 Jan 26 working on right elbow coming more in front from A4 to A6 and rotating around more than sliding hips forward. All this to get lower hands at A6. The elbow is getting a bit stuck between 5 and 6. The feel is deep hands on the backswing, then more out and around on the downswing with the elbow leading.

some progress but a ways to go.

Hi.  I'm struggling a bit with just brushing the ground slightly before the ball with the driver.  I don't hit the ball far, probably only averaging 190-200 off the tee which most friends can't understand as they say my swing looks great.

I've taken regular lessons over the last few years and at 1 point last year I upped to distance to an average of 230 which I'd be over the moon with now.  This cam from the instructor getting me to really fold my left knee in then try and kick it out at the top of the backswing.  I've gone back to this and the distance is still 190-200 but generally straight, htting maybe 70+% of fairways.  I was out with my dad yesterday and mid way through the round he said the 2 best drives I had hit, I rolled my left foot keeping the heel on the ground; I was never really conscious of lifting my left heel (I did deliberately try this a few times previously)  It made sense and felt more comfortable and did hit a couple of better and longer drives the last couple of holes and the irons were definitely better straight away.

A bit side tracked maybe but every practice swing with the driver I still brush the ground slightly and more often than not, maybe 90% of the time will catch the ground forst when teeing up properly so just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can stop this and maybe get that extra 20 or 30 yards.....

Can't seem to upload my swing I'm afraid.

Thanks.

I got 4 days of practice in a row. Worked on the same things each day from my last lesson. The first part is a drill that was shown to me from Mac O. I’m not quite holding the finish right yet.  It it is improving lower hands at A6.

Applying it to 7 iron and driver. Wearing a glove on the right hand because my thumb was dry and cracking. Still more work to do.

If you post a video of yourself using your PlaneMate, David Woods will put you in his story. He does for almost everyone. 🙂

The Evolvr, MirrorVision, PlaneMate trifecta! I will definitely film that!

Today’s work. Did PlaneMate Day 1 and 3 protocols and filmed them. For Day 1, did the drill without the ball too, but did not film. Did day 2 yesterday in the basement. Then did a few 7 iron drills from my Evolvr lesson. Filmed one full 7 iron. It was about 33F.
 

The last one of these Day 3 was done the best. Mirror Vision really helps you see that.

When you take the PlaneMate off, the club feels really weird. It’s heavy and your arms have that floating arms feeling. 

7 iron was a bit steep at A6, but overall not bad.

PlaneMate Day 4 Protocol - Finishing Form

Per the protocol, did 30 reps without the ball and then 30 reps with ball. The hard part for me is retraining my right hand/wrist from flexion through impact and keep it in extension, which I have been working on with my instructor as well. I have that tendency. I finished with 15 chips without the PlaneMate. Then worked on some 7 irons drills.

I think I may do this protocol again before moving on to get it right.

Day 5 Protocol was a little more challenging for two reasons. First, getting the feel for relaxing was a bit hard because you are resisting against the band. I got better at it, but need to do this one a few more times. Second, the clamp kept shifting. I added tape and sanded the nubs as was instructed, but it made the session a bit disjointed. I think I want the shaft to flatten a lot more too.

    • Day 4 - worked on PP of straighter right elbow, trying to stay wide. 
    • DAY 10: Before dawn (in the dark?! 😆) session in the golf pit:  Orange Whip Trainer LagShot 7i 5i-7i-9i-PW +2 Hybrids (2/3) Emphasis on slow, methodical, consistent setup. (60 min).
    • I said that the gap narrows. Good putters still putt the ball on good lines but randomness now creates some misses that wouldn’t occur on the perfect green. Poorer putters now occasionally get a good break and the ball falls in.    The worst putters, who would never make a putt on the perfect green, now might sink the occasional putt (assuming the randomness is extreme enough). But the best putters, who would never miss on the perfect green, now miss with some (random) regularity.
    • Gap remains same. The good putters adapt just like they adapt for slow and fast greens on different courses. They will ram them home to hold the line better through the bumps on short putts and lag putt more defensively to have easier 2nd putts. I had slight inclination to say the gap would even increase. BTW, the luck factor helping/hurting either group to any significant level is BS. 
    • I believe women’s club heads may also be a different weight than men’s. This is to give them a similar feel for the shorter club length and lighter shaft. If you have decent swing speed, it may be better to get fitted with your current clubs and have them adjust length, lie and swing weight as @Vinsk suggested. If they shorten the club length, they will add tip weight to get the swing weight correct.
