My Swing (GolfLug)

Round and outside practice rained out. Will do video next time. Few notes:

1. Arms unified, in front of chest and hang low. Especially left arm should hug the chest softly (actually a good feel to maintain throughout the swing).

2. Let chest 'drop' to the ground with NO pressure on shaft or club. This will be ultra important and ensuring club mass will get completely behind with FULL shoulder rotation at A4 and STAY behind at transition.

3. Keep shoulder plane steep. Take away should begin with left shoulder pushing 'beneath' right shoulder. This will get shaft vertical at A3.

4. Also no funny business with hands or lifting till A3

5. Did I say keep chest 'dropped' down! You lift, you dead.

4. Feel FULL left rib and left arm stretch at A4. Hands pushed away up and back.

5. Keep arms to body and turn through. If done right, club will want to rollover post impact.

Extra credit for a 'patient' turn through..😊

Feels that worked well on course. 

1. Left hand/arm goes along for a ride in the BS. 

2. Vertical (-ish) turn/flow of shoulders, arms and club. Horizontal element leads to pushes and pulls. Especially driver.

Poor putting and botched long irons has till the scoring still in the doldrums, but had a good driver outing yesterday. 8/14 FIRs. 

Focus on width and turn (left rib stretch) at A4, soft 'stretchy' left hand/arm. Feel is more of 'carry' the club to A4 then Doing well on being 'patient' through DS and impact. Less jumpy. 

Can I here someone to putt for me? lol. Had being doing great with distance control but had hard time adjusting to speed yesterday and missed bunch of 3-4 foot comebackers. Whatever... not too concerned/focused on the putting at the moment.

Check your acceleration profile. It might not be just "can't adjust to the speed."

Yes, felt like I was guiding the ball. Need to get back to popping it a tad. Will get butchered on RNK greens with this stroke.

Sure. But putting is easy to fix.

I want to see some W-I-D-T-H in like ten days.

No warm up.. 

No width?

C’mon Vishal. You can do this. No reason to have that right elbow bending that much.

No reason for the club to go back anywhere near that far.

Will keep at it. Obviously what I'm feeling ain't real.

Managed to get one of two drills recorded before skies opened up. Letting my back completely open up to target to get a good turn and pushing out club away from me to get width.

Pushing club away can be better for sure.

I noticed last night during my width drill that if I feel turning 'into' my trail ankle from A1 to A2 allowing my lead knee to break a bit, A4 feels stretched out but  also stable/stacked. From here I feel like I can just go.

Also, making sure left arm and hand stays 'dropped', soft and unloaded as much as possible.

A quick check after work today. Trying to feel a full torso turn while keeping incline. 

No flip flops?! That’s bold to swing with a driver inside! You are definitely more man than I am :-)

I wish my hips opened up at impact like yours. Keep up the good work

    • But most trades do not require a college degree. That goes back to the bifurcation between college prep and trade skill training.
    • Depending on course length...driver, 5, 7, pw and putter. I am just more comfortable hitting these clubs in a variety of ball flights and distances.
    • This x1000. To appear (I know that it is just an appearance) completely hopped up and out of it a couple of days before the incident is a huge reason why the questions are there, and IMO rightfully so. There is history there. He's recovering from surgery, so the access is almost certainly there. And we have video of what could be seen as him high as a kite shortly before, though not so shortly that any intoxication from the TV appearance would have worn off had it existed. Until I personally see toxicological reports dated and sign from that date, I will believe he was intoxicated. Some (most here) may call this unreasonable, but I would argue it is unreasonable for him to be going that speed and crash, then have no citation from the cops, even more unreasonable. I voted 1 as far as Tiger saying anything himself is concerned, but I think it is a terrible look, and close to a silent admission at this point given his history, the previous TV appearance, and the circumstances of the crash.
    • Nice rant.  Aren't those the same people who when they are on their deathbed from Covid are saying they wish they had gotten vaccinated?  Or that they would now be happy to take the science-designed monoclonal antibodies?
    • I haven’t posted much these days, just been busy with life, unfortunately I spend more time driving my kid around to soccer games these days than golfing but I like the idea of this thread. My incomplete list is full of old timers.    @iacas for honest, insightful, and intelligent posts about golf. Always. The energy to make sure we all understand what’s important is uncanny.    @Golfingdad for moral support and always a fresh attitude. Barney lives life right.    @kpaulhus for the positive gamblers mentality. And Newport Cup drives that could range from 300 yard bombs to 65 yard duck hooks. Like a box of chocolates.    @DaveP043 the best match play opponent anyone could dream of.   @mvmac for discovering the secret to golf. Forget Ben Hogan he needs his own Life magazine article to explain it to us.    @JetFan1983 for the Amanda videos.    so many others I should mention but the truth is there are so many great people on here. Always been the best place to talk golf on the internet.
