Beautiful sunny Autumn day in Melbourne, hoping to get out and play 9 after work to see how I can play after the lesson.

Zero expectations other than to enjoy the smell of the green and the sound of my new Vision's sailing clicking off the club face..........

 

Tip of the day, dance like nobody's watching..............

 

You neglected to mention the splash sound when they land. :D

 

I hope the lesson helps you Mick. The changed action can take a while to bed in.

New grip and club position went well today. Still uncomfortable but some of the shots were pure as I have ever hit them.
Played several pitch shots and they all flew high and some of them spun quite a bit.
Scored 2 or more points on every hole bar the 18th when I lost concentration and attempted to blast my drive over the left corner bunkers. Lost ball.
The Frog was in reasonable nick. Bunkers have all got sand and are back in play. Greens still a bit soft and sandy.
Couldn't believe how still it was. Only a wisp of a northerly. On the 15th I put my drive off the blues middle right of fairway bunkers and minted a 3w to 100m from the green. Duely duffed my 3rd and bounced a wedge past the flag and into right pot. Out and 2 putt got me 7 and the first time in 3 years of playing that beast I have ever scored more than a 0. lol.

Lesson starting to show real signs of improving my game. I have received some encouragement with a good result yesterday in winter conditions.

My swing actually feels good, and the effort is more about turning my hip on the back swing, and then getting a good follow through and my weight forward on the downswing.

Putting and chipping were better as well. I'm now missing greens pin high left or right, and not short. Funny game.
