I'm trying to play a little draw but it's not the most natural thing for me since I've been pretty much a fader the last few years...

Like I said in the PM, it's a pretty tough racket out there on the mini tours.

Wish I could "miss 'em straight"!
I saw your videos when you posted them originally. Looks a damn decent swing to my eye. Great rhythm, plenty of power. Not sure that many people feel qualified enough to comment.
Playing off +2 and you only play half the year? That's a pretty good effort.

I tried to get it down the line but there was a pole in the way at my stall! LOL! I tend to look more at the ball flight than my swing so I guess I subconsciously set the camera up to catch the flight. I'll post a different one with better angle tomorrow.
Thanks for the comments...

We're driving down to Paradise Canyon in Lethbridge. I guess the course is in great shape and it's booked solid. Supposed to be about 12 degrees C so that's good enough for me! Where do you usually play in Calgary??

What do you feel when you are hitting them? I can see that after you hit you still kinda tweak the face open...sort of hold it off open. The sign of a true feel player y0!
Honestly trembola, I don't really know. I mean I know intellectually what I'm supposed to do to curve the ball but after all these years, if I want to hit a fade, I just "feel" a fade. I know that might sound hoaky, but it's what I do. When you go to shake someone's hand, do you think about where to put your fingers, or where to position your feet, or how close you should be standing to the guy? It's pretty much like that for me. I just feel the shot and swing. I'll be the first to admit that the old feel isn't always on but over all, this "method" (if you want to call it that) is what works for me. I suppose 30 years of hitting balls for hours nearly every day has my subconscious trained pretty well....

Probably a little stale as far as Isaac is concerned, which is fine because what the hell am I going to tell a +hc former pro? "No, no, no!"? Don't think so.
I will say "Jeans at the
