My Swing (nevets88)

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.

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.

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.

    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.  
    • The above is the first I've heard of booster shots.  Hopefully I find a place to get one that doesn't involve over a half hour's drive to a city named Corona like my first two shots.
    • and, quoting the above: The line of best fit for the data of GIR vs score is 95 - 2 * GIR.  That's probably where @reidsou's number came from.   Note that, even if we treat it as the standard goal (I agree with you, as you'll see in a moment), an average 11-GIR round probably has one or two birdies thrown in, and I'd bet that most of those missed greens in such a round (again, for an average 11-GIR round) are probably very much near-GIR.  That having been said, there are some of us, such as the original poster on this thread and I, whose long game is such that more than seven GIR isn't unheard of (which that formula would "predict," if we use it to predict at least, a round in the 70s) but who still score in the 80s.  I even recently had a round with 9 GIR and a score of 90 -- which is why 95 - 2 *GIR isn't meant to predict any individual's score, but does still highlight the importance of GIR and ball striking. Which brings me to my next point, which is also @Shorty's next point:  yeah, 50% chipping and putting is not the way to go, certainly not long term.  Maybe with the goal of getting those traits to about an average 20-handicapper's level (without sacrificing approach shot strength), and then using the 15/20 time productively in future weeks to improve on them.  The nice thing about chipping and putting is that there is some low hanging fruit as far as getting competent goes, especially if one is building off the sort of short game shots that come from missing fewer than half of one's GIRs.
    • The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.  
    • I flew over Cabot Cliffs and Southport and the rendering of these courses was really poor. Guessing you have to find the courses where specific work was done to make them look realistic.
