Some pictures from the videos from today's session.

Getting to the top better (I wouldn't mind if it was like two inches shorter, but it's not too bad). Then the right elbow stays bent far too long, the face twists shut, the hand path goes out, and I have to do some shit to keep the club from tipping out too.

Some better swings later on. This one has a small twist to the face but it's not too much. It's just after the start of the downswing and you can see the club being thrown behind me as the right elbow extends.

The next few frames:

Am I as forward or as turned as I will be in motion? No. This wasn't super fast (medium speed or so).

WIth a driver, the backswing is also looking better:

The downswing… is a bit better. Still a lot of work, but again, they're familiar feelings, so it's not terrible. I'll get there.

Practice from the 12th (backswing work still):

Some images:

Wouldn't mind the left arm to be out a little bit more here. Like the left wrist staying what feels very cupped (slightly strong grip = cupped a bit naturally).

The backswing can stop a bit shorter, but I'm okay exaggerating to check in the mirror where the shaft goes. Then, though I do some downswing stuff, it's still mostly focusing on the backswing. I only really make downswings because backswings only would be really annoying. 🙂

I like that I've preserved the cupping to the top, and the face falls "open" on the downswing.

Pretty happy with these too, even if my "pump" is too high.

Why am I focusing on being so cupped? Because as soon as I push down/away for the downswing, my wrists almost always naturally do this:

You can see that while I palmar flex the shaft steepens a ton (it's too shallow there, too, so that's some of it). At any rate, I have to get to the top and still be cupped so I can palmar flex on the way down.

It's still December, so I'm going to stick with the backswing stuff primarily through maybe mid-January, and then focus a lot on the downswing stuff.

It's all stuff I've done before (2019 into 2020), so I can do it.
