At Chaseís advice, since Iím hitting it really well right now, he wants me to film my swing lots so i have something to go back to when it gets a little off.

Iím making some good progress on the changes with trips to the range and also hitting lots of wedges every night at home. Itís becoming more natural, and as a side effect, my wedge swing is improving as well. Wedge play has always been a strength of mine, but last season it was  a bit lacking.

Anyway, hereís a few swings from yesterday. Moving in the right direction.

Of course you would find a shirt to match those shoes :lol:


Swing just looks more fluid in today's videos.  I still think your next major step in the process is getting into tournament play.  Club champs are one thing, but getting into tournaments on courses that you aren't comfortable with just changes the way you approach the game.  You're a better player now than I've ever been but the idea still applies.  My biggest step forward was my one year in college where it was just constant tournaments for 3 months.  Finding ways to score when the swing isn't there under tournament conditions just makes the rest of the game so much easier.  Casual rounds are a breeze and I feel like I can compete in tournaments on courses that I'm comfortable on.  Your swing is there, time to show it off a bit.

I totally agree with all of your points. I like playing in tournaments and need to sit down and figure out some events to test my game in. Tournament pressure just exposes weaknesses in a way that casual rounds donít. Like you said, getting the ball in the hole.

Swing is feeling more and more fluid as I practice it. Driver and long clubs need a bit of work still but theyíre miles better than before.

Short game is tight, iron play is vastly improved, etc.

Plus the jitters of tournament play are fun

Worked hard on driver today. With some setup tweaks and an intent change, Iím launching it higher, and as a result, carrying it further. Donít know numbers, but it was appreciably further on the range than Iím used to.

With driver, i need more secondary tilt at address, a shorter backswing, and i need to hit less down on it (feels like Iím hitting way up, but is probably even AoA or a few up.)

So basically, set up and try to hit up on it and hook it. Results are great. Little draws.

Feel isn't real.  

So, with the efficient pattern, what is preventing you from feeling like you are going after it? Another way of phrasing this question: you don't feel like you are hitting it that hard, is there another gear (maybe fourth instead of third)?

Good question. Something to be explored. Carry distance is up throughout the bag, and i think after sitting with the changes for a bit i can probably accelerate my arms harder without shifting them out so much.

Your swing looks more free at the top.  Are you starting to let your elbow "fly" more?  It used to have more of a "pinned" look.

Yes. That was something we actively worked on in Houston. A little freer elbow at the top and less laid off allows me to externally rotate my right shoulder/get the right elbow forward better in the downswing.

It definitely feels more free.

Getting closer.

I feel comfortable pretty much from wedge to 5w with the changes. Driver/3w needs some work still. With those clubs the swing tends to get a little long and I still want to yank the handle too much to create speed. Gonna keep at it!

Looks Good!!  At the top of the 5W swing are you trying to route your hands out and away from you ?

When Iím swinging at it well, Iím a 112-115 mph driver guy. Highest Iíve been is 119. When my swing is really off, sucking hands inside too early and rerouting out on the downswing, Iím 108-110, and considerably shorter with driver.

Yeah, not surprised by those numbers.  You seem to move the club pretty easy.  Swings that carry speed but look easy are where its at!
