Played with the new Hogan irons. They are a club longer on average for me. I will have to get used to that as I hit a bunch of shots over the back of greens. Really like them overall though, the combo set doesn't really even fell like it is one too me. Love having the blades 8 iron and down. I am curious if I would like the BH Icon blades in a 7 or a 6 as well maybe. 

I am working on some things with the swing to get some more consistent face angles held through impact. Swinging the driver decently well, but I am using a completely different swing than my irons for it to do so. One day I won't need to do that is the hope. Can't really hit anything right now after driver until I get to a 5 iron, so I have some work to do.

Huh?

The overtaking, rolling the face in the DS through impact. I've tried to clean this up sooooo many times over the years without ever finding the feel for it. I'm obviously giving it one more shot at this time to do so.

This drill below helped me a lot with the same issue. My Evolvr instructor gave it to me. I do it as a warm up drill. You can do it slow as well. I also do a drill trying to fade or push a shot starting with a closed face. It dials in the feel.

So then work at 60%.

I see where you are going with that, will do.

Thanks, yeah that is one of the things I am trying to do in my partial swings.  It's just the translation to the full swing where I have the trouble basically.

Worked a good part of the weekend with slow motion swings to try and find the feel I needed to get this picture. I can’t do it every time but this was with about a 90% distance swing or so. I can also for the first time in many years, swing a driver with a normal backswing. Exciting stuff for me, but I need to stay with it and keep doing this until I have it down. Ball flight results were great.

Major image change there! good job!

Thanks Matt! Went out and played 9 this afternoon with the feel and I loved being able to hit a Hybrid and a 3W again. I also loved not needing a different backswing for the driver as well. I haven't been able to do that for years.

I think what I am going to start on is going to be the same for me. Swing left for everything, lol.

I am not sure why I am getting this now, when I never have been able to before. Whatever it is, I'll take it. It is going to hard to keep my high handicap if I keep this up.

Looks good man.  The down the line is slightly off center, but I like how you get in a good position to hit down and through the ball.  Nice.

That looks great, but I have questions about the range you're at. It looks like the hitting area has never been mowed, so is it in someone's backyard or something? :-D

I finally get a piece that is something I've been trying to find the feel for, over many years(probably over 5 years, I shouldn't admit that), and you two goofs just want to complain about my camera angle and the grass at the range.  🤦‍♂️  This is why I haven't posted my swing much for years here. 😉

 @DeadMan It is one of four ranges I go to, usually it is a little better.  They mainly have mats there but I prefer hitting of grass with my left wrist/hand injuries.  They basically just mow down some grass there.  Mats can be pretty painful at times if they are the wrong kind.  Why don't you just be happy I couldn't do this move back in 2017, instead you beat me down then and are coming at me again now.  😉😂

    • This shaft seems pretty nice.  I took a flyer on it and got the SF505 (I swing 100-105MPH).  It came in last night and I took it to the range this morning.  I saw on a couple sites people mentioning there was a learning curve and it was true.  I tried using my same swing I put on my Hzrdus green and the ball just took off to the right.   10-20 swings later I was able to figure it out and was amazed at the results.  I realized I needed to just swing smoother and slower and it worked perfectly.  Feels so weird swinging this slow and the ball going farther.  I was on the range so no comparison other that was was visible to the naked eye.  The ball had so much more pop and was flying maybe 10 yards farther.  The consistency was the craziest part as they were ropes directly where I aimed.  Taking it on the course tomorrow so curious to see how accurate on the course it is as well as if I'm hitting from new areas because of the added length.
    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
    • I don't buy that there's only a 0.0001% risk.  Where did that number come from?  I leave my home a lot... groceries, outdoor cocktails (downwind and 10 feet from friends), golf course every day, walks, bicycle rides, a take out burrito today from Casa que Pasa and for gas.  All calculated risks.  It's sort of fun to know... that the next time you reach for the gas pump handle you'll think of good ol' DMM.
    • Viral load matters quite a bit, the pumps are outside, and a bunch of other factors, including that I have a bottle of hand sanitizer in my car. Because, again, 0.000001% may as well be 1%. Why do you ever leave your house if you're not willing to risk 0.0001% chance of anything happening?
