Gentlemen, I need help. I’ve been playing for close to two years now (interrupted by two lockdowns), and somehow I feel like I’m not progressing any further.
I’m out on the range and the course 1-2 times a week if work and family permit, I’ve taken lessons with the local pro, subscribed to some online coaching plans, used a launch monitor at the range, etc. etc and my game is still wildly inconsistent.
Yesterday, I played 12 holes by myself. Fired the 1st drive into a hedge like 5 meters left of me, just to hit the drive on the next hole perfectly straight 200m over water. I knife a 10m chip to 20m behind the green, only to hit an 8 iron right next to the pin from 90m out on the next hole.
It all seems just so randomized still, I just can’t seem to find ample control and length to my shots. I’m comfortable with half shots, but struggle mightily with full backswinged shots. That’s why I’m so short with all of my shots…I just don’t have enough radius to generate speed because if I go full backswing, the result will usually be something dreadful…fat, topped, shank, missed entirely, you name it.
I’m frustrated at myself and just don’t know how I’m taking that “next step”, and getting away from hitting all over the place.
I’ll be thankful for all your input!
