    Default Understanding my 'big miss': flightscope data

    Below is a some FS data.

    In an earlier session I had alot of 'inside-out' club path and 'closed' clubface. I decided to experiment with a weaker right hand and a (slightly) stronger left hand grip. The data you see below is an improvement but you will note that there are two big misses amongst the sample of 10 shots: shot 3 and shot 10. Both misses characterized by a clubface 'closed' relative to clubpath.

    Does it make sense that this grip change lead to the improvement?
    What else besides grip would underpin a miss like this?
    What else should I be working on?

    An increase in angle of attack?

    I'm not sure that you understand the term "big miss", Mr. Hogan.

    Sooo... 80% of your shots are within a couple meters from being a dead straight line... how's your putting and chipping?

    Maybe work on getting those draws to not cross over the target line

    I believe Mr. Dickson is looking for a how given the Flightscope information he's presented.

    Perhaps losing forward bend a little earlier to shallow out AoA/shift HSP left...?

    Applied like Tabasco, not salt.

    Not as straight as I was hitting the 7-iron yesterday. But if you saw today's numbers.....

    Yes that's an option, but I like hitting the straight ball. Nothing wrong with a draw so long as they all end up on the target line.

    Yes I have a problem with early extension. Is that what you mean by losing forward bend?

    This afternoon I had a consistent clubpath of +2* and for the life of me couldn't get it closer to zero. I had a break and went back out with new game plan. I went 'back to basics' which for me means a) taking the club straight back (with the add of a tee lying on the ground directly behind the ball) and b) a conscious effort to lift the club up during the takeaway (i.e. ensure that I have a wrist cock) to ensure that I get 'on plane' or at least don't wrap the club behind me.

    The good news is that for the next 30 balls I had only four that had a clubpath outside the -1* to +1* range. Clubface was all over the place, but tomorrow afternoon is a chance to get that right.

    Maybe you lose forward bend to shallow the club out late, which opens it up. That can make controlling it thru impact dicey.
