My Swing (mvmac)


Recommended Posts

@mvmac this (speeding up arms on dowmswing) was my focus with my swing when I mentioned keeping the left shoulder down. My left shoulder was lifting early while my arms were slow down. Any specific feels for you? Are you pulling the arms faster, focused on the butt of the club, etc? Any negative things that could occur from pulling the arms down faster that you should be aware of?

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

Last week did some shot zone collection with Mario on Trackman. Continuing to work on the same pieces with some tweaks to the setup. My typical tendency, too much knee flex, torso bent too far forward

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

Just focusing on moving my arms down towards the ball faster. Like I said in the other post, feel like my right arm is straightening "past me".

Still focusing on speeding up the arms up on the downswing. Also spent some time feeling the right hip "climb" more from 2-4. Hip inclination was getting a little shallow and my hips were tucking under me too early on the downswing.

Swinging at about 60-70% speed on the right in order to change the picture.

Higher right hip at 4 gives me some more room on the downswing to get my arms more in front of me.

Better Key #3!

Haven't filmed a driver swing in a while. Thought I'd share.

Impressed on how you are getting on top of the ball just enough AND already on slight upswing at impact.

Still working on speeding up my arms and improving Key #3.

Feels:

- Big turn and high right hip to 4.

- Crunch (bend) the left hip from 4-5 as my arms swing hard and past me. Another feel I have when I'm doing these practice swing is when I feel the pressure "fall" into my left foot at 5 I'm springing up as hard and fast as I can.

Working on the same kind of feels but opening up more on the downswing. Helps "carry" the arms along with the pivot. It's been much easier to take divots and start lines have been pretty good. Amazing how slow the 2nd and 3rd swings felt, was trying to go 50%, feel ain't real.

Same feels on the backswing, right hip turning up and around but speeding up the whole movement.

Then on the downswing, opening up more with the lower body. Doing this by feeling my left knee move "around". To speed up the arms, I've been making a lot of fast 3/4 swings.

Making sure I keep my stupid monkey badge ;-)

Working on the same stuff as my last few posts.

First few swings I'm speeding up the backswing and arm swing by making 3/4 "fast" swings where I thump the ground. Other practice was feeling my lower body open up more on the downswing. Making sure I do that part slow and hold it for a second.

Swings from today.

Working on a couple things:
- Weight balanced at 1, was getting too much onto my toes.
- Same backswing feels.
- "Crunching" the left hip from 4-4.5 and when I feel the weight "land" on my left foot extend/thrust as fast as I can.

And here's how I'm practicing it.

    • I grew up 30 min from the stadium and would go to 10+ games per year every year as a kid, have been on the field, the locker rooms, offices, etc, have been to numerous playoff games including game 7 of the 2016 World Series. They've been my favorite team my entire life. All that being said, I understand the name change and don't have a problem with them changing the name. Some of the reactions I've been seeing on social media have been ridiculous. The team being called a different name changes very little about the actual team IMO. Given the choice between the Guardians and the Spiders though, I'd probably choose Spiders, just a personal preference. I will say though that I'm not a fan of the logo. I'm not artistic in the slightest but I feel that they could have come up with a better logo than what they did. Hopefully it evolves over time into something better.
    • Much better than Washington Football Team!
    • Same for me on past 3 rounds on my Classic. They said to email them log files but there was no data in the files.  I am awaiting @DaveP043review on GG Pro as that is my next option.
    • It’s not valuable. It’s expected. News flash: the sun will most likely rise in the east today. Vaccines don’t really ever have “long term effects except continuing to protect you. We understand immune response pretty well and you have none of the vaccine in your body after a short while.
