A quiet day today.Third time was not lucky and I failed my assessment at rotaryswing.com again. Last time my left side impact position was fine with my left leg posted up nicely over my left ankle. I only had to put in some axis tilt and move my weight better onto my right leg at the top of the back swing. No prizes for guessing that this time my left side was the problem with my left hip moving too far left so that it was not over my left ankle at impact.
 
Talk about nailing jelly to a tree. The assessment was correct. I have struggled for quite a while with my shift left just sort of floating forward without bracing. I fixed it by not shifting properly to the right then I broke it again by when I fixed my shift to the right.
 
Such is life. I practiced on the six hole course at the Cairns Golf Centre. I was pleased with the more penetrating flight on my wedge shots. The highlight was a 73m pitch with my 56* wedge on the second hole. Not so long ago it was strictly 50m maximum with a back swing to left arm horizontal. The extra twenty metres with the same length swing was most welcome. Even better was that it landed within a metre of the hole.
 
Oh, and I had a much better day with my blood sugar levels. Not only that but according to my BMI I am now officially overweight not obese. Or at least I was this morning but I did have a bit to eat and drink at lunch. Still the trend is in the right direction.


Hi Forrest,
What do you think is the reason for the increase in your wedge distance? I had a similar problem with my wedges and I found it was mostly due to club throwaway.

A good read but I'd question your thoughts on keeping the right foot down on the down swing until impact ? If you look at the majority of solid ball strikers they all have their right foot rotating up, around and out during impact. This is a well balanced move that helps your impact position. Maybe it's contributing to the posture and shoulder problems ?

FG, seems like you take a lot of strokes to move the ball the first 300 metres or so. And given that you get to tee it up on the first shot then somethings breaking down in between. Poor woods and or poorer iron play ?

Just be really careful trying to achieve those sort of arbitrary targets and gaps - you can play great golf from 80 degrees of shoulders and 50 degrees of hips if that’s how your body moves

Back problems lie down the path of forcibly limiting hip turn and maximising shoulder turn

Throw a ball and see if you get that tensed up at the end of that backswing?

The 7th at Keysie is for some reason the only disappointing hole on a really good layout. IMO. If you are long enough off the tee you can think the green is reachable in 2. But probs not.

I wouldn't call the 7th disappointing but it is different to just about every other hole on the course.

We were discussing the design this afternoon. At my length it takes two really good hits to safely clear the bunker 40m short of the green. If you can't do that then you either need to lay up short if the pin is to the right or play well right if the pin is to the left. Longer hitters need to skirt the trees on the left to get to the green and it's pretty tight with some dangerous pin placements.

I'd be happy to see the trees blocking the sight of the pin on the second shot removed. Sadly my memory isn't good enough to recall any details about the old green which made the hole play straighter.


But if they removed that cypress tree Mouldy wouldn't have need for his gap wedge draw

I'm thinking that it is out of character in that none of the other greens are placed or shaped to like the 7th. It is a fun hole with the wind behind you. I'd leave the trees. If you could build up the green southend and make it wider I reckon that would be better.

FG
You do realise that keeping your weight on the inside of your trail foot during the backswing is taboo in the professional swing. This is one piece of advice in popular golf instruction that leads to all sorts of problems in the forward swing.
