Note for the backswing hip turn. The trigger for the downswing hip transition might feel like I just increase pressure in the lead foot. Don’t feel the hips gain extra turn just for the sake of using that momentum to turn forward. When practicing my backswing I can feel myself want to gain extra turn to trigger the downswing turn.

Yay range session. 

So, not as much success as I want. Hey, I got a bit of success, or until I get corrected 😁.

The process was.

1. Focus on posture at set up. Hips less back, weight more in center of feet. Just adding this in as something easy to do.

2. Make a backswing not letting my hips gain a ton of turn. Feels like I brace  the turn against my left leg, I get a bit of stretch or resistance in my inner left thigh. 

3. Finish backswing earlier, bit easier with less hip turn. In the video below, the carry on took the club to a good posit at A4, not crazy long. 

4. Trying to bring hands a down to my right pocket.

The major difficulty is 100% getting my hands down in the right way. They just like to pause at A4 and get carried out with the turn.

I thought I work on a bit of backswing length stuff to get more of a feel for it. Restricting hip turn, and feeling the swing stop a tad shorter. Not to bad. Disregard downswing stuff, I had zero thought on it. 

I did work on the downswing stuff a bit earlier. It is a bit tricky for me right now. Still much more work to do.

Tried slowing things down and piecing things out for the downswing piece. I would take the club to A4, pause everything, drop the arms down and then start turning. The pause felt like a solid second or two of pause. 

Here is one more ramped up not feeling much of a pause. I can see the hands starting to drop down from A4, but then gets carried out to much. Just got to do it more.

 

On a side note, doing this works the crap out of my forearm and shoulder muscles of my right arm. I may need to supplement this with some left arm exercises later 😛

Some notes….

For timing of the hands down stuff, slowing the hands and club into A4. Like at A3 the hands are moving slowly and coming to a slow stop at A4. It seems to help give me time to trigger the right arm down.

Fast early, backswing is "done" by A2.5.

DTL Drill 

DTL 7 Iron - I just had to get a few swings in where I don't focus on the transition stuff. This was more focusing extending the left leg much sooner in the golf swing. Really pushing off with the left foot. It feels like I start pushing off like at A3

Ok, so in review. I just got to do this slower and figure out a feel that works. Not sure if I need to pause at the top, like pause the body turn as much as possible. Because once I trigger, I have no time to feel anything.

Current swing thoughts while playing. 

Swing to A3, stop turning when left shoulder reaches chin.

Feel a pause where the body feels coiled up, then swing through.

GEARS session today up in Erie. 

Updated Priorities.

1. Keep swing shorter, and less bend in right elbow at end of backswing (sub 90 degrees). Hands feel higher, club feels pointing up to the sky more. Feeling like my right palm is pushing away from my head, and resisting the club at A3-A4

Right Elbow.jpeg

2. How I use my hips in the backswing. I need to slide to my right side, and then use more internal rotation of the right hip to send the hip back and up. This keeps the right knee facing forward more, instead of having it rotate out. I also need to pause at the top of the swing. This is to help get a better syncing of my sight shift and turning for the downswing.

Not really a "pause" just "stay right longer." You're still moving the whole time, and it stops you from shifting forward early, slowing down, then having to "re-start" the forward shifting.

New routine for the course.

Take a practice swing for backswing length. Come down to ball how I want to present the clubface. Make swing matching backswing length and then presenting the club face to hit the target line I want. visualize hitting the ball at an alignment stick. When I focus on target line I hit some really good shots.

    • Of course. I've used different words to start, but like 90-95% of the time it's been this one. And I'm unlikely to switch now.
    • Welcome to TST @Camjr.   We're glad you've joined.  
    • Angle is not a factor. I hit the ball 100’ high. Par is net birdie. My CH is 16. The rough between the bunkers is like 10’ wide though. That’s not something you’re going to try to hit on purpose. Most of the area to the left of that is fescue/native vegetation and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a flat lie in any of it. It’s the second hole.
    • Hello all.  I'm about to be 57 yrs old, started playing when I was 16, and have quit and restarted the game more times than I can count.  I had started playing a weekly round with a friend, and finally made the jump to Senior A shafted Tour Edge clubs.  Instantly gained 10 yds with an easier swing (why didn't I make that jump sooner???).  Glad to be a part of the group. Cheers all,
    • I think I like this hole.  It is a clear "Risk-Reward" choice.  Since most of the shots in your cone cleared the bunkers I would say they are a minor risk and not a big issue.  Playing the aggressive line may give you 70ish yards in from what looks to be playable rough while conservative play is 120ish from fairway.  I know you said 70 vs 120 is minor for you but how does the approach angle in impact your results?  I figure both strategies are playing for Birdie since holing out from either is mostly luck. Looking at your proximity hole I think it says @ 50 feet when hitting from the fairway from 100-150 and 40 feet if hitting 50-100 from the rough.  Neither of those is an easy birdie putt.   I like the approach angle from the rough between the bunkers & the adjacent tees over the angle from @ 120 in the fairway but I really do not like the idea of hitting onto the adjacent tee boxes and that may impact my confidence with making the shot.  Also, too far left may be a worse approach angle then from the fairway short of the bunkers. For me this may come down to how confident do I feel when I reach that tee box.  If I am stroking it well off the tee leading up to the hole I would try for over the bunkers and the better angle in but if I am struggling that day I would likely opt for the fairway to take more bad stuff out of play.
