L arm closer to body, lay down shaft on DS, keep L wrist facing sky post impact. Focus mainly on L arm.

Looks like a real gloomy day there!  Looking good. Are you doing any palmar flexion from A4 to 5 or is your right elbow helping lay down the shaft?  I ask because I am working on something similar.

Thanks. Not trying anything w/elbow, but trying to keep L arm closer to body may be doing something to elbow. With the lead wrist, yes, palmar flexing - swing thought is to make the clubhead stay behind me. Like the drill @iacas has prescribed to others here where you lay down the shaft just after starting DS. The feeling is that but even more. The more rotated I am @ 7, the more that clubhead feels behind me if I do it right. I'm not posting here all my crap swings there the hands go out and clubhead coming at ball from outside.

Getting a little better at combining shaft shallowing and pointing left hand to sky and long right arm post impact.

More open @ 7, no EE, but can't get L hand to point to sky, long R arm.

Thanks! Thinking hips forward up and left as well. Setting up another lesson with Preston.

Another productive lesson with @pcombs21 , get thee to Metedeconk, tri state area. Got path going out more to right, both iron and driver. Was getting mostly + path numbers towards the end maxing out around +5 and the dtl positions look better as well. Start of lesson was around -1, -2. Got a SAM putt lab analysis and altered path and face for putting stroke. Better aware of the putting stroke now, especially face to path during impact. Should have gotten the SAM analysis a long, long time ago.

Since last fall, basically more shallow from 4 and rotated at 7. I think the more rotated look at 7 is a good thing, 2 years ago, was basically throwing hands at ball at 7, arms fully extended. I think the more bent my right elbow is just before 7 and then a really fast extension post 7, w/hips more open while keeping inclination to the ground is a good thing.

Combining shaft laydown, L arm to body @4, long right pitch arm, L hand to sky post 7, don't hinge on BS, arm swing/less shoulders 7-8. Stand closer to ball. Looks funky. Hips backing up. Addressing issue w/Preston.

New things to work on from Preston. Working on backswing and flexion @ 7. Undid closer to ball. Starting shallow move earlier on BS, feels like cupped lead wrist to bowed from 1 to 4, staying in flexion @ 7. Slow easy swings so far.

Working on maintaining flexion from 6 to 7. No more wrist bow like in previous vid.

Think I'm bringing head/upper body closer to ball before start of downswing, so that leaves no room and spine straightens going into impact. Will try and get the feel of head moving to ball after the downswing.

Tooled around w/the head toward ball pre A4 movement, forget about it, just sticking w/basics, good A4 position, lay shaft down, retain flexion, left hand to sky, working to feel as comfortable w/driver as w/irons.

Start laying down shaft before 4, no arm overrun/shorten BS, left arm close to chest on DS, retain flexion, left hand to sky/long right arm (no so much here)

Lesson with @pcombs21 - worked on full swing overall and tweaked the driver. Improved swing feels like shoulders opening sooner, more "on top" of the ball, kind of over the top-ish.  Clubhead is taking a more direct line to the ball from dtl view. Retained flexion better w/o even thinking about it.

Almost 2 years ago vs yesterday:

Haven't been playing very much, been a range rat and it shows. Can't quite bring the range swing to the course, especially with driver, really losing flexion from 5 onwards but I understand it's a process and takes time. Will start playing more and working on the driver - start lines and making it look like swing on left pane. And will try and video more course swings.

Course driver swing - shallow BS, steep DS. Right to right. Ewwwww.

Tried to do opposite at range afterwards, w/shoulders opening earlier and start line straight move from lesson.

Course and range swing very different.. Both thinking same pieces to work on. Course swing thought is right shoulder out, forward and down to target and more around, rotate. Range thought is the same, plus start line piece. And butt to wall behind, head to wall in front, anti-ee.

Notes to myself driver swing:

Takeaway from 1-2.5 wonky. Lots of space/air around left armpit. A bit lifty. Noticed this immediately after watching the swing vid so tried to keep L arm pinned to body more on takeaway for remaining drives - accuracy and distance stayed the same.

From 3.75 to 4, there's a steepening move, not a laydown move. Think this is because too focussed on getting the R shoulder out, forward and down to target and around and more over the ball.

Length of backswing much better, no arm runoff, extra wave. Maybe even a touch short. But same BS with shaft shallowing instead of steepening probably optimal.

Head is moving off the wall in front quite a bit. This is a thing w/swing. Accept it and minimize it. Almost all good players do this. Less so butt moving off the wall behind. Posterior remaining close to wall behind pretty good here.

Estimate that if swing was measured by radar, the face is around -2 to 2. Path is closed to face,  fade bias: 0 to -4? Don't care if fade or draw. As long as fairway is hit or have a playable approach and decent distance. This swing, face probably -1, -2, path probably -4?

Where to go from here. Keep the feel that is getting start line much less right. Stop steepening and do lay down move from 3.75. More head closer to ground feel. Scrunchy. Take more videos from tee. New priority piece next lesson.

Still not swinging all out, but close to it and feels like sequencing can be much improved. Way fewer unplayable/lost/OB drives now. More distance to be squeezed out hopefully. 3W and 2H off the deck way more playable as well.

High frame rate

Normal frame rate

Trying not to tip under.

    • In 30+ years of playing, there have only been a couple of people that I've felt like laughing at.   One was "Howie" who was the most depressing person I've ever met.   Every word that came out of his mouth was just so negative and down, not angry, just absolutely Debbie Downer stuff.   After a while it was just so obvious that I couldn't stop thinking about it and every time he said something, or hit a bad shot, I had to turn away.   He was a horrible player, or at least having a really bad day. But...the other person I've felt like laughing at, several times, is my father-in-law.   We don't speak now, but that's because his wife has ruined everything (although he's pretty bad himself now).  However we used to play golf a lot.  He's got that slow burn like Judge Smails from Caddyshack.   He's fine for a while, but when it goes off the rails at some point he loses his ****.  We were playing a course and I was having a really good day, and he wasn't.  He started crabbing big time on the 11th hole when he was in and out and back in (multiple times) a huge horseshoe bunker around the green.   I knew it was coming after that.   Duck hook off the next couple of tees and he finally lost it on the 14th tee.   He duck hooked it after 30 feet into the weeds in front of the tee box.   Then he comically threw his driver in after it and had to find it.   This is after a few holes of hearing him beat himself up, muttering and complaining.  I was trying my hardest not to laugh all thru the 14th hole, somehow made par.   Then I started laughing on the 15th tee and blew one OB.   It's just comical watch him come unglued.    He pretty much hits a big banana ball.   So he aims left.   It comes apart when his miss is to roll his hands over and hit a low hook.   So frequently he is aimed left and then hooks it left, usually into a bunch of trees about 60 yards off the tee.   He'll do it like 8 times in a row.  It's funny up until he says things like "I'm just the biggest idiot who ever picked up a golf club", then I start to low grade feel sorry for him. OMG, yes.   I admit if I lose a couple of nice balls in a round I start to go looking when I have time, but never at the expense of the other players.   Last month we saw someone fishing for balls on #10 and the three people he was with just left him and started to the next hole.  Don't blame them. I never comment on someone else's game.   If someone if a good player, I don't mind hearing something they notice is wrong, but I don't feel qualified to comment on what someone else is doing nor do I think most people want to hear it.  Especially since I've seen some really weird swings, yet these people know where the ball is going and score well.
    • For me was when I started hitting consistent playable drives from the box.  
    • The worst for me is subtle directed drops of tips/hints or what "his pro" told him..when he is a worse player than you..far worse.  From what I've learned over the years is STFU and play.  This post refers to my first round after years away.  We were playing in a foursome..work group.  One of the youngest guys in our group..all decked out in Dry-Fit Nike Golf/X-Armor (or is it Armor X) down to the TW golf shoes.  He starts marking his ball for alignment and said I should also do this and that it helps with putting..LMFAO..I just smiled.   He saw my bag (I have mostly Mizuno/Titleist stuff)..he said the best driver are Mizuno...LMFAO again..just smiled.  As we play, he was constantly reminding the group what he was putting for (this is for par, birdie, etc..) which became annoying after the 2nd hole..yikes.

    • KIT FAQ'S | Full Swing Golf Frequently Asked Questions Presale FAQs No. Reservations cost $100 for each model.  Yes, reservation fees are refunded with reservation cancellation by e-mailing kitsupport@fullswing.com. A reminder at this... @david_wedzik and I put $100 each down on a pre-order and our "exclusive" pre-order window opens the 25th through the 27th next week. We're looking at dropping $3899 (each, if we want one each like we had planned), and I'm not sure why I'd drop that — or even another $1899 — when the Mevo+ does those 16 things. The bold in the list above are done by the Mevo+ (as well as "Flight Time" and "Shot Shape" and "Spin Loft"), and so the Full Swing Kit adds… Club Path (likely measured), and then two likely calculated data points in face angle and face to path. I haven't seen any reviews of these things, of course. I don't even know if they work indoors to start, because elsewhere in the email, it says that a software update will be available to enable some modes in Q1 2022, and it may have implied that this included indoor mode (but may have just included E6 integration? I can't be sure.) It requires ten feet behind the golfer, while the Mevo+ will work with seven to eight. Has anyone seen any good reviews of the thing? Harry Brandt is getting one tomorrow or the next day, though, so I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
