Hips are closed but upper body is rotated. It hurts looking at this.

It's what we call a Stork Drill. You basically set up with most of your weight on the lead leg, rear foot is back a few inches, the only part of your right foot that is in contact with the ground is the inside part of your right right toe. This is not a drill you do with slow swings, you load the arms up the chest and then fire them down.

This tends to be a drill for better players that

- Get a little "spinny" from A4-5,

- Need to release their 4th accumulator (lead arm) down faster (they already do Key #2 well)

- Have their head transfer too far forward on the downswing.

Even though it can be a tough drill I should probably film it.

So this is a good drill for me because Erik said I needed to get my arms down quicker in my downswing?

Ah, but my evolvr work is to keep my hips in place on my swing and this wouldn't let me slide my hips either :-)

Fair enough.. I was just saying that is all.. I just wouldn't want you to rush things.. Why worry about a drill for arms coming down faster if you are working on Key#1 specifically the pivot in the backswing? Maybe @mvmac can chime in?

You could certainly fool around with it, for you I wouldn't hit balls with it just yet. It's not really a pivot drill but if you slide the hips back with this drill you won't be able to stay balanced. I added a clarification to my earlier post, this tends to be more of a "better player" drill. If you don't have a good handle on Key #2, this drill won't really be that beneficial for the "arms down" piece.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
