@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.

@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.

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.

    • Sounds like you’re saying, ‘ why bother with DNA when the FBI has been using fingerprints and hair for years?’ Metaphorically speaking.
    • Best drive of my life!  look at that swing plane lol  
    • Not sure if I’m misrepresenting him here, but I think Erik’s point is that while shaft bend, lie angles, etc have been studied for years, there new, more accurate ways to check old information which may lead to new ideas or correct old misinformation and if that possibility exists why wouldn’t someone in your position be interested in growing professionally.  As you prob know, Erik is very science, numbers, FACT driven and if there are new innovative, more accurate, ways to test things, he prob sees it as an exciting opportunity and couldn’t understand ignoring that opportunity. 
    • Back at it again.     did a bit of work today and was able to video.  Though, given the proximity of they bays at the dome, pretty much impossible to get a face on view.     I’ll try to get one if I can ever get bay #1.      anyways, here’s a 6i DTL.     
    • Day 155 (26 Nov 21) - Got in the backyard w/8i and Birdie Balls.  First couple of series, seeing pushes right.  Decided to work on closing the stance  and squaring the club face to the target path to get a more right to left flight. Kept the swings to 1/2 to 3/4.  Last few series (groups of 3) had the ball moving in the desired flight path.
