So I've been working through the assigned drills from days 1-5 and getting some good solid hits. Also, though I might be getting ahead of myself in getting back to a full swing, I wanted to try the whole "sit/squat into the left leg to start the downswing" bit I've seen, and wow...what results. I filmed the chipping exercise and the impact exercise (what I call "punch"), as well as a slow motion of me just trying a sit/squat with no ball, and one with ball. I can't believe how just doing that 1 motion has me in a much more dynamic position coming through and into the ball than I ever have. My impact looks better on the swing without the ball, as I still look like I'm breaking down a bit on the swing where I actually hit the ball. However, my weight is transferring, my hips are getting around, and I'm actually building some lag in the club. Thoughts?
Obviously, the business of taking medical advice online to heart is dumb and I fear a trip to the doctor may well be necessary. But. ...
I woke up Monday with a pain in my right bicep area. Basically it's ok unless I extend my arm laterally (kind of like you'd do in a back swing), then it hurts significantly.
Originally, my assumption was that I slept on it wrongly and it would go away in a day or so. It even seemed slightly better Tuesday morning, but no real progress since then. Can't think of anything specific that might have caused it. but golf is probably out for this weekend.
Anyone have anything like that? Does that sound like some sort of repetitive motion problem?
I wouldn’t say there’s a significant forgiveness factor. The hollow backs apparently help with ball speed thus helping with distance while still allowing the club to perform as expected for its loft.
I can say you’d probably like the Ping i500 irons. I played them for awhile but ultimately preferred the softer feel the i200’s had.
I currently play the Callaway Mavrik Pros which are my favorite of all time.
