Yes, I know and consequently have abandoned that. I didn’t mean to suggest otherwise. What I meant to say was that now, while I set my grip with the club in the air in front of me, I feel like it becomes more palmy after I address the ball with club near/on the ground. I suppose I need to tighten my grip a little or maybe it’s just the feel and not real. Nonetheless, I’ll continue to be cognizant of it.
Actually there is a nice little 9 hole course nearby that's all Par 3, ranging from around 120 to 200 yards..but it's closed for COVID. But thanks for the tip, I will make it a point to play there asap.
I think they are easily enough to start with.
Personally started golf by playing a short par 3 "practise" course for first summer with only a 9 iron and putter. Longest hole was 120m if I remember correctly, really recommend those courses if you have one available. I think my short game was better after that first summer than it is now. 🙈
