My Swing (mvmac)

358 posts in this topic

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.

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
