Some pictures from the videos from today's session.

03Meh.jpg

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:

01.jpg

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).

02.jpg

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.

03.jpg

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.

Its nice to see you hitting some quick fire shots - I like to think I'm a pretty good 'practicer' but the amount of time you usually spend on working feels before hitting a ball puts me to shame 😂

Got a few full-speed full swings today. Below is a quick comparison between the full-speed, full swing on the left and a nearly full speed "exaggerated" feeling one on the right.

01toodeep.jpg

A bit too deep here, even on the "exaggerated" one on the right. I like the elbow width more on the right though.

02palmar.jpg

Palmar flexed on the left (it was good for a long time). Too high on the right, but… it's fine.

03shallower.jpg

Easier to manage the elbow, shaft plane when the wrist does what it should AND the elbow doesn't do as much. I don't love the right, but it's much better.

04impact.jpg

Not great. Not too shabby, though.

At the end it looks like you are cupping the left wrist. Is that cause/force you to use the body turn to get the ball started down the target line?

The "body" doesn't really "square" the face much if that's what you're asking.

I tend to palmar flex toward the end of my backswing and then my right hand/arm "push out" too much, and the shaft gets a bit steep.

I'm literally feeling like I curl (arch) my right wrist during the backswing.

Worked on wrist conditions at the top today. Funny how I don't feel like it's any higher, but it is.

I did this a lot in early 2020.

Thought I'd gotten it to a good enough place this year. I clearly hadn't.

Funny that’s exactly what I’ll be saying in May 😉

Just going back to what I need to do. Rehearsing it slowly.

Hands went out a little more than I want here, but otherwise… not bad.

If you look you can see how my left wrist still palmar flexes after the little pump.

    • To your point. He played the first two rounds along side Rory and was ahead of Rory by 10 strokes after the two days. 
    • Just to be clear, you aren't saying that Seve had class, correct?
    • His weakness has been putting, which has been significantly worse than the rest of his game. His game is still good enough to keep him usually in the top ten, with a T31 his worst result the last year. I like watching Scheffler play. As a person he's not the most flamboyant, but he's long, has a complete game and is great at recovery. It was a well deserved win. I watched until hole 14 before going to bed since I had to get up early for work. At that point Homa, Åberg and Morikawa had all made their double bogeys and Scheffler was going steady for the win. Impressive tournament by the Masters rookie Åberg. He seems to have a good head.
    • Day 102 - Pretty sore today, so I made some easy swings working on softer legs at setup and throughout the swing. 
    • Day 122 (14 Apr 24) - Masters Sunday - Took a few minutes to work with 9i and hard foam balls in backyard, focusing on ball position at setup.  More work to be done, progress in happening due to the consistency of the shot dispersion (circle tightening up - side to side and back to front) - given limited flight balls may not fly exactly like regular balls.
