Friday, March 8 is bringing a bit of a surprise snow storm to the Philly PA metro area. I had plans for a brief practice session at the Indian Valley CC practice facility, but the weather had different plans. See below!
Today’s post is a shout out to Jim up in Canada who writes a cool golf blog. I know he’s got 3′ of snow he’s dealing with. He says five weeks until outdoor practice! Find the Grateful Golfer here:
Following ball flight in a snow storm has its challenges. PW down to the 7I I could follow the flight. After that, I couldn’t see the ball. So I went with a blue dry erase marker to at least track where on the club face I was making contact and went by “feel”. For example, hitting a few shots with the driver yielded zero visibility tracking it, but I was hitting it n the center, so I had that going for me. Here are two marks from my 8I. Just a hair into the heel, a touch high on the face. Straight shots though with decent trajectory:
When you practice, always look for some sort of feedback, whether its visible ball flight or marks on the club face, learn something. Stay curious, golfers!
