  1. That makes sense, as soon as I did that, I felt both pressure points. Ty
  2. Lol it’s no big deal to me. I like golf trips and I get to go on my fair share. Leave me out if you have too many ppl, count me in if you need me Just let me know by Feb so I can put in for the vacation days or not
  3. I can do the 4 days of the trip. I wont be able to do any days on the way out if that makes sense.
  4. Today’s Session 10-21-31 GOALS Obtain success with trail hip internal rotation I was not able to obtain success with upper and lower body together even in my “mapping practice” at home. So I need to get success with the leg piece- then slowly merge the 2 pieces. Swings focusing only on tail hip. I think I obtained success with the trail hip priority piece. Getting a baseline for what success is was important. Last session on left, today on right (they are completely different clothes btw!) The differences as far as I can tell Trail knee facing way more “forward” trail quad facing more forward trail leg more bent I think there is a big difference in the way the hips are bent, but I don’t know exactly what it is. The good picture (right) seems like I am more “squatty” NOTE: I felt like I was squatting and “lifting my arms”. Felt like I was not making a nice, big shoulder turn into/ against my trail leg (but shoulders look like they are turning on video?) At P4- I was not feeling enough or hardly any pressure in my trail groin or just above trail hip. I was not loading quite right. Overall, better session. Progress is tough in the beginning.
  5. Thanks! I can go. We all put in for our vacations at the beginning of the year (healthcare vacation days can be annoying). I can def get the time off. Just need to know the dates by like February, no hurry on them.
  6. Estimated total cost not including travel and food? Can be a wide range
  7. Today’s Session 10-17-20 First session after lesson is always the worst / hardest. I worked on 3 parts: Trail leg/ hip Shorter backswing Head/ neck not twisting every which way I was diligent with my session and switched what I was working on every 10-20 balls Swings: 1. Wide backswing with a little thought on legs for the 2 vids below 2. Steady head with a little thought on legs 3. Legs The session was not overly successful. It is quite hard to identify success in the lower body. I need to buy a shin pad or something for my knee so I can tell where it is facing during the swing. I was getting the club more outside and steep on takeaway than this. I must stay wider. I started hitting a lot of shanks and slices. I need to be careful not to make that a pattern, there was not enough mental energy to Bow wrist in downswing. Hopefully better tomorrow
  8. Lesson 10-14-20 3 main parts Trail leg / hip Backswing length Head turn 1. Trail leg/ hip PROBLEM: I was over rotating my trail hip/leg by a lot. I created no resistance (feeling) and kept turning. Make trail foot square (not flared out) Trail knee faces target more during backswing (FO) Trail knee feels like it turns inwards (toward target) as I turn my shoulders away. This is a little easy to “fake” so I must: feel tension in trail groin and could feel tension above trail hip. Turn upper body away during backswing -no “lifting” the club (feeling) 2. Backswing Length (too long) Vertical line = farthest point the club handle travelled from the target Horizontal line = how far the handle moved back towards the target during the backswing. The feel- do not let club move toward target in backswing. Only take club away from target, then backswing is over. (Feels like Finau swing) The first part of the lesson helps with this a lot. I feel very loaded and the backswing feels like it should end here. Also, the shoulder tilt looks great, very happy with this. 3. Head and neck tilt/turn/kink Keep right eye below left eye during takeaway. I must not watch the club go back. Keep eyes in front of ball. Summary / notes: This lesson went really well, all 3 things work well with each other. I think I can really get my backswing in order with this. I didn’t want to get a lesson mid- season and have to work through new things...I should’ve gotten this lesson earlier. -Make sure to hit ball hard on downswing -Bow wrist and swing to first base during downswing
  9. Ya, I hit the ball better the first day to be honest. my lag putts weren’t bad. my 3 footers came off dead left on day one. Wasn’t overly nervous, kept my head down and stroked up my line like I did all summer- day 1 was just awful with short putts. This site (@iacas) has helped me a ton with my ball striking so much over the last few years. I almost can’t wait to shut it down and start working on my swing again for next year
  10. Talked about our little club championship in the last post. Finished 6th (11 golfers were good enough to win) -82 (7 3putts) -71 (bounces went my way) i tried my best on every shot. Did not embarrass myself
  11. No, that problem has largely vanished. Can still rear it’s head on courses I don’t really know yet (looking in wrong spot) However, the article you attached made better arguments than my actual arguments
  12. Call me a cicada, cuz I’m gonna climb up a tree and scream! I want my 5 minutes!!! I don’t have spotters I don’t have practice rounds or caddies to help I don’t even lose many balls anymore 5 min side won 20-14, is that a lot based on a survey of 36. Is that enough of a sample size? (I’m not overly serious as I hit the ball much better than before. I do however have a problem with my ball disappearing right off the fairway)
  13. You are in good company 😛. Take it as a good omen
