    Had two very hot rounds this weekend. I am improving, and hitting more greens in regulation. Just big numbers are killing me. My swing is as good as it’s ever been, but the consistency just is not there just yet. I’ve been reflecting as to why my game isn’t where I want it to be, or even where I think it should be in my opinion. I’ve come to the conclusion I don’t have a goal in mind. So my goal to work toward is to break par. Last night I set up a detailed practice schedule, and goals I must complete each week that set me back the previous week rounds. 
     
    saturday round 
    score 80 GIR 9/18 FIR 5/14 Putts 31
    Sunday Round 
    score 81 GIR 8/18 FIR 7/14 PUTTS 32

    It’s getting warm down here, yesterday was upper 100s, but my golf swing needed some work. I played okay this weekend, putting and chipping were clutch, but I struggled with my full swing. So I set up my alignment and ball position rods to warm up. Then I took them away to work on “course mode” where I pick my green, aim, set up check target and hit. My swing felt good, contact was good, but everything was moving too far left. Wind was 10+ off the right but my intention was to start right of target to account for the wind. So naturally I went down rabbit holes. I set up a gate to try to hit a fade, but massive slices and a few hosel rockets started happening so I quickly moved on from the fade feeling. Set up an alignment at an angle that matched my shaft angle dtl to swing over in backswing then under in downswing to help me not take it inside, but still much of the same. Frustration was really setting in, when I remembered a tweet from earlier in the day from Michael S Kim a pga tour pro, he said in a tweet do you know the main technical flaw of what causing you to hit it bad? Is it the root cause or is it a symptom? It really got me, I was searching for a symptom, and I needed to know the root cause. So I got my camera out and took a video dtl and face on. This is where I found my strong right hand on the grip. I really focused on placing my hands on correctly and my high baby draw was back. I saw this weekend the coverage of the BMW they were talking how Scottie grinds over his grip to make sure it’s where he needs it, and now I realize I need to do the same with my grip.

    Went to the other side of the range, so that I could hit directly into the 15-20 mph winds. This was a really good test of my ball striking. I was really hitting some solid iron shots, my misses were more pushes that just wouldn’t turn over. Overall, I am very happy as to how little curve I had into the wind. I feel like my swing is as good as I have ever hit it. I also played with my swing weight on my driver. I ended up adding 8 grams to the head.

    After a weekend of just being slightly off, I went to the range to really focus on the tiny details. I really focused on my setup, specifically my weight in my feet. I tend to get on my toes, so I really focused on getting a more seated feeling and staying grounded. This really translated into my best ball striking day I’ve had in weeks. It instantly cleared up my path, I had been getting too left. It’s funny how something so small can make such a massive impact. 
     
    Also, I think I need to get my loft and lie angles checked. Especially in my short irons, they are starting a little left and going left. As well as I can feel the heel digging in that I haven’t noticed until recently.

    After a rough weekend of 80 and 82, I had to put in the work today at the range. I was working on keeping my right elbow tighter to my body, and posting on my rear leg so I don’t sway. I really need to work on my connection. It worked so well with my irons, but my driver swing is in bad shape. I just can’t get connected. I either take it inside or way outside, neither allow me to square the face and hit good shots. The driver just feels so wrong, but that’s golf. I will get it figured out, just need to get the right feel.

    Adding this shot to the bag has really been a weapon on the course. I carry 3 or 4 wedges depending on how I am feeling. I have several options for yardages inside 100 yards. The biggest difference is how useful this is on back pins, because I can take a pw or gw and hit a low control flight and it just hops and stops. Also, I love my rtx6 wedges, I had to wait awhile for mine too.

    I’ve been doing dead arm wedge shots for a few years and whenever I go to the range gir practice or play, it’s the first set of shots that I hit.  It’s really a simple, almost effortless shot to make and helps me get my swing just right.  Fortunately/unfortunately, I’ve got new clubs with a set GW (48*) which I use the dead arm technique, and 2 RTX6 wedges that are back ordered with estimated arrival in Sept.  I’ve tried carrying my old set UW and SW but the feel is just too different.  It has forced me to learn some 2 and 3 o’clock swings with the GW with some success.  With the 2 new wedges, I’ll have much better gapping and some overlap in distances where I can choose one wedge for full swing (more spin) or a diff wedge for same distance using dead arms (more runout).  For me, this is really the fun part of the game. 
    I should add I think practicing the dead arm technique has has a big impact in my drives as I’m getting better and better at relaxing my arms and use my core to generate rotational speed.   The core doesn’t actuate with the wedges but definitely with the driver.  Still a work in progress with the other clubs but all of these techniques tie together.

    My home course is closed to repair the greens, so all I’ve been able to do is hit the range. I’m still waiting on my driver to come back from warranty. I’ve really been working on half swings a lot, really focusing on using my lower body to start the downswing and get more on my lead side, and really getting my finish position in a good place. Over the last week, I have probably hit about 200+ shots with a short iron like this. It is really paying off, from 6 iron down I am able to hit the different windows and shot shapes. Today, I focused on more wedges and my new 3 wood is built up and worked on my back up off the tee. While I was working on my wedges I found a really good feel when I was hitting some dead arm wedge shots, and wanted to get the same feeling on my full iron shots. It was a phenomenal feeling, my ball would start just right of my line and stay straight or just minimal curve. That feeling of letting my arms fall while my body turned was really good for me swing. It really makes me have to get through the ball. My strike and compression have been night and day better. I’m also, been working on putting with a mirror and through a gate. My goal is 30 minutes a day as often as I can throughout the week. This has really been beneficial to my putting. I’m ready for the course to open.
