Practicing golf is really a very good thing for me. It gives me something very challenging to do. Gives me a lot of exercise. And it is sooooo much fun to go out on the golf course twice a week to test myself against my fellow golf buddies!
Just today I was practicing with my 3 wood. This 3 wood club is hard to hit correctly. Most times, golfers at my level of the game top the ball and the ball never gets up into the air. It just goes skittering on the grass!
This morning I read a suggestion on a YouTube video to swing a 3 wood with the same effort as a 9 iron. In fact, this suggestion included alternating the 3 wood with the 9 iron in order to "get the feel" of how the 9 iron swings and take that feel into practicing with the 3 wood. Click [here].
In my apartment, I hang my bed blanket over the refrigerator and hit my soft rubber wiffle balls into that blanket. In this way I am able to see if my practice 3 wood shots are getting up into the air as I want them to do.
