Hit a large bucket of yellow rocks at Emerald Lakes under lights. I think it’s not too shabby. Hard to tell because , well yellow rocks and lights. Flight is higher off all clubs. Starting to hit fairways better. Pitches more accurate. Well less shotgun anyway. Distance was ok I think. We could have a game come nationals.

First golf (well range) for a month.
Seve drill completed first attempt.
Everything was good. Putting was great. Bunkersvwere great. Irons were within 2-5 meter lateral dispersion rather than the usual 10m. Just lost that 10m at least on every shot with the better lie angle.
Hmmmm

Business is going to the dogs but went to the range this arvo. Seve drill was ok. 58 degree chips complicated by my new set up with less forward leannof the shaft. Needs a lot more work. Tried “torquing” the left wrist at transition a la Zen. It’s a hard move to make. But did appear to get back my lost distance. A bit fadey at first but I think poor alignment and a strong left to right breeze.
3 qtr 9 irons pretty accurate to 100 m.
Golf tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!
*** the business.

Practice round or 22 holes at Colonial. Perfect day for golf.

Colonial was in very good nick. Greens were very dry and fast. Hardly surprising. Fairways great. My only gripe is that some of the bunkers could really do with sand.

I did not play well. Will not be at Nationals unless there is a big change. All drives were nasty nasty slices. Gave up and went to 3 wood which went ok.

Irons were mainly ok sometimes excellent.

Really need to work on pitches and chip n runs from 20-80 m. Either way too strong or way too weak.

Bunkers were excellent most of the time. Seve drill gives great confidence. Apart from a couple of airmailes due to thin layer of dust on mud base.

Putting was ok when I got used to the speed.

Didn’t keep score but it wasn’t pretty due to crap off the tee.

Toph has been taking advice from Zen, hence the swing problems.

Surely Zen's advice is excellent, but any change initially destroys one's swing.

Range today. Driver straightened out. I think it’s something to do with swaying or not moving my centre of gravity or foot pressure correctly. Or maybe setup not having correct lateral lean.
Asked my pro about Zen’s Video on torqued left wrist. He told me to stop looking at youtube videos 😄
Also practiced 7 iron chip n runs.

Boomerang today with my mate Hammer.
It was a tough little course. Boomerang is short par 35 for 9. No bunkers. But the greens are small and often domed 2 holes are severe downhills 2 high greens. In the dry conditions it was almost links golf. Anything offline would run into Trouble. No pitching had to be bump n run. But that’s had to be spot on or run off green. Tough little course.
1st 9 not good. 50. Couldn’t get the short game. Only a bogie or 2 was pretty unhappy.
2nd 9 after a pie and couple bourbons went par par par (chip in on 3rd) bogie bogie par wipe bogie double bogie for 44, 9 over and estimated 20-21 points. Friendly round no comp.
pretty happy with that.
There is hope.....
Had to tee off at 10am sorry Mads.

Gee the Gold Coast is dry. Greens are all fast and hard.
