  1. For #1 I put my head against a wall and just focused on mocking my takeaway without moving my head. I placed my Gatorade bottle on the ground as well during some swings and tried to focus on not seeing the front or back of it. On the range I just really kept the thought in my mind and it translated well to my swing. For #2 I got the office chair and focused on pushing it away with my hips. I don't have that half moon squishy ball but I used a hardened foam ball under my right foot to feel it compress during swings. I also placed a tee in front of my ball and focused on trying to push the tee away after contact with the golf ball. I want to keep focusing on 1 & 2 because controlling my low point is something I have a problem with and it's definitely helping! I'll try to correct my camera angles next video session!
  2. Alright so I got some more swing vids. Got a side and frontal this time. I had a very good practice session and had the best contact with my irons that I've had in months. I watched and really focused on Keys 1&2 and it helped tons. The rear view shot came out a little left but felt really good. The frontal view shot flew very straight with similar distance.
  3. Wow... literally changed my swing for the better today. The thought of keeping my right hand on top really paid off (I'm a lefty). I feel like it really helps me keep my hands at a good impact position in the aspect of forward shaft lean. I was having a hard time with thin shots due to weight transfer and flipping my hands. So I watched Key 2 a lot and threw this little thought in and was hitting better than I have in weeks today at the range. Thanks for the tip!
  4. Multiple people have mentioned hitting irons off of a tee. I'm curious how to translate that to hitting off grass? I have a problem hitting thin and although I think that drill could help my contact, I think after removing the tee, it might be hard to adjust to the loss of the height seeing as I'm prone to hit the upper half of the ball anyways.
  5. I think this is what I need to start doing. I have a habit of losing focus during a round and my immediate reaction is panic. The second reaction is, change something! ??‍♂️ Then when I give up, I hit a good shot that gives me hope I fixed something. Slowing down and hitting punches and 3/4 shots may be the key to getting more sound mechanics when I'm struggling.
  6. It is for sure! Nothing I would rather do!
  7. Those dock snook can be frustrating as heck haha on the other hand though, Muskie is on the bucket list of fish I want to catch! Would love to get a big one from the yak!
  8. Fishing is my true passion with golf at a close second. I inshore kayak fish along the nature coast of Florida. Love some snook fishing and redfish fishing!
  9. I have the same movement. My head moves posteriorly (in anatomical terms) a few inches at impact. Wonder if it is contributing to my thin shots? I just noticed I do this yesterday when I watched some video. I'll probably try the wall technique to try and keep my head in the same position.
  10. I've been Playing Golf for: On and off for 8 years My current handicap index or average score is: 87-92 My typical ball flight is: Driver: High and straight with occasional hook. Iron: Low, Draw. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Thin iron shots. Videos: Thos thin shot has been haunting me for weeks now. The video was rather last minute and on my iPhone 7. I'll start getting better video and the other angle with my GoPro. My biggest issue for a while now is inconsistent iron contact. I'll hit 1 crisp shot for every 5 thin shots with an occasional fat shot. Something I noticed after watching the video is my head moves backwards at impact a couple inches. I think I'm making a slight flipping move at contact as well trying to get my ball "up." I noticed I had my irons buried in my palm as well so hopefully getting my grip back in my "fingers" will help. Any criticism is welcome! My driver swing feels much more comfortable lately and I've been hitting it well. I don't get a ton of distance because if I swing at full speed, I'll slice it away. As I said above, I'll try to get better quality and different angles but this is a start!
  11. Either way, that's a nice strike right there! Dead center with some spin!
  12. Yesterday I hit a tee shot super array and literally had my back foot slip about 6 inches on the down swing. It was a little wet but not that wet. I never flip my footjoys over and look at my cleats so I immediately did after the shot and sure enough, they were almost gone. Well I had some extras I bought when I got the cleats so I changed them and WOW! There's no telling how long I've been slipping on shots because I'm hitting the driver pretty well now that I have that little bit of traction! Wondering if anyone else has had that slipping action hurt their game or if its all in my head and I'm just more confident with new spikes on?
