Swinging harder/faster

Goes right

Goes way left, like OB OB left, but at least not stalling out, shanking. Staying committed. Bowed the wrist too much, face is so shut at end of swing.

Straight-ish, a tad left

Straight in 240

Head translates back around A3 to A4, could keep head steadier, extend back more going to top. A little too much rollover post A7? Could do more bat signal too, trail foot should be more off tippy toe off the ground at finish. But heading in the right direction I think.

Some of the best swings I've seen you make, great work Steve!

Thanks! Looking at the DTL again right shoulder's high, but small steps...

Troublesome longer clubs tend to stall, extend arms early, not keep rotating, hips go too up, not staying in inclination. Focused more on staying in inclination, pop/push up a little later while rotating. Need to feel more motorcycle too. Cannot go at full speed yet without throwing out angles early.

Variability of practice. 

3H push cut, top of BS, old habit of loosey goosey at top, a touch of over hinging and steepening probably the culprit. Maybe a touch steep at A5.

 OK, get rid of loosey goosey at top, tighten that transition, still a touch steep at 5? Still right to right but very playable, maybe cuppy impact, man I wish I had that Golftec 2 angle setup all the time. Having more flexed wrist at top, harder to flex it coming down because still not used to it afraid of left to left.

Keep tight transition, flatten that shaft (sure did, it's pointing way outside ball at 5), starts right coming back a little left.

Want to pull that mat more back to see clubhead at A8 from FO, but not sure how staff will react.

Want to dig into the ground more for leverage and power, but not yet.

Getting swing w/long clubs to look more like swing with shorter clubs. With driver fewer idiot marks when pinning lead arm to chest on the downswing, minimize dropping of arms, which steepens shaft and also stalls turn. Also the feel of the wrist bowing through impact is more extreme. A little old man finish, but feeling more of a stretch on the backswing, less bending of lead arm more extension of back.

Looking pretty good to me. To my eye, you are doing my priority pieces pretty well, so I'd kill to have some of the positions you're hitting! Namely, these two:

Seems like you lay the club down pretty naturally. I need to get to the range next week to do some slow-ish swings before I ramp up the speed. This is a good reminder!

Thanks! It'll still get steep, especially when going past edge of ability, swing too fast, so I'll do that lay down move @iacas and @pcombs21 showed me plus get the pivot sequenced better.

Variability in practice:

Something funky about this backswing. Too flat? Heel contact. 

BS more on plane here, looks more like stock swing. 

Not straightening arms post impact, usually get a higher ball flight when this happens. 

Straighter arms here. When thinking arms straight post impact the problem is will straighten arms towards ball not target. Getting better at not doing this by pinning arm to armpits but the problem with that is arms can get too behind. The better thought is arms straight, but suck keep upper arm super attached to shoulder socket for lack of a better term.

Turning better with the driver. Gets sloppy at A4 with the hands, steepens a little, need to shallow shaft and flex wrist just a nudge. That's minor compared with pivoting better, syncing top and bottom and more rotated at impact. Lots to go to make it more athletic.

More adduction of left shoulder ~4, more down and around/cover, while maintaining adduction. It's a bit fat, probably needs more arms straight post impact with added lead arm supination and guessing release that lead shoulder adduction and more trail shoulder adduction, otherwise, more wipe. Funky angle, forgot tripod, balanced camera on club stand.

Looking pretty amazing - just that weight forward to look at! What are the bad shots currently? Great work :-)

Thanks! Generally right or fat.

Got too focused on rotation to the detriment of weight forward, Key #2. Low point was moving back from target. Noticed top half was lagging behind bottom, so more "stacked" and lateral, thought was to get top half more on top of ball. A combo of holding back the bottom from rotating just a smidge at 4 but letting the top go forward, and more right side bend while shallowing, motorcycle and lead shoulder adduction. Strikes are more solid, low point more forward. Hands covering more of the thigh at 6. More reverse C at 8. The tl;dr is weight staying back, got flippy. Fix is more stacked.

In previous range sessions, hands were just barely getting to the thighs, today, here covering half of the trail thigh. Guessing it should be harder to fat it from here.

More SAT, Key #2

A little too focused on FO views, will have to do DTL next time. This is why I mess the Golftec setup.

What the ****, I'll try that Rahm shot it might come in handy someday. It tends to go right. And it the wrist hurts on the follow through. With the catch and this I think the pro is giving me the stink eye, YOLO.

    • Maybe manners are in shorter supply in general, but we still probably do better on the golf course than a lot of other places  Two that come to mind real fast are grocery stores and on the road.  The worst incident I ever saw was during a club championship four or five years ago at my old course, Kittyhawk. Two of my fellow C-flight players had to be physically separated after an accusation of cheating. Nobody got hurt, but the accused cheater wasn't seen again.  The people at my new course are shockingly nice. Everyone from staff to regular to random are very polite. I have yet to see any significant incidents out there.

    • Day 121: Lesson this morning. I've kind of managed to quiet my flip at impact with better palmar flexion, but still have have to improve delivery/impact. First thing was my instructor had me try were some stance adjustments to help with hip motion; a slightly open stance and/or opening my feet a bit (more bowlegged), which felt a little odd at first, but pretty quick adaption after a few balls. I will experiment with different degrees of both and see what works best. One of the feels we worked on in the lesson was a super exaggerated move toward the target with the lead side (but not head), kind of like the Smooth Criminal music video dance but to the side. In slow rehearsals this made me feel like I was going to fall over, but when putting this feel into a moderate speed swing, it improved delivery/impact position. Over the duration of the lesson I got pretty good at doing this with 7-iron. I really struggled executing this with hybrid. When I get hybrid, 3W, or driver in my hands, I often rush transition and overswing, so I need to work on smoothing the motion out with the longer clubs. I'll definitely spend some time working on longer clubs this time around.
    • Are you using the Ghin for maintaining everyone's handicap? If so, the adjustments are indicated for the players. Also, what scoring system do you use? Spreadsheets are a good manner and can be customized to meet any requirements.
