My Swing (mvmac)

Inspired by Zeph to share some of my latest swings. I have also been utilizing evolvr and had made a trip to Erie to work with Dave and the boys. My big changes have been getting the hands deep, minimize lifting the arms at P4 and better tush line from P5-7. Erik's probably tired of seeing my swing by now.

NEVER!

Zeph's swing, on the other hand.... (I keeeed, I keeeed.....). You should show people some of the first swings you'd recorded, or even the first swings you had when you started on evolvr. Post those so people can see 'em.

Pfft, please, how far can you possibly hit it with a 1/4 swing like that?

Love it and never thought I'd say this to another man, but your leg action makes me want to cry.

Thanks for the support guys!
Here is a swing that is almost two years old now when I started stack'n. Might be hard to see because of the clouds but the club is way laid off at P4.


The problem is that I tried to learn the swing by myself and ended up overdoing the side tilt and the weight left. So I had to back track a bit to get back to neutral. When we moved to San Diego, I finally got some S&T; instruction and started to understand the pattern better. This is from about a year ago.

I've seen the most improvement with the Golf Evolution program because I feel they communicate to the student how to perform the motions and they come up with a lot of different "feels" and swing thoughts for the same piece. I also like doing drills, and they have many good ones.

Wish it was more like that when I'm on the course. Making it look good to keep the evolvr boys happy

Great swing--I'd be nitpicking to point out any significant flaws. Suppose leg extension and maintainence of the right wrist hinge into follow through could improve a bit.

Yes, absolutely. There will always be something. I am glad I'm starting to see the bigger pieces I needed starting to "stick".

Thanks guys. I also excited for my son's development. He's not the most coordinated kid but he likes golf and is working at it. Keeping it simple, hands in, steeper shoulders to keep everything centered. His tendency is too turn the shoulders level which can get him into a reverse hip slide.

Not a bad swing how old is he?

I'd work on keeping that leg from locking out (it usually straightens some so you can get a full turn but locking out which is what is happening isn't good) but other than that... thats not a bad swing.. how long he been playing or hitting?

I wouldn't worry about that. It's not truly locking out and frankly it's better to lock out than to remain too flexed.

BTW, most guys on the forum here would kill for this:

He's about to turn 12 and just over the summer started to get out regularly. His goal is to play in junior tournaments next summer. I told him that's a huge goal going from just playing a couple holes once a week to playing in a tournament. He loves to practice and he spent four hours last Saturday working on his technique and doing drills. Like I said, he struggles with athleticism and can't "feel" where his body is, so for him to stay centered and get the hands in is a huge accomplishment. He's a very smart kid and understands the concepts. He's learning through hard work that conceptionally understanding the knowledge and applying them are two completely differennt things.

I wouldn't worry about that. It's not truly locking out and frankly it's better to lock out than to remain too flexed.

I totally jealous too! He just needs to do it over and over again.

Yeah, I not worried with the righ leg either, I mean he's 12 and very flexible.

I'm not sure about killin', but I'd slap my own momma for that impact position.

    • Day 1 - after playing 9 holes yesterday (first time holding a club in a while), I hit a few balls into the backyard net focusing on PP or straighter right elbow
    • I got Moderna boostered today! Yaaaay! Now I’m bulletproof…
    • Went to see Dune today.  As a fan of the original book series, I liked this movie a lot. I thought they kept the same pacing, and the important parts from the book. There was a few specific details that were lost, and rushed. I understand the direction they took, being this has to be a 2.5 hour movie that covers the first half of the first book (if I remember correctly). I like the grand scale of the movie, and how they introduced all the major players in the story and did some good world building. Being that, the movie for some could drag a bit. It is not the fast pacing style of movie you tend to see today. For me, I give it a tap in Birdie. I could totally understand some people who might not like this movie at all. Dune is one of my favorite books of all time. I just think the story and characters are really good. I felt like they got a great cast for the movie. Modern special effects really help the world building.
    • Actually not today but last week but my first ever competition. I was good off the tee, not so good off the deck. Putted ok (for me) and played relatively smart. Shot big numbers overall but net 33 points on stableford and finished second in my class. Got paired up with the club champion (plays off +2) and another low handicapper (4) so I was super nervous 😬 but they were so encouraging and patient that I actually managed to relax and play better stuff on the back nine. Really super positive experience. Tommorow I play in the annual club closing tournament: a 1-3 club (depending on handicap… I get 3) team scramble over a cross country course (in vintage golf dress 🎩). Not sure what to put in my bag for this one … I an thinking 4 hybrid (24 degrees), pw and putter but open to advice….
    • Want to sell a like brand new Ping G425 Max 3 wood (14.5 deg).  Seem limited use and the wear reflects that.  One tiny scratch on the bottom of the club but other wise it is mint.  I have a standard Ping headcover and a custom Ping leather headcover I will include with it.  It will have the captured screw with it.  I can include a Ping wrench if you need it.  No trades please. Asking $215 shipped.  PM if interested
