  1. That’s kind of what they told me too, once a week is better than nothing but not ideal.
  2. Some days. But come January when we have 3 feet of snow it’s kind of tough
  3. I’ve never really considered a putting mat because I’ve always thought they were more of a gimmick till I started looking into them today. I was wrong. On my kitchen floor a mat would be perfect. Thanks!
  4. This winter I really want to put sometime and focus on my putting but I’m not sure how to go about it. what are some drills to do in a small apartment that will be the most beneficial come spring when I can get back outside? I’ve seen a few things about working on hitting spots (coins on the floor or other balls etc.), but my kitchen and bathroom are tile and my living room and bedroom are shaggy carpet, neither surface allow for the ball to stay on the intended path for more than a few inches at a time. Does it matter? Any other drills?
  5. I have been seriously considering this for winter training. I did have a question regarding g it that maybe you guys can help me with. I live in a small apartment and do not have the room to swing a club even waist high to waist high, I get to out local indoor simulator twice a week, once for league and once for practice. is it even worth spending the money?
  6. I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
  7. I know the feeling man. I went in on a streak this year that was absolutely atrocious, of course it was right before one of my biggest tournaments of the year. Two weeks before the tournament I had rounds of 69 70 68 68. The week before the tournament I shot 87 92 96. First day of the tournament I shot 68 second day 98. High and and lows are going to happen. Just got to believe in the process and that it’s going to get better. Don’t try to press it will make things worse. If anything simplify simplify simplify
  8. Worked on this this morning during my warm up and loved the feel and ball contact. Took it to the course and on the front nine my distance control had never been better. Let things slip mentally on the back nine but man I don’t know if I will hit a full short iron ever again, things were so much more in control today than ever before
  9. Started off my round really good, went out in 34, distance control was great played out of most every fairway. Back nine was rough, my distance control went to hell and I started missing fairways and dear god the penalty strokes. 4 penalty strokes on the back. Ended up shooting 78
  10. Ive always been one that wore my emotions on my sleeve and get pretty frustrated on days when I just don't have it. Well I was in my qualifying round for a match play tournament and I had been striking the ball terribly for the past week and was just not able to figure out what was going on. On 12 I had to layup off the tee wit ha 3 iron (which I usually hit really well), and hit yet another hozzle rocket into the hazard and go so mad I reared back and chucked my 3 iron as far as I could. The second it left my hand I felt like a total idiot and thankfully my dad who was caddying for me was able to snap me back to reality in only the way dads can (meaning he chewed my a$$ and told me he'd quit if I didn't pull my head out of my butt. Went on to shoot -4 the rest of the way in).
  11. I have absolutely no doubt that its smarter than me. it doesn't take much though
  12. This is exactly what I fight all the time. I think back to what I have done and can do on the range and let my ego take over, when the smart play is to play smart and go for the center of the green. I bet it cost me at minimum of 2-4 strokes aside. That takes me from 4-5 over to even most days. That’s a lot of saved strokes just by giving up the ego
  13. I am definitely worse by about 5-) strokes this year but I am in the middle of a major swing change that in time will make me a much much better golfer.
  14. That’s a good way to look at it, that I never really thought of. I’ve been working a high, mid, low fade and draw, and I wonder if by doing that I’ve hurt myself on the course even when I’m wanting to or trying to hit it straight. Of course this is with my irons. We won’t even talk about my incredibly lazy hands with my drive haha
  15. I don’t always try to shape my shots. There are times I do but I have gotten away from it a bit till I can get a little more control of it. I can move the ball each way when I want too but controlling how much it moves is a work in progress.
