  1. Update #2: Picked up a new driver over the weekend with a stiff flex shaft. Took it out on the range today and it seems to have cured my slice. Just about everything was straight. Had a couple draws and a couple fades mixed in there too. Maybe the stiff shaft legitemately helped - my SS clocked in around 105 mph & the driver used in the above vids was a regular flex but felt even softer than most regular flexes I've tried. Then again, maybe it was the placebo effect. All's I know is it felt good :) That all said, I won't sit here and pretend I have a good swing, I k
  2. @iacas Updated swings at full speed, using driver. Head-on and DTL views. Been some time since my original recording. Since then I have tried strengthening my grip significantly and try the "reverse motorcycle rev" swing thought but I still see myself cupping the left wrist at the top of my swing. I also see the shaft getting ridiculously steep to start the downswing but I struggle to shallow this out. There are times where I get it all together and when I've been able to straighten it out, it's carrying 275+ which feels good, but I struggle mightily with consistency. Irons ha
  3. Can't wait to hear how it goes! Good luck out there!
  4. I love your point here! Prior to this epiphany I was so frustrated because I took lessons, watched endless YouTube vids, read every thread on this forum as well as others, etc. just trying to figure out how the heck to hit that stupid ball. All of those lessons and instructions are incredibly important. You can't hit it good if you swing completely wrong, you have to have a general sense of form. My "the ball is in the way" theory is not to say that all instruction should be disregarded. Quite the opposite! It is exactly as you say, changing your train of thought from "hit this ball" to "swing
  5. Had a bit of an epiphany today. This may or may not be helpful to any of you but it has dramatically improved my ball striking with all clubs. This is my first year golfing. My background is over 20 years of baseball. Breaking that muscle memory to build a mechanically sound golf swing has been hell. I slice everything off the planet. Today I tried to relax my muscles as much as possible and just swing the club. No swing thoughts, no straining of any muscles, no manipulations, just freely swing it. Not "hit the ball" like I would in baseball. I changed my focus from the ball to my
  6. @mvmac thank you so much for taking the time to take a look at my swing and for the feedback. I really appreciate this! Your link to the Grip post was super helpful. I'm really looking forward to trying out that drill in that video too! Thanks again :)
  7. These are softer swings. Tried slowing things down to make better contact but still struggled.
