I hit 250'! And the camera was rolling for it.

Thanks a million again, Sidewinder! I'm feeling palpable results.

Somebody earlier in this thread who also once blew up their form said it took way longer than they thought it would. You're not kidding, buddy! I think I'm around 1,500 putter standstills. I believe tonight was my first real "Aha!" moment and I pretty much sucked up until right this evening.

Looking nice!

Looks like your setup stance is like 6" too wide. Try setting up a little more narrow and striding into your current stance or stepping to the left slightly.

I had a week of bad days, then one good one yesterday, then I tried one-stepping after watching your ball golf video with them starting with their feet together this evening. BINGO!!! I had the best day of throwing drives in my life. This video is early in the session too. I got better later.

THANK YOU as always, Sidewinder! You're a freaking hero!

Must be the coffee.

Need to loosen up the arm and swing the front shoulder heavier and more linearly back and forth like your arm is an axe cutting down a tree or a battering ram. Make your front shoulder swing much further back and forth than your rear shoulder. I would recommend starting in a wider stance with a smaller stride or even starting in a really wide stance and striding the front foot backwards into narrower stance. Or the Elephant Walk/Open to Closed drill. Your rear foot too late and trying to push/drive during or through the swing, instead of driving/shifting the hips forward before the swing.

Roger, thank you for the synopsis. I will be studying up before I hit the field tomorrow! (Weather permitting...we're supposed to get a boatload of rain.)

Tee to basket angle video just finished uploading. I can tell I'm all over the place and still have a long way to go, but I'm happy and very encouraged nonetheless.

Get your chin above your shoulder or shoulder swinging underneath chin and keep upper arm wider than 90 from shoulder.

That's a masterful 8 minutes of not spilling a drop of beer!

Hey y'all, I'm still working on my RHBH's with some ups and downs along the way, as expected, even rebounding from a terrible day when I questioned if I had it in me.

I did a little video of something I'm actually decent at, and I thought why not put it here as a part of my chronicle of this process. You can probably see why I so viciously want to get better with drives because I'm decent at the second part of playing a hole.

If I could add just 50 feet to my drives consistently, I think I could really lower my scores. My putting is pretty good for an am. Usually I run into people who have it the other way around; they can bomb drives but can't putt much. That's always seemed weird to me.

Anyway, I hope my chronicling of this process as an amateur going through a midlife Disc crisis inspires others like me to get out there in the open field during this damned (but necessary) pandemic and work on that form! We don't have to be the next Calvin Heimburg. We just want to get better. Can't wait to hook back up with my friends and play when this crap is all over!
