  1. Can’t remember where I heard this (maybe here or some YouTube vid). The swing begins right off the ball so if you swing the club first then you’d in theory be in the correct sequence. If you’re swinging the club first from the top then you’re in trouble. If you swing the club first from the ball then the transition (lateral shift and pivot) occurs as a response to the club being swung. My interpretation of what I heard.
  2. Didn’t bother reading the thesis. Seems like you’re thinking too much. I’ll say this tho, I’m looking for the right transition move. My catalyst to begin transition is to sling my arms from the top as much as I feel necessary (not necessarily super quick). What I believe this does: creates tension in the string connecting my body to the club (my arms) so as my body shifts ahead of the arm/club unit. Not entirely sure what you’re trying to work on but maybe that helps/ maybe not. Good luck to you m9
  3. @Nail_It any good exercises for working the scaps? Will pull ups do just fine or some other variation?
  4. I started out with the interlocking grip when I first started playing. I have long boney fingers and it’s pretty uncomfortable for me. No issues with overlap grip. I’m 25, just big hands with boney fingers, not much meat on em lol
  5. Yeah not sure, works on my iphone. It could also be the formatting on my phone camera. Not sure if that’s something I can edit. Based on Montes reply I think it works for some people
  6. Took a week off from hitting balls. What this usually means for me, is a loss of my swing feel so I have to figure it out again. This also means I revert to goat humping (apparently). Only say apparently because I have no video and I’m basing that assumption based on feel. So. The feel (to counteract the ) I had today was for my body to be facing the target at impact. This felt super weird and uncomfortable but it created more distance. Just gotta ‘trust’ it. Kinda scary because my monkey brain just wants to hit the ball. Didn’t hit enough to get a proper rhythm with this. Usually limit myself to a small bucket as I lose focus if I have to hit more than that. I’ll try to play with this feel this week
  7. I can relate to this. I believe I’m beginning to discover that the more I try to create rotation, the less connected I am in my swing. Ie if all I focus on is taking my hands back, I presume I get all the rotation I need and I hit it flush.. so weird, it feels unreal but it works
  8. No video, but definitely feel like I’m making progress. Last range session was hitting some really solid 7 irons. Contact sounded good and flight looked good. Not too high and not too low (somewhere in between which is good for me), and a slight draw. Occasional pull draw but not too bad. I’ll take that over the weak rightward shots any day. My main concern is taking it to the course. last time I went on the course, I was ridiculously nervous and every shot was flying < 100 yards... it was pathetic. but to be fair I wasn’t practicing as much at that point. I feel a bit more confident now. Hesitant to go play because quite honestly I’m afraid I’ll s*** myself again. Any advice on how to get over the fear? Been reading “Mindside”; I believe that’s been quite helpful in my practice.
  9. Something I *think* I’ve been doing since your advice, because honestly it’s pretty hard for me to think flex lead wrist in transition, is flexing it taking it back. Is this okay?
  10. Honestly this is pretty damn difficult but once you know it you feel stupid for not knowing it sooner
  11. Something that’s been helping my ball striking is getting my rear shoulder blade to open up more. I have a tendency of just letting my right arm fold with no shoulder rotation. I think this might get me more width and less arm swing and the better strikes.
  12. *I’ll *until* *you *you’re have a great day
  13. I may not be qualified to comment but I’ll offer my 2 cents. I’ve been trying to do the ‘golf swing’ by utilizing my core ‘turning’ but quite frankly, all this does in my opinion (read: my personal experience) is disconnect me from swinging the club and also creating slack. I’ve been focusing lately on taking the club back with my arms. I find this helps me feel connected and keep my wrists subtle and ready to unload. Again, just my personal experience, and to each their own. OP, you might be on to something caz remember there is no one way to swing. Everyone has their own unique swing. You gotta find what works for your body.
  14. Interesting! I was wondering why when I set up the ball more middle and closed stance I hit the ball on line and hooked it with it off of left heel... I have been using a pretty strong grip but trying to weaken it a bit.
