Home on the Range

Wow, I'm full of energy today! I think I'm finally past this cold.

I did a lot of spackling in the morning and got bored waiting for it to dry, so I went to the driving range for the first time in many months.

I spent most of my time in the short game area and on the putting green before finishing up with some full swings. I experimented with a grip change on my right hand while doing some lob wedge practice and got some great results. Really consistent contact. This new grip effectively lightens my right hand influence and makes the club release feel much less hindered.

I ended up trying this same change on some full swing mid and short irons and hit some really flush shots. My irons are generally shorter than most people I play with, but this grip tweak has given me some great contact and added distance. I don't want to get prematurely excited about this change, yet, so I'll see if it still produces favorable results next week. I've been fooled by temporary improvements before.

Finished up with the driver and didn't see the same improvements. I brought along my Swing Speed Radar and swing speeds ranged from 98-104 with most around 99-100. I was averaging 103 mpg before my long hiatus, so I've got some work to do to get my speed back.

The Driving Range was empty and quiet, so it was a great time to just think with no one around, especially since my head is feeling much clearer now. I've been neglecting that fishy Event Planner recently because of my cold, but my motivation is back to add some more enhancements as well as work on some mobile projects I've been keeping on the sidelines. Huzzah!
