Haha - that's very true! From what I remember, the clubhouse there had a pretty decent beer list, too. I'm definitely going to try to make the schedule work out.
Back on topic, I've really found that I can only do one thing at once. If you do start to struggle with working on the shorter backswing and the pivot drill at the same time (although it looks good so far), try "splitting the work" - only one thought for each swing. Eventually you'll be able to combine them.
Yeah, definitely could be. I'm trying really hard not to worry about any of that yet...going to stick with the "practice template" from a couple weeks ago, and hopefully get out to the range twice this week in advance of my lessons this upcoming weekend.
Funny - I missed @No Mulligans post until just now...so I've been wondering where the heck that photo came from (I hadn't remembered seeing it at all in this thread).
Exactly - it's probably all related, but I don't have the skill to work on more than one backswing and one downswing thought at a time!
I stopped keeping score Saturday. I was so pumped and ready to make a big step towards braking 100 and thought it would be a good day. I posted a 9 on hole 1 at Northdale which is a straight par 5. I posted an 8 on hole 2 (granted it is considered hardest hole-I disagree). It was pretty much that way most of the round. Missed a few par putts for bogeys and just could not understand how I was not striking my irons the way I had been recently (well). Golf is crazy. Back to the drawing board. Need to work more drills from LSW.
