Most of my sensors seem to have stopped working now. I have done the diagnostic and it recognizes them, but when I hit shots it’s rarely registering. Pretty frustrating. I contacted arccos support and they sent me a link to buy more at a discount, $7.50 per sensor. I love the tracking and post-round analysis, so I’ll probably get the replacements. I have 121 rounds and about 2.5 years in on this set.
4 different courses in 4 days. Three I play regularly, the fourth which was today is one I have wanted to play for the past couple of years. Booked the tee time and was there in plenty of time to get some time on the putting green. That was the best decision ever as these were the best kept, quickest greens I have played all year. They had heavy rains last night and that meant "cart path only" so this meant a lot of thinking through the shots and how to keep from having to walk too much. So how did I do - 44 front, 47 back for a 91 with only 1 triple bogie, 2 double bogies and 3 pars. With the course as wet as it was, I quickly realized it would be a club up kind of day. However once in the red zone (5yds or less from the green edge, you could putt at will). While there were only 2 GIR, I had another 5 nGIR - which made scrambling for par easier. Total of 33 putts, an all time low for 18 holes! Like I said these greens made putting fun. Great round and it has been a fun week of golf.
Still working on getting my hands ahead at impact. Been hitting a lot of short chip shots focusing on getting my hands past the ball before the club head. It works well for short shots and with wedges but having a tough time with full swings. I’m having more luck on trying to keep my right arm bent on the downswing/ through impact with the full swing. I’m going to keep at it because I think my flip/ cast looks less severe so far. Last round I hit irons and chips around the green great but using the same feels with woods was a disaster.
So this is my new “top” of the backswing.
From the hands position and the shaft position I feel like this is somewhere I really like to end up. The shaft is pointing much more towards the target and that’s something that seems to suit my physiology. I still need to get my hips deeper to make sure I can then push back and rotate more through the swing but that’s another element to work on. This position is definitely a position of power for me. The swing caddy might not be the best tool to hone in your carry distances but as I tested it against Trackman the ball speed is almost always very close (+- 1mph) so that’s the data I’m looking at and today I was getting close to 170 mph ball speed with my driver. I will be working on the speed, my general strenght and losing weight over the winter and I also decided that this winter I will hopefully be able to use the trackman enough to really hone in my pitching from the impact/spin control/carry distance. I will be doing this until the end of the season as well but I will dedicate winter for another leap like I did this year and hopefully I’ll be breaking 80 regularly next season (hoping to break it once this season but it might be too optimistic).
