It happened to me last night, during league play. I hit off of the tee, blocked it right on a par 5. The ball went through a palm tree leaf, and trickled about 100 yards. A twosome on the 18th coming in must have played my ball, because after the other two of my threesome hit, all three of us went to the area we saw my ball head to. We found a Pinnacle. I was hitting a DT Solo with long green marks on the ball. The rough wasn't bad. Lost ball-not a good way to start...
I have an issue that may be similar, although it's on my right hand. It feels jammed to me as well, to the point of pulling it and releasing it, then shaking it out. Two things have helped. Changing my grip (in my case stronger), and using a firmer grip (yes firmer). Hope it helps!
~123 yds. Number 8 at Magnolia Plantation in Lake Mary, FL. Half swing/punch shot on my 9i, nice draw, rolled right into the hole. I wish my eyes were better, as I didn't see it drop.
Wash the grips-it helps a great deal. Also rotate gloves throughout the round. I have multi-compounds now and they are better than the Golf Pride solid black grip. But, I will bre trying a full cord Lamkin soon.
What is your focus when you are taking your practice swing? Is it different when you take your stroke? Perhaps focusing on the target, not the ball will help. For me, it's overswinging or trying to kill it-lunging at the ball. Sounds like you may be doing this, coming over the top, coming in steep, digging the divot. I wouldn't worry about taking a small divot on the practice and a small divot on the shot. Just fill them, and try not to take too many of them.
Are you missing 3 footers? If so, circle the hole with 6 balls at three feet (length of your putter), and don't leave until you make all 6 without missing-or set a time limit. Lag putting-develop feel. To develop feel, line up 20' from a target...a tee in the ground will do. Put another tee inline, 10 foot from you. Hit a ball and approach the far target. Hit the next ball, if it passes the previous ball, it's -1 point. If it's past the first tee, but doesn't pass...
Congratulations! 3 birds and 3 pars is great! Start making it a habit!
Congratulations! I can relate! If you feel the excitement of 1 under after 6 during the round, it is a good idea to ignore the score. Add it up afterwards. I know it's tough, but it was a requirement for me to break 80. 1 under through 6 shows that you are capable. That's a third of the way there... I am listening to the audio book Zen Golf. I definitely believe this will help me to find the zone, as opposed to waiting for it to come to me, and I highly recommend...
My best shots occur when I turn my body first, shifting my weight to my right foot's instep. My poor shots occur when I start with my shoulders, and my worst, when I start with my hands or wrists. I also struggle with coming to the inside by turning the wrists back, instead of hinging properly.
