Have some ideas on how to improve the post-impact look, but little time to experiment with them. This shot looks better; although it's a 5 iron rather than a 3 wood where you got your picture from.

I added 5/8 inch to my 54 Spaldings and put on larger grips; these things are getting HEAVY. 2 iron is now 16.3 ounces and the SW is just under 19.

Found a sleeve of balatas cleaning the garage this weekend. Although they were a dark shade of beige, I grabbed some odds numbered vintage irons and a persimmon driver and played nine. It was a blast. They didn't seem dead at all. Drivers went 250, 3 iron 190, 5 iron 175. The interesting thing was how much lower they launch, and how much better they bite. I tried to upload a pick from my phone, but it said it was too many pixels.

Here's a couple of DTL shots after working on the new backswing and transition drills Lag gave me. Hitting from the right pocket and on the 4:30 line. Now to get better at cutting low left post impact.

Bradley posted a few days ago on FB how moving the hips laterally really encourage the pivot once you run out of range. I'm finding that feeling as it really gives me some leverage to rotate hard.

Great stuff, Les. You slot it beautifully!

How is the on-course play?

Thanks Kyle. It's coming along. Takes a while for this to get into my course swing. I have been getting extra distance, especially on my driver and long irons. I have been struggling with the short irons trying to get the transition worked out.

Little bit of a breakthrough this evening.

I felt an interesting move with my left (front) knee as I did my lateral shift. It moved almost in a circle as I first did my hip slide then my rotation. Provides a cool little sequencing aid as to when to bring the arms through the shot.

Here's a video that describes a lot of what I was feeling. Not that I am endorsing these guys but the knee trace is what I was feeling and doing.

Love it Les!

Just a thought ... maybe a bit of wrist set/mobility at the top gives you bit more time, or more “clutch” as Bradley calls it, at transition. I’ll bet when you’re on the course it’s just a fraction quicker, and sequencing becomes more of a challenge.

To go back to my fly fishing analogy, let that line, leader and tippet unfurl out behind you a bit more, before starting the forward cast. Supple wrists with that same awesome aggression takeaway and the club sets a good bit deeper.

Just what I notice, if it helps.

During a blades and persimmons round on Friday, I was trying to hold the X more to prevent the right slice. I found that if I can move my feeling of peak acceleration/release to be more out in front of the ball it is a lot easier to hold that X.
