    Nice work. Though play time will reduce you will find your practise is more focussed given how valuable your time just got!



    My Skytrak in the garage helps keep my ball striking going, putting mat for the stroke. I just find that when things are off just now my short game isn't sharp enough to maintain - not that it bothers me - accepting of that right now. If I can keep the left/right miss to a minimum on the <140 the score is still there.



    Amazing what a good putting practise routine coupled with being only target focussed on the course can do.

    Yeah I need to get a new net up and sorted to keep the swing going, think the lack of practice has for sure focused my practice better. Also to an extent when I have hit balls I've used it more as a warm up, just focusing on getting a feel for swinging a club and hitting a ball, rather than analysing every shot.

    I'd like to give a big shout out to Monte and his short game video series. Short game has always been hit and miss for me. I downloaded the 2.0 series and it has helped me no end.



    As long as I keep the upper right arm moving I hit lovely crisp shots, and just using a feel of tossing the ball with my right hand has really helped distance control.



    Makes the short game feel very simple and easy to be very confident with it. Would thoroughly recommend anyone to download it and give it a go.

    Iron fitting pt 2, the saga continues....



    Finally managed to match up a time to do another fitting for my irons. Started off by hitting my 6 iron, taking out a couple of mishits average carry was 186, the tour issue x100 amt MP 18 averaged 180 and just feels so heavy. Project x 6.5 1/2" long averaged 184 although that may be a little distorted as there were 3 higher carries which were pretty big lefts, so probably nearer 181 average.



    I certainly enjoy the feel of the PX shaft more than the x100, although I hit the x100 very straight on a range hitting balls it just didn't fit in with my other clubs or on course distance wise.



    So leader is px 6.5 1/2" long however this was still about 5 yards on average shorter than mine. Not exactly sold on the idea as wasn't really that much better dispersion to give up 5 yards.



    I then said out of interest can I try the new callaway x forged, sadly all the demo stuff was 7 irons not 6 irons but the results that proceeded were surprising. The new x forged was PXI 6.0 1/2" long, I hit 3 shots with it and they were the 3 best feeling strikes I'd had all session. The numbers were brilliant and longer than my current gamer by 8 yards. Now I've always thought my gamer 7 was a little short but a 174 average with the new ones would fit right in with an upper 180s 6 iron.



    So it is now down to some on course testing with the new x forged and the mp-18 w/ px 6.5. Hopefully I can get this done soon and get my new clubs asap as club champs is in 1month. Hopefully the shop can return the irons to mizuno as they were supplied wrong so will all work out nicely. I do absolutely love the look of the MP 18s but perhaps the performance of the new Callaway Forged will be too good to say no?

    Hit the UDI for the first time this morning and i absolutely loved it, absolute rockets. Can't wait to get it on the course this afternoon in a match to try it on course but the early signs are very promising. Certainly much better than my old x utility.

    Reading this with pure envy - after watching Monte hit 1 iron rockets and reading about you hitting 2 iron rockets I can only sip my extremely well made coffee (I fan do that, darn it!) this morning and reflect on my complete LOFT, lol.



    Really enjoy reading about your progress, one of the great progress threads on here.



    Heading for the UK next week, hoping just being there will just allow all things golf to be enhanced for me!

    Glad you enjoy the read and there is something lovely about a well struck very low lofted iron!



    Where abouts in the UK are you heading? playing over here?

    Hit it twice on the course in the match and loved it, 1st one was a super tight 360 yard hole tee shot, had 90 yards left. 2nd one again on a tight hole into a slight breeze, I caught slightly toey and still went 240. So far I'm in love.



    May well have to weaken it a degree or so as its such a beast.



    I know a lot in the p790 udi thread have slated the shaft and it being too light, I personally love how it feels, but as a disclaimer I tend to prefer lighter shafts and love the Hzrdus black in my driver. Will report back once I've used it more but its definitely knocked the x utility 18* out the bag.

    The match we won was the 4th round of a national foursomes competition run by the Daily Mail, every UK club is invited to enter a pair (often the winners of the last summers foursomes knockout), so we are into round 5 which means out of 2,048 we are in the final 128. If you get past round 7, into the final 16, the remaining fixtures take place at a Marriott Hotel and course in Wales.



    I didn't drive the ball as well as normal but my irons were like lasers, makes me question whether I new irons will make any difference at all! Especially with club champs in a months time, think I would be best to stick with my current set until after then. would people agree?

    Since the win a couple of weeks ago my swing has felt very funky, felt a bit 'outside' on the backswing then very inside and dumped under coming down. Ball flight had gotten higher, driver hitting a lot of slight push fades, irons struggling with toe and slightly heavy strikes. But generally had managed it and the misses hadn't been too bad.



    Until Saturday.... wow it was bad. all the misses amplified. the only good thing was that my short game was brilliant. I'm glad it happened now because ive got 3 weeks until club championship so gives me a short window to knuckle down and erase some sloppiness that has crept in.



    I took video after the round and was shocked at how vertical the club was in the backswing, how across the line it was and how little depth I had. No wonder I was then having to massively get dumped under in order to try and hit the ball somewhat to target.

    Wow.......funky timing. I hit a couple off the planet right going right drives and this is what I've put it down to, arms moving out in takeaway, lack of depth

    ......though I hadn't worked out the dumped under part - assuming the leads to open face or flips?

    yeah coming too far inside with too much secondary tilt so either face stays open or get flippy

    had the same issue- went to a TPI coach last week, used this (and SAMM putt lab) to find every shot was a pull with open face, no wonder I can miss from 2 feet!! useful tool the visio mat, looks obvious but it works, good luck

    yes doesn't sound like a great combo that. sam is very good.



    it is a very useful tool, think I might fix it to a board so I can use it at home indoors. Would be a lot more beneficial to me as I rarely get to use it on an actual green.

    Won my scratch knockout match last night to get into the quarter finals, hit the ball a little better but still nowhere near good enough. Thankfully my short game was unreal and I got up and down from everywhere, including one of the greatest shots I've ever played.



    Pin was back left on the green but just short of the very small back tier, I missed long and right, sitting down a bit and probably about a 15 yard shot, opened the face up and used the right hand, flopped it perfectly to the top of the slope and it trickled down to 2 inches.



    Using my right hand to feel the speed in the short game has helped no end with speed and distance control, thank you Monte's use the bounce 2.0!



    Got me wondering whether I should start feeling my right hand controlling the speed putting too?



    Have sent a lesson video off to AMG to hear their thoughts on how to get my swing back on track.

    Since the win a couple of weeks ago my swing has felt very funky, felt a bit 'outside' on the backswing then very inside and dumped under coming down. Ball flight had gotten higher, driver hitting a lot of slight push fades, irons struggling with toe and slightly heavy strikes. But generally had managed it and the misses hadn't been too bad.



    Until Saturday.... wow it was bad. all the misses amplified. the only good thing was that my short game was brilliant. I'm glad it happened now because ive got 3 weeks until club championship so gives me a short window to knuckle down and erase some sloppiness that has crept in.



    I took video after the round and was shocked at how vertical the club was in the backswing, how across the line it was and how little depth I had. No wonder I was then having to massively get dumped under in order to try and hit the ball somewhat to target.

    Is your depth really that bad at the top? How much more are you looking for?

    For how much my hands and arms work out in transition I need them more over my right heel at the top than middle of the shoe
