Time wasnt so much a factor for me as it was watching footage of myself and having it critiqued. I really only started focusing on improving this year.. where I was maxing at 300 in march. Now im nearing 500. Field work really helps.. just keep on practicing.

I look at it like this.. if im not worried about reaching the distance for a hole I can focus strictly on accuracy.

All I know that as soon as I joined dgcr my drives suddenly increased by 150ft!

But I hear that's kind of normal around here...

These stories are great folks! I think I do need some more field work to really start getting bigger improvements... I need to get a more consistent Snap. I get great snap off my forehand but that's almost like cheating in my mind. I'd say I feel/ hear a snap on roughly 50% of my BH throws.

I agree that accuracy is probably more important, but if I'm playing a 400' hole I'd like to have a chance to birdie it from something other than a 100' putt


Dandaman, I'm still waiting for that remaining 100' I should be getting from this site..
