With the club being completely closed now it's actually an opportunity to get in some focused practiced on changing the picture. Doing that here, making sure the early shift is good, right foot firmly pushing outward to get the right side climbing and heel off the ground on the backswing.

I have a better/bigger net that I can hit real balls into, been only using it inside and will move it outside when my mat gets here, which is now two weeks delayed and expected to be delayed at least another week. I guess golf mats aren't that essential right now 😛

Demand has skyrocketed for golf nets and mats lately.

Facetime session with Mario today. Last week working on adjusting the grip more towards neutral to get the face less closed at 6. Other than that just sticking with the same stuff.

- Early shift right (left pic), club and hands not moving, then push outward and unweight the left heel. Re-center is better with the pelvis.

Few things I like:

- In transition starting to see elbows separate a bit, sign that the trail shoulder is getting some retraction

- Club is less closed at 6, help with the left misses and wrist extension on the downswing

- Knees square at 5, torso "closed" to the pelvis

Camera angle is a bit off on the face-on but trending in the right direction.

Working on:

- Slightly strong grip (weaker than before)
- Same pivot stuff. Early shift right/club and hands not moving, push outward with right foot and "unweight" myself.

Do you have any numbers re: things like hips open at A7 or anything like that Mike?

My numbers? Or something else?

My checkpoint is that by 5 I get my hips back to "square" (orientation at 1) or close to it. Just drew a couple lines on my belt loop and pocket at 1 as a reference.

Yeah, yours. Just curious if you knew what your hips were at ~A7.

From the visit with Kwon, looks like I'm in the 30-35 range (10 BI).

Just updating, Mario video basically says it all. To clarify, I'm not trying to take my left arm "in", it's more that the hand path doesn't pitch outward on the takeaway, which means that I'm using the body to move my arms/club and applying a little force against the grip. 

Hitting it well overall, best I've ever hit it in our session last Thursday, was just flushing it.

Hit balls with Mario for about 45 mins, no pulls or pull draws (miss on the course), hit it great.

72, 76, 68 last weekend, unfortunately the 76 was a 3&2 lose in our club match play championship (not club championship). Lost to a good player just played sloppy. Had a good talk with Mario about it today, explained more in the video below. Also included lesson review from last week.

Mechanics wise, basically same stuff I've been sharing from May. 

- Heel stomp and push outward
- Land forward with chest "closed", hands up (stretch)
- Get into right side bend as fast as I can 

 

 

 

Compared to early April. Shaft closer to my right shoulder.5.jpg

Really like this, deeper left arm at 56.jpg

Less knee sag.7.jpg

Some practice after the round today. Face-on below isn't as good with the legs as the last swing I posted but really happy with everything else, especially the handle at 6.

For your practice routine, which by the way I started doing yesterday and it had an immediate impact with my irons and fairway woods (specifically off the ground), but not so much with the driver or fairway woods using a tee.  I only had one round to practice it since my range was closed yesterday so had to work it in to my pre-shot routine, but could feel what I think you feel based on the drill itself, but need more range time to get the turn more in sync after/with the weight shift.

Do you use the same drill and/or feels for driver/fairway's off the tee, meaning do you feel the same weight transfer and/or position or do you adjust something when hitting driver/fairway's off a tee?  Thanks.

Oh yeah for sure, same feel.

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.

It's amazing how different these two pictures feel.

Then had this round on Sunday.

    • So I just bought another Titleist Players 4 and realized that my previous bag was a 4+ (which I think is now the 5). The Players 4 is tight and will only be used for travel.  The extra room of the 4+ really made it a better bag. 
    • Yes, time for an update.  I added five courses this year bringing my total to 444 in 32 states and 16 countries.    I also try to track courses I have played that have hosted these events:

    • I'll echo my previous pst in this thread, I have a Ping Hoofer.  My previous Ping Hoofer lasted 8 years and was perfectly serviceable, I expect this one to be durable too.  The bag sits fine on a buggy, it has one of the new-style "cart strap" channels.  It stays stable on my QOD motorized trolley.  Its NOT the lightest bag available, but its not too heavy unless you put too much stuff in it.
