I wish I lived closer to Erie.
I definitely do not mean to sound bitter. I really do appreciate all of the guys who have helped me so far. Even my untrained eye can see the improvement in my swing so far. Again thanks.
Sorry @Ernest Jones for the thread hijack.
Both of you have decent swings @14ledo81 and @Ernest Jones, I think the one thing we should remember is that it is frustrating seeing someone who has a natural talent for putting the ball into the hole in the least number of strokes and have the most horrendous looking swing to boot. There are so many examples of this that I could write for another 20 pages and not be done.
What we should keep in mind is that we are developing a swing that we can keep for a lifetime. It is also a nicer looking and feeling swing. Part of the fun is understanding our swings, and hitting balls in a satisfactory manner. We should just grace ourselves with the enjoyment we get from learning to swing the most efficient way we can, and enjoy the fluidity of the motion it creates.
Scores will eventually come our way, and distance will come as well. Just take heart and keep up the good work and training. It's is starting to work for me, and I am sure if it works for me, it will work for both of you two.
