  1. Yes it looked horrible and this isn't even the worst video. I got shallow at the top, but then it went vertical almost immediately. And I'd understand it if I at least could hit the ball with my "corrections" but I couldn't hit it for the life of me. There was one thing that could be off though - the range was pretty bad because they had a tournament going on and everyone warmed up before I got there so I couldn't set the ball perfectly so I might have been standing too close to the ball. This is getting frustrating as I've been working on my full swing for the past 2 years but I hardly see any score improvement. I mean when I compare my first video in this topic and my last one (without the bag) I like the swing much better, but other than a bit of distance there is just no consistency for me.
  2. @iacas ok so this was really hard to setup and do. This was my best attempt of about 10 recorded tries. I did it at home with a chair to practice but it was much easier without a ball to hit. And I couldn’t hit a 7 iron for the life of me today afterwards 😢
  3. @iacas how is this change looking? I’m still goat humping but I really like how the top of my backswing looks in these two videos. I feel like this backswing sets me up in a very good position, and basically I’ve been working on that and the beginning of the downswing today. My hips still only go to parallel and then stop and wait for the club but my focus now (as it has been for quite some time) is the backswing and the start of the downswing.
  4. I am working on that since last August. And it starts with the hips.
  5. Yeah I’ve been trying to keep it shallower for a while now but I’m just not able to start the downswing with the hips and keep rotating while hitting the ball. For example here is my practice swing and my real swing, literally 10 seconds apart. I know the practice swing isn’t ideal but it’s a hell of a lot better looking than my hitting the ball swing. A soon to be pro suggested the “feel” that I “release” the club faster and it has helped, because it’s not casting the club but rather the feeling that I don’t have to tighten my wrist for so long. So I can swing my hands faster and let the club catch up later. I think it’s all in the hips and shoulders for me right now. The backswing and the top of the swing in my practice swing are pretty much where I want to be. I might still over rotate on my actual swing but it’s improved a lot. Then if I start the downswing with my hips I don’t hit the ball correctly and I always stop the rotation and prematurely extend instead of rotating till my hips are open. This has been a really difficult change for me as I seem to grasp what I want to do and I am able to do it without the ball but put a ball in front of me and I’m duffing it all over.
  6. Two videos. Both DTL both 7 iron. I really like the new balance I have. And I get much more depth in my swing. And that’s a big change from 2 months ago. Now I got to keep at this and then figure out how to get more forward shaft lean at impact. My guess is that if I can do that it will also eliminate or at least reduce the early extension. Because my balls fly extremely high right now. And I’m not flipping...
  7. Yes. My point was that Brooks could swing much faster if he took more of a baseball approach to the hit - lift his left leg and swing back more. But that’s not in the interest of his wallet.
  8. “That’s all I got” - using his swing. Coiling back even more and further back would add speed. But probably took a dramatic toll on his accuracy.
  9. The last couple of days I was working on my hip rotation in the backswing. Staying centered and feeling like I want to push my pelvis into my right leg. It feels wierd but in a good way. That also helps me to start the downswing more with my hips and not going on my toes too soon. I’m still over the top though. Oh and I’ve shifted my weight more on my heels. Not that it’s on my heels now, but I was way too much on my toes before so now I feel much more in balance. No video today because there isn’t such a big difference but more a note to myself so I can go back and remember what was working in a few months.
  10. If you read the book Every shot counts you see that in the years he was dominating he was the best in approach shots by a wide margin. So that was the biggest part of his success. His driving was second if I recall correctly.
  11. I can hit anything from a hook to a slice and all the variations in between. Just not when I want them...🤣
  12. Ok two new videos. While I kinda like how I think the swing improved, the results simply aren’t there. The problem is that last summer I was battling a constant fade/slice, but I could play with that, my rounds constantly breaking 100. Now I just don’t know where the ball will go. My swing pattern includes everything from a hook to a slice, even though a slice is mostly the result of sockets (that I now hit waaay too often, and I never had a problem with that in the past. It’s hard to play golf when your shot zone includes both of the adjacent fairways with an 8 iron... Also something I’ve noticed is that I often hit the ball fat, so that is something that is in dire need of fixing. I did see in improvement in my putting and short game even without much practice, just by improving my mental game - taking a bit more time to read the green, even on chips, and really focusing on holing out every putt and chip, while in the past my thought was always just get it near even with 10’ putts. So while my last round still had 2 3 putts (pretty fast greens), it also had 4 1 putts.
  13. 102. Was late, only hit about 20 shots on the range and couldn’t hit a 7 iron on the range for the life of me. Then I started with a birdie on a 400 yard par 4... if I could get rid of the 3-4 blowup holes I could break 90... I had two 9s on my scorecard today... Did hit my longest ingame drive though 265 yards, and I had 4 1 putts vs 2 3 putts and this is a course known for its fast greens.
  14. The screenshot you took is from December. This is last week (as the above)
  15. Ok then I might not be as steep as I thought. But I still can’t come from the inside on most shots even though I get a draw here and there.
