Actually I remembered there is a golf facility nearish my house. Indoor simulators, like 8 outdoor heated tee boxes. So that's nice! def a pitching chipping and putting thing going on in my garage over the winter
I'm not part of the club since I will not remember to post here on a daily basis. But I do get a kid's club and pick it up for about 5 minutes almost every day I do not go to the range or play. Today was a range day - keeping the arms in front of me and connected with body is the primary issue, then smooth transition, get club in front with close elbows, weight forward, and turn to a full finish. Lots of wedges. Hit some drivers -- someone needs to review the new GBB - it is a beast.
Can I make a suggestion? Well I will anyway. Set yourself up for success, not failure. 1. When you go to the range work on your priority piece. Warm up, stretch. 2. Have a series of drills that you do to work on your priority piece. I do sets of five balls and take a little break in between each set to think about what I was doing. I'll do four sets of these per club, but break them into groups of two sets. I take frequent breaks. My range has 100 ball large buckets, and I'll work five clubs. Right now I'm working my LW, SW, PW, 8i, and 6i. Priority piece only. 3. I start with my PW > 8i > 6i > SW > LW, then repeat it. 4. When I hit my last ball in the each set that set is over. No matter what the shot looked like. When I hit the last ball in the series with the club that part of the drill is over. It's done. Gone. It doesn't matter if I hit a great shot or duffed it. Move on. Last ball of the bucket: it's over. Pick up the clubs and go home, or if the green is in good shape and you still want to futz around, putt. Then go home. But your drill is over. Done. Let it go. Don't go and hunt for an extra ball if you screwed up one. You don't get a mulligan on the course. You have to learn to let it go. So if you have a bucket of 60 balls, divide your practice for 60 balls. You can do a decent practice with that number of balls. When your bucket is empty it's over. You're done. Hitting balls is hard work. Maybe you're not ready to hit 200 balls yet? If you want to hit more, you need to work your way up to it. It's a repetitive motion. Playing golf is not. Do you follow me? I have to limit myself to 100 balls now and no more daily practice - every other day now and weight training in between due to injuries. So I have to be smarter about how I practice. There have been a time when my tray had like 20 balls in it. My goal was to hit 10 good shots in a row. I did it. I had 8 balls left. I put my club in the bag and left. I accomplished my goal. The drill was over.
I had a 50's dad, who was tight - so I grew up with a set of used Ladies Clubs from the time I was 12 until 22. They were Kenneth Smith Clubs! - a custom brand. My dad purchased them from the lady pro at a local club. They had real leather grips that unwrapped. I did hit my only hole in one with them in college.
