So I just signed up for these since the instructor I work with is heading off to a better life the end of this month.  My question is when I got my video back I was told I need to get my left arm out and down more but, not sure how to do this.  It would be nice in the lessons if they could do a video demonstration of what they would like to see or a way to communicate back and forth.  Not sure if I need to shift my arm down or out or both and how to do it without causing harm.

I've been using Evolvr since February / March of this year.  I've made some nice progress working with the Evolvr team.  My recommendation is to send a note back to your instructor and request additional information.

Again, going off of my own personal experience working with the Evolvr staff has been solid.  The responses that I've received from their team (mvmac) has always had my swing compared to a professional - or ideal swing to memic from another player.  And then pulled in additional video links with drills that can help with hitting the proper geometry / feels.

Regarding the left arm... Are they talking about A1 to A4 (Backswing) or A5 to A7 (Downswing to Impact), or A7 to A10 (Impact to Finish)? If you can comment on that... I'm sure that there are plenty of users here on the site that can help point you into the right direction (using your swing thread) on how to get the left arm in a better position.

a5 to a7 i've always had the issue where my left arm stays glued to my chest then I have to tilt my shoulders to get down to the ball.  Something I've done for ever.  I remember someone posting a video on here about a pump drill but, couldn't find it.

We'll have an answer for you shortly.

This site isn't evolvr, even though Mike and I (and Dave sometimes) post here. It'll be faster if you write to evolvr@thegolfevolution.com .

I think you are talking about this video:

I made a thread somewhere about "getting your hands down too quickly" and too slowly (or something like that) that I'll try to find. I may edit this after I see your evolvr lesson though. I don't want to give you the wrong stuff.

Hi Poser,

You're doing great and are on the right track.  Sorry if there was any confusion with the analysis but I'll just reiterate what I said in the video.  Left shoulder stays low longer from A4 down, back stays towards the target longer while your arms move down so the hands are just in front of the right thigh at A6.  Mikes video above is exactly what you need to practice regarding the "pump drill".  And try that other drill I gave you with the glove under the left arm.

Great video.  Thanks for posting.  I think I've seen the guy in this video before?  Not sure where, though?

Men's Fitness magazine, I think.

I also wrote the article on page 65, that's why I talk so much on here about thrusting the hips and extensor action

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
