How many hours does it take you to hit 300 balls? What is the process? Just hit, scrape, repeat? Or do you go through your entire pre shot routine before each pill? Interested to find out.
Took about 2 1/2 hours
I don't do my full routine because I don't need to choose my aiming line - it's the same for every shot. But otherwise it's the normal routine.
Basically it was just trying a few things to see how they affected contact and ball flight. I'm focussed on consistency and keeping the flight fairly straight, preferably with a draw bias. I want the draw bias because my punch shots always draw so I'm generally better getting into trouble on the left as it makes recovery shots easier.
So yesterday I started testing a slightly stronger grip as Sunday was a push fest. Was better but still pushy. I could set up with the face looking closed which straightened things up but I struggle to feel good over the ball when I'm set up like that - just looks wrong.
So decided to see how loosening my grip pressure affected it. And it made a huge difference to the ball flight - much straighter. I discovered that late in my first bucket and a half so decided to go another bucket and a half (Tee Time does a free small bucket with every large bucket on weekdays before 6pm).
The second bucket and a half was just working through different clubs to see how they went. I like to test with short iron, hybrid, driver, long iron and wedge. And pitching. They were all pretty decent so happy with that. Don't think I got any huge pushes or hooks.
My approach at the moment is that I want to build a swing that works well for wedges and short irons most importantly. I'm happy to take that and have to adjust my aim for longer club's if needed. So maybe I get a very straight shot up to 9 iron but then it starts to get more and more draw as I move up the bag, then I'll just aim right more and more. The wedges and short to mid irons are where I feel the score is, at least from a full swing perspective. The rest of the bag is about avoiding trouble and giving your shorter clubs and short game a chance.
In the 300 yesterday I probably hit about 40-50 pitches, the rest full swings.
