That's really not that far off.

Good.

Ok that’s good to know; hopefully I get it soon. 

thanks for the extra help with this move. It’s has been rough.

I started hitting a tiny fade over the holiday weekend and I knew something was bad with my swing.

I was only able to hit about 20-30 balls before a big storm came rolling in.

I only have one video of what my swing reverted into.

YUCK!

I wish I could’ve captured a face on to see how the leaning tower was doing in the full swing. 

I’m upset this happened, but I’m not too surprised. I don’t quite know what to do with my arms in transition with the leaning tower. Maybe I should focus on keeping my chest closed longer while I transition?

I’ll keep doing my drills at any rate. I’m pretty adamant about keeping my path in-to-out and hitting some type of push draw while I make these changes.  

Later at home, I tried to work it out. I got a feeling of the club dropping and working “down and around” from the inside at P5ish to P7-8. Hopefully I can get to the range again soon.

Yep. Forearms rolling over puts the club high and outside. Right palm has to stay facing out longer. (You have your own feels for this, as you know.)

That’s good info, forearms and right palm were 2 things I never thought about. Should help with feels.

Ill be sure to work on that and -at minimum- correct the path before I play again.

Today’s session, more leaning tower drills.

Have been hitting the ball very well. All draws, no fades. Made sure to stay deep and come from inside when I played. Didn’t throw my hips like crazy either, didn’t feel like it anyways.

Driver is money.

Wedges are trash.

DTL DRILL

backswing can look funny when I do the drill, not an issue.

FACE ON DRILL

Still not good enough as usual. I’m trying tho.

FACE ON SWING

Pretty indicative of where I’m at as far as leaning tower goes while hitting a real shot.

3/4 WEDGE 85 yard shot

These are giving me problems. I feel like I don’t have the time to do my moves on shorter swings. I must get better to score in the short term...which oddly isn’t my top priority.

And of all clubs, I don’t draw the little wedge shot, go figure. I blade em when I try to really come from inside during play.

Gotten a bit flat. That’s why driver is fine and wedges suck. Too shallow with wedges.

Two slightly different swings.

Haven’t been able to practice for real since Thursday. So 5 days. Obviously doing swings around the house and outside, but it doesn’t stick unless I hit balls correctly.

Bad session.

FIRST SWING

Was very unhappy the downswing was steeper than the backswing. Unfortunately, I think it gets worse from here.

SECOND SWING

Really tried to fix path and hit a draw. Can’t revert to outside in.

THIRD SWING  Face on

No leaning tower to see. Failure. Then my phone died during the face on drill swing. Double fail.

Will try tomorrow. Basically when I do leaning tower, I can’t get the club on plane. When I get the club on plane, I go wild with my hips and hit fat shots. Totally demoralizing

You're being far, far too picky.

Well that’s good news, I’ll work on just leaning tower tomorrow.

Fades are ‘eeking’ back into my game. Afraid of reverting back to outside in.

Likely because the forearms are rolling over so fast. Extend up on the left knee, push the hips forward and up underneath you, and stick the finish position - hit your checkpoints.

If you can swing over the noodle as you do it, great.

Today’s session: More leaning tower

DTL DRILL

FO DRILL 

FO SLOW SWING (50%)

LAST SWING TO SEE WHERE IM AT/HOW THINGS ARE BEING ENGRAINED

Even though I flipped my wrists there. I think the leaning tower at full speed made tiny progress. Yesterday on top/today on the bottom.

If/once I get passed this move, I hope the next ones aren’t so hard lol.
