    My Swing (SemperFi)

    Yes I know. I have tried to keep the left arm straight while swinging. What technique do you use? Do you break the wrists earlier or just work on flexibility? I feel my arm just won't do that.

    Frustrated

    Yes. I usually practice 1 hour twice a week at GolfTec. I do mostly full swings as this is the only place I can right now and see ball flight and replay the swing. But, I do practice drills given to me by my instructor mostly at the Gym after I work out. They have a mirrors on all the walls in the group exercise room and i can see the correct position I should be in at each stage of the swing.The last thing we worked at was pushing the hips towards target or shifting weight to the left to shallow out the club. I did it well Monday and felt I had really turned a corner but as I stated in my original post when I returned Tuesday I could not seem to keep the clubhead behind my hands at parallel on the downswing. I probably hit 60 balls in 1 hour. Hmmmm, now that I see that thats about 1 a minute. 1. Keeping the clubhead behind the hands with club at parallel backswing and downswing. 2. Shoulder turn 3. Starting the downswing with the upper body not the hips. 4. Hands in front of the ball at impact. 5. Keeping head as still as possible 6. Keeping left wrist more bowed then cocked. 7. Drawing the ball. Thanks

    Frustrated

    Yes, thats a thought I've had as well. I don't just hit balls. After each swing I replay video and see if I'm hitting the key positions.

    Frustrated

    So, I have been taking Golf lessons at GolfTec since September and feel that I've stalled on shallowing the club. Well, Monday I was hitting the ball well, (was practicing for an hour), Looks like I finally turned a corner. I returned today and could not shallow the club to save my life. What a frustrating game. Thanks for listening.

    GolfTec Swing Model Questions

    I signed up for 1 year and 40 lessons. (Might have gone a little overboard) So far have gone every week for lessons and 1 hour practice afterword and then I use a practice bay another hour per week. I have taken about seven lessons and so far have it has been well worth it. I've learned a lot, most importantly, that I had little knowledge of what a real golf swing entailed. 9 more months to go. I may give some of my lessons to my daughter as my instructor offered. It also includes a fitting.

    1 Week in Scottsdale

    I am just reviving this thread. I will be in Scottsdale mid February 2019 at a Conference at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort. I will probably be without spouse as she has a heavy work week. Looking for a things a single guy could do in the afternoon as most of the events end at 12:00PM. Looking for recommended course I could play where I could keep my Kidney? Its pretty tough to find rates online.

    Anyone Just Accept Their Swing?

    I'm 60 and 4 years away from retirement. I spent quite a bit of time at the range this summer after a lesson in May. After posting my swing here and getting constructive feedback I signed up for a year of lessons at Golf Tec. I'm allready seeing an improvement. Its fun to be able to finally get lessons then practice and see how your improving and being able to self correct.

    How do you change the lie angle on clubs that are not forged? I always thought you were not able to do this.
