Yeah, good, KISS. :-) Check the finish with the belt forward, knees (left especially) extended, still in your tilts with good arm and club angles. You'll get it quickly.

Thanks for the note. That is helpful and confirms some of the feels I was going for. I’ll keep at it, keeping it simple and focused while confirming these checks. Thanks again.

Thought I would post a couple pieces of practice to this thread with the main drill and feels I’m working on daily right now. Trying to eliminate a small flip and have better club face control. Working on keeping club outside hands going back, shallowing with right elbow leading going down then “hit it with my pivot”. So square club face that way as opposed to hands rolling over quickly. The “pump” is too big and I could stand to slow down a little more but heading in the right direction.

The pump is a bit too big (you can see the shaft steepen a bit), but the "hit it with the pivot" thing is kinda best done with a little speed. So long as the speed is with your hips.

Thanks Erik, I noticed that the practice motions looked good then on the hit the shaft did get much steeper. I’ll make that a focus.

I'm going to try to refresh this thread and get to practicing again.  I tried to mostly just play this summer, not focus on too much technical in my swing.  Mostly putting and short game when i did practice.  Got my handicap down to 6.6.  I went back over this thread and refreshed on some of the main ideas today.  I'll upload a video after I've had a couple of practice sessions working on these feels again.  One thing i found in my practice session today was it seems that hovering my club helps get me started with the things i need to work on, getting the clubhead up a little quicker going back and then shortening the back swing a bit.  Still feels a little awkward, but i know that long term i really need to get this down to become a more consistent ball striker.

I remembered this drill from the instruction portion of the site....this is a better description of what i was working on to help my backswing, kuchar takeaway drill.

Back on Evolvr and excited to work on my swing.  The main priority right now is to shorten the arm swing in the backswing, shallow more coming down, and get more in sync to help eliminate my miss of a pull and improve contact. 

1.  feel a narrower backswing, feel more hinging so the club gets to parallel without the hands moving much

2. feel the right tricep stay on the rib-cage, but with soft arms.  Upper body will turn less and keep elbows and hands from lifting at the top.

3. drill: setup a club distance away from a wall behind me and practice club hinging up and missing the wall

Keeping the same feels for now in my practice sessions.  Need to keep working slow. Wall drill to get the club up faster, feel a narrow backswing and wrist hinge.  Just going to add to feel the right elbow stay more in front early through p2.  Instead of right elbow getting behind my shirt seem so quickly.  Keep feeling right elbow forward and shallowing coming down.  More focus on backswing for now though.

Full swing evolvr notes:  keep working the drill to feel the backswing more narrow and shorter to stop the arms from running on.  Exaggerate the laying down the shaft feel a bit more and slow way down especially on the pump where I hit the ball so I can keep the shaft from tipping out.  Make sure to keep steady head to start downswing to keep axis tilt.  Feel swinging out to the right through impact. Some drills before I got these notes.

Can't help with your swing but it looks like you pretty much know what you're doing.  I'm just wondering, is that your home practice set-up?  If so, it looks pretty sweet.  It looks like you have a projector--do you have any golf related software?

I built it a few years ago and I have a flightscope with some tru golf software.  I don’t use the software or flightscope near as much as I thought I would.  I use the practice area almost daily, especially in the winter.  But I’ve found I kind of prefer to not get distracted by how far I hit shots or the numbers when I’m working on my swing.  So I just don’t turn it on often.  I’ll use it to check my swing path or work on wedge distances some.  But typically I just leave it off and work on my swing at home then I’ll see my ball flight etc when I’m at the range.  Although this time of year I will turn it on some since weather is bad.

Putting notes per latest evolvr lesson:  

-Setup tweaks looking better, keep them a focus until they are natural.  

-Need to keep working on steady head, still rocking a bit too much

-start working on feeling the putter fall on the down stroke.  Feeling as if gravity is propelling it forward.  Have a little too much "hit" and long follow through.

How tall are the ceilings? I am 6'4 and was wondering how tall of ceilings I would need.

they were 10 feet before finished, putting in the drop ceiling took it down to about 9'6" i think.  I'm only 5'10 and it's plenty for me.  My uncle who is your height has swung in the room without problems, but i'm sure it depends on your swing and you want to make sure you don't feel cramped or that you are changing your swing to accommodate the ceiling height.

We're looking to build soon and I would love to have something similar in my basement. I was thinking getting 10 ft but I didn't really know. I have pretty long arms with my 6'7 wingspan.

Evolvr notes:

Keep exaggerating the takeaway changes and  flattening of the shaft motion with out  pauses at a very slow speed.

Add in left wrist flexion on the down swing.

Keep monitoring head movement in the downswing

Latest Evolvr Notes:

Add in a feeling that the hips are opening to start the downswing as the shoulders are slow to open or even not opening.  this should help tie some of the other pieces i'm working on together.

    • Exactly my point. You're choosing to exclude a brand of product that you admit makes a good product simply on the off chance you don't like the clubs that the resale value is going to be lower than you feel it should be. While you're obviously entitled to do so, I don't think that is a good reason to exclude a company and not even consider them when making future purchases. We aren't talking about a car or something here, we are talking about a couple hundred bucks at the most, and that's only on the off chance that you don't like the clubs. Out of curiosity, which irons are you referring to and how much did you pay for them in 2011?
    • I recently had a tournament and a friend's event all outside in 85+ deg and 90% humidity. The keys for me were to Cooling towel, water, Gatorade, good food (turkey sandwich and banana) and an umbrella. Use all of these early and often. Also if you are walking go at your pace, don't rush to keep up. Take a few extra seconds to catch your breath, wrap your head or get some water.   Finally, I found that taking my hat off in the shade and using some cool water was a big help.   Good luck
    • So Mr. 202 has been looping for Matt Every. Not a star, but a guy that has had some success. He has two career wins and had a second-place finish and a third earlier this year. But ... Now Matt has to answer questions about his idiot caddie and he's missed the cut three of the last four tournaments.  Trey better hope that Matt really likes him.
    • Not to me. If person buys a new set of irons in the spring, only to find out that he hates them in the fall, he will then take a big hit to make a change. My Pings are from 2011 and they are still worth half of what I paid for them. My son plays TM and loves them. They do make a good product, just too many changes.
    • It's been over a month since I started experiencing a sharp pain in my chest and armpit area in my lead side from apparent overuse. I am guilty on numerous occasions of reaching for the large bucket at the driving range, sometimes even twice in one session, and just overall engaging in very fast paced, frustration-filled practice sessions. I've tried everything from the RICE method in the early stages of the injury (rest, ice, compression and elevation), visited a sports specialist orthopedic who pretty much just confirmed my own self diagnosis of an intercostal muscle strain from overuse and advised that with these types of injuries there isn't much that can be done other than give it time and ease back into normal activity over time. Very eager to continue playing and practicing, being that it's mid-season here in the northeast, I tried playing again just a week after initial injury and seemed to have set myself back. I then gave myself more rest time, about three weeks to be exact of not swinging a club, and started incorporating stretches and light weight training to help with the rehab. I've since played about three rounds and hit the driving range on one occasion but continue to experience pain. While not as extreme as how it felt when I first injured myself, I'm frustrated with the lack of progress. Definitely thought I would be good by now. Now I've totally learned my lesson and realized what not to do in the future and even improved my swing substantially so that it's smoother and less violent from reading several books (Hogan, Penick) and practicing my slow swings without a club in front of the mirror. What I am curious to know is if anyone has experienced a similar golf injury and managed to successfully treat it and get back on the course pain free, and of course how long did it take...
