Prolly not so much up north, but here in the south golf season never really actually ends - played 27 both last Sat. & Sun........Anyways, with the new year underway - anyone going with any new sticks or anything? Besides falcon of course.
I'm rolling with 2 new Adams A12 hybrids - a 4 & 3. Also rolling with new wedges - loving the hell out of my new Cleveland 588 58 degree. Stickig with the same ball - Srixon Z-Star yellow is freaking awesome.
I hadn't played in about 6 weeks. Got the new sticks and went out last week and put up a disaster round. Could barely make contact with the ball.
What did people do before smart phones? I spent the past few days video taping my swing and doing research. My backswing had gotten so flat that I was coming into the ball way too shallow. Often times leading to the extremely rare "shallow fat" shot. And when I did hit the ball clean I was hitting a push.
So now I'm working hard to keep the club out in front of me on the backswing, and I'm trying to feel like I am swinging out to in. Granted, even when exaggerating this, looking at the video I'm still dropping a bit below the line and swinging in to out. But not neary as insanely as I was.
The tips I have found say the problem I am having is more common to better players. So that's an ego kiss. But it's extremely encouraging when you can diagnose a problem with your own eyes, find the exact issue being diagnosed by Hank Haney in a video lesson online, and come up with a fix. It's got me excited to get back out there this weekend, whereas I walked off the course last weekend thinking I sucked, my new clubs were bunk, and that I didn't even really want to play again anytime soon.
