Okay you golfer experts out there, it's time to put me under the microscope.
Last week I officially let the golf monster overtake and devour me. I hit the driving range at Chelsea Piers in New York City and it felt good to swing a club again. I had been a little hesitant on account of my torn ACL, but it turns out I can still throw a driver around like the spry, sun-kissed golfer I always picture myself to be. Now all I can think about is getting back on the links.
There's just one problem, though: I'm a bit rusty.
It turns out I'm one of those people that has to re-learn how to hit a golf ball at the start of each and every season. I stood over ball after ball last week, like I've done so many times before, and I thought the same motions and feelings would just come back to me. Let's just say it wasn't that easy. I made progress as the session wore on, but overall I just couldn't get in a rhythm.
So now I'm soliciting the help of all you golf gurus out there. Here is one still photo of my backswing, along with a short video of some swings I took at the driving range (special thanks to my lovely assistant Becky for the camera work). I expect some constructive criticism/advice in the comments section.
