Just wanted to go through my round of 69 at Whispering Woods to highlight a few things. It was from the blue tees (6500 yards) where we'd held the TST outing a few days prior. Let's take a look at eac

A few photos from my "lesson" with Dave today. Another set of eyes, mostly. Some good swings. Some a bit too fast. But even those weren't terrible.

I'd lost the feels so I went back to exaggerate. These aren't even exaggerations, but they're good. Not worried at all about the downswing on these, and I'm under-turning, too. I grouped the ball

No asbestos necessary. :-) And no, I won't be "releasing the clubhead" any time soon...

Love the clubface post impact.

You should do your swing (or us) a service a post some better videos, all for the learning purpose right. ;-)

It feels like I'm rolling 3 so much in this swing that the clubface can't possibly be less than 45 degrees open at impact. :-) Obviously it's a bit less than that... ;-)



Yea, I don't have to worry about that, lol

He'd probably be okay with that since this is his "My Swing" thread......... so why do you then go on to ask questions entirely about your swing?

umm, look at my first sentence of my post "can I ask you a question about your swing". Im asking what he does from P4 to impact for that charli wi look in "his" swing. I thought thats what we do in "My Swing" threads, is talk about their individual swing.

Maybe he was recovering from a siezure having just watched the video. There should be some techno playing in that old barn!!

C'mon, Aaron. You edited your post. I got the original notification. You asked if you could ask me about my swing, then you asked several questions about your swing.

Ha! That's funny... and the fact that he responded with this makes it even funnier.

Yeah, funny is one way to take it. I'm just hoping we'll move on now... ;-)

Erik,

I've seen in countless posts on this forum, references to shaft plane, elbow plane, and shoulder plane.  You mention here that you prefer that you be on the elbow plane?  The question that I have is for a "traditional" two plane swing, is there a "recommended" plane that one should be on during the backswing and downswing?  Thanks.

I will let Erik answer what is best but instead of looking just at the backswing and downswing planes you should look at impact because that is what is most relavent.  Guys like Furyk and Hass are all over the place but at impact they are as on plane as anyone.

D'oh! :-) He wants me to answer it? :-)

Impact matters. I think my main point, and the main reason why I don't like the hands to get too far up... well there are two reasons. The first is that if the hands never gain enough depth to come from the inside, it's tough to come from the inside. Nobody would disagree that the plane has an inward component. So, okay, you say "I'll just drop my hands onto the plane from above the plane" and while you can do that, and many can play great golf doing that, I regard it as requiring a timing element that's largely unnecessary (relatively little gain) for the risk (relatively tough to pull off) as well as inefficient - any movement not directly down the plane is wasted, inefficient movement.

That's my take on two-plane swings in a nutshell. Did Nicklaus play this way? You bet. It works. It's just not the way I prefer to swing, and for most golfers - not all golfers - it's not the way that they swing best. If Nicklaus came to me, or Jim Furyk, we'd ask them the same question we ask everyone: what's your trouble shot, what do you want to do, and we'd work on the specific piece that helped to eliminate or control that "bad" shot only.

Definitely need to work on not flipping the club. Hold your lag better. Hehe... Just kidding... just kidding. ;-) But a serious question: Do you "float" at all at the top of your backswing? It kind of looks like your right elbow is in a zero-G environment right at the top as you pull it inward right before you drop, but your wrists don't look like they float at all. (Or maybe I'm just confused by the dark setting.) [b]Edit:[/b] Also, is there a normal-speed video of your swing anywhere public? I'm curious what sort of tempo you have, I've only seen it in slow motion.

I don't go in for much of the technicalities discussed in this post. The person your swing reminds me of is Matt Kuchar, just a little flat and perfect single plane. Very nice. Not at all surprised that it produces a consistent draw.

Normal speed? Not that I know of. Don't remember the last time I shot my swing in normal speed...

Float load? A little. Not readily apparent in this video as this one isn't quite a full swing... which is why the left arm doesn't quite get to the shoulder line.

If that's not what you meant by "float" then let me know...

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
