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.

Temp finally above freezing. Sun was out. Got about 20 mins in before I lost my toes. 😊

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.

    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results. 
    • I didn't know the gaps were going to be that big when I ordered the kit. The installation instructions as far as mounting them were pretty lacking, I'll do some more research and see if I can find how others have mounted it but I'm not sure how much closer I can get them to each other based on how big the brackets are and how far the brackets/motors stick out from the ends of each tube.   Edit: I did just realize I could make the side screens roll up on the insides rather than the outside like they do now which should help close the gaps some
    • He didn't want to spoil it for me because I hadn't listened to that one yet. It's actually a good pod cast from the few that I have heard so far. Lots of good "inside" information about players and tours etc...
    • Why side screens like that? With gaps that you have to clip each time?
