So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season. I haven't posted much since October that will be changing. My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time. On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit. Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf. I played in a scramble on 10/23/16. Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing. I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather. It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings. Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year.
We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface.
Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron
Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2
what i'm working on:
1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward
2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight
3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.
any advice appreciated gents!
My local range has pro tracer.
Is nice and seems very accurate. Very handy on days like today when the sky was really grey, I was losing the flight on most my shots so would not have known where they had gone.
