My swing (tomz)

4 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, I'm 48 and have started playing golf two years ago. A couple of months ago I started with Evolvr and Stephan K. as my instructor. The tips he gave me (weight forward, still head) have helped to give a lot more consistency. I've mainly been on the range and have a handicap of 36.

After the last video I posted on Evolr (see below) he gave me these drills (and the video at the bottom):

Next time show me the drill in a practice swing and then after that go ahead and hit the ball.

1. Top of your swing (pause)
2. Start down to club shaft parallel, laying the club down and left knee flexing toward the target
3. Arm parallel in the follow through

Until now I was (more or less) able to apply the drills Stephan gave me, but with this drill I'm completely lost. I tried it as shown in his video, but it just doesn't work. I hit the ground before the ball, the ball shoots of in a 45° angle to the right, etc.

Could somebody please give me more insight on the aim of this drill and where Stephan wants to lead me?

Thanks, Tom

You could ask @sk golf on evolvr, but basically it's because you do the opposite, and have to feel more of the motion he's showing you, as you can see here:

In other words, you're steep and swinging left, and he wants you shallower and swinging out to the right a bit more.

@Tomz lvr, send in a practice swing and one with the ball.  After I see those, we may or may not need to make adjustments from there.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
