Why it's taken me so long to see this trend and do something about it I don't know. I've been tracking my shots more closely this year and clearly see that I come up short way more often than being on yardage or too long. This is simply a function of more off-the-sweet-spot hits. I wouldn't say I'm real erratic on strike zone, but it dosen't seem to take much as I've observed using foot spray. I've been dropping back a club on most shots and finding that flips the odds in my favor. One problem is that, subconsciously, I'm aware of having what I think to be too much club and have to fight the instinct to throttle the swing or not completely commit to the shot. Today I had the course wide open and played a two ball off the tee and two additional balls from each final approach shots. I cleaned my clubface and sprayed often enough to see the contact location and resultant yardage. It was really telling and definitely supports my decision to drop back a club in most cases. I did have a handful of shots fly past the flag, but the majority of the slight off center strikes achieved the target yardage. Anyone else doing this?
