  1. My goal this year is to get to a single digit handicap. I currently do not have an index and have never broken 100 (although I've broken 50 many times on the easier 9 of my home course, the par 35 side ... I have never broken 50 on the harder/back 9) ... but things are clicking rapidly every time out ... It sounds outrageous perhaps but I just started to pick the game up from zero background this April and just a couple months ago abandoned the single plane setup for a more traditional approach and ... well. It's just a priority for me. I have joined a club and have ample free time to dedic
  2. Okay ... update time ... been spending a few months converting to a "normal" grip and therefore setup/address position (at least relative to my setup4impact / bryson type attempt at first) ... and mostly following a lot of George Gankas' information that I've parsed from hundreds of videos ... I've always naturally WANTED to be across the line at the top of the backswing ... not too terribly worried about that right now (of course since I follow Gankas ...) ... really happy with how on-plane my takeaway is, and the contact here is phenomenal, for me ... I sh
  3. took care to get the camera angle correct but picked up the club I had laid down before addressing the ball ... this was the best contact of 4 or 5 swings I video'd but perhaps misleading hitting a wiffle ball off of a mat ...

  4. Been hitting balls every day between the range of wiffle balls in the back yard ... have hit hundreds since the last time I actually hit a shot clean ... feel totally lost ... 7-iron carrying 100 yards, everything is fat or thin ... I am a beginner but have had several extended stretches where I was actually contacting the ball well on full shots- 160 yard carry draws with 7 iron, while using the same "Bryson / setup 4 impact" setup ... but cannot for the life of me get back to that ... starting to forget what that feeling of clean contact even is ... been working primarily on swing plane
  5. I've been Playing Golf for: 4 months My current handicap index or average score is: I shoot 100-120 on a difficult course if nothing goes too horribly wrong My typical ball flight is: a manageable fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: (severely) chunked/topped shots, sliced OB drives Videos:
