  1. Yeah, I mean so far the instruction has been fine with Dennis so I don't want to make it sound like he is bad or something. I just thought it was strange that you sign up for a subscription to something because you want to get feedback from a specific person and then after a lesson or 2, it changes to someone else. Maybe that was in the fine print somewhere, but the main reason why i subscribed was because I wanted Eric's feedback every month.
  2. I am a member and find it to be really helpful. However, (and I am not knocking this, but only wondering why this is), after my second lesson, all of my lessons were viewed and responded by someone named Dennis. I am not sure if that is how it works, but I haven't heard from Eric since my first 2. Again, I want to be clear this is not necessarily a bad thing or a knock on Dennis. I just don't know why that is.
  3. Does anyone know what spikes are available to replace with these shoes? I need to replace the spikes but i'm not sure what my options are. I am looking for something with more grip. Thanks!
  4. I think I got a little more up and less flat in the backswing here. Not sure about the hand path through....
  5. Here are the things that i am working on / trying to do: 1) get a little more vertical and more wrist hinge in my backswing and complete my turn 2) shallow the club instead of steep on the way down 3) clubface squared or slightly closed in the downswing instead of wide open going into impact and flipping Is that what you mean? I am "trying" to do all of these things but it isn't necessarily showing in my swing (at least I don't think so!).
  6. Anyone have any good tips or fixes on getting rid of an open clubface on the downswing? I have this and it causes me to stall and flip and I can't seem to figure out a way to get that out of my swing. I am a 12 handicap and have pretty decent fundamentals but I am stuck with this flaw that I would like to get rid of. Any advice on things that have worked for you all? Thanks!
  7. I bought the hanger aid because i could never keep an actual hanger on the shaft. It would slip around when taking my grip. I find that with the aid, in order to get flat at the top, I need a super weak left hand grip. Did I do something wrong?
  8. Anyone use this training aid? I just picked one up but feel like i either set it up wrong or I am not using it right. Anyone have any tips to get it set up correctly and tips on using it? Thanks!
  9. Are you supposed to actually do that on your downswing or just feel that? I have always lost my right wrist bend and have had a slightly cupped left wrist at the top. I just can't imagine on a full swing revving a motorcycle handle. I feel like that would be impossible and make things worse!
  10. is there a video to explain what that means?
  11. I hope people can help me out. I’m a 12 handicap that struggles with an open clubface throughout my swing causing me to flip and stall through impact. When it is really bad I get the shank. My drivers are either pushes right or hooks left. Any tips on what I need to work on? I cat see to figure it out.
  12. I am thinking about doing a Bandon trip for my 40th. I turn 40 in December so would want to take the trip some time in 2021. I am sure there are tons of posts about this but I had a few questions that I hope could be answered without having to search through a bunch of posts. 1) How do people typically book Bandon? Do you pay for a Golf Travel Consultant or do you typically book the trip on your own? I ask because ideally i'd want to book an all inclusive package if there is such a thing. 2) What is the best season in terms of weather? 3) Do any courses allow carts? (My dad is 73 so if he were to come with walking would not be an option for him) Thanks!
  13. Great stuff! Thank you for the thorough response! I will look into this all tonight. I appreciate it.
  14. Maybe I was misunderstanding. I was confused about what he says about having the elbows pointed to your midsection rather than to the target at address (around 6:45 in the video). I have never seen someone having their elbows start like that at address
  15. Can anyone explain what this is used for and how to use it (that is not an infomercial?
  16. I recently came across Eric Cogorno and I like some of the things he teaches from what I have seen. I am working on my backswing and am having trouble with an open face coming down. I saw this video and am confused (particularly around the 6:40 mark). In looking at a lot of pro swings, to my eye, none of them have their elbows like this. Most of what I have seen looks like it is pointed to the target; opposite of what he is teaching. Can anyone help elaborate or is this not good? My swing from last year is below as well for reference. My miss is an open face shank, I tend to be too cupped at top and no right wrist bend, causing me to be open on the downswing, stall and flip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RROKALR1xrUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6armeRT6g-w
  17. I am looking to get a backyard hitting net and wanted some recommendations. I have a relatively small yard, but still plenty of room for a net. I would be looking at something that can easily be set up and that is not permanent. I live in a suburban area that has neighbors so I'd want to make sure the net catches the ball without worrying about missing the net and hitting a house. What would you all suggest? The ability to hit all clubs would be nice but not 100% necessary. Thanks!
  18. I am working on this drill to keep my left wrist flat at the top and to help keep bend in my right wrist. However, I am having trouble keeping the hanger on the club and it always seems to force me into a very weak grip for some reason. Anyone have any tips on how to do this drill with keeping your grip consistent and keeping the hanger on the club? Thanks!
  19. Question... I had a lesson yesterday and it was apparent that my right foot came off the ground on the downswing and that my balance was off pushing me towards the ball. I was told that at address, the weight should be on the balls of my feet / centered and at the top of the swing my weight should be at the heel of my right foot. From there, my weight should move from right heel to left foot. He was saying that in my swing I start from the top down (bad) and that I should swing from the ground up keeping by left shoulder behind as long as possible. Are these accurate tips? I ask because looking at a lot of tour swings, many of their swings have their right foot coming off on the downswing. I have a tendency to hit shanks, so maybe he was telling me this as a feel thing to stop coming toward the ball. I'm curious to see what you think. Thanks BZ
  20. [quote name='MonteScheinblum' timestamp='1403014078' post='9513883'] Your arms don't have enough room. Too much bend at knees and not enough at waist/hips. [/quote] Also, when you say knee bend, can you explain? When I look at pros, to me it looks like they have knee bend. I'm trying to understand what you mean. Also, can you explain when you say my arms don't have enough room?
  21. [quote name='MonteScheinblum' timestamp='1403014078' post='9513883'] Your arms don't have enough room. Too much bend at knees and not enough at waist/hips. [/quote] Thanks... when you say my arms down't have enough room, can you explain? Also, is there an example of good posture vs. my posture that you are referring to? I feel like a number of pros have knee bend so I want to visualize what you are referring to. Thanks! BZ
  22. I have a problem with swaying in my swing as well as not getting a large enough shoulder turn (specifically with irons). I have a tendancy to lose my tush line and get closer to the ball at impact causing a shank. Does anyone have any tips or drills to correct this? This is mostly on 7 irons and above. For whatever reason, my driver swing is ok though. BZ
