    Thanks! Its nice to get instruction in the right order; but it’s really the constant feedback that sets you guys apart. Finding good instruction is a lot harder than it should be. Im lucky I found this site

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    During my session today, my main focus was bowing my wrist thoughout the downswing and through-swing. Secondary focus was remaining deep in transition. 3 videos from beginning middle and end of session respectfully. One of my first swings of the session: Pause at the top drill to make sure I was staying deep in transition. Finally, a swing without a pause where I bow throughout the through-swing while keeping depth in transition. I check my wrist angle after the swing has completed. I believe this session was successful. I had some trouble making contact at times and hit some fat shots...not a concern now, just a note.

    Should divots be considered ground under repair?

    Did Hogan ever lay up to a different place rather than “collection areas” on par 5’s or aim a tad different day to day to avoid divots or landing in his own? Our game moves the ball in our own fairway...it isn’t due to divots, but rather the condition of the course. I did prefer high school golf where we played it down everywhere. It feels more real to me

    I had a practice session today. It was not a success. I had a hard time maintaining my lead arm depth in the downswing and I don’t know if I had enough bowing of my wrist throughout the downswing...but I doubt it. I have one source of confusion, and that is, “what is success in the follow through?” That being said, this was my first session since my lesson. I will do my slow motion work this week and have another session on Wed or Thurs. Vids are earliest to latest in session.
  5. I continue to play ProV’s for durability reasons. Other premium balls, especially Taylormade, would quickly wear out on me. I’m very interested in the Bridgestone balls (because of Tiger and Bryson-I have no shame). Anyone have input on ProV vs others?

    Posting photos from my lesson today. Worked on bowing my wrist in transition and throughout the downswing. My biggest goal is to bow the wrist in transition while maintaining my lead arm depth. The second thing we worked on was the club not working left through impact, wrists not breaking down, maintaining bowed wrist through impact.
  7. There’s a term, Volkswagen- good around town but falls apart on the road. Not being rude, that’s what the older guys called me when I was young and thought I was getting good lol. Don’t worry, you’ll adjust your game to the new course, and then be a better golfer than before!

    🐵 is accurate, cuz that’s what I felt like. I was doing my drill over and over while a little girl was hitting real shots in the adjacent bay. Just so there’s no confusion; when I said, “I left it alone like I was told”. I was told I wasn’t ready for it, so I didn’t do it or worry about it.

    @iacas @mvmac Thanks guys, and I had a feeling bowing in the downswing was the wrist thing, but I’ve never done that before and left it alone like I was told. I’ll work on getting my backswing and lifting better before Saturday (without losing my depth in transition). Thanks again!

    This is from my practice today. The only things I worried about were left arm depth at A-5 and swinging out to the right. Swings from beginning, middle, end of session. I feel maxed out on what I’m trying to do. So if it’s not right, I need to go about it a different way. (As in giving my body different commands). My backswing looks gross to me, but I’m not focusing on that currently.
  11. I played Twisted Gun when I was a jr. The top of a mountain was cut off (old mining mountain) and it resembled linx golf. Fescue, tiny flag sticks due to the wind up there, and 9/18 shared a green. Nicest/coolest course I’ve ever played. It was near the WV/Kentucky boarder.

    Yep. Just working on getting more. And that’s good. I’d prefer to be on the same page, wasting time is not fun

    @iacas Thanks. I’ll work on getting more left arm depth at a-5. those little swings are all I’m doing.

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    After a week of being injured and then getting new bedroom floors, I was able to make it to a heated driving range and hit real golf balls. My feels... In order to not come over the top. I felt like the club hitched down behind me (like if I pretended to be Rory) as I transitioned my weight to my front foot (pushed weight hard, down, and forward). I also tried to swing out to the right. Really tried to swing on a right facing hula hoop. Setting up the golf balls around me really helped.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    Oh my examples. Hogan, jack, tiger, DJ, Koepka, Bubba...my age dictates my experience so a lot of younger guys on my list.
