My Swing (boogielicious)

Today I first worked on my long arms drill from my lesson. Then I did the day 6 PlaneMate protocol. It was challenging and I will repeat it until I get it right. The clamp kept shifting too, which was annoying. I sanded down the nubs as instructed, but it will have to work on that again. 
 

Below is the long arms drill. I finished a bit high in these. I should stop at A9.

You could also put another piece of rubber in there.

I tried electrical tape like they suggested. I may try rubber or something else with better grip.

I like the tape on the hat and right elbow.

Stephan has me do the tape on the hat to help align my head behind the ball. I was too forward. I look at the iPad and it reminds me to shift back and rotate my head a bit. The elbow is part of an old sock. It helps me to see positions when I’m dressed like Johnny Cash. 😜

@boogielicious, can describe 'long arms drill'? What feel? Thanks.

The feel is a couple of things for me. The backswing should feel wide. Then the transition I feel my wrists relax slightly and my right elbow moving down and around my torso. This makes the downswing narrower than the back swing, which is lag. My left arm moves more out too, which helps the elbow not get stuck. You can see it in my rehearsal swing.

Then past impact, I extend my arms and keep rotating without trying to turn the forearms over.

This is the example I was given. I have trouble stopping as flat as Mac, so I concentrate more on continuing the turn with my hips and shoulders.

I uploaded this to Evolvr as a checkpoint. I’ve been working on my drills a lot and doing PlaneMate, which is very similar.

A couple of videos from yesterday. First is my driver work and second is the PlaneMate Driver protocol.

In my latest lesson, my new instructor Kris talked about what he really liked and what I need to work on. My takeaway looks fine up to A4. From A4 to A6, I need to bow my wrist and allow the club to flatten a bit more. This will result in a slight bit more shaft lean at A7.

So below are my first attempts with 7 iron and driver.

That is pretty much exactly what I am working on right now. Nice work

Worked on the palmar flexion again with 7 iron and driver. Not quite as good as the last session. My instructor wants me to feel like the club head is falling behind me on the downswing. I had the feel, but it wasn’t quite as pronounced as two days ago.

Worked on my PP again with 7 iron and driver. Shaft at A5 looks better with the 7 iron, but could be better with the driver. The transition feels smoother too.

I’ve been working on the same things for a few weeks now. Today’s work was similar,  but I added more of a swing outward from the top feel with the palmar flexion. Still a bit steep with the driver.

I am also working on chips, pitches and partial shots, but only film them from time to time.

I didn't think it looked that steep.  More or less travelled back down the same plane, but I guess maybe you're wanting to come under more. 

I was more concerned about your hands "running away" from your body too much on the downswing.  You had that line on your net running down the middle of your hands at address, and then at impact, your hands moved toward the ball a fair bit.  That's my tendency as well.  I had to fight it by feeling the grip end come "in" more on the downswing--because I had a tendency of throwing my hands out--while the club head comes 1) down on top of the ball and 2) from the inside of the ball line.

How in the hell can that swing be a 12.7???  No can putt?

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
