Ok................ so to hell with all the above. I felt completely lost today. So, I went back to my “roots” of thinking only about the leading edge of club face being parallel with my lead arm at A4 and swinging through with a feeling of throwing everything at my target. Played 9 holes with that and actually felt good again and shot a decent score.
I think I try to play too much into instructor Phil’s game that I forget how to play golfer Phil’s game. In short, I get in my own damn head way too much.
I just sent an email to the fitter, i dont know if he'll look at it or if it even helps at all but we'll see...
Just trying to help the process, but if you rather all the information in person you can just ignore this email.
I was fitted into the TaylorMade Sim driver a couple of weeks ago and after 5 rounds and quite a few range sessions i just cant dial it in and when i do find the sweet spot, it goes the same distance as my old driver. My main hope is focusing on carry distance, i dont care as much about maxing the roll out. So im wondering if maybe i should go back to a higher loft. I was also hitting a fade in the fitting bay but when im out on the course i tend to hit a little draw with both my drivers, that's interesting. Maybe im just having trouble lining up my feet and shoulders in fitting bay, i dont know. See ya soon
I fed the mosquitoes today. I didn't want to get bored just standing there, so I decided to hit some golf balls.
These are all the pieces together. Honestly I kind of stopped thinking about the left shoulder/hip back piece, and I haven't worked on it in a while. I think that was the easiest piece to incorporate. Still doing the laid off shaft move via transition. Doing that simultaneously with the right knee bend move. Invoking my inner Justin Thomas.
Need to make sure I don't feel the arms lift in my backswing because they lift enough on their own. When I feel them lift, the hands get too high, and when the hands get too high, they sometimes don't come down enough and I top the shit out of the ball.
I think these swings are good. Need to keep the little details in check. Right now it's small stuff that's making a big difference in how I strike the ball. Don't lift the arms. Knee bend instead of squatting. Looks like the club is tipping out a little bit. Explains why I'm hitting cuts. If I keep the hips moving the hands won't roll over and I won't hit hooks. I'm perfectly happy with that.
