Swing Overhaul 2021 - Let's get to work!


Recommended Posts

Not much new to report on the swing overhaul.  I try to swing indoors most days working on centerdness of strike. 

I've just been so busy with work and planning our home sale (offer accepted) and trip out of state to find a new home.  Other real world priorities you know. 

I did play about a week ago and shot a +4 76 with @MrBandit I wasn't striking it all that well with my irons and wedges (lots of shots off the toe) but my putter was finally decent and I had a few birdies on the round.  Driver was solid, woods were solid (two tee balls too solid and went through the FW into hazards...).  Played only fades and it worked well.

Still a work in progress!

Here is Day 1.  Just a visual for those curious to see what I'm working on and how I'm progressing:

Hey CS, I just came across your "chasing scratch" thread... loving in.  I have just embarked on a similar goal based improvement regimen, and the keys you outlined with included tips videos are perfect for my swing (and flaws).  I have to admit, I jumped to the end of your thread and watched your day 1 to Week 5(?) comparison video, and the difference is staggering.  Well done!  

While my goals aren't scratch golf... I am targeting a solid 5.  And also increase my swing speed by 5mph on average.  I believe a lot of my issues have to do with poor swing position and over compensating in the down swing to hit the ball solidly (but not nearly consistent enough).  I will say that my scrambling is more likely why I am a single digit than my ball striking... so with improvement on achieving more "pro-like" positions in the swing will definitely provide more scoring opportunities. 

Thanks for the documented journey and the great comments and suggestions along the way.  Can't wait to see that scratch handicap card that you will post soon!
