I generally need to improve my ball striking, but don't we all Per Arccos, ranked from most to least strokes lost per round:
I need to improve my mid range iron game. I play at a low to mid single digit handicap level for approaches shorter than 125y or 175+y. But I lose 2.6 strokes a round on approach shots 125-175 yards.
I lose too many drives (as in, penalty strokes), even though my non-penalty drives are often awesome.
Improve on those damn 6-9 foot putts. I lose 1.4 strokes a round just on those!
Improve on very short short game. I'm playing almost at scratch from 25-50 yards but lose 1.4 strokes per round on shots 0-25 yards.
In terms of what I'll actually do, I'll still spend most of my time trying to improve my ball striking. But I'll add in some sessions pitching from just off the green and need to get back on the putting green at all!
Well... The other key insight I remember from that video is that pros do very little adduction through A2~2.5, and in fact many pros abduct slightly as they use their SI joint to push out and create even more width through that point in the swing. The pro adduction happens in the ~A2.5-A4 portion of the backswing (well, of course then there's much more in the downswing but we're talking backswing)
Like @Chris BrooksI also get coached by Erik so I mention that as a back drop to this.
I'm directly stealing this from @Chris BrooksImprove driver speed to a 105 average by August 1, 2023.
I will use The SuperSpeed system as I already have it.
Goal is 105 by August 1 2023, just like Mr. Brooks.
I'm turning 52 this year. So I'm much younger than Chris. 😁 Even so, 105 average should be attainable. I average better than 102 right now. I too, will strive to get to 105.
I'm also going to include a stretching program (which will be monitored by my 8 year old daughter) to help me get there.
The stretching should also help me as 2022 was the first season I can remember where I've had so many injuries.
Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts (I did not steal this one from @Chris Brooks, it just so happens I need the same thing.)
Current overall stokes gained are -2.5 putting, –2.56 on 0–10 feet. (I'm actually gaining strokes on 10-30 feet.) when measured vs a 5 HCP. It's actually pretty close to the same vs Scratch.
The goal is getting to even SG vs a 5HCP.
Improve my wedge play.
I would say the one constant in 2022 was that my wedge play was bad.
My stokes gained 50-100 yards against a 5HCP is -1.7
The goal again is to get to even SG vs a 5HCP.
I like what @saevel25 does with his habit goals. I would like to incorporate some of that into these goals. Especially the last 2 goals of improving short putting and improving my wedge play. As of right now I don't have a plan other than to go get a lesson on both of these areas week after next. When I return from that lesson I will update this thread and include my plan and/or my habit goals.
You missed the point. A foot in the air can be tough to pinpoint on the ground.
And as Daniel said, you can score with your head, so…
And people have two feet. So that's two body parts. 😉
That's not true.
It's really not. I've played soccer since I was 3. It's not "too much."
Again, you've missed the point… You can score with your head. Or knee. Or chest. Or butt.
So I think…
There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour.
There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.
