Two notes:

  • Right elbow can come off your body more.

So last weekend round I tried to get elbow away from me, but I think I was unconsciously stretching arm out at address to do this and prolly locking elbow out, doing the wide-narrow (collapse at A4) -wide sequence instead of the other way around. 

Anyway, consciously made sure to have elbows unlocked at address today. Felt nice full stretch of left side ribs at A4 and except for one drive had a decent day (79) on the course.

Low hands, unlocked soft arms, pull right hip back, carry club with both arms, stay centered.

Way better! Way way way.

If I'm being picky (and the camera moves so it's not as much as these lines make it look - I drew lines on the pavement for more info, too):

Bit too much reverse tilt from a bit too much right hip not going "forward" diagonally here.

Tough to tell exactly with the camera moving a little, though. Tripods > wives. 😄

Or daughters... Heh. She took the new tripod to camp and it never came back. So her 'punishment' is to record me whenever I ask her. 

Yeah maybe I am overdoing the centered thing and then reverse bending to hold imaginary line from eye to ball to hold my structure centered. I think a result of that or maybe whatever. That might be tough to break but will work on it.

Thanks!

Hear, hear! Finally... no sixes, no doubles, no penalties!! 11 pars and 7 bogeys for a birdie free clean 77. 

Not sure if I will ever do that again. Calls for a couple of Scotches!!

Of course you'll do it again, and even better.  And really, just  "a couple"??

Got a chance to play with @DeadMan and his lovely wife and neighbor Darren at the Homestead Golf Club in Lakewood last weekend during a trip with my wife. Also met his kids for an after-game meal at his place. What an awesome family!

I have a DL swing video that he recorded and sent me but having trouble downloading it. Will try tomorrow. Played okayish with Daniel's borrowed club. And yes I did fly a couple of greens in Denver's thin air as advertised.. lol!

Striking wasn't terrible but the swing looks narrow as heck. Meh..

Please tell me it was cold and you were wearing a stocking cap to keep warm and not because you are a hipster!

I like the swing rhythm in the one.

No, not a hipster. Ha. It had been fairly cold until mid-morning. 

My head was starting to fry a bit after playing without anything on and it (hipster cap) was the only sun protection I had that morning at hand. I already have some more brown spots starting to appear on my head lately, didn't have a regular hat so had no choice but to look dumb in favor of protecting my bald head. 😊

Thanks for the compliment on the rhythm. Had a conversation with @iacaslast night and he said the hip sway was better (I am assuming compared to last year) from some other vids @DeadManhad filmed for me. I will post them once I get my phone to co-operate.

I keep forgetting that shoulder plane needs to be steeper at least somewhat match arm plane (I guess it's a feel) ... Grrrrr.

Hit some more 'roundhouse' pulls walking a few holes late last afternoon till I realized I was being a bit lazy and then straightened it out. For some reason I seem to have an aversion to letting chest drop a bit lower to the ground at address and really, through the swing. Slumpy shoulders and rounded upper back with low hangy arms (a feel) helps greatly. When done right arms rise to chin and whip through the ball without much use of torso (yet another feel..). Torso just goes along for a ride back and through.  

On a good note I am slowly getting to a point where I am still forcing my arms to come around to impact sometimes (posture thing as noted above) but not noticing any forced hand/wrist manipulations at all.

    • That is scary.   
    • No contest, #2.  As @iacassaid, an Ace is mostly luck as evidenced by the fact I have one.  I’ll take the great round and keep the scorecard on my desk to brag about.

    • Equalled my personal best today shooting 80. Needed a par on the last for 79 but caught my approach heavy and needed an up and down for par. The chip just didn’t roll out as much as I wanted so I missed my par put by a couple of inches.  On the plus side I shot my first ever double bogey free round and first ever no sixes round (I thought this would have me breaking 80 but too many bogeys) I must head over and claim my badges 👍
