With my 9-iron, I play the ball towards the back of my stance.  Granted this was at my lesson trying to learn to move my weight forward, and looking at older videos I have on here, I think its progressing.   I play many courses now, not just my "home", and I hover between -3 and +3 most rounds.  I play 36+ holes and hit 300+ balls on the range each week.  I won't play until I'm comfortable enough with what I'm working on at the range.  My last round was 9 holes, before...
A little too much head movement on the down swing.  Otherwise this looked all right to me. This was taken during my lesson on the 24th.  We are working on getting my weight more forward at impact.  I think it worked well here.
Well, after 14 years of not taking lessons and being over-proud to be self-taught, I've finally decided to see an instructor and really try to nail down my game.  I've gotten myself to a +3 at one point, but it's not good enough and I believe I can do no more to progress further without help.     First thing he did with me was change the loft on my putter from 5.5° to 3°, something I've never thought about, and I noticed an immediate difference in the way the ball rolls...
  This is my new swing I've been working on.  It's working out very well so far.  Just need to tighten a bit more on the back swing, but my follow through is what I'm really focusing on.  Where my club face should point mostly upwards just after impact when the club is parallel to the ground.   Sorry about the video, my buddy didn't really know what he was doing.  I'll try to get a better one next time.  But its just a preview of what I'm working on.
That would be an interesting thread!  For me it would be likeDriver: 390yds3-wood: 3203driving iron: 2654iron: 2405iron: 2256iron: 2157iron: 2008iron: 1859iron: 170PW: 16052: 13556: 12060:100 Gosh! IF only I could do that every time... 
From my round of 64 the other day, I have to say the best shot was on the par 5.  I hit a 315yd drive ish to be 190 out from the green.  Pulled a 6-iron with the ball a couple inches above my feet, wind slightly left to right and into my face.  I hit a beauty, it started just left edge of green and came back perfectly.  Left me a nice 4footer for eagle!
It is! I've shot a 65 as well.  But this round felt more real because of my putting.  Last time I was just sticking everything really close.
WOW!! I wish I video logged this round I had today for you all to see.  I was sinking almost all my putts today.  I sunk 3 or 4 20footers.  The 2 distinct putts I missed were each about 15ft, one of them hit the cup and did a 180 and the other just missed the edge.  It was lights out today.  15/18 GIR, not sure about the fairways but I only missed a few, and 27putts for a round of 64 (-8 on a 72.9 6750yds)!!!! WOOOOO!!!  18 was a little difficult knowing what I was at...

Well just got over some recent vertigo, and managed to get out and play today.  It was very windy! The ball was swaying a little on the greens without me touching it.  But, I managed to play well.  I've decided to give up on hitting a draw with anything and play the fade. It's more consistent and i don't have to mess with stuff to get it going.  Played blue tees today, which is around 6300yds, 70.3 rating.  I didn't want to play the tips because I wasn't sure how...
