I played around with some different feels tonight.  These swings were all about contact.  Ball first felt good, but the whole operation felt more "whippy". 

Forgive the jammies and the slightly-off angles 😀  Is there anything so bad here that I shouldn't pursue it over the stock swing?  The contact felt night and day.

Self-isolating has freed up some practice time.  Invested in a SkyTrak, and I've been having a blast.  Posting today's lunch time swings.  Hoping the quality is better this time around - open to feedback on that.

Hitting it more consistently, but still short.  This session averaged 128 ball speed, 17.4 launch, 3400 backspin for 201 carry and 220 total.  A bit pully with some right to left (dispersion attached).

Very cool and looks good.  Can you link to this product?

Also, is there anything specific you were working on with this practice?

It really is a lot of fun - I've learned a ton about my ball flight.  It's an investment, but it's been great for my mental health being able to sneak downstairs and hit some shots.  skytrakgolf.com

Can't say I was working on anything in particular.  I'm a total hack, so my biggest goal is establishing some consistency in my "stock shots", getting a better understanding of my gapping, and then eventually try to add some speed so I can get it out there better.

Done reading to the kids for the night and having a careful look.

Seems like when I’m back to hands parallel I’m leaning forward, front leg too bent, hands caught behind.  Fair diagnosis?

Your grip is very weak and palmy. Take a look at this thread on the grip:

The other thing I would look at right now is the way you take the club back in the backswing. You roll your hands over and fan the clubface wide open, then cup your left wrist as you take it to the top, which causes you to get the clubface closed in the downswing by casting and flip/rolling the hands through impact.

First I'd fix the backswing. The club gets behind you and then it gets steep at the top. This results in a number of compensations on the downswing, making hitting the ball more inconsistent. Just try to keep the club head more in front of you during the backswing. Regarding your analysis against Justin Thomas, the diagnosis is a slide. This is pretty common for most amateurs. You can even see some very good ball strikers do this. Just watch Adam Scott. The USGA recommends not to slide. I don't think it's that bad at all

Really appreciate the feedback, @billchao & @Konsta!

Simplifying things a bit for myself by bumping down to the 7 iron.  Spent some time at lunch today working on what you guys suggested.

Tried getting my left hand over grip more.  In terms of the backswing, I tried a different move below.  For the life of me, I felt like I had the club face pointing down on takeaway... is that still too open at parallel?  Still looking cupped at the time, isn't it?

The ball is still pully with curve (dispersion attached), but carrying 10 to 15 yards longer than 2 days ago. So you guys are good at this! :-D

102 ball speed, launching 20*, 5000 rpm, carrying 145

For the record - My goal is to improve... so if things break down for a little while, so be it. 🙂

I highly recommend watching the video from Day 1 of the 30 day COVID-19 challenge, it goes over exactly what you are working on here and gives a couple drills that will likely help with that 7 iron positioning

I agree, there is some good stuff in the COVID-19 Practice Plan Challenge. 

Day 1 should help you. Day 20 will be good to sync up your lower and upper body better earlier in the swing.

    • My wife told me to grow the f*** up. Lol. I think a $5 per person net skins pot always a great idea. Just right IMO. Two- man blind draw, Foursome high-low.. all net.
    • So yesterday I tried it. I played from 6280 yds. I haven't done this before. I usually play 5400 - 5700. So why? Because at the driving range some guy had a GC2 and got my driver carry at 214 yds. which with rollout should be around 230. But that's when I get into a groove. Usually I'll have to say it's around 200 carry because of mishitting the ball. But I had to try it. The course is rated 76.5/129. The front 9 was a dumpster fire. I'd locked myself out of my house and long story short, as a result I didn't get to the course but 2 minutes before my tee time. No warm up. No putting. Straight to the first hole and straight to the first duff. It took me 6 holes to warm up - I'm 68. I need to hit about 20 balls to loosen my back. Front 9 ended with a double bogey and a 58. Stopped for a hot dog and two Tylenol.  Back 9. I was determined to play better. I'd been going for pars on the front 9. I decided to play for bogeys. Stress-free back 9. I shot 45. One GIR. 18 putts. 4/6 Fwys. I left myself shots I liked - 40 to 70 yd. pitches with my 54 wedge. But this is playing for bogeys and not for pars. Some of the par 4s, I just couldn't reach in regulation. Well, I'd have to take the chance of a 7W landing and holding or not landing in a bunker so I just chose to lay up and hit a pitch that I knew I could get to about 9 feet from the hole. My 54 is my bread and butter. 9 straight bogeys.  So 103, but I don't even want to think about the front 9. Just the 45 on the back 9. I don't know if I'm going to do this again. I don't see breaking 90 from that length being possible. Highlights of the round  4th hole: Chipped in to save par. Always read the green when you chip.  12th hole: Lousy lie with the ball way above my feet on the fairway, choked down on a 7i and put it dead center of the fairway on the approach just short of the green. The shot was exactly as planned. The hole has "hell" to the left, two big bunkers in the front, and "more hell" if you go long.  16th hole: Holed out a 35 foot putt to save bogey. 
    • Yeah, but his eye wasn’t getting any better. Six over for the day and shooting two under the last eight holes. If he thought he had a shot and the eye wasn’t bad enough, he would probably have tried. I don’t think people can do the Tiger blaming on the WD.
    • At the point he WD he could not know he would miss the cut. Unfortunate but 6 over with plenty of holes left he could have made the cut.
