  1. Here it is, found it on Potter’s IG. Thanks for sharing. This is the loop: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLhcIm7pHoD/?utm_medium=copy_link So I bought the Putting Arc but it doesn’t say what degree arc it is…so I’m hesitant to get the Visio one since I’d like for both to have the same degree arc.
  2. Alright guys, I’m recommitting to the old faithful Seemore FGP for this year and getting back on track with a consistent setup. Things got wacky in the past year after trying those sexy and new putting shafts. I seemed to have developed a loop in transition, out to in and in to out. No matter what I do, there’s a loop. I bought a putting arc to get the feel of getting back and forth on the same path but it’s rather bulky to take to the course. Anyone got some drills for the practice green that addresses getting back and forth on the same path and getting rid of the loop in transition? Much appreciated!
  3. Here’s the one that really works for me. https://www.instagram.com/p/CKMI6q9FxrB/?utm_medium=copy_link At any point of the backswing, I should be able to turn and face my hands, and my hands should be in front of my chest. That is what is demonstrated in the link.

  5. To me this is more a feel than a drill. The head is getting closer to the ball by feeling like your trail hip is working around/toward your front heel or that the trail leg is straightening AND your front knee is flexing more as you take the club back. See the “look” in the picture below. Of course you can do this with your head on the wall, your head will get lower during the backswing, no club involved, just practicing the movement.
  6. I think anyone trying to make a significant swing change should see an instructor pretty regularly. It’s pretty normal to get similar lessons over the span of a few months. Sometimes there’s progress and then regression. The new action causes a new reaction which is why swing changes often come in pairs. The check-in lessons will ensure that the change is becoming reality and that nothing else is getting out of whack while trying to make the change.
  7. Here’s my take, and I’m no professional. Others have mentioned this before, and I’m of the opinion that you should work first on the takeaway. But I understand why you’d want to listen to others here who do this for a living. What do I know anyway! With that, this is my opinion. You make compensations at the top of your swing to counter the outside takeaway at the start of your swing. At very start of the transition, I see a “loop/shift” move at the top that drops the hands and club more behind you. And it’s more pronounced is this swing, than the shank swing. So all else being equal, when you work on a different pressure shift, it feels “weird” in the “upper half of the transition” because whatever is it you did differently disrupted your ability to adequately make your compensating “loop/shift” move. All it takes is a 1 inch disruption in your pattern to expose the hosel. And you don’t have a lot of room for error with your current pattern. It may very well be that if you work on your pressure shift or shoulder rotation, issues with your takeaway may resolve on their own. But you’ll have to fight through all this to find out. You should probably invest in a lesson with Monte to see what he has to say rather than just getting nuggets of information on a thread. And when I first was serious about making a swing change and rebuilding my swing, after the first lesson, I hit shanks for a month straight, and the second month was marginally better than the first. But my body eventually adjusted.
  8. Yeah, any of those drills would work. Loop the Shoulder too. I would do this all with the added goal trying to hit EVERYTHING off the toe for awhile.
  9. Look at The Efficient Swing, section 4.7 - Touch the Elbows. That would be my guess.
  10. Path was outside. Looks like takeaway of pushing hands away from body is contributing, if not causing it.
  11. During the second delay or so, back in Feb 2021, they offered refunds. I requested one then, and got my money back. They probably ran out of funds now. Hopefully, they come through with the product for everyone.
  12. No drills, just lots of Mirror Vision. Also, the wrist isn’t the only way to think about the problem with being across the line at the top. Trail shoulder extension and lead arm rotation can also get you less across the line.
  13. Something like this is good, an actual drill. Gankas does something similar. The goal is for the alignment sticks to touch before the club hits the ball. But it’s all explained in the post. The part in the post about getting down is key. From a practical standpoint if the trail side is closer to the ball at impact the more the trail elbow will have to stay bent to hit it. At least that’s the way it looks to me. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CVYAranACOX/?utm_medium=copy_link
  14. There’s also a lesson that Gankas gave Riggs from Fore Play Golf that might be useful to check out too. It’s also on YouTube.
