Working with more bent right hand, it felt much more controlled actually, and I could use the arms less with less right forearm dominance.

Sorry about the zoom level, didn't realise it was zoomed!

Wow what a resource, i've got some work to do here, i suffer from all the symptoms you mention on an Accellerator poor distance control, i also miss a lot of short putts through this accelleration i think.

So the key is to deaccerallerate the putter before impact?

Do i need to add extension P3 to P4?

 

Wondering if it's why i'm not able to get the arms going upwards more and more width. 

Been so long not posting on here and working on (what seems pointless) efforts with my game I forgot my password lol

Extension of what? Your back? Your knee(s)? Your arms? Wrists? What?

Sorry i meant my back!

Then… no. No more needed:

I would start working on the setup (you're a bit close to the ball) and the wrist/elbow conditions at the top.

Got any video you recommend seeing? I need to work in right elbow in BS but I never seem to be able to get that ER and in a laid off position at the top (like @mvmac

Decided to address the ball with a clubface width away from the ball...then engage glutes/back/upper body to the ball so i'd hit it.

@deason, have you experimented with a bit more hip turn in the backswing?

I only watched the first 8I DTL video, but there's not a lot of hip turn there, and it leads to a bit more of an "arms" swing than you likely want…

Hi all,

Its been a while.

Worked on some stuff last year that got me to an ok placr but i suffer from being too flat. Ive worked on more steeper tilt in backswing and hand path to match. 

Only issue im banging my head against the wall is my P3-4 i lost the arms in front and really suffer in transition. 

Ive read about extensor action which may be what i need to feel. but when i try this i still get internal with left arm. 

Drills drills drills i need them...just not sure what can help me.

I don't like how close you are to the ball at setup, and then you are narrow and across the line at the top. From there you attempt to shallow, but then you immediately swing hard left.

It's not a powerful motion, and it's likely not a very consistent motion.

I'd improve the setup, and work on the club not twisting across the line at the top. In the first image below I'm not even sure your right hand is still as "attached" as it should be.

A face-on view would help.

Hi,

Define narrow at the top, this is what i meant about what is it i need to feel to get better structure there?

My feeling is i've got to get better setup at the top to ensure I can shallow better.

From a face-on view, you'd see your right hands closer to your chest or right shoulder than you'd want. And you don't want to be across the line like that, as that sets up a poor downswing sequence.

You've got to get a better setup (address position) too. Get the club out from between your legs.

Your arms actually hang inward a little.

    • 100: Took me about 3-4 years at 4-5 round a year to break 100, was not playing a lot back then. I shoot a 96.  90: About two year after breaking 100 (20 rounds), shoot a 86 and a 89 two rounds after that. Just managing blow-ups better help me a lot, did not have a single birdie in those 2 rounds but no triple either. Better control of my driving helped a lot (less slices).  80: Not yet. Hoping this year 😊 My lowest round last year was 83 and now i'm waiting for the snow to melt!!  70: N/A
    • 100 & 90 - not sure.   I started golf pretty early.   I'm sure I shot in the 80's some time around 14 years old.    80: I shot 80 on the nose more than a handful of times between 1999 and 2018.   but never could get below, till I shot a 78 last summer.   which was baller.   70:  yeah, we'll see about that.  
    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) Also, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?
