I’d kill for that swing. I have a downswing problem and I hope adjusting my right hand at address will help. (Baseball swing.) I hook it when I connect or hit some god awful fat shots when I don’t. Driver chippind and putting have all come together for me just the mid irons. To the point where the cam seriously considering wood type clubs from 125 yrs and out. lol

I don't love that trail elbow getting around you there, @GolfLug. You know how to work on that.

Hmm. Yes, It seems I have already have it going behind me by A2. Bit of grip work (need more in fingers) required too. 

Thanks.

What kind of ball is that?  It does not look round, also it must not be too firm m(or your wall would not look like it does) but it does not look like foam.

It's just one half of a Callaway practice wiffle ball.

Don't roll it so quickly. Turn your body, ELEVATE the hands (by hinging UP to your right shoulder). The roll throws the club too far around you.

Tiger helping a college golfer with this one. I like how he calls swinging it too far inside "wasted motion." Inspires me to never do that again 😄

36-45 yesterday. Lost swing on the 12th the hole and couldn't troubleshoot until the 17th. Both block slices and pull hooks showed up. It's like blowing a tire cruising at 75 mph on the freeway. 

It seemed right arm/hand started becoming dominant early in the DS. Maybe.

Put my left arm on top of chest, rehearsed a few slow left side rib stretch/steady head backswings and finished ok on 18th. 

Murr Christmas yall.

Should I just quit worrying about the elbow for a week or so?

If you want to for Christmas, sure. Otherwise… no.

Good on the left (could get the elbow off your ribs more if you'd like), more chaotic and tougher to build speed in the right sequence on the right.

This could help me as well. I need to set up my phone and hitting some shots into my practice net. First things first clear the hitting area that full of dog poo

@GolfLug, buy yourself (or use if you haven't already) the Swing Extender. I think you can still find them for $29. Don't pay the $49+ I've seen them going for occasionally.

Happy New Year All!

Loosey-goosey at the top. The extender will be here in a couple of days.

Guessing, not enough torso turn/sync. Not enough hip depth. Too much arms/hands.

    • Day 87- Slow, short practice swings with short practice club incorporating foot work. 
    • I'll tell you what has helped me.  Get something like Shotscope and be diligent about entering your putts and the flag locations.  You more likely to improve in an area you are measuring.  Lots of people (myself included) think they are good or bad at something but find out things are different when they start measuring it.  Develop a standard putt. This can be done indoors, even if it rolls too far for your putting mat. Just stick a pillow there. Don't worry about the distance on your mat. Just develop a standard putt. The most comfortable and repeatable putt you can possibly hit.  When you get to a course hit your standard putt a few times. Don't aim at a hole, just hit your standard putt and pace off how far it goes. Ideally on a flat spot, then an uphill spot and a downhill spot if you have time. Pace those off. My standard putt is often around 12 paces on many greens.  Then when I'm playing if I have to hit a 12 paces putt on a flat green I know what to do. Plus its not too hard to adjust up a bit or down a bit for 10 to 15 paces and what not.  If you want to take it further, develop a mini-standard putt. I have one that's usually a 6 footer. Then when I have a 6 footer I know what to do. Again, it's not too hard to adjust a bit for 4 footers and 8 footers.  So, develop a standard putt. The most comfortable, repeatable putt possible. When you get to the course see how far that standard putt rolls. You can make adjustments from there. (Just think how confident you'll be if you end up faced with "your standard putt" on the course. Then if you'd like, develop a 6 footer stroke. Those two will get you through most situations that are at all makable. Remember to measure and/or chart your improvement.  PS > Shot scope tells me I improved about 3 stokes using the above method. 👍😁👍
    • Day 230: played a putting game in the living room with my son. 
    • Day 2: 2/24/2024 I did backswing work without a club, with a piece of pvc and with a club in front of the 2 corner mirrors in the basement for 10 minutes today. I also putted with the putting mirror and perfect putt today. 
    • Day 482, February 24, 2024 45 minutes on slower downswings after JEP and a lesson. I can't let the grip get too slack or the results aren't quite as good, even though I'm going slower. The shaft tends to stand up a little bit in my pseudo-transition.
