No - not on the short par 4 - but most times as we were playing right off the back plates

Tee shots were
10 Driver huge push into trees 220m
12 Driver huge push into trees 198m
13 Driver fade rolled off into right rough behind trees 234m
15 5i on fairway
16 Driver low fade on fairway 202m
17 Driver gentle fade for the dogleg right on fairway 243m
18 Driver push just off right 226m
1 Driver thin push just off right 197m
2 Driver hook under tree 236m
4 Driver pull just off left 228m
5 Driver on 230m
6 Driver push just off right 234m
7 Driver just off left 244m
8 Driver thin draw just off left 190m

So 9/13 drives left me in decent position without having to navigate obstacles

The first 3 all left me in tree trouble, and on 2 as well had to swing low around me to avoid the tree limbs above me

So of the 4 fairways that you found, 25% of that stat was with a 5 iron.

I'd expect that it's actually hard to miss the majority of fairways with a 5 iron !

So to confirm your stats, 6 x missed right, 4 x missed left ( 1 x hook, 1 x draw and 2 x pulled ) 2 x fir rhs, 2 x fir central ? ( 1 x 5 iron ) and what happened on the par 3's ?

Is it just me or do you seem to have a general miss to the right hand side of the course ?

I think a pattern is starting to emerge that can be identified.

 

You mentioned recently that you prefer to draw the ball off the tee, correct ? And yet you miss right more often than not, an interesting overview is starting to develop, can you see it yet :)

The miss right has been by far my most common miss - when the expected push draw is simply a push. Face comes through a bit more open and the ball stays out there right.

On Sunday I was keying in on a higher more upright backswing and more down in transition which was straightening up my path, so it was a different shape. I actually had fades at times.

I wasn't working on the consistent shape you have been talking about on Sunday as I haven't worked with that swing key enough to to know what it will do consistently. But over the next couple of months that will be part of the plan - to choose a shot and play for it. Whether this swing change will continue to favour a draw or will work better with a fade I don't know yet - something I will work out at the range.

I'd like it to be a fade - I don't prefer a hook - but we will have to see. No doubt your course management advice is spot on - I've just made it a bit more difficult for myself right now with a swing change that has made a substantial difference to my path.

The big difference on Sunday was that my misses right were mostly fades. The first shot was basically a dead straight push, and on 18 I used my old swing and it went just off right, but the rest were fades - or slices a couple. But they all spent some time aligned with the fairway before turning right.

In the past my right miss was a dead straight push as my path was strongly in to out.

My goal is to have a path that is just a litttle off square and then set up slightly open for a push fade. That's how I'd like to approach most tee shots. But if my path turns out still slightly in to out I'll play the opposite.

Really good session

High and straight for a lot of it

A solid wip rather than a dodgy one

Felt good and was nice to see so many balls going close to where I was aiming for a change

Stableford at Carbrook with Brisbane Fairways - starting off the back

Back nine was what can only be called consistent - every hole a bogie! Because Carbrook is very unbalanced between the nines that equated to 17 points as I only didn't get a shot on 14

Front nine started terribly with a wipe after a hooked 4h into the hazard and then stufffing up the 9i punch recovery, and the lob wedge, and the 8i chip - had a gap wedge chip for a point but that wasn't close

3 pars 14 bogies 1 wipe

2/14 fairways
5 GIR
Frankly the full swing was way too inconsistent today so I had both push slices and pull hooks. Tried to set up as per golfguy's advice with some success but wasn't controlled; too much fade most times, a few hooks as well.
Dropped 5 shots off the tee and 5 from irons/wedges.

5/10 up and downs - most were from Texas wedges - 1 from 8i chip and 1 was a lucky Texas dropping after a chip that stopped short. Had quite a few of those today - chips that just stopped dead in the grass around the greens. Chipping and running is very hard there.

31 putts - and 6 Texas wedges as well - 2 dropped shots from 3 putts and a few other shorter putts that I missed in the 3-6 ft range through pulling the putt. Also dropped a few in that range too and a bit longer which was good. So mixed bag but the greens were very fast but a bit bumpy and inconsistent so not too bad.

Getting my setup sorted and freeing up my release remains a work in progress. The big wind today makes it hard to be sure exactly how the swing is- many of the bad shots were heavily wind affected. But the swing was definitely off.

32 points isn't appalling but was disappointing.
