It’s been 13 years since I won the CPC (now known as the PGA PNC) and I haven’t made the cut since 2007 or something like that, so each year I try to prepare knowing that I am on the downside of my playing career but still eager to put what I know about the swing into action on the course. I have some hope this year as I have had some decent results early (mostly due to short game and putting) but also because I have been working out diligently and am in the best shape and feeling stronger than I have in almost 10 years. The biggest issue has been with the driver, and you can see from the videos that I still have pattern issues getting the club crossed at the top and moving into the front of my left foot starting down, getting me somewhat under myself and stuck and producing a two way miss. Getting the clubhead to stay outside or even with my hands in the takeaway feels like I’m jacking it way outside, but if I stop my right arm and consciously try to move my hands more outward in transition I produce some better results. My pivot is always a problem, as my right leg and hip issues keep me from adding flex and getting deeper with the right leg and hip. Instead I usually straighten my right leg and lean out onto my left, lifting up a bit in the second half of the backswing. My thought now is to add flex to the right leg while moving my arms more outward and away from me in the backswing, then open up hard with my hands moving almost straight outward starting down. We will see what happens when it counts.
