Is the eye line stuff you are working on top secret stuff or something you can share a bit more about. I am not sure I understand how tilting it as you have affects body alignments. Hopefully you are able to share more on this.

Tilting the head to the right gets my eyeline pointing more to the right.  Kind of tough to explain without showing you in person.  Stand up and bring your right ear closer to your right shoulder.  Notice how the eyeline is now aimed right?  This is something I learned last week.  What I already knew about neck tilts is below.

Tilting the head in that manner, also called neck tilts, aligns the neck with the spine.  I think it can help the torso and club to working at the same speed keeping the wedge in a little longer and slowing down PA#3.  Also helps the ball stay in our central vision from A1-A7.  If the head is turned too far to the right, that can mess with shoulder measurements and sequencing the arms with the pivot.

I try to hit every shot with a push draw.  I'm not a Jim Hardy guy, I'm a 5 Keys guy I'm Co-Director in 5 Simple Keys Instruction in San Diego.

Oddly enough, thats what my ball flight amounts to, I try to do one thing the same as you.  That is lifting the handle and not letting the shaft pass the left arm until well into the follow through.  For some reason this changes with the driver, and I hit a push with no draw.  I aim at the left rough to hit to the middle of the fairway, like Trevino, and it has become my most consistant club everytime I set up right.  Do you hit it low or high?  Are the five keys part of your product, or do you discuss them in public?

I hit it medium/high.  The Five Keys is not my product, it's a Medicus DVD and a learning system.  There is currently 20-30 accredited 5 Simple Keys® instructors around the world.... and growing :-)

As you can tell from the thread we can discuss it publicly

He definitely has a really good motion, lots of great pieces on the backswing.  We don't have a model per se, golfers from Jim Furyk to Matt Kuchar consistently demonstrate all 5 Keys :-)

Cool, well I am no expert, and you guys have the data, so it sound like their are no outliers on the tour that have too much lateral or head movement. They are at least relatively still with their head and lateral movement.  I cant tell from watching video.  Thanks for the help. I know flrppers won't last to long on tour, or playerwith poor clubface awareness.

I'm certain there are outliers, but that's what they are: outliers. And there are fewer of them nowadays than in the past.

He comes pretty close to re-centering it by the end of the backswing though.  I'm not a huge fan of his swing though

The camera moves but if you look at the rails in the background, you'll see he keeps his head relatively steady.

Thanks, good find iacas.  Good thing he can scramble, I remember years ago he was working with Harmon.  Apparently it used to be worse,  I just watched some more, even he has done a decent job of getting the head back it impact.  Do you guys think V.J. has too many moving parts, or his swing is too loose?

    • I couple years ago, I built a 48x36 shop at my house and it has a pitched roof that is 12ft at the walls (I think) and runs up to 16ft in the middle. Over that time period, I have used it to do an engine swap on a truck that I had and we have one area where we wash cars. I have finished the swap on my truck and I am debating on using a large area (if not the majority) of the shop as a practice area and I wanted to get input from everyone here on the best setup. From the picture I have attached (it was a quick rendering, so don't be me up too bad on it...haha) I have shown how the shop is setup. To make it somewhat easier to discuss, I broke it up into 4 quadrants. A is where I worked on the truck so that is where my tools and tool box and things stay. B is pretty much open and just houses the golf cart when it's home or whatever needs to just sit. C currently has a friend's race car sitting there but it will be leaving before long. I was just housing it for him. D has a drain in the floor and is where we normally wash cars. I have a television already hanging on the wall in quadrant C.  The original plan was to install a 4 post lift in A, but I think I am leaning more towards using that money for a simulator to install somewhere.  So what do you guys think?  How should I set the shop up for practice? Lets assume I want to have section A available for working on cars and section D available for washing cars. By available, I mean, any practice equipment that is in those areas could be easily moved to accommodate those requests. Nothing is definite really, so just throw whatever thoughts you have out there, please. Shop Drawing.pdf
    • I was playing earlier this week with a neighbor. He and I were paired up with a couple of other guys. They were perfectly nice guys. One of them, lost a ball on the first hole. Oddly, we all thought he striped it down the middle of the fairway, but we couldn't find it anywhere. Anyway, he went back to the tee, hit a drive into the rough, hit an approach into the bunker, blasted out, 2 putted for a triple bogey. He parred the next 3 holes. Made a birdie on the toughest hole on the course (hole number 5). Then par, par, par. Before making another triple on hole 9. He finished the front 9 with a 5 over 41. Which he said was disappointing. I could see why. The triple on the first was bummer (a lost ball we all thought was down the middle.) The triple on the last was one of those hit it into trouble, tried to make the heroic save, got in more trouble, kind-of-deals.  The back nine, all of us parred hole 10, a par 5. (I was disappointed on this one as I reached the green in 2.) 3 putts suck! He topped his drive on 11. He saved bogie. Topped another drive on 12, saved par. 13 is a longish (188 yards) par 3. He topped another tee-shot this time with an iron. Then he hit into the bunker, knocked it out, 2 putted to a double bogey.  Then he took his bag off the cart and walked back to the club-house. He told his partner, he was losing his game and knew it wouldn't come back. So he just left.  His buddy told me and my neighbor that he plays with this guy all the time and that he can't remember how many times this guy has just given up mid-round and walked off. I guess it happens all the time.  We all spent the final 5 holes discussing whether it was better to just "walk off" the course when you don't feel you are playing well. Or to stick it out and try to recover. What do you all think?
    • 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.😀
