Goal for 2017 is to stop HI from creeping up. The plan is to work on the inside 100 yard game, and the-irons. I'm currently playing during the off-season without driver / fairway metals, ."Longest" club in the bag is a 3 hybrid. Once the longer clubs go back in the bag, I hope to get to under 12index and qualify for events as what my state association calls super seniors.
Also hope to play 90 rounds this year. Hey, it could happen...
Have a lesson tomorrow afternoon. I did my homework and grooved the drill I was given, so we'll see what happens.
I'm also guilty of getting ahead of my lessons, although I don't watch YouTube. My sin is I will marry up things that worked before to what I am currently learning.
Perhaps counter-intuitive, but I think I might just start practicing less in between lessons. Just keep the focus of golf practice very simple.
Fortunately I have many other hobbies to occupy my free time.
I know its not the biggest sample size being only 1 round, but shot an 85 today, had 28% GIR (5/18) and 35 putts. Is that GIR % about normal for mid-handicapper? I did have three 3-putts, greens were very wet at the beginning with water spraying behind the ball as it was putted.
I think long irons 3,4,5,6 need the most work, I wasnt really close to getting on the green on anything 175+ but I did feel confident inside that distance and managed a few more ons from distance than I have gotten in the past. "Flighting" the ball with 8/9 irons helped alot.
