I'm a lefty and I recently started to hook and over draw the ball. I thought my grip was too strong but recently I realised that my hands were turning over. My left hand was the problem. In one of the forums a suggestion was to feel the left hand under at impact. If anyone out there is experiencing similar I strongly advise you do as I do and adhere to the tip, it worked for me. I've worked on this for a week or two and my confidence is back. I play off 4 and last Saturday shot 75 in a club tournament. I'm over 60 and came 2nd against a much younger crowd. Just something simple is usually all it takes....it's just finding it. Best wishes, Lefty

I'm working on keeping my left wrist (I'm right handed) flat throughout the backswing. Seems I have a tendency to cup the wrist which opens the clubface. I get push or push/slice shots that way.

A flat wrist on the other hand combined with a strong grip gives me the desired draw.

Thursday I was working on my three swings with all of my wedges, Friday I worked on pitching, chipping, and putting, and today I'll be working on maintaining the proper swing plane as I want to switch to a one-plane swing. I have a feeling that today's practice will make for a repeat of Thursday's practice.

accuracy within a 100 yards. Been working on better position on the green. Also had worked on putting. Changed putters, went from standard putter to a belly putter. This has really seemed to work for me.

I'm working on fitness and full swing accuracy. I believe these two go hand in hand. My short game and putting are relatively solid and I'm losing all my strokes to penalties and counter-productive long shots. I have a nasty case of the shanks too. The good news is I hosel-rocketed a hole-in one the other day.

Two hours hitting pitches from 20 to 60 yards. Holed out perfectly from 40 yards or so just as it started to rain. Took that as a signal to quit on a high note.

Working on transitioning back to the blades and persimmon for a while. Had the cavity backs and titanium in the bag for "scramble season" and got in a habit of overswinging. Played (or tried to) with the old sticks and couldn't find a rhythm. Short irons were actually pretty good but everything else was UUGGly.

    • I stand corrected. I will however, stand by the fact that he's not nearly as far gone as someone like Fowler. This year was clearly a drop on the stats front, but he still finished respectably on the money list. I'm not ready to assign him to the trash heap yet. Completely OT, but I'm curious how Rory's recent fall in the rankings compares with others who've fallen hard from the top  - not because of physical injury (I'm making an assumption that injury is not Rory's issue). People like Jordan (who's rebounded) and Duval. Do they collapse in one area (e.g. putting) or many areas? Is there any pattern? My guess is that there isn't a pattern, and that it's such a hard game that any golf "skill" that degrades can cause a precipitous drop in results.
    • @kmp which rules would you change, and how?  Though no rules should allow cutting down the lone tree at Chambers Bay...
    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
