  1. Thanks for posting this, this is very helpful and something I'll be working on at my next session.
  2. After taking lots of video over the last few weeks, I can't get over how true this is. I noticed that as my club length increased, I would come out of my posture more and more, probably causing my to spray my woods and hybrids all over. I've been working on trying to stay in posture with all my clubs, and got some good results yesterday with 4-wood and driver(!) at my backyard net. Really solid shots. Of course, there's a hole in the net which I can't fix, my mat and rubber tee are now mostly destroyed, and my tripod is falling apart as well 😞. I'll get to the range in one of the next few days
  3. So I've really been working on getting into a "posted-up" position at impact, as I'm hoping it will ensure that my weight and body is in good position to strike the ball more consistently. I've nearly eliminated my dreadful hook with my irons, and the times I do hook, I'm pretty sure it's because I pull up out of my posture and come off the ball. Most of my iron shots now are going straight or fading. I've really tried to feel weight centered, hips turning and bumping toward the target. I'm trying to get my left shoulder low on the backswing and squat into the downswing. I'm still hitting some
  4. So I've been working through the assigned drills from days 1-5 and getting some good solid hits. Also, though I might be getting ahead of myself in getting back to a full swing, I wanted to try the whole "sit/squat into the left leg to start the downswing" bit I've seen, and wow...what results. I filmed the chipping exercise and the impact exercise (what I call "punch"), as well as a slow motion of me just trying a sit/squat with no ball, and one with ball. I can't believe how just doing that 1 motion has me in a much more dynamic position coming through and into the ball than I ever have. My
  5. Posted! I'll try to get better video from head on in the future.
  6. I’ve recently come back to the game after about 2 years off due to frustrations with the game and time/money constraints. I’m 34, 6’, 200 lbs, flexible, and have no major injury history. In other words, I am pretty well set-up for a powerful golf swing, which manifests itself at times. However, I have no accuracy or consistency with my full swing. I can hit my irons fairly well, but I tend to hook my hybrids, pretty severely sometimes. My fairway woods I tend to push/fade, and my driver is all over the map. Snap hooks, push slices, and pure straight bombs. I’ve broken 100 only once over about
  7. I will go back to taking video of my swing once I get my regular phone back. Lots of room on the range and have a tripod, etc. I also think I'll try to get some powder spray or something to see where I'm hitting the ball on the face of the driver, as I read that hitting a heel shot can cause the face to twist closed, causing that nasty shot. I'm going to practice for a bit today and play a quick 9, so I'll see how that goes. Regarding the comments on my grips, I have tried everything sensible over the last 20 years from upgrading my equipment to lessons from various pros. The grip size wa
  8. I've been playing golf recreationally for about 20 years now (I'm 34) and have always wanted to improve, but still stuck in the 100-110 range after years of lessons and thousands spent. I took about 2 years off of golf due to lack of time and money, as well as frustration with the game. However, with my wife starting up with new clubs and lessons, I've been getting back into golf this summer, having played a few times and practicing at the range. The reason I've never been able to shave strokes off my score is that I simply have not been able to strike the ball consistently. Fat an
