This^ @nevets88.

I didn't do any of those today, will do it next session.

Feeling like a reverse pivot, feels totally different, but doesn't look like a reverse pivot, keeping more centered. The regripping hard to dial down. The more centered the backswing is, the more the hips want to slide forward. I suspect my hips are so out of whack is because have been focusing hard on the DTL view and not using FO as much.

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.

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

That thin heel shot is a common miss. A little bit over the bottom. Last swing is last swing of the session.

Trying to feel more head centered. Also faster hands, almost feels like dropping to ground at A4. Then massive, massive giraffe whoopie and trying for flow feeling from the step drill.

Huh, the second swing is almost like that keep right arm straight as possible challenge?

How far does your 7I go, and how far can it go if you just swung hard and didn't try to brake the finish, and then re-start to make the finish a bit longer?

Just took a lesson and did this, instructor pretty much spent the whole time working on flow and talking about not thinking and hitting positions did step drills with SpeedBomber.

When I did the swing hard, CHS was around 80-84, max distance was 163, averaged around I'd say 150 according to ... I forget the name of the device, HMT / Foresight - the grey and black one.

I didn't have launch monitor but farther than the swings above. Faster version of the step drill, a lot of momentum loading up to A4. Tendency is to over the top, first DTL video. Tried more shallow second DTL, looks wonky, tried smoothing it out last DTL. Will get a Speedbomber to work on making swing more dynamic.

Getting better with the drill, the hard part is not going over the top. Moving to longer clubs, 5 iron 2nd swing in vid. Loading better to A4 I think is helping with flow.

Still working on getting head recentered, at least it's not going back for the most part.

Trying to feel more flow. The swing not as positions to hit, but passing through "corridors of success" (I forget where I read that - Leadbetter?). Not the swing as this followed by that and that, but as one unit. A little trouble squaring the face. The first DTL is the slow version, the second swung harder.

Merged all swings from last practice session to see if I could spot any patterns. Toe contact - curves right. Slow, low takeaway, steep shaft coming down and right. On plane good tempo takeaway, more likely straight. There is a lot of variability from one swing to the next.

Recentering, flow, Key #4. Found that that Athletic Motion Golf drill where you get your hands down fast from A4 to A6 helped too. To keep those hands from falling behind. Also making swings and backswings w/SpeedBomber. Swing is more in sync, maybe a tad steep at A5, but not in corridor of death.

Agreed A5 is something to always keep working on buy you're not in the death zone. One thing I notice is you're losing your spine angle. Or an alternate way to think of it is you're driving your right hip at the ball instead of down the line. Also with the dark shorts and light it's not 100% clear but I'd say you need to rotate your hips more by impact.

Thanks for the tips - I'm working on that too, turn into shoulder, stay in inclination, hit the chair behind you, but arms tend to fall behind. Working on them going together with the body. Here the arms are getting outpaced by the turn, so that got me to thinking about that Athletic Motion drill.

Giving the hands the time and space to get in the slot has been a huge area of work for me too. Recently my pre-shot routine has been to get into impact position and then make partial swings back to like A5.5 through A8 sort of as a key for what it should feel like swinging from the slot at A5.5 and a reminder not to rush anything that prevents me from getting there. Long journey...

Here are two swings where I'm pretty open at impact (tried to make identical swings), but more than a few things out of sync. Not flexing lead wrist in transition, transition could be shallower, not humping the giraffe enough, arms going across the body, too much slide. Still figuring things out.

    • Was in a group a few years ago that played every Wednesday and we did this same thing with net birdies every year.  One year got to 16 of them, but couldn't get two of them that I didn't get strokes on.  At least with this one, I get to count more than just Wednesday rounds...
    • I'm aware, but the post described choosing to forego two drops and immediately drop more than two club lengths from a penalty area. That is not in the rules. And, in the cited example of a penalty area and a cart path, "back where you started" would never occur. Because relief from a cart path must be in the general area, not back in the penalty area. 
    • It is in the Rules. However, in such situations, the player may not, in a single procedure, concurrently take relief from two conditions by dropping a ball in a single relief area determined by a combined nearest point of complete relief from both conditions, except in the situation where the player has successively taken relief for interference from each condition and is essentially back where the player started.
