Okay, so I had a really good range session yesterday. I even got to hit balls off GRASS!!!!!! Yahoo!
I didn't get any video. But judging from my divots and ball flight my swing path has improved.
The plan for the rest of March:
Get some more video.
Get some trackman numbers.
Continue to work drills to improve my release... it is still a power leak.
Continue to practice setting up with my feet square or even a bit open to my target line.
Confirm my swing plane. I think I'm starting to get very steep again. I'll need to confirm.
Maintain my the club face control gains I have made
Maintain the path gains I have made
Spend 1/3 of my range time working on where instead of how.
Golf season is getting close. I don't want to be in the middle of a bunch of swing changes and "thinking" about my golf swing on the course. I may actually try to develop a consistent pre-shot routine; I have never actually had one before.
I thought you said he was hitting a wedge????
Funny story, Carl.
So, 20-25 years ago, there was guy in my work golf league who always said he was a scratch player... at least that's what he told us. He also used to say he hit driver 300 yards (this was back when 300 yards was far.) We called the guy "half wedge", because every approach shot he'd say "This is a half-wedge for me". Every time I ever played with him, he'd say "Man, I don't think I've ever played this badly."
The other thing he'd tell us is that he'd "Cave in the face" of his driver a couple times per year. So, he was always getting a new driver.
Sure enough, one time I was playing with him and it did seem as though he "caved in the face" of his driver.
Come to find out. Somebody supposedly caught him on the course after he'd raced ahead of everyone. He was thinking he was alone, midway through and was using a big rock to hammer a ball into the face of his driver so that it would be "caved in" before he'd tee off. So, he was destroying the driver face, just to give the appearance that he "caved it in" on his next swing. I guess when he was caught he tried to play it off as he had "caved in" the face of his driver on the previous hole, and was using the rock and the ball "trying to fix it" so that he could use it the rest of the round. 🤣
Here's the kicker. He actually would take his driver back to the shop where he bought it and they would replace it for him. Now that takes some balls. And I don't mean Titleist's.
I have been asked by the Committee of a local club and the underlying question is as you suggest. Are the scores to be returned as Competition (in WHS terminology) scores or General Play?
If the former, should each round be set up as one competition for all players (preferred I think) or a series of two man field competitions?
Each game will be strokeplay and the lower scorer of the two players in that game goes into the next round
