On the range, feels like it's the right length, try and make a little longer BS w/the driver. But playing on course, gets long, know this from video. And more across the line. Also noticed the longer the backswing, the more the tendency to tip out, not lay down the shaft, at least for me.
For short game shots, I think the BS is too long. Tend to hinge it a lot, if that counts as a backswing.
I am playing in an inter-club match today. I know I won’t get any sympathy from the Northerners, but it’s 55° with nearly 20 mile an hour winds. That’s freaking cold for us!
Hoping that the relatively tough conditions and our home course advantage today will work in my favor…
When I lived in PA, I use to golf all winter as long as there were no snow covering the grass. Ground was frozen solid like a concrete.
One of the grounds keepers said once the ground is frozen solid, and the grass is dormant, it was okay to play. It is when there is a frost on the grass and the grass has not entered dormant stage that you will damage the green.
I am no expert, but that is what I was told by a grounds keeper.
When I watch a Pro and slow mo their swing I keep reminding myself they are Professional Athletes I am not. They can do more with a swing then I can. So I do worry about what you said, am I getting to long because of watching them
Crazy how the ball goes just as far with what one thinks is a 1/2 or 3/4 type swing compared to a full swing. I just need to trust it more.
