    • Okay, so, first off… Too tall, forces your arms too far out. Then, I'll say this: I admire two things about what you're doing here: The exaggeration. How you manage to pull all that backswing stuff together into a fairly decent downswing. 🙂 But, yeah, look at these. This is just for reference, so you know where the lines came from. Okay, here we go… Work on your setup. Then come back and work on doing all this stuff a bit softer. Your arms don't have to go as deep, you don't have to keep the face that shut that long, etc. Just let the club and hands go where they want, but make sure the left shoulder stays down and doesn't lift up toward to end of the backswing.
    • I would lay up given the scenario you laid out. I have the length currently to reach with no head wind, but into a severe headwind no chance so might as well take the bunkers out of play. Depending on how severe the headwind is might hit anything from a 3w to 5i to accomplish that. 
    • I've played Firestone Farms many times. Played it just last week, in fact. I always play to the elbow of the dogleg, which leaves you a short wedge to the green. Even if you can reach from the tee, that green runs away from you a bit. If you wind up in the swamp behind the green, you're done for.  Here's my capsule description of Firestone Farms.The front nine is pretty much played through a housing development, with breaks here and there. The back nine is like playing through a nature preserve. 
    • Day 155 - June 1, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. Hit balls for a few minutes between lessons today while @billchao was working, too.
    • I'm happy with my decision. The thing about a good headwind is that any curve on a driver will be doubled or tripled, effectively making a Shot Zone increase in width quite a bit. I'd love to see @billchao draw the shades of grey on this hole, even adding in a distance gradient out to 80 yards or so for the approach shot if you lay up.
