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.

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.

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

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.

    • Just ordered a box of the Snell 3.0's.
    • Take a divot? With a practice swing? Never. So then bunt it, what’s wrong with that?
    • My first suggestion is "play" that hole every time you go to the practice range. Every time you go to the driving range, make that hole your first swing. Pick out a target at your driving range that is 180-190 out and hit that shot as your very first swing of your practice session. Get used to hitting that shot first.  Then set aside approximately a half dozen balls and a few times per practice session, hit that shot again. Perhaps whenever you switch practice mods. Going from block training with a 6 iron to block training with a PW? ... before you do, hit that shot again.  Keep hitting that shot in practice, both when loosened up and when fresh out of the car. It will get easier.  My second suggestion is to make sure you carry a club for that shot.  Get yourself on a launch monitor with your 4 iron and measure front/back dispersion as well as left/right dispersion.  Try out a 4 hybrid, a 5-wood, maybe a 7-wood, maybe even driving iron. You could consider a hy-wood too. Basically find something that you are super confident in. Heck, it could be a mini-driver... No matter what the club is pick the one that gives you the highest percentage chance of hitting that shot right out of the box.  My last suggestion is to give yourself a break on that hole. Re-evaluate what a "good" score on that hole is. If it's a bogey, maybe that's fine.
