I've had so many ah-ha moments I've lost count.  these moments are leased, never owned...don't forget :D

So have I, but this is the first one that translated to my scoring.  It cant be a coincidence.   3 rounds, 3 different courses, 3 different groups of friends. I am playing again Thursday as usual.  But again..... why has my score dropped.  As I still DONT practice, just went to the range that 1 time to beat balls and get this move locked in.  Have not been back to the range since.  


there has to be a point where things finally clicked....and it seems this one might.....and I say it very lightly might... have actually set in!

I know what you mean I think - I have a fairly fundamentally sound swing that can only have come from ingraining things into my subconscious so that I don't have to worry about them anymore.  I just have those days where things are just like what the a** is going on I'm hitting SO MUCH better than I usually do!  and I figure it out, but the next day I can't replicate.  It's irritating!  But I love the sport.

I have had bad days....and good days.... but consistency escapes me.... this is the first time I can say that I have some consistency.   That being said.... I do understand and accept this game for what it is and that is why I made the point I need to LOCK in this move and its a learning curve, BUT the thing is that because its sticking and not being "Irritating" have I stumbled onto something more?

Exactice,

You said you're 5'8".  Just curious. Do you happen to have long arms for your height?  I'm 5'7"(and 1/2) with long arms (for instance, i used to be able to dunk a baseball on a 10' hoop).  I'm just wondering if our body type tends to have these specific problems.

And my very same A Ha moment still seems to be sticking at the range.  I've all but eliminated my "unplayable" strikes.  The ASI realization has also improved my chipping, pitching and bunker play, which were inconsistent at best and occasionally riddled with shanks.  Now I just need a putting Ah Ha moment...haha.

Im an little asian dude, so I doubt I have longer arms, dunk...and Asian dont normally go together HAHAH,  For me I think about growing up and fundamentals.  I played baseball and soccer well before I played golf....realizing now baseball and golf have levers similar to each other...Yet I was NEVER a strong batter.  Now I realize why.   I was not using mechanics properly.

This again goes to a golf swing. My mechanics was flawed from the get go.

So body type I doubt affects it more than JUST, the basic mechanics that are in play.... Why would a big dude like Craig Stadler, be able to play at the same level as a TW or Rory. with totally different body's because the mechanics are sound and they use the body levers consistently and efficiently.

Roger that! As soon as I get a chance I will as I stated, I have not gone back to the range since my initial post. Its been tough with these 2 kids.... Just getting out to play is tough let alone trying to run to the range without pissing off the wife LOL!


PS I had another round, would the collective want me to continue to share. or am I wasting bandwith?
