I have been playing golf for a little over a year now, and recently was given some advice on how to better position my club and grip.
The advice was awesome because I am hitting between 30-50 yards or more on occasion than I used to, however I my scores are getting worse because now I dont know what to do once I am close to the green.
I used to have do the following:
LW; 35-50 yards out
SW 50-75 yards out
DW 75-100 yards out
PW 100-110 yards out
and so forth, however now I am hitting as follows:
the bottom line is that I am very happy with the distance that has been added and am now just about the longest hitter compared to most others I play with.
MY PROBLEM is I would rather have lower scores than longer distance, however with the way I was shown how to" LAG" the club and create "CLUB HEAD SPEED"....I am now no good within 100 yards and it eats my good drives and am headed to double boggies, etc... when before I was shooting bogey golf (which I was happy but not thrilled with).
I have tried using the 8 from out the green, however since I never used it before it is really hard for me to calculate distance.
The obvious answer is PRACTICE....however I need advice on what would be the most appropriate practice drill in your opinions.
Thanks and look forward to learning more!!
