Fair enough, I'll keep this in mind next time.I do think the results show a positive improvement as I went from 1 par to 4 and from 0% GIR to 33% GIR. All the GIR's were on Par 4 or 5s.But I get what you are saying.Brad
Not sure if you are looking for unofficial feedback, but I will provide it anway.
Shot two 9-hole rounds this week, one prior to reading this thread and one after. The second round I decided to go for the middle of the green on any shot outside of 80 yards (I'm a 16HC).
Here are the results:
Score: 47 (1 par)
Putt Avg: 1.8
3 Putts: 0
Par 3 Avg: 5
Par 4 Avg: 4.8
Par 5 Avg: 6.5
Score: 47 (4 pars)
Just my opinion, but if you can't translate it to the course then it doesn't matter how good you are on the range. I think many people play by the rule that if a Par 4 is under 400 yrds then you would be better off not hitting driver. From your description, a 280 drive leaves you 50 yards making the hole a 330 yd par 4.Next time you play the hole, if you are able, play 3 balls, one driver, one hybrid and one 5i. See which one results in a GIR, if they all do, which one...
Thanks for the feedback. In fact I was practicing that same drill that you included after taking this video. I can feel it in my left quad for sure when done right. When I swing I feel like I'm moving the hips forward but video proves me wrong. Need to work on the slide some more.Brad
@tristanhilton85, I'm still working on it. I have to be in Australia for business either the week of Feb 10th or the week of Feb 24th. Depending on when I go will influence this outing.
Thanks for thinking of me!
