On the range, feels like it's the right length, try and make a little longer BS on the driver. But on the course, it gets long, know this from video. And more across the line. Also noticed the longer the backswing, the more tendency to tip out, not lay down the shaft, at least for me.
I am playing in an inter-club match today. I know I won’t get any sympathy from the Northerners, but it’s 55° with nearly 20 mile an hour winds. That’s freaking cold for us!
Hoping that the relatively tough conditions and our home course advantage today will work in my favor…
When I lived in PA, I use to golf all winter as long as there were no snow covering the grass. Ground was frozen solid like a concrete.
One of the grounds keepers said once the ground is frozen solid, and the grass is dormant, it was okay to play. It is when there is a frost on the grass and the grass has not entered dormant stage that you will damage the green.
I am no expert, but that is what I was told by a grounds keeper.
When I watch a Pro and slow mo their swing I keep reminding myself they are Professional Athletes I am not. They can do more with a swing then I can. So I do worry about what you said, am I getting to long because of watching them
Crazy how the ball goes just as far with what one thinks is a 1/2 or 3/4 type swing compared to a full swing. I just need to trust it more.
Thank you for your response @Dwall4017
Watching pros is what got me too long I think, I’d watch them then watch where their arms and club stopped in the back swing and tried to feel like I was close to that. when my instructor pointed out my shoulders turned well past theirs, and showed how going that far made it close to impossible to get in sync in my down swing it made slot of sense.....still is hard to feel like I’m hitting a full shot when 50% is a full swing now if that makes sense
