Wanted to continue the theme of "smooth tempo" and just reinforce reps with lower clubs.
Hit a bunch of 5i and 3i, with the same tempo with on 3i and PW. That was a huge mental leap that I never made back in the day.
3 irons, I'm not getting the classic loft, but the balls are going straight.
And I am hitting a many pure balls in the sweet spot
Mis-hits are also going straight, which is good.
I hit driver today and was making clean contact on some balls.
Driver was going low, but straight. Some were dead straight.
If I am honest with myself, I could never hit driver in the Big Bertha era.
With Rocketballz, I could finally hit a driver, sometimes.
With smooth tempo, I got a taste of consistently ok drives. Very pleased!
For a new tweak, I de-lofted the club at address, and moved my hands ahead of the ball. I think this gave a feeling of a descending blow; by de-lofting, I was hitting crisp and getting a tad more loft, ironically.
Still thinking of starting the downswing with the hips to induce wrist lag, and I was hitting some pure balls.
Overall, quite pleased. And I am experienced enough to not expect this to translate directly to the golf course.
Going forward, more of the same.
Smooth tempo, hip rotation, etc
I am already smart about not making stupid decisions.
I can lay up with 7i from 220 and not go for the low risk 3W into a green hazard
Used to shoot 80's
Now, I shoot 100+
Goal is to break 90, or at least play the irons game like that.
I know the short game will not come back so quickly, if ever.
