Been a while since I last posted an update. Full swing is feeling good. Right now, I am working on keeping my right hand stronger as it tends to get weaker if I stop paying attention. Then two main thoughts are hands low (which also applies to impact) and soft, straight trail arm. For me, that challenge helped quiet my lower body on the back swing, and I feel that I load better. If it gets away from me, I miss right. When I’m feeling good, I hit a very straight ball. One additional thought with long irons is to feel like I’m swinging up, as it helps shallow the club (took really big divots before).
Onto the short game, chipping/pitching, I really need to remember the feeling of extending or pressing with my left hand. It keeps me standing a bit taller which helps control my low point. Putting, not sure I’ve ever posted a video of my putt. So here is one.
The putter is my new Frontline Iso from Cleveland. Wasn’t sure I would like it when I put in the order, but I love it! Ever since my old, old putter was put to rest, I have not found something with a similar feel. I feel more confident in my alignment and set up. The grip has a great feel and weight to it. And from the video, I’m launching the ball really well. The only thing is I need to get the club a bit lower. The low point is a bit high off the ground. I’m definitely going to put some practice in with this and make sure my putting gets better, as it has been the weakest point in my game.
I use "Pismo Beach" often as my curse word. My dad always used that as a swear word in the car when I grew up. It has a nice punch to it. Oddly enough, I said it in a round one time with a family that grew up there. Got awkward for a moment but he liked the idea that his hometown was used as a curse word. 😁
