Had to pull the pin on my round this weekend due to a nasty bout of the flu. But I popped down to the course yesterday for a bit of a practice.
I did a bit of work on my bunker play and was happy with my progress with the new approach. I am now feeling like I am at least as consistent with this approach as I was with the old one, so hopefully that should lead to some more consistent play on course. Still not getting quite the high flight that I am aiming for on every shot, but our practice bunker has a fairly high lip, so that will hopefully eliminate some of the frankly frightful shots I have been showing in the transition.
Working on the pitching was also good - starting to get a good feel for these shots and focussing on the rotation is good for me.
I finished up with some short putting practice - holing 6 putts from each of 6 points three feet away from the hole. Trying to work on getting that consistent and repeatable stroke on the short putts, when I think I am inclined to become a bit "handsy".
Then I had some two putt practice - I pick a point and a hole - depending on how I am feeling my start point will be anything from about 10m to 35m. Yesterday was about 25m. I had 6 balls to putt into the hole. Par is 12. Do it twice and try to beat your score. I like it because I actually go through my full routine - mark the ball, re-align it, so it feels like playing on the course.
