Hit for an hour on GCQuad. Working on the swing. Afterwards I asked a bunch of questions about putter fitting.

Also grabbed a couple of demo wedges. Hit the T20 again, 54*. Love the feel with the S400 shaft. Also hit a Glide 3 56 eye 2.
No offense meant, chile. But I've heard that sentence before, most of the time from me. :LOL:

Walked 18. Enjoyed the walk but not the terrible playing.

Foresight called me today to talk about their new smart cart push cart. Had asked them some questions about release and price point. Should be out in April and looks like a solid offering!

Walked 18 on my local exec after work. A little rough with the driver off the tee, but I generally hit the ball well today. Missed way too many par putts though.

just got back from my lesson with a new instructor. much better than my first one...granted, I learned a lot during that first lesson but I think that instructor's MO was/is more to get you to see immediate success in your "current construct" with little to no swing modifications...while it did work to get me to getting along better, it didn't really give me a good lesson in fundamentals...which is what I got today. we didn't even touch the woods...matter of fact, I only hit my 7 iron the entire time.

my other instructor didn't talk to me about casting and muscling the club...no real emphasis on weight transfer out of a good, athletic stance...today, I got that lesson and while it was frustrating to not strike the ball very well (he said athleticism and pretty good hand/eye coordination helped to give me some good results doing what I'd been doing, it isn't consistent)

I have a better understanding of how important my backswing is and am learning to slow it down...and the swing feels much smoother and effortless. repeated swings the "right way" felt less stressful on my back...I still need to get the reps in "trust" it but the results already speak for themselves...

after the lesson, I applied that technique to a few driver and cuts and was amazed at how much better I was striking the ball with less effort.

I'll definitely be coming back to this instructor...
Also had my first lesson this week. And same deal, a smooth effortless swing instead of trying to kill the ball swinging as hard and fast as I can produces a more consistent shot with the same if not more distance.

Thursday ran my club tournament, tried to use what I learned at lesson. Hit 11 GIR, unfortunately only one bird and had 2 three putt bogeys from that. Problem was on 4 of the other holes had double or worse. Friday read some more of the book "Every Shot Counts". Did some swings in mirror to ingrain the lesson.

Thinking about upgrading mine. What model did you upgrade to?

Just a GolfWorks premium. I'm not in the group that believes swing weight makes a huge difference, but I've been doing so much club work I wanted something a little more solid and easier to check/change level on than my V-Line. I honestly think I'm going to hate the parts tray (who doesn't have a good $10 digital for that?), but it seemed hard to find a good one without it. :confused2:

Looked at some of my spare clubs today to get ready to see if my wife can play. She wants to get out there with me and slap a ball or two around.
