands pushed forward 3. Weight more 50/50 Bet

Went up to Erie, PA for a lesson today :) Set up adjustment First was adjusting my set up to help me with my backswing and downswing. More axis tilt away from the target at address. Le

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 hi

Some Video…

Current 6-iron

No arm movement feel. 


Current Driver

Driver swing that feel like they are all turn. Maybe took it a bit to far in the 2nd video. Anything that isn’t this feel the club just keep traveling on further than I want. 


Some notes for pitching…. 
Soft arms, more pivot, keep hands out of it a bit. Can get to handsy.

6-iron - Current

6-Iron
1) Slower backswing to feel the club slowing down at A3-A4
*On a side note, somehow the swing path started to get closer to the heel? I had to start setting up with the ball more off the toe to hit center of club face. Like crazy development. My miss use to be more on the toe side of the club, 

Driver with the backswing aid set up. 
*This made it VERY hard to time up my swing. I use the carry on, and hinge of my wrist to time the downswing. So, I kept hitting a lot of low pull to straight cuts. 

Slow-Mo TEE!! 

 

OK, I am going to say... F*** You golf swing 😛 Just stop the the swing at A4. How the hell did the club get there with out me thinking about anything. Sigh!! 

Like WTF!!! I give up, joking. I almost just started laughing at the range.

Played in a tournament today.

Off the Tee - B-

All but three drives where in play with an iron shot for a GIR. Two drives went OB, and one went into a lateral hazard. 

Approach Shots - C-

Hit very little GIR. I just kept pulling full iron shots left. If I got near the green in two on a par 5 I would duff or thin a pitch. 

Short Game - F

lots of 2nd pitch or chip shots needed. 

Putting - D-

Just lag putting struggles. Lots of three putting.

No it didn't. 😉

Lol, the red painted line says otherwise. It went from OB to lateral hazard. Got lucky.

Re-read what you wrote, and what I said. 🙂

And then maybe this.

I was just making a joke, but… I guarantee your ball didn't end up in a lateral hazard.

DUDE!  You literally created the perfect swing aid for yourself!  I bet you improve a ton with that aid stopping your backswing!

Went up to Erie yesterday for a wedge fitting and some swing work. 

Full Swing
1. Shorter Backswing. Turn carries arms back. Feel backswing ends when has are furthest away from target (shoulder height). 
2. Sit/squat down in transition and then straighten left as left hip goes back. 

Full Swing is in a really good spot 🙂

Pitching
1. Keep head down longer
2. Pivot around left knee, don't let left knee sag/flex.

The SMS wedges? How did you like them? We’re they noticeably different than the Classics?

I like them, but I prefer if they looked a tad less chunky. It’s mostly to do with how they machine the wedges. They performed good on the launch monitor.

Shorter Swing Feel...

More Squat/Sit Feel.. It doesn't look like much, but the feel is there for me. 

Screen Shot 2021-06-01 at 1.27.28 PM.png\

Just better impact position... This will help with consistently, I think I was a bit too close to vertical and my angle of attack struggled. During the wedge fitting, angle of attack was not that consistent for me. Though, I wonder if the machine was reading things strongly.

The biggest visual can be seen here. Way more stable.

Played in a scramble today. Overall the swing was good. Got tired out on the final few holes. got to keep the swing shorter. I got to squat better. 

I did hit the best 7 iron ever. Didn’t go all out. Contact just felt solid. Carried it 187.

Just to expand on the feel. The swings felt more tilt back, head dip back. So, I wasn't getting my weight forward with the squat move, to allow me to turn and extend the left knee. I was more just extending and falling back. 

This sort of thing happens more in my distance wedges where I look up too soon, and I end up fatting the shot.

    • Most of my sensors seem to have stopped working now. I have done the diagnostic and it recognizes them, but when I hit shots it’s rarely registering. Pretty frustrating. I contacted arccos support and they sent me a link to buy more at a discount, $7.50 per sensor. I love the tracking and post-round analysis, so I’ll probably get the replacements. I have 121 rounds and about 2.5 years in on this set.
    • 4 different courses in 4 days. Three I play regularly, the fourth which was today is one I have wanted to play for the past couple of years.  Booked the tee time and was there in plenty of time to get some time on the putting green.  That was the best decision ever as these were the best kept, quickest greens I have played all year.  They had heavy rains last night and that meant "cart path only" so this meant a lot of thinking through the shots and how to keep from having to walk too much.  So how did I do - 44 front, 47 back for a 91 with only 1 triple bogie, 2 double bogies and 3 pars.  With the course as wet as it was, I quickly realized it would be a club up kind of day.  However once in the red zone (5yds or less from the green edge, you could putt at will).  While there were only 2 GIR, I had another 5 nGIR - which made scrambling for par easier.  Total of 33 putts, an all time low for 18 holes!  Like I said these greens made putting fun.  Great round and it has been a fun week of golf.  
    • Still working on getting my hands ahead at impact. Been hitting a lot of short chip shots focusing on getting my hands past the ball before the club head. It works well for short shots and with wedges but having a tough time with full swings. I’m having more luck on trying to keep my right arm bent on the downswing/ through impact with the full swing. I’m going to keep at it because I think my flip/ cast looks less severe so far. Last round I hit irons and chips around the green great but using the same feels with woods was a disaster.           
    • So this is my new “top” of the backswing.    From the hands position and the shaft position I feel like this is somewhere I really like to end up. The shaft is pointing much more towards the target and that’s something that seems to suit my physiology. I still need to get my hips deeper to make sure I can then push back and rotate more through the swing but that’s another element to work on. This position is definitely a position of power for me. The swing caddy might not be the best tool to hone in your carry distances but as I tested it against Trackman the ball speed is almost always very close (+- 1mph) so that’s the data I’m looking at and today I was getting close to 170 mph ball speed with my driver. I will be working on the speed, my general strenght and losing weight over the winter and I also decided that this winter I will hopefully be able to use the trackman enough to really hone in my pitching from the impact/spin control/carry distance. I will be doing this until the end of the season as well but I will dedicate winter for another leap like I did this year and hopefully I’ll be breaking 80 regularly next season (hoping to break it once this season but it might be too optimistic). 
    • Day 33 (29 Jul 21) - 1st time playing a "new" to me course, about an hour from the house.  This was a great day to work on course management as I did not "know what to expect".  Got there early enough to spend a few moments on the putting green - which was key as this course has the best greens I have played all year.  Ball rolled true and it took a good touch to not over shoot the holes.  Back to the course management - heavy rains yesterday made the course "cart path only".   Having to think through the next shot and approaches made this the most rewarding round in a long time.
