does anybody know anything about true golf fit. the way I understand it is online club fitting. how could this possibly work? maybe I am wrong it has happened maybe twice. anybody with any experience wit this?
Right, but it’s a good way to measure your progress because the sticks don’t have a face that will rotate, giving a false sense of speed. Think of it like tracking your weights/reps in powerlifting and watching the progress over time. I recommend if you don’t have access to a launch monitor to book a session 1x/month to track your driver clubhead speed and ball speed. In between, track your stick speed and see if there is growth over time in both departments.
There is a book I liked that was published years ago. It is called "the Inter Game of Golf" and was written by Tim Gallwey. Probably have trouble finding it. Mr. Gallwey was a teaching Tennis pro and decided to learn to play golf. It is about how he applied his tennis teaching techniques to his own learning to play golf and swinging the club. I found it interesting and some of his techniques helped me. But as @iacas said earlier in the thread, it, like most books on the mental side, tell you how to get out of your own way when playing. But sometime saying the same thing a different way can make more sense of it all.
Just because you think you are swinging fast doesn’t mean you are actually swinging fast or making speed gains for that matter. Some of my fastest swings are my most efficient swings with the sticks and conversely, when I swing my hardest, they can be quite a bit slower. Without the radar you would never know the difference. This is when bad habits creep in. Get a radar.
Played the Mount Whitney course in Lone Pine, Ca today.
Just a little 9 hole affair, with lots of trees, and some what bumpy fairways.
I paid for the "all day" play they offer. Had the place to myself for the most part.
Didn't keep score. Just stroked, and putted the ball as needed. Don't even know how many holes I played. At one point, being the only one on the course, I would just pick a flag I could see, not in rotation, and play to it.
Just a fun day.
