There was one tee this Sunday that I almost moved. It was pointing 30 or more degrees away from the fairway. We were staring at it like WTF!

I swear, there are people on the greens maintenance crew who never played golf in their life...

Filmed my driver and 6 iron swing for Evolvr. I’m working on alignment and set up with the shaft pulled back from being pressed forward. This is to help get my swing from coming too far inside. Played a couple of rounds with this set up with some improvements, but also had some bad misses both days. I’m wondering if having the ball too far forward with the driver contributed to this

For the irons, and over draw is the miss. When I set up more right, I get a push 😜 it was so humid this morning I had to wear rain gloves in the end.

Working on more secondary axis tilt in my set up pre my Evolvr lesson.

Not sure why you're doing that. Why don't you just wait until you get feedback on what you should work on? :-P

It is my priority piece. He told me to work on it and send in a video after a week or two. I had sent in a video two weeks ago. This is an update.

Range work today for about an hour and a half. Warmed up then worked on driver and 6 iron set up, takeaway and downswing.
 

Started with some mapping drills hitting from A5 to A9. Then a few “Mac” drills stopping at A9 to get warmed up. Then I slowed things way down and worked on set up with more secondary axis tilt. I did slow takeaway, transition to A5 feeling the club head drop behind me. Then slow swings, maybe 50% through impact to A9. I really wanted to dial in the feel of the shaft flattening and swinging around to impact and not down. I eventually speed things up with a few full swings looking at ball flight. For the most part then started right and curved depending on how open the face was.

I repeated this work with a 6 iron using the same process. 6 iron flight was high and drew a little bit.

I finished with wedges and long pitches. Using the pitch swing feel, I can hit a PW about 75 yard comfortably from a hard surface. I may use this more from tight lies. It seems to be more forgiving.

Working on secondary axis tilt at address and key 5 club face control. I obviously can’t see ball flight, but the feel is keeping the hands and wrists from turning over too soon after impact. On the range it was feeling like I was trying to fade the ball by holding off the wrists turning over. The shirt I’m wearing in the face on is perfect to see secondary axis tilt!😀

Yes. I’ve made some mods since it first put it together. I got tired on hitting on the slope of my driveway.

The Covid Day 5 drill is similar.

Update - I haven’t been able to swing a club for over a week. I pulled or tore some shitty little muscle in my back near my shoulder blade doing renovations on my cottage. Not sure which muscle it is (maybe the rhomboideus major?), but the sanding motion or any motion that moves the shoulder blade in and out feels like I am being stabbed. I can’t even do pitches.

I’ve been icing and heating it and trying not to aggravate it. The thing that stinks is the renovation is almost complete and it was finally golf time. Major bummed right now.

Yeah, so sorry to have heard that in our chat. Those are tough to "help" too because the shoulder blade often gets in the way. Is it tender when you push on it? If so maybe it's more external.

Consider going to someone who can "cup" you. Cupping and/or KT tape can pull the skin away so more blood can get to the area and help you to heal faster.

Sorry to hear this Scott. But yeah, Erik’s right with this. If you can palpate the area and it’s tender you’d be best with NSAIDs and Ice/heat applications 20min each with 10minutes spacing.

It’s not tender to the touch and I can massage it with my left hand. I will look into KT tape.

Thanks. I’ve been cycling ice/heat. It’s weird because other motions have no issue. I can do arm circles and other motions with no pain, so it’s probably not the traps or lats. The other weird one is if I move suddenly like if I drop something, or bump into something when I’m carrying something light, it will tweak it.

Upper back/shoulder injuries are weird like that. My right shoulder has been jacked up for as long as I can remember (I can slip it out of its socket partially just sitting here typing this) and it makes me prone to muscle injuries around my scapula. Some motions don’t bother me at all and others I basically can’t do without experiencing pain. For example, right now I can’t extend my neck to gargle without pain, but I have no problems when swinging a golf club. Sometimes I injure something that only hurts when I’m trying to push, like when doing a bench press. Once in a while I’ll hurt it so badly I need to put my arm in a sling just to support its own weight. I have to be very careful with any movement that involves extending my arm above shoulder level or internally rotating it. Both at the same time is a recipe for disaster.

Hope you get better soon.

Thanks Bill. I’m used to managing little nagging injuries. This one is a PITA.

    • Went 6 days with no golf due to course closures here at Pinehurst. Played #8 today and surprisingly played well, 12/14 fairways, 9 GIR and 29 putts. 39/38 for a 77. The Groundskeepers built a snowman on the Par 5 6th. A few fairways still had some snow in some locations but the course was playable. Good to get out again.   But more snow is possible this Friday into Saturday.
    • Bill Haas could hit it 25 yards farther, but hates seeing the ball get really high up in the air. He feels like he has very little control over it when it gets up there.
    • Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off. Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much. Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.
    • Does this answer it for you? FlightScope Speed & Acceleration Profiles - Launch Monitor, Golf Ball Tracking | Golf Simulators | FlightScope.com Find out why FlightScope golf launch monitors' speed & acceleration profiles are huge for club fitting. Check our sample data sets to see it for yourself. Or this? Oh, I gotcha now. The stand has some nice features, but mainly… I can note what notch creates a tilt of 12°, or 17° as preferred by Awesome Golf, or 16° or whatever… and then put the back leg in those notches without needing the tool. I can also do this more easily on uneven floors — in either direction — to adjust for the tilt or roll of the floor itself. If my floor slopes down and to the left, 12° with the tool won't be 12° and level with the Mevo+, so I can use the screw legs to adjust the Mevo+ to be 12°/0°.
