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.

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.

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.

    • This is a pet peeve of mine too. I love par 5s where driving is made dangerous like you said. Especially combined with green complexes that make running it up with a wood dangerous but are relatively receptive to a hybrid or long iron approach. Fully eliminating the driver landing area and forcing every single player to play the hole the same way is just lazy design and makes for boring holes.  
    • Day 34 (5/6/21) - Hit a small bucket at the range today, about 1/3 each wedges (full swing motion), hybrids and Driver. After striking the  first couple of wedges really near the hosel, I placed my Driver headcover about 2" outside the target line, which definitely helped me to move the strike closer to the center of the face. Low point control was generally good, as were distance and direction. Drivers were pretty solid, with better trajectory than I have been hitting and mostly with a gentle draw. The only exception was a fade which would have worked OK. Hybrids were a problem as I had poor low point control and either hit fat or thin, resulting in poor distance and trajectory. Low point control with my hybrids will be a priority. 
    • I really can't think of disliking courses to a point of calling them the worst I have played from a design POV. Like few other post's above it is conditioning that can make me to not ever want to come back.   I've played a course where the 'greens' are simply tighter cut grass here locally (not sure worth mentioning the name. They weren't pretending to be anything better - $9 for the round). But of course, it was clear after the first hole that I had overpayed.. lol.  Although @mattm16, I would feel like an absolutely spoilt brat complaining about anything I've ever played looking at your 'course' pics. hah  
    • I'm not a fan of Pete Dye courses either, but Mike Strantz is the one I like the least, from a design perspective. 
    • I don't like courses that have a creek or hazard that spans like 250-280 off the tee, especially when its on a par 5.  My preference is to at least have the option to hit driver, totally fine if the landing area at 270 or whatever narrows or is tree lined or bunkers or something, but at least let it be an option, don't force me to lay up to 240 off the tee on a 525-550 yd par 5. There are at least 2 courses around me that have multiple of those holes and I steer away from those courses when possible. There is a 3rd course that has 2 holes like that too but those par 5s are shorter, more around the 500 yd mark, maybe even high 400s depending on where the tees are located so they're still reachable with 2 really good shots.
