Left arm is a bit out at A5. Shaft follows a little. Both can be just a little bit deeper A4.5 to A6.

I got better (non-video) results with a deeper takeaway. However, I thought I was only masking a problem. 

I’ll do some mapping and make “being deeper >P4-P6 my priority”

Thanks!

And steep shoulders. It's not so much the takeaway as it is the dimension the arms and clubhead start down.

I understand the dimension part.

The steep shoulders part

  • Do you mean that the shoulders must be steep by the time I get to P4?
  • Or do you mean something else?
  • I’m understanding it as- “make sure shoulders are steeper in backswing (takeaway is not the problem)”

I’m not trying to be a pain, just making sure I understand the concept so I can practice correctly

I meant work on your shoulders being steep. It's a constant issue for you that leads to a bunch of plane changes. You rarely want to left bend, often "faking" it with the neck thing.

Today’s Session 8-17-20

Ive been practicing getting my shoulders steep, but haven’t had any success so I haven’t posted.

8i Swings

 

 

Im trying everything I know how to get them steep. I’m trying to left bend hard, but my neck just twists early. I feel like I’m blocking myself someway but I can’t figure it out.

Sometimes I can get really steep, but there is no width, and I just tomahawk from the top.

In the meantime I’m slicing 9 irons pretty bad. I got myself into a terrible little pattern here.

Ill keep mapping in the mirror, maybe I can get a breakthrough.

Put a stick across your shoulders and film it.

Did the drill, then what it “feels like” when I try to swing

Yeah, maybe stop doing that neck thing. It’s worse now. Or maybe we didn’t see it before but it’s not nearly as bad with the stick.

So this video proves you can do it. So just do it, now. Every time. At whatever speed is needed.

I have 0 control of the neck thing (I did not do it on purpose). It does not happen when I have arms crossed across chest. Only when arms are involved.

I think something is happening in takeaway to block me.

I have been doing slow swings on a lot of balls, that’s why I’m so confused. I will continue tho at slower speeds. There’s no better way anyways.

First practice session after a lay-off from the normal, structured range sessions. (Got a house)

Ive been playing just enough to stay in some type of form. 

I was diligent this session and could only do “slowish backswings” to achieve what I think is success.


Goals: Steep shoulders


My level of understanding with my shoulder steepness is lower than other parts of my swing. Weird for something so simple.

In any case “I think” this was success. My shoulders did not re-route and become steeper during P4. So I think they were steep enough.

Today’s Session 9-9-20

Goals: Steep shoulders



I think I achieved success again since my only goal is steep shoulders.

Sadly, I’m hitting the ball like crap when I attempt steep shoulders- don’t know why yet. I will keep trying
