Once I get on grass (especially on wet ground) that same impact is fat enough to be a disaster. When I practice off of my mat at home I always also hit some balls off of the ground just to make sure I'm not grooving impacts that are not going to work on the course.

Yeah, I know what you mean, that's the danger of practicing on mats. That is why I always lay a strip of masking tape behind my ball so I can monitor my swing bottom.

 

I'm thinking that 3/4" while FAR from ideal shouldn't be too much of a disaster on the occasions that it happens, I mean it's not like I'm hitting 4" behind the ball and laying sod over it.

When it shows up the most for me is with a sand or gap wedge. That sharp leading edge can really grab the ground if the ground is soft.

I don't even carry a 60 degree in the winter time for that reason and whenever possible I use a pitching wedge with more of a Steve Stricker stroke. Even when I am short sided I am usually better off with that technique and a longer putt in bad conditions.

I think it has improved, still drifts around a bit but nowhere near as drastic as before and I'm back to making decent ball first contact again. 

 

I hear this Analyzr software is pretty great... ;)

Yeah, like that's gonna happen! Windows sucks more than your practice habits. :)

If you read any amount, I would recommend you do read the Harry Potter series.  It is not soley for children.  Either that, or I am just immature.

Yeah I know, my wife has read them all and is always trying to get me to read them, that and Fifty Shades of Grey.

 

FWIW I do read all the time, currently rereading a stack of John Irving books that I have always loved, and after close to 18 years I am almost finished reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. My current favorite author is Michael Chabon.

2 things I've learned from Analyzr:

 

1) I suck and have a ton of issues

2) I am steadily improving even in areas I'm not actively working on

 

And, DAMN, I need to get outta this cramped basement where I can make a full swing and followthrough!
