So far I'm reading when it's a good swing it is great and when Deege puts a bad swing on it, then she gets a bad result !
No Harry Potter magic in the game of golf
I guess this analysis is true in most areas of the golf game. The 64 million dollar question is how do you increase the frequency of the former and decrease the latter.
My problem with my driver swing has been a recent issue, whereas beforehand I drove the ball (with the same driver) fairly consistently without much thought about it. I specifically never had lessons with the driver cause I didn't want to jinx it.
However I know that over time I have changed and tweaked my swing and my setup and a whole range of things which have seen an improvement in my long game generally. More recently, this has led to less reliable performance with the driver. I don't need to have it perfect, but I had no feel for what was causing the issue on course or how to prevent it, which led to a complete breakdown in confidence with that club - meaning late in the round it would get pretty darn ugly as I consciously was trying to bring the club square.
I don't mind hitting a poor shot, but I was hitting a consistent bad shot and I don't know how to correct mid-round (or at all).
Anyway, I have a back up plan with the 3 wood which I hit as consistently as any other club in the bag, but I would like to persevere to try and get the driver back on track. At the moment, that has meant a lesson on alignment, a lesson regarding a slight adjustment to my grip, an adjustment to the club itself and now another lesson with some more tweaks to my set up.
Still obviously a work in progress, but my standards for what I want to achieve are actually pretty modest. I just want to be able to hit driver off the tee most of the time when it is warranted and have it not be the worst/most destructive part of my game.
When I manage to improve it enough that something else becomes the worst/most destructive part of my game, then I will move on to focus on that.
