Re: Thanks for the lesson

Darin, that is awesome. You were an excellent student! I could tell you were soaking in comments and trying to get it into your personal language. Keep working on "educating" those hands on the short shots and the long shots will take care of themselves.

Here's the link to you lesson wrap up:

Looking forward to seeing you in a month or so.

> Martin,
> I wanted to send you a quick note regarding the yesterday's lesson. I really found every item you wanted me to work towards to really ring true. I don't think change is supposed to happen so quickly, but yesterday was interesting. After the lesson, hit one bag of chips/pitches on the practice green. Then another bag hitting 1/2, 3/4 and some full shots. I decided to do the things I could implement now..
> Grip-right thumb loose on left side of shaft and right index finger in a trigger position
> Ball position. Moved it about 3-4 inches away from me and had to have a bit more knee flex and waist bend to reach it.

> Hit good shot after good shot. 7 iron went from 150 to 165. Went out and played Woodlands from the Blue tees which usually give me a great deal of problem. This year I have been shooting mid to upper 80's there...and today shot 81 with 1 ball OB and 3 putting the first 2 holes. Like we talked about, I tend to be streaky and when on, I play pretty well. I hit it all clubs better yesterday than I can remember. And you were right about the spin into greens. Spun 3 balls back yesterday with my gap wedge about 3 feet.
