Thanks @mvmac. Boy, does he get the hands ahead @ A6:

Yes but that's not how he plays golf. This is just swings he sends to students.

This would be closer to his "play" A6-7. Shallow divot here.

Oh, I didn't know that. That clears up a lot!

There should be a third party Mac O'Grady FAQ out there, as much as I'd guess he wouldn't like that. :-)

I think this is 90ish, but I straighten the left knee too soon, or something too soon, throwing all the angles alway prematurely.

You're doing fine. Stop being so picky. :)

If those aren't 90, they're close enough to keep doing that and move on to something else. 60 or whatever it was before was not enough… what you're doing here is.

Looks good enough to take to the course.

Ha ha. I've been in hunker down tunnel vision range mode for awhile, using Analyzr like crazy, looking at vids of other swings and just watching over and over again, marking up with lines circles and dots in trying to figure things out mode. It's gonna be easier to play now that I have a visual of my swing burned into my head and I've made my peace with how it looks. In the vid above I'm trying to get the R shoulder down/tilt faster and the tip out move from the top seems to have gone away.

Moved front foot more towards target, softer right arm, shoulder less down going back, more lateral and behind, crush the can on lead foot on transition from downswing.

Unfortunately, I can't get them all going at the same time. I can get the head steadier.

And I can do the can thing, but both at the same time, not easy but I feel I'm close.

A little thing I do to be less ball bound when trying changes. I'm about a foot further away from the ball and I step towards ball and then hit. Here I'm trying to get used to a weaker lead hand grip. Lead wrist is more bowed than usual at impact and past.

Doing a reverse Duval/Sorenstam with the head. I find that it keeps me from dipping/early tilting whatever that causes my head to drop in the beginning of the BS plus it helps it from translating back a little. Wondering if I should use this for Key #1.

Picked up a couple of new things.

  • When I line up my feet to point straight out (90 degrees to target line) from my pov standing up, they are actually pointing out 10-15 degrees. Don't have to purposely point out toes, it's automatic. If I do on purpose, it's too much.
  • I tend to set up open a tad. Have to feel closed to be square.
  • Was starting to tilt head away from target on setup, had to undo that, feel like I'm tilting head towards target to be "neutral".
  • Working on right shoulder down, weight going from right heel to left toe, key #1 and firing arms and hands.

I noticed a couple of things that I'm just going to mention and maybe they really aren't important! Is it possible that your left knee is going more in than needed, to the point that your right knee locks? It just looks like your hip turns too much if there is such a thing.. Maybe you could consciously try not to lock the right knee and bring the left knee more down than in on the BS? The other thing is you are basically flat footed at impact, and I wonder if that is a key#2 issue? Your right foot banks, but well after impact, I'm thinking it needs to be slightly before.. Maybe from A6 you could just bank your right foot slowly into A7 to get the feel down.. Maybe I'm just way off base, just wanted to chime in as I know you have good understanding of the swing! Cheers!

That's what I'm seeing. There really isn't much transfer forward from A4-6.

[quote name="mvmac" url="/t/65993/my-swing-nevets88/90#post_1023116"] That's what I'm seeing. There really isn't much transfer forward from A4-6. [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/102276/] [/URL] [/quote] You're both absolutely right. I think I'm so keyed in on keys 1 and 4 to the detriment key 2. I'm guessing my hips should be more forward and the back of my right heel should be showing in the dtl it's not. Also too focused on firing the arms. Key 1 is bothering me too, much head bobble, a leftover from me misinterpreting Stack and Tilt. Also too focused on my transition from top of BS to downswing,

I do something similar except closed with my feet.  I noticed it when I was sending in Evolvr videos.  I have to consciously move my front foot back at set up.

    • I have been stuck on both the home course (which I haven't played as much as usual) and on the away courses. I have 8 more to go on the home course and just #14 on the away composite. I had several good opportunities that stopped on the lip, both putting and chipping. It's kind of annoying at this point. On the home front, I am not sure why I can't make any progress on the sheet, as some of those holes left are gettable, particularly #1 (but I don't warm up and am just happy with a par there), but I haven't got them, lol!  It's not like I am suddenly making fewer birdies, but they are not on the holes I need them on.
    • Doh, I saw this after I posted the pic, lol.
    • Scott Fawcett had some interesting bits on the latest How's My Hand Path podcast. He said something like when Bryson was in college or just got on tour, can't remember, he showed him two swings, his regular and something like the one we see now. So it was something he had in his bag, although probably less polished,  way back when. 211. Sick.  
    • Was windy today, and didn't get above 50 F during my round. Played the short course (par 71 cr 63) and shot an 83 (43-40). Hit the ball reasonably well most of the day. Missed all birdie putts, of which I had 4 that I would consider reasonably makeable (within 15 feet or so), including stuffing it to 3.5 ft on 18, only to miss on the low side.
