This one, he says, is going to straighten out his slice. He sets up, and I see the same old collapse up at the top, the steep downswing, the outside in, slice-o-matic, and of course the ball starts out left and ends up under a tree, nearly OB on the right or in a neighboring fairway. And it's twenty yards short of my drive.
I'm not a great golfer, but I know enough to stay in touch with the pro who taught me how to play. In two years, she helped me go from about a thirty to a twelve handicap, using the same set of hand me down clubs. Her "technology" is usually a lot better than whatever I can pull off the rack at the pro shop.
