Looks great at A4!

P4 not too shabby either! :-D

Is this some kind of code.

Pretty much all Key #4 work.

It's not extensor action, though. Right elbow isn't < 90°. It's just letting the right elbow not go so far around near the shirt seam. Too much external rotation of the right shoulder and retraction, overloading #4, etc.

Notes from today:

Feels:

1. A3.1 only
2. Bank right foot to keep going forward
3. Arms down FAST, SMASH IT!
4. Feel palmar flex and adding of lag throughout downstroke.
Progression (due to location of right elbow):
1. Pull-cuts
2. Straight-cuts
3. Pushes/straight-draws
4. Push-draws
Things are okay here. Can load #2 a little faster and counter-rotate a teeny bit more. Club can feel as steep as I want at A3 and it's only going to be on plane. Can ascend a little bit faster. Feeling is to STOP at A3.1.
Things start to go awry (and by that I mean I can play sub-par golf from here, but I want to clean this up) in transition. That's a great A4 for me, but I still need the feeling of loading #3 NOW rather than quite so much before. Getting my left arm down faster will help with this. Continued cross-lateral motion of the hips and increased ground pressure (feel the hip tilts still down and forward from A3.5-A5 or even longer) as the left arm shaves my left nipple off).
I still manage to line things up at A6. It's more of a compensation than I want at this point.
Nice angled hinging on the right, eh? Heh heh heh heh. :P

Messed around with some "Mac"-like swings today. Right foot dropped back, feeling very soft and slow and loose, TONS of "gathering," and then smashing it. Kinda liked it. Not a terrible feeling. Not how I really want to play golf though. Feels like I'm going to fat the shit out of everything. Trajectory is low as heck. :)

Can you go more into getting the left arm down faster?  If your left arm slows down, does this cause you to get too much from over the top as the club is traveling fast with the hands without the arms matching them?

No.

The left arm comes down across the chest at the proper rate. If it's slow the shoulders and hips are too open. The left shoulder is too far to the left so the left arm has to shoot out a little too much (angle DL, left arm too far from vertical).

Love it. Just love it. What is the purpose of dropping the foot back? Anything specific?

I'm against all this figurative nipple choppery. It's giving me flashbacks to Bob Geldof and the razor blade in The Wall .

Where? If anything I'm a bit more open with my feet lately as I tend to get aligned to the right a bit and then I swing a bit more left than I'd like.

Yeah, me too. I'm actually working on feeling it more by extending the right arm sooner, too. Feelings in this area are elusive, but right now it's a feeling of palmar flexion in the left wrist as well as retaining #2 and #3 longer while straightening the right arm quickly.

Not to get too far off topic but more than likely your seeing an OTT motion due to not enough pressure being applied into the forward foot on the downswing.  Towards the end of the downswing, if you imagined you were crushing something under your left foot, you'll flex your left knee, which helps get the hips forward.  Just turning from the top of the backswing will give you that OTT look, so don't do that lol

LOL... Love it.

Slight tweaks:

  1. A3.1 only
  2. Bank right foot hard (feeling of ground pressures in left foot, hip slant feels maintained longer)
  3. Straighten right arm FAST to get arms down (left arm tends to spin me)
  4. That's it. No 4. Pull cuts will turn into push draws eventually or just go pretty damn straight. :)

Great six minutes today. Got some pictures (at speed) that I've never really gotten from myself before.

First the less exciting ones:

ab4d4abd_A2A3DL.jpeg
Two different swings here:
28616465_A4DL.jpeg

Much better view:

093bd538_A2A3.jpeg0056718e_A3A4.jpege9d4f31f_A5A5.5.jpeg539923bb_A5.5A6.jpega0284c34_A6A7.jpegb1f0f499_A9A10.jpegef2fc5c5_AnalyzrImageExport.jpeg

Feels:

  • Get to A2 with the slight counter-rotation and dorsiflexing of right wrist.
  • Roll #3 to A4.5 maintaining width of left arm ("left arm extensor action")
  • SLAM the right arm straight down in front of zipper while increasing lag.
  • Tingly sensation in loins as ball seriously tattooed.
  • Upvote 1

    • Day 655: Spent 5-10 minutes doing my priority piece motion slowly. I didn’t hit, but worked on the feel through to A9.
    • This, this, this, this!!!!!!! All my habits seem to stem from being to comfortable, then I get lazy and bad things happen. Then I forget how to correct and back on the right path. When I finally get it all straightened out, I get too comfortable with swing and away we go again.  
    • More courses off the island: Crescent Pointe Golf Club - An Arnold Palmer design. It's the only Arnold Palmer public course in the area. Interesting looking green complexes and some great views of the marshland. This one looked promising, except the reviews on the course seem to indicate that the course seems to have neglected the upkeep and maintenance in recent times. I was interested in the course but if it's really as bad as people say it is, I'll pass. Eagle's Pointe Golf Club - Another DLIII design. This one is more inland than Crescent Pointe, so the views aren't as spectacular. Looks more like Hilton Head National from what I'm seeing. Seeing a lot of negative reviews about maintenance, too. I think the same company owns both these courses and if I'm going to roll the dice on course conditions being rough, I'll choose Crescent Pointe over Eagle's Pointe. The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes - This course is much more wide open than most of the courses on the island with some interesting holes. Could be a nice departure from playing the others. Hidden Cypress Golf Club - It's a housing development course and looks exactly as you'd expect it too. Well technically most if not all of the courses in the area are housing development courses, but I'm talking about tee boxes right next to people's backyards and unobstructed views into their living rooms, that sort of thing. Looks like decent course though, and it's half the price of the standard HHI courses. Okatie Creek Golf Club - Similar to Hidden Cypress except with more trees lining holes to obscure the houses. Island West Golf Course - This one claims to be designed by Fuzzy Zoeller, but I found a local article about the course that said he was just a consultant on the project and not the principal designer. The course was almost sold to a developer that wanted to turn it into mixed residential and commercial properties, but the residents fought it and it ended up being purchased by the homeowner's association. The course actually reopened earlier this summer after being closed since April 2020 due to Covid and course renovations. It's supposed to be a fun course but still challenging, but I have not found any recent reviews. Oh and there's a double green that two par 3s share. It's really two greens connected by a tail but I guess it technically counts. Back on the island (because I missed this the first time around but thanks to @Friz for bringing it up): Palmetto Hall Golf and Country Club -  Two courses here, the Arthur Hills Course and the Robert Cupp Course. The Arthur Hills Course is currently going through some renovation work on greens and bunkers and won't be open until October. It's the Robert Cupp Course here that looks interesting. Apparently it was designed in the early 1990's on a computer and as a result there are a lot of straight lines and geometric shapes on the course. There are greens and bunkers that are rectangular or square shaped, water hazards with straight edges, and there's even a bunker that's a triangle. It's pretty unique looking and I kind of want to check it out. It's actually supposed to be a pretty good and challenging golf course, too, so it's not just a novelty act. I'll post a drone video of the course in a spoiler below so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. It's not a hole-by-hole flyover. I think that's pretty much it. There are a couple of other courses in the area that looked good, but they're stay and play so they're out. I'll narrow down the list to courses I'm interested in sometime and go from there.
    • I just pulled my max out of the Garmin r10 stats.  I guess if I look through the shots individually they are more commonly in the 81-86mph range.  I must have been really cranking down on it for the shots that were 90.  I can't vouch for the accuracy of the r10, either.  I am an ex-baseball player, if that matters. I guess overall, getting out of the weeds, the place I'm stuck on would be that I don't have a particularly slow swing speed, but I was hitting MUCH better with a senior shaft.  So do I buy the senior shaft since that was what I was hitting better, or do I stick with  the regular shaft and learn to hit it as well as I was hitting the more flexible shaft?
    • 90 mph swing speed for a 7 iron is near PGA Tour average.
