Yeah, I actually have time to stand there and watch it hang there before dropping to the target. I feel like a pro staring it down! Start lines are still a bit shaky but keeping my arms very passive feeling in the downswing seems to give the best results, any attempt to control the face leads to inconsistency there. The good news is that when I start the ball left of the target I get a big hook and when I start it too far right I get a straight push so I feel like I'm doing well with the path. I think I'm getting close to being able to set up with the face pointing slightly to the right to avoid the hooks and I think that will also help me keep the path rightward as I have a subliminal cue that the path has to farther right than the face is pointing. In any case, I'm not going to worry too much about that stuff for now, just going to keep working on snapping the left shoulder UP and OPEN as the first move coming down.
Also, prior to the Erie trip I had lost all ability to get my long irons and hybrids up in the air, that's no longer the case as I have been getting almost as much height with my 4H as I am with my 8 iron.
