Doing the drill again, calling it the Katherine Hepburn drill because she basically did it in a movie. Thinking less Charles Barkley, more Justin Rose. After doing the drill, swing is a little more free. Getting better at don't think, not natural though. A little tougher to stay in inclination while doing the KH drill, tendency is to stand and also take the club outside.

Forgot to video dtl, :doh:, sleep deprived, forgot tripod, tight schedule, no time. Too much shaft lean? Not engaging core? Will need to setup a short game lesson soon.

@nevets88 we talked about this briefly, but I think most of your pitch is arm driven. You're not engaging the bounce properly as evidenced by that little snag right at impact where the leading edge digs into the ground a little and you aren't really turning a lot until well after you've made contact with the ball.

I think you need more dealing cards feel going back and more float-loady feel in the downswing. Let the pivot swing the club.

Did you do the right hand only pitches?

Thanks @billchao, I did do right handers. I'll post it when there's wifi. 

I agree with you, it felt the same despite trying to engage the core. I'll try the cards and float load next time. I think it's going to feel like I'm going to go right over the ball.

Now that you mention it, it does feel a little like that, yea.

Curse you, now I want to get thee to a range. :-) Good to know we're thinking the same thing.

Sorry, it's hard to explain things I do sometimes, I just do them.

Plus, I'm worried that once I fully articulate how I do something, I'll stop being able to do it :-P

It did? Look at these pictures:

That's not middle.

I agree it doesn't look middle, but at the time it did. I'll move it up.

Full swing, Katherine Hepburn drill is continuing to make the swing less constrained, although there is the occasional stutter doing it. Still haven't attempted to do it with 2 consecutive balls yet, think will probably doing this drill for awhile, all season. Head is popping up, need to stay in inclination.  Also working on trying to stop regripping before swinging, tendency is for the grip to get stronger on regrips. Hard habit to break.

Pitches - put the ball more forward, elbows aren't soft, not hinging on the through swing.

Making good on intention to play more, played 18 today, drove it poorly and short game was pretty bad after the 6th hole, but still shot a 90, almost broke 40 on the front 9. Putting, pitching, chipping and sand game (keep flying greens) primarily the score killers, hoping it'll come back, the playing instinct as I played a lot in the past, trying out "new" moves on the short game shots doesn't help either. Will eventually buy a GG unit. Scoring with the mobile app, 40% battery drainage, 8MB of data usage. Need to feel more step drill turn off brain while playing. Hit 5 really solid shots in the round, 2 drivers, 1 3 W and 2 long irons. Since haven't  been playing much, shots out of the rough were troublesome.

    • Day 17: Mirror work again. Still focused on set up. I think it's looking better. Would like to get out to the range, but it's snowing again...
    • I feel for the vaccinated folks who have contracted the virus. I have no time in whatever's left of my life for the willfully ignorant.
    • Those graphs are pretty stark. 
    • Day 30, 1/21/2022 Mirror work again. Same thing as before. I did the no club thing. Then the PVC pipe. Then the club across the collarbone and finally with the club.  I also did two putting drills with 12 balls each. Started with the gate drill while trying to sink a six footer into a 2-1/8 inch hole. For this drill there's a line drawn on my putting green. I use a ball on either side of my putter head as the "gates". Then I try to calmly roll the ball down the line into the small hole 6 feet away without hitting either "gate" with my putter head.  Then I did the second putting drill which is again a six footer. This time through an actual 1-3/4" gate that's 2 feet away from the ball and 4 feet from the hole. (Okay not a hole I used the Putt-Out for this one.) Once again, 12 balls. I try to get them through the gate and into the Putt-Out. Once in every 20 or 30 I actually stick one in the Putt-Out mechanism.
