There's always one!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Theres always one aspect of golf that ruins my game!
My driving used to be my weakest link, to the point where I wouldnt even bag a driver, I decided I had to sort this aspect out this yr, so I researched, had a driver made, (suitable for me) and started hitting the range, within 2 months my driving is became the strongest part of my game, I'm not a big hitter, I concentrated on accuracy and can now hit 220-240 straight 8/10 and the other 2 are usually around the edge of the fairway, I'm delighted! I though my scores would come down! But....
then my short game turned to shit! My puttings ok.. ish! I can usually sink anything within 4-5'
But I'm terrified of any pitch within 50yrds!
This was usually a good part of my game that would make up for my poor driving!
So now I'm trying to find time to dedicate soley to the very short game, I researched, bought new sand and lob wedge, (suitable bounces for me) I can connect well with both but I really need to discipline my self with carrying 4 wedges! I like the lob, but i think im using it too much and it's costing me!
But I'm improving slowly and getting used to them!
But now I'm noticing my long irons aren't as good!
I think it's a vicious circle!!!
As I improve one aspect, another aspect suffers!
I guess what I'm saying is.... I dont think its good to soley practise on one aspect of the game for a length of time!
And that what I need to do is reduce my workload to part time, so I can practise more on ALL aspects simultaneously!
But I'm pleased to say my driving is still strong
And I put this down to set up/routine!

Hey don't get cocky with your driving. You're only a few bad swings away from that falling apart too. Kidding! Congrats on the improvement. I hear you completely.

I usually hit about half the fairways and play a decent scramble game to get mid 80s. But one day I hit all but 2 fairways- 240ish length.... But my iron play/short game tanked and couldn't take advantage. Despite playing my best ever from the tee, I shot 88.

It's always something that gets us.
