Stick in front and ball gate for path (from covid practice plan vids) is pretty helpful. Couldn't find two tennis balls, the toy ball actually worked out and it stays in place better because there's a weight inside it although it squeaks.

Not sure but it looks like the face is opening up just a smidge from 1st to 2nd frame. Think in general, something is off with the face generally, feels like (looks like) shutting face hard later in the swing rather than having it square or slightly shut and keeping face stable. Cannot for the life of me get the face to look like it does in last photo, maybe don't need it that shut, but a little more. Dunno, just thinking aloud. Obviously many misses are right these days, so face is open.

Tried staying less on left side at beginning of swing, not moving off ball, but more pressure to right. Feels like gives more room to re-center. On the course, a mental block getting myself to externally rotate trail shoulder, pronate lead forearm, flex lead wrist to close face just before downswing. The drive just barely cleared the trees.

The change in back angle seems not great to me.

Yeah, the range swings look better and I'm working on getting the course swing to match range swing.

Focused on recentering when FO (also more pressure towards right side, away from ball on backswing), in to out path, DTL. Things I'm noticing but not sure I should work on - hands drop from A4 in transition, body generally going towards ball (not keeping butt against wall), trail arm crossing over lead arm post impact (shaft too horizontal?), face not closed enough from A5 to A7

Figured out how to better keep the toe ahead of the heel (neutral > closed face) on the downswing. Think dropping my arms too much on downswing made the face open up a bit around A5. Have never been able to do what's in the slow motion video - shallow at A5 with clubhead neutral, not open, maybe even slightly closed. And then decent clubhead position at A6, face slightly closed, YouTube blurred it but in original video, can see better. And didn't shank it although close to heel contact. Feel was more leaving hands up and turn into shoulder. The top of the swing lead wrist is pretty flexed, guess at higher speeds and more reps, it won't look as extreme. Also doing these swings slowly, not quite adding speed yet. Could also rotate more on the downswing will work on that.

The first swing is not good. Not enough flex in lead wrist at A4 and downswing too steep, face open at impact but included it because the very next swing, because previous swing on video available to see, able to correct. It still can be more in to out and hands could exit higher, working on that. More giraffe hump. Also working on flow in all these swings, trying just to make the swing feel like one unit instead of separate parts.

Focus here was trying to keep left butt cheek on the wall, get trail foot on tippy toe at end of swing, let trail ankle release more and swing out towards ball so Key #4 path more out. Basically turn hips so that it doesn't head towards ball. Lead wrist is actually extending at A4, but it's flat enough I guess. But A8, there's room for the hands to go out and up. Guessing the path is less left with this pattern. A6 position is pretty decent although thinking flow before swinging.

If you bow it too much in the backswing it’s going to want to extend in transition.

Agreed, I'm struggling with the timing of this. I'm bowing too early, trying to figure out how to get max flex at or after A4.

In the first swing, common tendency is to want the lead wrist to go into extension, get shaft across the line, trail shoulder internally rotate before getting to A4, and then quickly reverse all the the previous. Thinking positions too much. It's a very "woobly" transition. Second swing, thinking more flow (less Matsuyama), rather than positions. The lead wrist does not overly flex before A4 and flexes right before the downswing. Think this is the way to go in terms of the transition and Keys #4 and #5. On the other hand, in second swing, could be more rotated going into impact and clubhead more under and behind at A6. It's a little over the bottom. But at least the transition should help in getting path more in to out.

I realize a mistake I made all last year, hands swinging too left, too in, a little before impact. Get clubhead a little behind and below at A6. Working on getting that path more in to out especially post impact. Wearing an N95 while swinging isn't too bad. I tried double masking with Livinguard masks (one sport, one regular), but I actually ran out of breath, lol.

    • Another birdie today.  The 14th on my home course is a dogleg right par 5.  Probably around 300 yards or so it turns 45 degrees right and total distance is touch over 500.  Pulled my tee shot left and into the 16th fairway.  Didn't have a direct line back onto my fairway but was able to hit a 4 hybrid onto the 12th fairway which is right of the 14th.  Landed up around 100 yards from the green and PW hit the green and stopped within 5 feet and a fairly easy putt.  Touch of break from left to right but able to hole the putt
