He likes to put his approach shots within 8' of the pin and get up to the green only to find out he was aiming at the wrong green ;-)

Huh, selective memory. I've forgotten about this until you reminded me. :8)

And get a new putter 

Still never put those damn quarters that fell off back on. Gonna get fitted next year.

You hit that approach pure, man. Just gotta work on your aim next time :-P

If it's any consolation, I lost 11 balls that day :whistle:

We'll pick another course next time. Or we can try and exact revenge. :mad: We should go back and try to kick its butt back.

It was a good course, I'd play it again. They'll be done with the reconstruction and everything by then I hope.

I have to admit I have done this! My whole group did. It was a course in Covington, KY. We thought the hole was a par 3! I mean the green was right there in front of us! Alas, it was a dogleg right par 4.

Yea, in @nevets88's defense, it was a blind approach and all he could see was the flags from where he played. I was at my own ball where I could see both greens.

Unfortunately, he picked the wrong one.

In this age, I should have Google Satellite'd it. There was a group teeing off in front of me, so I rushed it could have let them tee off first

Tweaked the back recently, slept wrong or something, only took a week to recover so got lucky.

Think this looks pretty good  (want a bit more hands in clubhead out from 7-8) but swinging easy. It starts to fall apart adding speed and more club, but should improve with reps.

Trying to freewheel it more, swing without thinking. Tendency still is to pull the arms left or let club head go left too quickly post impact but better turning rate post impact should help. Would like to practice more but preferred range is going to be closed for awhile because rain.

Swing looks great. Nice and fluid. If you're freewheeling, that means the work you've been doing is sticking, which is fantastic. Push draws all day long with that swing.

Minor note: you lined up your camera to the stick but it's not on your toe line.

Thanks. Yeah I keep doing that. Moving away from stick. It's not like it'll hit me in the face. Bad habit.

A lot of variance in the transitions, shallow, steep, ok, ok respectively, but rotating better without thinking about it. Shallow, cover, turn, club head out, more belly to sky, lead wrist flexed a little longer post A7.

Driver swing has always felt "different" than iron swing (not the stuff that makes the driver swing different from irons), but feeling more comfortable in it. Need more supination A7 on, a little steep, but like the general structure better.

Finally, warm weather. Swing thoughts are key #1 head still, tend to move off the ball around A2.5, trying to feel more pressure on inner right foot, right scapula to target. Externally rotate shoulder just before A4, flex lead wrist. Hands in, clubhead out post A7, sync arms and body more together. Talk of ggswingtips on the range.

"Soft" driver. You can see the wood tee popping out of the rubber tee.

This is the most right I've ever hit a 5I without shanking it. Clearly one can see it's towards the toe. Just thought this was funny. Ha ha. Definitely a wonky swing, not all of them can be good obviously. But hey, it wasn't a shank, much rather hit this than a shank any day.

If only the weather were like this all year round. Sigh.

Still fiddling with that left hand regrip that tends to regrip strong, trying to calm it down. Weight on inside of trail foot to keep head from translating back, swaying (Key #1), shallow (#4), don't over hinge, turn, get into ground (#2), lead hip left forward and up (#4), arms straight post A7.

Something's not right about the trail knee, it kicks out right, makes lower body lean towards ball side. Trail foot is banking better, maybe more of that for knee.
