My very first lesson yesterday

1 post in this topic

I have been miserable hitting my irons of late.  I am usually on target as in the right direction, but short.  So I took my first lesson yesterday at Big Oak golf in E Roch NY.  Bottom line is that I use to much of my right hand and not enough of my left.  Worked on a couple of drills to get more of a wrist hinge in my back swing.  Worked on the grip a bit too.  Thumb more along the top of the shaft than off to the side a wee bit.  Seems harder for me to swing that way but when I hit the ball it resounds with a really nice click.  SO there ya go.  thanks

    • Age: 43 Height: 6'-3" Where are you from:  Lake Forest, CA How long have you been playing: 30 or so years, really "serious" about the game for the last 5 years. Best score: 73 on a "real" course.  Have had a 70 and a 71 on short courses with ratings in the high 60's, I don't count those. Favorite club in the bag: Don't really have one, but since it's the only one that will never need replacing, I'll go with my putter. Golf books / DVD's, etc, that helped you so far: Jack Nicklaus' Golf My Way, Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, Lowest Score Wins. Where do you play: Tijeras Creek (home course), Mile Square Park, many other courses in a 30 mile radius, and Belmont Country Club when I visit the family up north. Best courses you've played so far: Torrey Pines (North and South), Pelican Hill (North and South), Kapalua (Bay and Plantation) Things you enjoy most about golf: The outdoors, the challenge, playing with friends.  (copied and pasted the format from @Hatchman, and am leaving this answer verbatim because it's perfect.)

    • Not I, unfortunately. And fortunately, too, because… May sucks mostly for that. I'll be gone the whole middle.
    • Happy birthday Erik I'm enjoying a very good stout in your honor.
