My Swing (GolfLug)

Round and outside practice rained out. Will do video next time. Few notes:

1. Arms unified, in front of chest and hang low. Especially left arm should hug the chest softly (actually a good feel to maintain throughout the swing).

2. Let chest 'drop' to the ground with NO pressure on shaft or club. This will be ultra important and ensuring club mass will get completely behind with FULL shoulder rotation at A4 and STAY behind at transition.

3. Keep shoulder plane steep. Take away should begin with left shoulder pushing 'beneath' right shoulder. This will get shaft vertical at A3.

4. Also no funny business with hands or lifting till A3

5. Did I say keep chest 'dropped' down! You lift, you dead.

4. Feel FULL left rib and left arm stretch at A4. Hands pushed away up and back.

5. Keep arms to body and turn through. If done right, club will want to rollover post impact.

Extra credit for a 'patient' turn through..😊

Feels that worked well on course. 

1. Left hand/arm goes along for a ride in the BS. 

2. Vertical (-ish) turn/flow of shoulders, arms and club. Horizontal element leads to pushes and pulls. Especially driver.

Poor putting and botched long irons has till the scoring still in the doldrums, but had a good driver outing yesterday. 8/14 FIRs. 

Focus on width and turn (left rib stretch) at A4, soft 'stretchy' left hand/arm. Feel is more of 'carry' the club to A4 then Doing well on being 'patient' through DS and impact. Less jumpy. 

Can I here someone to putt for me? lol. Had being doing great with distance control but had hard time adjusting to speed yesterday and missed bunch of 3-4 foot comebackers. Whatever... not too concerned/focused on the putting at the moment.

Check your acceleration profile. It might not be just "can't adjust to the speed."

Yes, felt like I was guiding the ball. Need to get back to popping it a tad. Will get butchered on RNK greens with this stroke.

Sure. But putting is easy to fix.

I want to see some W-I-D-T-H in like ten days.

No warm up.. 

No width?

C’mon Vishal. You can do this. No reason to have that right elbow bending that much.

No reason for the club to go back anywhere near that far.

Will keep at it. Obviously what I'm feeling ain't real.

Managed to get one of two drills recorded before skies opened up. Letting my back completely open up to target to get a good turn and pushing out club away from me to get width.

Pushing club away can be better for sure.

I noticed last night during my width drill that if I feel turning 'into' my trail ankle from A1 to A2 allowing my lead knee to break a bit, A4 feels stretched out but  also stable/stacked. From here I feel like I can just go.

Also, making sure left arm and hand stays 'dropped', soft and unloaded as much as possible.

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

No flip flops?! That’s bold to swing with a driver inside! You are definitely more man than I am :-)

I wish my hips opened up at impact like yours. Keep up the good work

    • I can send you some club head covers if you like!  😁 They look good. Hope you love them. 
    • Played a local course a buddy runs. Temperature at tee time was 19F.  Hardly any snow on the ground. Previous experience under such conditions has taught me the ball will land and bounce like it hit a concrete parking lot, best off playing a links style run it up game. So the T300s stayed home. Out came the "other" bag with my beloved Yonex ADX tour blades. Threw in a Mizuno Grad 1 iron for tee shots. Brought along one wood, my trusty M6 9 wood just in case I had to go over the wall to get  out of jail. Hit the ball well, knocking down everything shorter than a 6 iron. Got a lot of bad bounces, and a few good ones. Shot 87, which Ill take considering I was wearing Thorogood work boots and could barely feel my hands on the back, Despite winter gloves between shots. I guess I'm getting a little old for this much fun. lol

    • Man, those look nice. I love shiny things.  
    • Thursday and Today were 77-75. One birdie Thursday and two today and some solid play! This is following an opening year round of 85, so I am no longer a danger in harming myself! Today was really some good golf, nothing forced, played windy and rainy, just a solid round.
