Thanks Erik.  Amazingly, 70 doesn't feel any older than 69 did yesterday.  ;-)

How about 61 when you joined the site? Haha...

Wow it's a super birthday day! Lots of 12/13s.

@Missouri Swede didn't put his year in so I don't know how old he is. @Kloeshuman is one year shy of a decade mark. And @MiddleTees gets to play from the middle tees.

We also have birthdays today by @Rick Morgan, @vardon_grip, @skram, @pc9460, and @GGRadio1213, whose birthday is right there in his username. :-)

Happy Birthday all of you!

If you haven't put your birthday in, please do so. It's right in your profile, so just visit your page and click "Edit Profile."

Thank you!

    • Yeah, something like that. It's getting a little off topic here, but this one's good: Yeah, so, I don't know about that one Cedric. Mac's never been on GEARS, and almost all of the Tour players will actually WIDEN the lead arm adduction angle during the early part of the backswing, because their left shoulder is moving forward a bit in their shoulder joint. I'll update the other topic with a bit more on this. You gave me an idea for a tweet.
    • Day 15 (30 Nov 22) - Rainy outside, so I did mirror work focused on setup, making slow-mo 1/2 swings.  
    • Interesting. No adduction until P2-P4 reminds me of how Rory and Xander's load the arms. I'm not heading that direction with my swing (modeling mine on how Mac O'Grady loaded his arms). Would be interested to look at individual swings on GEARS as opposed to the tour average for this one.
    • I generally need to improve my ball striking, but don't we all Per Arccos, ranked from most to least strokes lost per round: I need to improve my mid range iron game. I play at a low to mid single digit handicap level for approaches shorter than 125y or 175+y. But I lose 2.6 strokes a round on approach shots 125-175 yards. I lose too many drives (as in, penalty strokes), even though my non-penalty drives are often awesome. Improve on those damn 6-9 foot putts. I lose 1.4 strokes a round just on those! Improve on very short short game. I'm playing almost at scratch from 25-50 yards but lose 1.4 strokes per round on shots 0-25 yards. In terms of what I'll actually do, I'll still spend most of my time trying to improve my ball striking. But I'll add in some sessions pitching from just off the green and need to get back on the putting green at all!
    • Well... The other key insight I remember from that video is that pros do very little adduction through A2~2.5, and in fact many pros abduct slightly as they use their SI joint to push out and create even more width through that point in the swing. The pro adduction happens in the ~A2.5-A4 portion of the backswing (well, of course then there's much more in the downswing but we're talking backswing)
