My Swing (boogielicious)

Back to swinging again. I actually played yesterday for the first time in 6 weeks or so. Swung at 70% without pain. Played pretty well too.

I filmed my swing today to see if there were any changes and surprisingly, it looks about the same. Below are driver and 6 iron at about 80%.

Set up and swing looks good man.  Driver looked solid.  To me, iron looked like you weren't committed in that you looked like you didn't hit down and through it.  Looked like you backed out of it on the downswing.  The ball took off well right of zero (I know you probably play a draw though).  I would like to see more commitment to hitting down on the ball, getting the head to continue down even after contact.  Like the head is going down the hula hoop to the ball and continues down before coming up and left.  Right now, it looks like you're trying to be shallow too much and you have the sling ball going.  Hit down on the ball and mash it.

Yeah irons were causing pain at impact, so I think I am still a little sheepish on mats. I need to find a grass range to work on things.

You look good though man.  That's no 12 swing.  🙂

I like the way you drop your hands at transition into a slightly flatter plane.  Very pro-like.  Sergio would be proud of you.

Maybe in later October. I’m still in RI waiting for contractors to finish their work and RI is still on the COVID quarantine list for MA. Where were you thinking of playing? Springfield is about 1 1/2 hours from where I live in MA.

Oh, I'd defer to you as to courses as you're probably more familiar with them than I am.

I did play a course about 30 minutes northeast of Springfield at Cold Springs Country Club which was really nice but it's real hilly so it was quite a walk. :-$

Working on a new piece to be more dynamic and pick up some swing speed. I started Super Speed training again, but my Evolvr instructor added a new feel and dynamic. He wants me to channel Henrik Stenson and some LD swingers and shift my weight back a bit from 1 to 2. From 2 to 4, I am to get taller and get more weight on my right side and unweight my left foot letting it come up off the turf. Nicklaus did this part. Then from 3.5 to 5 let the weight fall back on my left side. From 5 to 7, push up on the left side. The swing is longer and more dynamic. Below is a driver with this feel. It is only been a couple of sessions, but it doesn’t feel awkward. I does feel a bit faster. I measured swing speed with a radar at the end of this session and hit 101 twice, 97 twice and mid 90s. This is faster that I have been getting before.

This will take some more practice for sure and I will need to take it to the course as well.

P.S. That is not my backhoe/excavator. It belongs to the landscaper who didn’t show up yesterday or today. The keys are in it. Anyone need a backhoe? 😜

I’ve been driving the ball a lot better the last two rounds. I’ve had drives range from 220 to even 260. Yesterday I had an uphill drive of ~250. I’ve worked on ball position having the ball at my front big toe. This has been taking off spin and launching higher. I lower the loft on my driver as well. Below is a practice from two days ago.

Long irons haven’t been as good though. I am missing left with too much draw. I will work on ball position there as well. Short irons have been DOBA, especially with 3/4 swings. Yesterday my 3/4 9 iron and PW were spot on target. I feel like I am not hitting down enough on the long irons and coming in shallow, but this swing is better.

    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]
