Yeah, my clean strikes are probably 50/50 regular trajectory vs looking like knockdown shots, which is clearly a pain when trying to hit elevated greens or stay below the hole. That all makes sense. Thanks.
Surely a ball off the toe could put the ball in a similar place as the classic shank, but what about the feel?
Not only does the ball go sideways, but on contact with the hosel you instantly feel like the contents of your stomach just went into your undershorts. Your "toe shank" surely doesn't do that.
Forgive me for not experimenting to find out.
I'm starting to develop a lot more confidence in the new motion with my irons, and I'm noticing my mishits are becoming a lot less severe! I'm still doing some leaning back through impact, but I think it looks a bit better than it did two weeks ago.
I quit for 10 years maybe more. I had back surgery in 2005, started a business, so between the two really did not have time to golf. My GF decided back in February she wanted to take up golf so I got back into it. I only hit 60 or 70 balls at practice sessions and I use a Teeter Hangups almost everyday. I have shortened my swing and have less twisting going on. My driver swing speed is the same as 20 years ago but I never could control a fast driver swing I'm still about 95 mph. I hit the range about 3 to 4 times a week and if I get sore I just take a day or two off. We manage to get out twice a week to play. Good luck with your return to golf. I'm 55 next week and heading to the mountains to play for a few days.
