    Learning to pound the driver.. Weakest part of my game over the last few years. Trying to work the club around my body but keep from getting too flat.

    Thank you for the advice. I have done a lot of playing around with my plane over the last year and ideally, I try to take the club back and around my body so that it “cuts” through my left should. Just getting started for this year so very likely that I am what appears to be a fraction off.

    Back on the range for the first time this year. Hitting my new M2. Plane appears to be good and maybe a little bit of a shorter swing but it felt very controlled. I also was testing out standing a little bit further from the ball and adding a little more flex in the knees. 2 things that I am messing around with.

    • I used to do this same move that you are doing at the top of your swing. You are taking the club back on a too shallow of a plane, so when you get to the top of your backswing the only way to save it is to move to a steeper plane in the downswing to get any power. It Took me a while to get rid of it. It could be due to your Strong grip. That can…

    Working on shaping the ball right to left as much as possible… Lots of fun to try!

    My final video and range session for this year. Have not had a session since the last video but looking pretty good still!

    Thank you Christo! I am always amazed at how a slight adjustment can make a huge difference! I was hitting it so far left until I extended my arms just a touch and it was back down the center again haha! I am stoked for next season and I hope to make a trip in the winter somewhere warm to play!

    Working out some of the kinks in my golf swing as the season starts to come to an end..I have battled a pretty big slice with my driver this year and today I decided to reach out and bit more, extend my arms slightly and swing around my body.. Here are a couple of good swings. Enjoy and…[Read more]

    • Man, you’re impact position is to die for! Looking fantastic going around the body and there’s nothing I’d suggest other than keep practicing!

    Very cool sir! I can’t wait to see it!

    Exactly! Excited to see what you are working on! Any video?

    Thank you so much! I decided to start from the ground up with my swing this year and try to rebuild it. I would say it has been a success. It is just a matter of getting it out on the course more.

  • Sam posted an update 1 year, 2 months ago

    Hey Christo! Thank you! I would be honored if you would like to use it as an example.

    • Hey Sam – Your swing analysis video is posting to My Swing Evolution’s YouTube right now! Great swing you have there, and great job building it and showing the rest of us how it’s done. Cheers!

    • I checked out the video, Sam. Geez! Nice speed through the ball. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you Christo! I have been messing around a little bit with how close my hands are to my body at address… Do you think they are too close or do you think there is some room for personal preference and comfort. I use to have them way too far and when I get them more away from my body, I tend to get disconnected.

    • I do believe it has a lot to do with personal preference. Hogan reached a bit, but Byron Nelson said you can’t be too close. Watching your swing, you are able to stay down nicely through the hit so I think it’s working for you! May I post your swing on my channel? I’d like to talk about it in a video.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umZOPoF4fbI\ A new video with some of my key positions slowed down…Trying to feel low and right on the way through and it has really paid off!

    • Man, that’s a heck of a smackdown you put on that ball!

    It seems like my game is truly coming full circle! I have eliminated the likelihood of crazy misses left and right and my ball striking is more consistent than it ever has been. The missing link for me right now is my driving. It is the club I have spent the least amount of time with so far this year. I am very confused with it. I am trying to…[Read more]

    If it is easier, I could make a video about this and drop it in here πŸ™‚

    I am a lefty so my left miss is like a push slice. I just don’t know if I should be keeping the hands quiet or rolling them a little bit through the impact zone or is it just something to toy with maybe and see what works?

  • Sam posted an update 1 year, 7 months ago

    Hey Christo! Thank you so much for the feedback! It makes me feel really confident in what I am doing. For the first time in the last 2 or 3 years, I finally feel like I have some solid techniques to work with and improve on every week. I do have a question about the hands. You probably have a video on this already but I am curious…Should my…[Read more]

    • Not sure how to answer that. Is your left miss a hook or a pull? I played well with the hold off release, but I really picked up a lot of distance with the supination that Mr. Hogan used. He said trying to control the face through impact was folly, and you can’t give 5 yards to another guy. When you think about it, over the course of a 72 hole…[Read more]

    Hey Christo! Here is the new camera angle.. A little off center but I hope it’s good enough. Let me know what you see.

    • All right, Sam. What a wonderful swing. I really like your action. First of all you are swinging so well, I’m just going to make suggestions. The first is I’d like you to be careful of letting your head get in front of the ball. Your head moves off a bit, just like Mr. Hogan, which is fine and then it moves forward just a bit in front of…[Read more]

    Hey Christo! Thank you! I am going to the range again this week so I will get that new angle for you.
