Last week I was driving the ball awesomeley. Pinching the ball well with my irons and chipping and putting felt good.

Last night I struggled to hit the ball well at all. And all because of shoulder turn. My bad habits crept in and I was arm swinging.

 

Why cant I just repeat what I did a handful of days earlier. If I pick up a footy today and kick it I can almost guarantee that next week I will be able to kick it just as well.

 

Screw you golf you prick

You’ve got 7 kids.

I don’t think the ability to repeat the shot is the issue.

This is funny! I sympathize with the OP . 

 

When I have trouble with the driver, I just buy another one. It is a bit like getting married multiple times. Initially the new driver seems a vast improvement , but slowly the basic issues raise their ugly head and it is divorce again. At least drivers are easy to move on!

I can spell reasonably well, even if in American at times. I cannot type well , so please look for the key I intended to use within one key of the strange one I used.
