Okay quick summary of the Summer of Golf.
Went for the annual tradition of playing a round with my Dad at his club Box Hill. He was dead proud cause the lesson I bought him for Christmas the previous year had managed to get his handicap under 36 (to 35) for the first time in 5 years. Started with a par and continued with one of the worst ball striking rounds I have played in recent years. Adjusted gross of 98 so still beat Mick and my Dad off the stick.
Had a couple of rounds at Rosebud with various configurations. Some semi-consistent play led me to getting a new anchor point just before Christmas. Still two shots above my low anchor and have already gone out half a shot again since then. But is fun to be a bit more regularly playing off less than 18.
Though round of the year so far goes to my effort on Saturday where I managed to salvage 30 points with 5 wipes, 6 pars and 2 doubles (off 16).
Am about due for another lesson as the driver is (largely) behaving itself. Want to go and see what clubs I might aim to update this year. Thinking new driver is a definite. Logically I should update my irons, but to be honest, I am perfectly fine with the ones that I have, so don't know if I am that keen on spending money on them.
Time for another lesson and some more stuff to work on - my review of the year just gone is that I have managed to significantly increase my distance through most of the bag, just with swing changes. I think my short game has improved (particularly putting in the second half of the year). So I really hope that I can continue to get some consolidated movement on the handicap and define playing off about 15 as "the new normal".
