Fought a hook last year and it got me in a lot of trouble.

The COVID day 5 drill is very similar to what my Evolvr instructor has had me doing. I’m working on the driver this lesson and Kris asked me to work on punch shots holding the finish at A9. Below I start with the COVID Day 5, then go to punch driver shots. This helps me continue the shoulder rotation after impact.
 

As an old player, I’m not as flexible as I once was, so I have to keep working on this in addition to fitness work and stretching.

Driver drills today as part of my work. The punch drills look pretty good, but the full swing I still stall my shoulder rotation. This may take a few weeks to improve on.

I like the left leg in the latest video.  Also the darker shorts look better on you with that shirt.

I started hitting a punch/stinger driver a year or so ago.  It’s money. For me I have to remember to keep rotating my lower body through, don’t let my hips stall.  You get a bit of that “falling backwards” look that I love because it shows you cleared you hips fast.

Ahh, fashionistas making their presence felt on TST...

How's my coffee cup look?  Do I look fat sipping from it?

Did a bit of center face contact drill. The LSW videos discussed that as one of the keys for better driving. I started being on the toe side a bit before adjusting a bit closer to the ball. I will keep working on this.

6 iron was better toe to heel, but a couple of thins shots showed up to.

Seeing some incremental improvement wit my priority piece. Doing the drills is helping, but I still have a ways to go. I am working on continuing the shoulder and hip turn through to A9.

Worked on several things today, the COVID drills, my Priority Piece with driver and 6 irons, partial wedges and chipping/pitching. Below are three swings, one 6 iron and two driver. Progress is being made, but still has a way to go. 
 

My set up stinks for partial wedges. They hit too high on the net then careen off the garage door or top. I tried putting a pad behind it today, but it didn’t help.

Have you tried placing the mat closer to the net?

That works, but then the MEVO doesn’t have enough space before the net. It needs 8 feet and I am at 7. Readings get sketchy.

Pull the net more taut? Then again that might send the balls flying back at you.

Can you throw a blanket or something over the top?

Sounds like you're launching your wedges too high then.  My partial wedges don't launch higher than around 34* at the most on standard partial shots.  I like to throw them in there flat and spinny.

These are pretty much what I have been working on for a few months. I added the Day 5 COVID drill, which is a short punch shot from A5. Then I extend it to an abbreviated shot stopping at A9. The idea is to get my shoulders to continue the turn. I do these every practice. The shoulder turn is better.

Working on partial wedges. Sent this video into Evolvr. The partial wedges seem to launch too high and push a bit. This 54 was launching around 28 to 34 degrees per MEVO. It is a bit of a push too as my target line is the center yellow chord.

After looking at yesterday’s video, I decide to do the punch drill with the SW today. I think the video yesterday looked a little flippy. This felt better.
