    Within 50 yds ....

    20-30 yards is a chip shot and that makes sense to bump and run.

    Sometimes too many options can mess you up too. On the courses I play, if you can hit a wedge and have it stop reliably, that's the best bet. Everything else is making up for not being able to hit a wedge properly. Where I play this is exactly the case. You really want the ball to plunk down as close as you can get it.

    My Swing (Lihu)

    Hi Everyone, Still going to play golf, do my daily challenge and play my once a week game. I’ll pop in every now and then. Getting too busy at work and my other activities. Thanks for all the help this last year! Loving my Flightscope Mevo! Worth every penny! Lihu
  4. Hey All, I’m still doing the Swing practice daily and practicing at the range with a weekly game, but I’ll probably not be posting so much here for a while. 198 pounds!
  5. Day 1- back on the daily training. . . 3 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Using a swing sequencing version 3 club simulator with a swing speed radar to do the above. will be using this from now on with or without SS monitor. Morning weight 200.6
  6. More roller and Kettle, and exercise cycle. Weight was surprisingly still under 200 even with all the rich food in Boston. Used the exercise bicycle for about 20 minutes on the mid setting. Eating grilled vegetables and less carbohydrates. Got weight down to 199. Stuck in Boston for another two days due to the bad weather flight cancellations. My bosses are happy with that though.

    Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Tiger used the same steel shafted clubs to beat everyone in the beginning...
  9. Went to the fitness center to do some cardio and Golf specific workout. Did roller work and some Kettleball.
  10. In the airport, layover waiting to go to a Boston. Doing some air golf swings then a show came on about getting back in shape for golf...
  11. 10 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Using a swing sequencing version 3 club simulator with a swing speed radar to do the above. will be using this from now on with or without SS monitor. Went to Altadena driving range with no clubs. Found an old circa 1940s Wilson Blade. Terrible club. Hit a small bucket on the range then played a couple holes with it. I am so glad that I have those Ping i20s! Shot 2 over on 2 holes par 4 467 yards and par 4 459 yards uphill (par 5 for ladies and seniors). If you miss the 1/128” sweet spot you lose yardage and although the shots went in the correct direction it went very low. My tee shots were fine. Short game and putting with it sucked too... Morning weight 197.2 Going to Boston today. So, no more driving range for a couple weeks.

    Interesting, I suppose it makes sense that different people have different feels then. Possibly different for even for different types of swings as well?

    My Swing (JonMA1)

    Agree with Marty. I’d also add that the Swing is not really a pulling feeling. It’s more of a throwing action. Your previous thoughts were more correct? You look really tense too! If you can think of it as a throwing action with your hands past your rear thigh or something that might help you from looking and possibly feeling really tense? Not relaxed, but like your body and arms are really loose at the lead arm shoulders and throwing with your trail arm at the right time to max your speed? As if you are throwing a 50 pound bag of cement or something?
