  1. Anybody with any experience hitting off the rear leg due to injury? I've had some left hip and knee pain recently making it hard to move to the left side. I realize this would not be the most efficient way to swing but playing is better than not. Tx.
  2. It actually looks like I get forward shaft lean... remarkable! My ball flight fades more than it draws now which is new. The strikes are much more solid and not as fat! I'm looking for swing thoughts to keep turning the hips during the down swing vs. stalling when they are square. Any other thoughts would be great!
  3. Thanks but is there a particular "grind" that consistently will give me what you referring to above? I'm being lazy I know.
  4. I could but I'd rather keep the loft as is. I "feel" that when chipping (I chip like I putt... whatever method that is) the bounce at address hits the ground before hitting the ball. This is my "feel" only.
  5. Is there a grind for wedges that at address, there is no bounce. I've finally learned to chip and can do it well with fariways to my pitching wedge. Once though there is some bounce added on the wedges though, I end up hitting the chips thin unless I am on a fluffy lie. Thanks in advance.
  6. Thank you anybody who sees this... I've hit the wall a little bit. My Evolver lessons have pointed out that I tend to start my swing with a close the face wrist roll... we've worked on everything else and overall, my swing feels better but this seems to be the crux of my issues. I'm being encouraged to try and get my wrists to more "upright" vs the the wrist-roll-close move you'll see in the DTL video. In doing so... the thought is I'll come down less shallow and at a steeper angle which will help my fats a little bit more (I know I still have a lot of wrist throwaway on the downswing). Thoughts? I've been doing this close the face wrist roll my whole life... so getting rid of it is going to be painful. When I do this now... I tend to shank it a lot.
  7. Still working on the pivot (not the standing/jumping part). I don't feel like I'm making progress. My left wrist is actually kind of flat now which is good. I'm still hitting it a little fat... frustrating. Thoughts?
  8. I've been Playing Golf for: 20 years or more My average score is: About 86 My typical ball flight is: Draw or a weak fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hook I'm waiting for my evolvr lesson to get back to me. It's a short pitch using my pivot and having my left wrist naturally stay flat on inline. I know the pivot is still stalling... I just don't know how to fix it. Thoughts?
  9. "To adjust playback speed if you're using the Chrome browser, click the Settings icon in the lower-right corner of the playback window, then click the Speed selector. Choose 0.25 for quarter-speed playback or 0.5 for half-speed."
  10. Grr, So I finally figured out how to watch vids in slow motion on Youtube... The pivot is still stalled! My contact with the ball happens when my belt buckle is facing the ball. I "thought" that my buckle was facing the target at impact... guess not. So frustrating!!!
  11. Posted this to evolvr today. Thought I'd post here as well. Thoughts good and bad are welcome. Chip/pitch trying to get the pivot correct with the clubhead staying behind the hands.
  12. iacas, I will... likely today or tomorrow... I'm just impatient... not a great golf temperament/trait to have.
  13. mvmac, thank you. i tried standing/jumping and right now it's just an odd feeling so i think it's going to take some time. i have a setup in the garage to practice chips/short pitches so i'll be working on it. i still feel though it's the arms/wrists. if i hold on to the "lag" i sometimes feel temporarily like i'm hitting more solid/compressed (i know this is not the way to go). but then i go back to slightly fat eventually. if i just relax the arms/wrists and try to bring them along for the pivot ride... it feels great for a bit... but then back to fat. i guess i'm just frustrated and am trying to figure out how long it's going to take to educate my hands OR am i missing something.
