Anyway, Im finally getting serious about golf. I have played off and on since I was 5 when my mom worked at a driving range. When I say off and on though, I mean multi year gaps and casual playing, maybe once or twice a year.
However, my future uncle in law has sucked me in for good; taking me out to play some rounds and he even bought me a second hand set of clubs - I'm hooked.
Now I'm also a new father and I can only play a round or practice once or twice a week for now while he's a tot and I need to maximize my practice time. So, I'm headed to the range sunday for a jumbo bucket of balls, which is over 200 plus balls for 20 bucks. There is a chipping and putting green that I use to.
I just never know what I should focus my time on. I normally spend two to three hours when I'm at the range between the bucket and green. Any suggestions?
I'm one of those ex baseball players. I was a switch hitter but I play right handed. I'm odd For a lefty, I don't like it down and in - so its right handed.
On the course I'm sporadic at best. this is normally due to me pulling my head. Once my head is in place though, I strike it well considering not having the 100000s of golf swings under my belt most do.
my drives are anywhere from 2 meter dribblers to 270+ meter bombs. But, I avg 250 meters in the air on 60% of my drives - the range ends on an 10 foot incline at 250 meters which I normally pelt or hit over. then I get a lot these low line drives at around 200 meters I don't want 30% and the wtf the other 10%
After the driver I may hit my rescue club a while. normally straight low and around 200 meters with the occasional snap hook.
I hit everything off the grass minus the driver btw.
then ill switch to my 7 I hit around 150 meters at 3/4 power.
then to the 9 ill float 120-130 at 3/4 meters.
finally my pitching wedge ill hit at the 100 meter mark at 3/4 power before going to the chipping green to mess with the sand wedge and putter. It's my birthday in a week and ill be adding a 60 degree this Sunday.
now my irons are around the target 30% of the time the majority though I'm always left, right or behind by 15-20 meters. not because of slices or hooks but aim idk. I will have the ocassional snap hooks, bad angled, dirt catching bs shots and dribblers .
my putting is atrocious. 2-4 puts is the norm it seems. I misread greens constantly and I'm not sure how to improve this or what i can do to be more consistent overall with all my clubs
I mean I was up by 10 shots with two holes to play and I ended up coughing up a tie. Ill be on the green in two and walk away with double and triples. ill drop a 12 every now and then too. there's normally one to two double diget holes on my score card
does anyone have home exercises I could do too to help?
any suggestions? thanks
