My Swing (Slice of Life)

Recommended Posts

Man, that's not bad. Must be nice to pick up that easily without any practice.

Don't worry, I'll go out next time and shoot a 100. :-D

The time off probably helped...I didn't think, I just hit the ball...used muscle memory and instincts. Once I start thinking it gets ugly...

That sucks, doesn't it. Why is it the first few times out every year are decent and then the game goes to the crapper for a bit?

You gonna be in this neck of the woods in the near future?

Possibly. I was just there last weekend, but only as a pit stop on the way to the KY Derby.

I'm getting married next month, so free weekends are sparse and precious until probably July.

Back out today...probably my best ball striking day of the year. No warm-up time, and my putter is literally starting to fall apart (face is warping and starting to pop out) so my putting was awful...which killed a potential great round...but meh.

With drives of 303, 285, 285, 279, 285, 269, and 291, it's definitely my best driving day...and then 44% GIR, with an 8 consecutive par streak.

Love it when the ball-striking is hot. Should have been an even better round, but the short game murdered me today :D

No new swing updates other than me taking my time and caring less...which has resulted in better golf.

Haven't had time to practice...haven't hit the range all year, and am playing some of my best golf ever. Went out and shot an easy 84 last night. First full 18 of the year.

Sick of playing shit golf. Time to actually practice again...net's up and I'm gonna see if I can focus on some shizz over the winter. Heated range down the street from work, and a new co-worker into golf. No excuses. The goal is Newport Cup 2019. 

 

Right now I'm just trying to shorten the swing...been waaay overswinging lately. Then I can get back to what I was working on before I became a lazy sack of ass.

It's on. My goal too. See ya there, man. 

Cool, let's hold each other accountable. 

I'm gonna start by actually keeping a handicap...even if it's unofficial at first, I'll log every round and calculate. Starting tomorrow at 9:42 AM!

Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  ;-)

If I actually practice and work at it, I know I can drop to single digits.

Problem is, I haven't really "practiced" anything golf related in over 2 years. And when I did, it was for less than a year...and not consistent. Not gonna cut it lol

Working on a drill @iacas showed me about 3 years ago. 

I still can't stop the wrists from coming through (releasing? I dunno the word) the way he can yet, but I'm gonna keep working at it.

Not bad. Just keep your hips pushing up too, the left knee stayed flexed for a long time there. Finish with your butt cheeks squeezed up underneath you and forward. They'll be pinched together kinda.

Left knee extended, belt forward.

Thanks, I'll give that a whirl over the next few days and see what we come up with.

@iacas are you referring to the downswing/followthrough? I was messing with trying to get that "feel" today but don't want to be drilling something in the wrong way.
