My Swing (nevets88)

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.

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 😜

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.

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.

    • 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.
