I have nothing to add about your swing, but what is going on with that fan?

It’s a feature. @GolfLug did that to make room so he could swing.

@mchepp, @DaveP043. Y'all are a trip..lol. The blades slant down. Something about this design being able to funnel more air.

Leave it to @GolfLug to have the most fancy fan I have ever seen. But what I really wanted to ask is how is the piano going?

Wife's idea about the fan. I wouldn't dare to come up anything like that on my own.

Piano? I don't know, I just use it as a back stop. My kids use it to make some interesting sounds. They claim it to be 'music'.

That's right.. Since I have soooooo much width in my swing. Not sure why @iacaskeeps hammering me about not having enough width. 😜

The only hammering needed here is to smash up that fan and get a normal one. 🙂

Very good. Now do that a million times, and record yourself often and make them at least as good as those.

This is the right advice pretty much at all times in golf 🤣

Notice how quickly that right elbow bends?

(That’s still way better but you can be wider.)

Ok, the left arm feels full stretch at A3 (ish) already. Struggling to stretch it to give right hand further room to not fold. 

I can raise the hands higher but then would look like Count Drac and head starts tilting left (forward) and at that point I can barely see the ball.

I know you don't do Android but wife has i-phone if you have time for a facetime lesson this weekend.

@boogielicious, where is the video of the drill wherein you keep the right elbow straight by keeping tension on a piece of rope? I can’t find it?

The right elbow can be farther off your ribs, no? 🙂

Per convo, will add bit more tilt down and torso turn and get left arm to rise up higher.

Well, what I am trying to say that the left arm is acting as the rope I am stretching to max. 

Anyway, I will post something better tonight.

You're the one who added that. The later videos seemed fine here.

Right, but you can stretch it "around" you more, or "in front of you" more. The right elbow can both bend and/or elevate.

Yeah. Basically.

Your left arm can be straight but if you bend your right elbow and pull it "behind" you, you're very, VERY narrow. Conversely you could lift your arms straight up in front of you and be VERY wide.

In this thread. Page 3


It is also similar to the soft trail arm challenge feel.

    • It honestly depends on how much time you have. The past two summers I had a part-time job working three to four days a week, and I would often get out to the course just as many times, even if it’s just to practice for half an hour. I’m in college now (first PGM blog post tomorrow!), and having a maximum of three classes a day this semester I’ve been able to get out to the course every day since I’ve been here except for one. I would say if you’re trying to get better, definitely try to get out there more than once a week unless that’s all you can do.
    • I play 3 - 5 rounds a week. My wife encourages me to get out and go golfing. She says she thinks the exercise and socializing is good for me - but I think she just wants time alone with the football team. Poor sods...  😄
    • Are we talking tape or whiskey? 😀Congratulations!
    • IMO - This is the correct answer.  You want to find something more comical try to figure out what is cast and what is forged. Sometimes the whole club head is forged. Sometimes the whole head is cast. Sometimes the face is forged and welded to a cast head. They still stamp "forged" on it. Sometimes the body is forged, then a cast face is welded on it. Again, they still stamp "forged" on the clubhead.
