My Swing (GolfLug)

You can re-myelinate while swinging slowly or "mapping."

Just gotta make yourself do it. July is a good deadline. Let's get it done!

Need to find a consistent feel to sustain this picture. As of now it is 'keep right arm straight' as long as possible. 

In this thread. Page 3 It is also similar to the soft trail arm challenge feel.  

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

Got in 6 rounds in 5 days at MB Barefoot. Really enjoyed the complex. Grades: 

Driver: D- (Except for day 1 at huge fairways of Farmstead- only non Barefoot course we played) it was terrible. Had a 100 swing thoughts and couldn't stick with one.

Irons: A . Struck them well and got better with best on the last day. Had only two bad misses all day. Came through with some clutch shots. On the last day at the Dye course (tightest of the all the Barefoot courses) I chucked the driver all together and drove all the short holes with my 4-iron and did well.

Pithing B- Not terrible.. but had trouble with clean hits on rain soaked sloppy surfaces. Workable though. 

Chipping B- Nothing to write home about but also not terrible.. had a couple of complete duffs but got on the green for two putts most times.

Putting C- Welp, my love affair with poor greens pace continued. They received a massive amount of rain on Sunday and I could never get myself to hit the ball hard enough. 

All in all game is in a better place than a month ago. Shot in the 80s all 5 days which I haven't done in a well over year.

W-I-D…

😊.. Need to find solid feel that I can sustain. Drove great day 1 and then it disappeared. 

But yeah, back to working on it.

Trying to not let right arm/wrist get bendy-hingy. Feels like a half swing and flat like a m..

Thank @iacas. Yes I will get the tilt back into it. Have been setting only driver square (irons still hooded, albeit less) so the palmy grip (yes, true) is a mental crutch till I get a bit more confidence. Keeping the left arm super soft and lightly resting on the grip to not stress the forearm injury (works fine I think).

Bit more tilt. Suitcase hold for more hand depth. Soft arms, elbows, chest, lats, full turn and go.

I messaged you a picture.

Stop worrying about depth. Get the right elbow off your ribs and (not rigid) but "straight" feeling.

Trying to ensure club is 'radiating' away from core, wrists not loading, and straight right arm feel. Everything still soft.

I know the trail hand grip is a bit palmy but not worrying about it much. I think allows me to chicken wing at impact to keep by lead forearm from being stressed. Again, hopefully not a big deal.

    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing. 
    • It’s been a month or two since I last played, but I took Classic out for a spin, and it worked just fine. The data was able to transfer from my device using my computer as well. 
    • Do you guys watch or like any YouTube instructions channel? I’m as a newbie follow a few that think help me learned. It might not better than lesson but for now it will do. I plan to take specific lesson though like griping and swing path. I watch a lot from Danny Maude and Mike Breed.
