Day 34 - December 4, 2021

Hit balls after junior lessons today. Starting to integrate the downswing feeling into my four-step swing… Swing to 2 or 2.5, to 4, to 5.5 or 6, pump and go. When I pump I make sure to throw the shaft behind me a bit more.

Day 163 (04 Dec 21) - mirror work, still fighting to have good rotation thru the swing, shaft position at impact and finishing with good rotation.   Definitely doing it in slo-mo helps.  Well worth the time.

Day 127:

Played 18 this morning. Cold morning but started off pretty well so didn't think it was affecting me, but ultimately played poorly on the front, and good on the back.

Day 405: Pulled out the Tour Striker PlaneMate and worked with that today. The protocols are in line with my priority pieces. I filmed them and things looked pretty good but I need to let my weight go forward more from the top.

Day 2. 12/07/2021

Day 1 of 30 day Covid-19 practice plan (early backswing).

Nice feel to this drill, thinking it might transfer well to pre-shot routine. Hitting balls into net from A2…. Wow solid strikes.

Day 167 (07 Dec 21) - worked on foot position today,  doing full swings with both driver and 5i.  Went from open to neutral to closed, paying attention to flight of the hard foam balls.   Note - just realized I forgot to post yesterday’s drills (easy pitches w/7i in the backyard - per rules I “missed” posting more than two days w/the past 28, tomorrow begins Day 1 again)

Day 129:

Worked on backswing, recentering, and start of downswing today. Mostly indoor rehearsals while I was in various meetings. Also hit some balls into the net outdoors, with an 8-iron.

    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
