Decided to go out yesterday afternoon as a solo walker. I expected to join a group but when I arrived there was no one on the first 3 holes so off I went solo. Eventually caught a guy and his girlfriend (not good and very slow) but they let me through at the turn.
I played brilliantly save for a few shots. The one fairway I missed was a stroke & distance penalty. Missed two birdie putts from inside 6 feet. The 16th & 17th holes have very sloped greens. While I was on both in regulation, 20 feet away, the result was 3-putt bogeys on each. Ultimately, I was very happy with my 78 despite the stumbles. My game has come a long way after being in the dumps for most all of 2021.
Depends on the iron fitting. People raise or lower the hand at impact versus address. So static lie angle at address isn’t a consistent indicator as to how it will be at impact.
Straighter legs, less knee bend. Not bent over as much at waist. Those two joints and some back rounding in the upper back all add to how much your chest is facing the ground more or not.
