  1. Today’s Session 9-9-20 Goals: Steep shoulders I think I achieved success again since my only goal is steep shoulders. Sadly, I’m hitting the ball like crap when I attempt steep shoulders- don’t know why yet. I will keep trying
  2. Nooooooo! I am sad. Maybe he should’ve had the knee surgery last fall....I hope he gets his body right again
  3. A point based system? What the heck. I thought the players voted on this?! No me gusta
  4. I only focus on what I can control. When I feel the nerves coming on, I repeat a mantra to myself over and over. It can be up to 50 times if it’s not my turn for a while Head down, down the line Head down, down the line etc. (down the line means to roll the ball down my imaginary target line.) Anyway, at this point I’m focused only on doing an action- both help me hit a good putt
  5. Could you imagine winning the FedEx Cup / Tournament of Champions and losing the #1 Word Ranking? That would be terrible for the FedEx Cup imo. I don’t think FedEx would be very happy about that
  6. Someone else got credit for it in a book I’m currently listening to. FWIW
  7. First practice session after a lay-off from the normal, structured range sessions. (Got a house) Ive been playing just enough to stay in some type of form. I was diligent this session and could only do “slowish backswings” to achieve what I think is success. Goals: Steep shoulders My level of understanding with my shoulder steepness is lower than other parts of my swing. Weird for something so simple. In any case “I think” this was success. My shoulders did not re-route and become steeper during P4. So I think they were steep enough.
  8. I have 0 control of the neck thing (I did not do it on purpose). It does not happen when I have arms crossed across chest. Only when arms are involved. I think something is happening in takeaway to block me. I have been doing slow swings on a lot of balls, that’s why I’m so confused. I will continue tho at slower speeds. There’s no better way anyways.
  9. Did the drill, then what it “feels like” when I try to swing
  10. Today’s Session 8-17-20 Ive been practicing getting my shoulders steep, but haven’t had any success so I haven’t posted. 8i Swings Im trying everything I know how to get them steep. I’m trying to left bend hard, but my neck just twists early. I feel like I’m blocking myself someway but I can’t figure it out. Sometimes I can get really steep, but there is no width, and I just tomahawk from the top. In the meantime I’m slicing 9 irons pretty bad. I got myself into a terrible little pattern here. Ill keep mapping in the mirror, maybe I can get a breakthrough.
  11. I understand the dimension part. The steep shoulders part Do you mean that the shoulders must be steep by the time I get to P4? Or do you mean something else? I’m understanding it as- “make sure shoulders are steeper in backswing (takeaway is not the problem)” I’m not trying to be a pain, just making sure I understand the concept so I can practice correctly
  12. This is what I was trying to say the entire time
  13. He also has sponsors. He is paid to represent their product. Since his pay is not 100% based off of his golf scores, I would argue he has at least 2 jobs- Golfer and Brand Representative. My only thought is that reporters are writing articles telling him to cut it out and I bet he tones it down a lot. My comment “it doesn’t happen again” was taken in its most literal form. Im going with, tones down using the f word into hot mic’s. I will quantify by saying less than 3 times the rest of the year. Again, I don’t care that he says it. I just think he will not do it as much in the future due to the heat he is catching from sports writers
  14. I voted yes, although it doesn’t bother me. IMO it is his job. I do not yell “f***” during work meetings or conference calls, or when patients can hear me. Its his job, and it’s not a good look. He’s a good dude, and he’s getting some flack for it. I bet it doesn’t happen again.
  15. I got better (non-video) results with a deeper takeaway. However, I thought I was only masking a problem. I’ll do some mapping and make “being deeper >P4-P6 my priority” Thanks!
