My Swing (mvmac)

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.

Finished second in a club tournament this weekend. Crazy turn of events being tied for the lead with two to play, can see the post below.   Sticking with the same lower body feels, on the c

Swing on the left was after a few weeks of playing a lot so earlier this week had to clean up some laziness with my pivot. Green line was drawn just outside my right hip at 1. Can see the trail hip wa

If you follow the swing thread you know I'm always working on getting less shallow/more steep on the downswing but only made minimal gains mechanically. To see if I can really change it I've been want

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.

    • 7 hours ago If Rahm holds on for the win, will he be the first Basque major winner?   No, Olazabal is from Hondarribia right across the water from France ,Rahm from nearby Bilbao .Seve was also from the north coast not sure if it’s classed as Basque .
    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
    • Day 117.  I spent well over five minutes trying to figure out my timing via the tempo app, as per Erik's Covid-19 drills day 8.  I think I got it (85 bpm) and got some practice with that and the app in;  I'll aim to get some video to see if I'm doing this right before doing the second half of the drill.
