I'm not sure we can be friends if that's your swing after 2 years. I mean come on that's just @#$%&!*&. 

Swing looks amazing bud I'm not surprised and I'm very very happy for you. We will have to get out once you crack open those irons.

Thanks bud...I think.  ;-)  I hopefully will bust them out this week for another session.

It could help the wrist from becoming injured again in the same place where I had the surgery.  I am just trying to avoid all of this happening again.  Thanks for the compliment.  

I realize now my post was not at all clear.  I meant the early, full wrist hinge to start the swing, almost before anything else has moved.  Is that what you're talking about?  I didn't mean the little wrap/string thing, which I gathered from your original post was meant to potentially prevent further injury.

Yeah basically I was trying to work on one of the pieces I was working on before the injury.  Which was getting the toe up at 2 to try and help deal with my miss which was and still seems to be over-draws.

Well I have a piece that is a priority to be working on.  No point to just going to the range to hit balls, that is what the course is for.  Trying to get the arms and body working together to reduce the overtaking rate and improve club face to path consistency.

It has been a long time coming but I made my first real swings today in a very long time.  I only hit about 30 balls, but it felt great.  The wrist has some very slight soreness but overall it felt very sturdy.  This was a about a 125 yard ball flight from a 7 iron.  I will try to get to the range a couple times a week and work on getting stronger with the swings.  Swung a couple very easy swings with a fairway wood as well and that also felt very solid thus far.

Not sure how I missed this last week, but...  :dance:

So awesome to see you being able to play a full round. I'm excited to get together to play a round. Was the wrist sore after you finished?

Just a very small amount of soreness.  Felt great overall though.

Two different mini driver swings.  One was a hook and one was a fade.  Only difference in feel was getting the right shoulder to the target quicker on the second swing.   I feel like I am close to a decent driver pattern but still have some work to do. Uploading to evolvr soon.

It is interesting how on Monday I hit nearly every drive well and mostly fades, then this morning I cannot stop hooking the ball.  A different day and can keep the clubface open.  I know the feel I am supposed to use to do it, just could not make it happen today.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I will probably hit the range today and work on my priority piece and hopefully I can correct it.

I did get to the range.  Moved the grip just a bit weaker in the left hand, but basically just worked on my priority piece in the DS.  Felt the hips forward in the BS as well.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
