The driving range was frustrating today. Looking back at last months video I realized what big gains I’ve made so…
First the positive points. Â I have been working hard on my balance this month and watching the video that seems to have paid off. Â Less rocking from my heels to my ankles. Â Less “standing up” at the top. Less falling over forward into my follow-through.
Things that weren’t so good. Â Still standing up a bit at the top of the backswing and definitely not turning the club around smoothly at the conclusion of my follow through.
This months problem areas:
- Not hitting with the center of the club-face. Slowing down the video I can see that I am making contact all over the place.
- Consistently hitting the ball too high. Â Not only with my driver, but with all of my clubs. Â I would like to be able to adjust my trajectory lower.
- Not lifting my back heel through the shot. This probably is causing me to lift through the ball more than I should, causing the skyed shot. Â I will review the balance videos from last month some more and drill on this.
- Ridding myself of this darned slice. I did hit a few draw shots today but it was super-inconsistent. Hopefully this will dovetail with lowering my trajectory.
Next month I’ll do a front angle shot also because I think that will tell me a lot about why I’m “skying” my shots.
