when you hit a shot...
« on: December 09, 2006, 08:59:47 AM »

do you generally know where it's going before you 'look up' at it,  or is it more hit and hope you'll spot it ...

I can usually tell by how it feels coming off the club generally where it's heading. Of course sometimes I can watch it come down, know exactly where to look for it, and still not find it.

i hear ya.  the day i went to birdsfoot a while back trying to get 36 in?  after a while, i got paired into a 4some,  I hit the '1/100' drive that you know is just pured long and dead straight.  everyone was 'wow, that's a mile down the center of the fairway' ... clear skies, watch it land...

get there, ball not to be found.  should have had about a 75 yard pitch onto the green

I guess I would have to answer no.*

It depends on the swing, club, condition, etc.

Consistency is my biggest prob.

I can hit a shot and know exactly where it is without opening my eyes, and I can hit a shot, feels good, WTF, where did that go. Sad

Yes. I play a lot of evening golf during the summer when I'm chasing daylight. So when I'm teeing off at dusk I often can't see the ball coming off the club, but I'm pretty good at finding it based on how it felt when I hit it.

I usually just follow the sound of my topped shot rolling through the grass, truth be told.

I have those days when I have no clue where it went!   Disgusted

And then I have those days, when I don't have to look up to see the ball land.   Grin

I haven't played in 2 months, so I'm suspecting that option 1 would come into play now if I played.

Generally, I can know where it went by how it felt.  Typically, also, my shots go straight or slightly right; then there are those occasional way left shots....

There are times when I can tell where it is going but there are other times when I can't and normally there is no one around to be a spotter.
