Well, I finally played 18 holes yesterday after not playing in what seems like forever. Overall, I was happy. My irons were really close. My contact was much better on them, but I just had a straight push most of the day with my irons. I would close the club face a bit and get the draw but wouldn't think about it on the next iron shot. I was really happy with my irons. My distance hasn't gone anywhere....as a matter of fact, I have gained some. I am sure this is from more compression and hands forward in my swing. I was hitting my 9i from 145-150 with my normal swing tempo.
My woods on the other hand were completely terrible! I had one good drive all day and that was on a hole with a tree right in the middle of the fairway and I nailed the tree. I had no clue where my driver was going to end up. I hit push slices, pull hooks, worm burners, etc.... Very inconsistent. And that was one of the main things that hurt my score. My 3w was the same.
I didn't have very good distance control but that was expected....especially since I thought my distances would be shorter.
My pitching and chipping were way off. Good contact and path, but distance was off. I contribute this to better contact as well.
My putting was pretty descent. Putting has never really been a problem though.
I think in my latest practice session, I was really over doing the front knee toward the ball on my back swing. I tried not to do that so much while playing and it seemed I made better contact. I'll have to get that and my woods on film. All in all....I am definitely on to something and once I can more consistent and start hitting my woods correctly, OH BOY!! I have a feeling I will be bombing some drives!
