I Can't Take It Anymore!
All winter I have been patiently waiting for the weather to allow me to play a round, or at the very to least hit the driving range. I wandered into the local golf shop a few weeks ago to buy a new bag and to get about 30 minutes in on their SkyTrac, to hopefully find my swing again, since there has been too much time for practicing. After I took a few swings at it and was looking at the monitor to see how bad my slice was, a guy who couldn't have been anymore than early 30s MAYBE. He offered to show me a few things with my swing and of course I was willing take all the help I could get, the goal is to break 90 this year. He adjusted my grip, stance, club head speed. He did all this without me being able to use the launch monitor. After about an hour or so he hooked the SkyTrac back up and told me to hit a few. I have never hit a golf ball straighter. I went from having to a very bad slice to having a slight draw. Luckily over the weekend we had 60 degree weather and I was able to go to the driving at a course just down the road from. I wanted to put this new swing to the test. After I got warmed up and cussed at my clubs for about 10 minutes I started hitting those beautiful shots I was hitting at the shop, with a slight draw. Of course I'm not 100% consistent with it yet, but over the 4 years I have been golfing so far this is probably the biggest breakthrough I've had. Now I'm just losing my mind wanting to get out there on course and put this to the test once and for all. How long was it before you found your swing?
