@ErikF I've still got 2 weeks to buy the extended warranty if I want it but I don't think I'll get it. We'll see, it will be a last day decision. As far as having fun I'm sure it will be fun at some point but right now I'm hitting 125% of my shots fat and it's extremely maddening. Elbows are hurting because of that as well. Going to lay off for a few days.
@PC98 Sometimes the problem with hitting into a net is that the target becomes the ball rather than a distant faiway or green. This can lead to releasing the clubhead early and hitting well behind the ball (in my experience). When you're at the store or doing a trackman fitting they usually have a giant screen behind the net which makes it easier to keep your focus forward. You may want to try picturing a target beyond the net when you begin working on your short game distances, then maybe this will transition into better full swing results. Hope you find a solution that allows you to enjoy your new set-up while improving your golf game at the same time.
@PC98- I was wondering about that. I was hitting into a net yesterday to try a club and found with no target to hit to I was not getting lined up constantly and it showed it my shot dispersion. I think @GregW4900 has the right idea, need a target, fairway, green something of that sort to set to and hit to. Great idea Greg!
2 Options for that -
1) get a projector and screen behind the net.
2) Hang 5 targets on the net - washcloths or something like that. Arrange them in a + shape. That will give you hook,draw, straight, high and low targets.
Option 1 is obviously more expensive but more fun. You could even have friends over to play a round.
