  1. I stopped thinking about anything but making solid contact when im playing. Swing tuning belongs on the range, the course is for playing golf
  2. Yes. I am shooting in the mid 80s now consistently when breaking 90 was my goal last summer. Nothing under 82 yet tho. I went from playing 0-10 times a year to around 30 rounds last year and maybe 60 this year. So its expected but nice to see the hard work pay off. What a game!
  3. Same shaft. EF blue 6.0 My theory is that im very much a feel player and able to feel the weight in the toe and react by turning it over a little more aggressively. Going to play 18 with it tomorrow. We'll see
  4. Hey all. I got fitted for a new m5. The fitter didn't touch the stock weighting. When my club came in, i was fighting a little bit of a strong fade. I moved the weight to the draw bias... And i couldn't stop slicing. I moved it to the fade side, and hit 2 dozen balls dead straight. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me but assuming maybe i feel the extra weight in the toe and can feel it turn over? Can someone smarter than me explain
  5. This thread has been very helpful. Thanks for asking this question OP and thanks @iacas and others for all the discussion/explanation
  6. For me. I've had a lot of bad lessons because the instructor's focused on the wrong parts of my swing. Telling me to fix my club path 8 million times never did anything, no matter how hard I tried and practiced. Having me change my backswing fixed most of my path problems without ever thinking about downswing path. I also think some students lack the strength and flexibility required but maybe don't know it. My fingers in my left hand were weak, it absolutely had a large affect on my position at the top of my backswing and likely all the other positions I needed to get into. Until I got them stronger (and my core stronger), I couldn't make as good of a golf swing as I do now
  7. Thanks for the replies. I've been doing the shoulder turn drill and focusing on keeping from sliding away from the ball in the backswing. It's been very helpful. I've also been working to keep from being too inside on my backswing and keeping the club closed during the backswing. Took some more videos this morning from down the line view.
  8. Thanks for the comment. I did notice how far laterally I was moving. I know that when I think to "load the back leg" on my backswing I have much better results. Assuming that leads to less sway. I had already played 18 and hit about 100 balls when this video was taken, so not sure if this is always my problem or one that happens when I get a bit more tired. I will try to get a video this weekend when I am fresh out there. Regardless, the wall drill mentioned in your thread seems very helpful for flexibility, form, and core strength. Happy to hear any other comments
