If the USGA put a cap on the tech innovation, there would be no incentive for anyone to buy a new set of golf clubs except when one broke. So what we'd see is introduction of planned obsolescence to keep the club manufacturers in business. Your shafts and club heads would start becoming so cheaply made they would break after three years of use so they could sell you a new set of clubs. Many amateurs have high club head speeds, but have difficulty controlling their shots and lack the talent necessary to play on the tour. So with the newest tech they'll be able to hit the ball 400 yds. If the average touring pro starts routinely hitting 415 yd drives they'll have to start playing with limited flight range balls. But as it is not all touring pros can drive the ball 300 yds. Where do you draw the line? Will this become like horse racing where you weight the horses to compensate for the weights of the jockeys? You limit the flights of the balls so that you level the playing field so that no one averages more than say an arbitrary 290 yd drive and you vary the ball per player? It'll get ridiculous.
Practice with a purpose. It might be due to the rapid fire hitting just to be hitting. What are you focusing on when your hitting? Are you taking full swings, working on drills? Have a priority when you practice within certain aspects of your game. At the range, I'll step off the ball and actually go through a pre-shot routine depending on what I'm working on. I don't really have this issue and if I start getting tired, or it's really hot out or something I may move to working on partial wedges with what feels like a "half swing". I'm sure you can get around it-
Yep this could be it!
I have to believe you're right about things changing soon for you. Sometimes it happens just about the time we start to lose hope. Yep. We'd better enjoy the process. If it was an easy journey, we'd likely lose interest.
Does this problem occur for anyone else? I was at the driving range today and hit like 200 balls because there was a lot of buckets people didnt finish off well i went to the driving range yesterday too and for some reason i keep having this problem that after i hit a decent amount of shots my grip and hands and overall swing starts to feel very awkward and i start to hit very bad. I dont understand why this is and it doesnt usually happen on a course but its annoying even though its at the range what happens is i cant square the club up right and when i bring my club in the backswing it just feels really awkward and not correct. I mean im guessing this is because its so many balls one after another and lack of focus but i mean is there any other reasons and does this regulary happen with people?
