  1. Flying elbow

    Good stuff Marty. I was looking for a reply like this. I am excited to practice with it tomorrow. thx
  2. Flying elbow

    Thanks, Buckeyebowman. Just returning it is a tricky move for me. Getting a flatter backswing sounds good. What are some good ways to achieve this? Swing more around? Anything else? Thx for the help. SG. Hi Bill, Thx for the comments. Yes, working on my pivot helped. Either moving my shoulder/hips at the same time on the bs or just turn my chest. My ball striking has improved. However, I guess were always looking to improve more. Agreed, comparing Nicklaus to the average hack wouldn't be a useful comparison. But, it's a common reply when someone brings this topic up. Next is Freddy and Eamonn Darcy, who has taken this to an extreme. Cheers SG StefanUrkel, On the right hand, would stronger or weaker help? Yes, I am completing my turn. Probably, more like overswinging as the flying elbow allows you to keep going. SG
  3. Flying elbow

    Can someone tell me how to properly rotate/hinge my wrists and elbows to avoid the dreaded flying elbow? Thx SG
  4. Older body, wider stance. Seems to be working.

    I've had a friend recommend reading the book play better golf for seniors (Mike Adams & TJ Tomasi). He swears this is a good swing based on a lack of flexibilty and pain. It didn't do much for me. But, I plan to read and try it again. You can get it on Amazon for less that 10 bucks it may even be in your local library.
  5. massage envy streto stretching

    Bump. Now, I've noticed there's another place doing the same thing called the Stretch Zone. anyone?
  6. MG Senior Golf Ball

    Good points, NJpatbee. As it turned out, MG sent me a ball to try. It was a hot and firm ball. But, no different than a super hot by Callaway. It does have a nice yellow color.
  7. massage envy streto stretching

    Anyone try massage envy streto stretching for low back pain? PGA endorsed. Results? SG
  8. My Swing (Sandhills Golfe)

    Will do. Getting the hips turning has always been a challenge.
  9. My Swing (Sandhills Golfe)

    I tried this today with no success. I realize these things can take months and I would do better with a lesson. But, my biggest issue is the centered swing is a killer on my bad lower back.
  10. My Swing (Sandhills Golfe)

    Thanks
  11. My Swing (Sandhills Golfe)

    Thanks, iacas. I am using a light weight practice ball. Either way, the swing would look the same. I am trying to turn, using my chest on the way back. Do you have any drills or suggestions to make a full turn? I noticed the flipping too. Thanks, for adding the lines. Hopefully, that gets cleared up with a better turn. Thanks, again SG

    iacas, Thanks for taking a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgcAmwpYM4Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2PFa2APX0M
  14. My Swing (Sandhills Golfe)

    I'm playing pretty well. But, feel I can still improve on my ball striking consistency. Can anyone make any suggestions to keep the right elbow from flying. My bad back has been acting up. I don't think that is helping me, Cheers SG
  15. Issues with getting the hips moving in the backswing

    Sorry, guys. I should have said, "I have been starting the swing with the lead shouder/side in combination of turning the right hip". It feels completely different since there's no resistence in the backswing. But, the hips are moving. Do I have to get used to this and just synch up the timing of the backswing better? Thanks, SG.
