Flow drills working? A little better w/flow, body going before hands start down just a tad. Wrists look better through impact as well.

Better at body transitioning forward before hands start down, but lateral forward hands lag still happens, more flexion of torso, hands go from A4 faster and pop the belly top and bottom more in sync, not sure if this is answer.

Key #4 is better but #5 no good, face is too open on downswing, forcing it more shut at A4 seems to help.

Driver is good, irons not so good, not really improving in terms of score.

Where are you losing strokes?

Irons, approach shots mostly. Putting some, but not really working on short game. The trail side dominance is okay with driver, not when ball is on ground.

Focused here on making clubhead go more up and right post impact, it's been a bit low and left lately as evidenced by videos above. Steep from the top, grrrr. Keys #4 and #5 are hard. There's a swing alignment stick in the sky, lol.

Better at lower body not getting ahead, hands go from 4 faster, Keys #4 and #5. So this guy sees me setting up w/the tripod and he says, is that FBI approved, I say no, CIA. He pauses and then says, oh no, the CIA, that's even worse, and we both had a good chuckle.

The bottom not outracing the top is becoming more automatic now.

Longer clubs, harder to get down and around. Cut across this one, could do with more in to out.

Noticed when trying to keep centers in sync, less likely to shank when squeezing left armpit to body, a la glove in armpit drill. Don't like that face shutting so quickly. Shaft too vertical in the follow through as well.

Driver requires the most exaggerated feel of recentering, and hardest to get the hands to the right pocket at A6, hardest to stay in inclination. First vid, hands way behind, second, less recentering, but hands a little closer to pocket. Feels like heading in the right direction. Key #4 is better, lead side isn't sliding way ahead, ball flight is decent. Getting the hands high and away from me at A10, pinch left armpit, makes the rotation better, hips turn in place rather than towards the ball and then fall towards ball after swing is done.

Recentering and getting hands down faster to sync with turn better. Still figuring out how to keep clubface from opening on the way down then closing late, would like to see face more shut from A5 to A7. I think the frame at just after A6, the face looks too open. Not in video, but driver also feels like needs a lot more squatting, butt to chair on the way down to keep from sliding forward.

It took me all season to do it but I think I finally got the gist of re-centering see @iacas's analysis below. Not as evident with the driver, but you can just make out a smidgen and the driver, I would massively have the hands lag behind, so it's an improvement. One of the main things was figuring how to get the hands going earlier and faster.

The first swing has been a problem all season (neglected analyzing face on angle vids), right tilt too early, behind ball, works for driver (teed up) but terrible for everything else. The following swing, exaggerated re-centering. Last swing less exaggerated.

Trying more aggressively to go down to the ball to get path more in to out. Think this helps with low point too. Work in progress. Dunno, maybe needs to be a little more rotated going into impact. Trail hand turning over lead hand a lot too, too much supination, shaft too horizontal.

Tried incorporating more in to out path, recalled a ball gate drill from Erik's covid plan, did it wrong, have to get some tennis balls, also tried imagining tracing the clubhead on a path going more out which I think helped a little, at least clubhead isn't dropping down on ball. Need to figure out how to tell path is out from face on.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
