Well, at this point I'm inclined to bow out. I think I've embarrassed myself enough for one day and, worse, this is starting to make me think about what I'm doing to get where I'm getting, which is one thing of which I'm trying hard to rid myself.
Good luck with your goals!
Well, today was interesting. Started on back nine with Par 3 hole. It was a rough start putting 2 consecutive tee shots in the crap. I should have gone to the drop zone after the first mishit but NOOOOO, I wanted to hit a great tee shot but instead I hit the 2nd just as bad as the first. Moved forward to the drop zone and ended with a 7 on a par 3. Then a thunder storm came in and we left the course for shelter after the 2nd hole to wait it out. That gave me a good 30 minutes before they gave the "All Clear" to head back out and started to hit a little better (only a little). On #14 I hit my drive left through some trees and tried a punch shot to get back to the fairway but hit a tree and got 39 yards of NEGATIVE Yardage. Good news is I followed that up with a Par on #15 and a birdie on #18 with a great approach shot and a 9 foot birdie putt. Overall shot 49 which is better then yesterday on came holes at same course.
So now we realize you’re lifting. No big deal. My point is if I do passively what you think you’re doing, my lead arm ends up well below my shoulder line and horribly bent.
In order for me to ‘change the picture’ I have to feel as though I’m lifting my arms straight into the air from the golf ball while I rotate back. I’ve created some nice top positions doing this. But that feeling has me so discombobulated that swinging down is just damn near impossible for me.
