Your impact positions look great to me and it looks like your making good contact with the ball.  How are you playing on the course?

Pretty good right now.

I’ve entered my blue period as all artists do. 😁 Working on my PP to reduce early extension and have the hips more open at impact. Some progress but a ways to go.

Today’s work. Palmar flexion from A4 and trying to get the club face angle to match my spine angle after impact. Still a work in progress. These are higher speed swings. Most of the session was slower speed holding at A9.

I've been play more than practicing this month, but have got a couple sessions in. The focus is the same, getting my hips more open at impact. Erik added palmar flexion and not letting my wrists roll-over to my last Evolvr lesson. It is slow progress on this one. 

I also am trying to do two more things. First, I get pretty amped up on the first tee and need to slow down. So I have been working on tempo in addition to my PP. The feel is smooth transition. It is almost like I feel the club just falling at the start, but feel ain't real.

Second, maintain eye contact on the ball through impact. I have a weird habit of not looking at the ball during the downswing. When I watch through impact, for all shots, I make better contact. When I don't, contact is worse. I know it should be pretty f-ing easy, "just look at the damn ball!", but for some reason, I have trouble with this. 

I noticed it first when working on chips and pitches earlier this year. Then I started to catalog it on the course. And it is not anecdotal. 

So here are my swing from yesterday. It was stunningly humid. I was sweating profusely. I had to wear rain gloves. I have that rehearsal to impact that Stephan wants be to use and I am trying to hold off my wrists from turning over after impact. Ball flight is straight push to push draw with these when done right. 

Target lines on the net: for the 7 iron, just right of the left yellow string is actually straight ahead. For the driver, the first black line. So for the 7 iron, I am trying to hit the black line or just to the left of it and for the driver, between the two lines.

I haven’t been able to play or practice much in the last three months due to family issues, but I was able to get out yesterday and hit into my net. @nevets88 inspired me to add to my practice set up an alignment stick to help swing out more through impact. Below, I am working on that. Did mostly partials and focused on keeping the shoulder and hip turn going through impact.


With the face on, my turn is still slowing at A5 to A6, so the club head catches up. This will be part of my focus in the off season.

I obliterated the stick yesterday @nevets88😂 I was doing a mapping swing from the top and smashed it to smitherines!

Below I am working on the turn again. I still seem to slow down the shoulder turn before A6 and the club head then catches up.

Lol! I hit the sticks not infrequently during practice. Drew a little blood once. Gotta be careful! It does give you incentive to adjust the path though!

Guys, the point of using sticks (golf clubs) is to not hit them 😜

Kinda like lowest score wins?    See what I did there?   

I realize they were talking alignment sticks but I couldn't help myself! :doh:

More work on the same stuff while the weather holds. Working on the feel of the right elbow coming down and in front as the shoulders and hips turn. Left shoulder also continuing around through impacting.

I also reinforced  my stick with yellow duct tape. Safety First!

    • By Associated Press, Wire Service Content May 23, 2020, at 3:22 PM Western Montana Virus Outbreak Tied to Luxury Golf Club An outbreak of COVID-19 in western Montana is tied to an exclusive golf and country club developed by financial executive Charles Schwab. - - - - - -KATU News requested and received records from Portland's Parks & Recreation Department and discovered that from March 1 through April 6, 2019, there were 23,089 rounds of golf played at its five municipal courses. During that same time period this year, from March 1 through April 6, 2020, Portland Parks Golf saw an increase of 15% in golf rounds - 26,554 rounds of golf were played as the coronavirus outbreak spread in the Pacific Northwest. Portland golfers play through coronavirus pandemic at city courses Golfers are still swinging away at Portland's five city-owned and operated courses during the coronavirus pandemic, with more rounds being played compared to this time period last year, even as orders from the governor...
    • Torrey allows them and play seemed to speed up during a period when riding carts were not allowed. Torrey South in particular with elevated greens and a lot of green side bunkers, I can see the 2 - 3 foot area off and around the edge of the greens getting extra wear from all the push/pull cart trafic.  With a push cart and the course setup all the walkers with push carts are funneled into these small pathways as they keep the carts off the green and avoid slowing play down by making trips back to their carts if they leave them back at the fairway.  It's pretty much okay as the Kikuyu grass is so tough, otherwise it would be a problem. They should just allow and encourage players to just walk the carts right onto the green.
    • And how about a massive mower that is on the green everyday.    I don’t drive my push cart over the green, but I do drive it over tee boxes if they are in my way. The only reason is that a lot of them are battery driven and they might spin out on the green doing some damage that way if the user is not careful.  Yes they still have them and charge some for them. But they are crap and most of the people have their own and many are battery driven. 
    • Hello to everyone, new poster here.  Wanted to share my thoughts about this method...maybe not just this method, but the overall effect of an open stance on early extension. I'm 57, 5 hncp, rather thick chested and inflexible, and have struggled with early extension and flipping for many years.  Really, I'm a 10 hncp ballstriker and a 2 inside 25 yards. I have watched a few "senior" themed instruction videos to address EE, and they're almost all some theme of  - closed stance, get a deep shoulder turn, swing out to the right, and accept early extension.  None of this worked for me...my driver especially was wildly inconsistent. So, opening my stance and swinging out instantly improved my ballstriking through the bag.  Not really sure why, but I believe a closed stance facilitates EE - if I close up, it's not difficult to straighten my back, be on my toes, and stay balanced.  Moving the left foot back with the butt moving forward results in a totally unbalanced (falling forward) position which can't be maintained, so the body doesn't do it (EE). Yes, my backswing is shorter, but I'm making better strikes and haven't lost distance.   Does this make any sense?
