Found out my local driving range is still open so hit balls there today, this is by far the best I have ever hit the ball.
Irons were crisp, main swing thought is keeping my elbows close together on the way back/top of the backswing. Worked on some knock down shots, have a good feeling for taking 10-15 yards off my PW,9,8 irons now.
Driver was the best it's ever been, very neutral ball flight, not much curve in either direction. Main thought for driver at setup/address is make sure I stand far away from the ball, I realized today that in my last 2 rounds I was standing way too close to the ball. Main swing thought is during the backswing really load weight into my right heel, feeling like my right toes are coming off the ground slightly (they aren't really) and make sure my back/torso are leaning away from the target.
Spent a bit of time working on 50-75 yard wedge shots too, I now have a swing length/feeling dialed in for 50,60, and 70 yard carries.
I watched the replay of the 2018 Par-3 contest earlier today. I watched it the night it happened -- taped it, avoided spoilers, watched when I got home. Magical then and magical now.
I'm watching the '86 final round right now. I obviously know what happened (I'm wearing a yellow polo today because I knew this was airing), but I don't think I ever watched more than a highlight reel of this before. It's amazing. Nicklaus is on #16 as I speak, minus however many year tape delay this is on.
UPS just delivered the mat! Yay!! I was bored out of my mind so I didn’t wait for my husband to haul it to the backyard for me. Geez was that mat heavy! Already hit a few balls and it feels great to be swinging again!! Just need to figure out the correct tee height and I will be good to go!
I know, right? How much would it cost to hire security if everyone is still paying dues? I know the course that @NM Golf is at has hired security to keep the yahoos off so we should do the same.
My golf mat just arrived so I am going to set it up and hit a few in my backyard!
Most metronome apps have a "Tap Tempo" feature. You can do the drill without the metronome and get a feel for the rhythm by either counting or making a beep or click noise when the putter crosses the low point. keep that rhythm up and tap it into the metronome as a starting point.
