The "OMG I didn't think one could suck at golf this much! Positive thoughts don't leave me now!"... - Page 2

So, I was supposed to play my first round of the year today but my buddy cancelled so couldn't make it.

However, going to try and get out Thursday and a bit nervous about how I'll do and see how the swing change I made will impact my scoreing.

So, I don't know if anyone reads this thread but just wanted to say that Evolvr has been of a lot of help to me.

 

I had only played 5 rounds before today, the last being two weeks ago, and decided to play an executive course today.  Obviously because it is an executive course I used my irons most of the day.  I shot a 51 on par 30 on the front 9 and a lot of the tee shots went a lot further than I'm used to and I'm convinced that it's because my swing has improved dramatically that I have to figure out my distances (I hit into a net as practice rather than go to the range).  I started clubbing down a club and it was still going long so I started clubbing down two clubs and it was better.   On the back I shot 9 over par which for me is amazing.

 

I'm thrilled that the work I've been doing is, at the very least, helping me with distance. 

 

Now if only my short game would cooperate. :-\

Oh, definitely will. The proof is in the pudding. I feel bad for my instructor, Stephen, because he's had me working in a particular piece for a while now and has tried at least three different methods to try and have it ingrained in me. Haha

That's not atypical. It doesn't mean you're not making any progress, just that over time the things we say change a little based on how we think you're perceiving them.

For me, the MOST important though on the course is "never stop playing golf". What I mean by that is to basically stay in the moment. It doesn't matter how shit your last shot was, your next one is an opportunity to get closer or into the hole. Keep grinding ALWAYS until the final putt drops. Always think about the shot in hand and never give up on a hole.

 

100% agree - half shots until you're hitting the ball consistently, then ramp it up ... gradually.    Taking big swings when things aren't going well never ends well
