That's awesome and I would love to!

 

Distance is bar none the biggest issue in my golf game. I'm excited to see how losing this weight and the new set will change that for me next season, but when I am hitting my 7 iron 150 and hoping that it flies the full distance I think we have a problem.

A good amount of my distance gain came from switching to a draw from a fade. What is your shot shape like?

I used to try and force a draw, which caused a major issue for me. I had trouble getting to my left side and would hang back on the ball. Causing my path to go dramatically left.

 

Since I've switched to a fade as the predominant feeling for me I have noticed an uptick in yardage. My fitting added a considerable amount for me as well. The unfortunate part is I haven't gotten to play since I received my set outside of two rounds due to the weather. So it's still. Huge unknown for next season.

I liken it to a job interview. If possible it is nice if they played at a high level as for me it demonstrates their abilities but in saying that, there are many teaching pros that are incredible.

My friend who was one of the partners at Modern Golf (since left and recently opened his own) played competitive golf, worked for TM in their Tour van on the European Tour  and as a bonus he also builds and fits my clubs for me so he would know my tendencies and if need be we can tweak my stuff on the spot. Also, having a Trackman etc is great as there can be things that can be corrected once looking at the data. Besides I think it is fun looking at the numbers. Here is a picture up at MG when I was warming up.

After their credentials, I think it is important if you like each other :)

Theoo we absolutely have to do that! You're not too far from me and I'm happy to drive to get together with some guys! Would be a blast.

 

Maverickpig, you're a lucky man. I wish mightily I was closer to Justin and the guys at Modern. They would be a fantastic place to hang my hat for lessons. Oh well.

 

And djahubes, Theoo seems like your guy!

I was thinking about golftec. Anyone have any feedback? Not looking to change too much.

It's definitely worth taking a swing evaluation, even in that hour you can learn a lot about your game and swing

IMHO, lessons are the best money you can spend on the course.

 

I played for decades without ever having one and now I have them at least once every other month.

 

I'm a big tech geek in all other things, but having a pro on the practice range always is my preference.
