That must be a weird cook book you were using. I's seen reciped calling for sliced carrot or sliced totatoes, but NEVER seen a recipe that called for slice Finger Tips. Must be a southern east coast recipe for sure.
Needless to say. Don't do that anymore, it's not good for your golf game. You know what they say about looking at the water to the left side of the fairway. Your last throuht is do NOT hit it left, and what do you do, you pull it left. Next time you play golf, if you think about your fingers, you are sure to "Slice It" off to the right.
Get well and stay safe in the kitchen my friend. And stay safe out in the world of Covid-19. Does wearing a mask get in the way of making a good golf swing?
Putting is easy if you have the Right Putter.
Took a lunchtime break at the range yesterday with Michael, hit a small bucket. I figured out how to prop up my cell phone on my bag to video my swing while hitting 7i, not perfect but I was able to see some flaws. Left shoulder a little open, and left arm sometimes bends on the backswing instead of staying extended. Shifted off the ball a little on the back swing, have to keep weight on front leg. Back swing not going parallel (ie, looks like not swinging 100%), but not sure how important that really is if my contact isn't solid anyhow.
It's not how...it's how many
I found a nice small tri-pod for a cell phone on E-Bay a few months back. Cost LESS than $8 and it works great for this kind of thing. Small enough when folded up to easily fit in your golf bag. Only an ounce or two so it's light as well. Worth it if you take photos much with your phone. I got it for my wife to make it easier for her to photo her water color paintings so she has a record of her work.
I thought about that afterwards, Don. I don't usually bring my phone to record video. I was thinking they have clamp on types that may be good because I can clip on my bag, or the metal barrier next to the golf stall. When Michael takes his lessons he brings me to be his videographer, I use his cell phone or iPad. He has years of lessons to go back and watch.
I bought one of the knock off Go Pro type cameras to use on road trips... and a flexible clamp to put it on the golf cart. More just for fun of practicing with the camera and such but I suppose I could use that for swing recording. Mainly I use the Ipad .. have a small tripod which travels nicely. Big problem is hot sunny days the devices overheat in the sun.
Aimee, how often does your husband go back and review his old lessons? many times I find my faults are the same ones I had back then!
Golf is a game that can only be played...
Scott, he reviews his lessons more often when he plays poorly (no surprise). A lot of times he'll watch videos early in the morning of the day we are playing-as a "refresher". The cool thing is seeing the progression/improvement of his swing over the years. Not to say he doesn't do some of the same things wrong as a couple of years ago, but it's not as bad.
Snuck out to the range this afternoon, quiet day at work so I put the phone on silent. Talked to my instructor for a few minutes before hitting. My theory was that I was not extending away properly on the takeaway, coming in too much from the inside. Hit the irons really well as soon as I started with that in mind. Also worked on coming in hard into the ball to compress more, can tell when that worked by increased trajectory.
