Having a bit of reflection on my past 2 months of Golf and not what I was hoping, but probably what I should have expected.

 

3 scores out of my last 7 have been either 36 or 35 points. Other 4 have been ordinary to say the least. 

 

24 points at Curlewis was extremely disappointing considering I had 19 points on the first (back )9. Dropping my bundle once the wind came up, and I wiped the 2nd and 3rd hole not being able to play into the wind or then left me more frustrating than I have been on a Golf Course in a long time. 

I wasn't playing well and my technical inability was exposed. 

 

So being the stubborn SOB I am, I continued on struggling to self diagnose my faults and continued to play inconsistent, frustrating golf.

 

2 weeks of Foursomes gave me some time to recover, however I was still at a loss as to why I was unable to hit a decent iron, or wedge between 120m-70m. 

 

I was completely helpless,  call it yips, unable to focus, or hit the shot. I considered hitting 7 wood bump shots, and couldn't hit those either.

 

I then thought back to a similar experience a few years back, and I remembered Pete the Pro's advice about my grip being too weak, and to firm it up with my right hand.

 

It took a hole or two, but the wild slice, blade/shank, was gone. I was hitting my irons ok, and all my other clubs improved as well.

 

Scraped together 35 points and hit some really good shots on the 2nd 9. Even broke 100.  

 

I also found some form with the putter, not making all the putts, but the big miss past the hole was not there, and I got a better set up and stroke going. Follow through there is key, a full stroke, not jabbing it or pulling up after you putt the ball.

 

So back to next week, looking forward to playing 18 holes with the stronger grip, and making it easier to get close to the green on the approach shots. Best flag will drop off, so need a good score. 

 

Not expecting to score less than 95. It's there, I know I can do it, but 36 points will be ok.
