My Swing (cedrictheo)

Recommended Posts

I've been Practicing Golf for: 3 years (played some when I was a kid but never practiced or got lessons)

My current handicap index is: 4.9

My typical ball flight is: Med/High Draw

The shot I'm trying to eliminate is: anything low or that curves a lot (I prefer high and straight-ish)

That's no good. Fire all the instructors you've ever seen.

How's the pitching? :) And your tempo?

The pitching is improving, my bad pitch shots seem to come from upper COG moving backwards in downswing... Also I've lightened my grip pressure which has helped with the loading piece.

I haven't given the tempo my full attention yet (as soon as weather turns and I can go play it will be priority #1). This week I've focused on shortening backswing through less extension of my lower/mid spine while hip COG moves forward. Also working on keeping my head steady during downswing (tends to move towards target a few inches).

That's a beautiful swing man.

Jealous of that garage set up too!!

Thanks! A lot of practice in the garage to get the swing to look this nice...

That's good. I should film myself throwing the wedge sometime… the one I hit when you were here was the best one I think I've ever done.

Yeah, makes sense. You're not the type to forget it, but figured you'd appreciate the reminder. You're working on the right stuff. Keep at it.

That was impressive.

I miss that super heavy wedge! Hitting high pitches with that club felt like slicing warm butter.

Oh come on, I'll spot you the $24.99 if you need it. :)

Baller status B-) Now you just need a white visor ;-)

1 is perfect and nice upgrades with 2 and 4 since the last time I saw it. 2 was a little in and 4 would get long and across the line.

Thanks, you have a good memory! I've struggled with clubhead in at 2 but have a really good feel for it right now.

Is it still PP#3 more "on top" or is it with the tempo/pacing change?

It's a combination of a few things...

PP#3 on top

Pressure in heel pad of left hand (Use this to monitor Power Accumulator #2 or wrist hinge)

Also important

rates of right elbow flexion vs. shoulder turn

Good stuff, keep up the good work. I'm working on something similar and seeing good results.

[VIDEO]http://youtu.be/Gr_VvdTYlic[/VIDEO] Need to keep my elbows closer together from 4-6... Would like to see the clubhead tracing below my right forearm from 5-6 DTL. And no space between my right elbow and body from face on view at p6. I'll be in Erie at the golf evolution with Dave Wedzik and @iacas in 1 week, excited to hear what my priority piece is in their opinion.

Here's a video of how I'm practicing the elbows closer together piece. I'm squeezing them together as much as possible throughout entire swing. Similar to the hogan illustration... [VIDEO]http://youtu.be/j2im4y1nmLg[/VIDEO]

Yep that's definitely a better 6 than the swing you posted yesterday. Look forward to hearing about your lesson/practice with Dave and Erik.

Why? We are either going to teach him the same thing we've decided randomly to teach everyone this month, or something new to experiment on him because it might be what we teach everyone next month. #insidejoke

Exactly, I need to know what to teach this month ;-)

    • I'm a high HI so you may not want to consider...But my coach said to try to increase my side bend. Think a little bit of a baseball swing. Or maybe Justin Thomas. There are some good illustrative videos online about side bend. -Best, Marv
    • Okay, I'll give it a shot.  What the heck.  If you're a right-handed golfer, starting in your stance have your elbows close together, with the insides of the elbows facing up.  At the top of the back swing, your left wrist should be flat, and your right wrist should be cocked back.   That will help you tuck in your right elbow.  Then when you start down, keep your right elbow tucked in.  Don't flip the club with your right hand.  Keep your right wrist cocked back.  Try to have your elbows close together when you hit the ball.   
    • Played my first round yesterday; shot 153, at least 10 balls lost in the water and in the woods
    • Advanced statistics and analysis in baseball is a lot more prevalent than just the Oakland A's and  the movie, but yea, the book is how the public became aware of it for the most part. Every front office in every major sport uses analysis whether they're public about it or not, most with their own proprietary systems. Judging by your comments, I'm guessing you never studied statistical analysis or forecasting. No, you can't predict the future, but you can make decisions based on trends that are most likely indicative of future performance. It's a lot more effective than simply guessing or "going with your gut." For example, if a guy misses almost every cut in a tournament with bad weather and his next one has rain in the forecast, it's a pretty safe bet he's going to miss the cut. That doesn't mean he definitely will, but his past performance indicates that is the most likely outcome. I watched a program that talked about those daily fantasy gambling sites once and the top winners all use very complicated analysis tools to predict performance of athletes. They got into some really minute details like how an athlete performs under certain weather conditions, start times, etc. They're not just picking guys blind. Zero. Billy Beane himself said the playoffs are based on luck. Baseball has a playoff format that is different than regular season play so you can build a team that can win 100 games but isn't necessarily the strongest for a best-of-five or seven series. Even if it is, you can have a couple of guys hit a slump during the playoffs and lose anyway. The announcers made a big deal in the broadcast about how great Corey Kluber was in the month of September but then he faltered in the playoff series in October against the Yankees. They just assumed he was going to continue to be lights out, but he regressed to the mean. He's still one of the best pitchers in baseball, but if you combine his performances in September and October together, you're going to get a better picture of how he is as a pitcher than if you only evaluate his performance in the arbitrary month of September (or October, for that matter). How did they do before "analytics" was introduced? A poorly managed team is poorly managed, with or without additional stats to help make decisions.
    • That doesn't seem like it's necessarily a good thing- to unexpectedly fly over your target and land on the back of the green.  It doesn't seem like something you'd want to happen.  That seems like a shot you'd want to avoid.
