What do you mean by "sag" in your knees? Why do you want to remove it?

Cuz this is too much:

It'll slow his pivot and is just unnecessary - if his knees sag more low point control is more difficult.

Continuing to work on a slower loading of the right wrist bend and good turning rates.

Really like how this piece is changing. Earlier swings would go from 70-80 degrees at A3 to 90 at A5. Obviously doing the opposite here.

Video above is the last swing I recorded in two weeks, seriously. Very rare for me but really haven't felt the need to see it because I've been hitting it well and I'm getting ready for a tournament next week. Playing with my dad, it's an alternate shot tournament. Practice round Wednesday, qualifying round is Thursday and then you play matches against other teams. So hopefully I won't be back home until Sunday ;-)

Played in the TST SoCal outing last week and got some of the "rust" off. Some good swings, some crappy ones. Most of the bad swings were due to second guessing myself. Putting was improved from the last SoCal event I played in, it would have been impossible to putt any worse ;-) Played Monday in a TaylorMade media day and hit it better than the day before, more comfortable over the ball and speed control was really good on the greens.

This week I mostly worked on hitting shots on the range like I would on the course. Going through my entire routine before every shot, picturing holes, certain shots and trying to put myself in pressure situations. So I might pick a green on the range and get very specific with my start lines, I don't curve it much so my misses tend to be start line issues. I'll hit 4-5 shots at a green where I'll imagine water is on one side, or a bunker, final target is the center of the green, or maybe left center if the water is right. Point is, it's helps me build confidence and it's something I've done since high school. Played nine last night and my start lines were really good. Playing 18 with my Dad and son tomorrow.

I've also shortened my practice waggle, just taking it to A2 now instead of A4.

Good stuff, Mike.

And good luck in the tournament with your dad! :beer:

Cool to read your preparation routine.

Looks awesome!  Wish I was even capable of taking that short a back swing...

Dad and I played really solid in the practice round today, played alternate shot. Entire course is only on 90 acres. Love the course, old school look, small greens, tight off the tee, not very long (6600), sets up good for us. Got to play with some buddies from NorCal, so that was fun. Qualifying round is tomorrow.

Thanks, posted a couple pics here http://instagram.com/mvmac01.

They have a strict cell phone rule so I won't be taking too many pics ;-)

North County San Diego is surrounded by fires, all the schools are closed and I left my family to go play golf, think I'm using up all my husband points this week :scared:

We qualified for match play! Dad was nervous at the start of the round but he ended well, we made a nice birdie on 18. Alternate shot is tough, he thought the greens were faster than they are and left me with a lot of 3-4 footers but he didn't miss a fairway all day.

Hit it my driver and mid irons awesome. From 100-120 yards I was horrible. Hopefully can knock a few close tomorrow.

    • Would love to but don’t think I’ll be back in the NE until May timeframe. I did AimPoint Express a year ago and I think it has been a huge help for me. Been wanting to do a refresher.
    • Ha. He has always seemed as a doofus, and every now and then he confirms the suspicions with stuff like this.
    • Great post here even if it is from 2015! So I guess I would revise my consistency goal to something like "improve my poor shots and reduce the dispersion in shot results, in both distance and direction".
    • +2 on a quick 9 today. Pretty easy course although no roll in the PNW off season. Used only 4 clubs for a fast getaway from the house and a bit of a challenge. Rangefinder would have been useful.
    • As the calendar year draws to a close thank you all for putting up with me, and allowing me into your insights. The golf posting season is now ended but play continues on for my second winter (it is awesome!). This year has been good for me although I still have things I would like to correct. I am in awe of all of you that work diligently on your swings. If I ever find an instructor like my first, and find enough time to add practice I will join you in that quest. For now I love to play too much. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
