A little too much head movement on the down swing.  Otherwise this looked all right to me.
This was taken during my lesson on the 24th.  We are working on getting my weight more forward at impact.  I think it worked well here.

im not a fan of when the left leg bends like that 😛 if ur going to bend it i should go foward not to the right 🙂

I got a putter last year as a back up because the my older one was, well, old and rusting too much.  Then this year I got the new Cleveland Elevado and played with that this year, but unfortunately the insert behind the face, I think, made my feel on distance off.  I left everything short, no matter what. Or when I tried to compensate, I blasted it by.  So I switched to the back up which is an O-works Odyssey.  It has the same look and feel as my old putter but the set up is slightly different.

Yesterday I played 9 holes at my course from the tips.  I kept up with the same tee to green play I've been having the last several weeks, but with the putter switch, I MADE PUTTS! Gosh it felt good. Seriously, its been a problem for far too long.  I hope it's not a one off, and I don't think it will be.  I finished with 4 birdies and 1 bogey, probably the best 9 holes I've had this year.  Took me long enough to have a decent set of holes this year.  I have a couple of events left this year, so hopefully I can build this momentum more and keep it going.

Nice! That sounded like a fun 9 holes. I made a putter swap this year and it made a world of difference for me. Almost makes me think I should go get a putter fitting...

I hit some range balls this afternoon and man I hit the ball great. Based on the pure shot count thread, I hit 70% pure of like 50 balls. The others were really close too. Really liking the swing right now.

Ok, played a round today. Absolutely on fire... I would honestly say that 50% of my full swing shots today were pure. I also continued my streak of making putts.  I ended with 7 birdies, 1 eagle and 1 bogey to tie my all time low round of 64.  Although this one really felt like my best round ever. My bogey was from a slip, got careless for a minute and lost a ball into a penalty area.  Approach shots were definitely the highlight, leaving shorter putts for birdies.  Such a fun day.  I need to do this in a tournament round though, to really make it mean something more.

Played a round yesterday at the local CC.  Hit ball reasonably off the tee. Having started to use the Super Speed sticks, I've remembered how to create power again.  So, driver was definitely coming off hotter and going a little further. The course itself is rather short, so I had a lot of partial wedges into greens and that shot is sort of in limbo right now.  I'm trying to use more bounce and less leading edge, so the ball is coming out higher and softer but shorter.  I haven't quite adjusted on distance control yet, so I wasn't hitting those approach shots as close as I wanted to.  A few missed greens in there too which was frustrating.  Putting was decent.  Overall, game seemed mediocre, ended up at -1, 70.  Three birdies, two bogeys.

Regarding the super speed sticks, I had been so focused recently on my hip turn through impact that I was "holding off" with the hands around impact.  So, all I did was still focus on the turn but then feel the hands throwing the clubhead just a little bit.  Seemed to work reasonably.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
