I may or may not start playing again after a long layoff. My question: When did you realize that you had found the proper way to hit the ball? I'm not saying when you got good. I'm talking about that epiphany when it suddenly came to you what a swing was, the inside takeaway, the wrist cock, the release, the downward ball strike, the follow through, just happen, and that line drive 150 Yard 5-iron, became that majestic, soaring, free bird of a 200 yarder. And then suddenly, you could do it with all the clubs in your bag. Not perfect. Oh, no. Never perfect. But that feeling of wanting to shout: I can hit the 'effing ball!!! I was a scooper my entire life and never knew it. No pro could tell me what to do or what it felt like. No magazine article or book. No Golf Channel lesson. They all combined to put the ideas into my head. But suddenly, on the driving range, out of the blue, it just all came together. I still sucked, but I looked good while sucking. I'm wondering if others went through this, or did it all just come naturally? Did you always know why there was a flange and grooves on the club? I quit playing for reasons other than that. I just got a bad taste in my mouth about something I'd rather not discuss. Just curious about how others figured it out.
