1000 Balls

I've now hit roughly 1000 golf balls anywhere from 70 to 100 yards with a 7-iron, all in an attempt to groove a better takeaway.

It's incredibly annoying how important the first few inches your hands move can have such disastrous results on the rest of your golf swing. 🙂 But on the bright side, I guess I should be pleased that my setup and other static fundamentals are pretty sound, because heck, those can mess up your golf swing before you even start!

1000 balls, and I'm probably 1/4 of the way to where I need to be. At least I can feel the difference now between a good takeaway and a bad one. Good is more of a left shoulder move with the left hand feeling like it's working a bit under the right hand, with the right hand hinging up a bit to cock the club and to keep it outside of the hands.
