Its already been mentioned but I will throw in my two cents.  I believe it was a book called Zen Golf, that described a philosophy of "Big Mind."  When I'm out on the range I can visualize the shape of my shot the rollout if I am around the green tree's, wind, etc.  On the course that one lesson I received that said to focus on one dimple on the back of the ball creeps in my head and all my effort and energy is to try to meet that one spot on the ball with my club....
I was thinking about something on those lines, varying clubs.  During my practice I spent more time bouncing from the range, to the pitching area and the chipping green then actually swinging the club.  I figured well when it comes to walking a course I sure will have that practice down.
I see the difference, thank you for the clarification.  I will take you up on your suggestion for mixing it up more at the range.  It's fascinating how our body gets locked in on something when we repeat a specific routine.I remember when I changed my routine from 8:00am to 12:00 pm, it took a little while before my 12:00pm felt like my 8:00 am. It sounds like mixing it up could provide a better transition for taking the range practice out onto the course.    Thank...
Interesting point about "feel is not real", anybody have any other thoughts on it?  I admittedly buy into the concept of marketing strategies where they sell me on things like: the feel or response of a golf ball, the feel or response of an iron.  If feel is not real, then is there no real difference between an oversized cavity back and a blade?      I digress, let me re-phrase my original post. During transitions on the practice range, going from a full swing to 3/4...
Hello,   Typically I start off practicing around the practice green with pitching and chipping.  Afterwards I hit about half a bucket with my full swing and notice when I go back to pitching and chipping my feel and rhythm is completely gone.  Anybody know why or how to make the transition?   Thanks! Phil
