My Swing (nevets88)

Working in the new pieces as much as I can before the cold weather sets in. Yeah, I can still practice indoors but it's not the same, breathing in the fresh air and listening to the birds. I noticed in these swings a little more motorcycle at 4. I think I was focused more on hands up and right initially and now that's a little more settled in, more focus on keeping lead wrist more bowed throughout downswing.

Don’t have it bowed much at the top, at 4. Bow it coming down.

I dunno how I missed this post. Will do, thanks.

Not afraid to add speed now. Caught this one on the toe, but before, hard swings usually caught the heel.

Generally miss is right, hard to motorcycle enough, I think because it feels like I'm bringing the heel into play, I know it doesn't, it's just scary to close the face on the way down, but have exaggerated and hit some big hooks so finding middle.

Swing is headed a tiny bit left again. That bucket "under" the club needs to be closer to keep the path just a little out to the right.

I'm not saying it's going left now but keep an eye on that.

To the general thing, yeah, hit some shots that just start left and snipe hook from there, and then you'll know you're doing the wrist stuff enough. Or hit some shots at full speed that snap to a stop with the left wrist still arched at about hip-high on the follow-through (they'll tend to snipe hook too).

Thanks. I need to make those PVC things, a lot easier to position the sticks.

Finally made the PVC alignment stick holders. Turns out I was getting lazy using the baskets, giving myself too much leeway. With the PVC, way less room for error and I was doing less "thinking" and just trying to avoid hitting the PVCs. Thought was more under the stick 1 yard before the ball.

Those look a little better. Ball flight and/or contact a bit better?

Yep, better. Start line more consistent, starting off straight more often. Fewer blocks to right. Thanks!

Harder to get motivated to practice, no sun and cold, and hating the cold more as each year goes by, but trying. It's been edge case between going inside and out, limited time indoors not as much time to setup. Outdoors, I get the range to myself, which is nice I guess. No birds were harmed.

More focus on getting under rear stick, sometimes stick it to the ground though, but I guess that's gonna happen. I placed the stick too close once and hit my hand right on the top of it, the rubber thingy was gone, so I drew blood. Ouch. When you hit the stick or the pvc, it really makes you wary on your next swings and even longer term.

I found it hard last year in the late fall to deal with the cold, but by February, it didn't bother me because I wanted to be ready for the season.

Lol. February is like when it’s the worst and the hardest to deal with! You’re hardier than I am.

Bought myself some sunshine. Sticks are harder to position in the open, not confined to a stall. Better at under rear stick but can’t get face closed, motorcycle not enough.

That's a pretty wide gate there. 🙂 Remember that front one is supposed to be close to your target line.

And the back one… keep that away like you have it, because you can crack a shaft easily if you come down on that one.

I was going to ask about the positions. I modified my hitting platform so I could put the front stick in. How close to the target line should it be and what angle? I made my prototype 60 degrees and made a few positions so I could move it depending on whether I was hitting driver or irons. It is basically a piece of wood mounted to the front of the platform with 6 hole positions.

    • Do you consider Ben Hogan's book: "Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf" to be outdated?  "high speed video, pressure traces, and stuff like GEARS" are tools used to measure data points, these data points are taken from high level players and are then used by instructors to modify golfers swings into swinging like those measured players. The you tube videos from Athletic Motion Golf are prime examples. What do you call that "swing style"?
    • So I started tracking my stats this year and it appears I was a little over ambitious with my goals lol Goal was 50% fairways I am currently at 39.6% I'm more than long enough I should be keeping the driver in the bag outside of a handful of holes per round instead of using it on virtually every moderately straight par 4 no matter the danger I could inevitably put myself in. Goal was 50% GIRs I am currently at an abysmal 31% but I've noticed my GIR when i hit a fairway is 52.5% while when I miss it is just 21.3% so I need to be ok with losing some yardage in order to find the fairway more often which should make a lot of things fall into place. I have also been battling my irons all year if I cant go driver wedge I've been pretty useless.  Goal was for scrambling to be over 45% I am currently at 22% which is probably my most surprising statistic I thought I would be holing more clutch putts. I set my putt goal for 33 and that is right where i am now at 33.3 putts per round. I have not been 3 putting much at all I am currently on a 73 hole 3 putt free streak I have been good at lag putting but I'm not holing as many 8-12 footers as I think I should be. The amount of 2 putt bogies I have is incredible.  My ultimate goal is to get to single digits this year I am currently at a 12.2 (down from what I'm guessing was 18-20+ last year) I need to keep putting in the work. Knowing my stats has helped me realize what changes I need to make strategy wise and where i need to improve my ball striking the most.   
    • Round 2 results: . . . . . . Different groupings and different weather conditions (hot with gusty winds out of the northeast; IMO ideal for this course).   The pros were grouped with a 12 and 6 (the 12 shot his career best).  I played with 3 other mid to high single digits.  Member 1 and Member 3 were paired with a former Div 1 collegiate woman golfer and a 10.    Member #1 – 67 Pro #2 – 68 Pro #1 – 70 Me – 74 Member #3 – 77 For S&G’s the former Div1 collegiate played from the woman’s tees and shot 86.   Nerves were nonexistent (probably because the pros were playing ahead of me).  Hyper focused would be the best way to describe my mindset.   Only missed 2 fairways (both misses were small misses) and hit 14 greens.  Iron play could have been better and was battling a slight case of the lefts.  Was +1 heading into 17 and tripled.  18 is a legit birdie hole and I missed a 6 footer.  Solid round with one major mistake.   Member 1 played his usual consistent game. Member 3 struggled off the tee and had to scramble.  Both pros played well from tee to green but never got anything going on the greens.         Will post Round 3 results later today….. lol, then don't follow or participate.  Better yet, block me.  Problem solved.   You are something else, same BS many years later.....   And for the rest of you, screen shot this response because it will be deleted.  Or maybe I'll get banned 🤣
    • Strategy is discussed. That’s all. This guessing is dumb, I agree. Just post the results.
    • There is no such thing as a Homer Kelley swing. The Golfing Machine is not a book that describes a single swing style, like the Stack and Tilt swing or the Moe Norman swing. Plus it’s horribly outdated, written before the age of high speed video, pressure traces, and stuff like GEARS.
