Looks like Dan is figuring out a little more how to swing. As he writes today, his swing is now about 50/50 where he can really connect by using his body and not mainly his arms and hands. I can't wait to see his next TrackMan update to see if his numbers improve significantly.
Heck, I'd take a handicap update too. He is nearing the halfway point of 5000 hours left, and it's obvious to me he's not going to get anywhere near close to his goal. But he still seems confident that he can jack up his club speed 10% (from 265yd carry to 290yd carry, he says). He plays with a +handicap regularly, so he knows that there are lots of people who already at that skill level. I wonder how he thinks he will distinguish himself from the many, many thousands of scratch golfers out there who can already pound it that far.
Anyway, here's the latest, in case you're interested. Finally an upbeat note after some poor outings, but he doesn't mention any specific scores or good rounds.
Just looked him up. 5.6 as of 1 August. Only .3 better than 1 August 2012.....
Just as a point of reference, he and I play off of about the same index. I'm down .9 from last August. Not all that impressive either. But then, I'm not doing anything except playing golf whenever I can.....hopefully twice a week when things work out.
Of course, I've got the added advantage of the combined support and genius of the members of this site, so I guess I do have a big leg up over him!
