Today’s Session 10-17-20

First session after lesson is always the worst / hardest. I worked on 3 parts:

  1. Trail leg/ hip
  2. Shorter backswing 
  3. Head/ neck not twisting every which way

I was diligent with my session and switched what I was working on every 10-20 balls


Swings:

1. Wide backswing with a little thought on legs for the 2 vids below

 

 


2. Steady head with a little thought on legs


3.  Legs 


The session was not overly successful.

It is quite hard to identify success in the lower body. I need to buy a shin pad or something for my knee so I can tell where it is facing during the swing.

 I was getting the club more outside and steep on takeaway than this. I must stay wider.

I started hitting a lot of shanks and slices. I need to be careful not to make that a pattern, there was not enough mental energy to Bow wrist in downswing.

Hopefully better tomorrow

We talked about this. Success is not something that happens, it's something you make happen. Because you can always go shorter, slower, whatever.

Today’s Session 10-21-31

GOALS

  1. Obtain success with trail hip internal rotation

I was not able to obtain success with upper and lower body together even in my  “mapping practice” at home.

So I need to get success with the leg piece- then slowly merge the 2 pieces.

Swings focusing only on tail hip.


I think I obtained success with the trail hip priority piece. Getting a baseline for what success is was important.

Last session on left, today on right (they are completely different clothes btw!)

The differences as far as I can tell

  • Trail knee facing way more “forward”
  • trail quad facing more forward
  • trail leg more bent 
  • I think there is a big difference in the way the hips are bent, but I don’t know exactly what it is. The good picture (right) seems like I am more “squatty”

NOTE: I felt like I was squatting and “lifting my arms”. Felt like I was not making a nice, big shoulder turn into/ against my trail leg (but shoulders look like they are turning on video?)

At P4- I was not feeling enough or hardly any pressure in my trail groin or just above trail hip. I was not loading quite right.

Overall, better session. Progress is tough in the beginning.

You could turn a little bit more, and let the right hip go up a tiny bit more, but overall, A here today. Nice.

And take that "A" as far more important - when I say a "little" bit above, I mean a LITTLE bit. Barely noticeable.

That makes sense, as soon as I did that, I felt both pressure points. Ty

    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
    • Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.
    • My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃. Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.   Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.
    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
