My Swing (boogielicious)

Played today and had trouble with the driver again, four hooks and two pushes. So I filmed my swing to submit to my Evolvr instructor. The two DTL views are a high push and lower hook, or at least they felt that way. I put ribbon on the net to show launch angle, because I’m a nerd I guess.😜. They are roughly 15, 20, 25 and 30 degrees from the center of the mat.

What is this “roughly” nonsense? If they’re not accurate measurements I’m going to have to ask you to turn in your nerd card.

The measurements are accurate, but the net sags a bit, so they’re +/- a half degree or so. 😜

Sounds like you didn’t factor in that variable when you “measured” it 😜

The ranges are still not open, so I created a modified gate drill to help with starting the ball out to the right. I set up aiming at an intermediate target at the edge of my mat that aligned with the yellow strapping. This starts the ball about 5 degrees right of dead straight of where my toe line would have it. I think this will help me on the course. Hitting the strapping means the ball started on the correct line. The thin yellow cord is dead center for the iron shot.

I sent in a driver video to Evolvr. My instructor recommended staying the course and opening the face and playing a push which should draw slightly, which I have been practicing. Also, he wants me to focus on the steep at A3 to shallow at A5, A6 feel. I think maybe on the course I have been overdoing the palmar flexion at the top. Below, I’m feeing the flexion only in my left index finger then swinging out a bit and driving the swing with my right elbow. 

The ball launches higher with this alignment. I’ll have to do some MEVO work to adjust. I can lower the loft on the driver or playing with position.

I did the same for the 6 iron.

It’s getting closer. I will stay this course and work on that feel on the course.

Shot a 41 with no hooks! Had three up and downs and only 13 putts with 5 one putts.

Finally, you see the light. Just going to leave this here as a reminder for you:

Worked on driver and 6 irons drills today. Same punch drill work then full swing. Below are driver and 6 irons. Still have clubface control issues and will be working on that for a bit.

Worked with a little different feel today to help swing out more. From A4, I wanted to feel like I was driving the hands and butt of the club down toward the ball to about A5.5 and have the right elbow drive the arms. I also played the 3 wood just off my left heel to get more launch angle.

Worked on less palmar flexion the last three days. Ball flight calms down and I had less hooks. Need a bit more work on this

6 iron and driver working on the same feel, steep at A3 to shallow at A5. The sensation is the club head dropping down from the top.

Went to the range today and worked on setup and alignment. After feedback from @billchao and @jamo, I’ve adjusted my pre-shot routine to aim the club face slightly right of target, then set my feet open to the face so my foot line aims left of target. I kept my shoulders slightly closed to my feet as well along. I know the path will be in to out this way, but it seems to correct the alignment issue.
 

I practiced the set up and put the club along my toe line then stepped back to see where it was aiming. I also paid close attention to where the ball was relative to my left heel because opening the stance puts the ball back.

Ball flight then became higher and was a push draw or push and no real hooks, which is my miss. I think I will practice this for a few more range sessions to get it to sink in. I’ll go to different ranges if possible to get different looks. Today was at a covered range with mats because it was raining. I’m a little OCD about lines and symmetry and sometimes the straight lines of the mats or ropes at ranges can mess with me. I have to focus to eliminate them in my head.

Parallax messes me up a lot, too, as we talked about. I keep aiming my feet at my target instead of parallel left of my target. You hit a lot of "pushes" that were basically straight shots, but you kept aiming right of what you thought you were aiming at.

You guys are weird. I see no lines at all. The only thing I do is aim the face, then set up to the club. I often pick different targets on the range and will stand at different angles to however the mat is lined up.

Lots of people seem to have this issue, though, so maybe I'm the weird one :whistle:

I can easily out-OCD you on this times 3. Hell, sometimes it takes me 30-35 secs just get my visual cues sorted before I can pull the trigger. I am sure you know this but I think its a peripheral vision thing. I find a point from the corner of my left eye towards the target, may be the target itself to establish a larger 'anchor' to supercede close range mis-alignment. I have hit shots 40 degs to right when I loose my distant visual 'anchor'. I try to maintain it throughout the swing. I said 'try' a few times here.. lol.

When I hit off mats I always have to square them up to the concrete base right in front of them.  If there's a deviation in that angle I'm all screwed up.  But then there's my friend who moves tee blocks on the course to suit his eye.

Squaring up a block is one thing but moving? Bit grey. Lol.

Sorry @boogielicious don't mean to hijack your thread..😊

There was one tee this Sunday that I almost moved. It was pointing 30 or more degrees away from the fairway. We were staring at it like WTF!

No worries. At least I’m not alone!

    • No, the police knew George and probably did this premeditated. This case is unique in that regard. There are videos of police using that choke hold / maneuver on white people as well, with deadly consequences. By all regards, the policeman who used this choke hold did so with violation of written regulation on when it should be used. If they were even properly trained on when to use it. I feel like cops are given a patchwork of techniques that they hardly practice when to and how to use it.  Two of the cops were brand new to the force and were with a person who has been a policeman for over 10 years. Sorry to say, it probably would be career suicide to stand up to a cop with that many more years of service. It's not the right thing to do, but it's a very human thing that happens.   Especially when you hear stories about how police department culture can be. They would be branded snitches. Their lives would be hell for their career. Don't get me wrong, I wish they had the courage to stand up to policeman using the choke hold on George. I can understand their position and they're apprehension to not stepping in. Now, the third cop, who stood by and actually try to stop people from filming, should be hit with higher chargers than the two new police officers.  It should be training. It should be training that new police should know they can stand up and report on incidents like these.  I get you want people to magically have this thought, "Just treat them like family." But, that is a pipe dream that will never come true. Humans will forever treat people they don't know not as family. Still, you can treat someone with dignity and respect and still care for you family more.   
    • There is a teen near our area after contracting Coronavirus has now been diagnosed with another complication, Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome.   Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children causes swelling and pain in various organs and muscles. Many who get it had been infected by or were previously exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.   
    • No problem. You are very welcome.  One last thing, when you remove the grip and take the weight out, before you re-grip the putter stand the putter up on the ground  as if you were setting up to putt. The putter stands up by itself like some of those other putter brands made to do that. Of course once you re-grip it won't but I discovered that by accident and thought it was cool. The majority of weight is really low in that putter. Good luck. 
    • Additionally, the folks that complained about lock-downs and shutting everything down also complain about the masks.  I think the masks are a good, reasonable middle ground position to try to keep businesses open and restore some version of normalcy.  If anything, folks should be happy to wear a mask as a reasonable burden and otherwise enjoy going about your day; it beats staying at home and not making a living or doing other things.
    • George Floyd wasn’t shot. Eric Garner wasn’t shot. So the same police that didn’t react with force when armed white people protested outside their capital lost that training when it came to George? Or were those cops off that day when he got murdered? How about the other 3 officers that did absolutely nothing to stop their co defendant? None had training. If the police treated everybody like they would want their child or spouse to be treated all of this would go away. That has zero to do with training.
