weirdly I tend to play better on the back. But the most exaggerated came the day after 7 holes I was 13 or 14 over (inclduing having birdied hole #2) and finished the day...13 or 14 over. One birdie, one bogey over the last 11 holes.
Been plenty of rounds like you described though were the front score was better than expected only to make up all the extra strokes over the rest of the holes...gotta get your moneys worth
Do you ever work on center face contact using a sharpie? I do that when I feel miss hits. I find I’m off center, usually toward the hosel. I make a few adjustments and I get back to center. You may be just 1/2” off center with the MP33 and it feels bad in your hands. I practice with an MP68 6 iron for that reason. I can feel it being off.
Yes, sorry for lack of detail my current set of mp-33 have R300
When I hit the mx23 today, I felt the weight of the head more than my mp33 though, I think I got a higher swing speed and contact was good. But that's just a feeling and a hunch, as I didn't have any 'flightscope' type tech running.
I love the mp-33 when I play well and contact is good, but 15-20% of the time I struggle to make clean contact and consequently lose some confidence and struggle.
That is why I was exploring mx23's. I probably would have stuck with steel , but that ws all they had today. I might just buy them, play them, and keep the mp33 , just in case.
