So same feels - open hips and chest to camera to get as wide as I can but seems like this raising up at A4 shit is stubborn. Turn through and exit are okayish so meh.. 

BTW, this Cally Apex 18 deg is a lot of fun to train with. Doesn't tolerate half ass swings. Lol.

I’m wondering if wearing the flip flops is affecting what you’re doing. For me, loose footwear keeps me from trusting my slide forwards with my hips because I feel like I’m falling out of the sandal.

I can't say for sure but I don't feel like I am slipping or restricting motion. Psychologically it's not much of a factor for sure. It could be because in my elementary school days I played cricket and even soccer in flip flops. My mom would have my hide if I soiled the one pair of white canvas keds I had. Them puppies were meant for school only. 

Most days I have a few moments to get my hands on the club only after the day is done and not putting shoes on for a few swings. But hey, I have shoes on in the previous vid I posted.. 😊

Some Saturday morning work. Same feels.. open chest and hips to camera for free extension of hands for width. 20 percent and 40 percent speeds..

Also some rotational stretch work to limber up torso a bit more.

That's much better. Stop "raising up" and it'll be even better.

I realized I was pulling the arms 'out of the shoulder sockets' for fake width/turn at the top. Feel is to stay in incline, not overbend/under end and really 'keep the shoulder sockets relaxed' get the body/shoulders in plane to get useful width. 

I can feel that I can turn through impact without jumping on the ball or throw hands/club @the ball or whatever desperate attempt I make when out of position before impact. 

Any feedback would be helpful.

  1. Move the guitar. As a guitarist, I cringe at the thought of a shank!😜
  2. Slow it down. I’m guilty of doing these too fast too. Try a 6 count on the backswing part, 3 count to A6, 3 to impact.
  3. not sure if you have an iPad, but MirrorVision really helps with this stuff. You can see all your check points. A small mirror can help too on the FO view.
  4. I think you are a bit OTT at A6 with this exaggeration. Feel the hips slide more forward while you turn and do it slower. When I do it in slow motion, I sometimes don’t slide as much as I do in the real swing. Stop at A6 and check the head position.
  5. There is a COVID drill on these, Day 5 and Day 30.
  6. Lastly, did I mention to move the guitar?😜

Appreciate the feedback. I will steal my son's iPad if he will let me..😊. Have struggled with PP of width for a year now since trip to CHQ last year so that's still the focus. 

Been alternating between guitar and club this morning so mindlessly left it there. I know better but certainly need a bit more awareness.

Left: Butt too far back, weight in the heels.

Right: Still more narrow/around with that right elbow than you want.

I don't see much value in doing much downswing work since you know you're going to stop the downswing barely past impact.

 Been driving fairly well last couple of months. This was a cold swing capture to see if I have developed a wider sweep yet. Honestly I can't tell. Never noticed how my hands arc trace is higher in the DS than in BS. Hmm...dunno what that means. ..maybe a gentle pull cut swing which I have been hitting often.

Let body turn carry club to A2 with very passive arms/wrists..almost like skating club away on the floor keeping belt buckle facing grip...... Aaand then arm lift to top. My right elbow wants to bend less.Club wants to drop on it own to shallow out without some sort of reroute.

I'm thinking I have been trying to lift arms to top without sufficient body turn to A2. .

I wouldn't take it back too shallow or rolled. It'll want to steepen.

You mean at the top?

If it's shallow (too shallow), it has to steepen to hit the ball.

We've always tried to work you to a shallow position at the top so you could steepen a bit coming down and hit a pull or a fade given your dislike for the pushes and big hooks.

But don't get super shallow.

Not crazy about the clubhead drop out of my right hand at A4. Not sure how to clean it up yet. 

Work with shorter swings to start and see if it happens with them.

Shorter..

Boy talk about feel ain't real.. that felt like I barely got the club to chest height before I transitioned to DS. 

 

Also hands set high at address to let them get away as far from me as possible.

    • I thought Minnie driver was great in GoldenEye!  Oh wait, that's not what you meant.   
    • Okay so, I have a few rounds in now and I'm starting to like this thing.  The last time I played I didn't have to do any editing after the round. It was only 9 holes, but I actually tagged everything exactly right and even got the pin placements right. 😄 I only had to go back and change 2 shots to positional shots.  I have 7 rounds in there now, so the data is starting to get interesting. The first thing I've learned (okay, confirmed, because I already knew it) my wedge play is not very good. I was surprised to find that I'm getting up and down only about 20% of the time with my 54 or 60 degree wedge in my hands. Interestingly, when I putt from off the green, I'm getting up and down 73% of the time. (That's with 15 attempts, so that's interesting to me.)  The second thing I learned is I am super-inconsistent off the tee with the driver. Take a look:  There is almost 100 yards difference between my longest drive and my average drive. Which tells me that for every really good drive I hit, there's at least on real stinker.... probably more than one. Some of those have hit trees, but some of them (too many) have been straight up shanks, hosel rockets, tops, flubs, thins, toes, heels, and/or skanks. If I can eliminate the totally sh!tty ones, I think my average would come up closer to my performance average. I'm not good enough at math to calculate my standard deviation, but I bet it's huge.  I did find that I'm just about as likely to miss left of the fairway as I am to miss right of the fairway.  I plan to start to work my practice around the areas that need improvement.  Of course, I'm going to continue to work on my swing in general, as it can still get better. But consistency off the tee and wedge play will have to get a little more attention going forward. 
    • Yay, was able to get to the range today!  Half of the bucket (20 balls or so), worked on top of the swing work. Taking club back to A3.5, pausing, then while looking at the ball extending the right elbow without turning, then extending the elbow while turning a bit. After like 4-5 reps, I would paus it at A3.5, and try to extend my right elbow as I hit the ball like 100 yards or so.  Quarter of the bucket, worked on some lower body movement from A4 to A6. Just trying to stay down a bit more as my arms get more around me (right elbow extending). Taking the club to A3.5, pausing, shift pressure under left foot as I bring the hands/arms down by extending right elbow. When I was looking at my left knee, from A4 to A6, as I bring my arms down, my left knee rotates back overtop my left foot, and my knees stay flexed at A6. From A6, I would make a small pump and hit shots like 60 yards or so by bringing my right side through. This got me back to getting my right side through better.  Quarter of a bucket making swings were I focus on manipulating the club path and face a bit. I would think, "lets hit a straight draw/hook". I would try to see what feel would make it do that. If I didn't hit it how I wanted on one shot, I would try to make some slow practice swings through impact to get a better feel and try to see if those feels worked for the next shot. Turns out, I am halfway decent at making the correct change on the next shot. Example, when trying to hit a straight draw/hook I hit a low pull cut. I figured as I closed the face down, I brought the club path left. So, I did a few slow swings from A6 to A7, closing the face but also swinging out. On the next shot I hit a straight hook. After hitting a leftward shot, I would flip to trying to hit a big cut. Also, I really focused on making the same turn through the ball. I really had to focus on manipulating the club with my hands and arms.  To curve left, more of a left hand forward revving feel. It feels like I start revving the left hand over from like A5 through impact.  To curve right, more of right palm staying up more longer. It feels like I am delaying the crap out of the club turning over.   
    • There's a guy in my league who's about 70-75 ish, and quite a bit overweight as well. He carries only LW, SW, GW, PW and I think a 9-iron. The rest of his bag consists of various fairway woods. He's playing off single digits so it seems to work for him. He does play the "forward tees", but I've played with him and he seems long enough to play at least the middles. From what I remember of his bag, there is something like an 11-wood, 9-wood, 7-wood, 5-wood, 3-wood and driver in there. No hybrids though. Of course he has a putter and I think he has a chipper too. 
    • Agreed. I think that's just prize money. It looks like most guys in the top 200 have a "bag deal", A "hat deal", a "logo deal" etc. ... That can bag him (see what I did there? 🤪) at least an additional $250K to $1M per year.  Take a look at this article. It's a little dated (2018) but the information is still pretty good.  Ever Wonder How Much a PGA TOUR Pro Makes to Wear All Those Logos? Recently Golf.com spoke with a top sports agent, who spoke anonymously about the kind of money a PGA TOUR pro makes off of endorsement deals.  I do understand that they have to pay their own travel expenses and they give their caddies a cut. But even so, it doesn't sound to me like these guys are just scrapping by.
