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? 😜

    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup. 
    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
