Went to the range with my new clubs.
Man what a difference. I ended up getting some callaway x-20's from a local store.
I only hit my 9 and 4 iron today. I started off with a consistent swing and then it went to crap. As soon as i can get a consistent swing that i feel i can go back too if i find myself screwing up. Then I'm going to start working on accuracy. I will say that 90% of my shots do go straight or a slight draw left. When it hooks im hitting it on the toe with the club face open. Im not sure if the club is turning or if its my down swing. It feels as if its turning on me.
I wish my range was cheaper. Its 6 bucks for maybe 30 balls. I;ve got a card that enables me to get another small bag for free. So maybe 50 balls for what should be 10 bucks.
I'm want to play a round and see how i can improve. It cost 25 for 9 holes and that is alot of hits on the range for me right now.
I wish i could hit farther, but that will come with time. My limiting factor in my swing is my shoulder. That is one reason i want to play so i can get some range back. I had surgery on it on june 15th.
What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.
