Long time no talk! But I'm always lurking.
Anywho, I'll cut to the chase.
I've been improving a lot faster in the last couple years after learning the ball flight laws and just proper form and grip in general. I really don't have a big miss and should be heading toward a single digit handicap when I start recording my rounds more...
on occasion, maybe twice or three times a year (in MN that's a lot), I'll get the dreaded
I've had them from swinging too much out to in, and from also too much in to out. Unfortunately when I get them it's mostly on the course and not on the range. So what I have to do after the round is head to the driving range and put an object on the other side of my ball and groove that path so I'm hitting the center of the club.
Well, it happened to me again last week, got the shanks on the course and imagining an object on the other side of my ball only helped some of the time. So I went home and researched for, cripes, I probably watched videos for 2 hours and came across this (video below). It basically states, set-up with the heel or hosel aimed at the middle of the ball, rather than the middle of the club face. That may get you to re-route your club and body to swing and find the middle of the club face. Well I tried it, and my goodness it worked. For the last three rounds it's been like Angels in the Outfield, the angels have swooped in and saved my swing on every shot. Three excellent rounds, not sure if I've ever hit the ball better. And there lies the question. This is sort of a set-up band-aid right? At what point would I remove this band-aid, or if it continues to work...do I ever remove!?
