My Swing (nevets88)


Recommended Posts

Camera angle shows a good shaft angle at impact, not sure where the flipping your talking about is happening, we have to release the club at some point

My lead wrist is cupping and right wrist is almost starting to bow, there's no slight cupping to it (bent back). I think my arms can be more ahead, less running out of right arm?

Made the trip to Erie, so totally worth it, should have gone earlier. I hit all the shanks and Erik fixed me straight away and more. Here's the 5 minute drill. Full Swing Was too out-in, han

What happens is he's not practicing.

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 😜

Agree

I think you're being way too critical. At impact it's good, after impact the lead wrist starts to cup, can't be flat forever, that would slow the swing down.

OK. It just, something looks off, like I could generate more speed through better sequencing/positions, but it's good to hear. I'm thinking I need more time doing this and fluidity will come.

I second this.

Is getting more shaft lean like this desirable? More and more able to do this at higher speeds but lose the lean at 3/4 to full speed.

This is what I mean by getting arms out in front more.

Notes: When I go at the ball hard, I stand up/extend, flip, lose control & distance. If I swing controlled, I get better impact conditions but don't get my weight forward.

Looks to me like you're in need or a pivot to generate power in the transition.  I'm no professional but what worked for me at this stage was forgetting about everything else(It's more ingrained than you think) and focus on the knees. Specifically, that right knee is a problem.  It doesn't flex back at all. I'm not advocating a sway, you have to turn around your knees but the right knee needs to flex back a little, maybe an inch.

Try this:  Think of both knees as connected. flex them back, directly away from the target line, together maintaing the distance between them. The left knee will close a little more than you realize because of the turn but what's important is that they feel tension, directly away from the target, at the same time and then you stop going back with the knees and hold that tension as you complete your backswing.  Then, as you feel tension at the top, fire both knees right at the target and you'll have a pivot...the hips and arms will follow the knees down the line and you will get that snap you're lacking. Once you get that, you can go back and modify but if it were me, knowing what you know and missing what you're missing, I'd be attaining that pivot snap at this point.

Best of luck. It's a great game.

Thanks for the tips. I'll run this by my instructor and see what he thinks.

Trying something a little different here. Swing thought is arms only. Able to do a full arm swing now, I know the hips aren't extending, my right heel still pretty close to the ground plus that funky follow through. But able to really get the hands forward this way.

I should get the ADD Monkey award. Got sidetracked again. Always wondered how the hell Mac O'Grady did this swing.

This is my sad attempt.

Surely you know what to do with that… :)

This I think? Still cheating @ P4 to get SAT though but not out of sorts like the above I think.

As Erik said

Also note how he doesn't "hold" his wrist angles. Yes he gets the handle pretty far forward at A6, but by A8-9, his left wrist is in dorsi flexion.

Squeeze the thighs together, dorsi flex both wrists, bury the chin in the right clavicle ;-)

    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now. 
    • @Billy Z is going to lose his 💩 when he sees this. 😉
    • Wrapped up another great trip to Erie, which means as usual I have a lot of homework to do. There's a lot of stuff (unsurprisingly) that @iacas has told me in the past that I'm still struggling with, like needing to be more calm and focused before every shot. Bear in mind if you do read this that these are my feels. Putting Erik checked my aim fairly early on. I do have an Edel putter, so the aim wasn't too bad. It was simply twisted slightly open at address. We also moved the ball back about half a ball and shifted my posture a little upright to get my eyes inside the ball. We did make a mechanical change to my stroke, as I swung the putter with my chest, essentially rotating my trunk around. Erik showed me how to swing the putter by keeping my sternum relatively still and letting my arms swing more around my body. The biggest change we implemented is putting with a purpose. As in, I wasn't really doing it. There were times on the course where my distance control was great and others when it was absolutely atrocious, with no real explanation. We figured out that I was basically spaced out and not really putting, just hitting the ball basically. We worked on some preshot stuff to feel the distance and for me to envision the hole as I make my stroke, to keep the target in focus the entire time. Short Game Mostly stuff I've already been taught. Softer arms in pitching, trust the pivot. I tend to use my arms too much and when I quiet them down, I don't allow myself to pivot fast enough because I'm worried I'll hit the ball too far so I end up hitting everything short. Trust the pivot. Chipping is less wrist hinge, butt of club stays pointing to my belly button. Need to be more calm before the shot. I also need to learn to use different clubs to vary trajectory. Full Swing I'll write this in a separate post. It's getting late and I don't want to do this section injustice by writing something up quickly.
