After I started trying to incorporate some S&T principles I read on this forum, I shot a 93 in early June. Then it was back to a couple of the usual scores until the book arrived and I read it and hit the range for a couple of sessions trying to incorporate the principles. My last three rounds at my usual course have been 94, 90, and 89.
My OOB and mishits are down dramatically. My accuracy with the driver has been greatly improved. My friends have been commenting on how good my shots "sound" coming off my irons. Even when I face a muddy or other less favorable lie, I usually make good contact on the downstroke before the club hits the mud.
My short game and putting have always been "strengths" for me, at least relative to the other areas of my game (lots of scrambling practice after all those mishits and errant tee shots I used to have!), and neither of those areas has improved by more than a few strokes per round this year. I've put a new set of irons into play, but I was already seeing improvement from the S&T while playing my old clubs.
Now, I very well may have seen similar improvement with any other methodical approach to rebuilding my swing and/or lessons. But S&T was the method I've used this summer, and it seems to have paid off nicely.
