Fridays round was 99.
On Saturday, I worked on lagging by hands and easing my swing until point of impact. I shot 92.
Played 18 today and continued working on the hand lag etc. Shot 95.
Tomorrow I will be playing 36. I will be attempting to add more shoulder turn so that I am looking down over my left shoulder at the ball on the back swing. This should also help with the inside out approach. I'll let you know the results.
Changes helped a bit but had a wide swing in scoring results. 92 on first round and 101 on second.
Work on your short game
Most strokes are lost from 100 on in.
I know people don't have endless time to spend on the range, but trying to make swing changes and take them on the course can be frustrating and self-defeating unless you really have a handle on your game.
This is conventional wisdom. I think it depends a lot on your level. A guy I know does stat work for Tour pros and he says for them, the most important metric is 200-220 yards, what he calls the danger zone. From 100 in, they are all so good that there is really not that much difference.
We see pros stick their wedges and think that is what you have to do, but the average distance from 100 yards on Tour is something like 25 feet. Many weekend hackers would consider that a not so great shot.
There is one problem with that and it's the fact that the range is level ground and simulates hitting off the fairway. The range is good but courses need to be played to have full effect.
