The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now.
What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.
So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder.
I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate?
How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary"
How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up?
Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before.
Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment?
Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.
Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up.
Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart. I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
A few weeks ago I stumbled across something that seems to have helped me a great deal. Towards the end of a round I was fatigued and playing kinda sloppy and when addressing a ball my left leg popped into a locked straight position and I said screw it and swung away. I ended up smoking the ball crisp and straight. I tried it off and on several times during my next round and had similar great results. Now I've been doing it all the time and it seems to be a genuinely good thing.
I did a internet search of locked legs when I got home from playing today and all the links seemed to refer to locking the back leg and implied it was generally a bad thing. There didn't seem to be any mention of locking the front leg. This makes me think I might be teaching myself something unnatural and bad. I pretty sure I'm maintaining the locked leg (back leg stays loose) all the way through the swing but I'd need to make a video to know for sure. Anyway, my question is... does anyone else do this? If not then does it sound like something that would be considered bad golf posture?
