Golf by Feel - bouncing a ball on a wedge

Being a cynical person that I am, seeing people bounce a ball on a golf club never really impressed me much. I always thought it was a pointless trick. You can see it everywhere, even Tiger Woods did that at his golf clinic. Any video about…

Swing-by-feel diary - my new golf swing - Sydney April, 5th 2018 It's been a few weeks now since my light-bulb moment came and my golf swing is getting better by the day. I am still struggling with focus on the golf course. It turns out that…

Golf swing practice at the nets

There is a point to practicing a golf swing at the nets if I know exactly what I'm practicing and what I'm trying to achieve. There is no point just going there to smack a few dozen balls into the net. It may be good for my cardio, but makes…

6 out of 10 with 52 wedge

I practiced all day today. Well, not all day, but a few hours. Had to do my daily 10,000 steps. Actually did quite a few more than that. Stayed on the first 5 holes mainly and practiced my swing. I'm still struggling with this smooth swing…

I know why I am lifting my head in back swing - the posture

I found another obvious reason why I am lifting my head in back swing. I'ts my posture! Went to a driving range today. I like the nets, and I can judge whether I am hitting the ball well, but I don't get to see the actual flight. And today…

Used a golf pitch fork for the first time - ever

No, I have hit greens before, but I never had to use the pitch fork because my balls never made a pitch mark on the green. The greens at our golf club are really dry. Plus they are in Sydney, so we don't see that much rain here. Today, however…

Great round of golf to welcome new year

The golf course was completely abandoned today. I thought it was closed, but apparently open, just not popular on January 1st. I spent some time at the nets to practice the "lifting of the head" fix. It worked to some degree, but I'm still not…
