Probably boring for you guys but anyway...   I was given a link by an acquaintance yesterday to a site with a swing weight calculator. You weigh the club and then measue it's balance point and the calculator will spit out an approximate swingweight, the acquaintance assured me that the calculator was really quite accurate compared to the swingweights given by his clubmaker but I figured regardless it should work for comparative purposes.   My 8I that I like to hit so...
I had a fiddle over the weekend with the driver and the tape. I weighed out 2gm strips so i knew what I was adding.   4 grams of lead tape I started to feel the clubhead and 6 grams is on there now. It feels pretty good and it seems a lot easier to maintain my tempo. My backswing is feeling more compact and my follow through isn't jerky and abbreviated. Hopefully I can get to the range during the week and see how the feel translates to actual results. I might end up back...
 How else am I supposed to relax after these stressful events?
I have acquired some of this. Any pointers on its use. How many grams should I add to my driver as a base line?
I haven't been golfing much lately, my increasing frustration with my game has led me to do other things on the odd time I have had the opportunity. It seems for the longest time I have been one of those guys who just can't get off the tee to save himself. Give me three different tee shots and I'll find a way to hit it in three different directions. Conversely get me inside 170yards and I can play some handy golf for my handicap level. A real frustrating way to golf as I...
Played a short dog leg par 5 where the green is offset to make the hole kind of "S" shaped. Hit a solid drive. Pulled 7I and hit the shot I envisaged which flew high and carried some tall trees to the green for my first eagle putt in I don't know how long.   Hit that 7I just how I imagined. Very satisfying to execute on something with a degree of risk. Led to one of my infrequent birdies so that was nice.
 I think picking the ball you like best off your putter and sticking with that one ball is solid advice for us slower swingers/higher handicaps. I like and have played e6 a lot. I can still slice or snap hook 'em in the bush with my swing. They check up fine on full swing shots on the courses I play. Conversely they roll out a mile with my technique on the short stuff. If I use my head and play with that in mind (ie leave a full short iron/wedge to the green where possible...
I'm running with from when I pull the club from the bag and dropped myself in the 11-20 bracket.   Step behind the ball and get my target line, check my grip. maybe have a little 1/4 swing swoosh on the grass if they haven't been coming out great.   Walk around to address the ball. Double check club face is where I want it, offer up a small prayer and pull the trigger.
I had a good meltdown myself one time. I was all primed for a big 2 day tournament. Hooked the ball uncontrollably all day...and was really just simmering the whole way around after the first few holes.   By the time I hit me tee shot on the 13th to the left rough, hooked my second over onto the 14th fairway and almost killed the group on the 14th tee with my hooking third, that thankfully carried the tee, I saw red and gave my bag a great thump with the traitorous...
I've come to terms with most of my failures off the tee and from the fairway rough.   The one that really upsets me is wasting a good GIR, say inside 20', with a first putt that leaves you with with 6'+ to try and save your par.
