Finally got the skytrak set up in the garage so was just hitting some balls and getting it lined up and practicing what I learned from my lessons… went well most shots I felt like I missed hit showed up as miss hits on it .. now going to get the rest of the garage cleaned up so I can set up a screen and projector

... You have lots of company in this category.  😇  One of my playing pards constantly lines up off the fairway to the right, forcing him to come over the top and hit a pull. I will have him stand still and lay one shaft at his toe line and another parallel with the ball and it is more often than not pointing way right of the fairway. He is still always amazed because from his perspective he is aimed right down the middle of the fairway! When I line him up to the middle he feels like he is aiming to the left of the fairway. I have another pard that consistently aims his putter to the left of his line and thinks he usually pulls his short putts but he is actually hitting his line. Again, I can line him up but as soon as he steps back and tries to line up straight on his own he is aiming left. Such a CRAZY game!

Fiiiiinnnnaalllyyyy got some grass open at one of the ranges in town. Went through the whole bag and very pleased with session. Driver is tightening up. Struggling with my wedges sliding under ball. Not sure why that happens?

I go through times like that too where the ball feels like it slides up the face as the club slides under the ball.  The shot ends up about 10 - 15 yards short and right of target.  For me its because I dont get my weight off my back side and I get no shaft lean at impact.  To get out of it I exaggerate the weight on my front foot in my set up and don't weight shift as much during the backswing.

Oh man... Had a really bad indoor practice 1/2 hour - just felt awkward, unbalanced, whatever .. hitting them all fat, thin, right, left... And that's just 1/2 wedges!

Practice time was followed by another lesson - and a few simple reminders and tips from the coach and bang-zoom I'm hitting them much more flush and straight again!! 

Guess I'll just have to hire him full-time to be my caddie/on course mentor.

Spent some time rolling some putts on my PuttOut mat followed by a few swings with my 7 iron into my net. Easing back into things after a couple of weeks of being sick.  Hoping to get back on course this weekend.

Good practice today.  Went up to GDC in Moorpark. Its a nice facility with a lot of good targets, varying  since they have better targets, varying lies, and lots of different types of mats to practice on.  Today was the last big big practice before a tournament on Friday and I felt very comfortable.  Warmed up through about 30 balls focusing on the bottom of my swing before shifting into some full swing drills.  On a whim I tried a variation of a half swing drill  to stay connected that would let me swing almost full speed.  It's the towel tucked under the arms  but with it only squeezed under my trail arm.  It felt like a very short back swing, but on video it's actually almost as far as I normally go.  It also forced me to drop the club into the slot to keep the towel under my arm and was really good for learning that feel.  It's something that's going to be a regular part of my practice and warmup from here on out.  After those drills I worked on my tee shots and 'played' the course I'm playing Friday. 

Spent some time on the practice green dialing my stroke in before moving to the chipping green to practice some of the shots I think I'm going to be left with on Friday with a variety of clubs.   Feeling comfortable with my swing for the first time in a month, adjustments feel like they're starting to set, tempo feels good, and it feels like I might be peaking at the right time, at least for this tournament.

Went to Edel HQ this morning to say “hey”, get on the monitor with my wedges, and double-check my putter fitting and specs. Those guys are top-notch, and even hooked me up with an Edel polo, 1/4 zip, and a couple branded gloves. Nice way to spend a morning!

So, the struggles continued at the range this evening. I was trying to work on my takeaway, but nothing was working. Just weak slices. I walk into the clubhouse and the pro talks to me, and we shoot the bull for awhile. He asks how I’ve been playing, and laughs when I tell him, and says, “I gotta see this.” Grabs his clubs and off to the range we go. I don’t even hit one ball before he starts laughing. He adjusts my grip, and I start striping it dead straight. I told him he just saved my clubs from going on EBay lol

More putting and wedge practice yesterday morning before the rest of the house got up and moving.  The putting setup work is paying off, my start lines have been right at my aim points with only speed adjustments needing some work to get more consistent.

Putting - Went to the course and spent about 1 1/2 hours working on building some feels with the LAB putter.   I was going through my full routine with all the putts (as I should) and using 1 ball.  Dropped a ball, made a read, and holed out the putt.   By the end of my session I felt pretty good about how I was rolling the ball.  

How long have you had the LAB now? Any thoughts about switching to the Mezz.1?  I love the idea of the forgiveness level of the 2.1, especially as if I'm playing a new course I tend to keep my eye on the target and let the stroke do the work (I find that incredibly helpful for speed control). I've been using that technique a lot, but it's pretty dependent on me hitting middle of the face every time in order to make them drop.  Conversely, if I putt eyes-down, hitting the middle is no problem, but my pace control goes out the window about 40% of the time. 

Love the look (comparatively) of the Mezz compared to the 2.1, but also - the 2.1 is legit growing on me.  

Curious about your take on the matter 🙂 

Thanks!

Nice! I played Rustic Canyon on my birthday (April 18), and LOVED it - had never been before.  Only real "regret" was walking without wearing the proper underwear (lol), so the chaffing was BRUTAL.  TMI, perhaps, but ... kind of my thing.

Where in LA are you?  I have Fridays off, and would love to meet up to play/practice sometime if you're amenable.  Broke 90 for the first time last time out, which was an incredible feeling, so would love to keep up the work and keep getting better. 

I'm in Santa Clarita, and as long as I'm back up this way about 4:30pm, I'm usually free to meet up wherever.  

Let me know!  And good luck in the tourney!

I have had it going on about 2 months now.  No thoughts on switching;  I tried them all at the same time and felt the 2.1 was the best option.   In discussions with other LAB users distance control seems to be a common complaint.

As in they are currently experiencing distance control issues, or they were experiencing and the LAB has helped with that issue?  I know someone on here (shame on me for not remembering right now) uses the point and shoot method and has loved using the 2.1 for that very reason (off toe/heel doesn't seem to affect much (if at all) distance or line - I know that's something Sam Hahn has demo'd on the site, but cool to hear it works in reality, too).  

You have any issues on long putts/lag putting? I remember seeing that being an issue for a few people - wondering if you've run into that at all.

Thanks!

They are experiencing speed control issues with the LAB putter.     My issues on long/lag putts is speed control.    In general the LAB putters seem to be slower off the face.

Got it. My expectation would be a learning curve, but with the pros outweighing the cons. Thanks for the feedback.

Perpetual mid 40s and 50s weather with rain, mist, and 15-20 mph winds is killing me.  I need to dial in my wedge distances; I had decent baseline numbers last year but I'm a bit steeper on the ball now and with my shoulder trouble my swing is becoming more of a cut than draw (harder to release the club when external rotation of the lead shoulder is limited).    I just worked through gap wedge, 54 (bent to 55) and 60 (bent to 59) and while working on strike was beneficial, I don't know how much I can really learn distance-wise hitting range balls in low 50s temps with 15 mph winds when I'll typically be hitting a high compression premium ball in 70-80 degree temps and usually less wind.

Frustrating.

Spent over 2 hours with my coach working on my release with the driver last night. My irons are so on point because I used to flip hard at the ball but have now gotten my body in such a better spot that my compression and face control with the irons is 100x better. Problem is I went from hitting a flippy draw with the driver that I could play to a huge push cut. Had to slow it right down to hitting 150-175 full swing drawing drivers. After a while finally got it back in a good place to where I am delivering a lot squarer face with the driver.

Wanted to go hit a bucket on lunch today but timing didn't work out.  Instead I busted out the Superspeed sticks and got a quick session in to help me loosen up.  I'm always happy to report that by the end I was back to the ballpark of my peaks, even if its not pretty getting there.

Going to try for the range tomorrow and an actual round sooner than later!    

This is my go to if I can't actually hit the range or a short game area... Hoping you can get a round in sooner than later.

Just had an excellent range session.  Only hit wedges again but made great contact through the whole bucket.

Watched a Butch Harmon video last night and decided to put an object (used my deflated SmartBall) next to the ball to encourage a more in to out path, since I noticed I’m getting steeper, and it was a near-instant fix.  Hit some tight groups with all the wedges.

Frustrated yesterday, encouraged today.  Funny game.

Did you have any other swing thoughts other than to not hit the object? Trying so hard to get my path right and body motions but having varying success.

It's raining so no physical practice but I mentally went through my last round and made note of my misses. Shanked some approach shots and I think it's because I was taking the club too inside on the take away. Have the fix in mind but won't be able to test it out until early next week (supposed to rain all weekend).
