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.

 

I’ve been working a lot lately on setup and getting center-face contact. I’ve used a dry erase marker and fitting paper. I learned as I made changes over the winter, my former distance from the ball was off. Lots of toe hits. So I’ve made adjustments. I recommend trying that for a few swings every practice or so.

Yep, I use dry erase as well. Haven't figured out what to use for wet conditions though.

Also with high speed video, you can tell by how the face deflects whether you hit it on the heel or toe. It's more obvious with driver but you can tell with irons as well.

In the last couple of videos here, the face is pretty darn shut going to A2, kind of ignored it for awhile, but decided to "fix" it along with the stuff my instructor gave me. There's some fanning of the face open going on, will try and calm it down. Could do better with turning into left shoulder at A4 here, a little whippy in to out.

Got a smart ball. Well, the Tourstriker one was sold out, wait until July, so I got a knock off on Amazon in the meanwhile - you have it inflate it and it looks flimsy, but should hold up until the Tourstriker comes. My lead elbow can get very chicken wing-y post A8 and I liked how in videos demonstrating it, the arms move with the torso. I tend to let the arms swing across the body too much post impact, instead of staying in front of body.

Cold topped the first I dunno, 4 balls using it. It really forces me to get down to the ball. And it does help sync up my arms and torso post impact. It also turns out to be an anti-shank aid, tending to hit everything towards the toe. At least it's the honeymoon stage now so we'll see about the shanks. I like the swings I'm seeing after I use the aid. Using it with the driver too and very helpful.

A progression.

Hands going out too fast. 

Overdid the shallowing bit?

I think this is more ideal.

Overdoing the hip slide too much lately, not really sure what to do, tried back to target a little longer, also less weight forward at A4. Last three swings of the day.

I widened my stance a small amount to help with this. You are not EE. Post a face on if you can too.

Here's one where my hands are lagging behind the turn. Not sure why, too much right tilt, hips going too early.

Here's attempted fix.

 

I dunno, I think I need more hump the giraffe, hands more in front of me and higher at the finish?

I just look so inflexible and old man, well, I guess I'm an old man. Wish I could swing more limberly.

First attempt Erik, slowed it down and not exactly turning as hard. Also tried the feel of tilting my head towards the target at 4. The regrip to strong I tried turning the club head closed to counter it, dunno if that's a good way of countering the regrip.

Yeah, I was going to recommend any days from my 30 day plan that mentioned flow or pressure or weight.

Dialed down the regrip to strong and head translating back a little bit. Noticed a little across the line and extended wrist on DTL view so adjusted. Also did a lot of the step drill, the first one in Erik's flow video.

It probably wouldn’t hurt to film the drill and post it.

    • Yeah was planning on a bit of speed dating. Would AP1 be the T100 now?
    • Obviously I am being paid by the Saudis. They told me to find a forum that has about 15 people reading it and convince those 15 people (many of whom  flunked freshman economics) that competition and free trade is a good thing for the world. Very lucrative career. 
    • Yea, that’s what was also great about them.  They were still appropriate whether you played to a 30 or a 10 index.  I think the same can be said for the Mizuno JPX or Titleist AP1. If you fall in love with the Stealth irons, you like how they set up to a ball, they’re fit appropriately (length, shaft, you can adjust lie down the road if necessary), and within budget… I say go for it.  I mean you’ll probably be playing them for 8+ years, and will get your money’s worth. I would recommend hitting a few other irons while there, just to confirm you’re in love (kinda like dating before you tie the knot).
    • @darthweasel does it say anywhere on the scorecard if the executive course is OB? If it's not and it's definitely not staked OB then I would have played it, too. Earlier in the year I pushed a tee shot on a par 3 off the course but there were no stakes to mark OB and nothing on the scorecard indicated it was OB so I played it. It was clearly off the course, though, because it ended up in the grass on the side of the road that the town maintained. Though this got me thinking, could the course mark the penalty area on the side that @darthweasel was playing on and say it goes on indefinitely? And do the same for the executive course side, so the stream is marked on both sides but is only meant to be a lateral boundary depending on what side you're playing?
    • Sorry @ChetlovesMer and @Shindig One last thing, my uh budget just recently expanded quite a bit. I bought a semi expensive piece of equipment for my home office which died a short and abrupt death. Was going to return it when I posted on social media about it and the brand's director of relations offered to replace it and throw in another free much more expensive unit as I spent some time talking to him and his team and sent my failed unit directly to the engineers for testing. I don't have much a use case for the other unit so I'll probably sell it and put the money towards my irons. Incredible how life works sometimes isn't it? So uh, bump the budget to 1k. Do your recommendations change? Thoughts on the Stealth Irons from TaylorMade? I'm kind of falling in love with them and heading over to dicks to hit them tomorrow.
