It's been 6 ish weeks since I broke my ankle in a climbing fall. So eager to start rehabing but non weight bearing for 2 more weeks.  Since I can't make full swings probably till July, have been

Trying.. 🥴

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

    • Day 543 - June 23, 2021 Two things today: Played 9 holes: https://www.gamegolf.com/player/iacas/round/3065509. Worked downtown on my swing: https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/43987-my-swing-iacas/?do=findComment&comment=1542138.
    • So two things are my focus for the next three weeks: Keeping left wrist extension (not flexion) during the backswing. Left wrist cupped. I go arched during late backswing and that f***s up the right wrist and the right elbow. Causes a steepening move, and shuts the face, but I still tend to swing out slightly. So I get straight over-draws or if I don't force it inside, some big pulls. Left arm not anywhere near as deep. This starts early — from A1.5. Three swings here from VERY early in today's practice: Swing 1 — bad wrist. Swing 2 — almost the same. Swing 3 — Long, but maintained the left wrist cupping longer. Too deep, though.
    • I added number 9 tonight at golf league. Tugged the drive way way WAY to the left. It was actually left of the 10th teebox. Hit a hooking stinger hybrid under the trees that skidded and rolled all the way off the back of the green. Then I chipped in for birdie with my 60 degree.  A very non-standard birdie, but a birdie none-the-less. I will say the hooked stinger hybrid was a thing of beauty.  I felt a smidgen of redemption. Last time I played number 9, I hit a beautiful drive leaving a sand-wedge approach which I stuck to about 6 feet. Then missed the putt. It actually rolled way past and I three-putted for bogie. So, getting the birdie on the short chip shot felt even better. 
    • Day 2: More backswing practice with LVP camera while I continue to research an easy up/down net for practicing on my patio without compromising the new outdoor space.
    • Looking for a Spalding Tour Edition Bird on Ball sand wedge...hopefully in good condition vintage 1990s I think...  Thanks
