@DaveP043, I've seen your basement, your Golf IQ is pretty high :content:

LOL, I'm not so sure about that, I'm not sure that the ability to buy stuff coincides with any kind of IQ.  It definitely shows an interest, and an amazing degree of tolerance on the part of my wife.

Be the chicken now that's a steady head

Compared to what @woodzie264? 6 months - It looks pretty damn good to me. Nice work.  That is not an easy fix...actually nothing about changing your swing is easy. Well done. 

As someone who is still getting comfortable with this and recognizing my own tendencies this is what I see. Around 8-9 seconds you do the "press" action with the pad and let the thumb lie flat bu

@iacas, focused on keeping head steadier (with less downward/forward movement), while pushing right hip away from the wall

@GolfLug, I focused on, and felt, more weight to inside of my right foot while maintaining more flex in right knee.

critiques? I want to get some reps in, but I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.  You know it's a bad start when you need repeated correction on the drill meant to correct the swing flaw! :8)

 

There you go.. much much better.

Anyway, any time your head starts bobbing up and down, it should be a que that you are not rotating.

3/07/17 - priority piece: centered hip turn

I see my left elbow bends during backswing here, but I've been working on a more centered hip turn with less lateral movement

i am working on the same aspect of the swing.   Do what you can to shorten your swing on the backswing. The longer the arm swing the more chance your will have of the arms continuing past the shoulder turn. This will cause you to sway as well. Swinging the club to 10-2 on a clock face help with the feeling. 

It looks like that the wall drill has improved your sway. Keep up the good work. Improving is a never ending process.

Thanks for the feedback. I definitely feel like I try to take a bigger backswing than what is comfortable. I'll try taking a 10 o'clock backswing to see if that helps

You may have to exaggerate the movement to actually get it to show in a video. If the feeling of 10 o'clock is causing you to still go to far then go to 9 or earlier. 

I do want to preface all of my tips with do what works for you. Everyone is different. Don't stray to far from your priority piece. Keep working on the hip turn until one of the pro's on here has you move on from it.

Thanks - yeah, I wasn't going to change my priority piece until given permission :-)

Today at range: less lateral motion, less head bob than yesterday. Still not great, but improving...I think. I know this angle isn't perfect, but I was only posting this for showing some improvements, not for further eval. I will post again next week after more wall drills

I could be wrong but i thought the point of the wall drill was to get the hips away from the wall laterally. Creating a spinal tilt and the like.  "Toward target" "bumping foward" etc.  You look much steadier but still look like your are "turning in a barrel", maybe @iacas could clear up.

you are right - the fact I'm no longer swaying back is progress. In one of my videos, Erik told me not to move my head forward, so I'm working on "pressing my right hip away from the wall" while not moving my head forward...this is my struggle. Thanks for noticing - I appreciate it

I second this, I have the same problem with swaying and head dipping at the top of the backswing. I finally figured out that I do this because I try to rotate my shoulders past 90*, you're doing the same thing. 

This is also a good drill that helped me with swaying.

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
