Since nobody seems to be hitting good shots, I'll share again. Wednesday, whilst breaking 90 for the second time this week, I hit my shot of the week. On the par four eleventh at Riverpines, I wound up in the greenside bunker, with a pretty severe downhill lie, and about 20 yards to the pin. I had about fifteen yards of bunker to clear, so I couldn't get cute with the shot. I hooded the blade on my 58° a little bit, and thumped the hell out of the sand. The ball landed about a yard over the bunker in the fringe and the bounded onto the green. It finished about ten feet past the hole, and I burned the edge of the hole with my par putt, but that bunker shot was magnificent.
Ok................ so to hell with all the above. I felt completely lost today. So, I went back to my “roots” of thinking only about the leading edge of club face being parallel with my lead arm at A4 and swinging through with a feeling of throwing everything at my target. Played 9 holes with that and actually felt good again and shot a decent score.
I think I try to play too much into instructor Phil’s game that I forget how to play golfer Phil’s game. In short, I get in my own damn head way too much.
I just sent an email to the fitter, i dont know if he'll look at it or if it even helps at all but we'll see...
Just trying to help the process, but if you rather all the information in person you can just ignore this email.
I was fitted into the TaylorMade Sim driver a couple of weeks ago and after 5 rounds and quite a few range sessions i just cant dial it in and when i do find the sweet spot, it goes the same distance as my old driver. My main hope is focusing on carry distance, i dont care as much about maxing the roll out. So im wondering if maybe i should go back to a higher loft. I was also hitting a fade in the fitting bay but when im out on the course i tend to hit a little draw with both my drivers, that's interesting. Maybe im just having trouble lining up my feet and shoulders in fitting bay, i dont know. See ya soon
