Ok been on here for a couple of years since I got back into golf and have read everybodys "diarys" on their games and thought why not. My background is that I'm a sports nut and played most games at some stage. But for the most part my main game was cricket. When I was young fella I played golf at the same time but never really excelled. Was told that while I was trying to play both neither would ever get to the level that wanted. So I chose the game that I was better at and dropped golf. Anyway after 30 years of playing cricket I've retired from the cricket field and got back into golf all year round rather than just the winter like the last couple of years.
Having got down to 13 HC when I last played my aim now is to play to a single figure. So after I put my cards in I got 16 and by the time it settled I was again off 13. Then I decided to get fitted and have some lessons. After changing my swing(very flat) ,posture, take away, follow through etc I've never really got close to my handicap! frustrating. Have since drifted out to 15.
Anyway the club (small country club western Vic) recently got a prof in to run some clinics and for some reason what hes preaching seems to agree with me to the point I recently was 2 over for 11 holes then blew up a little. But I could see the light, I could see that I have the ability to play to that single digit handicap.
I've started to try and swing around the body more rather slide the hips through(cover drive! and block/slice out right)) and try to lead with my top hand on the down swing to stop the "over the top" fault in my swing which has been causing me to pull hook wildly of the tea in particular. Been using the V1 golf app to video and analyse my swing also.
