I actually got some inspiration from Deege's notetaking and decided that to get better I needed to become more methodical about analyzing my game and addressing the deficiencies.  This seems to be the place to store a journal on the shots that aren't working so I can get some more specific help from Garth when I see him in a couple of months.

 

I had an arthroscopy on my knee last Friday so off the course until I get the all clear from the surgeon.  Consequently, I am using the time to think about what is in my bag and how I should rejig it.  Saw Jon at TGP today and now tweaking what is obviously wrong.  Wrong shaft in 2-3 hybrid, too much bounce in sand wedge and out of spec lob wedge.  Iron shaft experimentation for higher ball flight is next.

 

Once I am back on the course I will use Golfshot to track my distances more often rather than just feeding my ego on good drives.  I think I know what I hit, but as I get older I may be losing a few metres.  Also, I would like to quantify what difference the atmosphere makes.  Some days it seems the ball may be flying a club shorter and quantifying this in the first couple of holes must be an advantage.

 

I am always the first ready on the tee and first to my ball so have plenty of time to journalise without holding up anyone.

 

Currently I am off 14.9 and my lowest was 40 years ago when I was briefly off 12 so that is my first target.

Slight problem Cod.  We are normally the first group off in the very early morning and I haven't had beer for breakfast since I was in my twenties. 

 

Funnily enough that was when my cap was its lowest.  Cancel Garth and ring up CUB

Mouldy, I am a bit of a stats afficionado, but I do find it useful to know what my game is like overall.  As I think I mentioned in my thread, whenever I have a lesson, if I don't have something specific I want to work on, my pro asks me what part of my game is having the most negative effect on my score at the moment.  So I like to be able to answer that question.  I also find it really interesting to compare with other people where their respective strengths and weaknesses are.

Depending on numbers on the day, a member of said group might slip back into C grade.  Heaven forbid the handicap slope rating might even give them two shots on a hole or two.
