and what went wrong in the swing if i get a bad shot.

 

On really bad shots I can and of course on perfectly hit balls on the sweet spot I can feel that. I can't tell on balls consistently just inside or outside of the sweet spot most of the time so if I feel like I am losing a few yards I usually look at my driver face to see where it is hitting.

no...spray the clubface.  I'd say for sure it's a training aid (so what?  if it's a 'practice' round, use it, learn what you can, don't post the score for handicap purposes - or do it at the range).  It cleans off pretty easy too.

 

at the indoor range, the balls are grimy a bit from all the wear.  If I start with a clean club face, it only takes a few shot to see my impact zone.  I think that's a bit more revealing because it shows the stain after several balls, not just one.  Surprising that the mark isn't very big.  I'll take pics today if I remember and post.  They show up fastest on the wedges - makes sense since it's more of an oblique impact...(i.e., it rubs)

(dirty balls are not a training aid, this also works, but it doesn't seem to be in the spirit of it, does it.  Then again, looking at your divot to see your club path seems out of line if that was the case - doubt anyone would call it cheating though.)

I tried playing with dirty balls but they just get too itchy.

Dirty balls and impact imprint: 7i - started clean - after only about 4 or 5 shots.  If you look at the clubface right after a strike, you can even see the dimples.

 

 

 

 

(just checking - who looked at this and turned their head sideways just because the clubface is?)
