My Swing (nevets88)

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.

Interesting. I guess we all have our idiosyncrasies.

With regards to feet, I should have noticed this, but there's a perspective issue. If you look at the mat borders, they're coming at you slanted, but they're pointed straight at the camera. So if your feet are pointed straight, they will still look like they're pointing out slanted. The angle of the camera makes your feet look more pointed out. I think... Instructors? Am I correct, incorrect?

Early extension problem. Got a lesson from instructor, will work on the left knee.

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.

Getting really on top of the ball now, still working on the early extension, keeping knees bent, left foot pushing down, left knee forward.

Working on longer clubs, last round they were terrible. Video showed me I was taking it outside too much. Looking forward to next round. Both of these started straight or right, faded just a tad.

A little arm runoff on the BS in dtl vid. Also working on extending the arms. My right arm tends to chicken wing around 6.5 to 7.5

A little early extension never killed anyone. Rarely does it even hurt people. It's a speed piece. Focus on something else. :)

I was thinking weight forward?  If you look a few frames after this at A7.5 & A8 you will notice that you just looked bunched up where your head and shoulders are because you are not able to create any secondary axis tilt because of the lack of weight forward.. You do keep your head behind the line, but again without the weight forward it is very hard for your arms to release out towards the target and instead end up being forced to come around your body.

At least that's what I'm thinking!

It could be. I barely touched the driver and long irons at the range this whole season. This is the first time I used driver on the range in earnest this year. Maybe not such a wise thing to focus so much on the 6 iron. That may be throwing me off. I'll give it another week or so and make it my next lesson and see what my instructor says. I think it might be a key #4 issue as well. I tend not to get my hands as deep the longer the club.

Cool, I know you already analyze your swing enough and probably seen what I mentioned, but just wanted to participate that's all!

You're right. My weight needs to be more forward. But I think it's not forward because I'm not trying to get forward, but my arms aren't extending. When they extend good, it gets my weight more forward. Also, I need to get the rust off the longer clubs. My right arm is rubbery in the driver swing. Plus I'm not rehinging the wrists. And shrugging the shoulders.

Here's a better swing with more extension with a hybrid. I'm really throwing out the right arm here. Like I'm cracking a whip. I ran out of balls before I could get to do this feeling with a driver. Couldn't get another bucket, had to leave :-(

Trying to get rid of this, which happens mostly with 3H, 3W and 1W, also sometimes, the 3I.

By doing this... Keep forgetting to rehinge the club.

    • Just some video... This video is a weaker grip, just right hand more on top. I just try to keep my focus on the ball a lot more... Face on view... Not with the weaker right hand.    Right now my misses are... 1) Thin (either playable, 1-2 grooves, or just a flippy thin shot) 2) Straight draws 3) Big push cuts Got to Figure out a way to be less in to out? 
    • Played what I call my other local course today.  94 (46 / 48).  This course is one of the most improved in the area.  Really enjoyed the round.  Takeaways for the day, had pars on two hole on each side, hit 6 of 14 fairways (the balance were no more than two yards off the fairway - feeling good about the big stick), 4 of 18 GIR with another 3 nGIR, total of 40 putts, however I had 4 holes where I 3 putted.  Looking to play there again soon.  
    • Rules I see broken all the time in tournaments. Examples:  Rotating the ball in place on the green without marking.  Dropping farther than two club lengths from lateral penalty area to avoid dropping on a cart path.  Declaring unmarked bare ground as "GUR". (A USGA video actually implies this is OK.) Taking free relief for a lost ball that embedded.  Backstopping.  Other examples? How do you "protect the field" while maintaining serenity? 
    • Can I get a form check for the day 9 drill?  From the conversations as-it-happened, it seems important, and in watching the video, the swing faults described sound very familiar, to the point where one of the faults made me think "isn't that what I'm supposed to do?" ... which makes me think I probably do that, or at least on some level, am trying to. Anyway, in doing the drill today (start-and-stop), I can't help but feel I missed something, so I'm hoping I can get some feedback to let me know if I'm doing this right or wrong, in hopes I can move into doing it correctly.     
    • looks like they was already a Cleveland Guardians. An amateur roller derby team.
