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.
