My Swing (Beachcomber)

Since @Beachcomber doesn't post anymore, I'll post for him ;-)

Feeling I suggested was that the wrist angles, especially the right wrist, doesn't change it's flex from A1-4. Right wrist over flexes, left goes into palmar flexion, right arm gets "bunchy" at A4 and then the shaft steepens on the downswing. Much better here.

Who the hell is the freak with his paws on my golf bag?! :beer:

@mvmac thank you for posting a swing and a few feels to consider... I'll work on the right palm/wrist and try and prevent it from overflexing from A3 to A4.  Definitely would like to see that club become more square at A4 and believe you nailed the weakness in your observation.

Sorry about being sporadic on here... Baby and work have both taken a lot of my downtime!!

I know exactly how you feel. My baby is 3 now and it only gets tougher as she gets older.

Long time, no talk. Finally dusting off the sticks and trying to get my groove back. Here’s a few recent swings with a 7i and data from FlighScope. 
 

I’m going to work on some of the old stuff @mvmacsuggested in 2014. 😂

Just kidding of course. Welcome back, man! Fun thread bump. :beer:

Set up with your hips a bit more where the white line is. You're a little back in your heels, so you re-balance toward the balls/toes of your feet a bit.

Q: Is there a tip on how to check if your hip is in line with the ankle/mid sole at address? Is there a feel, or way to ensure your true weight distribution is balanced, and isn’t too heel or toe/balls of the feet bias?

Ok, sorry, I was looking through the thread you shared (thank you!) and just see alignments using software to draw lines to check alignment. I was looking for something a little easier to check without a camera while on the course or range. 

I went deeper into the topic, and found this in Mike’s original post (see attached pic). This gives me a few tips/tricks I can use to judge the setup better using some alignment sticks. 

Interestingly, I just saw a tweet that popped up on my feed with a quick way to check posture and balance too. I’ll give this a try and see if I can nail it.

Hang a club from the middle of your hips near the seam of your pants and it should go through your ankles.

Ok, went back to the basics with my grip, balance/posture issues, and tried to prevent the right arm from getting bunched. Here’s a 7i swing from today which looks a little better to my untrained eye. 
 

Going to keep working on the grip and left/right arm - trying not to go too deep across the chest and over flexing my right bicep at A4
