Right tilt at impact. Getting used to feeling closer to the ground.

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.

Why is the clubface so closed?

I was extended at the top so added more flex to lead wrist.

I don’t see it. The face is closed through the entire backswing.

I don't post my bad swings here and my swing can have a lot of variations. Yes, the face is excessively closed between A1 and A2, but it's not too crazy shut at A4. If I let the wrist extend, shaft is too steep coming down.

This is what happens if I don't think flex lead wrist:

When I do:

You’re plenty deep at A4 in both. Do you think about swinging out more from A4 to A5? That’s one feel my instructor has me working on. Steep at A3 and shallow at A5 with swinging out from transition.

I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.

When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso.

Why not square?

Hooks suck, too.

Your face is shut in both swings.

That’s the feel I use too. It’s feeling the head drop behind with the start of the swing going more out than down. It flattens the shafts so by A5 it’s on plane.

That’s pretty square.

I mean, it is on the closed side of square but…

I thought square was more toe down there, no?

Not completely toe down obviously but closer to 45°.

I’m more square here so I can do it. 
I can play around with it when I start hooking it. Maybe the shaft a little bit more laid off is contributing to the closed face?

That’s probably it.

Another thing is when I think bow lead wrist, I don’t do a last minute tip out cross way over the line move at A4 before coming down.

Depends on where the club is on the arc, lead arm angle, etc.

Same thing as above, more right side bend, flex lead wrist, "fall behind" at 4. The good news is that I haven't hit really bad shanks in awhile. Heel? Yes. Ball mark on shaft? No.

    • Hey, he's entitled to his opinion.  I've never objected to anyone saying they vote for Jack.  I only object when they start trying to justify their opinion with the kind of non-factual nonsense that is contained in the thousands of messages in this thread.  Or this latest nonsense of DiMarco somehow "gifting" the Masters to Tiger.  It's like saying Rocco 'gifted' the 2008 US Open to Tiger by driving it into a bunker on the 91st hole. But I respect his right to his opinion, even though I think it is unsupported by the facts.  Not everyone has dived into the topic as deeply as we have in this thread, and it is indisputable that the 18>15 criterion is still being peddled whole-heartedly by much of the golf media.  So there are a lot of people whoo still reflect that.
    • Now you’re just being smarmy and patronizing. I’m sad for you and your poor decision making. And sad for the people you may infect because you couldn’t do your duty as a citizen. You’ve never had any of the diseases you were already vaccinated for but chose to not participate in this one. The state of Wyoming has died and you couldn’t give a sh*t.
    • I’m glad that you’re comfortable with the decision you made.  
    • Well statistically that’s silly. But nostalgically …to each his own.
