A suggestion but this would require you to have somebody you trust as a caddie. When you ask for a 4 or 6 iron, they would give you a 5 iron and you wouldn't check the number at the bottom of the club. It seems entirely psychological to me and after a few rounds you should be OK.
The other option is to go to a range and just hit a couple of hundred balls with the 5 iron only. Nothing else. Hopefully muscle memory will improve the strike
Mevo arrived today! Last few UPS delivery attempts have been delayed by local demonstrations, so I wasn't sure it was going to come in today or not.
I kind of jumped right into setting it up and swinging. I was hitting with my 7-iron and was getting some really bizarre carry and spin numbers - like 190-200 yards carry and 2300 rpm. Then I realized that the I had driver selected for the club, which must have been influencing the algorithm. Once I switched to 7-iron, the numbers seemed to align pretty well with what I see on the launch monitor in my lessons - 160-165 carry, 6000-7000 rpm.
Now I just need to start figuring out the best way to use the Mevo for practice.
I don't know how to hit my 5-iron. I cannot find the middle of that club to save my life. I gave up on it and either go aggressively after a 6 or lay off a 4. I am baffled why I am so much more comfortable with a 4-iron in my hands.
Me and my 3-wood have a little conversation whenever it first comes out of the bag in a round that goes a little like this. "Ok, I don't like you and you don't like me. But this isn't about us. We both have a job to do here and let's not let it get personal today." The ensuing shot usually tells me whether or not it's worth bringing out again for the day.
Bummer, my post didn’t go through yesterday.
Day 16 - Yesterday was grip work and filming my Evolvr videos. Today I got my feedback, worked on my pivot with a “helicopter drill” I was given. I’ll film it tomorrow.
