Question: The way I come square while maintaining proper inclination results in quite a bit of extra torso-ahead-of-the-hands motion. My guess is that this is a good thing. But two things are happening that concern me:
1. I feel that my swing is kinda wild. I am whipping around so much with my arms so loose that I occasionally have crappy contact.
2. There is a considerable fade worked into my swing where it used to be a draw. I prefer not to have this.
Are these natural side effects of learning this movement that I can later work out?
I'm going to try to take some videos this weekend.
I bought some of the SA Shield things. They had a buy one, get four free. I paid $20 for one, $5 for shipping, and $1.50 for tax. So $26.50 and I have five buffs.
They're fairly breathable, but obviously should still be trapping moisture. My current masks are THICK. Nothing comes out of them, which kinda stinks. And I sound funny when I talk, muted and mutated.
Most respectable golf courses have dressing rooms where you can change clothes, take a shower etc. Just like if you are playing football you take a shower afterwards before you go to a dinner.
Eating dinner is not a sport activity where you just have to live with people exorting themself and sweating while playing 🙂
Which clubs do you have? My long irons certainly weight more then my wedges 🙂
Have the very same issue with my old ping i3. The clubheads feels heavier then any modern club I tried. I don´t have an issue with it on my short irons I actually enjoy being able to feel where the clubhead is but 3 and 4-iron the long shaft just make them feel much heavier and already in the back swing I feel I don´t have full control. Longer irons demand more speed to get airborne due to less loft but the weight of them make it tougher to generate that speed. And it feels like if I am not set up correctly I am not strong enough to correct before impact. I very seldom hit them well.
I solved it by getting new irons with hotter faces that just go longer. Two clubs on average longer! some of it is stronger lofts but they still go high thanks to a lower cg and the trampoline effect they got. Its a lot easier to hit then my ping i3 i5 which I could hit decently most of the time. If I where stronger I would have an easier time coping with the i-3 of course. That would probably help more then anything if you have the time for it.
I did try graphite on a set of Wilson D300 and it make a ton of a difference on swing weight. Felt ridiculous on the back swing like lifting just the shaft but I can see myself getting used to it and certain it would help my swing speed. But currently don´t feel I need it though and preferr the feel of some swing weight. D7 despite all it´s perimetre weighting still have considerably less swing weight with it´s 80g shafts.
