I finally was able to get out this evening and pair the Spornia and the Divot Board in a practice session. Weather has been crazy here the last couple of weeks lots of really windy and rainy days when

Ok everyone, I have a video of the assembly process of the net. I did have issues with the roof, I probably should have assembled it before standing the net up. It's one of those you live, you learn m

Messed around with the flat setting on my G410 plus today: I may have stumbled onto something... Anyway I gave the net the business today: full speed swings at 115+ mph with the Driver. Next session

Anyway I gave the net the business today: full speed swings at 115+ mph with the Driver. Next session will be all wedge work and I’ll give the chipping net a go...

That hitting mat looks so tiny. [emoji23]

I’d be nervous with anything other than a driver on that. Haha

I have one that size and it motivated me to strike my irons better....no, no, that's not it....I chunked it so bad I peeled the grass part away from the rubber bottom. I now have a bigger mat, if I chunk one bad enough to do that on a 5x4 mat I need to give it up.

For irons I sometimes turn it sideways: really makes you focus...

Got back into the school today (it was closed for the break) and hit a few balls between classes. I noticed something that I already knew, but it become very noticeable today. My den caddy is full of completely random balls and I began to notice a massive difference in flight. Currently I only have a 60° and my DST compressor 8 iron at the school (rest of the bag is coming tomorrow) and I was hitting wedges today. The urethane balls (some Kirkland and chromesofts) consistently hit the top of the target or just above. The surlyn balls (Top Flites, old Nikes, etc.) were easily getting into the roof of the net. It was crazy to see in just a few feet the difference in launch angle off the face. I’ll see if I can do a video with two different types soon.

I like the fact that you get a chipping net with it. The way it attaches seems pretty easy. I have an older Callaway net but it doesn't have anything like that. I just used an old golf umbrella that had the metal tip. Jammed it in the ground, opened the umbrella and used it to chip into.  The only good thing was that you can keep on increasing your distance. But not having to chase the occasional errant shots by chipping into the net has its benefits.

This net continues to impress me on how quick and easy it is to set up and take down. I timed myself taking it down again today and came out with this time.Screenshot_20210104-160648_Clock-01.jpeg.1172f9e259c5255bfeb2cb2504d0825f.jpeg

Down and packed up in under four minutes, not too shabby and I still think I can shave some time off it. 

Practice today was good, started out with wedge hitting some  quarter and half shots before moving on to full shots where I started seeing a disturbing pattern, I was hitting them high on the face. I'm not talking kind of high, I'm talking high high. 20210104_152921-01.jpeg.5bdf48c11db3e763c4a8859c7a08b677.jpeg

I had a square face, what sort of wizardry is this? 😱

Moved on to 7 iron and saw more of the same.20210104_154045-01.jpeg.2bec420f5dd44e5f92dbf9ff5f291371.jpeg

At least one was low...

I remembered right after this that a friend advised me to put a ball in front of my lead foot because I was spinning out due to keeping my weight on my back foot and to try not to move the ball. The results were night and day. 20210104_155903-01.jpeg.711b2fd1b9e0a928bbc940017d7d7f18.jpeg

I still need to center it up better, but the ball was rocketing of the face once I got the weight shifting better. 

@Rtracymog I'm looking forward to your video of the different covers and how they react. It's something I think is fascinating, I knew that water affected launch, but didn't think about urethane vs two piece.

Here’s the video. All with a 60° Wilson PMP raw wedge. I didn’t clean the wedge or wipe it off between shots, but the grooves are pretty clean because it hasn’t seen use in a couple of years. Still pretty surprising to see the difference.

You were hitting your 7 iron with the ball in front of your front foot?

I had the ball closer to the middle of my stance. I'm wondering if it had something to do with the mat, I went to the range today and saw shots high in the face, but not that high. 20210105_152339-01.jpeg.a2a9c5782f17f0a8afa12accbca066dc.jpeg

Didn't practice today, but did make it out to the course and I'm starting to see the payoff to the practice. Driver was exceptional, hitting 5/7 fairways and one of those I missed was actually with my 3 wood. 

My iron play was the best it's been in a long time. The wedges still need some work in the 50-100 yard range, but on short chips and pitches I saw improvement. 

The drills I've been working on with my weight shift and relaxing over the ball have helped tremendously! I still had a few bad shots, but had more that were good. 

In other news, my side nets have arrived after ordering them on December 21, so I'm excited to try them out.

awesome to see the practice paying off!  I bet the wedges will come around in no time.  It takes a lot of time to adjust to the spin and reactions you get on a crisply hit pitch vs one when your contact is off.

I missed you talking about the side nets, are they just for additional protection for stray shots?

The side nets are for helping collect those occasional shanks and keep one from say...hitting a car or their house. Not that I've ever hit my house...Screenshot_20210106-164918_Firefox-01.jpeg.60c885c044fbd50d79b1fdba6bfd9d9c.jpeg

I just started doing some of the @SuperSpeed Golf training this week and I noticed that my clubs were all releasing early. Maybe that was from fatigue from the program because I tried hitting balls right after, but has anyone else experienced this that has gone through that program?

It might be fatigue, it was recommended not to hit balls on the same day as doing SuperSpeed. It's also possible you could be releasing early in order to try to get a little more clubhead speed.

That’s what I was thinking. I’m usually more thin than anything else and it was a ton of fat shots today.
