My Swing (boogielicious)

First post since last summer’s shut down due to injuries. Below are 7-iron and driver videos. I’m working on the pitch elbow feel because I was straightening my right arm too soon and casting. I’ve made some progress after getting my Evolvr analysis. Still have a way to go, but I see progress.

April 13 - Did more net work. My lesson has me focusing on the feeling like my right elbow stays bent through impact (pitch elbow). Stephan also wants me to not to push my hips as far forward on the practice swings as I am doing below. I should feel more rotation. So I will have to film that.

I also worked a little on flatten the shaft at A4 as seen on the DTL views. It feels like a Ricky Fowler move, but in reality is just flattening (Feel ain't real!). What this does is help me keep that pitch elbow feel. I feel like I can rotate, keep the elbow bent and moving around my body and keep the club on plane.

I think the 7 iron is coming along. The A7 looks decent and I feel like I am making clean contact. I need to keep rotating more so A8 will be better.

The driver is still not as good at A7. A4 looks good, but I am still straighten the elbow too soon. I will keep working on this for a few weeks before sending in another video to Evolvr. I may send a pitching video while I work on this.

A funny thing about the yellow strap. I use it as a target to see where my ball is launching. If I hit it dead on, it flies all over! I may switch to a rope.

My driver seems to always go right of the strap, which is dead on DTL from my feet alignment.  My irons will go just right or hit the strap. I use the same grip on both, but the driver tends to be a fade or push fade and the irons a draw. I hate the driver hook, so I will play with this fade as I start the season and see how it goes. I don't want to change anything while I am working on the pitch elbow.

Very cool to see someone with the same/similar priority piece working through this. Cheers to you for working through it with slow and specific swings. That’s new for me, but I’m trying to do that as well.

Cool station Scott. Level stance, auto ball feed.

It is a work in progress. Sometimes it ejects balls right back at me. :-P I've got to optimize the tension on the net.

I played on Sunday (9 holes) and Tuesday (18). For the most part, putting and pitching were very good. Irons were mediocre with fat shots and pulls. Driver, the first day 4/5 nice drivers with slight fade and one slice. Tuesday, the driver was all over the place.

I felt really out of sorts in the front nine but recovered a bit on the back. I was hitting a straight draw/pull draw with good contact with the irons and just played that way on the back nine aligning right. 

Lots of work to do to get back to form.

May 20 - Worked on my backswing and downswing to A6. My Evolvr instructor suggested an few things including not flattening the shaft as much at A4 and adding palmar flexion from A4 to A6 to square up the shaft. I added yellow tape to the sole of the driver to see it better. Still looks slightly open at A6 with the driver.

Worked on my backswing per my Evolvr lesson. I’m having trouble squaring the club face in the downswing and I was taking the clubhead back too inside. So I’m working on the takeaway from A2-3 to keep the head outside the hands, steeper at A3, and the face more closed at A4. Setting it this way should make it easier on the down swing.

I’m also taking the club back slower as rushing my swing has been an issue. Below are driver and 7 Iron. The 7 iron needs a bit more work. I also may need a tad more secondary axis tilt at setup.

July 2 

I'm on vacation  but still am working on my swing. Below I am working on new items from my Evolvr instructor with the aim of reducing hooks. I was having a problem with my grip feeling like it was closing the face of the club. We kept the left hand strong but moved the left thumb more on top. Then my right hand goes over the left thumb. We then lowered the handle at address and swing doing punch shots holding at A8-9 for a second or two, then going to finish. The aim is to keep the club face from closing to much before impact. 

Still a ways to go to get the finish he wants, but ball flight has been better.

    • Day 80: Worked on grip and finding my clubface awareness/palmar flexion with 7-iron. Frustrated today because I struggled to get the clubface square; it was launch high right, or low left, with just a sprinkling of good ones, but I was not consistently hitting my launch window on the net. Luckily I have a lesson next week and hope to have a better path to work it out.
    • With legal substances? Yes I agree. You can’t be serious in thinking a tech head like BDC would use banned substances. That’s completely against his ideology on how he looks at golf I believe.
    • I will leave mechanics and technical stuff to others. You can do a few things that will  lessen the impact of playing an unfamiliar course.  1. Play a variety of golf courses, different styles, standards, lengths and conditions. It’s a lot easier to score well on a course you play all the time. Playing different types of golf can help sharpen your skills.  2. Read a book by the guy who owns this golf website. Then use it to pick a plan for each hole and shot.  3. Don’t sweat the score, just enjoy playing golf somewhere different
