I slide too much instead of posting up and turning in the downswing; instructor confirmed as much this morning.  Hoping this helps ingrain the right feels a bit…855A68AD-A283-499F-9E1E-4D17270A6656.jpeg.d29bace2704cca49fb939db7246e0c0b.jpeg

Sliding has been a problem with me also. Right now gave it under control……

Bought this last week. In my fitting I was able to both line this up perfectly and start the ball on line almost automatically.

Sliding is a hard habit to break.  I did it for years; you can play that way, but it's not efficient.  Hope this works for you.

I find I can minimize it by focusing on my head position and emphasizing staying behind the ball.  Still, would like that to be an automatic ingrained feel rather than a conscious thought to focus on…

I've gotten so close to pulling the trigger on these multiple times. Like you, I'm a slider, especially when my pivot gets a little too much sway and not enough turn in it.

I'd be curious to hear your feedback on whether you think it would help prevent too much lateral pressure shift to the backside in the backswing. I would assume if you do that, you can't put pressure on the force pedal under your back heel.

Cut a tennis ball in half or even use a squeaky toy from the pet store.

A semi-impulse-purchase yesterday.  

Was surfing 2nd Swing's website as I do from time to time.  Have been thinking about putting my MS-11s back into play; I've set them down for trajectory and spin reasons a couple times in the last dozen years.  Those problems are not as pressing these days as they were 10 years ago.  😉

I've also been toying with trying a utility in the 17*-18* slot in the bag.  And, have thought about even replacing Mizuno blade 3i with an MP-20 HMB.

Well, as I poked around the site, I saw they had an MP20 HMB 2 iron, complete with Steelfiber i95 stiff.  A shaft I am contemplating.

Took it as a Sign from the golf gods.  Hoping it gets here in time to use this weekend.  Living in the same town as 2nd Swing HQ might help there.

Picked up a used SM8 as my current 54* is a SM7 I bought from CPO a year and a half ago on a whim (price was right) and is a half inch short and isn't the right grind for me. I had been waiting for one in good condition for a good price! Really excited to finally land one, had to comb through a lot of listings to find the right one!

Bought a SIM 2 head off the other forum… been testing the Sun 70 driver and have really liked it’s pop compared to my cobra, but since the Sub 70 uses a TM adapter I figure I should at least have a TM head lying around too… I may have a problem lol

Tinkering is causing me some issues...  Case in point, I bought a used 2016 M2 that had a great but cut down shaft on it.  I swapped that to my 3 wood  and now my 3W which was coming around for me has turned into an absolute monster 240+ leaving me with a very large gap at the top end.  So, time to put a hybrid back in the bag...

 Rbz stage 2 tour 2 hybrid.

Okay so now I'm way too full at the bottom end of the bag...  Out go the Kirkland's and in go a used TM hi toe 58 I bought at play it again and a new cbx 2 54 that I bought to fill the gap.  

Oh and did I mention that I started dabbling in club building...  So new shafts for the hi toe and cbx 2.   

Im hoping the bag is finally settled after this but who knows....

...I am doing some motivational speaking to get my fellow YB's ready to get back into action to help the golfers of the world practice their passion.

I knew you were an f...ing range ball by the way you flew... 25 yards short!!  Now I have another excuse!!

I see the old age memory loss problem kicking in again Kenny. I mentioned my heritage wasn't on the Urethane side of the tracks. I am a Surlyn.  But just because I was giving a motivational speech to some abused YB range balls doesn't mean I was born a range ball.  Here is a little family history. When I came over to the US they mis heard my name. I said "Sir Lynn" and they wrote it down as Surlyn. So although I wreak havoc to most, almost all royalty wreaked havoc in ther kingdoms. I'm just trying to uphold the family traditions. Rule by intimidation. I believe I am doing an excellent job!
