haven't updated in a while, but haven't quit. i noticed the same things over and over in the videos i was posting so i just haven't felt the need to update in a while until i started to solve some things.
been trying very hard to eliminate using my hands during the swing. my biggest leak is being too handsy, before if i had a big miss it was always a huge high slice caused by coming over the top when my hands and arms got moving before my lower body.
my miss is still usually a slice, but at least now it's lower and usually stays in play.
i've realized that becoming good at golf will be a very long journey, and a lot of it will have to do with fitness and flexibility. through experimentation and drills i have figured out that i literally can't get into the impact position i want to be in, even doing exactly what i want to do, because my hips and shoulders are simply way too tight. they are opening up little by little but i know flexibility will be an incremental process that i absolutely must work on every day if i want to be serious about this.
i'm playing my first tournament on june 10th. it's at royal links
, a fairly tough course, but i'm looking forward to the competition environment. another big leak is losing focus during a round and then the hands go wild. easy to stay focused on the range when i'm alone.
