For me, it is the chipping / pitching....totally lost the feel...most times I over-hit/swing...or some folks call me 'changkul-ing'...
Last game, totally lost feel....ball zoom past the hole (proper t lost gauge feel) chip and at times even end up further than my original position b4 chipping

Same. For me, it's the <100m shots and the 5i/4i shots.

You can practice a flop shot at the range provided that the range mats are in good condition (fluffy). If they are hard, then it's tough to simulate the environment suitable for a flop shot. IMHO.

Haha. I've learned that power-fades are now part of my drives. Rather than getting frustrated, I was advised by my Guru DS to "embrace it" Smile

OK....so what happen after I realized what is not working le?

phase#1: I go into Dreamy-la-la land: Look at my scorecard..and rationalize that if I did not do that, and if I did not did that or if i had done that...or if I just use my cow sense...my score will be....'WAH'....macam pro liao

Phase #2: Sanity sets in....including reality of coz....stand infront of mirror simulating my chip....sometime accidentally kok onto the marble floor...then chiak lak liao....CO scream like siao...but nowadays, practise on carpet

Phase #3: convince myself that I had 'practised' enough...ready for next game....look for kaki....and play next game..

Phase #4: After game.....repeat phase #1 - #3 ......sigh....my golf life.....

My problem if i dun practice - I'll come over the top, inside out swing and all balls will go right... way right.

Those unfortunate ones who will share the same flight as me at the monthly game, you all better watch out because it'll be a whole month where I wouldn't have touched my clubs. You've been forewarned.

How often do you practise at the range, JL? And, how many balls do you whack?

My official training is Tuesday and Thursdays. Monday dont train cos its maintainence day.. WIll hit balls on wednesday Friday
Sunday.. as well.

normally 80 balls take me 1 hour or more.. So... I normally hit 80 balls if i am in a hurry. or if I am striking it well..
If working on drills n stuff I will se about 160 balls. which normally takes me forever to finish

I like your routine. Rather than going for quantity, you focus on improving quality. Thanks, JL! Smile
