Comparing my Evolvr submitted video from Dec 2015 (left) to yesterday (right). I took these to see how much improvement I have made on my priority piece…getting the hips and shoulders more open at add

Really awesome! Do you get the video of video game version of @coachjimsc swing?

Went to the range this past Saturday. Worked on wrist conditions and arm structure in transition. More external rotation of the right shoulder. Also rotating the hips from the start of the downswing (

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.

Range session last night. Working on the same stuff. 

Right arm structure at the top isn't too bad. 

Trying to squat/turn and get more open with shoulders at impact.

Keeping butt on the wall better. 2016 on the right.

Not keeping hips centered very well with the driver. This is one of those things that if I don't keep an eye on it slips right back to the old habit.

Still not getting back into flexion and open as much as I do when I practice, but I'll just keep working on it.

Haven't posted a swing update in a while. Now that my tournament season is over, its time to get some work in on some of my issues.

I have been working on swinging the arms back with my pivot by using momentum. The more I pivot correctly the better my arms "find" their positions. I have always hated my right arm position at the top and it was verified by Dana that it was causing issues on the downswing. So this will be my main focus for most of the winter.

There is also some Day 3 Covid Plan stuff in here from @iacas

Long way to go.

I was fortunate enough to this past weekend to get a lesson with the AMG guys. Getting measured on the GEARS system is a real eye opener.

I have been having issues with hooks and pulls and consistent center face contact. EE has always been an issue as well.

First thing we addressed was setup. I was curious to see where I was with this as I have seen in their video how that can greatly affect your Early Extension.

As it turned out I was pretty much where I thought I would be…center of hips too far out behind my ankles. What was surprising to me was what I had to do to get the hips over the ankles. And without seeing it live on GEARS there is no way I would have believed that was correct. It felt like I was in my putting stance. Eyes felt like they were over the ball and weight was out on my toes.

This is what the correct posture looked like. Feel ain’t real to the eth degree. Literally feel like my eyes are over the ball from my old stance.

Then we made a few swings from this position and they put the plane of glass on my tush line in GEARS like they do in the videos. In my old setup neither my right or left cheek ever touched the glass after I started my swing. With the new setup both cheeks went thru the glass on backswing and downswing. Started to hit the ball in the center of the face also.

Went spent some time on getting this setup correct where I could do it myself and verified that on GEARS. Shaun gave me a drill that you see in their videos.

Next, we worked on hip tilt in the backswing. My hips were tilting at 10 deg vs 22 deg for the pros with a 7 iron. He gave me some drills and feels for getting my knees flexing properly to help with the tilt. Tested that on GEARS and got up to 18 deg. This is something that will take the most time for me to change.

Lastly, we worked on getting my P2 position cleaned up. Was getting the clubhead too far outside my hands from down the line. Gave me some feels for letting the clubhead pass thru my hands and used LiveView to verify my feels.

Overall a great experience getting on Gears. After watching their videos for some time, it was kind of cool to see myself moving those virtual bones around, as ugly as it was.

What takeaways (as in actual materials, not necessarily physical, but "stuff" besides your memories and/or your own mental notes) did you get?

Video of me doing the takeaway correctly and still photo of the setup I posted.
