My Swing (GolfLug)

Got in 6 rounds in 5 days at MB Barefoot. Really enjoyed the complex. Grades: 

Driver: D- (Except for day 1 at huge fairways of Farmstead- only non Barefoot course we played) it was terrible. Had a 100 swing thoughts and couldn't stick with one.

Irons: A . Struck them well and got better with best on the last day. Had only two bad misses all day. Came through with some clutch shots. On the last day at the Dye course (tightest of the all the Barefoot courses) I chucked the driver all together and drove all the short holes with my 4-iron and did well.

Pithing B- Not terrible.. but had trouble with clean hits on rain soaked sloppy surfaces. Workable though. 

Chipping B- Nothing to write home about but also not terrible.. had a couple of complete duffs but got on the green for two putts most times.

Putting C- Welp, my love affair with poor greens pace continued. They received a massive amount of rain on Sunday and I could never get myself to hit the ball hard enough. 

All in all game is in a better place than a month ago. Shot in the 80s all 5 days which I haven't done in a well over year.

😊.. Need to find solid feel that I can sustain. Drove great day 1 and then it disappeared. 

But yeah, back to working on it.

Trying to not let right arm/wrist get bendy-hingy. Feels like a half swing and flat like a m..

Thank @iacas. Yes I will get the tilt back into it. Have been setting only driver square (irons still hooded, albeit less) so the palmy grip (yes, true) is a mental crutch till I get a bit more confidence. Keeping the left arm super soft and lightly resting on the grip to not stress the forearm injury (works fine I think).

Bit more tilt. Suitcase hold for more hand depth. Soft arms, elbows, chest, lats, full turn and go.

I messaged you a picture.

Stop worrying about depth. Get the right elbow off your ribs and (not rigid) but "straight" feeling.

Need to find a consistent feel to sustain this picture. As of now it is 'keep right arm straight' as long as possible.

Trying to ensure club is 'radiating' away from core, wrists not loading, and straight right arm feel. Everything still soft.

I know the trail hand grip is a bit palmy but not worrying about it much. I think allows me to chicken wing at impact to keep by lead forearm from being stressed. Again, hopefully not a big deal.

    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.

    • Day 48: Worked on priority piece with 4-iron. Multiple rehearsals between balls. Focused on having a quiet swing,
