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.. 🥴

See how the path is going to be more of a fade path though? This ties into the slightly laid off feel we’ve had you do to this point.

Interesting.. didn't even notice. Makes sense though. Thanks.

Few minutes today. Lost couple of weeks for work and travel. Still doesn't seem like I am getting to the widest. FEELS wide as heck.

It's not as wide as it could be because it goes out too much early, which then makes it go "around" more.

Shoulders turn steeper, hands go more straight back to start. Right elbow goes away from your ribs, not behind toward your shirt seam.

Ahh yes, that is correct! It feels like the whole hands-arms-club unit gets dynamically sucked 'into' me no matter how much I try to keep it away at the top and into transition.

It makes sense. Admittedly hard habit to break but at least I know now. Thanks.

Super plush lie chipping practice in the backyard this morning. It's like eating dessert for breakfast. Total guilty pleasure and no nutritional value.. 😂

Sorry about the darkness, #wiferules. Same attempt - hands straight back to get wide at top.

@GolfLug, by Sunday… a video of you with massive

W   I   D   T   H

As I said, days 2, 3, 19, and 20.

Yeah, so did day 19 drill with an imaginary band to help feel hand path A1-A2.

What differences do you see here?

Look at the right elbow.

W-I-D-T-H, man. You can't get enough. YOU can't get enough.

I think I am starting to understand the need for hand depth to gain width.

Kinda, but kinda the opposite too.

If you push your hands "out" early, they'll "suck in" late and fold/collapse.

If you just turn (ideally on a steeper angle with your shoulders), and lift, and fold barely… they'll be plenty wide and deep enough.

I have played with this push-out early then suck in collapse loopy move for so long, the Mylan coating on my brain pathways is like 40 years old veneer on hardwood.

I really need a few good rounds at some point with this move then I can get some trust and re-Mylan for good. I have literally been losing all context half way through the downswing and jump on the ball abandoning all trust. Scores are a bit comical but I understand where we need to go (I said 'we', hah). Need to survive the lows this year. Digging deep for patience.

    • Still no wedges! Jeez i am past 10 weeks on those now
    • Lol. Yeah well I’ve succumbed to just living with them. I’d rather quit than use all hybrids. Just can’t do it. If I have to hit a long putt…like 50+ feet….yeah, yeah I’m Sure I could shank a putt.    Imagine if someone completely covered your club head with lead tape into a ball. Then took all the markings off the grip. Then at the top of your back swing the lead tape comes off and you’re expected to hit the ball squarely. That’s how much feel I have for the club head. Be it a short chip or a full swing. Zero natural talent. 
    • Long second shot from the rough over water to a front pin ... with trees in the way I think?  Onto the green was unlikely, maybe I could see trying to hit it over the green or maybe into the bunker for that chance to hole out instead of a full swing.
    • How do you get the distance right?  I can get on GG the distance I hit the first putt, but not necessarily how far out I am.
    • It wasn’t a particularly good lie, either. I believe that’s what they said on the broadcast. I think he made the right play. What he needed to do was not put himself in a situation where he needed to eagle the final hole to tie.
