I found a good garublador thread
, maybe this would be a starting point? I have monkeyed around with many of the drills on this site and I think they have helped me, I'm just looking for a way to pare down what I'm looking at so I can focus and progress at a better pace.
I found that doing the hammer pound drill and then building your throw from the hit back, like I talked about in that thread, will be the most efficient way to improve. With those two combined you'll be able to build your fundamentals relatively easily.
If anyone's looking for more resolution on what happened, I did end up fixing my grip and got my putters to fly well. It's still a bit of a struggle to do it right, but they're flying well more often than not. At the end of last summer I was even getting near 300' with my putters on my good throws.
The hammer pound drills should make the first part of that exercise a lot easier. I found the "limp arm" drill difficult to do but the hammer pounds were easy for me to incorporate. I don't think I can emphasize enough how much the drills from that post helped my weight shift. It's also worth saying that it destroyed my game for a couple of months, including the one time I played with co-workers over the summer (at the time I ironically could only get good flights out of putters). Being able to throw from a standstill like that has been extremely helpful in both understanding the technique and in adding shots to my arsenal. Early last summer I was playing on a new course and came to a flat open hole marked at 310' (I'll assume it was relatively accurate.) I was able to get within 20' with a putter drive, park it with my mids and then use a one step throwing on a hyzer to get close with my Gazelles and Teebirds. There's no way I could have done that before doing those drills.
FWIW, what I've found with trying to improve (I'm spent all my DG career trying to improve skills and technique and have never focused on score) is that once you get to that ~350' plateau, most of what you'll learn will just make you better at throwing at that plateau. All that work I did with building my throw from the hit back did little to improve my max golf D. They made it easier to throw as far as I was an I had more control and could hit the top end of my golf D more often, but they rarely improved my max golf D.
Since getting to that plateau in 2004-2005 the only thing that's improved my max golf D are the hammer pound drills. My guess is that the reason I saw the results so quickly (I did the drills for a few minutes before a round and saw immediate results) was because of the work I put in with building the rest of my throw. Had I done the hammer pound drills first my guess is that the drill from the aforementioned thread would have taken about the same amount of time, I just would have been half hitting instead of no hitting by the time I got it figured out. Optimistically, I suspect my entire 2011 season will be spent gaining consistency with "half hitting" it.
To tie it all in to the theme of the thread, on a scale from 1 to 10 I'm about at a 7 for coordination, a 6 for determination and a 3 on time to commit. Unless I do something huge like build my throw from the hit back or "get" the hammer pound, I measure my improvements on the order of years, not months.
