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.

Wow. I am bad at stick placement. I need to retake stick placement 101. Way closer to target line made swing better.

Think camera placement wasn't good for putt last time. Putting it straight on the putter head may be a better angle to judge its path. [video]http://youtu.be/PPc1oNeG0Gs[/video]

Working so hard on R shoulder more over ball, neglected to video face on. This is a pretty good Mr. Havercamp. Not getting hips active. No up and forward. Lots of left?

Putting more into hips, but wrist, impact conditions terrrrrible.

Recalling laydown, motorcycle rev practice during winter, combined R shoulder over ball, active hips, shallow/motorcycle. Hips still saggy, but better. Less contrived, well, until 9. Fake it till you make it.

Still tipping under a little?

- Backswing - minimize arm runoff, extra wave.

- Lay down + rev.

- Right shoulder down/over/around.

- Hips feel like step forward drill and "popup"/jump.

Lesson. Santa belly - get the belly pointing to target (probably a little higher) and bank trail foot. Hip motion / torso 7-8 look much better, no more sag. Head steadier post impact it seems as shoulders more rotation. Trail knee was doing Elvis Presley, kicking towards ball too much. The bank motion keeps that in check. Driver a little more rotational, complete finish.

Keys #2 and #4. Getting used to feeling closer to ball on downswing and steeper upper body combined w/shallowing shaft on DS. Undoing years and years of straightening up is not easy.

Trying to combine trail foot bank feel w/K#2 and not to think about stuff that's "baked in" like arm shallowing, "covering". Feels like more rotation going on so closing clubface more from 4. Flippy, so will try firing arms/hands faster next time. Starting to feel all the changes from lessons this year are "just happening", less mechanical, but still hard to turn brain off. In the FO video, could raise the belt more towards the end, get bat signal to sky.

Changing the picture with @pcombs21, one season at a time. Staying in inclination much better, right knee not kicking out as much, downswing less steep, exit condition w/resp to shaft better. Getting there with the long clubs/driver.

Weakened trail hand grip. @iacas worked on this with me awhile ago, but R hand just wandered its way back. Need to get back to getting scrunchy, "cover ball"/head on wall while keeping grip change. Weight is going back around 4-5, need more key #2. With weakened right hand, feels a lot more motorcycle rev on the DS.

 

Recap of things learned this year:

Better use of camera - more 30fps vids, just a handful of 240 during each session. Hopefully better w/angles. 

Changed practice swing - range & course. Exaggerated hands forward too much, now practice swings closer to actual swing, but not always. Practice impact position better mimics actual impact position.

Shallowing not mastered, but very baked in and better at keeping it when combined w/body steepening moves.

More comfortable getting down to ball, feeling closer to it 6-8, but need to keep working on keeping "head on wall". Hopefully can work on it during off season.

Continue working on putting - path, decel, AE 1 finger reads. Chipping and pitching, didn't spend enough time - hope to work on this next season.

Much thanks to @pcombs21 for improvement and working w/me this year and the TST staff for all the ongoing tips, swing feels like it's on a really good path - didn't help matters by not playing enough this season, but will make up for it next year.

Working on the crunch/cover. Getting more comfortable staying in inclination around A6, feeling closer to the ground between A6 and A8 feels less and less harrowing, more natural, not retracting the back.

To my eye the ball position is the difference between you and MVMAC

Thanks. I tend to err on the side of ball too forward. I'll try putting it back a little.

    • I've had between a half dozen and a dozen rounds at my home course this year;  part of that is I moved an hour away in 2019 and hadn't really explored the area.  I'll probably maintain club membership there because I like the group, and I'll look for one around my new home too. I say that because in those 6+ rounds, I've yet to par holes 7, 9, or 12;  I have yet to make a birdie at the course either.  Best-ball score at the course so far in 2021:  74. Earlier today, I played my third round at a course that might become my new home course, or at least my most commonly played course starting soon.  It's the second-closest (not including super expensive or private courses) to my house, an easy drive, and well within my price range.  After three rounds, I have a composite score there of 74, with two birdies in there. On one hand, the new course is easier (lower CR/SR) and a bit shorter, but on the other hand, that's interesting.
    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
