My Swing (coachjimsc)

After not being able to do much this fall/winter due to some nagging injuries. I pulled a calf muscle, acquired tennis elbow (from playing tennis for the first time in 11 years) and in general old age, I was able to get to the range this past weekend with the unusually nice weather for Jan.


Continuing to work on the same stuff:
•    Higher hands and closer elbows on the B/S
•    More Ulnar deviation on the downswing
•    Rotate sooner to get shoulders/hips more open at impact.


Posting these videos for a reference point going forward.

These swings are not at full speed. Just trying to get some feels and see what it looks like.

Don't overlook the importance of extending the left knee on the downswing to helping the hips get open.

Extending that left knee and "jumping" is a speed piece.

Understood.

When we first starting working on this a few years ago, it was helping a lot. The big issue was my lower back did not like it at all. So I had to stop focusing on that thought. I tried to do it again this past summer when my back was feeling good... same issue.

So whether I'm doing it wrong or goat humping too much when I do it, not sure. At this point I just can't take that risk.

Unless you have any other suggestions? 😀

Thanks Erik.
