  1. Setup looks good, backswing needs work, keep everything a little taller on the way to the top. Good luck
  2. I agree with you that ball striking is so critical, totally agree. Putting is critical as well, there are a lot of golfers out there who confirm that working hard on their short game yields great results, so why hand waive that stuff and keep pointing to reading material.
  3. When you are staring at a 7 footer within striking distance of winning an event, the statistics don't matter, you need to make the putt.
  4. In this thread we can't talk about individual cases, nevermind golf is an individual sport, just focus on cherry picked studies.
  5. It's not clear cut. I find golfers who are more diligent about working on their short game, end up winning more matches and placing better. I think it breaks down to mental game, "golf is 90 percent mental". When people are making their short putts, it allieves their anxieties more than slightly improved ball striking.
  6. Better rotation on downswing, get that right shoulder working down.
  7. You need to let me buy that camera off you.
  8. Agree. Rory is simply awesome, or should I say Brad faxon is awesome.
  9. Check out Louis oosthuizen swings, you guys have similar flow.
  10. I'm always staying optimistic, pursuing multiple tournament wins, the big enemy is TIME.
  11. Setup looks fine, but not keeping COG over the arch of your feet or not toward your heels, keep that power and rotation low and moving off the ball a little to give you space. Hopefully those chunks become nice tidy clips.
  12. Keep working at it, practice with a purpose and nothing wrong with taking one extra club!
  13. Don't give up number one. These breakthroughs take a long time. Get more competitive situations under your belt, you will learn to deal with the nerves better, and you will see better players- their technique and it will rub off on you.
  14. My playing ability is lacking so far, the raw ball striking and putting is leveled up tho, a little frustrating.
  15. I think you can't go wrong with resting and foam rolling
  16. Just want to give OP my best wishes and never give up on your dream
  17. Exactly. I'm doing a lot of deliberate backswing tempo work as well. I want that total mastery over tempo and transition!
  18. Very cool, and the game gets so much more fun as you work toward these new shots and it feels powerful when it's executed on the course.
  19. are you someone who is comfortable hitting the driver with multiple shot shapes? I have seen you on IG and it looks like your swing pattern is capable of shot shaping
  20. Yes, golf should be a social sport, and it can be a social sport if you are more sociable lol. Don't ever express negativity out there, you are lucky to even be playing this great game.
