Went to the range this morning to see if there was any improvement with the eye sight due to new glasses.

Yes but I’ve had those for a decade -

However my prescription changed significantly. It was terrible last week Friday and also trying to play on Sunday afternoon. Still some issues chipping, pitching but easy to tell that I’m adjusting, nicely. 
 

I love that I can see the ball all the way to it’s finish now - it’s been a while.

I need new ones - I can see the ball launch and occasionally as it hits the ground - but in the air nothing.

Full bucket in 90 degree heat working on things from my lesson yesterday. Biggest change was a stronger right hand grip.

Took almost half the bucket before realizing that when I strengthen my right hand grip I am more likely to roll the clubface open on the back swing.

Felt like I was closing the face on the back swing (feel != real) and had some really great results. Noticed that it's much easier to not spin my shoulders open to start the down swing when the my grip is stronger (and I don't open the face on the back swing).

It had been three years for me. Besides progressives I have transitions. I suspect the film was running too. It was rare that I could see the full flight of anything longer than 150. Like you could see the launch and if I guessed right the landing.

 

Worked on chipping, putting and sand play. Definitely finding the center of the ball more frequently.

After a very frustrating putting weekend, I hit the putting green hard this afternoon. My ball striking and overall full swing has been a lot better, so I’ve been hitting more greens. This has exposed my putting, and been a huge weakness the past few rounds. So, today I set up a 3 foot circle and made 50 from 3 feet. Then I kept the circle and worked my lag putting by trying to keep putts in that circle from 20/30/40 feet, each distance on uphill, downhill and breaking putts. Speed has really been an issue during my rounds, so this was really eye opening for me to see. I also, was working on my pre putt routine of aiming the face, setting up around that, look at my line and then hit the putt. 4ABB0B4A-E480-4355-AEF5-915B55FC975D.jpeg.2a0a4d1edd3fc18cd0dba81b9b53631d.jpeg

Hit a small bucket this morning working on shoulder turn and setup. My miss as this season has progressed has been to the left, hitting draws regularly with irons but landing 10-15 yards left of where I'm aiming. I've been working on just slightly opening the iron clubface at setup then taking my grip, which is resulting in much straighter flight, or a push draw at times. It's very odd to me as someone who missed right for so many years to take this into consideration now. I'm not sure if it's possibly a lie issue or maybe the offset on my irons now that my swing path is reliably in to out, however just slightly opening the face has things going much closer to my target.

It’s possible you are coming to far in to out. Usually the big draw/hook is an indication of this. If face is closed or open combined with this you will see the  pull hook or push draw. 
 

And if just a little late in squaring the face the push/block

Went to the range last night just before they closed the shop so I could take video and send it to my coach. I see why I’m struggling so badly, and it’s the same issue I face every year: getting very steep on the downswing. It’s bad, and it’s a natural tendency I fight every year. The disease in my back that has caused my spine to straighten, along with pretty extensive arthritis in my hips and neck, contribute significantly to the “moves” I make throughout the swing. I’m looking forward to getting some feedback and drills to help get me back on-plane.

Thankfully nothing I've hit on the course so far has been a hook. Ballflight starts straight then draws 10-15 yards. I've been compensating by aiming right of target but I don't want to rely on that full time.

Check your setup and make sure you aren’t too closed or open. If possible film from behind and see where you swing is coming from and where your face is at shaft parallel just before impact

Took a few clubs to the range after work to keep working on the same feels from last week. It was right around 100 degrees outside and I was still in jeans, but overall it was a successful range day. I am basically feeling like I am slowing everything down, but the results are good, so I'm going with it. 

I also got bored over the weekend and did this to my wedges. The paint was looking pretty bad on a few of them so figured I would try my hand at a little project.

Coach replied, and I have a few things to work-on, and then send him back 2 videos. It will be a few days with the rain we have, and taking the son to college tomorrow (😢😢😢), but excited to work out these issues.

So to try something out I hit my son's steel shafted CBX 7i vs my graphite shafted D200. There's a 40 gram difference between shafts, and my 15 yard draw was diminished to about 5 yards with the CBX. Mental placebo or potentially real results with heavier weight impacting my tempo and release?

Here are my thoughts. 
1.   a 10-15 yard draw might be a bit more than desired, but if consistent you aren’t compensating that draw is your stock shot.  Embrace that and aim 10-15 yards right knowing that it should come back. You should also see shots that draw less and draw more as that is your dispersion pattern   

2.  It is probably related to the weighting and balance of the club and how you respond to it during the swing.  I see this fairly regularly when doing most wanted testing. As I rotate through the clubs, ball flights and performance change slightly and there is consistency for each club.   As an example I have been doing wedge testing: I had a club that was long and slightly left, one that was pretty consistent at the target distance and one that was generally a short push.   This pattern was the same as I rotated through the clubs.

Potentially heavier shaft influencing better mechanics. 
 

Hard to say what’s happening without video with each club, but yeah I would suspects better path or better face angle or release.
