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?

    • 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?
