i thought i should jump on the bandwagon of posting a story of my golf hits and misses and attempting to play off single figures.

I restarted golf in 2010 and was off 36 and played like it. In 12 months i got down to 18. in the next 12 months  got down to 12 and sat there for 9 months and played off 9 and then went back out again. In the last 6 months i had two operations that curtailed my golf and its only since christmas have i started to play again. The next few months are rebuilding the game and game fitness and hopefully i will not need any more surgery this year.

 

Let the trials and tribulations begin.

Played in irish fourball today and we played ok but missed a few chances for a few birdies. I had 5 pars on the front nine and 4 pars and a birdie on the back. There was a couple double bogeys thrown in just to keep me on my toes. I had been trying putting one handed when warming up then using both hands and found distance control has been ok but sooner or later putting confidence will be shaken and I will start struggling again.
I have a lesson tomorrow and the first one in nearly 12 months so it will be interesting to see what I have to fix to get back on track.

Went and had a lesson this afternoon and so far there is not a lot of changes to be made but a couple minor things to fix up. One was to make sure the club is more in the fingers of the right hand , this probably was due to not a lot of golf in the last 6 months. The other thing we are working on is making sure my right arm is not pulling in close to the body on the backswing and not bending too early, the drill I used was to have a newspaper wrapped around my arm and only take a half swing and ###### my wrists earlier than I was. The newspaper then gave me feedback if I was bending my right arm too early. A couple weeks of this and another lesson and we will see how I am going.

It's clear as mud....lol......... Sort of, it's easier to show than describe. Just look at any bad swing and mine is probably there.

I'm betting the pro is a big believer in creating width on the backswing?
