Doing the drill again, calling it the Katherine Hepburn drill because she basically did it in a movie. Thinking less Charles Barkley, more Justin Rose. After doing the drill, swing is a little more free. Getting better at don't think, not natural though. A little tougher to stay in inclination while doing the KH drill, tendency is to stand and also take the club outside.

Forgot to video dtl, :doh:, sleep deprived, forgot tripod, tight schedule, no time. Too much shaft lean? Not engaging core? Will need to setup a short game lesson soon.

@nevets88 we talked about this briefly, but I think most of your pitch is arm driven. You're not engaging the bounce properly as evidenced by that little snag right at impact where the leading edge digs into the ground a little and you aren't really turning a lot until well after you've made contact with the ball.

I think you need more dealing cards feel going back and more float-loady feel in the downswing. Let the pivot swing the club.

Did you do the right hand only pitches?

Thanks @billchao, I did do right handers. I'll post it when there's wifi. 

I agree with you, it felt the same despite trying to engage the core. I'll try the cards and float load next time. I think it's going to feel like I'm going to go right over the ball.

Now that you mention it, it does feel a little like that, yea.

Curse you, now I want to get thee to a range. :-) Good to know we're thinking the same thing.

Sorry, it's hard to explain things I do sometimes, I just do them.

Plus, I'm worried that once I fully articulate how I do something, I'll stop being able to do it :-P

It did? Look at these pictures:

That's not middle.

I agree it doesn't look middle, but at the time it did. I'll move it up.

Full swing, Katherine Hepburn drill is continuing to make the swing less constrained, although there is the occasional stutter doing it. Still haven't attempted to do it with 2 consecutive balls yet, think will probably doing this drill for awhile, all season. Head is popping up, need to stay in inclination.  Also working on trying to stop regripping before swinging, tendency is for the grip to get stronger on regrips. Hard habit to break.

Pitches - put the ball more forward, elbows aren't soft, not hinging on the through swing.

Making good on intention to play more, played 18 today, drove it poorly and short game was pretty bad after the 6th hole, but still shot a 90, almost broke 40 on the front 9. Putting, pitching, chipping and sand game (keep flying greens) primarily the score killers, hoping it'll come back, the playing instinct as I played a lot in the past, trying out "new" moves on the short game shots doesn't help either. Will eventually buy a GG unit. Scoring with the mobile app, 40% battery drainage, 8MB of data usage. Need to feel more step drill turn off brain while playing. Hit 5 really solid shots in the round, 2 drivers, 1 3 W and 2 long irons. Since haven't  been playing much, shots out of the rough were troublesome.

    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
