Well said. Kyle as you may know, my 1st lesson with Mike and Dana was last Jan. I'm still trying to get my pieces down pat..repetition of those pieces and doing them correctly is the only way I'm gonna get em right. If I go to the range, ball flight, distances are Not what I'm even thinking about. The drills, to make sure I'm doing them right, as there are mirrors at the range, I check myself about every 10 drills. I may hit a full shot once after at least 30 balls I've hit doing my drills, and then it's at about 30 to 40%. Even from my last lesson a couple of weeks ago, the drill Mike and Dana gave me, it was real hard just to make decent contact, i.e. out of 50 balls, I hit 2 that were real good. Now I can at least make contact 90 out of 100 balls, and I make good contact about 40 to 50 out of the same 100 balls, they go higher, and further, though that's not the goal, it's Solid contact, so I know I'm on the right track. So, in the last 2 weeks I haven't hit a full shot at anything above 40%. I watch all these guys hitting great shots, going way out there, yet I have to refrain, knowing that when I can again smack some balls, they should be way better than what I do now.
Focus Kyle..it's the best way to improve.
Huh..sorry for the long winded post, must be the Dad instinct in me..lol
