Years ago, I knew a man who stopped playing. He was a very good golfer and quit because (he said) he couldn't get better.
There is a simple formula: STRESS = DEMANDS (-) ABILITIES.
The demands and the abilities can be real or imagined, as I know all too well. The demands can be from others or from ourselves. -Marv
I've read this entire post and my head hurts. Perhaps it's due to being a lefty and doing the mental conversions has become exasperating...wait, no I'm used to that.....I'm waiting for @Jack Watson to MAKE A POINT. PLEASE!
Again, @Jack Watson, I don't care what people say they did. I care what they actually did. And your response has nothing to do with a "baseball homerun hitter."
Again, her right knee has extended from where it was at setup. The trail knee is not the topic here.
I asked you earlier what the point of this topic was, and as far as I can tell, you don't know. The topic seems to be "let me post pictures and video and just say whatever," so I'll simply leave it to you, @Jack Watson. Enjoy.
If you wanna swing like Mickey Wright, go ahead. There are far worse models you could choose.
I was messing around in the hitting bay today at DSG. I was swinging with about 75% effort. In other words, easier than normal... My clubhead speed did go down a tick (99-104 driver vs my normal 107-110)... And it seemed as if I was getting a the same or higher ball speed with the smoother swing.
So to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I hit some 7-iron shots with the same sort of feeling, 75% effort same sort of thing. So I put some impact tape on both clubs, and realized why... My strikes were much closer to the sweet spot with a smoother swing than they were with my normal we'll say 90% effort. (It's probably more than that, I don't have per se an effort meter on me).
I hit a few 10:30, 9:00, 7:30 swings with the 7-iron, same thing more consistent strikes, better contact, staying on plane.
My question is, why am I hitting it "further" with less effort, than I do with 90-95%? Any information on this would be appreciated, not looking for an easy fix, but it solves some of my issues.
P.S. The 7-iron I hit was the new TM P-770, awesome club for any of you better players out there, and worth every penny. And it worked with every damn club I tried, wedges, irons, hybrids, fairways and drivers.
