Lol I totally left that part out. Thanks for mentioning that! So my miss is to the right and the reason is because my club face is open at impact. I don't remember the exact degree's but it's not much normally, but when I miss big..yeah the face of the club is obviously open more.
The answer to both of these questions for me is still yes. Last year I was a 14.7 or something, right now I'm a 12.0. I continue to put in work towards improvement so I don't see that downward trend from year to year ending anytime soon.
