Well after settling on my sweet 16 I've made some discoveries.
My 58° is OK around the greens... From say 30 yards and in. Anything outside of 30 yards I play a different type of shot with a 50° or 54°.
The top of the bag is a non issue because I rarely have a 4w, 3h, or 4i shot anyway (until we start using the back tee on 16)...
5i is a little dicey sometimes but overall I hit it pretty well.
6-PW, AW and 54° SW are pretty solid... I hit my 54° well up to 90 yards. My gap wedge is about 105-110... I hit both of them well with 9:30-2:30 swings. My wedge is 125... 9I is 140 with a good full swing. 8I is 150 7I 160 6I 175 5I 185 4I 195 3h 210... Don't really hit the 4w and the Driver is 250-260 when hit solid... Game Golf is a little skewed because it is including some punch outs and chunked shots. But it's a work in progress... I'd like to be confident in my 58° from 50-60 yards... But it needs work.
Here's a random "lake ball" I found then hit recently. The shell peeled off from a hybrid strike. At first, I thought I duffed it, but it still went almost the right distance.
I keep it in my bag just in case an opponent needs a ball
Worked on chipping this morning. Focused on not "scooping" and making a positive strike.... More worked on the motion than anything... And it's getting better. It's the weakest part of my game. If I can even get my scrambling up around 40%, I'm easily into the 70s.
Ok I've worked on keeping my head from coming forward on the downswing but have struggled to keep it from going up. Any ideas or drills to keep me from doing this? Here are couple of videos to show what I mean.
Also I seem to be letting that elbow get back again so I'll work on that.
