Here's a then-and-now comparison...

Then 2019-11-05 ...

 

And more recently ...

 

Starting to get there....................

Your swing is looking good, definitely getting your weight on the lead foot and not hanging back on your trail side. There's a huge difference there.

Thank you!

It's hard to see without the coach telling you in-person and drawing lines on the screen, but I'm still a little "behind" thru impact and my upper body is actually hanging back a bit. But yeah getting there.

Thank you! Should've captured a screenshot maybe, but in last two lessons the majority of my swings ended up on a much better dispersion around the target vs when we started. Yeah there's still a pull-left and a block-right here and there, but overall getting better.

Very much an on-going work in progress!!

We have worked out a deal with a new coach, I am still extremely hesitant to go back but They know more than I do so here we go.  the "deal" new coach and a free one hr lesson. 

When I go to the range or on the course my miss is always a draw or hook. Rarely will I miss right with a fade or slice. On the sim at golf tec everything is right and I mean everything. I really have to over exaggerate to get the ball to draw and impossible to hook the ball, not that I want that, but just saying. I have told this to both coaches, I am wondering if the issue is the simulator is right side biased if thats even possible. 

 

My HR lesson consisted of half swings trying to draw the ball. I am going to do what they ask and see where it goes. 

 

Bring on 2021 have a safe New Years fellas and ladies.

Interesting.  I have to admit I myself sometimes have a hard time trusting the numbers on a sim.  In a perfect world I'd be able to take lessons outside on a range...maybe next assignment...

Haven't updated in a while...

Definitely making progress with my full swing .. in the learning studio .. while, not surprisingly .. the results have yet to consistently show up on the course. That said, I did have my PB 9-hole round about a week ago - a 41 (+5) - and that was with one penalty off the tee (on the last hole, too!).

Here's an 8i swing from a recent lesson (09-01-2021) ...

https://s3.amazonaws.com/golftec_lessons/lessondata/700/700633297/1024817331/swing1/swing_analysis_desktop.mp4

Still have *plenty* to keep working on - including not lifting the arms too much on the backswing, extending the arms fully coming into impact, keeping the weight shift moving target-ward throughout the whole swing, not bending the upper body forward/the hips back after impact, and etc etc etc!! 

But compared to where I'd started this is a lot of progress.

We do mix in an occasional short game lesson - eg. work on better contact, work on distance control; and coming up in about two weeks I have an outdoor playing lesson scheduled .. looking forward to that!

Interested in your feedback on that playing lesson.  I’ve been thinking about doing the same, but if memory serves it ain’t cheap…

Ha no golf is certainly a co$$tly undertaking!

I have a bunch of lesson "credits" available - note that one lesson credit = a ½ hour lesson and that a playing lesson of 9 holes = 5 credits. Your cost per credit depends on what package you buy (larger packages give you a lower per credit pricing), and if you buy during one of their sales (recommended as you get a -15% discount off standard pricing).

Also it's not private - there will be one or two other students in the same lesson.

But definitely am looking forward to it .. hoping to pick up a number of good tips about selecting and planning different shots around the course, particularly on approaches and short game.

We'll see .. let ya know..!
