Lesson #1 After a 20 Year Break. This One Thing Was Still as Good as Ever.




Lesson #1

Got some fundamentals back into my head. 

Squared up my address. 
My natural stance was slightly open. Now, I just close it a bit, and I am square.

Keeping club face vertical/closed on takeback. 

Trying to loosen up and release wrists at contact.
Like whip cracking the wrists at contact area.

I tried to transfer the "smooth whip, snap the wrist" mindset to the longer clubs. 
Like most rec hackers, I think I have a tendency to muscle/jerk the long clubs, instead of smoothly letting the club do the work. 
I think that showed a glimmer of hope, as I hit a few 5 irons clean and smooth, without feeling like I was trying to crush the ball.

I was hitting my PW very nicely, 100 yards, smooth and clean.  Not over swinging.  Pure strikes.
I was hitting 7,5,3 irons progressively worse.  Thin, skulled, sliced, toe, etc.   
Nothing like the wedge.  Like a different player
