Nowwwww I'm in business.
I just played 9 holes. My drive percentages were: 97, 100, 100, 85, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100. And the 85 was on purpose on a par 3 where I was trying to be around 90-95.
I also hit it straight most times now. What i did differently is when I'm doing my back swing I basically wrap the controller around my neck and then go back forward fluidly and straight. At the end of the swing the wii remote camera is facing directly towards the tv.
When I say I'm wrapping it around my neck I just mean I "start" twisting it in that motion... not wrapping it far around. So bottom line is when someone said **** the wrist I was doing it differently than I apparently should have been.
Not sure if I am doing it the way it would be done in real life, but it "feels" right to me and it hits at 100% and straight. I did one drive of 336 yards. I also missed one eagle by a foot, another eagle by 6 feet, a birdie by 1 foot, and my last shot of the game was a chip in from about 30 or so yards I am guessing.
edit: ooooh when someone said have it in front of me and towards the tv I was confused, but now I realize I am doing exactly that without realizing I was following the advice. lol When I "wrap around" the club head is behind my head and facing the tv. So not in front of me, but the head is facing how he said.
edit: noooooooo the ball just barelyyyyyy rolled to the left of the pin to miss a hole in one by 1 foot. On that sdame hole where I purposely lowered the %. This time it was 86.
edit: Oh man I'm going to kick some asses now. the rest of my game was already good and now I'm doing every freakin thing I want. I just played 9 more holes and I NOT ONCE had to do a putt of more than 10 feet. I had 5 birdies and 4 pars and in between those one time I missed a birdie by 1 foot and another time it was right on the HOLE missing a birdie by inches. So less than 2 feet kept me from 7 straight birdies.
I said all along how huge of a difference that stupid flaw in my swing was. I normally would be a few over par, not 5 under par for 9 holes. I'm so stoked now I want to play that hard course from the U.S. Open again, but it's late and I should stop playing. I may not be able to resist before I go to bed though. So much funner now as I can do anything I want. I alreadyw as great at putting. Now when I figure out which clubs to switch to based on the lie people are gonna have to be scared of me as that is now the only thing I need to work much on.
For the record on holes I tried to hit it 100% on I ended up achieving 100% on 15 of the 16 holes.
