Day 111 (7/26/21) - Hit quarter swing wedge shots with my 58* (full swing motion, backswing to A2) in the yard today for about 10 minutes. Focused on turning through the ball, which resulted in a 20-25 yard shot.
Some instructors are posting clips from lessons, before after, the fix, why the fix. Not all include the why part though. They're more on Instagram though and some will only exist for a brief moment in Stories.
I find looking at swings of all different players on Instagram informative.
Rules question, really thinking towards the 2022 challenge, as this won't come up in 2021.
I plan to maintain my membership at the course I've considered to be my home course since 2008. However, I now live nearly an hour drive from there, and will probably also join a club closer to me (TBD, and one of them has two courses). Would it be okay (assuming we continue this in 2022, which I hope we do) if I have two "home courses" (or three, if I join the club with two courses), and use away composite for "not one of those"?
Just played Freshwater Golf Club on the Isle of Wight today whilst on holiday. Never played this course before and also forgot my Garmin watch (grrr). Point is only had 8 clubs and putter, D 3h 4 6 7 8 9 SW P. To be honest it was plenty of equipment 14 is too many. Played to handicap.
Shot 82 yesterday, 14 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, zero penalty strokes.
Ball striking was pretty good. No exceptional shots, but all my misses were manageable, except one approach that I toed so bad I almost missed the ball completely.
Driver contact was higher on the face the usual, which resulted in some higher and shorter drives.
After putting in some practice time on chipping and pitching last week, there was a noticeable improvement in my short game.
I had 5 GIR, and each birdie putt was in a makeable range, but none dropped, but made up for it with some 1-putt pars, including a sand save.
