Not an easy decision for me. Already 50 and set in my ways with an okay score. Scared to change. But my body said I MUST change if I want to continue to play. Did not want to admit that the experts on this forum knew what they were talking about. I beat the odds. I was the exception. Yeah right.
I used all the knowledge I have learned from this forum. All analogies diagrams and pics. I opened my mind took a deep breath and said What the h%&.
Long story short......STUPID MONKEY is all I thought as I went through the mechanics of my next shot .
I relaxed. I loosened my grip. I opened my club face ( omg that was the hardest thing Ive ever done) I put my right thumb in a neutral position. Closed my hips. Got closer to the ball. Said a prayer. Acted like I had 3 beers with my buddies and we were trying crazy shots on a bet.
Clutch time....Relaxed again. Used an abbreviated backswing to start with. Effortless. Turned my hips. Actually turned my wrists over..........
Stupid monkey. Stupid monkey. Stupid monkey........
OMG!!! I felt as if I had used NO effort. Barely felt the ball. Thought Id used no muscles. Straight up the range and landed at the 200 marker!!!
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!! You have no idea how grateful I am for what I have learned in this short a time on the forum. You trying to make me golfer or what?? LOL
Probably a 90 for awhile.
