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'm going to be perfectly honest with you here, I don't believe your decision to driver on this hole follows The Rule.
    • This is one of mine from a pre-shelter in place round, #9 at my home course,320 yard, dogleg left par-4, maybe 60-80 feet uphill. Most people hit a mid/long iron to lay up in the wide part of the fairway, which leaves around 120-140 yard uphill shot, with basically a flat lie. The further left you land in the fairway, the shorter the second shot. From any position in the wide section of the fairway, you can't see the green at all, and you're lucky to see the tip of the flag if it is in a front position. I used to play this hole conservatively, and hit 5/6/7-iron to the wide fairway, and then PW/9/8-iron up the hill to the green. Recently I started hitting driver because a well struck drive for me will leave about 30 yards from light rough, usually in a spot where you can at least see where the flag is. I align toward at the green "X" (fork in the cart path), playing my typical draw. If it doesn't draw, the ball will still land on an upslope and might not roll into the rough/trees. If it draws, it will carry the cart path and get a bit of roll up the hill. If it hooks, it might still be okay as long as it doesn't hook too much. The photo below shows how I intend to play the hole. The round in question, I pulled my drive badly into the trees to the left of the tee box, and after pinballing aroudn in the trees, I had this lie. The shot needed here was a punch out between the two redwood trees on the right. I suck at these shots, and anytime I'm in the redwood areas, I'm extra anxious due to the shallow roots, so I think that I unconsciously stand up out of my swing and top the ball in these areas. A topped shot from this spot sends the ball into a muddy, thick rough area, with no chance at all of reaching the green. I managed to pull off a great punch out, and made it on the green with my third leaving a 14-foot putt for par (didn't make par).
    • Just to play devil's advocate, Orr played in a lower scoring era than Gretzky and Lemieux. In the C&B article I linked before, Orr's adjusted PPG is 1.33 which is only a slight drop to his actual number, but Lemieux (1.66) and Gretzky (1.61) both lose more. Orr isn't really in this discussion, though. It's true that he changed the position as people saw it, but I don't believe "most influential" is a factor in being GOAT or we'd be talking about Patrick Roy. Or Jacques Plante. Or Stan Mikita. Gretzky was on the TV broadcast when the Oilers were playing the Devils earlier in the season and said pretty much this. When comparing the game today to when he (and Ken Daneko) were playing, he said, "It's a little different in the sense that the players are bigger, they're faster, the equipment is better... I think all in all, the players of today's age, the skill level's just at a different level."
    • An 81 today from the back tees. I was whining all day about the terrible play, but then I realized that would have killed to have an 81 from any tee a few years ago. All is good.
