Hmmm, more time to work on golf?  I was curious about getting a part time job at a course several years ago, wondering if it would give me more time/access to use the course facilities for practice.

 

Anyway, does this mean the business is on hold, or what?

ya my funds ran dry haha. so once i start working and getting some money in I'm hoping to get it up and going

oh man. so i had a pretty good range session and a not so good round. the wind on the back 9 kinda sucked, but it was my swing getting crazy. i lost about 4 tee shots right because i got fast and was swinging hard. i did have about 4 tee shots that were exactly how i wanted tho so that was cool. i only hit 2 greens and 8 fairways. so i'll be at the range monday bright and early. my videos from the range will be up in a bit after i load them

Use the time to practice properly.

 

To make my point as strongly as possible, if you hit a ball over 100 yards in the air, you're doing it wrong.

 

And take your pictures and review the videos @mvmac made for you before you go.

yes that is a great idea. and i think i am doing it wrong. i grab my 6 iron to practice with and they go around 130in the air and sometimes more. i'll have to work on toning it down and focus more on swing and ball flight as opposed to some distance

IIRC, you were hitting the ball 40-60 yards during your lesson. That is how you practice too. Change the picture, make BIG changes or big FEELING changes, and change the picture.

I would even recommend taking less club, like an 8 or a 7 when doing your drills.

Yep

I find that an 8 iron works really well for drills. People at the range give me the dumbest looks when they see me hitting about 50 yds or so..Almost everyone there goes full blast, If you can't do it slow, you sure as heck can't do it fast..:-D

I was wondering, why an 8i? I use the PW for these drills. Should I be using an 8i or 7i?

Whew, I thought I was on the wrong track again or something. So, what would be the reason for using the 8i or 7i?

 

BTW, trying to do ball shaping has been the main culprit of my bad swings lately. I'm going back to creating a "normal" swing for a few months till I get comfortable doing the same thing every time to improve my ball striking.

I like an 8i, cuz I don't have to bend over as far...;-)  Plus, it's my goto iron...lol

I bend the same amount for every club, even the driver. The only difference for me is the angle of the shaft, and the distance the club head is from my feet. Seems more comfortable and consistent this way.
