    The THP Range/Practice Thread

    I know there are a handful of threads devoted to range time, drills, practice, etc, but I wanted to start a new thread to encompass them all. Hopefully this thread can serve for all of those in one; Drills you are working on, how you are doing with range sessions, areas of your game you are focusing on and what not.

    A lot of THPers are in the middle of Winter, and a lot are working on different drills indoors to get their game to where they want it to be for the upcoming Golf season. Others are still playing golf and fine tuning their game to keep on their path of improvement.

    So, with that, I figure we can have a place to talk about practice time, short game sessions, putting work, and everything else we do to improve our game on the course.

    Great thread War, as one of those guys stuck inside for the most part, I welcome any easy to do drills you guys are doing to keep the game dialed in. I also plan on taking some golftec lessons and will be sure to pass on any that they share as well

    There are threads for drills/tips, range session, and what are you working on. Figured one spot to hold them all...perhaps?

    I talk a lot, so be ready for some long and boring posts. It helps me rehash and get things sorted out in my head though.

    Currently working on dialing in distances/lofts on the new irons I am testing for THP. I will be heading back out today or tomorrow and will focus on 5 different "green" targets in distances of 50, 75, 100, 125, 150yds and figure out the ball flight and swing needed to hit each one with my 7i-AW. I know that my AW is not going 150yds, but I need to dial in the scoring clubs before I head back out to the course on Sat AM.

    I stumbled upon a discussion of the 9 to 3 drill in the SliceFixer thread. I realized I basically used to do that drill as my pre-shot routine before hitting irons, and that was a time when I hit my irons really well. No idea why I stopped. So I spent a little time doing it in the garage last night. I was pretty surprised to see how quickly it helped. I will keep working that drill and return it to my preshot routine.

    I would say the biggest thing holding me back from getting better is my poor range sessions. I am only good for about 20-30 balls then I lose interest and am not really learning anything, or hitting the ball well. I just get bored. Hopefully I can pick up some things. I'm about to go now and I just dread it.

    Some folks here can attest to the fact that I am terrible on the range. My problem in the range is lack of focus and just hitting ball after ball without intent.
