I do not understand it....
A few weeks back I noted that I had a bad case of Sh&%ks on my shots coming into the greens when hitting those half shots. Interestingly enough, I had never suffered with that issue until all of a sudden one day this winter when I was hitting shots on a simulator. It started suddenly. One day I had no issues and the next I was struggling without any warning.
Try as I might, I could not get it out of my system. Believe me - I tried. The harder I tried the worse it got. Yesterday I was out with the guys and hit a perfect drive on a par five. So good that I was hitting a seven iron to the green (down wind) and it hit the hard ground just left of the green and bounced 20 yards past the green. It took three shots to get it onto the green from there. That's how bad it was :(
Today I went to the range to work on it and I hit an entire bucket, and then some, with not a single hosel rocket ! The only thing I can think of is that I was trying too hard. The more you tense up the less you can swing freely. Today I simply told myself I was fine and tried to simply flip the club under the ball. Loose hands, loose swing, and voila !!!!
I truly hope that none of you ever, ever, ever have to go through it. If you do - just remember one important thing... There is hope :)
My SM6's are performing once again !
