How dare you say Dan changed a huge flaw in your swing in 2 swings.  Someone posted that he too had changed an enormous swing flaw in two swings with Dan about 6 years ago and he was almost burned at the stake around here.  LOL.

It isn't possible he was told.

Lol, read ya loud and clear :P If people want to do a 1,000 reps to make a subtle change that’s fine. I was more in that camp before now. Reading posted like yours gave me hope and pointed me in the right direction. 2 days changed my whole perspective on Golf improvement.

Played my last competitive golf event for the year. 2 man Ryder cup style league duels. My buddy and I got paired against the opposing teams strongest team who had never lost in the last 3 years. It was a match! One up with one hole to play and we won that hole earning a point for the team. All the work I have been putting in has paid off.

So I live in Wisconsin and weather is already turning to crap. I have a huge mat and just bought a Rukknet and will set it up in our shop and practice on weekends through winter. Since Dan chimed in, my plan is the following:
1) Slow motion swings that will get progressively get faster to ingrain the shallow swing I learned from Dan. Hoping to be at full speed by end of the year.
2) Shallow chipping that dan taught me. I will put a bucket in front of the net and chip from varying distances and trajectories to try to land the ball in the bucket.
3) Putting a short PVC pipe to get putter square at impact. I will also by a putting mat to practice on.
4) Once the new swing is ingrained I will be working with the super speed system to try to increase swing speed next year.

I should be able to put in an hour or two friday then the same saturday and sunday. 4-6 hours a week is the goal. If anyone has suggestions let me know!

One thing that intrigued me about his video lessons even though I was not getting better results playing wise was the cause/effect relationship and how much sense it made even if I wasn't doing it or unable to do it.  He's very good with explaining cause/effect.  I've finally made some visual/position improvements after needing to slow down and exaggerate more what he was saying.  

I ran into him at the PGA championship and he stuck around to talk for a second even when following the guy he came to see.  I nice guy and I hope I can get down next month to see him in person for a few days also.
In search of solid contact...

So Iím from Wisconsin so no such thing as winter golf here. I bought a rukketnet and SkyTrak. This should allow me to groove this change and then work on trajectories and shapes. I also signed up for a indoor golf league which will be for entertainment only. I will post a video of my setup in a week or two

Golf swing wise what we worked on was a little mechanics and changing perspective on how it will feel and look.  The practice routine was designed to make every rep count and be of the highest quality so that retention and application on the course is the highest.   If the rep quality isn’t there you slow down until you can do it correctly.  Essentially you only go as fast as you can execute the drills to near perfection and that speed will change based on how you feel physically and mentally that day

Damn. This is some true Jedi training stuff here and takes some real discipline. I will attempt.

Instead of a ball use a piece of pvc or roll of coins.    Toe or heel hits will send it off line versus square.

Current swing with PW.  I feel like this is a 60-70% swing and hitting it 130-135yards where I used to be around 125 yards with a 90% swing. The odd thing is that if I swing any harder it does not go any farther. That might come once I get this move down more. It does save my back swinging this effortlessly though.
