Thanks @mvmac. Boy, does he get the hands ahead @ A6:

Yes but that's not how he plays golf. This is just swings he sends to students.

This would be closer to his "play" A6-7. Shallow divot here.

Oh, I didn't know that. That clears up a lot!

There should be a third party Mac O'Grady FAQ out there, as much as I'd guess he wouldn't like that. :-)

I think this is 90ish, but I straighten the left knee too soon, or something too soon, throwing all the angles alway prematurely.

You're doing fine. Stop being so picky. :)

If those aren't 90, they're close enough to keep doing that and move on to something else. 60 or whatever it was before was not enough… what you're doing here is.

Looks good enough to take to the course.

Ha ha. I've been in hunker down tunnel vision range mode for awhile, using Analyzr like crazy, looking at vids of other swings and just watching over and over again, marking up with lines circles and dots in trying to figure things out mode. It's gonna be easier to play now that I have a visual of my swing burned into my head and I've made my peace with how it looks. In the vid above I'm trying to get the R shoulder down/tilt faster and the tip out move from the top seems to have gone away.

Moved front foot more towards target, softer right arm, shoulder less down going back, more lateral and behind, crush the can on lead foot on transition from downswing.

Unfortunately, I can't get them all going at the same time. I can get the head steadier.

And I can do the can thing, but both at the same time, not easy but I feel I'm close.

A little thing I do to be less ball bound when trying changes. I'm about a foot further away from the ball and I step towards ball and then hit. Here I'm trying to get used to a weaker lead hand grip. Lead wrist is more bowed than usual at impact and past.

Left photo, aggressively pushing to left foot, crush the can. Right photo, not as much.

Doing a reverse Duval/Sorenstam with the head. I find that it keeps me from dipping/early tilting whatever that causes my head to drop in the beginning of the BS plus it helps it from translating back a little. Wondering if I should use this for Key #1.

Picked up a couple of new things.

  • When I line up my feet to point straight out (90 degrees to target line) from my pov standing up, they are actually pointing out 10-15 degrees. Don't have to purposely point out toes, it's automatic. If I do on purpose, it's too much.
  • I tend to set up open a tad. Have to feel closed to be square.
  • Was starting to tilt head away from target on setup, had to undo that, feel like I'm tilting head towards target to be "neutral".
  • Working on right shoulder down, weight going from right heel to left toe, key #1 and firing arms and hands.

I noticed a couple of things that I'm just going to mention and maybe they really aren't important! Is it possible that your left knee is going more in than needed, to the point that your right knee locks? It just looks like your hip turns too much if there is such a thing.. Maybe you could consciously try not to lock the right knee and bring the left knee more down than in on the BS? The other thing is you are basically flat footed at impact, and I wonder if that is a key#2 issue? Your right foot banks, but well after impact, I'm thinking it needs to be slightly before.. Maybe from A6 you could just bank your right foot slowly into A7 to get the feel down.. Maybe I'm just way off base, just wanted to chime in as I know you have good understanding of the swing! Cheers!

That's what I'm seeing. There really isn't much transfer forward from A4-6.

[quote name="mvmac" url="/t/65993/my-swing-nevets88/90#post_1023116"] That's what I'm seeing. There really isn't much transfer forward from A4-6. [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/102276/] [/URL] [/quote] You're both absolutely right. I think I'm so keyed in on keys 1 and 4 to the detriment key 2. I'm guessing my hips should be more forward and the back of my right heel should be showing in the dtl it's not. Also too focused on firing the arms. Key 1 is bothering me too, much head bobble, a leftover from me misinterpreting Stack and Tilt. Also too focused on my transition from top of BS to downswing,

I do something similar except closed with my feet.  I noticed it when I was sending in Evolvr videos.  I have to consciously move my front foot back at set up.

    • 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.)
