More of the same, got the no hinging at the top grooved. Probably time for another lesson. Better control of Key #4. Also working on staying in inclination, keeping from shallowing out too late and then fatting it.

Baking in changes from latest lesson. Retaining stuff from previous instructors and lessons - shallowing, doing away w/the floppy wrists, and the new piece, which is to feel the head going forward from A4, upper body going before the lower body. It feels like an over the top move, but the video shows it's not.

In the previous video, trying to be stupid monkey by focusing exclusively on syncing top and bottom between A4 and A6/7, but lower body was stalling. After getting more of the syncing piece baked in, added in more bat signal to the sky.

Observations: Now realize how much was adding in a hinge move right before A4, shaft went well past parallel, which made timing the swing extremely difficult. Before the top, more and more the feel is to throw away "the angle", totally antithetical to the lag lovers. When the wrists are not so floppy at the top, found that lag is better "preserved" around A6 w/o trying, where imho it really counts. 

When shallowing the shaft from A4, discovered lower body was going way way ahead of upper, so the feel is to let the upper body go first, even holding back the lower half a little, but then really letting it go after impact.

Same stuff as before, working on the pivot, getting the top to go faster (and/or the bottom slower) from A4, but the bottom to go faster from A6.5/7.

Not sure what your priority piece is now, but it looks to me like you're not getting your weight forward anymore. You were doing a better job at that in earlier swings.

@nevets88 are you looking for feedback or just logging what you are currently working on? Either way's cool, but I don't want to give unnecessary thoughts on your progress.

Would welcome any feedback @mchepp, I agree with @chspeed about the weight forward, the lower body isn't going forward, left and up enough and was planning on addressing it in my next lesson. If there's anything else that's sticking out would be interested in hearing about it.

@nevets88 how about a round before the season ends? Let's see how that swing is on the course :-)

Mine BTW is awful. Haven't played or practiced in over a month. It's going to be a hack fest out there :whistle:

Definitely. Bummer you got bad weather in Florida. Maybe we can even try for Neshanic?

I'm sure I'll shoot 82 at some point or another.

Everything worked out well in the end. We can do Neshanic if you want, I haven't played there all year.

The weight staying back could be a system of where you shaft is during your transition. You may be tilting back to flatten the shaft. Would need to see a down the line version to be sure.

@chspeed, you're right, no key #1, so focused on the pivot, forgot the lateral move toward target.

More key #1, but now pivot out of sync, hands way behind at A6, upper & lower out of sync

Screen Shot 2016-10-21 at 9.25.48 AM.png

Key #1 better, now trying to sync top and bottom while moving laterally, A6 better. Haverkamp, old man finish.

Key #1, sync pivot, more bat signal to the sky,

@mchepp, here are some down the lines:

Lesson - worked on backswing and weight shift/pivot. Backswing - less left tilt, complete shoulder turn, feel a lot less wrist hinge, Pushing up on the follow through got the better weight shift going. Strikes feel better (although motion feels totally different) and looks better too, less contrived.

Still working on pivot, syncing up top and bottom plus smoothing out takeaway from 1-3, getting rid of the overdone Stack and Tilt shoulder down, basically less tilt.

When trying to jump - get hips forward, left and up, from A6, rotation of lower body from A4 happens too quickly., hips "spin out". When trying to slightly delay rotation of lower body, the jump happens too late (face on). Don't know how to reconcile this. Maybe need to feel more external rotation of rear knee at 6, then the jump happens quicker. Seems like trail foot is down too long in face on.

Working on pivot, looking a little better, kept right knee back, externally rotating or felt like it while left knee externally rotates, hip forward, kind of like dropping a big ball between the knees, then push forward and up.

Misinterpreted instructor's hold the trailing knee back, it was keep it from collapsing as it and the right side was collapsing as well, cleared things up, pivot better, top and bottom better synced. Now working on arms straight after impact, don't pull arms across body while retaining previous stuff.

    • I played my second round of 18 holes in over six years today. The other time was in November 2018 when I was in severe pain. I shot I think 91 that day? Anyway, it's not a day I want to remember frankly. Today on the other hand, is. I shot an 85 at a course I've never played before despite hitting five balls OB off the tee with driver. We played the white tees which are 69.6, 125. The course is part of PGA National and is named the Estate.  I got up and down over and over and over again all day, at an unsustainable rate frankly. I was getting up and down from really brutal spots too, but that just goes to show how terrible my full swing is. Oh well. I'm trying my best.   I hit a couple drivers before teeing off and here's what I'm packing if anyone was interested in seeing. Like I said, I hit five shots off the tee OB, including from the first tee, which is always fun doing in front of a bunch of strangers who will never see you again.  Anyway, I'm pretty excited I managed to shoot 85 in spite of getting zero favors from my full swing. I was hitting my driver only 220 most of the day. I hit 2 or 3 about 250, but most were around 220. My worst ones went like 200ish. Pretty brutal. All my OB shots were short pushes that flew maybe 200 yards before disappearing into the void forever. Anyway, it's a start. I've done so much rehab, needle work, and exercise these last 4-5 months (and really the last 1.5 years). My body felt pretty amazing out there. Very very little pain. This is a wonderful thing, and I do not take that for granted. I worked so damn hard to get back here. This was golf day no.17 for me since returning June 14th, and I have now played 54 holes total in that span. So I want to remind myself just how little golf I've actually played and that being terrible at the game is pretty much what I should expect at this point. 85 in that light should probably be considered good I guess. On a side note, I think this was my dad's and his friends' first time ever watching somebody play by the rules of golf or something. They were shocked how I refused to mulligan it up with them. I think maybe they learned something about the game from me today in that regard, in a good way.  85 at an unknown course with five OB tee balls. Fingers crossed I can clean that up soon. Otherwise, it really is amazing to be back finally.  Heard this one on the ride home and I think I'll probably always associate this song with today.  Cheers, guys. Thanks for reading. 🙂
    • My goodness, now I understand the comments on my swing back then… oof. Makes me wonder what I’ll say about my swing today in 5yrs.  What I remember was that I was -5 when you conceded. 😉 I’m trying to stay positive. I was definitely bummed on the overall loss. 
    • Day 22- random iron practice and some block practice with the driver (which is a strength of my game).  Finished with short game practice chips and putts to mimic real play. Great session for me!
    • I can't play alone anymore. I used to,  but now I feel that alone rounds are by definition practice rounds, and I think my practice time is better used on the range, or practice green, etc.  I have lost interest in just  social rounds, with nothing riding on it. Ditto for getting paired up with random folks, no patience for it.  I might feel different if I could treat  round as truly a practice round, and throw out extra balls, or take multiple shots from the bunker, or tricky lies, or short sided lob practice (or whatnot).  Courses are busy these days with little time between groups so practice is not practical. Plus I can't record solo rounds for HCP purposes, so grinding out  great score is moot, or the alternative also, I suppose.  I honestly don't know, do really skilled golfers play solo rounds? Honest question, is that the path to better golf?  If it is, I need to adjust myself so I can do what it takes. I've read that when tour pros play practice rounds, they do it in groups and have $$ riding on it, true?
    • I think it's being overlooked that If lateral relief isn't possible, there are two remaining options, back on the line as well as stroke and distance.
