It was warm here, too, but way too windy for my net so I didn’t practice.

 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.

Repeated the Day 5 protocol indoors without a ball. Reviewing the video, I think that is what they wanted me to do. Did them slower too and they felt better.

    • If I was hitting driver well prior to this hole I’d go for the green because it’s fun. I’d aim at the left center of the green. When I’m in sync with driver, my driver misses are almost exclusively left of target. I typically get around 270 carry on good swings. Doubt I’d carry all the way to the green in a headwind, but I’d probably be short in the large bunker, short in the rough in front of the green, or left in the fairway. If I wasn’t feeling good with driver, I’d probably hit a 4-iron, 3h, or 5W to the left of the large bunker and try to leave a 50-75 yard shot into the green.
    • It essentially depends on two things.  The danger around the green when going for it and the ability for a driver to hold the green.  If the bunker and rough is penalising, then laying up makes sense.  If it would be pretty easy to play out of, go for it.  The other factor is holding a green when you hit a driver.  If that is difficult to do and either needs you to land short and run on, or will lead to you running over the green, then that needs to be weighed.  Essentially, your second shot should be easier than a 50 to yard shot in.
    • For $399, you can get a full set of Callaway Strata which includes D, 3W, 4H, 5H, 6-PW, SW, Putter, Bag, 4 headcovers.  Costco: for $499 Callaway Edge set: D, 3W, 5H, 6-PW, SW, Odyssey Putter, 3 head covers, no bag. They're a little more than you want to spend, but... Are you going to get the bug? Finding a set of irons used right now is going to be tough because of the coronavirus stuff. People aren't buying because in many states golf shops are still considered non-essential businesses.  
    • This..... The Cleveland HB's are so easy to hit. BUT If your father is a lousy ball strike......r no club will help...you just can't buy a game...otherwise every golfer would be a low cap.....maybe your father can be better served with lessons. How old is your father?
    • I'm well...thanks. Was doing some Googles....I didn't know you're at 6500-7000 feet elevation...or is that only at Paako?....you must be crushing the ball at that elevation on firm courses. Is Paako the same #1 NM course I read about in the mid 1990's when Golf Digest had a great book rating many of the states and countries best courses....I think Paako had a 5 star rating for value & the course itself...if I recall...the green fee back then was $20-$30????....or am I thinking about another highly ranked NM course?....I know Paako is an expensive course nowadays.....is it cart mandatory or are the 27 holes walkable? Two 78's is incredible on a tough course like Paako....no wonder the gals and guys don't want to play with you...you're a "BALLER" and would shame them.....lol. Is NM always windy?...I hate playing in the wind...it generally not overly windy here. Have you tried the M4...I think that's a really good stick...you could likely find one around $150-$175 if used club inventory is high in NM.
