^^ @ 9:35 seconds or so for a face on 5 iron shot that went pretty well
^^ @ 6:42 seconds or so for a down the line drive that was very solid (290 or so, straight)
I've been Playing Golf for: 5 years (played 4 years in high school, took a 7 year break, and am getting back into the game now) My current handicap index or average score is: 18, who the hell really knows My typical ball flight is: too high The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: high blocks to the right.
I'm concerned that I'm not creating enough forward shaft lean, as evidenced by unreasonably high ball flight, and somewhat inconsistent ball striking. I have pretty high clubhead speed, 97 mph with the 6 iron , and up to 117 mph on the driver (when i'm trying to kill it). I just went through a fitting and got set up with Mizuno MP-25s on Project X 6.5s. In no way do I think the irons will help me shoot better scores, but I much prefer they way they look at adress, and I have am just a mizuno fan boy. I was also fitted onto a 7.5* 915d on aldila silver (S) flex, but am playing with a taylormade mated to a XS aldila silver. The XS shaft seems to make me pull & draw the ball more, where I am more likely to miss hit with a high fade/ slice on the 915d.
Looking for brutally honest feedback here, I'm trying to determine if I should begin to 'try to just play with the swing I've got' - or put a lot of work into fixing it and start from scratch.
In high school I was able to shoot in the mid 70's sometimes in tournaments, but now i'm anywhere from low 80's to low 100's. I intend to put in a lot of time, as my goal is to break 79 before fall of this year, which should be doable if I practice my short game and play 3/4 swing shots w/ my irons, and avoid driver. (my home course is short)
