I've been unable to take this shot to the golf course expect for one out of ten rounds. More times than not, what will happen to me on the course is my ball striking becomes a two. If it is a nine on the range it becomes a two on the course. It’s very frustrating and I think there s deceleration and over swing if that makes sense..."
