Live and learn on that one. $20 was snagged for a pedicure and that gave me the hall pass to play though.

 

4 hours later and I am still bitter about the playing pairing

Only way to get rid of that anger is to go out and play again. Spring break, dude!

One range session and I sprayed the ball all over, I think I am back to belonging here!

Mats or grass. I am feeling good on the mats and then a bit lost over the ball again out on the course...

I need the grass ranges to get going here so I can have more "real" practice.

Do you find that there's a big difference when transitioning between mats and grass? I usually hit off mats and I play pretty rarely.

Huge difference for me. I can be king of the mat at one range and then go to the grass one or the course and stink it up. YMMV, but this seems more and more real for me.

Matts, but was just hitting driver, trying to work on not bending my left arm at all, very mixed results.

What is your right elbow doing? Left arm for me seems to behave when I slot that right elbow into the body on the down swing...

Right arm has seemed fine, I just used to always break the left arm on the come back, and I seem more accurate like that, but I watch every pro's swing and they keep that left arm straight, so I have been working on that.

Keeping the left elbow straight on the backswing helps keep it straight on the downswing, which is very important to make solid, repeatable contact.

I didn't really think there was a big difference, but after a winter of hitting off the mats I felt like my iron play was weaker when I moved to grass. I'll be looking for an all grass range once the season starts in earnest.

Went and hit a bucket in the 25 mph winds this afternoon and I found that I suck on mats too. :lol:

Wind is a rough mistress. Demoed wedges and full swings with the 58 into the wind were almost going behind me...

The wife found that stash before too long. Now I store my emergency funds in my golf shoes. The upside is the wife won't touch my golf shoes with a ten foot pole once they've been "worn in". The downside is the cart girls aren't too appreciative when I dole it out.
