Biggest problem is controlling my irons.  I can move the ball around but don't always know which direction it's going in.

I tend to leave the club face open to my club path causing a mean fade or over all block.

Can't consistently put my game together. I play a lot and see improvements in whatever area I'm focusing on at the time, but can't piece all aspects together with any consistency.

My biggest mistake is getting out of the car in the parking lot!  Really, its a cupped left wrist and poor weight transfer because of sway.

Thank you for the opportunity to enter and congrats to the winner! Should be a terrific experience for all involved.

  • Bugaboo...​ sorry... it is a bit of a long-story...

Inside me wages a war between a Golfer and a Basket Case. At times the Golfer comes out and the game is easy. At other times the Basket Case shows up to play and has no clue what he is doing. The Golfer/Basket Case scenario has played out many of times. I would prefer the Golfer to partake in the bulk of my rounds and let the Basket Case sit on the sidelines as a curious observer.

 

"My" scoring range for last year is 67 (-5) to 92 (+19). The course where "I" shot a 92 was followed by a 73 the following week. I say "My" and "I" because really I'm not sure if I should be taking full credit for the Golfer and the Basket Case.

 

So my biggest Bugaboo would be that objectively I have seen what the Golfer can do when he comes to play. Without any hint of hubris I have seen the Golfer hit some amazing shots. I have been to PGA Tour events and I have seen the Golfer hit tour level shots. I have seen people ask the Golfer is he a professional. I have seen people gather around to watch the Golfer hit balls.

 

I have also seen the Basket Case completely and utterly lost without so much as a concept of what they are trying to do with a golf club in their hand. I have seen the Basket Case lose all feel and look like a high handicapper. I have yet to witness another golfer with such a massive variance between high and low.

 

I struggle tremendously with self confidence. I do not even practice at the range for fear of the Basket Case showing up looking silly.

 

I suspect that part of my struggles are that I am self taught and that truthfully I don't have a good understanding of what I am doing in my golf swing. When the Golfer comes out it's unconscious competence (see target; hit target). The mind is clear, confidence is high. When the Basket Case comes out it's conscious incompetence. The mind is buzzing and performance goes down the tube.

 

I would love to work with a competent coach to put in place some fundamentals. To gain insight into what I do well and what I do poorly and to put together a plan and guiding principles I can use on the range and on the course instead of just teeing it up on the weekends and discovering which part of me has come to play. Hard work is welcomed. I just need to ensure I am working smarter and engraining the right concepts.

 

Thank you again and sorry for the long-winded reply. It's a big bugaboo.  :D

Righty trying to play with a banged up shoulder the past 6 months. Developed a slightly over the top scoopy pull to compensate for the injury. Steady rehab has finally provided shoulder stability and I would greatly appreciate a sharp eye to guide me through the transition back to an impact position with flexion in my left wrist. Help me make it rain those dollar bill divots again, Martin.

Inside 100yds is where I lose the most strokes. Mainly 40-80 yd range and putter. I Avg 31 putts per round but I'm thinking my putts per GIR is around 1.75.

Bugaboo: approach shots under 40 yards and around the green. I can get near to the green in 2 an use 2 or 3 more shots just to get in green .

Super cool offer.  Hopefully this will turn into a regular thing. Instructors that are willing to put themselves out there can be hard to find.  Kudos to Chuck for being a pioneer in this regard. More of this will end up helping us all as golfers.

Biggest bugaboo is losing strokes off the tee.  Too much OB or putting myself in jail due to lack of consistency. Related to a larger problem of hitting a great shot once but not being able to reproduce in similar situations the next time.  Love golf!
