Hey guys, just thought I'd post something that I experienced today. Here's a little background first. I've been taking lessons with a CPGA certified pro with video analysis. He's taught valuable lessons and improved my swing ten fold. Effortless power. He's taught me about everything from generating lag to ball position, grip, stance, pre-shot routine, swing plane, you name it and it's the best money I've spent when it comes to golf. My swing speed with irons has gone from 68mph to 80mph and with a driver from 85mph to 105-108mph. With his simulator, I can now drive the ball an average of 270 yards, which I'm extremely proud of. I've worked very, very hard over the winter in his studio and an indoor range.
Today I went to a local simulator with a friend to "play" a round. This simulator was incredibly inaccurate. My drives were in between 140 and 150 yards with a hard slice. My 9 iron was 70 yards, 7 iron was 90 yards and this is when struck pure with a solid swing. I complained to the owner about his simulator and of course his response was, "it's your swing, not the software." My buddy was having the same problem and he's a good player, single digits. Has any one else experienced poor accuracy when it comes to a simulator? If it was something that I was doing in my swing then I would have no problem laying the blame on myself but that wasn't the case. Even if I wasn't swinging at my best, I could still hit my driver farther than 140 yards. That's ridiculous!! Just needed to vent and find out if any one has ever experienced something like this before.
This really bothers me because I know how hard I've worked this winter and I know how I can hit a ball and it's definitely not that poor. Even before lessons I didn't hit the ball that bad. This had to be the simulator, right?
