I remember reading on one of the courses I played that a study done by the PGA found that pitch marks repaired within 5 or 10 minutes (not sure which) would be fully fixed within 24 hours, while taking longer than that meant a week minimum. So guys, please learn the correct pitch repair technique and repair your pitch marks ASAP
I would suggest you take your lessons first and then ask if you are still struggling. The reason I say this is because there are so many moving parts to a swing that any of them can throw it off. Without a video it is nigh on impossible to diagnose unless we know your swing.
Also, as someone mentioned above, lessons are critical to ingraining good rather than bad habits into your swing.
Good luck with lessons and ensure you practice what the pro teaches you. Otherwise those are just theory with no real world application.
Yes, my swing probably is a mess. That's why I'm taking lessons. Have my first one next Monday.
It is just strange, that I hit the longer irons with good direction control. Not far, but I read that distance comes over time. I was at the Driving Range yesterday and tried the short irons and wedges again. I have even trouble making contact with them. 😳
I joined this site, because I think that I can learn something fro m the more experienced guys here. Different than other sites, it is not just bragging over here.
Let's see where the journey will take me. Thanks for your advice!
I think you may have come up with a new challenge there Erik! It would have to be with wheel cover on, battery jammed under something (just to make it a bit harder). Swearing is optional but i find it helps in many situations .
