Definitely was an impressive effort by Carey. Felt like the Habs were killing penalties all night. It's the usual problem for Montreal, a total lack of top-end talent outside the goal crease.
Glad to see the effort anyway.
Just my first glance at it. It looks like your hands don't get down fast enough to allow the club head to swing out at the ball. With your amount of turn at impact, you are pulling the club path left. There is a finite distance between the club head and the left shoulder. If you are way open at impact then it will pull the club left.
not you.. the "you" there was the people who were coming in to say "Oh, I putt much better with it", they are the outliers if they actually do and it is not just confirmation bias, sorry about the confusion there.
I learned the flop shot this season for a lot of the shots around the green out of this rough. If it is an uphill shot this tight I will hit a flop. Downhill though has not worked out. Blading it has happened and developing the touch when it is such a soft shot. The wedge doesn't get thru the rough
Way back in the 70's & 80's when I worked at a golf course i\I was taught the pin could not be any closer then 8' from the edge of the green when setting them. Maybe that has changed because it sure feels like the pin is closer then 8' to the edge when I am looking at this.
I will practice this shot. This is different then the flop I have been trying.
Obviously the priority is put it on the green. Since the tendency is to get cute and stab, make sure to follow through a bit. Depending on how long the grass is, i might go for the toe down, chip like swing to give it a little pop.
Probably not a flop. Don’t need to go far and if there is uncertainty in the thickness we don’t want the face closing.
