Yesterday I went out with a group of 6 people and played. 12 hours prior to playing, 2-3 inches of snow fell. This was my first experience with a fresh snow on the ground. Since the tee-pads were icy we shoveled aside them and played in snowy grass. For most it wasnt much of an issue but for me and one other it was... by about 8 strokes for both of us. The interesting thing is that me and this other guy are probably the most experienced and have the strongest drives. So anyways, the problem was in our legs and footing. The majority of our drives ended up higher, shorter and further to the left than we anticipated... to add to that... I was turning over a brand new destroyer which is kind of unnatural for me. I feel some of the problem was us worrying about slipping and twisting something but I feel like it was more than that. I realized how much of your body is worked into driving effectively. It isnt just your arm, wrist, snap, form. I must also actually use my leg muscles to get my distance and accuracy... and I never realized it till now.
Does anyone have any suggestions and/or corrections?
