Trying to figure out where my distance with my Irons went? Have no confidence in how far my Irons are going at the moment.

"Sitting" into my address position more and stopping my left knee from breaking in so much on the backswing. Hopefully this will help me get more lateral hip movement in the downswing.

Working on hitting less range balls. Really want to go and practice, but I've given myself tendonitis over the past week. Pisser!

Probably go putt for a bit instead.

Primarily working on my driver with secondary focus on long irons. First goal is to hit the driver straight half the time. Second goal is to break 200 yards of carry half the time. I can get 200 yards with roll right now from a straight hit. But because I'm weak off the tee, I'm also focusing on my longer irons because I find myself needing them often.

Working on my short game, i.e. chips and flop shots. Currently my distance control is not where it needs to be, and I tend to decellerate on the down swing when chipping, resulting in too many missed shots. This is the major obstacle for me getting to a lower HC, so I need to grow my skill and confidence there. Ultimately I want to get to single digits, so practice practice practice...

I'm working on sucking less.

More of this. Bad, bad ball striking today.

Working on my impact position, and a little bit on footwork.

Working on 'tipback'. After the downswing is initiated with the right shoulder the clubhead initially moves in the opposite direction. The idea is to contain its lagging energy as long as possible for a delayed release. When I do this properly the ball is crushed and launched like an Exocet missile.

Hello everyone,

I'm new here. Took three years off.

What am I working on? Long game, mid game. short game and putting. Other than that my golf game is perfect.

Owned a set of Ping BuCu ISI irons with W54 graphite shafts since new (1998)?. But now my swing had slowed, can't hit them like I used to.

Ray of hope; bought a set of ISI-ks on ebay with U44 shafts and can easily even hit the 3 iron. Not very far but I'm going to the range.

Golf is so cool, even when it's not perfect.

Allan

Working on my tee ball setup. I found that I hit the ball better if my feet are aligned a little left of my target, and my shoulders a little right of my feet alignment. Only started working on this, but so far it seems to help...and I need help!

P2.

And then... a little P2.



(First three swings aren't great. Better than it has been, but not great. Last two I nailed.)

I finally got out on a course, damage report here if I phone-captured the link correctly:
#6467 (hmmm, nope, that's the post # in the what did you shoot today thread)

Surprisingly my tee shots weren't the biggest issue even though most tee shots had me off the right side of most fairways in the trees or rough. And even though I had several four-putts, putting wasn't the biggest factor in my final score.

My biggest issue was flubbed and dribbled hits where the ball would barely move down range, almost where it was a coin flip if I bring the push cart to the ball for the next shot or not. I tallied up all the duffs and a couple of bladed shots and figure they cost me over 30 strokes for the round.

So, next time I get to a range I'm going to forget the firing line and will hit the chip and pitch practice area. I really need to get my feel back for getting the ball out of the rough and for gauging my chipping swing. Once I get that back under control I'll have to start working on re-calibrating my club yardages.

All in all I had fun, but man do I need to scrape the rust off of my game.

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
