New Evolvr drill with an alignment stick.  I had it going all the way to my neck, but I found that very distracting.  The idea is to help me prevent over-the-top swings.  If I have a OTT, I hit the stick.  I'll keep moving the stick closer as I get going. If it is too close, I hit it on the backswing.  My backswing is good per my instructor, so I don't want to mess with that.  I did notice that my hips are moving slightly back on the driver face on video.  I will have the keep that in mind for the next session.

Not to be outdone by @billchao 's pumpkin mat, I'm rocking a ladybug mat in the videos below. :-D

Swings look good, @boogielicious ! Those other guys don't realize the themed mats are the true secret to changing the picture ;-)

Really liking that stick drill for you @boogielicious , great progress with @sk golf .

I also like these swings, just make sure the knees/thighs come together as you do it to get the weight off the right foot.

@mvmac and @sk golf

Will this drill help with this as well as the bottle drill?

I'm slowly seeing improvement with the changes. Ball flight is getting higher. It still have some misses but the hooks are disappearing. Yesterday I played a par three course with my wife, friend and my godson. I focused on a better finish, the A8-9 part of my priority pieces. I've noticed recently that as I tighten up during a round, my finish gets shorter. So the focus was to keep the finish the same. Ball flight stayed consistently high even with the five iron. Flight was slight draw to slight fade. The most fun was working with my godson. This was his first real course play. He's done the range and another par three that has mats for tees. He did well for a first timer. On the 8th, he had a 80 yard shot. My wife had just stuck a similar shot to < 1 foot. I lined him up, put the ball at the right point in his stance. He stuck it to 1 foot! Who's your caddie?!

Here are a few of practice videos with sand shots. I notice while filming that I was standing more like a full swing shot, so I emphasized getting my body more in the proper sand shot stance. My stance is not very wide. When I get it wider, I tend to have more mishits.

This first video is with a 58-12 wedges. I'm about 10 yards from the pin with maybe 4 yards of green to work with. I seem to have more trouble with the higher lofted wedge either with not taking enough sand or hitting it thin.

The second video is with a 54-14. I have better success with this club and a 52-14 if I carry that. These shots felt much better and were much closer.

I'd concentrate on two things:

  • Spread your feet more, bend your knees more, and get a bit lower. This will expose more bounce. You don't need to or want to be so tall in the bunker.
  • I like the soft arms in the follow through, but I don't love them rolling over each other. The arms should stay soft and even collapse slightly while the face stays pointed toward the sky. So… not the picture below.

Attached are a couple of videos I submitted for my Evolvr lesson. In the DTL video I am working on the feel of getting my hands further out at A5. If they are too far back at A5, my right elbow gets stuck, my shaft steep and the swing goes over the top. The first swing was better than the second, but overall the feel works well.

 

For the face on, I am working on the centered hip turn. The feel is getting my right pocket to move towards the target at A4 so my hips and swing center don't sway back. I am also working on getting the knees to close more from A5 to A8 to help the weight shift forward. I am still struggling with that. My right foot is still planted past A5.

Finally getting back to outdoor practice video. I sent in my first videos for Evolvr in a couple of months. I will be posting some practice videos here soon.

I played 9 on my birthday and the course was in great shape. I made good contact for the most part, which felt good. Shot a 44. I did have one hole with a triple due to a bad hook off the tee OB.

@boogielicious  Are you really a 12.6 handicap?  Your swing looks great!

He's a sandbagger :-P

    • Main goal: - Drop my handicap index from 20 to 15 or lower. I think I can achieve this through: - Getting much better at chipping. I blade or chunk waaaay to many chips. - Continuing improving my driver. I used to always hit a massive slice. Now I sometime do, but not always due to trying to keep my hands closed. But to get my hands closed I have been using a very strong grip. So when I don't slice I will hit somewhere from low baby fade to low baby draw. While definitely an improvement, there is still more room to go.   How I plan to achieve this: - Take a couple lessons. I've done this the past 2 or 3 seasons and it has definitely improved my game. - Actually practice more often. I rarely go to the range and even more rarely the chipping green. I will try and change that this year and hopefully go at least once a week. -Try and golf more. I'm a mature student so I don't have tonnes of discretionary income at the moment. But last season I didn't golf as much as I did the season prior. Playing regularly makes such a huge difference so I want to make sure that I'm getting those swings in.

    • This is getting into "what is an isn't a sport" territory, but Raymond Ceulemans absolutely dominated 3 cushion carom billiards.  He won 21 world championships, 19 of them coming between 1963 and 1985. On top of that he also won 3 silver and 4 bronze. His first gold came in 1963, and his last in 2001. 
    • Okay, well then would you have any recommendations for someone who hits their irons well, but struggles to hit woods and hybrids? I've heard for years and years that woods and hybrids are supposed to be easy to hit, and for me they just aren't.
