What/How Did You Practice Today?


Golfspy_Lukes

Recommended Posts

Went to the range to practice on strike quality and keeping the ball flight down. Was hitting into a 15 to 20 mile an hour headwind. Was pretty happy with the results and my consistency with the irons. I’m excited to go back to Bandon. Finished the session with 15 driver swings. Had a few a little low on the face but overall pretty much dead center every time!

Worked on short game with chips using 54 and 9i.

Hit chips using what GG refers to 7:30,8 and 9 o’clock (9=hip high) positions and using 3 speeds for each. Slow, medium and fast (not golf swing fast)

there’s nothing quite like laying your 60* wedge wide open on a mat and swinging as hard as you can and watching the ball pop straight up and travel less than 20 yards down range.
 

Literally my favorite thing in the world to do on the range!

Since my irons are in transit to be re-shafted, I took my driver, new Super Hybrid, X2 Hot Pro hybrid, and two wedges to the range to hit a large bucket. After some range work, I went to the chipping green and practiced the 54* hitting various shots. The green was so full of weeds that it was hard to get any feel for what would work on-course, so I just focused on carrying the ball certain distances, and making solid contact.

My chipping green is toast too. They lost it last summer when the irrigation went out. My coach says it just puts a bigger premium on your accuracy

Did some chipping and putting practice. Brought out my old flat stick and almost every putt from 12-30 ft out rolled nicely to tap in range. this may stay after all. 

Hit the range with the divot board. With a ball i was now hitting fatter than no ball on the board. Contact was still better. Sadly, my divot board is starting to peel at the edge.

Driver was still a mystery although, I am likely moving away from the Tenesi Pro orange shaft as I don't feel stable with it and don't have much control. The heavier Pro 2.0 TS 7X was easier to control, albeit having a distance hit due to the stoutness. Will see how that performs on Sunday.

I am a pga professional I grew up playing jr golf with Billy Andrade use to shag range balls for Sam Snead caddied for Ed furgol jerry barber Carolyn keggi and Marlene Floyd .Worked with Aj Bonar Rick Smith and Jimmy Ballard .None of which helped my game!But I was able to take the knowledge along with the help of Taylor made and many college professors figure out what works ,I then took a guy who shoots 78 at 25 years old got him on the nationwide tour and also played in three majors on the pga tour.To my knowledge nobody has gotten these results.The teachings our all wrong that’s why your pro never really fixes you why hank Haney didn’t fix Barkley I’m not doing this for the money but as and experiment text me at rgg284@aol.com and for the cost of a breakfast sandwich I’ll tell you stuff that will leave you wondering why .Golf digest said we don’t want the answers we sell tips.I offered to go on the golf ch with a physics professor that would prove butch harmons ideas our just that, so shoot me and email if interested.Probably won’t take a lot but what do u have to lose by asking but another summer of trying.

It’s a big change for me, but he’s really good via FaceTime, which shocked me. The change he’s suggested has eliminated my low back pain after rounds, so I know it’s something I need to follow through with.

... Yea I am stuck on this one too Bens. I have a little free cash but a Nigerian Prince is gonna make me a millionaire as soon as I can figure out how to send him my money so he can buy a Money Order. So when my Million Dollars arrive I will jump at the chance to ignore teachings that are "our wrong" and use some of the money to learn "stuff that will leave you wondering why" because it almost sounds too good to be true. 🙄

Took a few days off from hitting to rest body a bit. Sure wish the ranges would open the grass areas..

Practice time since last lesson has been hitting mostly short irons on a couple drills to get the feel for my swing path to change and it seems to be working.  It forces me to the change with repitivness. Work to be done but big change and worth every penny of my lessons cost at this time.

I actually searched his name and email address. Seems like he is actually a teaching pro but has been posting that basic message for about 3 years on various sites including comments on MGS main site articles. Found a couple that were more detailed.

Apparently he is a pga pro in Maine if anyone wants to go get a lesson.

Range session today... long irons, trying to work the 3 iron back in, and get rid of the hybrid. Had a few beautiful shots, traveled about 235 in the air and went halfway to the moon.  Might need to add a 2 iron again, and look at an even lower launching shaft than C-Tapers... does that exist?

 

Had a few really nice drives, and some clean 3 woods off a tee.  I am noticing that if I feel like I take a John Daly swing everything just seems to time out better.  I feel like I’m overswinging, but it works nicely.

Sounds like a PX LS 6.5 in your 2 iron should do the trick...

Which is about the exact opposite of a club that would ever need to be in my bag. #wormburnerz

I just need to go see a professional club fitter. 
 

Went to the course today and asked if I could demo something in the driver that can lofted down to 7°... dude asked me why, I said well because I hit moon balls with my current set up.

Not sure if I have a flip or what, but full out swings with anything south of a 8 iron just take off sky high.  My 58° nearly goes up my nostril, but still goes 100 yards.  Everything else launches too high too.
 

Leasons would probably help a lot too.

I’m having consistent success with the Phantom, it’s still honeymoon but the look, feel and confidence is working for me.  
 

The putt out tool has been helpful for me in that I can hit more putts during a session and really think about my stroke while practicing. 
 

In my head I’m saying “smooth - smooth” from back stroke to impact.
 

Keeping the head low during the stroke and forcing a slow takeaway. What I’ve found is a quicker backstroke leads to an immediate decel.
