Doing some drill work on...you guest it, getting more open at impact.
Slowed and shortened until I got it to the impact position I was trying to achieve.
Looking forward to the day I can look like this at full swing and full speed. (before I get too old)
My approach to the short game is to know my distance based on how far back I take the club. So I practice this with my 56 degree wedge, pitching wedge and 9 or 8 iron with a 1/4 and 1/2 backswing, sometimes a little more or less, maintaining the club face toward the target after impact. I feel very confident with regards to distance control so my focus is on making good contact with the ball.
Stopped at course after work. Practiced 8i chip shots and up-and-downs (chip and putter) for 15 minutes.
On chip shots, I have bad habit of focusing on cup rather than the desired landing point along way to cup. Still had some mental error chips despite today's focus.
Oh, I see @woodzie264....good idea. I copied it and works great. I simply took two screw eyes, screwed into the end of a real feel mat, and then ran two small, elastic shock cords (1/8 inch with plastic ball ends) through the eyes, tied the other ends together and secured the middle of this "loop" under a rubber wooden tee holder secured by a galvlanized nail. A couple of ball bungies would also do the trick. Took all of 40 seconds to make.
Since mine is on top of artificial turf, I did not want to punch any large holes that a large plastic lawn spike would make. The small nail makes a negligible hole and dissappears once the nail is removed if you need to move the mat.
Thanks for the idea.
