Full shoulder turn

getting left arm in line with my shoulder line

I finally realized that the most important thing for me to work on - is hitting the ball from in to out. I believe 99% of guys who can't break 90 on a moderately difficult golf course are those who swing over the top. Let's be honest it is soooo difficult to compensate the out-to-in path!

1) Putting from 10 ft in - listen to the ball hit the cup, don't look
2) Chipping - tempo tempo tempo

On course strategy. Before a round I usually look at the course yardages and note my layup yardages with a GPS. I'll look at hole layouts on the internet, if available, and see how I want to play it. I also tell myself that layups are ok in order to avoid disaster. Then I get to the course...

And I feel like I rush. I forget the strategy that I came up with before. It doesn't matter if my drive goes wayward or I miss-hit a shot, I just seem to lose my thinking on the course. I need to work on that big time. And as usual, putting. Today I left 2 birdie putts 2-3 rolls short and I 3-putt more than I want to because I leave my initial putts well short. Really irritating and easy strokes to pick up.

Getting my back healed so I can work on stuff again...

Everytime it gets close to healing I go to the driving range or do something stupid. I hate backs I wish I could just be legs, arms, and a head.

Establishing a consistent, efficient and quick set-up routine to the ball.

Releasing the club correctly while concentrating on a little supination of the left wrist and having the right wrist bent back a tad (Like the picture of Hogan on his Five Lessons book)

Making golf swings on the golf course instead of hitting at the ball. I'll do my best to follow the principles discussed in "The Natural Golf Swing" by George Knudson and "Extaordinary Golf" by Fred Shoemaker.

I'm working on my driver. Specifically getting the shaft on the right plane on the takeaway and downswing. I have a horrible habit of bringing the club back way too high and bringing it through the zone from the outside and over the top. I've had to literally go quarter speed at my lessons and the range to try and build muscle memory. ;)

I think for a right handed person playing righty (most of us) flexibility in the right hand is an issue. To make that funky clockwise rotation and put the right hand in that "waiter holding a tray" position and not cross the line,,, is not easy and requires not only flexibility but hand strenght. I know when I'm lazy and cross the line and don't put my right hand in the proper position I feel no stess..however when I have the club on plane I feel tension in my left thumb, left and right wrist almost to the point of being uncomfortable.

I'm working on sucking less. I stank today. Really discouraging practice session. Stupid left arm! Stupid wrists! Stupid attachment! Gahhhh!

Going to go work out to alleviate some frustration, then hit the pub for a few rounds of ale therapy.

Apparently I have been leaning forward on my downswing, so I'm focusing on being more upright. I think this may have something to do with not being able to consistently hit my driver off the tee. I usually clip the underside of the ball...

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup. John
    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
