Woohoo, played 9 and for once, didn't hit one really awful shot, no earth digging fats, no bone shattering thins, no shanks, no OB drivers. Hit one juuuust off the heel and wound in the green side bunker a nGIR, not very right at all. Every iron went pretty much near where I wanted it to go and hit two controlled low trajectory escape shots which went exactly the height I wanted, 10 feet high and 100, 175 yards. Still shot a 43, a snowman because of a green side bunker shot caught too cleanly because wet packed sand into a bunch of leaves killed me, but that's the short game and doesn't bother me as much. If I had my regular season short game, could have broken 40. Someone mistook my Aimpoint Express finger procedure for Vector putting. Cold-ish weather didn't effect distance much either.

Because limited time indoors don't practice longer clubs as much. Sometimes need to start with a long iron to get to driver.

Lesson, more work on no Havercamp on the backswing. Really feels like I'm stretching to the sky and wound up. Feels are sway hips back while left shoulder to ball.

Better with extension at 4, more daylight between shaft and head.

Thanks. Doesn't look it but feeling a major stretch there, like a pretzel.

Bought the changes to the course, shot 44 short game rusty, driver was good, much more controlled, pretty much all nGIRs, focused on the one thought, feel that stretch at 4. Getting same distance feeling like less effort although that stretch at 4 takes energy out of me more when at the range. Don't like the chicken wing at 8-9 but will focus on that later, want to make new feeling at 4 automagic.

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 😜

Last evolvr lesson - get right elbow more in front of body on downswing. This is a 7I @ super slow tempo, probably went 75 yards, but the feel is totally different. Even though it's not a full tempo swing, I feel progressively swinging faster while keeping the same feels is the way to go. I call this the " love tap " drill.

 

Even though that's probably my best P6 position and I know it's supposed to be a powerful position, it doesn't. Maybe when I up the speed a little more.

That looks like a fantastic drill...I've never seen that one before. I have to try that one.

Looking good Steve. What feel are you using? The one I use is pushing  my right arm down against my left thumb at setup. Then I keep that feel to A4.

Thanks Scott. A lot more hip sway away from target from A1, chest extension from A3-A4, arms reaching for sky A3-A4, head towards target A3-A4. Feels like a lot more torque, stretched out more.

    • Update: The gaming laptop came first along with software licenses for FSX 2020, FSX Play, and FSX Pro. Set-up was pretty straightforward with just one minor configuration needed for Play to get it to not ask for changes every time it loaded, but nothing I couldn't handle. I spent a few days exploring the software and watching You Tube and the Vimeo tutorials on the Pro app. The V2 Net came in with the mat on a pallet and that was easy enough to put up in 5 minutes. I was really surprised, but the V2 color coding system made it a snap. The GC3 came in last night and that set-up is fool proof. I plugged it in to charge, hooked up to wifi, upgraded firmware and was ready to hit some shots.  Well, the GC3 is just amazing! I loved the FSX Pro app and the data points around it. The FSX 2020 had some cool contest features with the 6 foot challenge and the online closest to the pin contests. I tried my hand at the sim golf, but really need to get a bit more comfortable in the environment to be swinging driver and woods. There are some nuances about sim golf that I need to figure out, but I will get there. I finished up on the Pro app hitting 58 degree wedges to targets at 50, 60, 70, and 80 yards. I really was impressed with how much there is to do, but I am sure I will settle into it.  Overall, it has been a great experience and if you are limited on space and want the most accurate of data, this is a great way to go. 
    • Yep, because you just can't try a swing out and have it stick. This isn't something like, lets try this out on the range once. Any swing change, requires hours of work to override existing swing tendencies.  So, for those saying, "Just try it". That only works for someone who isn't already actively working on something with an instructor, or maybe new to golf. Unless those working with an instructor that they think they are not seeing improvement with their instructor. Otherwise, it will only be rude to the instructor and possibly damaging to the progress the golfer has already made to "just try it". 
    • Don’t mean to hijack your thread but just asking for some advice regarding changes that take a long time. My issue is I have several ingrained habits that are a mess. I always lose my trail palm grip at the top, I over swing, and other nonsense. When I attempt to make things right, it’s so absolutely foreign I literally can’t hit a ball or even almost fall down if I’m air swinging. Grip changes literally feel like I’m holding a knotted oak branch. Keeping my lead arm straight feels like I’m raising my arm as if to answer a question. Maybe this is expected. Now the issue: hitting balls is like yoga, meditation for me. I can spend hours and hours doing my silly Jim swing and hit balls. But deep down I want to be able to maximize my distance and swing to the best of my ability with all the five keys occurring. I spent a month trying a new back swing feel with my coach awhile back. The position was much better on video. But I couldn’t remotely hit a ball. It was like a toddler hitting If I even made contact. It was actually depressing as I wasn’t getting my yoga, meditation sessions. I missed just hitting a nice draw. Instead it was exhausting and just felt like I was never gonna be able to swing ‘normally.’ But if I just wanted to hit some balls, it only further ingrained my awful habits. What do you do while you’re making drastic changes that are absolutely tying you in a knot and prevent you from playing or just hitting the range? Sorry, this can be moved to another thread if needed. Just wanted your input. Thanks Scott.
    • I think a lot of the outrage or negativity associated with it is that people aren't putting enough thought into how this could be handled better.   It's hard to find a way because of a couple of different reasons. My knee jerk reaction is similar to a lot of people, you sign your card and know your score and then come back the next day and it's different?!   Sounds awful on the surface of it.   Especially since in most cases the players are not trying to get away with anything or break the rules, it's more ignorance of the rule.   However, who would want to see a rules violation caught before the tournament ended and not properly assessed because you couldn't apply it the next day?   That's a nightmare.   Yes, after the tournament is over and everything verified as best as possible, I don't think we would see anything change then.   The statute of limitations is over and there was enough time to review.  So really, catching rule violations while the tournament is active, even for all 4 days, is the best case scenario.  
    • I can hit monster hooks. Maybe that’s part of my mental block. I hate hooks. For me right now, it may be an anatomy thing per Erik on my Evolvr lesson. I have to undo years of the way my left wrist has been working. It may take a while unfortunately.
