My Swing (mvmac)

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 😛

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.

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

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.

    • You might get a lot of different answers to this question. Here's what I might suggest as a starting point.  1 lesson every 3 to 8 weeks. During each of those lessons you should get some homework... i.e. something to work on until your next lesson.  Spend at least 5 minutes a day working on your priority piece. Which means what ever piece your coach/instructor gives you to work on. You can spend more than 5 minutes if you have the time, but 5 minutes each day is way better than 60 minutes every 12 days, if you catch my drift.  Take what you've learned to the range every week or so. Depending on what your time and budget allow. Get video of what your range sessions look like and send those to your coach for comment.  You can also video your homework and send those to your coach for comment. Just to make sure you are doing it right and you are on track.  Then during your next lesson, you will be given a new priority piece to work on.  Rinse and repeat steps 1 through 5.  This is by no means "THE PLAN" but I think its a good starting point and its what I'm trying to do and I believe it works. Obviously, real life can interfere from time to time. Don't beat yourself up over that. Just get back on track as soon as you can. By the way, if it isn't fun and/or you aren't improving. Talk you your coach/instructor.  Cheers and good luck. 
    • Day 29, 1/20/2022 Another busy day with family obligations and all day meetings. But on lunch I did my mirror work.  Once again, I started out with no club.  Then I did a split grip on the piece of 1/2" PVC pipe.  Then I did a club across my collarbone. I finished up with using the club with my standard grip.  I was also able to get some nice putting "Bead" work in. Basically I did Day 15 of the Covid-19 practice plan. That went very well. I hit very few gates. 
    • Day 43 (20 Jan 22) - more work on the setup with the 6i in the backyard.  Focused on what happens at and after impact by working keeping the turn happening.  Finished up by making mindful swings with the iron and the hard foam balls off the tee - again working to bring the upper torso/shoulders on around.  
    • Serious question related to this.   I am thinking of talking to my golf pro about a plan for this year.   I don't want to set a handicap goal because I'd rather see what he says to work on and then do my best to follow the right amount of structured practice and play. That said, what is a realistic amount of instruction and practice time to properly make some improvement?  I'd like to set my own expectations for what is reasonable, how many lessons, the frequency, etc.
