Eek. Had almost forgotten about that video.

I should note that one of the reasons I put up that video is because it's exaggerated and the "drill" like form it's in. Most guys struggle with getting the shoulders to turn steep enough and not get the hands in enough. I like the simplicity in what Erik's trying to feel. Super connected and super deep.

Updated swing, 5 iron.  Trying to keep my head on the "wall" from P4-P7, instead of staying in extension and raising my head.  Done some good work on P1-4, getting better with staying in inclination and the next part would be the right knee/right foot banking.

Been awhile since I posted here, still a work in progress Feeling a little more right wrist bend at the start of the back swing(from P1 to P2) and just keep my pressure points on P4.  From P4-6 press into the ground with my left foot as the arms lower( release PA #1 and 4) and then make sure to keep the rotation up as I continue to go forward.  Right leg stays bent for too long and still flexes towards the ball too much, but better.

Great swing man, you've come a long way from your original video in this thread (and I'm sure even farther from your swing before that).

Yes that will always be the feel for me and that's what is getting that left arm better at P5-P6

hehe good one.  Yeah, handicap really hasn't changed since April, don't play enough to make it change, I'm just a range rat now lol

But definitely hitting it better than I was in April, I just remember struggling that month with ball striking and we can see from the pics I had some issues.  I also feel my swing needs less maintenance now and I have a better idea what I need to do to hit it good.

Thanks, I would LOVE to have some video of myself in college or even high school.  Up until my junior year I swung past parallel with a 7 iron.  Funny thing is my handicap was lower!  But I was playing everyday, compensated well, curved it one way (pull cut) and had a decent short game.  But no doubt, I hit it better now than I ever did.

Working on some good stuff.    Some old feels mixed in with some new ones.  On the backswing I tend to get the clubhead a little in and low from A1-2.  Some guys can get away from a not so perfect A2 but in my case it can start a chain reaction of compensations.  On the downswing I've been getting too much rotation and the club has been swinging too far to the left.  Doesn't match up with what shot I'm trying to hit, a high push draw.

mm swing A1.jpg

Making sure my hips and shoulders are aimed slightly to the right.  Butt of the club pointing at my navel on the dtl view.  Tilting my head 5* to the right to line up my eye line with my body alignments.

mm swing a2-a3.jpg

Hinging the left wrist much more so the clubhead ascends up the plane line, not under it.  Need to have zero right wrist bend as I push the grip end down as I load PA#2 (left wrist hinge)

mm swing A4-A5.jpg

As I continue the backswing, not allowing PA#3 to load (rotation of left forearm) so the shaft doesn't get shallow.  Want the lfeshy part of my left elbow to point towards the sky.  It it gets too shallow, I'll have some run on at A4.  Arms keep loading while the pivot stops.

From A4-A5 keeping the hip and shoulder slant feeling steep to keep my inclination to the ground.  Don't want my chest to raise.  Right leg feels straight to do this.

mm swing A6.jpg

If the shoulders and hips can stay steep, then I can rip PA#4 down and feel like I hammer the ball down in the ground and keep the right forearm tracing baseline.  Good feel or visual if that the left arm is chopping off my nipple to hammer the ball.

Blue line represents address knee flexion, so my knee is kicking out too much towards the ball.  This hinders my ability to fire the arms down because I lose my inclination.

mm swing A7-A7.9.jpg

Would like to see the right forearm tracing baseline, this is where I tend to miss it off the toe.  Good pic on the right though, the flying wedge stayed in longer than some other recent swings and like how the right foot is banking.

    • So there's a booster for Moderna now? I thought they were saying the Moderna efficacy didn't drop like the prize one did? Like Pfizer dropped to 70 something but Moderna stayed in the 90s after 6 months?
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap! Thanks for posting. First, you are flexible and look pretty athletic, which helps. In the down the line swing, you can see you are coming in a little out-to-in or over the top, which can lead to the pull slices you mentioned. In the face on, you can see you also flip a bit, as you mentioned. You don’t shift your weight much forward during the downswing, which can cause this. Below are a couple of threads. First is the Five Simply Keys thread, 5SK. The 5SK are the common things all good golf swing have and is not a swing method, but a guide so to speak. Key 2, for example, is weight forward at impact. This may be something you should look at. There are video drills for each Key in the thread. The second thread was started by the site owner during the pandemic lockdown last year when courses were close. It is an excellent collection of drills to work on. The first five are full swing drills. They start with backswing and go through impact. Proper backswing sequence and position can help set up a good downswing sequence. Check them out. Lastly, We like to get to know our members here on TST and one of the things that helps is when members choose a unique avatar for themselves. Please add one (here's a guide to help if you're not sure how).    And we have lots of other topics here on the site. Check them out as well and join in the conversations.  
    • I don’t know enough about it to answer intelligently, but it seems a bit different  than what my instructors want me to do. An example is the long arc drill where we try to slow down release or wrist turnover through to A9 and keep palmar flexion a bit longer. This would keep the face open longer. For me, it may be because it would help my face to path be more consistent at impact. It seems to be a timing scenario if you let the face rotate freely. I think it should be ‘happens’ but training it with gate drills for start line may help. if I use my ‘spirit animal’ PGA Pro example, from my Evolvr instructor, I would say the number would be a lot less. It’s hard to tell from the image below, but it looks like Zack’s face is more closed at A6. So basically, I will do what my instructor tells me I should do.😀
    • Been around for way longer than that pre 1900 The Urquehart -  Antique Golf Clubs from Scotland: Clubmakers  
    • 9 handicapper myself and a certified club ho for many a year! Personally I have played 735cm's, many versions of Hogan Apex and modern Hogan irons, Ping G's, I's, S's, Becu's, the lot! Maxfli A10'S, Maxfli Rev's, Taylormade, Adams, Callaway, Macgregor, Wilson Staff........basically the whole damn shaboom!! Decided a few months ago to make the game as easy as possible. I picked up 5-pw Cleveland HB Turbo irons, Callaway 50*56*60* Mack Daddy CB wedges and a Ping Craz-e vault 2 putter. Threw in a Taylormade Sim2 3 wood and a couple of Ping Karsten hybrids 4+5. Tell you what give the Cleveland HB Turbo's a chance, IT IS LIKE CHEATING. Great length, good trajectory, can get some gentle fade or draw movement with a little club face manipulation.  If the technology was there a few hundred years ago they would be the norm!
