Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow.
Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine. We play all 18. Today I lost 8 to 6. However...we also keep a cart score: the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.
Our previous low cart score had been +4. This morning we managed a +3.
I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks!
11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
Got a new birdie on #18 today.
Hit my best drive of the day through the end of the fairway into a swale of rough short of the apron leading to the green. Had about 65 yards to the pin, so too a bit off a 9-3 sand wedge. Hit the approach to about 12 feet, and rolled in a left-to-right putt to end the round with a birdie.
