My Swing (Wanzo)

Evolvr notes:

1. Keep same backswing feels and continue to work to shorten the arm swing on the backswing, stop arms when pivot stops

2. Keep head steady or feel it moving away from target slightly at start of downswing

3. Feel right side bend, right shoulder closer to right hip in downswing

4. Keep my tilt as I keep the body turning through 

lot of slow swings for now to work on this new feel   All with the goal to flatten the shaft and get clubhead coming into the ball a little more from the inside and a little shallower

Now that the season is winding down, at least for me, i'm going to start working on my swing a lot over the next few months.  Starting by trying to feel the head/pressure going away from target while my hands push forward into impact to try to get more of an inline impact.

extreme example of the feel i'm shooting for and my current swings below:

I usually dislike scrambles but a few guys from work wanted to play yesterday so we scrambled.  I hit some of the best shots I’ve hit in a long time.  Usually when I’m playing I try to just forget about mechanics as best I can but this kind of freed me up to accept the results while still thinking about incorporating a couple changes I’m trying to make.  So I’m encouraged to keep working my swing better over the winter.   Main things I’m working on which probably aren’t really going to change:

*hands in and clubhead up more on takeaway.  Felt it in a new way yesterday by focusing on keeping the left arm more connected to start back   

*shorten backswing

*whatever feel works to get club a little more shallow and in to out and more inline at impact.  lay shaft down, right elbow forward, increase right side bend, steady head to start down, cam champ shaft lean at impact.

it sounds like a lot but I’m feeling it more as one fluid motion at slower speeds during practice.

Working on hitting shots with as much shaft lean as possible, slower motion swings feeling the forearms and wrists firm through impact and keeping right wrist bend post impact, currently i dump the wrist angles quickly before impact and flip a little.

You want to shorten your backswing?  It is beautiful.  Are you having control issues?

my arms tend to keep going after my pivot stops....and i fight an early release causing mostly fat shots when i don't time it just right.  This pic shows it's pretty long, especially for a mid-iron.  But ultimately i'm more concerned with it syncing up with my body/pivot better.  Thanks for the comment.

I look at that backswing and I see power.  Your shoulders turn like a pro. I can see the early release a bit on these videos, and I bet that zaps some of the power.  But it seems to me that I would be asking about a cure that does not involve losing such a major asset.

He won't lose any "major asset." He flips right now. He's not being asked to turn his shoulders less, just not to let his arms run on a little as long, because that directly contributes to them trying to "throw out" so much from the top.

A fresh look at my swing with a new evolvr instructor.  Here are the notes and focus for now.  I’m looking forward to getting to work on this priority. 

1) your lower center needs to slide a bit more from 4-6. I think that will be easier if you flare your left foot more.

2)from 4-6 I would like your lower center to fall forward and down on to your left foot. Left knee is going to track over the left foot if there is enough flare to the left foot. 

Moving forward properly will make it easier to get the shaft inline with the lead arm at impact. 


I like his last note as a reminder too, I needed this....

Keep it Simple, short, slow, specific and see success.
