Trying to get the feel for not overturning my hips, and desperately trying to squelch the shoulder lunge that forces a major over-the-top swing. Realized today I need to be spending a short amount of time at the range several times a week instead of a longer time less frequently, but my schedule won't allow it. I'm trying to make do practicing in front of a mirror without a club at home, which has been helpful in the past. Trying to enjoy having found another 10-15 yards on all my irons, although this is tempered by suddenly not being able to hit a full wedge shot cleanly with anything steeper than my PW...

Still can't actually play due to intercostal tear, so just hitting a couple of hundred pitches and chips a day. Making some pretty nice ones!

Trying not to suck so much.

But seriously, there's just no reason to be hitting drives 50 yards off line as much as I do, no reason. Complete lack of focus and concetration while I'm playing. Really need to stay with the task at hand and stay with the shot at hand all the way through to the finish.

A quick comment.....is your ball position different for your irons than Driver? Are you hitting the irons fat?

Not sure who you are talking to, I was the last post so I guess it's me? Yes, my ball position varies depending on the club. No I don't hit my irons fat.

Aim.

I have pretty good ball striking consistancy latley, so aiming my shots has been a priority, and with decent results. I naturally aimed more right than I should. Latley I have been finding a piece of grass, divot, broken tee, or something that stands out a few feet in front of the ball that lines up with my target. I then aim my clubface square with that, and check to see if my shoulders are paralel with the taget down the fairway. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt, but i have seen good benifits from it with way more bird ops and pars. I would suggest this to anyone struggling to get the ball where they want and having trouble lining up with a target 150 yards away.

Working on basically everything. Stance, grip, backswing, swing tempo, shaft plane, left arm and right arm involvement, left wrist involvement, hips, torso, etc. My swing was a hack-job put together over a couple years as I just tweaked things as I saw fit. This week over about 5 range trips, I've only swung three clubs from my bag as I re-evaluate everything I'm doing. It feels better, I guess this coming week I'll see if the results are any good. I'll have to get a video of it at some point.

Getting my play on the range to match up with my scoring on the golf course. I go to practice and wonder why I'm even there when everything comes out pure and consistent, maybe mishitting three of the entire warmup bucket yet when I get out on the course my swing reverts from the cool draw with a nice divot to a hacking fade that comes out with about 0 spin. I go back and forth between the stinging mishit fade and the pure draw/fade it seems on a hole-by-hole basis making my scorecard look like par- par-double bogey- par birdie- triple bogey... not ideal

Trying to get that extra oomph the end with the arm. To me **one of the way** to swing a club is imagine oneself as like a wip. keep arm loose and right before arm complete the backswing snap or bump,as fast as you can with the hip, and than give it another oomph at slot with the right elbow. Exactly like a whipping action except I am adding the elbow hit at the end. you know like adding a bit more at the hinge point of the whip before it snaps through.

Incredible timing involve and I get huge lag and huge distance but again **incredible timing involved**. I could be wrong but I believe it is how Sergio Garcia create his lag and distance, and a swing that could work for the skinny athletic type with fast twiching muscles.

I could do the quick hip bump and get really good distance and be pretty consistent, but that little snap at the end with the elbow is just so hard to time.

Finally learned how to aim the blade. I get a straight penetrating shot dropping like a rock in a slight fade at the end. This is a big improvement, hcp down to 5.5 but I can't see it getting much better without a lot of short game work.

Working on my driver consistency. Not sure if it's tempo related or something else but I'm all over the place (left.. right... down the middle) and it's buggin the heck out of me. Time to spend several hours on the range grinding it out.

I'm working on finding time to actually play. This year is by far the least amount of golf I've played in a long time: 2 18-hole rounds, 6 9-hole rounds (golf league), 4 charity tournaments. It's gotten so bad that I've considered going to the range late in the evening . At least I have another charity tournament on Friday...

    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
