On my search to remove the stubborn hook from my driver, I have been hitting the range to the point of almost being fed up. The hook refuses to go away. Whatever fix I employed required timing, so the fix could only be temporary.

I got here as a result of following the pretty pretty swings in golf magazine and golf channel, not to mention Sean Foley, etc. So, the swing looks good, works well for irons, esp the shorter ones, by I can't find the fairway to save my life.

Waydaminute.... Sean Foley, laser irons, can't find fairway with driver... I'M TIGER!



Jez kidding. But seriously, the driver hook is so stubborn, it's not even funny anymore.

Folks, what's wrong with this picture?



That's one possible manifestation of the 'modern' swing philosophy, arms and legs straight in the release, getting stuck, and duck-hooking, or in this case, blocking the shot off the planet.

The modern swing looks good, but overdone and coupled with the search for more distance, it can lead to this.

So, back to the drawing board for me, yay! Evil or Very Mad

Identified the reason I was hooking - it was the entire swing, not any one element. So the whole swing's gotta go. Develop a new one with less timing element in the release (clue right there.)

Practice, practice, practice.

Now, instead of hooking it off the fairway, I am SLICING IT OFF THE PLANET!

From hooking to slicing? Oh, excellent. I must be on the right track then. Perhaps overdoing it a tad, one might say.

Tone it back, merge the new swing with a bit of the old swing....Take out the 8 iron and try...

WHOA!

It was one of those got-to-stop-and-admire-my-creation-I'm-such-a-genius-because-I-just-hit-that type of shots.

I think I PURED (100%) the blade FOR THE FIRST TIME. I thought I was hitting the blades pretty well and pretty pure so far. I WAS WRONG! THIS IS WHAT PURE ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE.

So... what's the word.... English got no words for it.... damn SHIOK man!

I found this little snippet, which sums up how I feel nicely.

===================================================
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. – Theodore Roosevelt

I hate failure.

But I have learned that the faster I fail, the faster I succeed.

I have learned that mistakes are not failure unless you don’t get back up and try again.

I have learned that in order to succeed I have to learn from my mistakes.

And, I have learned that by not trying I am, in fact, failing.

Don’t fail. You are capable of achieving your dreams and your desires. But it takes ACTION.
It takes RIGHT ACTION.

There are too many things that can derail you from your work, your dreams or your desires [or the golf swing you want]. Instead, find ways that keep you on track. Find the accountability partners, support systems and personal development strategies that help you and don’t hinder you.

Learn to talk to yourself and provide yourself with positive reinforcement. Your brain believes what you tell it to. Tell yourself you can succeed.

Believe yourself.

Then go out and take MASSIVE RIGHT ACTION!

Danau UKM has a green speed of 9. Not tour-like 11 like the KLGCC during the Sime Darby LPGA, but plenty testing enough. Especially where their habits of placing the pins on slopes, so if you land on the wrong side, it's more like a 12.

There is a hole, par 3, 178m from the blue tee. Large swath of hazard, followed by a riverlike bunker, running long and across the entire width of the 'fairway', another bunker protecting the entire green, before the green itself. Which is very short but very wide.

Perfect test for the 4-iron or 5 iron. Depending on pin placement, wind, rain, and how well I'm swinging that day.

First 2 times, short, on the fringe. Today, on, but rolled off. Slight hump on the green further protects it.

But so satisfying to put the 4 iron to good use and have it hit the green. I shall mark this par 3 mentally to measure the progress of my long iron swing.
