What/How Did You Practice Today?

Recommended Posts

Getting back into SS training before hitting the gym hard in the offseason. back at it for a couple weeks. Today on my post protocols swinging as hard as i could (or so i thought) my CHS was around 112. I then thought to swing like i would on the course (a feel of a pause at the top and then explode). Avg there was 114. I was surprised. I guess i was sequencing better. Plan was to get to the range and hit balls after but when i got up, I was so exhausted after eating i passed out for 1 1/2 hours. Did the speed work an hour after that nap and now its work time. Hopefully i can hit some balls friday and see where things are at.

I have to get back into the SS training to see if the work I've been doing on Monte's bigger, deeper swing will work well with the speed training.  My swing "feels" faster, and I'm seeing a few more yards but that may be due to better synch.

Back to the range today to work on my swing adjustments.  Originally planned to just hit my 7 iron but contact was so consistent I pulled out the rest of the bag, too.  Even hit the 5 iron pretty solid a few times.  Developing a new pre shot routine is helping me out.

One thing I'm struggling with is keeping the club head pointing upwards during the takeaway, rather than more downward.  I didn't think to ask during the lesson but is getting the club head in the right position more a matter of grip or rotation?

My range session started out good today, I was loosening up hitting some short chips and they were nice. Then, without warning, the shanks came out of left field and punched me in the mouth. The hits kept on coming and I was ready to leave half a large bucket and go home. That just led to firing off some shots without a plan which didn't help anything.

I realized after a while that my right bicep was hurting which tells me I'm getting into old swing habits. I stepped back and realized I was becoming disconnected with my trail arm. I tucked my sleeve underneath my armpit and started seeing better shots. They weren't all spectacular, but it was enough to know that with more work I can make a better swing and possibly score better. I even pulled the 4 iron and hit three decent balls. 

It's been a rough year for my game, but as fall approaches, it is coming into prime time for me to play. I'm really excited to see what it holds.

I actually went to the range yesterday to work out why I was goat humping and hitting everything just plain bad.

Found: One swing that was lost at Windmill Lakes.

I was getting too far away from the ball for starters. It also looks like I was getting stuck on my back foot.

I got closer to the ball (the end of my grip a fist length from my body) and kept some weight on my front foot.

BOOM, back to getting the ball in the air and going straight again.

I have a tendency to start over thinking mechanics and positions which leads me to being very armsy in my swing (focusing on positions too much) - and outside in path.  So I have been working on a one piece takeaway with my shoulders to create a full turn.  The positive outcome seems to be a more natural and more correctly timed opening of the hips to allow the swing to come through with a better path.  At least that is where I am in my head.  How that looks IRL may be a different story.  I think this may be one of the many sinkholes draining my swing speed.  I know that generating speed with the arms is futile, I just can't convince my body to activate my core more.  

When I turn with the shoulders and not arms, my swing feels more in sync and I am more consistent with ball contact.  So I'm trying to create that habit by reps currently.

This made my day and reinforced my decision to never take my XL out of my garage 😂

Can you share a little bit about your camera setup with the Mevo? Do you have any issues with setup/takedown? I currently use the Rapsodo as my launch monitor and really wish I could have a better camera view to go along with the launch stats. I saw that there is support for a multi-camera view with the Mevo+. It's starting to look awful tempting for the indoor winter setup...

I have my iPhone set as the primary camera for the Mevo. It’s attached to an @irange stick I have stuck in the ground for my down the line shots. I have another stick in the ground for face one. I have used both the iPhone and my iPad at the same time w Flightscopes multi cam app. My biggest challenge was not technology, it was getting the iPads camera positioned right. I typically just move my iPhone from one stick to the other. For my Skillest coach’s purposes that’s good enough. But the MultiCam does work slick.  
 

the irange sticks just stay in the ground.  I’ve got a metal disc I slipped into the iPhones case and it is grabbed by the big magnet on the stick. Takes zero time once you’ve done the prep work. It just snaps into position.  You can see the stick in the ground behind and to the left of the Mevo.

the Mevo has a built in camera but my coach wants the video at hand level down my foot line - so I don’t used the Mevo camera - but its available. 
 

one of the nice things is the manner in which it exports, how much actual time it grabs (I have it set to 3 seconds before impact and 1.5 after) so the files are too bad. Slo no obviously much larger.  So in video mode EVERY swing is recorded as raw video. Then you can export it and the app lays the data you want like speed, distance, angles etc over the video.  So when I export for my coach she can see the swing and also four or five data blocks
 

I could use the Mevo camera, the iPhone front camera, the back camera, the back camera in slow motion, the iPad front, rear, you get the idea. 
 

The thing that made the difference in ease of set up was the @iirange sticks. I’ve got them w the spike, but it screws off, and this winter when I go inside I’ll attach the base plate so it can stand on the floor. 
 

helpful?

Went to the range with the new irons. They have top tracer there which not sure how many of you have used, but really enjoyed it. Definitely going to go more often and try out some of the games and so on!

Worked on chipping and putting today. Took chipping videos for my coach to assist me. Also got some pointers from @twyatt700and that seemed to help. Moving the ball almost back to my back foot helped consistency a lot. Also played games on the green putting to put more pressure on me. Really focused on 15ft and in as that is where my SG are worst. Realized I bleed a lot of putts in or end up short. Need to hit a little harder with more confidence if I 100% trust my line.

I spent the last two days in the practice area.  Even though I played well this weekend, I know my swing is not "there" yet.  Today on the range I was working on a bigger, deeper backswing.  For anyone working on their swing while trying to play a round of golf... DON'T!!  Go play golf and forget about your swing drills.  Changing a swing habit leads to horrible shots, but it's necessary to get the movement correct.  Doing it on the golf course will only make you very unhappy!!  Just go have fun.

I have also spent a bunch of time on chipping and pitching which have been neglected while working on full swing.  Yesterday was pretty bad, but today I started to see improvement in distance control that I've been lacking the last few months.  I worked with my 9i for chipping; I've never used it before.  I think I'll be giving it a try on the course for chips where the ball is close to the green but the flagstick is 20 feet or more away.  I usually use my 60º and sometimes my 48º PW, but the 9i seems to use less effort with better results.  My only issue with it is that I tend to push the shot a little right.  Need to work on alignment.

Currently unable to get out due to some family health problems. Set up the yard with some chipping nets to test out the new milled grind wedge and pulled out the ol indoor putting mat to use to spend my meeting times wisely. I'll be working around and on the green with no problem once I'm back out there!

Other than playing for a low shot why play the ball that far back in the stance?
