Not nearly enough. When I was practicing every day, I was improving a lot. Then injuries hit, and my practice slipped. Sure I pick up a practice club in the house every day and go through a few swing motions, but that's about it. I hit the range about once a week and the course about once a week. So I will shoot in the upper 90s.
As you can see in these two positions in the downswings, Rory (and almost every other face on video of pga tour pros) has a triangular space between his arms and elbows while Dustin has no space in between them. My position during this swing is similar to Dustin although my swing style is not similar to his (more conventional i would say).
Does anyone know what this means, caused by or can lead to?
IMO, for me... it may be caused by not rotating properly in the downswing (not opening up and being closed with the upper body), casting and/or getting stuck?---I'm sure DJ does none of these so I wonder why he is in this position?
btw i am kinda desperate to fix this (or find out why this is happening) because this is the biggest flaw i see in my swing atm if it indeed is a flaw---other than that my game is on point. lol.
Range 2-3 times per week. 100 practice putts per day on my carpet while I'm watching TV or whatever and 1-2 days in a soccer field near my house to work on short irons. Roughly 10-15 hours/week since the weather broke here in Michigan. So for approximately 3 months now.
Its a shame all the work I've put in practicing hasn't helped aside from my putting. I literally almost drove off the course my last round. I put thenscore card away and just practiced some more that day. But I will say one thing golf has taught me about myself is I may be slightly masochistic.
Golf is a 4 letter word...
