I had an appointment cancel tonight so i decided to hit the range again and I'm officially worried...I don't know if I'm going to be able to hit this club well again?
Time to get better fitted for a new driver...
Well, got out today at a local, upscale daily fee course, although in late February in NE Ohio the conditions were hardly upscale. But it was snowing here just last Thursday, so the course can't be blamed for that. And I don't know how late they aerated last year, but the greens haven't even begun to heal.
The only accommodations we made were moving up to the Senior tees, even though we ARE Seniors, and allowing lift clean and place in fairway and rough due to the wet, muddy conditions, the fact that we aren't pros, and we weren't playing in a sanctioned event.
I shot an 83 on a Par 71 golf course, which is right in my wheelhouse. Overall I struck the ball solidly and hit quite a few fairways. The more amazing thing was I had only one 3 putt on those rotten greens!
Overall, a very successful day. I was just happy to get out and am as stiff as board right now! It feels good!
Had my best score this year 79 (never broke 80 before that). But that wasn't my best round. A week after the 79 my wife and I closed on our 1st house. Had an outing the following weekend that I didn't really want to play after dealing with the house headaches. We shot -7 as a team. There was a 14 hole strech in there that was by far the best golf of my life. I would have been around even through that strech. It was about 45° and 30 mph winds. I've never had that much control of my swing.
This was me , had about 10 lessons in a couple of months , hit good balls off mats in lessons. Instructor was basically reading a cue card. I was just lost why I seemed to hit good balls in lessons but not on the course. I think alot if it was due to mats and the fact that I was more relaxed. I don't know what my expectations are anymore, I do alot of swing change you tubing myself but i wouldn't say it's from trying to find quick fixes but more so something a lil more repeatable for me and a lil more painless.
I hope you don't mind me asking questions on your swing thread, but how difficult of a transition was it for you? Were you able to achieve the goal fairly quickly while practicing from on the mat but more difficult a change to apply when ball flight became part of the equation?
I ask because I've found the transition extremely difficult.
Nice work on the changes. FWIW, it's impressive that someone with such a low handicap works so hard to get even better.
