My Swing (Colin007)

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

Okay, so then you can do some work with your head staying on a literal wall. No ball, just see what feels are required - likely more pivoting up and around with the left shoulder while the right drives out and down a bit more. But maybe something different. Try it against an actual wall and see what your cause is.

Thanks Erik, that makes sense, I'll try it out

More atrocious swings. Both were ugly little wipey swings, off the bottom of the face, thin cuts. Head is moving off the wall, just garbage. [VIDEO]https://youtu.be/2hqmweWllRM[/VIDEO] [VIDEO]https://youtu.be/RbhW6yeGg4s[/VIDEO] Thanks to @RFKFREAK for taking the video and not throwing up.

So what? We TEACH some people to move their head off the wall a little bit sometimes. Doesn't appear to be your priority. What are you doing right now? What shots are you hitting? Etc.?

I played a decent round today, shot 79 which is really good for me. Ugh. Anyways, I hate to say it but I have a two way miss. I can push slice it and pull hook it. I'm dismayed with my driver because I feel like the variety of shots I hit shows that I have wild inconsistency with my path and clubface control. I also don't have good consistency with where I hit the ball on the clubface. I would love to have more control of the driver. I'm just guessing here, but it feels like with the driver, my club face closing rate is way too fast and that leads to the inconsistency. I'm trying to feel my arms "stretching" through impact but it feels much easier to do that with my irons.

Two more absolutely disgusting swings. I know the angles are crap, but the wife was doing me a favor.

Lots of motion this way instead of around.

Is there any reason why this might be more difficult (for me) to do with the driver than with the irons? I get that rotational feeling much more easily with my irons, the feeling of turning through the shot, of puring the strike.

I hate myself.

Because the ball's on a tee, and the club has less loft. Sure, there are plenty of reasons.

    • Yes - I saw those figures. I'd love to say it's unbelievable..........😘
    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing things you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
