My Swing (nevets88)

Woohoo, played 9 and for once, didn't hit one really awful shot, no earth digging fats, no bone shattering thins, no shanks, no OB drivers. Hit one juuuust off the heel and wound in the green side bunker a nGIR, not very right at all. Every iron went pretty much near where I wanted it to go and hit two controlled low trajectory escape shots which went exactly the height I wanted, 10 feet high and 100, 175 yards. Still shot a 43, a snowman because of a green side bunker shot caught too cleanly because wet packed sand into a bunch of leaves killed me, but that's the short game and doesn't bother me as much. If I had my regular season short game, could have broken 40. Someone mistook my Aimpoint Express finger procedure for Vector putting. Cold-ish weather didn't effect distance much either.

Lesson, more work on no Havercamp on the backswing. Really feels like I'm stretching to the sky and wound up. Feels are sway hips back while left shoulder to ball.

Bought the changes to the course, shot 44 short game rusty, driver was good, much more controlled, pretty much all nGIRs, focused on the one thought, feel that stretch at 4. Getting same distance feeling like less effort although that stretch at 4 takes energy out of me more when at the range. Don't like the chicken wing at 8-9 but will focus on that later, want to make new feeling at 4 automagic.

Quit your job and play everyday and in four months you’d be a 9 😃

You've been away too long @JetFan1983. If @nevets88 quit his job, in four months he might only get two rounds of golf in. Because winter 😜

Last evolvr lesson - get right elbow more in front of body on downswing. This is a 7I @ super slow tempo, probably went 75 yards, but the feel is totally different. Even though it's not a full tempo swing, I feel progressively swinging faster while keeping the same feels is the way to go. I call this the " love tap " drill.

 

Even though that's probably my best P6 position and I know it's supposed to be a powerful position, it doesn't. Maybe when I up the speed a little more.

That looks like a fantastic drill...I've never seen that one before. I have to try that one.

Still getting used to new feel at 4.

 

Looking good Steve. What feel are you using? The one I use is pushing  my right arm down against my left thumb at setup. Then I keep that feel to A4.

Thanks Scott. A lot more hip sway away from target from A1, chest extension from A3-A4, arms reaching for sky A3-A4, head towards target A3-A4. Feels like a lot more torque, stretched out more.

    • Day 160: Played 18 this morning. Driver setup changes made a big difference in performance with that club, but still need to work on the dynamic portion of the change. Scored well, and I think it is a testament to the work I've been doing on mechanical change, and also helped by having a consistent pre-shot routine to commit and execute the swings. Didn't have any amazing shots, but really limited mistakes today.
    • Day 609: Practiced for about 20 minutes today focusing on the hands, same as yesterday. Didn’t film because it was too hot and sunny.
    • Day 240 - Putting work today. Started with Day 11 "Putting Pendulum" drill (about 10 minutes) them hit 25 putts down a 3' line on my PuttOUT matt. 
    • Three months in, so time for an update. When I wrote these goals, I anticipated that I would be playing from the white tees, but have subsequently moved up to the gold (senior) tees as my average drive is 175-180 (long around 195). The Good:  I am tracking results using a Shot Scope V3, which for shots gained comparison purposes I use a 15 Hcp (my index is currently 22.8) and as of Friday night's round, my most recent 5 rounds indicated 4.44 shots lost to a 15, down from 5.93 shots lost for the first 5 rounds, for an improvement of 1.49 shots. I am now hitting 4-5 greens per 18 and while moving up tees has clearly helped, the quality of my approach shots from 100-160 yards has clearly improved as well.  Additionally, I am hitting  wedges and short irons with much better distance control than how I ended last season and chipping better as well. I remain distance challenged with my tee shots (hence the move up) but get FIR 50% of the time, with misses generally in pretty good shape. The Bad:  Putting is actually worse than last season as I'm now averaging 34.4 putts/18 and about 8 holes per 3 putt. My assessment of my problems is that while "Bead" is pretty good, "Read" is only OK (I read the direction of the break correctly, not the amount) and "Speed" is poor.  Will be focusing on drills to improve "Speed" first and then "Read". Scoring goals: Since moving up tees, I now typically shoot 86-88 so new scoring goal is 82-84 and to break 80. 
    • Meh. 44-49 for 93 at The Neuse yesterday. My third straight round where I’ve had to fight to put up a decent number. I was able to stay around bogey golf until 18 when, for the third time that day, I put a ball OB off the tee and made triple. Not much else to say apart from that except for the fact that I got up and down for par on the par-3 7th after an awful tee shot.  My plan is to hit the range tomorrow and prepare for Tuesday, when I’m playing with my boss and another coworker.
