    I think its gonna be down to just riding through it and keep practising.
    Im also using the gameGolf app, this is pretty good for seeing where my weak shots are and gives me pointers as to where i need to concentrate practice.

    The reason I ask is in your OP you mention trees and OOB.
    I thought maybe you were getting into trouble off the tee

    You need to work on this - everyone else on here has at least a 300 carry.

    No mate but I've seen Prognosis quite a few times. I was saying to my regular pp a while ago, "that fella looks a dead ringer for the drummer from Prognosis" so it all kind of makes sense now 😁

    Hmm don't think so I'm struggling with the game enough without worrying about macho distance of 300 yards, and how would you know that "everyone" has a carry distance of 300yards, you seen them all play? Thats amazing if you have

    Re: Im Either great or crap!! Why?

    Actually tried the new callaway epic at American Golf last week and pitted it against my current Cobra Amp cell. Now dont know if the trackman results are "helped" but my average with mine was 250-255 and the epic was 265-270, plus the dispersion was a lot tighter with the epic. £430 though, ouch!

Also thinking about it a bit more the last few bad rounds I've had have been in reasonable windy conditions that definitely seems to be an issue as well.
    There is the problem, guaranteed.

    A "slight" over the top in a lesson can easily transform into much more over the plane on the course. Out to in, too steep angle of attack and it can get worse under a bit of stress or when your body isn't moving so freely.

    Also, as a result of this you will have excess spin on the ball which will show up as an issue in the wind.

    Fix the downswing plane.
