pound the driver but struggle with the irons!
It always gets back to a violation of some key principle the programs address. One thing that is overlooked, not because Bertholy doesn't mention it enough (he does) is the role of the mind. He says the number one enemy of playing golf is mental tension. Peter mentioned that to me in his reply to my post/rant referenced above.
Looking back over the years to even when I first played golf, I have always felt the most comfortable with a driver in my hand, and even before Bertholy and my improvement, loved to hit it and didn't do that bad. But then I would get out in the fairway for my approach, and I would think - "don't ruin this perfect drive with your approach". I would always be more tense over my approach shots than drivers. I realized this summer there is still some of that "current" running below the surface. So the angst attached to my iron shots causes the hit impulse to be more prevalent than in my driver shots.
Re-doubling my efforts with program c and a better mental process thanks to clearkey has helped a lot and I am finally starting to hit some really nice iron shots again. Carey Mumford says that often what we think is a habit isn't. We need to make sure we have buil;t to the habit level, otherwise the old bad habits will surface under pressure. I found this to be the case with my iron play and the gaps in my mental approach out on the course.
