What are you working on, @RFKFREAK?

Keeping my hands high and wide on the backswing.  Overdrew the ball a ton in today's session.

Less golf, more poker!!! Or be like me, do a lot of both!

 Haven’t been around much but glad to see your still working on the swing. I need to get some video and update my thread.

I wish!  You guys only play once a month and did I see correctly, you might go back to offline?

Let's see what your swing looks like.  You're retired, right?  Are you not finding enough time to practice and play?

Murderous round today - shot a 113.

Full swing was a disaster as I was hooking pretty much everything left and when I didn't, my contact was bad, either toeing the ball or hoseling it putting people lives in danger...twice.  9 penalty strokes and 3 alone on the second hole.   Best hole was 18 where I finally got a GIR and made my only par.

Were your feet aligned to the right?

Think about the ball flight laws. I understand how if the ball feels like it's going left, it feels like you should aim more right, but then that makes the ball go MORE left and hook MORE…

I was conscious about where my feet were and noticed on a few divots that my clubface at the bottom of the swing was closed to the target line.  I honestly think my mechanics were sloppy because I was tired.  I have not been getting much sleep the last few night, including last night, trained before going out to play, and walked the course on a hot humid day.

Okay. Feet left if anything, face a little right (so the ball has room to draw) if anything.

I'm planning on getting a few range sessions this week so I can get a sense if today was an anomaly or an issue that I have fix.

 

Putting was better, though

Brutal day shooting a 113 yesterday filled with lots of inconsistent contact and pulls so back at it today.  Earlier videos in this session I noticed (as @iacas had pointed out to me a few days ago) that I have been hitting the ball on the toe of the clubface so, these are my last two swings of the session with my 6I where I worked on redirecting my path a little more outward with my arms and started making some solid contact.  Pulled very few today so there was that bonus.  Planning on working on hitting it in the center of the clubface more tomorrow.

So, @iacashad pointed out to me that I have been hitting the ball off the toe and to concentrate on hitting it it in the center of the face more often.  I was under the impression that many of the mishits were obscenely fat but I'm starting to think that, based on video that I've take, that my clubface get out of control and picks up a lot of Mother Earth b/c of the strike being on the extreme part of the toe.  Case in point:

I know I'm preaching to the choir, though, as to the importance of taking video, because, as we all know, feel ain't real.

I've rarely practice with my 3W but thought I'd give it a shot and really felt good about hitting in off the face a lot more consistently than I ever have in a practice session.  Ball flight it a little lower than I'd like but contact is definitely a lot more off the center than it ever has been.

Hit some balls and finished up with 3W.  Contact was pretty uneven, so with my last ball decided to record my swing and ofc, I hit it solid, just with a low ball flight.  Thinking maybe it's ball position, maybe a bit more forward.  Should have gotten a FO.

Try different positions and face angles. I play it off my left heel with an open face. For my swing, it’s a push draw that goes where the face was pointed, not my toe line, and will go higher. You need to play around and see what’s best for you.

Yeah, i think one session with just my 3W would probably help more than 4-5 swings in one session 😂

When I practice general ballstriking, all I use is my driver, 3w, and driving iron.

I typically use my 6I! and then a few swings using whatever club i also want to get a feel for.

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.

    • Kansas isn’t a great team. Which is more impressive: Oregon beating OhioSt quite soundly or OSU beating Maryland by 40?
    • Two videos today… And then one I've filmed for some Evolvr students:  
    • Depends on the ranked team, and also by what ranking you are talking about.  Is there much difference between the 30th best team and 25th best team? Well, if one team beats the other, they suddenly get a bump because that 25th team is now ranked! By saying, "How many ranked teams did you beat." It disregards that there isn't much difference between the 25th to maybe 40th team in the country. Sometimes, teams are grossly misranked in the AP poles.  You should.  I posted it before, the odds of having a scoring margin above 40 is not easy to do, and of all the games played it doesn't happen that often. Credit needs to be given for that.  What is more impressive, OSU beating Maryland by 40+ or OU beating Kansas State by 6? Guess what, by metrics, Kansas State and Maryland are basically the same team. It would be a pick'em game if KSU played Maryland. The question then becomes, what the heck was OU doing! When comparing OSU versus OU, that becomes a comparison point. Against, what would be similar opponents on paper, OSU won by 40+, and OU won by 6.  Yep they did. Yes I have them ranked above Oregon. Oregon has not done their job by winning out, and by struggling with their weak schedule. For all intense and purposes, OSU has played just a slightly harder schedule than Oregon. Oregon has average 7.6 scoring margin against their opponents. OSU has averaged scoring margin of 30.  For those who like AP polls, coaches polls... Coaches and AP polls have Oregon below Ohio State. Most people can understand that head to head matchups are not the final say when looking at which teams are actually better than others. It just meant they were better that day.  You make it sounds like the best teams in the country don't play cupcakes on their schedule. Alabama has played 2 non-power 5 teams already. They basically take 4 bye weeks every season.
