My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

Recommended Posts

Today’s Session 4-24-21


  1. Cup lead wrist in backswing
  2. Flow into a steady trail leg (let’s actually sway back today)
  3. Steady head: do not let it go down and ahead (toward FO camera)

7i Swings

I know it’s a little flippy at impact. That is totally ok for now.

Not duck-hooking is way more important right now. I’d rather be able to close the face in downswing.

Goal 1: Cup lead wrist 


This looks good. I hope I’m on my way to ridding the duck-hooks

Goal 2: Flow into steady trail leg  

  • Ive been struggling with this piece lately
  • I felt that when I swayed 2”, the weight got outside my trail foot and I couldn’t keep that trail thigh steady
  • So I adjusted my setup a tad to get the trail leg wider at setup.

Well what do you know? Actually did it today! Hopefully the slight setup change will continue to work.

Goal 3: Steady head in backswing. Trail heel stays planted

Success! This was at pretty good speed also.

Here we go. These are the pictures from 10-27-18. Made a lot of changes. Most of it was very natural for me and it mostly how I used to swing. There’s a chance progress will fast...probably best that

NOTES FROM TODAYS LESSON PART ONE: BACKSWING STUFF Main Problems: 1. I was over-doing my back leg/hip pivot. My hip is so far to my lead side-I could not bump it toward the target

Posting photos from my lesson today. Worked on bowing my wrist in transition and throughout the downswing. My biggest goal is to bow  the wrist in transition while maintaining my lead arm depth.

Today’s Session 5-17-21

I had to gear up for a pretty big tournament (for me), so I’ve been playing and working on striping the ball. I hit the ball very well FWIW.

Now back to drills and structure.


  1. Flow (sway) into trail hip
  2. Turn into trail hip (internal rotation)
  3. Steady head (does not go down and forward in downswing)
  4. Let the arms swing wide
  5. Dont care about downswing today

  • I thought I flowed and turned into trail hip
  • head went a little forward


I know the top it cut off, but it was the best swing...so oh well.

I already started to sway forward and crunch into my lead foot here

  • the trail heel came up at this point, but is that ok at this point in the swing?
  • swing might’ve been a tad long, but I thought the structure seems ok. Prob not that bad.

Tournament details?

We even have topics for that.


Started with a 5 putt, but turned it around. I’ll find the topic for the better details lol

    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
    • 50, 54, 58 for me. The 54 sw is very easy to get out of the sand with, and often times rather be in sand then rough because of it. 58 for lobs over sand and elevated greens. I only use the 58 when I have to. 
    • Any other info on Covid booster shots?    Covid boosters in the fall? As calls grow for third shots, here's what you need to know Coronavirus vaccine booster shots will likely be needed in the fall, according to experts. Here's what we know so far.  
    • We got some rain last week, hopefully some here in the near future as well.
