I have nothing to add about your swing, but what is going on with that fan?

That's what happens when you swing a club in the living room.

It's been 6 ish weeks since I broke my ankle in a climbing fall. So eager to start rehabing but non weight bearing for 2 more weeks.  Since I can't make full swings probably till July, have been

Trying.. 🥴

It’s a feature. @GolfLug did that to make room so he could swing.

@mchepp, @DaveP043. Y'all are a trip..lol. The blades slant down. Something about this design being able to funnel more air.

Leave it to @GolfLug to have the most fancy fan I have ever seen. But what I really wanted to ask is how is the piano going?

Wife's idea about the fan. I wouldn't dare to come up anything like that on my own.

Piano? I don't know, I just use it as a back stop. My kids use it to make some interesting sounds. They claim it to be 'music'.

That's right.. Since I have soooooo much width in my swing. Not sure why @iacaskeeps hammering me about not having enough width. 😜

Very good. Now do that a million times, and record yourself often and make them at least as good as those.

This is the right advice pretty much at all times in golf 🤣

Notice how quickly that right elbow bends?

(That’s still way better but you can be wider.)

Ok, the left arm feels full stretch at A3 (ish) already. Struggling to stretch it to give right hand further room to not fold. 

I can raise the hands higher but then would look like Count Drac and head starts tilting left (forward) and at that point I can barely see the ball.

I know you don't do Android but wife has i-phone if you have time for a facetime lesson this weekend.

The right elbow can be farther off your ribs, no? 🙂

Per convo, will add bit more tilt down and torso turn and get left arm to rise up higher.

@boogielicious, where is the video of the drill wherein you keep the right elbow straight by keeping tension on a piece of rope? I can’t find it?

Well, what I am trying to say that the left arm is acting as the rope I am stretching to max. 

Anyway, I will post something better tonight.

You're the one who added that. The later videos seemed fine here.

Right, but you can stretch it "around" you more, or "in front of you" more. The right elbow can both bend and/or elevate.

Yeah. Basically.

Your left arm can be straight but if you bend your right elbow and pull it "behind" you, you're very, VERY narrow. Conversely you could lift your arms straight up in front of you and be VERY wide.

In this thread. Page 3


It is also similar to the soft trail arm challenge feel.

Get off my chest!!! Sole focus on getting arms above chest - no contact.

    • I always con myself into believing, no matter the circumstances, that my round should have been lower. I remember one instance in a particular when I shot a 9 over 81 and cited all the mistakes I made that cost me breaking 80. One of my playing  says "Are you kidding? The way you scrambled, you turned an 87 into an 81.".
    • Went to the range. Mostly worked out trying top speed the swing up a bit to see were it is at. Pretty decent with the irons, not so good with the driver. Then hit some pitches with the new wedges. Liking them 🙂. Still got to get use them looking thick.  Still got too slow down the backswing to feel it stop sooner. So it doesn't carry on as long. Not ready to ramp up.        A smidge closer, but could like to be a bit shorter. This was slower backswing. Back of left hand facing away more. Hands feel like they are head height (right ear) when I start the downswing. Could stand about 1 ball width further away from the ball (maybe).    Driver Swing - This one will take a while, with a lot of fricken effort. I might spend a lot of my time on the driver versus the irons. The same feel for the irons just don't work here. At least a the speed I want. So for the swing, the feeling is keeping the hands as far away from the body as possible at A3, but not by just keeping the arms straight as long as possible. The feeling was to start the downswing when the hands are head height. I think going forward, I am going to try to feel like the hands are not at head height, but more at shoulder height. Wrist bent at 90 degrees and hands are at my shoulder.  Besides that, needs to be a bit more squatty, and more right side over the ball (squishy).    Iron and more so Drive 1) Keep feeling like the downswing starts, and the hands stop ascending at or just short of shoulder height. I am starting to feel this position better. I can stop by backswing with the driver when I feel my right arm travel on way too much.  2) Feel like hands are pushing away from the body at A2 to A3. I like this feel to help feel where my hands are at in the backswing. If they just go up, and I let the right elbow break then it just carries on for days.  3) Still work on squat move with extension.       
    • Unless they changed something, GG has no way to collect hole position on the fly, so the only way to get it would be through editing afterwards.  I think that automatic detection of the putting stoke will always be a bit iffy, but that it the price to be payed for not having to tag.  
    • I originally had a handicap goal (which was carried over from last year BTW). But since it only contributes to more stress and less enjoyment as my handicap has steadily risen this year, I have decided to just have a goal of breaking 100 more often.
