Yeah this isn't a "mw swing" thread. Your in the general golf talk forum so this is portably best in the course Vlog threads.. 

I'd like to put it in the course vlog thread. I just can't seem to figure out how to imbed the YouTube video into the post.

Yay, I got this in the right place. 
Okay, here's my VLOG. I shot all of this myself way back in August using my own Samsung Galaxy S8. I didn't have a tripod or anything so I just put the phone on the cart, or a head cover or used 4 tees to make a little stand for it on the ground. Anyway, the footage is good and bad. A couple times the phone fell over, but most of the 9 holes is here. The other issue I had was that it was pretty windy that day and all you hear on the audio is horrible wind noise. So, I edited out nearly all the audio. I replace it with music from Here Come the Mummies. (Hey I was working on Halloween stuff recently so... eh?) 

Anyway, I welcome comments on my swing, my pre-shot routine (that's a joke cuz I don't have one.). Let me know if you like the video. What I can do better, anything you like. I'd like to do more of these. It's kinda fun to do when you're playing alone.

Not a bad 9 at all.. Good work. I like your swing. Yeah not much of a preshot but in your case may not be a bad thing. Set up and go without much fuss. Also you seem committed to a full finish each time even though you come out of it a bit after the finish.

All good stuff though. Keep at it.

Thanks, I appreciate the input. My goal for 2019 is going to be working on balance. And literally I mean not falling out of my finish. I noticed when I was putting together the video that I tend to fall out of it pretty often.

Cool Chet! Don’t envy your weather. Why didn’t you just put your putting device in front of the hole? Cheers! Thanks for posting.

I don't know. I guess because it would have made the putt 4 inches shorter???  I tried to set the device down in a place where it made the putt equally as difficult as it would normally have been, yet I wanted to feel confident that I wouldn't touch the flag stick... Does that make sense? I actually got the idea from a Mark Crossfield video. Although, he used a "Putt-out" device. I don't have a "Putt-out" device so this was my solution. 

I made the decision before I started that if on the slim chance I made a hole in one, knocked one in from the fairway or even chipped in, I was just going to leave the ball in the hole. Although, between the weather, and the fact that I was the only person there, it was probably pretty low risk. I still wasn't going to touch the flagstick. Not sure if you can tell in the video, but there are pool noodles in the bottom of all the cups. One hole did have what looked like a perfectly good Callaway Chrome Soft left in it. So, perhaps somebody else used a similar method playing the day before me. 

I'm sure my method would disqualify my round for handicap purposes. But, I was also playing alone, so I don't think it matters. It was just nice to get out. My swing started off pretty lousy (I like to use the excuse I went right from the parking lot to the 1st tee.... but... ) It started coming around the last 4 holes. It actually felt really good the last 2 holes. So, I got that going for me.

Really enjoyed that @ChetlovesMer! I like playing in the rain because it keeps the posers away. How did you keep the camera dry? 

I just used my Samsung Galaxy S8... It's waterproof. … in theory anyway.

I did stick it in my pocket as I walked from hole to hole.

Sorry about the tee shot on 2... That was a whole LOT of ugly!

It's my GO-TO shot. In good weather it can be a fairway finder. In the wind I played in during this video it can get ugly. See tee-shot on 5. That was supposed to be a gentle fade, in that wind it turned into a ballooning banana slice. 👍😉👍

It was in the air so long it felt like I could have almost run underneath it and caught it.

@ChetlovesMer That's a cool VLOG with the shot tracer. Well done sir!

Thank you. It's only the second one I've ever done. But I have 2 of the last 3 on this thread, so I'm feeling pretty cool about that.

    • Do you consider Ben Hogan's book: "Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf" to be outdated?  "high speed video, pressure traces, and stuff like GEARS" are tools used to measure data points, these data points are taken from high level players and are then used by instructors to modify golfers swings into swinging like those measured players. The you tube videos from Athletic Motion Golf are prime examples. What do you call that "swing style"?
    • So I started tracking my stats this year and it appears I was a little over ambitious with my goals lol Goal was 50% fairways I am currently at 39.6% I'm more than long enough I should be keeping the driver in the bag outside of a handful of holes per round instead of using it on virtually every moderately straight par 4 no matter the danger I could inevitably put myself in. Goal was 50% GIRs I am currently at an abysmal 31% but I've noticed my GIR when i hit a fairway is 52.5% while when I miss it is just 21.3% so I need to be ok with losing some yardage in order to find the fairway more often which should make a lot of things fall into place. I have also been battling my irons all year if I cant go driver wedge I've been pretty useless.  Goal was for scrambling to be over 45% I am currently at 22% which is probably my most surprising statistic I thought I would be holing more clutch putts. I set my putt goal for 33 and that is right where i am now at 33.3 putts per round. I have not been 3 putting much at all I am currently on a 73 hole 3 putt free streak I have been good at lag putting but I'm not holing as many 8-12 footers as I think I should be. The amount of 2 putt bogies I have is incredible.  My ultimate goal is to get to single digits this year I am currently at a 12.2 (down from what I'm guessing was 18-20+ last year) I need to keep putting in the work. Knowing my stats has helped me realize what changes I need to make strategy wise and where i need to improve my ball striking the most.   
    • Round 2 results: . . . . . . Different groupings and different weather conditions (hot with gusty winds out of the northeast; IMO ideal for this course).   The pros were grouped with a 12 and 6 (the 12 shot his career best).  I played with 3 other mid to high single digits.  Member 1 and Member 3 were paired with a former Div 1 collegiate woman golfer and a 10.    Member #1 – 67 Pro #2 – 68 Pro #1 – 70 Me – 74 Member #3 – 77 For S&G’s the former Div1 collegiate played from the woman’s tees and shot 86.   Nerves were nonexistent (probably because the pros were playing ahead of me).  Hyper focused would be the best way to describe my mindset.   Only missed 2 fairways (both misses were small misses) and hit 14 greens.  Iron play could have been better and was battling a slight case of the lefts.  Was +1 heading into 17 and tripled.  18 is a legit birdie hole and I missed a 6 footer.  Solid round with one major mistake.   Member 1 played his usual consistent game. Member 3 struggled off the tee and had to scramble.  Both pros played well from tee to green but never got anything going on the greens.         Will post Round 3 results later today….. lol, then don't follow or participate.  Better yet, block me.  Problem solved.   You are something else, same BS many years later.....   And for the rest of you, screen shot this response because it will be deleted.  Or maybe I'll get banned 🤣
    • Strategy is discussed. That’s all. This guessing is dumb, I agree. Just post the results.
    • There is no such thing as a Homer Kelley swing. The Golfing Machine is not a book that describes a single swing style, like the Stack and Tilt swing or the Moe Norman swing. Plus it’s horribly outdated, written before the age of high speed video, pressure traces, and stuff like GEARS.
