I'm a hitter (or as my friend says, a trapper), for every club except for the driver.  i swing my driver.  i made the switch this season and i'm loving it.  after years of golf, i basically went from 100+ to 85ish this season.  I feel like I'll be breaking 80 by the end of next season (probably jinxing myself).

Love this thread. I've been taking lessons for two years and just couldn't ever get the timing of the left arm pull, then lag, then release. Hit some great shots but the number of absolute turds never went down despite tons of drills/practice/video.

Recently came across the idea of the "flying wedge" and it has been a revelation. Keep the wedge, swing along the plane of my right forearm, and push with the right arm. So much more solid and consistent!!!

Feels so much more natural with a right-hand dominant "hit" than trying to pull down with the left side, which never felt comfortable to me.

I'm hitting away and loving it!

Not sure what you mean... How what works?

By the way, the dress is white and gold.


I hope the Royals win the pennant.
