So I will preface this by saying, I have a lesson scheduled on Tuesday. This Pro is part of the Jim Mclean school here in S. Florida and while I had tried a couple of pro's here in Miami, these group of coaches have significantly improved my game. I shot my FIRST birdie ever yesterday! I digress.
Since I've built my own golf net I've had the capacity to use it indoor comfortably to a 3hybrid realistically my 4hybrid. Can't tee it up with driver and swing inside the house and the 3 wood I'd have to swing softly (I don't want to decelerate) so those clubs get no practice. (may not be a bad thing because I have very little confidence in them and not sure if I am using a correct swing for these clubs)
I've become proficient with my irons and been recently working on impact position and having arms and weight forward...which has translated to solid contact on the ball and divots after the balls position not before. *EDIT* I may be putting or leaning too much weight forward for driver and 3 wood*
I treat my 3hybrid and 4 hybrid essentially like long irons and I connect with them and my other irons very well. (or much improved)
I went out today to the range to practice 3 wood and driver.my 3 wood I am attempting to use the same technique and hit down on it or have arms forward but I am very inconsistent sometimes duffing hard into the ground just before contact, sometimes when I do make contact it shoots out extremely low and just rolls out and sometimes I will make a solid clean contact that feels like a correct shot. I think, like with my driver, my tempo may be off and my position of the ball may be too forward. All in all extremely inconsistent.
My driver oddly enough went worse today at the practice session (being tee'd up) than my 3 wood from the turf.... :( If it wasn't for shots that would shoot out to the left (i'm a lefty) on a straight line (no slice) or i'd close my club face too much and I'd hook, to feeling the rubber tee when I'd hit it decently and only have it go 175 yards...my weight too far forward on the downswing (coming over my front knee)..to my tempo being too fast, to trying to hit up on it or hit down on it, I was just a mess.
I know, nothing I've stated will help you fix "my" shot (I should have recorded)...but if you could generalize on what I should know to be the difference from hitting a 3wood from the fairway to hitting the driver off the tee box I'd greatly appreciate it.
Lastly sorry for my long post, I had to somewhat rant and get out all the things I thought about after I came back from this practice session of just the 3 wood and driver.
