Trying for more weight forward and turn. Definitely felt like more turn.

Well if you tilt the camera like that, you’ll definitely get your weight forward!😜

Getting right hip to be feel more over the left foot at A9 (and to the left in general) plus right knee kicking in more towards left knee (post A7) seems to help with rotation. Feels like I can turn top half more/better and in sync with bottom half.

Same stuff as last time, hands faster, more weight forward and turn. Not as warm as the forecasters thought but I'm not complaining.

Same stuff. Arms faster, more rotation. Harder to weight forward because arms get left behind. Also worked on downhill stance because that’s usually when I shank I think because backswing goes outside and downswing as well. Once I get plane okay need to think arms faster.

Your swing is better than mine. Play this summer.

The changes are apparent Steve. Keep working on it and bring it to the course.

Nice work. That has to be by far the best swings I've ever seen from a 20hcp.

Not used to this setup, feels claustrophobic and afraid to swing out. Need to break out the PVC and the alignment sticks, especially the front one. Pants are dirty from gardening.

Oh and the net, I thought I was buying a golf net, not a soccer net. Jeez. I don't think it's big enough.

After your first shank, you’ll appreciate how big it is!

Center the net to the ball and not your toe line, Steve, or you'll start subconsciously training yourself to hit pulls.

Still rusty and getting adjusted to surroundings, still not comfortable with swinging hard, feels like a closet, hands are a little higher at 4, still flippy around 8, would like to see hands go higher and right after impact. Fighting path going left from 4, one of the few decent swings I made here.

But at least I broke out the PVC and alignment sticks. Will place them closer to ball as I get more comfortable. Oh yes, I centered the net to the ball, thanks again @billchao. Need to check if I can use the Mevo, not sure if I have enough ballflight for Mevo to read.

I use my Mevo on my net setup. I have seven or eight feet before the ball hits the net and I have the Mevo set to pitching I think, with the dot on the ball. It doesn't register shots sometimes, but it does that at the driving range, too.

Set to pitching. I'll give it a go, but there might not be 6 feet between the ball and the net. Can't hurt to try. Thanks!

Pitching? That's for shorter distance shots, not shorter… distances to the net, no?

    • Like @Chris BrooksI also get coached by Erik so I mention that as a back drop to this.  I'm directly stealing this from @Chris BrooksImprove driver speed to a 105 average by August 1, 2023.   I will use The SuperSpeed system as I already have it.  Goal is 105 by August 1 2023, just like Mr. Brooks.  I'm turning 52 this year. So I'm much younger than Chris. 😁 Even so, 105 average should be attainable. I average better than 102 right now. I too, will strive to get to 105.  I'm also going to include a stretching program (which will be monitored by my 8 year old daughter) to help me get there. The stretching should also help me as 2022 was the first season I can remember where I've had so many injuries.  Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts (I did not steal this one from @Chris Brooks, it just so happens I need the same thing.)  Current overall stokes gained are -2.5 putting, –2.56 on 0–10 feet. (I'm actually gaining strokes on 10-30 feet.) when measured vs a 5 HCP. It's actually pretty close to the same vs Scratch.  The goal is getting to even SG vs a 5HCP.  Improve my wedge play.  I would say the one constant in 2022 was that my wedge play was bad.  My stokes gained 50-100 yards against a 5HCP is -1.7 The goal again is to get to even SG vs a 5HCP.   I like what @saevel25 does with his habit goals. I would like to incorporate some of that into these goals. Especially the last 2 goals of improving short putting and improving my wedge play. As of right now I don't have a plan other than to go get a lesson on both of these areas week after next. When I return from that lesson I will update this thread and include my plan and/or my habit goals. 
    • You missed the point. A foot in the air can be tough to pinpoint on the ground. And as Daniel said, you can score with your head, so… And people have two feet. So that's two body parts. 😉 That's not true. It's really not. I've played soccer since I was 3. It's not "too much." Again, you've missed the point… You can score with your head. Or knee. Or chest. Or butt.
    • So I think… There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour. There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.
    • Give yourself some credit, Matt. You are thinking about this at a deeper level.  You are probably on to something. I suspect you may be able to blend both ideas together. Here's what you made me think about. I'll use this example. Let's say I set the goal to win the tournament I am playing this April. I may shoot the best score of my life each day. I may shoot a score low enough to win the tournament most years. But, somebody else may stand on his head and shoot an even lower score.  I could look at that outcome two ways. I could say "Dang, I didn't achieve my goal." or, "Because I made that goal I played the best tournament of my life."  To your point, if my goals had been: I'm going to practice the weak points in my game for 90 minutes per week. Work on practice habits that will translate to the course. And Do a better job preparing myself for every tournament I play. Then let's say I have the same outcome as above. One might argue that I would have achieved my goals and because of because of achieving my goals I played the best tournament of my life.  So, yes, I guess it could be semantics. I think however, it's something slightly different. For me, it sounds more like making sure the goals I set are actually within my control. For you, it sounds like the goals you are interested in are more life-style goals rather than mile-stone goals.  I think either can work.  Thanks for at least making me think. 👍😁👍
    • I think if he calls that a hole-in-one he is going to be pissing off the golf gods. (Yes, the golf gods are real and they are a bunch of fickle bitches.)
