Ballistic. Heh. Wiseass. ;)

Definitely looking forward to earning some paint this summer. Lost weight? A bit. 15 pounds or so. The running is helping.

I think so, sure. It's just a 6-iron though.

Can you go into more indepth in the visualization of this feeling? What you do mean by slam?

It's not a visualization. I know what I mean, and that's what matters, right? :) I mean slam the right arm straight in front of the zipper.

Sorry.

I played nine with a friend yesterday. He said that my swing looked different.

You know how someone's swing tends to look the same even if they take lessons, improve pieces, etc.? They still look the same?

I asked him if that's what he meant, and he said "no, I couldn't identify you from a few fairways away. You look like a completely different guy swinging the club."

I'm taking that as a compliment. I'm playing better - I still get some weird shots when I do 2 of 3 things right not the third (for example) - and I know I'm on the right path.

Erik,

What is DL? Down Left?

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Yesterday was, by far, the best ball striking day of my career. It coincided with an average putting day (I missed some makeable ones, but sunk two that I was just trying to two-putt). I controlled the curve, contact was good (except one tee shot and two fairway bunker shots where the ball was 1/4 down in the sand - maybe I should have bladed them?), trajectory and distances were nice. Ivan was in town and he said to me "your swing, it only goes to A3 now." He also said I'd obviously picked up some distance. This kind of stuff, like what I said above, makes me really happy. It's rare for someone's swing to change - even over 20 years - let alone in a few years. The work I've put in is paying off. Go me. ;-)

Well, I still have the original videos, if that helps:

You guys are being sarcastic, right?  Oh well.  If not, the right arm pretty much only has three possibilities in the golf swing:  arm extension/flexion, forearm extension/flexion, upper arm adduction/abduction.  Allowing a 3rd action of "disengaged", you get at most 3**3 or 27 possibilities.  Just figure out which ones you need and don't need by the pictures.  It's pretty simple.

    • Day 162.  I forget if the official rules (the first post doesn't say) include golf-focused working out, but I'm counting it.  Fit for Golf, in-season, "workout #3."  Substituted barbell press for dumbbell press, as I was doing the largest dumbbells I had and easily getting to 15 reps before.  I discovered I may have been doing press wrong for quite some time after watching Mike's video, so I reset to bar (first set), bar (second set), bar + 10 lbs (third set).  I haven't picked up a golf club today other than for stretching / dynamic warm-up purposes. 
    • Day 9: Did some driver practice; static stuff and then some almost golf balls working on dynamic stuff. 
    • Prioritising driver practice in the last 4 weeks or so is part of a practice plan I've been implementing to get better. And I really feel its starting to pay off. I just had my best ever round of 9 holes yesterday evening with a 40 (daily handicap is 15 at this course so its not particularly challenging), and on the weekend I broke 90 for the first time in competition with a 89 and 35 stableford points (playing handicap 17). I went through a period of months using my woods off the tee, but after doing a lot of reading into strokes gained and similar stats I'm now convinced in the merit of gaining distance off the tee as opposed to just focusing on hitting fairways.  My driving hasn't been amazing, I'm hitting less 40% of fairways, but most of the time its staying in play or at least giving me a chance of advancing my second shot closer to the hole, and overall is giving me a better scoring average per hole compared to my woods. My good drives are getting around 240m down there, compared to about 200m with my 3 wood. I'll keep working on my driver with a lot of block practice as I feel this is the best way to utilise range time - simulating tee box conditions is a lot more attainable on the range than continually playing approach shots off a perfect lie, which Im finding has much less transfer to my actual game. Correlating to my scoring improvements has also been putting in hours of short game practice. Im making more up and down, and am not afraid to miss the green anymore. This has also been huge. So at the moment my practice can be divided up like this: Driver: 50% Approach shots: 15% Short game: 35% Putting: to be honest - 0% lol. In fact, Ive felt just not overthinking my putting has helped me.
    • Day 21: Today was two separate sessions, morning and evening. The morning session was 3-9 swings only, but getting in the delivery position, "pumping," and then going to the finish. Foam balls were used and then real balls. I was concentrating on solid contact.  In the evening, it was more 3-9 swings, a bit longer than that actually, but a bit slower speed. I was concentrating on synchronizing body rotation and hand movement. 
    • I assume you've already checked to see if there is some sort of calibration that can be done to the unit to verify aim?
