Day 22 (4,10) - Same idea as yesterday...  really trying to hone in that forearm rotation in the takeaway and backswing.  Used the smart ball today.

Day 391 - January 24, 2021

Backswing work focusing on A1-A3 and two things: the right elbow bending a bit earlier, the right knee staying slightly more flexed.

Day 20 - half swings with the 5-7-9 irons. Focused on consistent ball contact and follow through.  A good session with few bad strikes, most shots going/landing where planned....of course using practice foam balls as this was a backyard day.

DAY 52  January 24th   I spend almost 4 hours on the range continuing to work on more rotation, and less head movement.  The video of my swing looks a lot better than a month ago... So I feel I am making progress.  I continue to use the drills from "Train for Golf Like an Olympian."  Hitting 12 balls with each drill, doing rehearsal swings between balls hit.

Day 23 (5,11) - Rented a practice bay at the PGA store.  Wanted to get a better idea of ball flight than hitting into a net.  Also hit the driver for the first time since overhauling my takeaway.  Overall, I was pleased, but still have a long ways to go to where I am able to repeat this takeaway and backswing every time.

DAY 53  January 25th.   I went to the putting green.. started with working on starting the ball on line using the Pelz Putting Tutor.  Did that for 30 minutes... I try to do this each time I practice putting, since I want to be sure I can start the ball on line.  Then set up the STAR Drill.  I easily made 25  in a row from three feet.  When I moved the tees back to four feet, it was a MAJOR struggle.  As I took a few moments to analyze  what was happening.. it was ALL about the clutter in my mind... took a few cleansing breaths... worked on clearing my mind.  Then started again, and made 25 four footers in a row.  Who said, this game in NOT mental!!

I stopped after last Thursday.  Total frustration with golf and sat back to figure out what was going wrong.  Developing a new plan, one that is not so ambitious but one that my body can handle.

Day 1

Stretching - oh how I constantly need this. Gold Flex activity, did a warm up set before starting drills.

Worked on Driver, 5i, 7i, 9i, 48* hit about 35 balls focusing on drills.  Contact improved, alot!  Consistent center face, still had toe shots but a lot fewer.

I was getting my body to tired before starting to do my golf drills which lead to poor results.

Finished up with lower levels of Gold Flex then previous weeks.  

I am happy

More putting at 3' - 4' - 5', focused on not lifting head to look.  Some focus work on weight shift in backswing through downswing - teaching the body to shift and not stay on the back foot.

Day 392 - January 25, 2021

Good 45 minutes or so today. Maybe 50 balls, maybe a bit more. Added a little wrist hinge to help the club feel like it's gone back far enough sooner. Also helps the elbow fold a bit more.

    • It’s been 3 years since I posted a swing video but this offseason I am planning on doing a lot of work on my swing (I’ll be taking lessons every 3 weeks for 4-5 months). I just had my first lesson and we are working on shallowing out my swing, neutralizing my grip and getting me to stand closer to the ball. The first video linked here is my swing at the beginning of the season (showcasing my steep over the top move) and the second video is my swing today 10/21 about two weeks after my first lesson. I am currently a 15 handicap. I shot 12 over twice this year and one time shot 9 over. 8 iron in both videos.  
    • When I watch FO swings on my V1 app from various pros, they all seem to be similar those positions regarding club face. I don’t know if doing anything with this is beneficial but rather correcting body movements to create this ?    I believe it’s something that’s supposed to happen but many amateurs try to force it. Usually it’s another mechanic that’s faulty but they try to manipulate the forearms/wrists to release. Don’t know numbers but videos I just watched all have very close to 60*/120* to me.
    • I’m really curious to see vaccination rates in that young demographic and how that plays out since the risks are so low.  
    • -60-120 sounds like a lot but I have no idea how it compares.     -I would think it benefits face control to reduce it.  Or maybe the shallow the shaft/sasho stuff making it easier to close is relevant to discussion but either way that amount of closure happens? -I think it happens.      -my guess is others have less with more body rotation.  But it’s a straight up guess.  
    • My guess is they may have you specify that you're using the Titleist ball, but it will be better with the FlightScope too.
