I don't see any animal abuse going on here... You've got a good swing, @colin007 . Funny how we are always our worst critics.

If any of y'all WANT a picture of @colin007 humping a goat, send me a PM.

EJ, that was supposed to be only for you...

Uhm, not so much, no:

would you say that there has been improvement in the above pic compared to last years impact position below?

I have been trying to work on getting my weight/hips forward more, hoping that would help with my flip.  i'm trying to get it through my thick skull that flipping is a lot of times the result of not getting my weight forward.  I also struggle with my upper center moving forward along with the hips, which pretty much forces me to flip or else I wont hit the ball...

Of course! The new impact (though a bit closed) looks quite good!

well, for poops and chortles, I am posting this here - it was posted already in another thread but im putting it here for insight.  I know its not the greatest of angles, and the lighting is poor, but if theres anything you feel like throwing out there, go for it.

I apologize for the extended and gratuitous ass shot.

You don't have to be sorry for that.. It's your friend who should be sorry, but I won't mention his name (he knows who he is).. I would question how much of a friend he really is though if I were you! Hahahaha

I know, right!?! Lol, he's good stuff, I had actually completely forgotten about taking any kind of vid, so he gets props for remembering that.

What?  I was only trying to get your best side.

Although, good point about the angle.  I think this was our last hole and I had just thought of it so, rushed it a bit.

I use him for his car. :dance:

Here is a new vid, 5 iron down the line, I think the angle is ok. Any thoughts? I'd like the backswing to be a touch shorter. Feels too flat footed at impact, not sure about my hips if they should be more open or not. Contact on this shot was not great but I'm sure all my swings look about the same.

You could probably have the hips more open at impact, but I don't know if that's your priority piece.

How are you hitting the ball? Are you missing left and right?

Yup. Some left, some right. If I leave the face open I get this gross high fade. If the ball starts left it'll keep going left. Ball still goes too high for my liking.

Is your butt coming off its wall too? Or just the head?

Not the butt. Not until after impact. Just the head. Looks like about three inches?

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
