It's a multi-post topic.

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.

For distance wedge shots, I suspect it is still arms do nothing. Is it more just less turn to control the distance?

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 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"

Some backswing work today. Trying to stop the backswing shorter and keep the back of the left hand facing away more.

    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing thing you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
    • There's been a lot of stories in the news lately that, because enough people have not been vaccinated (thus starving the virus), we may be headed towards mandates.  Not desirable but the 30% to 40% not vaccinated are keeping Covid-19 rolling right along and harming those who have done their part to help beat down this pandemic.
