No wonder that the golf courses get longer...   Found a list of yardages for the "reasonably proficient 40-year-old male golfer of average height" hitting "modern" lofted clubs into still wind:     4-iron, 170 yards, 155 meters 5-iron, 160 yards, 146 meters 6-iron, 150 yards, 137 meters 7-iron, 140 yards, 128 meters 8-iron, 130 yards, 118 meters 9-iron, 120 yards, 109 meters   No. 3 hybrid, 185 to 190 yards, 169 - 173 meters No. 4 hybrid, 180 to...
+1 for videoing your swing.   Did you consider online lessons? I can recommend http://evolvr.thegolfevolution.com good value - check it out.
OK, two weeks and two rounds later - none the wiser.   Rounds start just great. Straight shots, optimal distance, center hits, pars and bogeys. Perfect for me.   But then the swing with the 3w and 3h slowly falls apart from hole 4 and on. Tolerable 10 yard pushes off the tee first, by hole 10 I hit up to 50 yard push slices and off-center hits. It translates to the longer irons with fat or off-center hits, too. Fat is bad, off-center is 15 yards less distance,...
I do not mean to offend you with junior golf blabber. But I am still smiling after have seen this video a while ago. No voodoo, simple "truths", understandable. Nice prep talk most of us should have received while in school. But it is never too late. I few Zen ideas should be applicable to golf, too.     PS: How do tour players handle their issues? Just watch the blow-ups every Sunday on TV. Why does Charlie Wi and a lot more do not close the deal on Sundays? At...
Yep, right, on the course things have to work and thinking has to stop. Thats why I was asking for a fix. I will aim even more to the left the next time for the rest of the round and stop thinking about it.   The analysis on the driving range helped to analyze the why. Since changing to S&T two years ago, the push was always an issue, albeit a small one. I worked the last months on getting the right arm higher and the left arm "in front" of my body at to top of the...
Well, you have to ask yourself why club face and path are on the same in-to-out line at impact. You can work on both to improve the ball flight.   The best is to video your swing and have it looked at either here or by your pro. Without video it is really hard to analyze.   Here the chart I have always in my bag (to remind me and show to my friends when discussing ball flight). Closing the club face (stronger grip) should in theory help to produce to a draw (8 ->...
I consider myself way post Faldo...   My arms at P4 look like the Strech pic - and he is not happy with it, too.
OK, got video. I am swinging too far back, the left arm is too low. Not new, but I thought I fixed it over the past weeks before moving to other things last week.    Fix: point the right thumb down the stance line at P3, to the right ear at A/P4 - feel-wise, that is. And let the flexing right arm do the lifting from P3 on. And a few things more on the down-swing.   Ah, I begin babbling to myself again. Well, I need a caddie with a cam shadowing me on the course....
:D   Been back to my evolvr lessons 18 months ago. I find that I understand things way better now. OK, the 6 months winter injury related break left a lot time to read up on things.   And yes, I have to put some work in on the right wrist action on the downswing. I still tend to forget that on the course.   Next time I try to quick fix the push "watching" the hands a little closer.
Grip should be OK - I will check next time.   My golf bible says "but of the club" could be a possible cause. I worked on elbows (closer together) lately, which made my results with the driver way better. The iron swing seems to suffered a bit from exaggerated moves for the driver.   So it is back to the range...
